What is an After Builders clean?

Definition of a Builders Clean

A builders clean is a specialised type of cleaning service carried out by a trained professional after a new construction, demolition or renovation project is completed. Many people mistakenly believe that builders take care of this task. In fact builders don’t have the right equipment or knowledge to undertake this part of the process. There are many reasons for this.

Firstly, we need to understand that cleaning up debris, dust and other types of construction residues require special equipment and products. Builders are already busy dealing with their own equipment and that’s why you need a dedicated crew to take care of the cleaning.

Moreover, builders are always running on a tight schedule. Not to mention of course cleaning should not be their area of expertise. Whereas a dedicated builders clean team is trained specifically to attend to every little detail.

Finally a specialised team understands the presentation standards required to really showcase the final product and leave the property “ready to use”.

Difference between a Builders Clean and a Standard Domestic Clean

Top 3 differences between a Builders Clean and Domestic cleaning

A common misconception is that builders cleaning and domestic cleaning services are the same. This is actually not true. As mentioned previously, cleaning after constructions, demolitions and renovations generally requires special knowledge, equipment and procedures.

Some cleaning companies offer domestic cleaning services in place of appropriate builders cleans. This can not only result in a less than satisfactory outcome, but also can cause permanent damage to your property.

At Swift Home Services we have seen it all. Below we have summarised the 3 main differences between domestic and specialised builders cleans.

Scope of Works

There are many more steps to performing a successful builders clean compared to a standard clean. For example the ‘Hazard & Risk Assessment’ stage. For detailed information on what is comprised in a builders clean please read the next section.

Cleaning Equipment & Products

Critical Steps to a successful Builders Clean

There are several steps to carrying out a successful and cost effective builders clean. These steps or stages all serve a specific purpose and are just as important as one another. Please see below the core 4 steps comprised in a professional builders clean.

Hazard & Risk Assessment

The first stages of an after builders clean is to inspect the property to see what cleaning needs to be done. This is when we decide what type of builders clean you need , whether it is an after renovation clean , after demolition clean or newly built home or facility. We will work out what needs to be done, all the risk factors and possible hazardous components.

Initial High Level Clean

An initial Clean is the first stage of the builders clean which involves the removal of dust and debris from surfaces and rubbish from the building. In some cases, the builders might take care of this first stage of cleaning. In most cases standard cleaning equipment is not sufficient to handle this type of waste. Also, due to the nature of some construction materials being handled, special personal protective equipment is required to complete the job.

Detail Clean

This is the part of the clean that really sets apart the builders clean and the regular house clean. It involves the removal of any paint marks , dust and splatters on windows. What ever needs to be cleaned deeply, this is when they will do it. This thorough builders clean step is taken with the upmost of care, making sure that the property is left with a showroom quality finish.

Final Inspection & Presentation

The final stage of the builders clean is to inspect the property for any accidental dust components left behind. This is a very thorough check as each property needs to be left immaculate with no sign of any dirt or dust. Swift Home Services always do a complete check at the end of any project to insure the property has been left up to high standards.
