Industry Spotlight: Cleaning Services For The Construction Industry

Spring is always a popular time for completion on new build houses and at Rainbow, we offer a wide range of cleaning services for the construction industry.

Before you hand over those keys a sparkle clean to ensure you make the best first impression can be much more important than you’d have thought.

A good first impression will:

  • Make it more likely that the new homeowners will buy from you again in future.
  • Improve your relationship with the homeowners (helpful as you could find yourselves living and working alongside each other for a while)
  • Increase customer satisfaction, reducing the likelihood of minor issues becoming more major ones on the snagging list.

Professional cleaners have the equipment and skills to carry out each task to a high standard. However, they can also work around your existing tradesmen to ensure that last-minute glitches or the need for cleaning don’t delay handover.

In addition to a builders’ clean, there are many other cleaning services for the construction industry that will help your new home handovers go smoothly.

Carpet cleaning services

It’s the day before you’re due to hand over the keys and a tradesman steps on the newly varnished threshold and then onto the carpet. You’ve got 24 hours to remove a seemingly indelible footprint, and no amount of water is doing the job.

This happens more often than anyone would guess, and when it does it doesn’t have to delay completion.

Scrubbing with water and supermarket stain removers can leave watermarks on the carpet or even spread the stain, making it even more difficult to remove.

The trick to saving the carpet is to call in the professionals quickly.

Our professional carpet cleaners have industrial grade cleaning fluids and equipment that can remove the majority of stains, however stubborn. Paired with an understanding of the different types of materials and fibres and how to treat them, professional cleaning is your best chance at removing those stains quickly.

Builders’ Cleans

On a building site, sand and dust stick to everything. Windows, soffits and fascias – you name it. However, making sure that your new-build property is free from the red stuff before you hand over the keys can make a difference to your brand image and to the buyer’s first days in their new home.

Also referred to as a Sparkle Clean, a Builders’ Clean, involves thoroughly removing all dirt, dust and grime from a new home, inside and out.

At Rainbow International, we have teams that are trained and equipped to carry out a builders’ clean on single or multiple properties.

We can fit around your tradesman to help you get the new owners into their property as quickly as possible.

Sparkle cleans aren’t just for residential properties either. We also carry out sparkle cleans of newly built showrooms and retail facilities too.

Leak detection

Once a property has been connected to mains water and sewage, issues can start to show themselves. Poor connections or pipes breached in the building process can cause extensive damage if not caught quickly.

Rainbow International’s leak detection teams have a range of leak detection equipment. From thermal imaging to tracer gas or acoustic testing equipment, they’ll establish the best way to determine the source of your water leak, identifying the source quickly, and with the minimum amount of upheaval for you and new homeowners.

Blast Cleaning

When building sites are left unattended overnight they can become a magnet for graffiti ‘artists’. Understandably, their artistic talents aren’t usually appreciated by homeowners or potential homeowners.

Our blast cleaning teams can remove all traces of graffiti quickly and easily so you don’t have to worry about putting off buyers and disturbing new homeowners.

It’s not just graffiti either. That tin of paint that was dropped on the newly laid tarmac – we can get that cleaned up in no time.
