Site Prep and Cleaning

Stages of Construction Cleanup:

  1. Rough Cleaning: This initial stage focuses on removing large debris and construction materials, such as scraps of wood, metal, or wiring. It's crucial for making the site safe for further work or inspection​.
  2. Final Cleaning: Once the bulk of the debris is cleared, the final cleaning phase ensures the site is ready for the trim carpenters, painters, and others that follow.
  3. Exterior Cleanup: The cleanup process also extends to the exterior, involving the removal of any construction materials left outside and sweeping up on new construction, and much more on tenant finish and occupied spaces​.
