One of the most important reasons for performing a rough clean is that it sets an initial tone and standard to maintain throughout your entire cleaning process. Your team will get a good outlook on the entire construction site and see how much work will be needed for the next detailed cleaning and of course the long awaited final cleaning.

Rou Claning Helps Prepare for the light and final cleaning


Intitial cleaning helps to prepare surfaces for a more thorough cleaning. This is especially important when dealing with dirty or grimy surfaces including floors, counters, windows and appliances. By doing a rough cleaning first, you can remove the majority of the dirt and grime, making it easier to clean the surface more thoroughly later on.

Construction Cleaning Improves Air Quality


Performing a rough cleaning helps to improve indoor air quality by removing allergens and other airborne contaminants. A recent  study, conducted by the University of Texas at Austin, found that a rough cleaning, which includes using a HEPA filter vacuum, mopping, and steam cleaning carpets, can remove up to 99 percent of airborne contaminants.

Construction Post Cleaning Helps Identify Smaller Issues


Rough clean-ups help  identify issues that may not be visible with large debris laying around, covering walls and floors. This type of cleaning can also help you spot potential safety hazards, such as loose floorboards or electrical cords that are not properly insulated. You will probably find tools & new materials that were lost or hidden.
