Construction site cleanup services perform a final cleaning and removal of left over construction materials for commercial and residential properties. This work often involves long hours, heavy lifting and attention to detail. Window cleaning, dust removal, metal polishing and removing building materials, such as pipes, electrical wiring, wood and metal, are common tasks. Construction companies, home remodeling companies and property management companies use construction site cleanup services to ready spaces for sale or lease.
Apply for a business license to operate a construction site cleanup business in your area. Contact the county clerk's office or small business administration office to inquire about business licensing forms and fees. Register your cleanup business with your state's secretary of state's office if forming a corporation, limited liability company or partnership. Apply for an employer identification number with the Internal Revenue Service to use on all business and tax documentation. Purchase business insurance such as general liability, auto, worker's compensation and property insurance. This insurance helps protect your business in the event of an accident or injury on a job site.
Hire employees with construction or industrial clean up experience. Depending on state regulations, employees may need to be bonded to work legally on construction sites. Surety bonds help cover the costs of legal fees in the event of a lawsuit or settlement. Require potential employees to purchase surety bonds from licensed insurance providers and ask for a copy of surety bond certificates for your records.
Purchase construction cleanup equipment and supplies. Equipment may include small bulldozers for removing heavy construction debris, industrial garbage bins, window cleaning supplies, wood, metal or stone cleaning supplies, brooms, dust pans, window cleaner, metal polishing chemicals and safety equipment, such as dust masks, first aid kits, uniforms and hard hats. Lease or purchase a company vehicle for hauling cleanup equipment.
Contact local construction companies, janitorial services, property management companies and renovation companies to market your services. Create a brochure that outlines specific and general cleaning services, before and after photos, contact information and hours of operation.
