Do you have a preffered set of equipment for construction clean up jobs?
 
I've been into home cleaning for at least 4 years now and we sometimes get calls from companies that need cleaning after a renovation/construction. I see this as an opportunity to spread my wings and maybe tackle new challenges. Do you guys have a preffered set of equipment / chemicals to take on construction clean up jobs?

Shop Vacs
 
I don't usually do construction clean up, but when I do I always bring a Shop Vac.

Yeah, it turns out the vacuum we use for residential cleaning is nowhere near enough for a construction cleaning job. We definitely need more power and an easier way to transport excess construction materials to somewhere else. Dust is really heavy too and I got some sort of wood shavings in my eye when I was vacuuming. I guess a protective glasses would be a good investment.

Yes usually we take, dust mop, buckets, vacuum, ladders, rags, mop bucket, dusting pan, magic erasers for the window frame marks, simple green, restroom equipment, and other misc. stuff.

Hot-water pressure washing is ideal for cleaning accumulated grease and debris from tools, trucks, heavy equipment and other construction vehicles. You need to clean to impress!

We use the same equipment and chemicals that we normally use except we add a shop-vac, putty knife to scrape up plaster, glue etc, power washer for exterior cleaning and a heavy push broom.

Yes, definitely one should be more fully equipped when doing a post construction clean due to the heavy layer of dust and all construction debris.

Agreed with the stand lists for cleaning as described above. I like my Ridgid shop-vac--very durable and lifetime warrantee!
