Post-Construction Cleaning Done Right is a 3-Step Process

Post-Construction Cleaning Done Right is a 3-Step Process

posted 06/25/2019

With summer being high season for construction, it's important to make sure you're an intelligent consumer of post-construction cleaning services.

A competent cleaning service will do a rough cleaning, final cleaning and touch-up cleaning to provide you with an environment that's attractive to your employees and customers alike.

A rough cleaning consists of removing construction debris, such as:

  • Dust
  • Caulking
  • Paint Overspray
  • Adhesives

During this phase, we also clean:
  • Windows
  • Glass Partitions
  • Sliding Glass Doors
  • Frames
  • Mullions (the vertical elements that divide windows from one another)

When it comes to a final cleaning, we repeat glass cleaning and then clean interior surfaces to make the space usable following a renovation -- move-in ready in the case of new construction. Cabinetry and other storage spaces are cleaned with a microfiber rag and a neutral cleaner.

We also clean tops of cabinets and storage spaces by vacuuming them to remove any dust or debris that may have collected since we performed the rough clean.

As for bathrooms, we clean them from top to bottom, including floors, fixtures, counters, mirrors and wall tile.

The last step in our final cleaning is to make the baseboards and floors shine. For that purpose, we use cleaning solutions that are harmless to the surfaces we're cleaning.

After the dust settles — about a week after our final cleaning — we come back for a touch-up cleaning that consists of wiping down flat surfaces (countertops, walls, windows) to make sure your space has no more dust and debris. The touch-up cleaning also removes smudges and fingerprints that may have accumulated on glass surfaces since the final cleaning.

By making a rough cleaning, final cleaning and touch-up cleaning a part of your renovation or construction plan, you'll get the most out of your new space.

  • Implement a 13-step restroom care program
  • Deliver expert services from vacuuming and dusting to the advanced floor and carpet care

It’s Construction Season, Are You Prepared?

It’s Construction Season, Are You Prepared?

With a busy building season upon us, post-construction cleanup is critical for safety and environmental purposes.
The typical three-step process is:

1. Rough Clean: During this initial phase you should remove and clean all construction debris including dust, caulking, paint overspray, and adhesives. Windows, sliding glass doors, and glass partitions are all thoroughly cleaned. Typically, frames and mullions are included during this cleaning phase as well.

2. Final Clean: This phase begins with a repeat of all glass cleaning followed by an in-depth cleaning of all interior surfaces. At the completion of this phase, the space is usually considered move-in ready. Areas to be detailed will consist of:

  • Cabinetry: each cabinet will be cleaned inside and out with a microfiber rag and a neutral cleaner, and the tops will be vacuumed to remove any accumulated dust or debris
  • Bathrooms: all bathrooms are cleaned from top to bottom, including floors, fixtures, tubs, showers, counters, mirrors, and any wall tile.
  • Baseboards and Floors: every baseboard and floor is detailed with the utmost care. The type of flooring dictates the cleaning medium to ensure that no damage is caused.

3. Touch-Up Clean: It's good to go back in and wipe down all horizontal surfaces to assure that no dust has settled or fingerprints missed.

Don’t Let April Showers Create a Mess Post-Construction

Don’t Let April Showers Create a Mess Post-Construction

April showers bring a lot of mud to a construction site. Not only does mud create more slips or falls, the muck makes it harder to maneuver equipment around the job site. Muddy footprints on new flooring is a big no-no. Mud or not, your hard work can’t be fully enjoyed by new tenants until it’s gotten a good post-construction, final and/or touchup cleaning.

Contact Team Cleanz. We check every box to get the job done right – guaranteed. We got our start detailing cars for very picky car lovers, eliminating all evidence of dirt and dust from every nook or cranny. It’ this fine level of detail and need to please that we bring to each and every project for discerning retailers, and businesses, restaurant and building owners in six states.

