The cleaning of the building and the cleaning of the building are unavoidable. After all, the construction of a new office building or a supermarket generates a lot of dirt. An interim construction cleaning usually makes sense when a subcontractor has completed their work. Once walls and ceilings are finished or walls have been plastered, it is time for the cleaning of the building rough or an interim cleaning of the building. Here you can find out how you or your cleaners can best proceed.
In the case of construction cleaning, a distinction is made between construction site cleaning and construction site cleaning. During the cleaning of the building the coarse dirt is removed, the cleaning of the building is quasi the last cleaning to make the building “ready for handover”. If construction is still in full swing, interim construction cleaning may be requested. This is often commissioned when a subcontractor has completed their work, for example when the roofers and bricklayers have completed their work and the shell of the building is finished with walls and ceilings.
When you as a cleaning company receive the order for a construction cleaning – no matter what kind – do your employees know which utensils are best used? Which cleaners should be used for which type of flooring? We have put together a few tips for you on how you and your employees can best proceed and what to look out for.
First tip beforehand: You can leave the broom at home. All you do with him is kick up dust. Previously cleaned shelves and surfaces are dusted again and the next day you have to start all over again. Better to sweep up the coarse dirt is a slightly damp scissor mop.
A professional cleaner has the right utensils at hand, knows which cleaners are suitable for which surfaces and how to make large surfaces “shine” perfectly. But everyone starts once and less experienced employees need a few tips for the right approach, especially in the beginning.
This last step is then also the actual construction cleaning, i.e. the last cleaning before handing over to the new owner or tenant.
Why are pads better than brushes?
Advantage 1: With a cleaning machine equipped with brushes, you usually have to go over the entire floor surface more often. Due to their special composition, the pads absorb the deep-seated dirt in the structured surface of porcelain stoneware better and thus achieve a higher cleaning effect.
Advantage 2: By using the pads you need less aggressive cleaning agents. This saves costs and also makes a contribution to the environment.
MelaminePlusPads are particularly suitable for cleaning all mineral floor coverings – these can be porcelain stoneware tiles, robust natural stone tiles or coverings made of artificial stone. PolyPlusPads are particularly suitable for resilient floor coverings such as linoleum, PVC coverings and rubber.
One mistake inexperienced cleaners often make: they think a lot helps a lot. And: To bring shine to the floor, you need caring cleaning agents. Both are wrong. Especially when it comes to tiles made of porcelain stoneware, care products are taboo. Floors made of wood or laminate require care – here, gloss cleaners or waxes are applied during the initial care to protect them from scratches. Care products are also applied to resilient floor coverings such as linoleum after installation and polished out.
All tiles made of porcelain stoneware or natural stone such as granite do not require maintenance products – in fact, they damage and cause streaks and the floor is difficult to clean. Porcelain stoneware and natural stone retain their original beauty simply by being cleaned properly.
