Post Construction Cleaning

Post Construction Cleaning Services and Why Your Project Needs It

Let’s face it. Even before the first nail hits the board the construction process can be messy. After the last construction crew leaves the job site, someone needs to deal with the dirt, dust, hazardous waste, and construction debris.

That is why it’s important to hire the right people for post construction cleaning services.

Construction cleaning is a service that requires a special type of equipment. At Mayfair Building Services, our trained professionals can handle any messy industrial cleaning job.  

Why is Post Construction Cleaning So Important?

Whether you are building brand new, or considering remodeling your home or commercial building, it’s important to book thorough construction cleaning for the post construction phase so your new place looks and feels its very best.

Construction cleaning is vital to successfully transitioning to business as usual around your home or commercial building. Leaving unsightly messes can be distracting to visitors at home, and potentially upset employees at work. A messy space can lead to a cluttered mind.

Most importantly, it’s dangerous to leave that sort of debris lying around.

Once your home or commercial building is close to completion, it’s a good idea to have a detailed cleaning after the commercial contractors leave. This is commonplace in the construction business. 

What’s Included in Post Construction Cleaning?

Post construction cleaning should deal with any debris left behind from the commercial contractors. This is so you can start fresh and feel good in your new space.

One of the biggest parts of post construction cleaning is trash pick-up. It’s a good idea to do this after every phase of construction to ensure the area stays clean and organized. Remember, a clean construction site is a safe one.


Post Construction CleaningAnother major aspect of post construction cleaning services is the removal of hazardous waste.

A construction contractor may not have the expertise or proper equipment to safely remove hazardous materials. Here at Mayfair Building Services, we have the right equipment to remove hazardous materials safely and efficiently from your construction site for a thorough industrial cleaning.

Interior cleaning is also a big part of post construction cleaning and industrial cleaning. This includes dusting walls, floors, cabinets, ducts, vents, and any other surfaces.

Finally, a good exterior clean is the last part of the post construction cleaning. This involves cleaning walkways, entryways, patios, and more.

Post construction cleaning is a series of different cleaning phases. But how many phases are there, and what exactly does each phase entail? 

Post Construction Cleaning Phases 

There are three phases in industrial cleaning services.

  1. The rough interior clean. This prepares the home or commercial building for its final detailed cleaning. This includes tasks such as removing construction debris (loose boards and scraps), sweeping the floors, preparing the floors for carpet or flooring, window washing, and dusting.
  2. The final interior cleaning. This is a detailed cleaning after construction completely wraps up.
    The final interior cleaning includes:

        • Removing any lingering debris
        • Vacuuming and cleaning carpets
        • Cleaning floors
        • Wall washing
        • Wiping down all kitchen and bathroom surfaces
        • Cleaning window sills
        • Removing adhesive from doors, windows, and appliances
        • Bathroom cleaning
        • Removing dust from vents, ductwork, light fixtures, and ceiling fans

        Remember, a quality construction cleaning company pays attention to every last detail!

    3. The exterior construction cleaning. This involves removing all lumber, trash, and remaining debris from the entire property. This includes soft washing and pressure washing the patios, driveways, and other exterior surfaces.

    How Much Does Post Construction Cleaning Cost?

    Much like construction, pricing can vary depending on the location and city you’re in. This also depends on the type of cleaning you want. A light cleaning can be less expensive than a deep cleaning, but you may not get the level of detailed cleaning that you want. 

    The cost of post construction cleaning services depends on many factors:

    • The size of your residential home or commercial building
    • The type of building
    • Experience of the cleaning company
    • Cost of supplies
    • Geographic location
    • Condition of the property
    • Level of detail required

    When you hire a cleanup crew, they will work with the site manager or superintendent to figure out exactly what they want done. 

    The cleanup crew will need to know what kind of time they have, and whether there is water or electricity available. Having to truck in water or generators will affect pricing. 

    A post-construction cleanup job for a small residential property may cost $300-$600. Larger homes may cost $600-$1000. It’s important to note that these prices vary. 

    Much like construction costs, post construction cleaning pricing deals in square footage. For larger commercial buildings, a rough interior cleanup may cost $0.10-$0.30 per square foot. 

    So, if you have a 25,000-square-foot building, that may cost $2,500-$7,500.

    If it’s a 100,000-square-foot building, that may cost $10,000-$30,000.

    Another small detail that can be overlooked is window cleaning prices may increase when it’s above the second floor.

    Final detailed cleaning can be more expensive, so it’s important to budget accordingly.

    Every Cleaning Phase Is Important

    The main goal of construction cleaning is to pay attention to every detail.

    It’s to make sure every nook and cranny is clean, so all you have to worry about is how you’ll enjoy your brand-new space.

    Presentation is the most important aspect when it comes to new construction or remodeling. Remember, it all depends on how many phases of cleaning you want. 

    Here at Mayfair Building Services, we guarantee a quality construction cleanup so you can focus on craftsmanship. Not the debris.
