People want to know what goes into getting a construction site cleaned up. Here is a short list:
CLEANING MOUNTAINS OF DUST
Dust is annoying. It’s irritating and it gets everywhere. And that’s not an understatement… dust really is ubiquitous on any construction site, whether its sawdust or drywall dust. Proper cleanup happens with the industrial equipment that IZsam utilizes. You might think you’re a master duster by how dust-free you keep your home, but trust us when we say that construction dust is truly on another level.
So you’ve got a new building with carpets. Are you using a Dirt Devil stick vacuum, or an industrial shop vac to clean them? We can guarantee you that the way you clean your carpets can easily be the difference between a clean environment and allergy heaven. Your carpets will never be as clean as they are on the first day that you move into your newly constructed space, so you’re doing them a disservice if you don’t start them off perfectly clean.
CLEANING THE LIGHTS
Remember all that dust we talked about earlier? It really does get everywhere, including on your lights. Lights aren’t something that a lot of people remember to clean, but it is an essential part of getting a building ready for use after construction. This becomes especially important when considering presentation. If you’re a commercial building owner who might be housing tenants or businesses, you don’t want the interior brightness to be dampened by dirty lights that haven’t been cleaned.
SPOT CLEANING WALLS
Construction can take a long time. It also involves heavy machinery, and a large number of workers. Your walls are apt to get scuffed, dirtied, or “stained” with dust, especially when dealing with long-term construction jobs where certain particulates have time to settle into the drywall. This is why our team spot cleans each wall. You may not have noticed the effect that the construction had on them until you see how much clearer they look after having been cleaned by IZsam.
CLEANING INTERIOR GLASS
When you walk into a new building, the windows are usually crystal clear — but they didn’t come that way. Construction dirties up new glass windows quickly, but IZsam will make sure that they’re shiny and perfectly transparent.
This is yet another aspect of construction cleaning where “normal” dusting just isn’t enough. Cabinets should be kept sanitary because they often contain food, dining supplies, or other cleaning materials. You’d be surprised at how many germs you leave in the open if you don’t give them a professional grade dusting and scrubbing treatment. As a regular part of IZsam post-construction cleanup, we scrub and clean the cabinets until we are absolutely certain there’s no dust or particles — and then we do it again, just to be sure.
CLEANING AND DUSTING THE VENTS
If you’re moving into a brand new home, commercial building, or newly renovated room, you don’t want to get off to a bad start by having poor air quality. Cleaning the vents is an essential part of getting a building ready for everyday use. This is a not an easy job for an inexperienced cleaner, but one in which IZsam has extensive experience.
Consider your hard floors. Do you think your existing or potential tenants will be impressed if they walk into a brand new or newly renovated building, only to find floors that don’t look new? Dust can be extremely easy to spot on hard floors, an obvious indicator that somebody didn’t pay close attention to detail when they were cleaning. We don’t want anyone to think that about us or you. We make sure we conduct dust and damp mopping to all of the hard floors in the building.
CLEANING UP CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS
Most construction crews do a fairly good job at clearing out a majority of the visible junk after a job, but we typically find quite a bit of missed construction debris, such as wood scraps, boards, or tool components when the construction company finished the job. How would you like to walk through a newly constructed home, only to end up stepping on a nail that somehow went unnoticed? When IZsam is responsible for your post-construction cleanup job, we clean up all of the debris scraps left behind, including the debris you didn’t see.
CLEANING THE CEILING
This is a difficult cleaning job that most people don’t think to do, or might not even be capable of doing it. While we might not be the first choice to clean the ceiling of a 300-foot vaulted cathedral, we’re quite experienced and capable of handling the ceilings found in most normal residential or commercial buildings, and this is important. If dust from the construction process settles into your ceilings, you may find that same dust raining down on you when you least expect it… not the kind of surprise people want in a new home or renovated building.
CLEANING AND POLISHING RESTROOM FIXTURES
Okay, cleaning bathrooms isn’t the worst part of a post-construction cleaning job, since the bathrooms typically haven’t really been used. But still… who wants to bend over and clean toilets? You may not want to do it but we do, because we want every building we clean to look, feel and smell brand new. That’s why we not only clean the toilets and sinks, we also polish them to white, shiny perfection.
