Cleaning after a crime

After we had our home burgled I had to clean it from top to bottom. It felt kind of dirty at home, as though all of our possession had been contaminated by the crime. I know that everyone whose home is broken into or the victim of a crime at home goes through similar feelings of creepiness and a need to clean. I thought it might be useful to start a blog to discuss how to clean the house or the best cleaning services to use to help your house feel like a home again. It should be useful to anyone who has gone through a bad experience and needs a fresh start in their own beloved home.

Why Hire A Post Construction Cleaning Crew After Your Home Remodelling Project Is Completed

Warren Nguyen

If you've recently undertaken a home remodelling project, you'll be keen to get on with decorating and furnishing your newly renovated place.  However, before you can do so, you'll need to tidy-up.  This can be a daunting task, especially if you've carried out extensive work, such as removing internal walls, ripping out bathrooms or re-fitting your kitchen.  Bearing this in mind, you may want to consider hiring the services of a professional post construction cleaning company.  But what can you expect from such a contractor and is it worth the expense?

Post construction cleaners

Post construction clean-up crews take the strain out of your DIY project by removing the debris that's left behind and leaving the site ready and waiting for you to move on to the next phase of your remodelling job.  Dirty jobs that will be undertaken by the post construction crew include:

  • providing, filling, and removing skips
  • helping with demolition of internal structures and removing associated debris
  • providing trucks to remove substantial quantities of demolished brickwork, plasterboard etc

Post construction cleaning companies will also arrange for salvage and recycling of items such as:

  • drywall gypsum
  • old masonry
  • wooden structures, including beams
  • landscaping debris (brush, dead bedding plants, tree stumps)

Once the heavy stuff has been taken away and the site is left clear, there will still be a considerable amount of work to do before you can set about decorating and furnishing your rooms.  The final part of the post construction cleaning process takes care of all this for you and entails onerous, time-consuming tasks such as:

  • washing windows
  • removing dust
  • vacuuming, mopping, waxing, and polishing floors
  • power washing and top to bottom cleaning of bathroom and kitchen fittings
  • scrubbing walls
  • wiping down kitchen cupboard and worktops
  • cleaning out fireplaces and chimneys

The outside space of your property may need cleaning too, following removal of all the construction debris, and the post construction cleaning crew will give your decking, porch and garage a thorough clean-up too if necessary. 

The fee charged by the post construction cleaning company will be more than recouped in the time that you'll save by not having to do all this work yourself.

In conclusion

If you are planning undertaking an extensive home remodelling project and are not keen on the prospect of tidying up and cleaning the place before you can get on with the fun aspect of decorating and choosing your new furnishings, why not hire a post construction cleaning firm to do the work for you?
