The Importance of Post-Construction Cleaning

What are the last tasks you need to complete after a construction or renovation project before opening your doors and letting people in?

Unless you hire a post-construction cleaning team, you might miss more than you think. Post-construction cleaning is an overlooked service that can make or break your grand opening.

This blog will discuss the importance of hiring a professional post-construction cleaning staff to ensure your new space is tip-top before the first impressions are made.

Dust Removal

Dust removal is the obvious one.

After any project, no matter what scale - if construction was involved, you can be sure there is dust. Hiring a post-construction cleaner to clean up dust after a project is essential. Not only will it improve the look of your space, but it will keep those using your building safe from respiratory irritation.

You want to work with a thorough cleaning service like J & J Janitor Service for your dust removal needs. If people walk through your brand-spanking-new spot with patches of dust in the corners or on the surfaces of your new place, they won’t be impressed.

Don’t risk making anything less than a stellar impression on those who walk through your space.

Safety Concerns

In any given construction project, there are a lot of moving parts. To complete the project, the contractors had to work very hard, and after they finished, there was no way they could get to all the cleaning.

In our experience, it is not uncommon to find a lot of leftover construction materials, tools, ladders, nails etc., once the project comes to a close.

When your contractors tell you the project is finished, don’t take that as the go-ahead to start inviting people in for the grand opening. Not only do you need a post-construction cleaner to help ensure your place looks great, but you also need one for safety reasons.

Having your cleaners go through your space picking up leftover nails, sharp woodchips, and abandoned screwdrivers is a service you cannot miss out on. Besides, if you haven’t hired a cleaner by the time your project is finished, it will become apparent that you need someone like J & J Janitor Service to help you.

Picking Up the Trash

You don’t want leftover trash plaguing your first impressions either.

Our professional cleaners will scan your entire building for garbage, including all trash cans, floors, and corners. You’ll see for yourself how necessary this service will be.

Full Interior and Exterior Look

Depending on the scope of the project you’ve just endured, your exterior will need to be as thoroughly examined as your interior.

Even if your eye detects nothing out of place on the exterior of your construction site, our professionals can help. Having seen so many projects before means that the company you hire (it should be J & J Janitor Service) will know where to look and what to look for to ensure your property is spic and span.

It’s important to ensure heavy-machinery track marks are accounted for, that the grass looks good, and that there’s not too much dust around. A full interior and exterior sweep are critical to making excellent impressions all around.


Like almost anything else, double-checking is a huge advantage. It’s important to double-check your post-construction sight just to make sure everything is up to snuff. Hiring a good team like us means finding someone who has your best interest in mind. We are on your side, and as business owners, we understand the importance of making an excellent first impression.

Don’t miss the opportunity to have the best soft or grand opening possible.

Everyone Wants to Move In Right Away

People want to move into their new spaces right away. Admittedly it is a very exciting time. It is important, however, not to allow the excitement of inhabiting the new space to be the cause of oversight.

A good company like ours will help you make sure that you can move in safely as soon as possible.

Professional Assessment

Having professionally experienced cleaners assess your post-construction site is an obvious thing to do once you think about it. Any decent construction company worth their weight in salt will be busy enough to necessitate their departure as soon as they finish.

Consider us the janitors of your construction site. With our keen eye and our knowledge of what to look out for in a post-construction situation, you can bet that by the time we’ve finished, your site will be ready for anything.

Stress-Free Service That Makes a Big Difference

Another not-so-obvious yet very relevant advantage of hiring a post-construction cleaner is that it’s hassle-free. Once we show up, you won’t need to stress because the project is complete, and our workers will put the finishing touches in place quickly.

At most, the cleaners will require a little walk-through of the property to get their footing, but otherwise, they know just what to do. Just hand the reigns over to J & J Janitor Service, and we will make sure every last spot of your entire site is spotless, and we’ll cover our track on our way out.

A pristine grand opening is what our service enables.

In Conclusion:

There is no downside to hiring our team for post-construction cleaning. Compared to the rest of the project, our service is inexpensive and more than worth the money.

Chances are, after dealing with all the contractors, the last thing you want to do is clean - especially when you see how intensive the task is. Yet making sure the place is spotless is still of the highest importance—it needs to be done.

We know all the tricks of the trade and how to get your property looking its very best. We need to be introduced to your project to understand the scale of the work being done and the extent of the preparation we need to do to serve you best – so we recommend calling us well in advance for the best results so your opening can move like clockwork.
