Do’s and Don’ts for Your Post-Construction Cleanup

Get your site cleaned up right with these tips.


Our teams have extensive post-construction cleanup experience.Whether you’re a construction organization finishing up a new build or a company wrapping up a renovation, construction projects can be incredibly exciting! But they can also leave behind tons of dust and debris that don’t exactly make the space “move-in ready.”


Thankfully, the Kleen Team is here to help with decades of construction cleanup experience! Whether this is your first construction cleanup project or your 100th, here are some important do’s and don’ts for post-construction cleanup that can help make the process go smoothly:


DO: Work with a professional cleaning company 


After spending a lot of time on a costly construction project, you may be tempted to try and save money by using a less expensive or newer cleaning company. If you cut corners and work with a less reputable business, you could end up paying for it down the road. A less experienced cleaning crew may not be able to work as efficiently and can make costly mistakes such as improper disposal of materials.


At KleenMark, our crews are ready to handle cleanup projects of all sizes. With a team of more than 800 cleaners throughout the Midwest, we’re here to make quick work of the toughest jobs!


DON’T: Rely on inexperienced help 


There are a lot of commercial cleaning services out there, but not all of them have the essential knowledge to successfully complete a post-construction cleanup while keeping everyone on site safe and healthy. KleenMark has been handling construction cleanups for years, so our teams are well-trained, knowledgable, and ready to take on any size project.


DO: Ensure there is a designated project manager 


A competent and professional project manager will know exactly how to sequence the cleanup and which areas need to take priority. For instance, a project manager well versed in the post-construction cleanup process won’t have sinks cleaned until inspectors come through and run the water. Without a project manager and properly trained, professional cleaners, construction cleanup can quickly become a headache, knocking the final steps of your project off-track and costing you money.


DON’T: Overlook the importance of a detailed safety training program


As you research and interview cleaning companies, be sure to inquire about the safety training that their employees undergo as part of their hiring process. You want to be confident that everyone on the crew is safety conscious and takes the job seriously.


DO: Tell your cleaning vendor about any deadlines


Open and clear communication is a building block of any professional relationship, so informing your cleaning vendor about any pertinent deadlines (inspections, final walk-throughs, etc.) that will impact how and when the cleanup crew can work is vital to the project.


At KleenMark, we know that just because the construction is done doesn’t mean that the job is complete! We have a variety of construction cleanup options to best suit your business’ needs.
