Before you start cleaning your home, make sure to open all the windows. It’s a great way to draw the dust out, allow fresh air in and reduce the post-renovation smell. If you have an air purifier at home, switch it on as well to absorb excess dust – inhaling too much dust could cause respiratory problems such as coughing or runny nose.

Have your cleaning tools and supplies ready at hand by corralling them in a portable caddy or bucket. Some items to include in your cleaning toolkit:

When a home renovation is being carried out, dust and dirt particles will inevitably make their way to the vents. Remove the filters from the air-conditioner and kitchen hood and clean them with soap and warm water. Let it fully dry before putting it back.

If the filters are old and dirty, take this opportunity to change them. Ensure that everything is clean to prevent any dust particles from circulating the house.

Step 5: Vacuum & Mop Floors

Start by vacuuming the floors to remove any stray hairs and debris – it reduces the risk of scratching floor tiles with fine grains of dust when you’re mopping. If there are any larger debris from the construction works, sweep it up with a broom and dustpan before vacuuming.

As for baseboard and ledges, wipe away the dust with a dryer sheet – not only does it effectively collect all the dust, but it also leaves behind a residue that repels dust in the future.

Once your floors are clean, end off your deep-cleaning session by mopping the floors. Be sure to clean even the tightest spaces to ensure there’s no hidden dust.

Step 6: Wash & Vacuum Furniture & Soft Furnishings

Vacuum dust from furniture, how to clean house after renovation, post renovation cleaning tips, best way to remove dust from furniture, Style Degree, Singapore, SG, StyleMag.

Now that you’ve vacuumed and mopped the floor, it’s time to bring in your furniture. Before you start relaxing on your new sofa or mattress, do take the time to vacuum up all the hidden dust. Change the vacuum attachment as needed to get every single speck of dust out of the crevices.

Similarly, slowly run the vacuum over your newly rolled out carpet to ensure that it’s picking up all the dust particles. 

Baking soda on the carpet, how to remove new carpet smell, how to clean house after renovation, Style Degree, Singapore, SG, StyleMag.

Dislike the smell of your new sofa or carpet? Sprinkle some baking soda on these items and let them sit for about an hour before vacuuming them away. The baking soda will absorb any chemical odours, leaving your furniture and carpet smelling fresh!

Tip: Transfer the baking soda into a shaker bottle to remove clumps that might cause uneven distribution!

For removable covers and soft furnishings such as pillowcase, bedding and curtains, give it a good shake outside your home before washing it. This is to ensure that you’ve completely gotten rid of any dust that might be residing in the furniture. Additionally, these specks of dust can loosen the fabric weave, leading to wear and tear.

If you find the post-renovation cleanup process to be too taxing to be done alone, consider hiring a professional cleaner to help you clear your space! 

There are plenty of local home cleaning services out there such as Helpling, Singapore House Cleaning and Fresh Cleaning. Depending on the size of the house and the customer specifications, prices will range between $140 to $600.

Tip: When looking at the various cleaning packages, it would be advisable to refer to the square feet of your home rather than the type of house! If you are unsure, do contact the cleaning company for a better price estimate.

How Much Does A Professional Post-Renovation Cleaner Cost?

Be sure to inform the cleaning company of the size of your home so they can dispatch the right number of cleaners to get your home clean efficiently. Additionally, let them know exactly which areas you want them to clean so they won’t miss out on it.

How To Choose The Right Cleaning Company? 

Now, when it comes to choosing the right professional home cleaning service for yourself, do read the online reviews or get referrals from your family and friends. This gives you a better understanding of the company’s services.

Another factor to consider before hiring a cleaner would be the company’s insurance and policy. Find out if they will cover the costs of any damage, theft or injury that occurs in your home; the company should be able to provide you with a copy of their policies upon request.
