When you have undergone a residential construction job, things are likely going to look a bit cluttered and all over the place. While most of the main groundwork will be completed and your dream homes’ foundation will be built, a lot of scrap materials and shavings get left on the ground afterward. 

If your basement was worked on in specific & you need the best advice to help clean this area after a construction job, we here at Now It’s Clean are here to help with our detailed post construction cleaning tips and tricks below. 

Collect All The Necessary Cleaning Equipment 

In order to be sure that this cleaning goes off without a hitch, you must make sure that you have all the necessary supplies to clean the area properly. Our team will always recommend that you have the following items at your disposal: 

  • Mops 
  • Brooms & dustpans 
  • Garbage bags 
  • Cleaning products 
  • A vacuum cleaner 
  • Cleaning cloths 
  • A ladder 

It is very important that you make sure to use only the best quality, non-toxic cleaning products for this kind of cleaning. This not only guarantees your newly renovated space is safe and pristine, but also ensures the space stays as clean as possible for as long as possible. 

Dress in The Right Clothes 

Another really important thing to do before getting into the nit and grit of your basement cleaning is to wear the appropriate clothing. Since this is going to be a post-construction cleaning, it’s important that you wear something that you don’t mind getting dirty. This will usually involve something like a painting shirt (if you have one) or a large, cheap t-shirt. Make sure you wear something cozy for your pants as well. Usually a pair of sweatpants that you don’t mind getting dirty works perfectly. Our team also recommends using gloves and a mask in order to protect your skin and avoid any inhalation of dust, wood or other airborne particles from the construction job. 

Remove Large Pieces of Garbage 

The best first step before getting into the thick of a basement cleaning is to get rid of any larger pieces of garbage. This will often include construction scrap such as planks of wood, sheets of metal, etc. In order for a cleaning job to be done properly (and safely), it’s vital that these large obstructions are out of the way & disposed of properly. 

Clean From Top to Bottom 

When it comes to ensuring your basement gets the best clean, it’s vital you start at the top of the room and work your way down. This means starting with cleaning the ceiling of any cobwebs and dust and working your way down to the walls and then to the floor. Use a damp cloth to wipe your walls, as you don’t want to mess with the paint, and then declutter/mop/sweep the floors to make sure everything is spotless.
