is actually involved in Construction and Remodel Cleaning?
be a very messy process. It is not an exact science. There are numerous
sub contractors that come into the
home being built and pay no attention to what others are doing in the
home. An individual may come in and saw wood inside the
home and create a tremendous amount of dust in the home and not think
twice about what they are doing.
problem even gets worse when the home is being remodeled. Mountain
Maids / Colorado Springs House Cleaning often gets
calls from homeowners who have for example just had their wood floors
refinished and now there is DUST on every single
surface in the home. We are up to the challenge and will come in and
take care of things, but it can be very time consuming. Our
pricing is based on the time we expect to take to complete the project,
so a home say about 3000 sw ft that has dust all over the
place due to a remodel or wood floor refinish could take 3 of our
employees anywhere from 6 to 8 hours and run about $400 to
$800 to complete
you can minimize your costs for Construction / Remodel Cleaning.
The first thing
to do is you have any control over the sub-contractors is let them know
that you EXPECT them to clean up after
themselves. If you are having your floors refinished ask your
contractor to tape off the areas that are not being sanded with
plastic. This will not totally eliminate the dust but it will help cut
doen the dust into areas that are not being refinished. Ask your
contractor if their pricing includes any kind of cleaning. You should
budget into the price quoted to you some cost for cleaning ..
either that you will have to do yourself or that you will have to hire
somebody else to do for you.
For new construction you should
expect that the
home is going to have to be cleaned before you move into it, so budget
for this and you will not be upset about having to spend the money to
do this. Your builder may have already included in the budget an amount
for post construction cleaning. If not expect to have to do this
yourself or hire somebody to do it for you. Tract homes are usually
given a basic once over by the builders cleaning crew but usually this
is not perfect, so if you are picky expect to be doing some additional
cleaning yourself. Custom home builders will often include in their
budget the cost of post construction cleaning. This usually involves a
final interior cleaning of the home before you move in. A typical 2500
to 3000 sq ft home may run anywher from $700 to $1200 to get cleaned
properly. If the budget is only $200 to $300 then don't be surprised if
the cleaning does not meet your standards .. the cleaning crew more
than likely just did not have sufficient to spend in your home to do
the detail that would be neccesary.
What do you
typically do in a new construction cleaning?
construction cleaning crew's goal is to get the home ready for you to
move in. Typically we would clean the entire
interior of the home, wipe down all surfaces, clean inside and outside
of all cabinets and drawers, wipe down all horizontal and
vertical surfaces such as shelves, etc. clean all glass inside and out
including scraping stickers and paint off windows inside and
out, removing stickers and construction debris such as drywall mud off
fixtures such as bathroom fixtures, tubs, etc., cleaning all
ahrd floors, vacuuming al carpeted areas, etc. etc. Usually the post
construction cleaning crew would come and detail the home
AFTER all the construction workers have left and just before you are
moving in. Often we may have to work areound a painter or
other contractor who is performing some last minute touch up of their
job, and we are used to this. Some builders prefer to have
their own crew clean windows inside and out and that is fine with us
since this is one of the most time consuming part of the
construction cleaning process for us. Cleaning the windows yourself can
cut down on the cost substantially depending on the
number of windows in the home.
