How to remove construction dust

Dust must first be removed by an industrial vacuum. Sweeping or wiping will simply just move the dust to a new place. With the huge amounts of dust created throughout construction or renovation cleaning, it could take many cleans to get rid of it all if the appropriate steps are not taken first.

Here are some great tips to remove it permanently.

First get yourself prepared, you will need

  • Facemask
  • Vacuum Cleaner with brush head attachments
  • Flat headed mop & bucket
  • Sponges & Cloths

 

  1. Open all windows & doors to create a good airflow through the property.
  2. Start by vacuuming over all floors & carpets
  3. Now with you soft headed vacuum attachment, work your way through the building. In each room start high to low ensuring windows & tracks are also done.
  4. One area most people forget is the air filters in your home. They entice dust, however they’ll additionally add it to the air if they’re not cleaned out initially or replaced.
  5. Not only do Shelves and ledges gather dust, but the walls and other vertical surfaces can hold just as much & are often left unforgotten.
  6. For Walls, moisten a flat headed microfiber mop with water then gently starting at the top bring down in straight motion’s to reduce streaks when dried. Rinse head with every line & change water regularly.
    Warning: If the walls are recently painted, avoid getting them to wet, your mop head should just be barely damp.
  7. Windows – dampen your sponge, again high to low wipe over all glass.
  8. Empty Vacuum regularly & change vacuum filter when required.

You should now be 95% free of construction dust.

Alternatively why not call an expert for your construction cleaning or renovation cleaning needs Gold Coast & Brisbane.

Construction Cleaners Vs House Cleaners
Written on By Swift Admin

 

Having a house constructed or a house renovated will bring about dirt and dust in every square inch of a home, inside and out.

When taking on a builders or renovation clean, many regular house cleaners don’t realise just how much work is involved in getting a home ready for a new tenant.

I say this only because we have taken over or even completely re-done construction cleaning jobs, which regular house cleaning companies attempted first.  It is vital that cleaners are trained in dealing with the dust & debris involved in construction clean ups.

Things we notice are:

  •  The lack of knowledge for removing the huge amount of dust created from renovations or construction work.
  • Regular house cleaning products just don’t cut through the dirt & debris left on floors.
  • Home vacuum cleaners don’t handle or are even made to deal with construction dust.
  • Windows need more than a spray & wipe; they firstly need the dust removing along with any stickers & then professionally washing. (A recent customer was devastated to see the cleaners that he hired, had badly scratched his brand new windows, resulting in instant replacement!).
  • Equipment – Scrubbers & buffers are sometimes the only way to remove ground in dirt from construction sites depending on the floor type.
  • Carpets will need to be professional cleaned if they were laid & not protected.

Do your research when looking for a trained construction cleaner.

What is your opinion on hiring male house cleaners?
Written on By Swift Admin

Gender stereotyping has proved to be invalid for many careers; females are now firefighters, police officers, military, construction workers, etc and males are flight attendants, house cleaners, and nurses. With proper training and experience, all perform equally well regardless of gender.

But would you hire a male house cleaner?

Let us know your views!

Please note pretty boy above is not available!
