Renovating your home can be one of the most stressful event especially if you also live in the house being renovated. Talk about the noise involved [drilling, scraping…etc.], dust particles hovering around the house thanks to movements of furniture and equipment in and out of the house, open windows which let in fresh air at the same time allowing dust in your home. This is the main reason why most people move out and spend a holiday somewhere else to get away from all the discomfort home renovation brings.
When the renovation is done you will be relieved it is over but that would be a beginning of a new job for you since:
-The ceiling and all the walls will be full of dust.
-The kitchen, living room and the bathrooms will all need cleaning.
-Ceiling fans, shelves, external surfaces such as cupboards will also need thorough cleaning and wiping.
-Most corners of your home will be full of dust hence mopping and wiping should be considered.
-Windows, grills and mirrors all over the house will also need some cleaning.
-All floors and tiles all over the house will also need some scrubbing and mopping.
The list could be endless depending on how large your house is or how long it took the constructors to finish the job. This is because the longer they take to complete the project the dirtier your house gets.
Most homeowners expect the contractors to do the cleaning after they are done renovating the house but most of these constructors usually have no experience whatsoever in handling any kind of cleaning jobs. By the time they are done cleaning, be assured that your house will still have some dust particles when they leave. This is the main reason why you should always have a trusted cleaning company at your doorstep to keep your house in order if you are not sure of handling the whole cleaning process on your own.
Hiring professional cleaners however should not be something to be taken lightly, you should always take caution when hiring cleaners this is to avoid hiring unqualified professionals who would not give you the desired results. Before making that call, you should always consider the following:
1. How reputable the company is in terms of their services.
This can be done by getting testimonials from other clients who have had their cleaning done by the cleaning company in question
2. The level of experience in terms of how long have they been in the cleaning industry.
This is because experienced cleaners are more likely to produce satisfied results than new cleaners who have been in the business for less than a year.
3. How qualified they are or if they have any insurance
This is because you would be at peace if you are working with a company which will cater for any loss resulting from cleaning such as injuries or breakage of expensive items around the house [if any of such cases should arise].
4. Their pricing
Cheap is expensive. As much as you want to cut down on cost, cheap services can result in poor work since most of these low priced cleaners are not qualified and may not have the experience and expertise to clean your house properly.
You might be tempted however to clean the house on your own to cut down on costs of hiring professional cleaners, though this is not a bad idea, if your house has been renovated, a helping hand will be handy. This is because a newly renovated house is dirtier and would require more time to clean than usual which means a lot of energy will be used. When the whole cleaning process is over you will be tired and depressed. Living in a dirty house is also not an option, so if you can’t handle the cleaning process get help or hire professionals to get the job done.
Importance Of Post Renovation Cleaning
Whether you choose to clean your own house which solely depends on how large/small your living space is or how long it will take you, cleaning the house has its benefits. However, for large buildings which have been recently renovated it’s wiser if the owners choose to hire professional cleaners. This can save them time and energy which could otherwise be used for other productive endeavors.
Some of the major benefits of post renovation cleaning can include:
– Makes your home feel clean and fresh.
Dust and dirt after renovation can make the house unbearable to live in due to lack of fresh air. Cleaning the house can bring in a whole new feeling of fresh air streaming your house eliminating the chances of allergic reactions which could trigger health hazards like asthma.
– Makes furniture
Upholstery and other places around the house comfortable to sit or use. Sprayed paints, leftover small pieces of wood or metal can make your family reluctant to play or move around hence cleaning can make everyone comfortable to walk in the house freely.
Hiring professionals however can have more advantage than just cleaning all the house by yourself. This is because professional cleaners:
1. Have the experience, expertise and knowledge on things to do with cleaning. Leaving the cleaning to them can give you a peace of mind that right products can be used to right materials or furniture around your home hence minimizing the chances of damages.
2. They save you time and energy which you could invest doing other things.
3. They are fast and reliable. This means you can get your house in order in a short time and make things like functions or parties possible for you and your family or even friends.
4. They have industrial based equipment which means you will get your house cleaned thoroughly giving you desired results.
5. Help you learn new skills.
Learning their skills can help you clean your own house later using their way of professionalism since they mostly have techniques and skills which you never knew about. Home renovation can bring a whole new feeling of being in a new house once again. It doesn’t matter how long you have lived in that same house but a renovated house makes you feel like you are starting your life all over again. Although renovation can bring all sets of costs including the cost of renovating and cleaning but at the end of it all you will realize it was all worth it.
