I don’t worry too much about a spotless clean during the remodel.
I make sure all the HO’s personal stuff is moved out of the construction area, and then I Zipwall or tape off the entrances. I’ll sweep and do a quick vacuum at the end of the day, or as needed in the middle of the day.
I’m a big fan of hiring a cleaning service to come in when I’m done. I’d rather build than play maid. Sub that stuff out.
good call amc, im often stuck vaccumming the finished floors off on our really big projects at the end.. the subs dont clean up after themselves and im typically the last guy from the crew on site where i handle 95% of the intereior finish details which arent cabinet or stair relataed
An air scrubber like the Buildclean would help a lot with the airborne dust. Something I used to do was include a “free” house cleaning service. A friend of mine had a cleaning service; she gave me a little break in the price because it got her foot in the door with new customers and I would include the cost in my estimate. I keep the site as clean as possible but then she would come in and polish everything up.
Obviously, not every job had the budget to bury an extra $300 to $400 but many did.
When we had our reno business going strong, I had a cleaning lady / person who used to clean my condo, just because I hate doing it, and was never home to do it
I gave her the extra business just like you mentioned Chad, she appreciated the extra income, and my clients thought that was excellent, it’s amazing what word of mouth can do,
Clients definitely appreciate the cleaning part
Great tip, and it’s not going to break the bank either.