Drones – Your Eye in the Sky

Drones – Your Eye in the Sky

Construction and real estate companies regularly have used airplanes or helicopters to get distance shots of construction sites. Now industrial drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are taking the place of these traditional flyovers at about a quarter of the cost. Drones aid in getting precise detail, whether measuring stockpiles, tracking progress, inspecting roofs and facades, surveying sites before excavating, or communicating with decision-makers. It’s also safer to send a drone in the air instead of a person on a crane or the top of a building.

Single propeller drones are the least inexpensive and easiest to operate, and hexacopters (six propellers) offer greater stability. Some employ imaging systems, mapping software, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. Types of imaging systems include photogrammetry and LiDAR. Photogrammetry takes photos to build 3D models, while LiDAR uses rapid pulses of laser light to build a ground map. Be an early adopter: make drones work on the job site. When your construction project is completed, contact Team Cleanz, for a precise post-construction clean that can be seen from any altitude.

Construction Delays Due to Brrrrrrrrrrrr

Construction Delays Due to Brrrrrrrrrrrr

Today, as I’m writing this in the warmth of my office, an Arctic blast is pummeling Pittsburgh with windchills of -20o. What about the people who must work outdoors, like construction workers? According to the Mayo Clinic, frostbite can occur after in less than 30 minutes with temperatures at -16o. Then there’s the huge problem of slipping. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says that 82% of all falls require at least one day away from work due to ice, sleet or snow and uneven surfaces.

Cold weather also affects the actual construction site, which impacts the bottom line. We talked about how the winter elements create more safety hazards, they also slow down work. Poor driving conditions delay delivery of building supplies. In frigid months, equipment doesn’t start at all or takes longer to warm up. If your timeline is being pushed back due to weather delays, warmer weather is ahead. This is the time to consider post construction cleanup from Team Cleanz. We put the polish and shine on your hard work.

Why Is There a Christmas Tree at a Construction Site

Why Is There a Christmas Tree at a Construction Site?

A construction Christmas tree is attached to the final I-beam as it’s hoisted into place. This official observance of a topping-off ceremony has a connection to an old Scandinavian custom of placing a tree on top of a newly constructed building to show that it still has a connection to the forest. It can also be attributed

to Native Americans, who believe that no structure should be higher than a tree. In the U.S., this signifies that a construction milestone was safely reached. It’s also a symbol of good luck for the remainder of the construction project and for its future occupants. Regardless of your holiday traditions, Team Cleanz wishes you a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah or Happy Kwanzaa, and a very happy, healthy and prosperous new construction 2019.

Robots Coming to Your Construction Site Soon

The Automated Construction Site?

According to Construction Dive, Boston Dynamics is predicting that 1,000 of its all-electric SpotMini robot dogs will be produced per year by the end of 2019. That means that these 3-ft. tall robots with 3D vision and 17 articulated joints will be doing far more complex tasks on a 90-minute charge than just fetching a hammer.

Japan is facing a manual labor shortage crisis, and the HRP-5P humanoid robot by Japan’s Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Institute can install drywall independently. Although not nearly as flexible as a human, it compensates by having numerous joints, correcting for falls and slips, and having a field of view beyond that of a person’s. It’s expected that when AIST technology becomes privatized, that many more exciting breakthroughs will occur. Technology appears to be alleviating current labor shortages. A recent survey from the Associated General Contractors of America and Autodesk indicated that virtual construction, offsite prefabrication, Building Information Modeling (BIM), drones, GPS, laser-guided equipment, and 3D printing is being introduced to help ease labor shortages.

Cleaning Hidden Dirt in the Office

Top 5 Places Dirt Hides in the Workplace

For a healthier and happier 2018, begin the year with a fresh start by remembering these often-missed areas in the office that need special attention.

Legs of chairs. Whether it's an executive chair or guest chair in the reception area, the seat area is often wiped down but not the legs.

Phones. A lot of nasty crud collects on the handset and the cradle of phones, which makes them perfect items to disinfect.

