End of site cleaning: what does it consist of?

Cleaning at the end of the construction site concerns companies carrying out construction or renovation sites. The latter are obliged to deliver clean places to their customers (Standard NF P 03-001). So, at the end of the site, they call on providers specialized in cleaning at the end of the site.

The end-of-construction cleaning stage is carried out during the so-called OPR (Pre-Reception Operations) phase.

Concretely, this consists of:

  • Make floors clean by hand washing or using more practical machines (monobrushes, or scrubbers…),
  • Disinfect certain rooms (sanitary, kitchens),
  • Evacuate and eliminate construction waste and residues (rubble, plaster, sawdust, etc.),
  • Wash ceilings and walls,
  • Dust, vacuum, sweep and vacuum the different spaces including cupboards and other ventilation ducts,
  • Clean dirt (glues and paints)
  • Degrease, scrape, wash and polish windows (panes, windowsills, seals),
  • Ventilate the place to evacuate odors and disinfect the air.

Professional cleaning: what is stripping with air scrub?

Airbrushing is used to strip surfaces to remove paints, graffiti, traces of rust, etc. It is used on walls, boat hulls, facades, monuments, etc. The technique consists of spraying an abrasive aggregate (sanding) using compressed air at low pressure (less than 9 bars).

Airbrushing is carried out using a dedicated machine: the airbrusher. The airbrush tube is terminated with a nozzle to increase the speed of the mixture leaving.

When water is added to the abrasive compound and to the air, it is called hydrogommage.

There are companies specializing in air-scrub and hydro-scrub, which offer their services to communities to treat the furniture, walls and monuments of a city.

What materials for the maintenance of the premises?

There are many devices used by cleaning professionals. They make it possible to gain speed and efficiency. Among these devices are:

  • the professional cleaning trolley: thanks to its casters, this equipment simplifies the transport of professional cleaning equipment. Cleaning agents are more mobile and cleaning products, brooms, textiles (cloths and microfiber cloths), sponges, trash cans, and buckets easily find their place.
  • The vacuum cleaner: depending on the model, it can vacuum ash, asbestos, sawdust, water and dust …
  • The scrubber-dryer: widely used in supermarkets and hotels (floors, escalators, corridors and halls) to vacuum, wash and dry surfaces. There are compact, self-propelled, self-supporting and autonomous (automatic) models.
  • The monobrush: it is suitable for cleaning, stripping, buffing and polishing floors.
  • The sweeper: it allows you to scrape, vacuum and collect residues. It is available in thermal, industrial, manual and road version.
  • The steam cleaner: it diffuses a steam which provides deep cleaning of floors, walls and workshop tools.
  • The high pressure cleaner: recommended for stripping and cleaning floors, walls, and machines, it is suitable for all types of surfaces. They exist with electric or thermal motor.

What is wet sweeping (smooth floors)?

The purpose of wet sweeping is to dust the floor without using a vacuum cleaner. The dust is collected using a broom with wet gauze. he gauze remains in contact with the ground to collect the dust. You can push the broom or perform S on the ground.

In practice, it is important to:

  • do not lift the mop sole
  • do not go backwards with the broom

This type of manipulation would have the consequences of redepositing the
dust on the floor.

It is advisable to start with inaccessible places (along walls, under furniture, etc.), then take care of open spaces and finish at the entrance to the room. The gauze is changed when you arrive in a new room.

The wet sweep collects all the dust particles on a smooth floor, which is particularly suitable for liners of the “lino” type frequently used in hospitals. The passage of wet gauze necessarily cleans a little, if not a lot, if you add detergent.

The main advantage of wet sweeping is to avoid air and dust mixing, noise and electricity consumption! Up to 90% of the dust can be captured using this process.
