No matter what building project that is being worked on, there is always
some trash, wasted materials or general debris lying around.
Surprisingly, most workers aren’t concerned with this problem because
someone else is supposed to clean up the mess. Unfortunately, this is a
larger problem than most people realize. The more junk or scrap pieces
lying around, the more likely that a worker or visitor to the site will
get injured. The solution is simple with debris removal and cleaning. A
clean and organized work site makes the contractors job much easier, and
it can often make the job go together a bit quicker.
contractor like to take care of their own debris for various reasons.
For instance, there are contractors who handle remodels that salvage any
older wood for other projects. This can actually benefit the contractor
since old wood is often hard to locate. Plus, salvaging old waste like
this keeps a lot of difficult to break down materials out of the
Workers cleaning up after themselves and a tidy work
area are great things to shoot for, but there are other advantages as
well. For example, a clean and organized work site with routine Debris
removal and cleaning can help the contractor keep track of building
inventory. The less material that gets lost or stolen, the sooner the
construction is finished. It can be very surprising how much lumber,
trim, windows and other building products disappear from construction
sites due to theft alone. A clean and organized site lets everyone know
that this stuff is being watched.
Perhaps the most important
reason to invest in job site cleanliness is the health of the workers.
On the job, injuries are more common and usually much more dangerous on
an unkempt site. All it takes is one worker carrying a load of two by
four studs tripping over a little trash to break an arm or leg. If the
project is a multiple story jobs, then there is the additional worry
that an accident can cause a worker to fall off the building. Remember
