Home renovations are known for creating a huge mess. You’ll have leftover materials laying around, sawdust covering everything, power tools to move, and more.

Plan Ahead

How you clean up after a major renovation will depend on the role you will play in the renovation. If you’re going to be doing a significant amount of the work yourself, or you’re working with someone else on the project, you’ll have a better idea of how much work it will take to clean up afterwards, and you’ll be able to start cleaning early if you know what can be removed before the project is complete.

Before you begin your project, your should plan ahead and try to estimate exactly what will be needed to clean up the mess. Are you going to need to rent a dumpster? Will you need to hire a cleaning or disposal company? What needs to be cleaned up first and what can wait? These are all questions that you should be asking yourself before you begin and you should try to write all this down so that you don’t forget.

Hire A Clean-Up Company

Many cleaning companies out there will specifically offer renovation cleanup services. This could include anything from removing heavy debris that is difficult to dispose of, sanitizing, or removing sawdust. Depending on the size of your project, this may or may not be necessary. Larger projects will create a bigger mess and may justify calling a janitorial company to clean up afterwards.

If you or a family member has asthma, it may be best to hire a professional cleaning company regardless of the size. Sawdust and other small debris left over from the project could lead to asthma attacks or other respiratory issues if breathed in. A professional cleaning company will also help you dispose of debris that may be difficult otherwise. For example, if you had a sink or toilet replaced, you may not be able to move them alone.
