What is a Builders Clean?
There are many different classifications of clean, domestic clean, builders clean, sparkle clean, end of tenancy clean, the list is endless. There are however clear differences between these cleans and a huge difference between the first three cleans. Builders generally leave mess behind, it is the nature of the beast, but they also leave behind the various trades lesser publicised issues such as plaster on metalwork, paint on window glass, generally any situation where a tradesman hasn’t utilised his protection system adequately.
Mostly all trades and builders clean up as they progress through a job, for example - you cannot paint skirting boards with dust on the floor, you cannot paint walls or woodwork with plaster splashed on them, you get the idea, practically all sites have dust in them for the duration of the build/renovation, with workmen having a sweep up clean daily.
It is only when a site is truly empty of tradesmen & bare of building materials that the builders clean can take place, this is to make the property presentable for the developer, it may well still have various trades doing the last essential snagging work at the developer’s request but will be very close to completion.
Floors will take the brunt of all the trades during the building and decorating process even though they will have been temporarily covered in most cases and in some instances could still need a deep builders clean, all hard floor space should be vacuumed and mopped clean accordingly, it may be necessary for the carpets to be washed in the builders clean.
All cabinetry should be dirt free, cleaned on top and hygienic inside and out, all shelves, worktops and surfaces should be wiped over thoroughly, all sanitary ware, kitchen and utility areas should also be sterile, disinfected and squeaky clean.
Electrical switches, sockets, high level light fittings, kitchen electrical's need wiping over as well, sockets and switches may also benefit from paint removal to establish an immaculate finished look.
Windows, double glazing will need sponge washing, rinsing and micro-fibre polishing for a pristine finish, freshly painted windows may need a razor to make the paint work more uniform looking.
All external gutter boards, gutters, soffits & fascia boards will need washing down, pathways, hard standing patios, BBQ areas, balconies will all also be scrubbed down in a builders clean.
