This article is all about everything you need to know about builders cleaners
The purpose of this article is to give anyone who needs it, as much information about hiring a cleaner for construction works.
In terms of the building industry, cleaners have two main roles.
Firstly, they are hired to clean the site regularly to prevent illness, to increase health and safety standards and well, to keep things nice and clean.
Secondly, cleaners are hired at the end of the project to carry out a builders clean. This is when the builder is completely finished and the whole property needs to be cleaned thoroughly.
There is so much builders dust and dirt throughout the property that a builders clean will take a couple of days depending on the size of the property. Its not just a simple clean, there needs to be a thorough clean of the property.
You literally do not need any skills to be a cleaner.
All you need to do is join a cleaning company and they will train you up and you learn on the job.
If you want to set up your own business all you need is transport and start contacting local builders.
The best procedure for finding a cleaner is this:
Carry out a thorough research survey of the internet for cleaners.
Then contact them all and ask for a quotation — send them your brief.
The cleaning businesses will most likely want to come to your property for a quick survey.
Compare the quotations.
Appoint one company confirming the details by email.
We are reluctant to speculate on prices for any trade. The best way to find out a price is to contact several companies and you will quickly understand the market rate.
Cleaners rates will closely follow the local minimum wage as they are such low-skill positions/have such ease of entry into the marketplace.
You need to check the following:
Are they insured? They must have public liability insurance.
Their staff must all be police checked. The last person you want in your property is a criminal.
Expect the cleaning process to go like this: the cleaners arrive and carry out their major clean. Then their supervisor will check everything and once he or she is satisfied they will ask you to sign off the works as complete. If you have any issues or would like more works carried out then ask them then and there.
