We interviewed Tony Moceri of Moceri Construction to find out what he looks for in a good construction clean-up sub contractor.
"When the home owner comes in, we don't want them to even know that the cleaners have been there. The goal is, they come in and say 'This looks fantastic!'
"Our specialty [at Moceri] is providing Turn-Key services, from the first scoop of dirt in the ground, to getting the home professionally cleaned when we're headed out the door. The house is going to be move in ready. When the owners walk in that house, they don’t KNOW all of the construction mess that has gone on there. We keep the site clean, but there are certain messes that you just HAVE to get a professional cleaner for"

What are the biggest cleaning mistakes homeowners make?
"I've seen homeowner come into their new remodel or construction and use the wrong type of cleaner on paint, granite countertops, or wood floors, and immediately damage the beautiful new space we just built them. It's definitely worth it to get some help from a professional cleaner. I've even seen some homeowners who like the clean feel so much, that they hire the pro-cleaners to keep their house after they've moved back in!
