Post Construction Cleaning Checklist

Post Construction Cleaning Checklist in Seattle


Post Construction Cleaning Checklist in Seattle. Congratulations! You just completed your construction project. Now what? Post construction cleaning is critical to ensure the home/building is safe, clean and ready for tenants.

It can be overwhelming to know everything that needs to be done, so here at Queen Bee Cleaning Services, we put together a checklist for all your post construction cleaning needs.

Vacuum Carpets in Seattle

To ensure the carpets look their best, they need to be vacuumed thoroughly. This will help remove debris and allergens that collected during construction.

Wipe Down Countertops

It is common for dust and dirt to collect on countertops during construction. Be sure to wipe down kitchen, bath and utility room countertops during post construction cleaning.

Sweep/Vacuum and Mop Hardwood and Tile Floors

Just as carpet collects debris, dirt and allergens, so does floors. Make sure to sweep or vacuum floors before-hand to get up looser particles, and then mop thoroughly.

Clean Windows, Glass Doors and Mirrors

It’s easy for windows, mirrors and glass doors to pick up fingerprints and smudges during installation. Be sure to spray them with a glass cleaner and wipe with a paper towel. Avoid using a rag, as it may leave behind fibers on the glass.

Dust Ceiling Fans and Ceilings

Dust can accumulate on ceiling fan blades as well as the ceiling. Be sure to dust and pay special attention to the fan blades, as they have the most dust build up.


Clean Windowsills

As dust gathers on countertops, it also tends to collect on windowsills. Be sure to clean all these spots to remove the debris build up.

Clean Exterior Lights

Not only can lights have fingerprints from being installed, but they also can gather dirt from being out in the elements. Dust off, and use window cleaner for any glass parts during post construction clean up.

Clean Toilets

Perhaps one of the most important places to remember to clean is the toilets. Clean toilets not only look better but are also more hygienic for the new tenants use.

Remove Cobwebs

Depending how long construction takes, it is not uncommon for cobwebs to develop in corners (both floor and ceiling), and porches. Be sure to check anywhere they may accumulate and remove them with a vacuum.

Collect and Remove All Trash

Do a thorough walk-thru of the building and the yard to collect and dispose all trash. Often times, construction can lead to trash being left in closets, on countertops, out on the lawn, etc.
