How to Properly Clean Up Your Home and Property After a Major Renovation – North Denver News

After the major renovation, it’s time to party – but not quite if there is still some clean-up work to be done! It’s a sad fact, but it’s a fact nonetheless – many contractors don’t offer a cleanup service after they finish their job, and you may have several months of dust and grime battling your premises. So now if you are thinking of how to tidy up your home after a major renovation, this is the place for you.

  1. Dealing with the removal and disposal of construction waste

One of the first tasks you will have to tackle is removing and disposing of construction rubble. And the junk that comes with a renovation or remodeling job can be huge – from blocks and wood to concrete, countertops, hardware, tools, and more trash than you can imagine.

Some property owners choose to rent a dumpster, but renting them can have its own difficulties. Not only is it expensive but also tricky, and it takes a lot of work and effort to do it yourself, even with the help of your family. Many states and cities may also require permits just so you can put a dumpster in front of your home, and this may not always be the most accessible place.

But there is another solution which is to hire a garbage removal company. For example, Roswell companies like Evergreen can remove, haul away, and dispose of your construction rubble, and they can clean up your property in the quickest, easiest (and most hassle-free) way possible. When you’ve got rid of all of the construction rubble, you can clean up the dust – and that’s sure to be a lot.

  1. Remove construction dust

The dust created during construction work is very fine and gets into areas you least expect. Whether you are dealing with dust caused by wood, tile, brick, concrete, or drywall, your project will have produced a lot of it and it will easily settle in every inch and corner. It’s also dangerous and can cause breathing problems, so it’s important to clean it as thoroughly as possible.

First of all, you will need special tools and equipment: towels, face masks, dryer sheets, mops, floor cleaners, vacuum cleaners (with additional vacuum filters) and dust mops.

To do a standard cleaning:

You can start with the walls, but do it carefully. It is important to first wipe them with a damp cloth and then wrap a soft cloth on the bottom of a broom and tape it in place. Then you can slide this along the walls of your home so you can catch and remove the dust.

The next step is to dust your ceiling with the soft brush attachment and hose on your vacuum cleaner to remove the ceiling dust. Alternatively, you can use your broom covered with a towel. You can then wipe the baseboards and siding, window frames, and doors with another soft cloth or towel. Next, sweep the tiles and hardwood surfaces with a regular broom. You can then mop it up and vacuum your carpets.

Then wipe your windows with a glass cleaner and a soft cloth, and clean your lightbulbs and fittings with a damp, soft cloth or towel.
