Final clean-up

All tools, equipment and construction wastes will be removed. Areas will be swept, vacuumed or raked as appropriate.

It’s a good idea to do a general cleaning of your home afterwards. Small amounts of dust may have found their way into corners and cracks and may affect the quality of the air you breathe. If the renovation work created a great deal of dust, or took place during the cooler months, you may want to have air conditioning units professionally cleaned.

If the renovation involved exterior work such as external cladding or re-roofing, conduct a final scan of the grounds for nails, small metal pieces and other debris. Some builders use a magnetic device to ensure they pick up as much as possible, but even so, a few items may be missed.
