Why the need to do post-renovation cleaning?
Normally, after any renovation is done, the contractors’ job is done and you will find yourself surrounded in a dusty environment as it is not under the contractors’ job scope in ensuring that the home needs to be clean before the handover.

However, do take note that upon shifting in your furniture after your cleaning, you would still need to do a brief cleaning of your furniture as they could have been brought in from a warehouse or storage place that might be dusty.

Compared to normal routine cleaning, deep cleaning is more thorough and normally covers more areas of cleaning which include high areas, hard to reach areas. This is another reason why it is advisable for the place to be clean before shifting in the furniture, less hindrance to facilitate the post renovation cleaning.