Vent cover. Ductwork probably gets periodic cleaning but don't forget the vent grilles that catch dirt, dust, and cobwebs.

Picture frames. The tops of picture frames become perfect little ledges to collect dust.

Blinds.Your building owner probably washes the windows a few times a year. But what about the blinds or window coverings?

Behind doors. What a convenient place for dust and dirt to hide behind!

Office art, sculpture, knick-knacks.Yes, they're great to look at but they need to be cleaned.

Baseboards. Flooring and carpeting get regular attention -- baseboards not so. Not only are they dust catchers, baseboards get easily scuffed and marked.

Windowsills. Don't let your view be marred by dead bugs, dust, moisture, and soot.

Trust the post-construction Team of Clean -- Team Cleanz. We go to post-construction and pre-move-in job sites all over the greater Pittsburgh metro area as well as out of state locations -- office buildings, warehouses, restaurants, retail stores, and more -- and find all the places where dirt and dust hide.

Clean Office Windows

A Spotless Reputation for Clean Starts with Windows

It's obvious that clean windows make a great first impression. A post-construction window cleaning and detailing is an obvious must-do. Removing stubborn factory labels, dust, cement, caulk, and more takes special skill and patience, especially with today's high-tech glass. But what about maintaining clean windows? A lot has to do with whether your windows are located close to a highway, situated near professional landscaping and shrubbery, spotted by rain's mineral deposits, and affected by the type of activity inside the building. Here is a typical schedule based on the type of building:  office buildings, twice a year; retail stores, once a month; restaurants, every two weeks; and healthcare facilities, monthly. Team Cleanz reminds you that it's always time to Contact us today. about your post-construction cleanup projects, even last-minute ones.

Indoor Air Quality

Protecting the health and safety of a building’s occupants is of paramount importance. Along with the obvious post-construction headaches, like drywall dust, every post-construction job site needs to be CLEAN and that includes the air. Did you know that a typical office environment contains 30,000 to 50,000 particles of dust larger than 0.5 microns? During a renovation, that increases to 700,000 to 1 million particles per cubic foot!

Calculating the right dumpster size

Trick of the Trade, Part Two

Just What Can You Throw in a Dumpster?

Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that U.S. companies generate 136 million tons of building-related construction and demolition waste per year, with 92% of that waste attributed to renovation and demolition? Did you also know that contractors get free pickup of old or new construction materials by Construction Junction, which operates a reuse retail store and recycling center in Pittsburgh’s East End?

Hauling companies allow demolition, construction, roofing, landscaping and scrap metal materials in dumpsters but no electronics and no fluorescent bulbs including CFLs, which all contain a small amount of mercury. Anything with Freon needs to be drained.

Pennsylvania's Covered Device Recycling Act, enacted in 2010, prohibits the disposal of televisions, all types of computers (including tablets), and monitors and accessories, such as printers. Cell phones are exempt from the law. Devices covered by the law must now be recycled either through designated electronic recycling facilities, through the device's manufacturer or during special electronic recycling collection events.

Evolution E-Cycling is a Pennsylvania-based R2, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 certified computer and electronics recycling company that serves all types of businesses. It also has a data-wiping service to protect your information. Along with pick-up services, you can also drop off items at any Guardian Protection Storage facility in western Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC), Pennsylvania’s oldest grassroots environmental organization, sponsors hard-to-recycle events throughout western Pennsylvania, to learn more and to see the schedule, click here.

Calculating the right dumpster size

Trick of the Trade, Part One

Calculating the Right Dumpster Size

Dumpsters are sized by yards and hold X cubic yards depending on the size selected. As a visual comparison, one cubic yard equals 27 bags of mulch.

> A hinged door always makes it easier to walk in debris. Just remember to leave enough room to open the door!

> Don’t undersize a dumpster and don’t overfill – both can be expensive mistakes. There’s no discount to order a second dumpster, expect to pay full price. And if you overfill you may have to pay a fee.
