Builders Cleans

When a building contractor finishes a build the site needs to be cleaned before internal work can proceed. This is termed a Builder's Initial Clean and is something that Venster Services has a great deal of experience with. We also clean portacabins and other building sites.

Among our customers in this area are:

  • George Leslie Limited
  • Muir Construction

  • both internal and external works
  • all products
