Post Renovation Cleaning


Dust. Dirt. Debris. A renovation project can create a lot of cleanup. The project isn’t over until all the detritus is cleared and your home or business is looking its best. Ensure that your structural and aesthetic improvements are displayed in their best light by choosing a post construction cleaning service that offers a proper clean for properties in need. Many construction companies will offer a cursory cleanup after their part of the project is complete. However, their specialism lies elsewhere. It is most often prudent to hire professional cleaners to give the property a final clean before it returns to its typical purpose. Nancie Brown & Associates is a veteran residential and commercial cleaning service that specializes in post renovation cleaning. From Santa Barbara to Big Bear Lake, Oxnard to Laguna Niguel, we apply our expertise for families and residences across Greater Los Angeles and the wider Southern California area.


Things to Know About Post Renovation Cleaning

Renovation is a messy business, and just because you can’t see the dirt doesn’t mean it isn’t there. A proper post renovation cleaning will sweep from ceiling to floor, inside and out. Power washing the building exterior, comprehensive window cleaning, power sweeping and washing parking lots, walkways, and any parking structures, floor and carpet cleaning, cleaning fixtures, and dusting and cleaning pipes, ductwork, and fixtures. Upgrading a building increases its appeal and value, but it can also be a double-edged sword: the newer materials that are often used in renovations can require different cleaning processes in order to keep in top condition. Any post renovation cleaning team you hire should have the know-how to ensure that the cleaning process does no damage and preserves the upgraded materials. This means using the proper cleaning materials. The cleaning solutions, cloths, and equipment should all be chosen for the job and safe for the materials being cleaned.


Another important aspect of post renovation cleaning that is sometimes overshadowed is safety. The cleaning team will often need to use ladders or other apparatus to reach high fixtures. Appropriate safety equipment like safety vests, hardhats, and work boots are essential. Your cleaning team should be used to working on construction sites and able to adhere to safety protocols. Make sure, too, that the cleaning company you’re considering will be able to coordinate their timing and, if necessary, work with and around other teams. Experienced post renovation cleaning companies have an intimate understanding of how project timelines work and can be flexible in their work schedule. You need team players when you’re working on large scale projects.


How Do You Clean after a Renovation?

There are multiple steps to a successful building or house cleaning after a renovation. After all, construction dust can be extremely stubborn and invasive, getting everywhere.

  • Clean the walls— if your walls have been newly painted, they’ll need to be dry dusted. Older paint can be wiped down with a damp towel. Towels wrapped around extension dusters or brooms can clean the high places that are out of reach. Walls that feature textured wallpapered or similar material will need to be either vacuumed by the brush attachment. Other wallpapers should be wiped down with a damp cloth once they have been spot checked to ensure they don’t respond negatively to a little moisture.
  • Vacuuming— Carpeted floors will need several passes with the vacuum. Wood, tile, or linoleum floors should be mopped after vacuuming.
  • Furniture— any upholstered furniture left covered in the property during the works should be cleaned with a vacuum’s upholstery attachment. Remember to do the same for mattresses, fabric window treatments, and similar accessories.
  • Light fixtures— unless new fixtures have been installed, they will need to be taken down and cleaned. Ceiling fan blades should also be cleaned.
  • Vents— all air vents should be removed and cleaned with warm, soapy water.
  • Miscellany— wood and metal furniture, ornaments, and other items should be wiped down with a damp rag.
  • Air filters— it’s important to check on the status of any filters in the premises. They can sometimes be removed during the renovation process. Missing filters can cause damage to the whole circulation system. Filters that were left up during the process should be replaced.
