After your builders have left the building, the actual work on your home will need to begin. Whether you plan on renovating your home or simply making small changes, it’s the end result that matters since you will need to solve the problem. Dust from construction or renovation seems to be out there no matter how small the task may be. It will be a bit of a hard task for most, but you can make it happen.
The following guidelines will help you get rid of dust and do some serious post-renovation cleaning:
Before the construction job begins you should keep all electrical items wrapped with plastic bags or saran wrap to ensure they are safe. Although you will want you to wait until the builders are out and done with the job and the mess, you should do a quick cleanup at the end of each day. Doing so will ensure cleaning is easier and you won’t have to deal with a really colossal mess at the end of each day. It is up to your own preference, but at the end of the road the daily choice may be better.
One big problem with cleaning dust is that you often tend to brush it around the air and it just lifts and lands somewhere else. If you don’t try to vacuum up the dust you will only be wasting countless hours moving it from place to place while barely doing a thorough cleaning job. When there are bigger pieces to clean, such as plaster or other similar materials can often be cleaned with sweeping, but the finer work will require you to use a vacuum cleaner no matter what. If you do have to sweep, you should open all the windows of your rooms to ensure you will have nothing to worry about and for free airflow.
- Sweeping the rooms
- Cleaning the walls and ceiling
Builders dust can also stick to your walls, so you would need to get rid of it with a damp cloth. You should be careful though, as if your walls were painted this means the damp cloth may simply ruin the paint if you’re not careful.
- Vacuuming the rooms
For carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning you will need to work on vacuum cleaning. If your vacuum has a HEPA filter, then you will have a chance to make serious cleaning a reality. Run the vacuum around your room and make sure you are satisfied with the cleaning job once you’re done.
- Mopping the rooms
Before you even try to mop your floors, you should vacuum first, it may take a few times before you are satisfied. When you do this, you should make sure you also repeat the mopping as many times as you feel you need to. When the job is done you will have cleaning done well and easy without having to waste any time to get to a nice and clean home.
