Cleaning the house after renovation

Hi all,
My brother is a bank employee. As a part of his job, he and his wife are planning to shift to Oakville. Hence they bought a home there. Although it is a very old house, it looks very beautiful. Hence they had to do only slight renovation works.

The house is a 2BHK house. One of the main issues of the house is that one of the bedrooms is no bath attached and there is no common bathroom. Hence they added a bathroom to the bedroom that has an entry from the living room. Although it is a well-furnished house, they changed the dinette and the sofa. As there were no kitchen cabinets, they added cabinets to the kitchen.

After all these small renovations, the house is a little bit messed up. So before they shift to the house, they would like to get it properly cleaned. He asked me to enquire about the cleaning services. When I spoke to one of our neighbors in Oakville, they told about professional cleaning services. Hence we are planning to contact one such company. I would like to know whether I need to provide any cleaning equipments that are necessary to clean the house. As they haven't started living there, such equipments will not be available in the house. So I just need a confirmation. And it's the first time that I'm going hire such a service.

I do not know where Oakville is, but I can answer most of your questions.

Most cleaning people, like me, provide all the cleaning products needed. (You should see my car!) This includes a vacuum cleaner, broom, mop, cleaning fluids, cloths to clean with, sponges, etc etc.
If a customer has a product they insist I use, they provide it and I use it. I think most cleaning people do something similar. A house cleaner isnt just a "work machine." Most of us really like to clean and want to use the best possible products in their work.

What you should do is, when you contact a cleaning person, TELL them they have to supply all cleaning materials. If they balk, forget them and move on. Interview several people, and try to find reviews of their work online. READ those reviews! If you call a company and you get the distinct feeling the person is just a salesman/woman for the company, forget about it. You want to talk with the person who WILL be cleaning this house.

This is, of course, my opinion on this and I am sure others will respond.

It completely depends on the type of cleaning which is needed to be done. Generally, it is required to have wipers, cleaning chemical, tough stain remover, scrubber, and more to cleaning house after renovation.

I think if you google a little, you will find exactly what you need. You can also hire a person who will do everything. Perhaps it will be even safer ... When I moved to a new house, I hired a person who helped me with everything. If I'm not mistaken, then they are called handymen. This person did a complete cleaning of my house, and also replaced the problem siding with new ones from I hope you succeed. Good luck!
yeap, u are absolutely right
