Best Practices for Cleaning up Your Construction Site in a Hurry


If you are a contractor who works on various projects, or you are a homeowner doing your own home renovations, you know how messy construction can get. While there is no way to have a dust-free site as you are tearing down walls, installing tiles and cutting drywall, there are best practices to clean up in a hurry after a long day of hard labor at the job site. Here are four valuable tips that you can use so that you’re not stuck tripping over tools and trash at your site all day long.

Make Cleanliness on the Site a Priority

If you are in charge at the site, you should set a good example by setting your expectations high. Let your employees or friends that are helping out know that keeping the site clean is important to you and let them know the consequences if they don’t stay tidy. Lead by example by throwing away your wood scraps, sweeping up the wood dust, and straightening up your materials often and it will make all of the difference at the end of the day by preventing any large messes.

Trash Cans Should Be Strategically Placed

When you visit an establishment and there are no trash cans, you have no choice but to dispose of your trash somewhere where it doesn’t belong. The same goes for your construction site. You wouldn’t believe how much of a difference a few trash cans strewn about the property could make. If you only have one or two at the edge of the property, your crew will not have time to take their trash to the curb dozens of times. If you have a receptacle close to every work area, they’ll be easy for everyone to access for convenience clean up.

Hire Industrial Bins for Quick Trash Disposal

Renting industrial dumpsters that are delivered to your work site can make for easy cleanup at the end of the day. You can rent various sized bins from waste disposal companies like Ontario Trucking and Disposal, and have them delivered to you and removed to save the time. Simply dump the trash from the cans around the property and load the large waste and the trash is no longer your problem.

Set Daily Cleanup Breaks

Trash can pile up throughout the day. It’s much harder to cleanup all at once when the day is over. If you commit to scheduling a cleanup time right before lunch, you can clean the site in a hurry at end of day. When it’s time to leave, set aside 15 minutes to shop vac and wipe surfaces down and you’re all set.
No one likes to clean after a long and hard day. There are ways to make the chore if cleanup much quicker and easier. Get the right tools for the site, and be a clean leader that follows the best practices.
