The first step is to get the area dust free. This means closing off all vents, sealing those rooms not covered with plastic, and covering the HVAC system. Next, you’ll need to start from the furthest area (facing the outside) and work everything out the door. Use a bristle or soft-style broom to sweep up as much as possible. This includes cleaning the walls and ceiling to get all loose debris.
Post Construction Dust
Dust is one of the biggest parts of construction cleanup in Ft. Lauderdale. There are three types of dust to include plaster, fine, and brick/mortar. Plaster (drywall) dust can be cleaned using a vinegar-water solution with a dry rag. The basic idea is to lightly dampen the surface and dry it with the cloth. As the solution becomes cloudy, it must be changed to keep everything clean. Brick and mortar dust is challenging. The first step is to use a vacuum to pick up all loose particles. Then, use a damp cloth and a bucket to pick up the remaining particles.
Spackle is used to cover the cracks, defects, and holes in the drywall, and wood. Removing excess spackle left after construction can be challenging if there’s a lot of it. However, if there’s a small amount here and there, you can use a damp sponge or rag and a bucket of water. The basic idea is to use the cloth to gently remove the whitish appearance in a series of passes until it is gone. For tile, the means continually wiping it down to the point there are no more spots or residue left from the spackle.
Post-construction carpet cleaning requires complete vacuuming at the bare minimum. This means going over all areas to get any loose dust and debris. Dried spackle and clumps of dust can quickly turn into damaging elements for carpet throughout your home. Not to mention the dangerous debris that can be nestled between the fibers. You’ll want to prioritize having this done by a professional as soon as possible.
