What Is A Post Renovation Cleaning ?

A post-construction cleaning checklist is a detailed document that breaks down the different areas of a worksite into specific categories for cleaning. It helps workers walk through each space and identify any cleanup tasks that need to be done before the project can be considered complete.

When a construction project is complete, the final step is a thorough inspection of the job site to ensure everything is clean, organized, safe, and put away. This final walkthrough usually involves a construction punch list and ensures that all loose ends are tied up, damages are addressed, and the property is up to standard. One way to ensure all of these are done is by creating and utilizing a custom post-construction cleaning checklist.
