If you've recently completed a construction or renovation project, congratulations! It's an exciting time to see your vision come to life. However, it's important to remember that the work doesn't end when the construction crews leave. Post-construction cleaning is a vital part of the process that often gets overlooked.

A thorough cleaning is necessary to ensure that your new space is clean, safe, and ready for occupancy. At ServiceMaster, we understand the importance of post-construction cleaning, and we're here to help. In this blog post, we'll provide you with a comprehensive checklist for a detailed cleanup.


1. Dusting: Dust is a common byproduct of construction work, and it can settle on all surfaces in your home. Start by dusting the ceiling, walls, and baseboards with a microfiber cloth or a vacuum with a soft brush attachment. Don't forget to dust light fixtures, fans, and blinds.

2. Floor Cleaning: Construction work can leave your floors covered in dust, debris, and other materials. For hardwood or tile floors, use a broom to sweep up the debris, followed by a damp mop. For carpets, start by vacuuming the area thoroughly, then use a carpet cleaner to remove any stains or dirt.

3. Window Cleaning: After construction, windows can be covered in dust and debris. Use a glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to clean the inside and outside of your windows.

4. Kitchen and Bathroom Cleaning: These areas require extra attention after construction. Clean all surfaces, including countertops, cabinets, and appliances, with a disinfectant cleaner. Don't forget to clean the sinks, toilets, and showers too.

5. Air Duct Cleaning: Construction work can cause dust, debris, and other contaminants to build up in your air ducts. Having your air ducts professionally cleaned can improve the air quality in your home and reduce allergy symptoms.

6. Final Inspection: Once you've completed the cleaning process, it's important to do a final inspection of your home. Check all areas to make sure that everything is clean and in working order. This is the perfect time to create a punch list of items that need to be addressed before the project is considered complete.
