Are you in the midst of either a new build construction project or having your workplace remodeled? Are you wondering about how to tackle the construction cleaning required during and after your construction is completed? Your worksite will need to be cleaned up a number of times during the project to remove the piles of debris and dust. It’s why we are talking about the 2 essential phases of construction cleaning.
The 2 Essential Phases of Construction Cleaning
Cleaning during your construction project is just as important as cleaning before moving into your workplace. Construction cleaning is generally divided into 2 phases: the rough clean and the post-construction or pre-move-in clean. Halfway through your construction project, a rough cleaning should take place and often aligns with the timing of when your inspection is needed. The second phase of cleaning occurs once all of the construction is complete and you are preparing for the business to move into that space.
Phase 1: Rough Construction Cleaning
This cleaning takes place while the job site is still under construction and before any finishes go in. Construction steps like framing, electrical, plumbing, and drywall would be happening during this phase. This is the period in the construction timeline when a lot of dust and debris can easily take over a space, yet you need to get your worksite cleaned up ahead of any building inspections.
Clean-up during the rough construction phases allows for removal of debris to better facilitate the inspector’s work and enable them to easily see the completed projects. It will also allow the next stage of the construction activities to progress smoothly and uninhibited.
Phase 2: Post-Construction Cleaning
Thorough post-construction cleaning for your workplace will take place after your entire construction project has been completed. This final construction cleaning will make your new space look fantastic. Every surface in your building will be cleaned. There will still be a lot of waste, dust, and debris to take care of during this post-construction cleaning phase. Cleaning during this time can take many hours or days depending on the size of your construction venture.
Unlike cleaning your office on a daily or weekly basis, a construction project will leave dust and dirt in every section of your workplace, requiring a lot of vacuuming, wiping, and maybe even scrubbing to make your place sparkle.
It’s such an exciting time when you build from scratch or remodel a space to work perfectly for your business. Having a clean workplace after this rough construction phase will make the inspection proceed more quickly and the next part of the construction come together easier. Then when the entire construction project has wrapped up, a final post-construction cleaning will create a finished remodel or new build that is professional and attractive. Moving into the workspace after this phase of cleaning will provide a comfortable and effortless transition.
