Frequently asked questions

After builders cleaning is more thorough than regular cleaning, and requires specialist equipment. The after builders service removes high levels of dirt and dust from your surfaces, plus the exterior of your kitchen appliances and white goods. Your cleaners will also deep clean the inside of your windows, the outside of cupboards and your skirting boards, to ensure that all dust and dirt is removed.

Renovation and building work often results in lots of dust throughout your property. An after builders clean is designed to remove that before you move back in, so you can be comfortable when you return to the property.

Your cleaners can try to remove small amounts of paint from windows, provided there is no risk of causing damage.

Your cleaners will not remove paint spillages from flooring, due to the risk of further damage. We would recommend you discuss any spillages with your builder.

Inside cupboards and carpet/upholstery cleaning are available as optional extras.

After builders cleaning does not include mould removal or the cleaning of outdoor spaces.

After builders cleaning can be booked for all types of property in London including; homes, offices, warehouses, schools, bars & restaurants, retail and healthcare facilities. Head to the commercial cleaning section of our website for more information.

We're using enhanced cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures, and we're asking customers and cleaners to maintain social distancing at all after builders cleans.
