Two Tips to Follow if You're Having Your Shop Deep-Cleaned After Renovating It
If you've decided to use a local business's commercial cleaning services after having your shop renovated, you might be interested in the advice below.
Make sure you've finished up all of the odd jobs before giving your cleaner the go-ahead
Towards the very end of any renovation project, most people will realise that there are several small jobs that need to be done in order to finish off the renovations. These might include adding an extra piece of wood to a skirting board that is a little too short for the wall it's attached to or adding a bit of extra grouting to the floor so that the grouted lines are flush with the new tiles. If you have a list of odd jobs like this that you want to get done, you should ensure that they are all completed before you give the cleaner the go-ahead to start cleaning.
Whilst these construction jobs might be small, in terms of the short amount of time they'll take and the handful of materials they'll require, they will still probably result in the person who does them making a mess. When grouting is being added, for example, small bits of this material will often end up being transferred from the labourer's hands to the surfaces around them. Likewise, cutting the wood to size for the skirting board will leave sawdust scattered around your shop's floors.
If you make the mistake of assuming that these little jobs won't be messy and you do them after the cleaner has deep-cleaned the premises, you will probably have to get him or her to do a second, slightly shorter round of cleaning or spend your own free time tidying up the mess the completion of these odd jobs has created. If you cannot open your shop until it is pristine, this error might mean that you cannot start operating your enterprise on the date that you originally publicly stated you would.
Put away or remove your construction materials before the cleaning begins
It's also important to either remove or put away any construction tools and leftover supplies before the cleaning begins. Some of these items (like the handsaws) may be hazardous, in which case leaving them on the premises in areas where the cleaner might encounter them and get hurt would be irresponsible.
Also, if there are, for example, large sacks of plaster lying around that the cleaner needs to move to one side to access certain parts of the shop, you should remove these so that their presence doesn't slow the cleaner down, add to their workload unnecessarily or force them to do some heavy lifting that they might not be strong enough to do safely.
