5 benefits of hiring post renovation cleaners
Once any renovation is done, there needs to be a major cleanup to ensure that the property is ready and liveable.
Some of the cleanup is done by the renovators after they completed the project. For example, heavy debris is carted away, and the floors are swept and mopped.
But this is not enough to get the property clean. The amount of sawdust, plaster, paint and cement residue left behind require more than just sweeping and mopping. Property owners will need to do a thorough cleaning of the house from top to bottom, using industrial-strength cleaning chemicals.
Many property owners will consider doing this clean up themselves, or hire one part-time cleaner to help out. This can be a mistake, as a post-renovation cleaning is not the same as a regular cleaning.
Instead of doing it yourself, consider hiring professionals who specialise in cleaning properties immediately after renovation. These include:
1. Removal of tough stains and debris
After the renovation process has ended, there will be areas with tough stains, paint drips or grout that smudge the tiles. Professional cleaners would know how to get rid of the stains and debris without damaging your newly renovated home.
2. Cleaning supplies and waste disposal
Professional cleaners will provide all the industrial grade cleaning solutions (e.g.: detergent, acid wash) and equipment (e.g.: ladder, mop, scraper, brush) needed for the cleaning process. Once they are done, they will sort out on how to dispose the waste as well.
3. Save your time and energy
Cleaning up after the renovation is no joke. You really need to check and clean every inch of the wall and floor. If the renovation involves installation of plaster ceiling, you might need to check the ceiling as well! With your limited (read: zero) experience in this area, you might need triple the time than the professional cleaners would normally need to clean your house.
4. More than just the floors and walls
Even if your renovation work only involves a single area e.g. the living room, don’t underestimate the amount of dust collected by furniture and fabrics at other areas. Rugs and wall-to-wall carpet will be cleaned with industrial grade vacuum cleaner. All cabinets, furniture, windows, doors and grilles need to be dusted and cleaned as well.
5. Do it for your health
Cement dust, paint fumes and other renovation debris can impact your health. So it’s a no-brainer that you’d want it to be carefully cleaned and sanitised after a long period or construction.
