During construction cleaning porcelain stoneware tiles are usually easy to clean. Doch befindet sich der Boden noch mitten im halb fertiggestellten Gebäude, gilt es einiges zu beachten. In our short blog series, you can find out how best to get rid of the dirt on tiles during construction cleaning.
Anyone who has been on a building site before can see the differences. Between those where there is relative order even during the work and those where there is something lying around in every corner. In principle, it is the contractor’s responsibility to ensure order during the construction period. The challenge also lies in the fact that different trades go about their business. It is helpful, for example, to provide waste bins and waste containers for different types of waste. Here, employees can dispose of the waste after their work is done.
In the case of longer construction times, an intermediate construction cleaning is usually carried out. In addition, a distinction is made between rough building cleaning and fine building cleaning . The latter is also known as final cleaning – it is used to make the building object ready for occupancy so that the keys can now be handed over. The cleaning of all surfaces is part of the final cleaning of the building. This also includes windows, ceilings, railings, radiators, fitted kitchens and so on.
Many cleaning companies already use haid-tec products for cleaning during construction and for intermediate cleaning . In addition to removing loose dirt – for example sawdust – it is important to clean certain areas. These are above all areas that get dirty quickly, such as the construction site access. Interim cleaning is also useful when the tiler has finished his job.
The haid-tec expertise comes into play when it comes to cleaning the tiles that have been laid over a large area. Here we focus on porcelain stoneware, partly because this covering is used the most. Porcelain stoneware tiles are laid in supermarkets, airports, office buildings and many public facilities. It is generally an easy-to-maintain floor covering if you keep a few things in mind.
With a small blog series on the subject of “construction cleaning”, we at haid-tec want to give an insight into how best to proceed when cleaning construction sites and then devote ourselves to a few things that deserve the special attention of the cleaning staff. This includes tips for general construction cleaning and construction cleaning, the removal of cement residue, rust stains and Glue residue.n.
Basically, as a cleaner, you have to know which tools are best for removing dirt, which cleaning agents to use and which stains deserve special attention. This also means knowing which special cleaners to use so as not to attack the surface. One example that causes headaches for many cleaners is the removal of cement residue: leftover material from grouting covers the tiles like a grey veil. This must be removed professionally. If the cement haze is not completely removed, the surface of the floor will be extremely susceptible to dirt or will not be properly cleaned during normal maintenance cleaning.
Basically, more different types of soiling can be removed with alkaline cleaners than with acid cleaners. Therefore, the porcelain stoneware cleaner is in most cases the agent of choice when it comes to maintenance cleaning, or it is used when, after the cement residue has been removed, the floor needs to be freed from non-mineral dirt and the building needs to be made ready for occupancy.
