After the construction is completed on a new home or commercial structure, contractors aren’t tasked with cleaning up the dust and much of the debris left behind. Many owners are under the impression that everything will be move-in ready as soon as the workers depart, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Exterior siding is likely to have dust and loose shavings near installation attachments, curved gutters, and awnings. The contractors have likely left behind some paint on surrounding sidewalks, driveways, entryways, and windows. It’s also probable that gutters have a few stray nails, screws, and residuals from roofing installation.
Speaking of windows, tape and sticker residue remains along with construction dust and fingerprints. Fortunately for home and business owners, an all-in-one solution can be found with a professional window cleaning company like the Squeegee Squad. Let’s explore what these experienced local new construction cleaning companies can do for you.

Residential & Commercial Exterior Pressure Washing for New Constructions
A new home should be sparkling clean and have outstanding curb appeal. Don’t arrive to a mess—call in a professional power washing company that will get things in order before you start the move-in process. Your family, movers, neighbors, and future occupants of your business will feel more comfortable arriving in a hygienic environment.
One of the easiest, fastest, and most affordable ways to make your structure have a look, feel, and appeal that showcases its ‘newness’ is through professional pressure washing utilizing safe, biodegradable cleansers. Care and attention to detail are essential not to damage windows and other fragile surfaces that call for a soft washing process.
The First Stages of Post-Construction Cleanup
Before the pressure washing and other processes even begin, specific surface areas are thoroughly wiped, blown, or swept to prevent creating excessive sludge. These include:
- Parking Lots / Driveways
- Loading Areas
Pre-cleaning the area helps clear away loose stones and paint along with mortar. All of the dirt and debris such as rocks, mud, tack, loose paint, wild animal and bird droppings are swept up and properly disposed of. Afterward, professional pressure washing technicians will apply specialized surfactants and detergents that penetrate stuck-on grime.
These solutions are non-toxic, biodegradable, and pose no threat to occupants or surrounding landscaping and flora. High-powered washing follows to remove any stains, deposits, survey markings, tire marks, paint spills, etc., that remain from the construction process and equipment used during the build.
Detailed Cleaning Zones
A few special situations exist when cleaning post-construction that aren’t typically present during routine maintenance cleanings.
Paint Over-Spray Scraping
Freshly installed siding and window frames that are painted often result in overlaps that end up on windows and other elements unintentionally, even if taped off. This requires buffing or scraping techniques to remove excess paint prior to pressure washing.
Wrapping and Stickers on Glass Surfaces
As with paint-overs, identifying stickers and protective wrapping on windows can leave residue behind. Technicians use processes and solvents during professional window cleaning similar to those employed when removing paint to eradicate these issues.
Dust And Stucco Splatter
Brick installations, stucco siding, and other materials like cement splatter, regardless of the caution contractors use. This inevitability leaves behind unsightly spots that are best removed as soon as possible. Dust will settle upon these surfaces, and stucco, in particular, tends to settle on glass, which requires an intensive removal process.
