Perfectly Clean Post Construction Cleaning Services in Melbourne

The Challenges of Post-Construction Cleaning

Post-construction cleaning is a time and labour-intensive process that requires specialised skills and equipment. Construction projects, whether commercial buildings or residential homes, generate an immense amount of debris and dust. From drywall dust to paint spills and more, the mess left behind after the construction crews leave can be daunting. 

General cleaning crews are not equipped to handle the unique demands of construction cleanup. Attempting to clean up a construction site with standard equipment could take weeks and still leave behind hazards for occupants. Construction dust and debris may seem harmless, but particles left behind can cause respiratory issues if not thoroughly removed.

The scale of most construction projects makes post-construction cleaning difficult. A crew without proper equipment and techniques will struggle to keep up. And if the cleaning process drags on too long, it can delay the occupancy permit and opening of the building. Fast yet thorough cleaning is essential.

The Costs of Delays

Delays after construction can lead to significant financial losses for a business. Every day a facility remains unfinished results in lost potential revenue and productivity. Construction projects represent major investments, so any delays in opening or utilising the space comes at a high cost.  

According to industry research, an average construction delay lasts around 7 weeks and costs the project owner over $1.3 million in lost revenue and expenses. For large facilities like hospitals, sports stadiums, or manufacturing plants, these losses can be exponentially higher. Even relatively short delays of a few weeks can mean millions in lost revenue.

Delays also increase costs in other ways. If a delay causes a missed market opportunity or deadline, the losses may be impossible to recoup. There are also added costs for extended rental of equipment, storage fees, double labour, and more. Developers and project owners should account for these risks when assessing the importance of fast, reliable post-construction cleaning.

 Specialised Equipment

Post-construction cleaning requires specialised equipment to thoroughly clean a space and remove any remaining debris or dust. Two key pieces of equipment that professional post-construction cleaning services utilise are HEPA vacuums and negative air machines.

HEPA Vacuums

HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) vacuums are essential for post-construction cleaning. They contain advanced filters that can remove particles as small as 0.3 micrometres, filtering out 99.97% of dust, pollen, mould, bacteria, and other allergens. This allows the vacuums to thoroughly clean surfaces, vents, ducts, and other areas. HEPA vacuums prevent fine particles from circulating back into the air, resulting in a cleaner space.

Negative Air Machines 

Negative air machines help improve indoor air quality by filtering and circulating air during the cleaning process. They pull air in, filter it through a HEPA filter to capture particles, and then discharge cleaner air back into the space. This constant filtration ensures the air quality remains clean during cleaning. Negative air machines remove any lingering construction dust that normal vacuuming may leave behind.

Professional post-construction cleaning crews will utilise these powerful vacuums and air scrubbers to deep clean the space and remove potential health hazards. Their specialised equipment ensures a higher standard of cleanliness.

Attention to Safety 

Safety should always be the top priority during any construction clean-up project. Our crews are fully trained on OSHA guidelines and follow them diligently. We ensure that all crew members wear the proper protective equipment at all times when operating machinery, handling hazardous materials, or working at heights. Strict protocols are in place for tool operation, material handling, and site security. 

We control access to eliminate risks from unauthorised personnel. Daily safety meetings reinforce best practices and accountability. With our excellent safety record, you can rest assured that our teams work safely to get the job done right. We partner with site managers to coordinate safety efforts and identify potential hazards early. 

By making safety the foundation of our work, we avoid injuries, damage, and delays. Our commitment to safety gives you reliable results you can trust.

Thorough Cleaning

Post-construction cleaning requires meticulous attention to detail on all surfaces. Our experienced crews use specialised techniques and tools to thoroughly clean:

Experience and Training

A post-construction cleaning crew needs proper training and experience to deliver efficient, high-quality results. Unlike regular janitorial services, post-construction cleaning requires specialised techniques and methods to address the unique needs of newly built or renovated spaces. 

An experienced post-construction cleaning company will have crews that are highly trained in using the right tools and processes for construction dust and debris removal. They understand the most effective methods for cleaning newly installed floors, windows, and surfaces without causing any damage. Proper techniques include using HEPA-filter vacuums, microfiber cloths, and other specialised equipment.

Choosing a post-construction cleaning company with extensive experience also provides assurance that the job will be done right. Look for a well-established company that can demonstrate years of serving commercial construction firms.

 Efficiency and Time Savings

An experienced post-construction cleaning company will have refined and organised processes to ensure efficiency and minimise delays. Rather than scrambling to clean up a site, they will have a detailed project management plan to systematically tackle all areas. 

With a clear schedule and assignment of duties, crews can work in parallel across different zones to rapidly complete cleaning. Project managers closely track progress and re-allocate resources as needed to avoid bottlenecks. The whole process is optimised based on extensive experience across hundreds of sites.

Post-construction cleaning specialists understand how to maximise productivity with the right equipment and techniques. They don't waste time figuring out ad-hoc solutions. With tried and tested methods, they can clean faster while still meeting quality standards. Their efficiency enables faster handoff and use of the site.

Rather than DIY cleaning that takes your own staff away from core operations, outsourced post-construction cleaning maintains focus on your business priorities. The cleaning experts handle the work, while your team avoids unexpected delays from dealing with final cleanup tasks. This gets your facility open and operational sooner.

 Continuous Communication

Clear and frequent communication with construction crews and clients is critical to ensure efficient post-construction cleaning services. Our team maintains open channels of communication at all times to coordinate schedules, provide progress updates, and address any needs or issues that arise.

Our supervisors are available by phone whenever crews are on-site. 

For clients, we provide daily email updates and photos documenting our cleaning progress. Clients can contact us any time with questions or requests, and we respond promptly.

 Partnering With Experts

Hiring professional post-construction cleaners offers several key benefits compared to handling the work in-house. Partnering with experts in this service area can reduce delays, minimise costs, and deliver the best results.

Save Time and Increase Efficiency

Professional post-construction cleaning crews have specialised equipment, training, and experience that enables them to clean faster and more efficiently than non-specialized staff. They can thoroughly clean large areas far quicker, reducing downtime after construction. Their expertise also results in higher quality cleaning the first time, avoiding extra work.

Reduce Health and Safety Risks 

Construction sites contain many hazards, like dust, debris, chemicals, and equipment. Professional cleaners are extensively trained in safe practices and have the proper protective gear and protocols in place to mitigate risks. Avoiding safety incidents from inexperienced staff streamlines the process.

Control Costs

While hiring outside cleaners requires an investment, it often costs less than training in-house staff and can prevent expensive delays. Professionals have optimised procedures to maximise productivity and cost-effectiveness. Their work also minimises the need for recleaning or fixing issues down the road.

Enjoy Peace of Mind

Reputable professional cleaners offer guarantees for their work and will ensure customers' satisfaction. Their experience and systematic approach provide confidence that the job will be done properly the first time, avoiding unforeseen problems. Facility managers can focus on other priorities knowing the experts are handling the cleaning.

Partnering with our Perfectly Clean trusted post-construction cleaning company is the best way to ensure an efficient, safe, and worry-free process after building projects.
