After Builders Cleaning is a major part of the cleaning trade, it has it's own unique challenges. 

with lots of light coloured dust to remove, these 10 products are perfect for Builders cleans.

1/ Top Spec Microfibre Cloths and Mangle

Don't be tempted to use cheap Microfibre cloth, use a top spec cloth like the Unger Microwipe 4000, you will only need one cloth per person per area as you will be cleaning the cloth out as you go.

Always fold up the cloth and keep turning to a clean side.

Use a weak hard surface solution in the Mangle cloth bucket and when the cloth is full of dirt, wash out in the bucket, pass through the mangle rollers, fold the cloth up again and carry on cleaning. 

This is an excellent system for removing builders dust, very quick and very effective. 


2/ Smart Mopping system

This is the perfect mop system for builders cleans. It removes the dust and dirt instead of diluting it and spreading it around. 

It uses Microfibre, again, as the most effective way of collecting dirt. It has a twin bucket system for rinsing the head.

Use a weak solution of a standard hard surface cleaner in the front bucket. 

Very quick and effective.

A great way of cleaning internal, high level glass without using tower scafolding. 

The Dragonfly system is available with a number of different sized poles for different reaches. It has it's own battery & pump and high level pole and uses a fine mist of water and microfibre heads to clean internal glass and leaves a streak free finish. 


8/ External Glass cleaning

This is a very quick way of cleaning external glass in an after build clean. 

This inexpensive little system relies on mainswater (so you do need access to mains water to use), The standard kit gives you a 20ft reach, other poles are available for higher reaches.

You basically use tap water to remove the worst of the dust from the glass, using the pole and soft brush with mains water being fed up the pole, then you couple up to the resin filter for the final rinse off which gives you a steak free finish. 


9/ Powerbrush XL kit

10/ Easy Dose chemicals

As the correct dilution of any cleaning chemical is key, these containers, with their built-in dosing system are perfect for mobile cleaners and build cleans. 

This saves money and weight of products to carry around.
