A clean and organized job site improves productivity and efficiency on a project. You don't have to clear debris and materials each day when you start a new project phase. A little time upfront to clean and organize reduces time spent going forward. Dust and dirt gets more difficult to clear if you let it pile up as well. With an orderly and organized work environment, you have fewer problems with workers bumping into each other. A clean work area also minimizes the risk of trips, falls and costly work site injuries.
Clean job sites are beneficial to construction supervisors and workers, as well as clients. A clean site improves your efficiency as a worker, but it also improves the impression you make on current and potential clients.
Clients also appreciate an organized work area. Business or residential clients often stop by to gauge progress on a project under construction. Disorganization, dirt and clutter makes a bad impression, and this could lead to costly fixes on a current project. You also risk negative word-of-mouth that impedes future project opportunities. Ethically, you also want to prevent dirt and dust from penetrating air vents and mechanical equipment in a home or business building. Properly covering appliances and vent openings minimizes costly problems.
