Right from the beginning of a project, when it is commissioned to the developer and architects, until the very end, work is ongoing. You may be forgiven for thinking that a huge chunk of work is over when construction has been completed and the gleaming façade is revealed to all. In reality, a lot of work needs to be done to clean up the area post-construction and make it fit for occupancy.

Some of the initial jobs that cleaning companies offer as part of their post-construction cleanup package include the removal of all trash and debris around the exterior area; thorough cleaning of toilets, appliances, tubs, cabinets, closets and countertops; and dusting and scraping off of grease/grime from all surfaces, vacuuming carpeted areas, wet mopping hard surface floors, cleaning walls, etc.

Once the majority of visible mess and clutter has been cleared, it is time to focus on intricate detailing. Vigorous cleaning and polishing is required especially on surfaces such as glass, wood and stainless steel. In pre-furnished residential complexes, it is important to safely install all electrical home appliances.

It is imperative to pay attention to removing dust and grime from small ducts and vents. Stain removal also forms a big part of the process. After the site has been thoroughly cleaned, it is important to sanitize the environment completely.

Some of the UAE companies that offer these services are Cleantech, Maids UAE and Aqua Cleaning. The services provided use the latest technology to ensure cleaning is up to the mark. They also offer a proactive follow-up program wherein they demonstrate how the facility can be maintained to keep it looking as good as new.

Handy Hints:

• Initial cleaning includes dusting, trash removal, etc.

• Cleaning and polishing of glass, steel come next.

• Sanitizing the area is the final step of the process.
