Question DetailsAsked on 8/10/2013

Will house cleaners do an awesome post renovation house cleaning? or do I need.a specialist?

I had tile floors removed, concrete leveled and engineered wood put in. The house is vacant during the job. Concerned with the small particles in the air especially with small children and allergies & asthma. Can't find a house cleaner that says they clean post reno. Only move in/move out.

Any good house cleaner can do this - no difference from a move in/move out cleaning for a house that has been vacant for a long time. Just be prepared to pay more than a normal house cleaning - typically $500 or so for a ceiling to floor cleaning, assuming the contractor did not leave plaster chunks and slivers in the rug, etc - contractor should have cleaned "broom clean" after the work was doen, so you should be after just dust top to bottom, and a real good wall and floor scrubbing.

With allergy/asthma problems in the family, I would also recommend a complete filter changing on your HVAC system AFTER the final cleaning, and possibly a portable HEPA air filter unit in the child's bedrooms for a month or so. I wold also recommend steam cleaning of any new carpets - not only to remove dust (which should not be a lot, because they should have been the last thing to go in), but also to reduce the chemical outgassing - steam cleaning accelerates that and removes a lot of sourde of the "factory smell" chemical fumes.
