Everything you Need to Know About Builders Cleans

Posted on 27th March 2014 by Direct Cleaning Services

If you operate in the construction or renovation industry then you will know just how messy and untidy things can get. It can’t be helped, and there are many times constraints involved with your work which leaves you little time for clear-up procedures and cleaning. That’s where builders cleans come in handy – in this article we will explain in full exactly what a builders clean is and how it can be beneficial to you.

What is it?

Whether you’re involved in building new homes and offices or have simply been tasked with renovating older properties there is always a mountain of dust and rubbish which accumulates. To get the room looking as fresh and ready as possible, as well as making the most of your hard work in terms of construction, then it needs to be properly cleaned.

This involves everything from sweeping and vacuuming to the cleaning of windows. Windows are especially important as dust and grime can easily build up during construction work, any mess or moisture left over will certainly create mould and spoil the good work you’ve already done.

When you are considering a builders clean then you should have a site assessment to ensure that both parties are clear on what needs to be done. The best methods for cleaning can then be established with appropriate materials and equipment agreed upon for each specific project – whether this is different chemicals or an industrial vacuum.

Who needs it?

Many different sectors of the construction industry can utilise builders cleans including:

  • Property developers
  • Restoration specialists
  • Kitchen and bathroom specialists
  • Independent tradesmen and builders
  • Construction companies
  • Shop fitting specialists

What are the benefits?

The most obvious benefit in getting a builders clean is that the hard work done – whether you’re fitting a bathroom or plastering older properties – is the focus; with all the dust, excess material, offcuts and mess cleared away the results highlight the work you’ve carried out. Rather than looking like a construction site it will simply look as it should; fresh, brand new and ready to use.

Beyond the impeccable standards of cleanliness you can expect from the floors to the windows you will save yourself time and manpower. Dedicated cleaners perform these duties every day and can bring all of their expertise to bear, this means that your craftsmen and workers can quickly move onto their next piece of work without worrying about the mess they have created. You get more of your work done in less time, essentially meaning that a builders clean can pay for itself.

Your client will notice the high standards of work as well as the clean results, allowing them to decorate, move in furniture or have viewings as quickly as possible. Satisfied customers will return to you with their business if they know they can continue to get high levels of workmanship as well as cleanliness.
