Rough Clean vs Final Cleaning: Please Explain

I have a small Pressure Washing company and usually do nothing but residential work. However, I am looking to expand and was thinking of doing some post construction cleanup. I see that there is a "rough" and "final" cleaning involved. Could someone please go into a little detail about the exacts involved between the two? Thanks in advance for any help.

Rough cleaning is made between constructor work (usually to make easy and safe the work for the builders until they finish.

Final Cleaning is a detailed cleaning in order to move the owner to live in the home.

Rough construction cleanup include like:
Clean all toilets, tubs, kitchen sinks and appliances. Remove any and all temporary protection and labels not necessary to remain.

Final constructions clean-up includes like:
Clean and polish kitchen cabinets, kitchen counter tops, and vanity
tops. Vacuum the inside of all cabinets, to remove dirt and trash.

It really depends on your area.
Rough cleaning is usually a good solid wipe down of surfaces,kitchens,baths,cabinets in and out,broom sweep all flooring.As the carpets and tile may or may not be installed yet.
Final-more details repeat of the areas in the rough clean but include the window cleaning and the final clean on the floors.
To stay safe-type up a scope of work(what you are pricing out)
Type up the quote and separate the rough from the final.Each one lists what you plan to do at each stage.
Where you have to be careful is-the contractors wants one big final clean.The house is backfilled with sand and leftover trash and parts and pieces from the sloppy trades.
List what you will do-as in.
1 (one) Final Clean
includes and list what you are including for the price.
As well,list what you are excluding-do you really want to make trips to the landfill to remove all the trash? if not you bettered say so.
Go slow and be careful that you do not make blanket statements
For example- clean all windows
How about-clean windows to remove dirt and light debris.
You have to think about things like what if the painter solidly sprays the windows and door handles and hinges?
Are you including that in your price?
What if the tile contractor leaves so much grout on the face of the tile that you cannot get it off?
Including that?
Watch your wording
try this-clean tile to remove dirt.Excessive grout to be removed by tile contractor.

Rough cleaning involves the removal of large debris and trash, stickers will be removed from windows and the unit will be swept out. This phase will help prepare for the incoming subs for painting, flooring, fixtures and cabinetry.

Quotes and what they really say

The wording that you agree to in a contract could get you into hot water,and not in a good way.

Be careful what you are agreeing to...read everything carefully.More importantly,be careful what you are typing into them.

For example:I see many cleaning people use the word polish,when what they actually mean is that they will dry it real well.As in bathroom and kitchen countertops. Clean and polish?! the countertops...really?

Do you really want to hand polish all of the countertops?

Then don't say you will.

Rough clean up would be like sweeping. A thorough clean involves removing any hint of sheet rock dust, windows, etc... BIG difference. Quote appropriately.

In Australia, Initial / Rough clean is just a general clean so other trades like painters can start their work. Final clean is the works, this includes removing trade defects such as removing grout haze, paint on floorboards, clearing up grout lines etc.

Actually depending on where you're at and what state there is also a couple of extra steps in between the rough and final a rough consists of going to the construction site and usually the windows and stuff aren't in yet it's just the frames and the you know cement or whatever and you go in and clean up clean up all the stuff around you know and then you'll go in another time and you'll don't have the windows in at that point and the stucco on the outside walls and you'll go in and you'll do all the cabinets inside and out cuz those are in and then you'll do the windows consisting of washing scraping making sure they're nice and then after that then you'll have you'll go the last one before the final you'll go in and you'll clean up you know all the you'll do like a semi final and then for the final you go in and you clean it top to bottom clean up the glue off the floors Etc make it really beautiful so they can show it and have open house. Some contractors have you clean up and haul off all the stuff when I do it I don't haul off I just do the cleaning and it's pretty easy actually it's good money. Good luck in your business hope it works out for you!

Should you price it out by the square foot or?
I found an easier way.

The original poster's question had to do with pressure washing, NOT "cleaning" in the usual sense.
