Time to clean up!

Now that you know what you need, it’s time to get the cleaning process started! The first step is to open up every window so that the air flows and the dust and smell of construction and paint are ventilated a little. We insist you use your mask so you won’t inhale all the toxic particles that are flying in the air.

Now is when you start getting serious about your post construction clean up. We strongly recommend you take care of every door and window frame of your home, you may use a duster to do it easily. Pay attention to every crack and crevice because that is where most of the post-construction dirt is. Don’t forget about blinds!

Vacuum it all

Vacuum every corner of your house, from the carpets to non-carpet surfaces. Use an extension tool for hard areas that are difficult to reach with a standard vacuum cleaner.
Broom & mop brooms can help you get rid of grime on floors or furniture without having concern about leaving behind dirt marks throughout!
