Fall is one of the most popular times of year for home renovations, so if your home is currently under the hammer you’re probably thinking about what your home will look like after the work is complete. Home improvement projects are incredibly exciting, but there’s one aspect of it that a lot of people dislike: the post-construction cleaning!
It’s no secret that home renovations lead to a lot of dust, dirt, and mess in the home, and it can be a task getting your home back to normal after renovating. Here are a few tips to help you put the pieces back together as efficiently as possible, so you can enjoy a fresh, dust-free home when the work is complete!
Hire a post-construction cleaning specialist
Renovation projects are stressful enough, so rather than taking on the job of deep-cleaning the house yourself, why not simply hire a post-construction cleaning specialist to do it for you? The post-reno clean-up will require everything from wiping down the walls, to polishing all the light fixtures, to cleaning upholstery and inside your cupboards, to vacuuming and cleaning the floors and baseboards; essentially tackling every area of the home to get rid of dust and dirt that’s accumulated. Below is an example of a property we recently cleaned after construction in North Vancouver!
Try to clean up as you go along
There’s nothing worse than having a huge mountain of organizing to do when your renovation work is complete. Try to keep things as neat and tidy as possible as you go along, by getting rid of unused materials and regularly sweeping the floor. Being organized will make the clean-up job that bit easier and help create a safer home.
Prepare to clean the whole home
Even if you’re only renovating the kitchen, you will still need to clean the whole home. Dust and dirt will get everywhere and the mess will easily make its way around the house. Post-construction cleaning is also a great opportunity to generally tidy up and organize the house, so your whole home feels fresh and brand new.
Wait until the builders have left to do your final clean
If you’re planning on booking post-construction cleaning specialists to come in and clean your home, or you’re going to do it yourself, wait until all the work has been completed until you do the final clean. The last thing you want is to have to go over it twice!
