Congratulations on completing your home renovation! Like many home owners, you cannot wait to quickly move in and enjoy the new living room or that new balcony. However, do you know that the real work begins now? Do you know the importance of a thorough cleaning after renovation? This is part of the renovation process that you want to take some time to do it properly.
Some interior designers or contractors would have included a general cleaning of your home after renovation. However, dust, dirt, paint stains, dried cement and other debris might still be left behind. Therefore, it is a must to do a thorough after-renovation cleaning of your home.
Why is it important to do a thorough post-renovation cleaning?
It is important because of the following reasons:
- Harmful toxic elements are still present
Some toxic elements, such as leftover paint containers could still be lying around in the house. As a result, they can cause harm to the health of occupants and pets in the family.
Excess dust is another harmful component that can affect the health and general well-being of your home family members. This is especially so for the elderly and young children.
- Spotting of any issues for rectification
Doing a thorough after-renovation cleaning is important and can also help you to spot any issues that have been overlooked or not done well by the contractor.
When you do a thorough after-renovation cleaning of your home, it allows you to take a closer look at the renovated works. Hence, you can highlight any issues to your interior designers or contractors immediately.
Time and effort
In order to do a thorough post-renovation cleaning of your home, you need time and effort to do it. It is an extremely labour-intensive job to clean up after renovation. Your precious time and energy can be better utilised for new furniture shopping at Ikea or even browsing through the Home & Decor magazine to find the best style and design for your home.
All-in-all, it is important to have our homes cleaned whether if it is after renovation or not. Scheduled weekly home cleaning or housekeeping is necessary even in the midst of our busy schedule. Having a clean environment makes it a good place to live in. Furthermore, it can also lift our spirits and we are kept safe from any harm or danger that a messy place could give us.
Be blessed and enjoy your home 🙂
