Terms used in this document

►SITE SUPERINTENDENT: shall refer to any Builder representative with authority to enforce this Scope of Work.

Acceptable Performance
► Cleaning is divided into five phases: Cleaning General, Cleaning Millwork and Cabinets, Cleaning Floors, Cleaning Windows, and Cleaning Hardware, Fixtures and Appliances. All five phases are included in this Scope of Work.
Cleaning: General

► Final cleaning is performed after all finish work is complete. It is done prior to the homeowner's walk-through. The final cleaning should leave the home in "ready-to-move-in" condition.
► The cleaning Subcontractor has the closest contact with all areas of the house (cabinets, tubs, sinks, vinyl, carpet, etc.) and is the Subcontractor most likely to note damage to any of these items. It is the responsibility of the Subcontractor to note any damage and report it to the Site Superintendent as soon as the job is completed.
► Using a vacuum with attachments, all walls, trim, etc., should be vacuumed to remove all dust and sanding residue. This will cut down on the amount of wet cleaning that must be done.
► Tubs and sinks shall be cleaned with a nonabrasive cleaner, rinsed, and dried to a shine. Any chips or damages should be reported to the Site Superintendent.
► Items such as vinyl, hardwood, parquet, and oak flooring, corners on stair treads, bathtubs, showers, sinks, and countertops should be covered and protected when the cleaning crew arrives. The cleaning crew should remove all protective coverings. Protective items that can be used again, such as bathtub covers, should be stacked in garage.
► Finished basements shall be cleaned as if they are any other part of the house (baths, windows, etc.).
► Unfinished basements, storage areas, and garages shall be broom-swept and then wet-mopped to remove drywall dust and dirt.
► Cardboard, plastic, etc., should be removed to the dumpster or to an area designated by the Site Superintendent.
► All Subcontractors are required to place all Warranty manuals, instruction manuals, etc., in the drawer to the left of the range in the kitchen. These manuals should be returned to that drawer after cleaning.

Cleaning: Millwork and Cabinets

► All cabinets shall be cleaned on the outside to remove streaks, construction dirt, fingerprints, etc., with a cleaner that will not damage the finish of the cabinets.
► Cabinets (kitchen, baths, etc.) and all cabinet drawers shall be wiped clean on the inside with no residue of sawdust, dirt, etc.
► All trim should be dusted.
► The kitchen sink should have both the strainer and stopper in the drawer to the left of the sink or under the sink. Both of these items should be thoroughly cleaned and look new. If they cannot be cleaned the Site Superintendent is to be notified so that replacements can be received prior to the walk-through.
► All doors, doorframes, and window ledges shall be damp-wiped.
► All trim and base should be dusted to remove all construction dust. If any scuff marks, etc., are found on base or trim they should be removed by wiping or cleaning. If they cannot be cleaned, notify the Site Superintendent.
► All handrails and pickets shall be damp-wiped to remove all dust, fingerprints, etc.
► All thresholds shall be cleaned so they are free of dirt, mud, etc. Remove any protective coverings.

► All carpets shall be thoroughly vacuumed and small spots shall be cleaned. Any larger areas of dirty carpet or large stains must be report to the Site Superintendent for outside cleaning.
