Construction industry, as everyone knows, offers the best and yet the hardest opportunities but at the same time the most challenging job available especially for commercial cleaner. Not only that, construction site clean-up projects and activities can be proved as one of the most profitable aspect of commercial cleaning business if it is properly organized and structured.

Take note, new construction clean up and even the existing cleaning jobs are available anywhere. But then job is not until cleaning is over!! Thought the workers and contractors are already exhausted after a long day of constructing and building establishments and houses, still it is their responsibilities to clean up the area. For small project, this isn’t a big deal. But for big projects, it is. Just imagine you’re going to deal with the dirt, trash, dust, scuff marks, stickers, smudges, and all other mess around the area. It is not easy at all especially when you’ve already used your energy all day long.

So, it is better to prepare a checklist to ensure that you don’t forget anything in cleaning up after you’ve renovated or constructed something. This will further save you from so much stress and work for yourself.

    • Cleaning up after new construction or a remodel is hard work. It is amazing how much dust gets everywhere, and how much trash you end up with. I think the best way to clean up is to just make sure you do as much of the clean up work as you go. Make sure all of the large trash is in the dumpsters and then start at the top and clean on your way down. I would recommend using a swiffer type mop to clean the dust off of the walls.
