Construction Site Cleaning FAQs
Whose Responsibility Is It to Clean Up After a Remodeling?
There is no clear-cut answer to this question. Sometimes, the construction company will assume all of the responsibility for the cleanup and sometimes, they will leave it up to you to make arrangements. This should be something you talk about with the construction company before they start work. If the contractors agree that they will be responsible for the post-job cleanup, you should ask to get a copy of their cleanup policy in writing. This will help to avoid any disagreements at the end of the job and will give you the means to get a refund if the job is not completed correctly.
What Questions Should I Ask a Contractor About Post Construction Cleanup?
You should ask if the construction crew will be cleaning the site at the end of each work day or if they will be cleaning all of the accumulated dust and dirt at the end of the job. You should also find out if the crew will be cleaning the site themselves or if they will be subcontracting it to a third party cleaning company. If so, then you should ask for details about this company (name of the company, when they will be arriving, etc.). If they intend to hire a third party company, you should find out if this will be included in the initial cost of the construction or if you will be subject to an additional charge. Asking these questions will help you avoid any nasty surprises when it comes to the cleanup on your construction.
Can I Handle the Cleanup Myself?
On some jobs, it is certainly easy to handle the cleanup yourself. For example, if you have had your garden remodeled and have tree stumps remaining, you would be better off hiring a stump grinder from an equipment rental store than hiring someone to do it. You can ask the people at the store to safely demonstrate how to use it. In other situations, such as cleaning up the interior of your property, the sheer volume of work may be so great that it makes more sense to hire a cleaning company in order to save time.
Are there Any Risks to Performing Cleanup Myself?
There are certain risks when it comes to doing construction remodeling clean up yourself compared to hiring a professional service. You may accidentally cause damage to the home you have just had renovated and in extreme cases, you might be risking the safety of yourself and your family. For example, if you were to use a paper towel to wipe off the dust from newly installed tempered glass, you would risk causing scratches to the glass. Using tools like a stump grinder is a risk to your personal safety for obvious reasons. If you hire a professional company, you will be covered in the event of damage to your newly renovated home.
