You likely realize that your workplace needs to be regularly cleaned. But when your workplace includes regularly destroying things and putting them back together – or building them from scratch – cleaning isn’t always at the top of your list. Still, construction sites need to be cleaned just like any other business. In addition to keeping conditions safe for your employees, it makes things look that much more attractive to inspectors and clients. While you may not do a major cleaning every day, there are certain milestones when your construction site may need a little extra TLC. Here are the four biggest cleaning milestone for construction sites.
4 Biggest Cleaning Milestones for Construction Sites
- Preparation It’s not unheard of to come into a job that needs to be cleaned up before it’s begun. Whether that includes hauling away demolition debris, cleaning surfaces that need to be refinished or refined, or just getting the site prepped, starting with a clean site can help the job progress smoothly.
- Inspection When you have building inspects or zoning commissions coming through your construction site, it’s important to ensure that you are meeting all safety standards. In addition to meeting safety standards all the time – and we’re sure you do – having an especially clean site helps to give the impression that everything is in order. While cleaning may seem somewhat nit-picky when you’re in the midst of getting things ready for inspection, there’s nothing like an inspector who walks in believing you’ve got everything squared away. A pre-inspection cleaning is a milestone we firmly believe all construction sites benefit from hitting.
- Final Walk-through How clean your site needs to be at the time of your final walkthrough likely depends on what kind of client you’re working with. Perhaps, if you’re showing the project to a zoning commission, they may react differently than a homeowner. While it’s at your discretion just *how* clean things need to be at this point, especially if work is still ongoing, you’ll want to do clean up before you try to obtain approval to complete the project.
- Completion When your construction job is done, whether you’re presenting a finished product for sale or readying the site for future occupancy, you’ll want it to look its best. This directly impacts your bottom line; the better the site looks, the more you may earn and the more referrals you’re likely to garner. A commercial cleaning company is more than worth the money when it comes to this exciting milestone.
