Getting the construction of your dream home going in Abu Dhabi is a huge undertaking. But construction is only a part of the process. When all is done and completed according to your plans and preferences, you will then have to make sure that the place is fully ready to be occupied and lived on. That means you will have to do a lot of vacuuming, scrubbing, and making the place worthy to be called an abode. Indeed, post-construction cleaning is as important as the construction itself. Without doing the important housework, the place would remain just a building and not a home. But making the place livable after the full construction process is a magnanimous task, and often entails hard work and a lot of time. If the task is too great for you, it is easier to just hire cleaning companies in Abu Dhabi to do the dirty job and all the hard work. But if you have the time and want to make the place ready by yourself, here are some tips on how you can make your newly-constructed or newly-renovated home ready for its occupants.
Tip #1: Remove All Construction Debris
Getting rid of all construction left-overs is a crucial step when making a home ready after the renovation or building process. Make sure to discard all left-over materials, such as wood splinters, plastic sheeting, paints, adhesives, bolts, screws, nails, and any other hardware parts and trash. Most of the time, construction debris come in a huge pile and may need to be removed by cleaning services in Abu Dhabi, but if you have the means and know where to put all the trash, then you can do it yourself. Just be sure to use all precautionary measures when removing any construction left-over to prevent any injury.
Tip #2: Scrub the Walls and Baseboards
Completely wipe all dust and dirt that might have clung to the walls and baseboards during construction. You do not have to use harsh chemicals for this endeavor. A combination of water and detergent is enough to help get rid of any dust. See also if there are any dents or scratches on the walls and baseboards, or if there are any areas that need to be repaired or repainted again. Heavy traffic during the construction process can sometimes cause minor damage to walls. If you ever see some areas that need attention, feel free to call your contractor and have them perform some minor patching or repaints.
Tip #3: Clean the Ceiling, Doors, Closets, and Cabinets
The ceiling is often not given attention during the clean-up process, but like any other part of the house, dirt and dust could cling there. If you want to make your newly-renovated house or newly-built abode completely clean, make sure to include the ceiling in your list of areas to be cleaned.
It is also highly recommended to wipe doors clean with soap and water. Make sure as well to clean closets and cabinets.
Tip #4: Scrub and Vacuum the Floor
The floor is most often the most affected during the construction process. Therefore, you may need more time and more effort in cleaning it. The floor needs to be freed from all construction debris before it can be thoroughly cleaned, so be sure that tip number one is completely carried out before cleaning out the floors. You may need to sweep or vacuum piles and piles of dust and dirt, mop to remove any dirt that may have clung to the surface, wax, and buff to get that sparkly, clean feel. You may even have to disinfect and perform some washing to get rid of unpleasant odors caused by paints and other construction chemicals. If you have a big house and quite a large area of floor to be cleaned, it may help to get professional help from trained hourly maids in Abu Dhabi. Doing so can help free up some of your time and prepare you for the next tedious task, which is moving in.
Tip #5: Clean the Kitchen and Bathrooms
The cleaning process is not complete if you leave out the kitchen and the bathrooms. For the kitchen, make sure that all kitchen cabinets and countertops are wiped free of dirt and dust. For the bathrooms, make sure that the toilet, sinks, tubs, and shower enclosures are scrubbed and sanitized.
Tip #6: Wash the Windows and the Exterior of the House
To complete the post-construction cleaning process, wash the glass windows with soap and water, and make sure that the exterior of the house is cleaned as well. If needed, sweep or wash the driveway and the sidewalk.
When all the post-construction cleaning tips above are done, it is time to decorate your new place and make it feel like the home you have always wanted.
