Why You Should Arrange an After Builders Clean

Are you looking to extend your home rather than move to a new one? Does the potential mess and chaos left behind by the builders put you off? If so, you may want to consider booking an after builders cleaning service once your extension has been completed.

A builders’ clean isn’t just for builders. Regardless of how big or small the project, or whether you have the most careful and tidiest of tradespeople, there will always be dirt and dust that gets into even the most unlikely of places and you may not have the time, or the tools, for the job. Read on to find out more about why you should book an after builders clean, and what they consist of.

Why Should You Book an After Builders’ Clean?

Any form of building is a messy job especially if trades such as plasterers and painters haven’t kept their areas clean, which often is the case. And there’s no point cleaning until all the work is completed as you’ll just need to keep going over the same area again and again. Even though your extension may be complete, it still doesn’t feel quite like home yet, a thorough clean to have it on par with the rest of your home will allow it to blend with ease. It’s all about the finishing touches!

It’s also worth considering leaving it a couple of days after the last job has been done, so all the dust can completely settle, and then the cleaners can get into every nook and cranny.

How To Prepare For a House Clean After Builders

There is not much you can do, or even need to do in order to fully prepare for an after builders clean. All you can do is make sure the site is clear of any rubbish or building debris and all the tradespeople have finished their work so the cleaners can get on with theirs.

What Does an After Builders Clean Consist of?

A builders clean is a thorough clean of the whole area from top to bottom (no really, top to bottom).

External gutters, paintwork, paving, soffits and fascias of new build properties will also be washed down and balconies and pathways swept.

High-level fittings
All high-level fittings will be wiped over including light fittings and extractor fans.

Windows and any other glazing will be washed via the traditional window cleaning method where accessible and wiped clean to a smear-free shine with a microfibre cloth.

Shelves, cupboards and cabinets
All cupboards and cabinets, including the kitchen and bathroom, will be cleaned inside and out.

Sanitary ware
Bathroom fittings will be cleaned including mirrors.

All flooring, including the tiles in wet areas, will be vacuumed and mopped. Dirty floors will be scrubbed, cleaned and polished with a scrubber dryer buffer machine and, if especially dirty or stained, carpets will be treated and washed.
