Maintaining customer satisfaction is a crucial aspect of any business, but it’s even more important for construction cleaning companies that have earned the prestigious Diamond Certified award. For Construction Clean-up by Gabi, Inc., the most effective way to keep clients happy is to take a comprehensive, detail-oriented approach to their projects, regardless of the extent of the work. “I love to make people happy, and one of the best ways to do that is to make their homes as clean as possible,” says owner Gabi Rodas. “By communicating with my customers and explaining the products and cleaning methods I use, I’m able to ensure they have positive experiences.”

Unlike cleaning companies that don’t understand the ins and outs of construction cleaning and limit their services as a result, Construction Clean-up by Gabi has years of experience when it comes to cleaning homes that have just been remodeled, renovated or redecorated. “Homes that have been under construction can have a lot of leftover metal fragments and dust, which can be difficult to remove and hazardous to the residents’ health, but I know exactly how to handle those situations,” says Ms. Rodas. “I take care of every property the way I’d take care of my own.”

To further differentiate itself from its competition, Construction Clean-up by Gabi uses environmentally-friendly cleaning products that are designed to deep-clean without adding chemicals to living spaces. “I use natural cleaning products whenever possible, but if a stronger solution is needed, I always take my customers’ preferences and health into account,” explains Ms. Rodas. “I show them the cleaning products I use and ask if they’re allergic to any specific chemicals before any work begins, which they really appreciate.”

Industry Info

A remodeling project can leave you with a beautiful new home—and a lot of construction dust.

If you’re planning a remodeling project, you probably picture the finished product: more space, better lighting, updated features and a comfortable feel. However, it’s also important to plan for the dust, debris and overall mess the project will leave in its wake.

The dust generated by construction work can be more disruptive than people think—in addition to getting lodged in hard-to-reach places, it can damage possessions and cause allergic reactions. So, how can you prevent construction dust from damaging your home or belongings?

Experts recommend preparing for a remodeling project by removing as many items as possible from the construction area before work begins. Whether you store the items in a sealed-off room, garage, storage unit or pod, the more items you remove from your home, the easier the cleanup will be and the less likely your belongings will be damaged or covered in dust. This is especially true for family heirlooms, antiques, books and photos.

Asking your contractor to put plastic around the work area and use vacuum systems can help mitigate dust, but it’s not a surefire tactic. No matter what steps you take before and during construction, it’s smart to hire a construction cleaning company to remove dust and debris after the work is complete and before you move your belongings back into the space.

“Homes that have been under construction can have a lot of leftover metal fragments and dust, both of which are difficult to remove and can cause people to get sick,” says Gabi Rodas, owner of Construction Clean-up by Gabi, Inc. in San Rafael. “I recommend hiring a cleaning company that specializes in construction cleaning. You need someone who is skilled and experienced in the specific cleaning methods that are needed to remove construction dust.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can you give me a price quote over the phone?
A: No. Every job is unique, so I prepare a bid for each client based on their specific job. My clients trust me to explain my services and give them a fair price.

Q: Will you use chemicals in my home?
A: I don’t use harsh chemicals unless it’s absolutely necessary. When I do a deep cleaning, I’ll talk to the customer and ask if they’re allergic to any cleaning products, and then I’ll show them what I’m going to use to complete the job.

Q: Do I need to sign a contract or will you do a one-time cleaning?
A: I don’t require contracts for my work. I can provide one-time cleaning services or regular cleaning services depending on what you need.

Q: Can I trust you in my home when I’m not there?
A: Yes, I have many clients who trust me to clean their homes while they’re not there. I’ve gained their trust and they feel comfortable giving me their keys and alarm codes. Some of my clients even leave for months and hire me to maintain their homes while they’re gone.

Gabi Rodas: A Helping Heart

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

SAN RAFAEL — Gabi Rodas has always had a heart for helping others, so it only made sense for her to find a profession that allowed her to do just that. “My work isn’t just about making money, it’s about caring for others, which is very important to me,” she affirms. “After coming to the United States from Guatemala at the age of 17, I got my first job as a house cleaner, which I did for several years. Eventually, I decided to start my own business—something that would utilize my work experience but also allow me to make a positive impact. When I looked into the construction clean-up industry, I could tell it was just the opportunity I’d been looking for.”

Today, as owner of Construction Clean-up by Gabi, Inc., Gabi says her favorite part of her job is creating healthy living spaces. “Construction work produces a lot of dust and other contaminants that can cause health problems for the home’s inhabitants. Whenever I’m cleaning a newly built or remodeled home, I’m thinking of the people who are going to be living there, and that motivates me to do the best job I can. It’s very rewarding to know my work helps keep families safe and healthy in their homes.”

A resident of San Rafael (where she lives with her husband and three children), Gabi devotes much of her free time to serving her community. “I like helping those in need, especially senior citizens who have trouble keeping up with household tasks,” she says. “Sometimes I’ll deliver food to them or help them clean their homes.” When she’s not volunteering her services, Gabi enjoys spending time with her family. “I love coming home to my family after work and spending time together on the weekends. Sometimes we’ll take little trips—for example, in the winter, we go to Reno to play in the snow, and in the summer we go camping.”

In her life and career, Gabi attributes her altruistic impulse to her first-hand experience with poverty and opportunity. “Growing up in Guatemala, my family was very poor, so life was a constant struggle for survival,” she recounts. “When I came to the U.S., I was blessed to make many friends and be surrounded by good people who helped me succeed. I think that’s why I feel so passionate about helping others—not only do I know what it’s like to be in need, I know how life-changing help can be.”

When asked the first thing she’d do if she were to retire tomorrow, Gabi says she’d stay dedicated to helping others. “I have a dream of opening a small school where young people can learn about important things like health and life skills. I’d also like to write a book about my life, with the hope of inspiring others. Additionally, I plan to someday return to Guatemala and get involved in improving living conditions and educational opportunities for young people.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: Coffee or tea?
A: Tea.

Q: What’s your favorite holiday?
A: New Year’s Day. To me, the New Year represents a fresh start with new opportunities, and that makes me excited.

Q: Do you collect anything?
A: No. I’d rather share what I have and give things away.

Q: If you could travel anywhere you haven’t yet visited, where would you go?
A: Actually, I’d like to see more of the United States.

  • The Advantage of a Construction Clean-up Specialist

    SAN RAFAEL — Remodeling your home can create a beautiful space, but it can also create a lot of dust in the process. Even when preventative measures are taken (such as putting up plastic barriers and using vacuum-equipped machinery), it’s impossible to totally arrest dust, which has a tendency to accumulate on surfaces and invade every available crevice and alcove. While a construction company will typically perform a cursory cleaning before showing a remodeled space to a client, the amount of dust that remains hidden from sight can be significant.

    Even if it can’t be seen, residual dust from remodeling can have conspicuous consequences. In particular, dust can cause health problems for the home’s inhabitants, such as allergic reactions and asthma flare-ups. And it isn’t just wood dust—remodeling sites frequently contain metal dust as well, which can cause harmful effects when inhaled and leave fine scratches on household items. All told, neglecting to clean a newly remodeled space can leave the homeowners vulnerable to a wide range of health risks.

    To avoid these risks, consider hiring a construction clean-up specialist to follow up your recent or upcoming remodeling project. Its crew will scour your remodeled space with meticulous precision, cleaning in spots you may not have even thought of, such as inside your air duct registers. After the substantial investment of remodeling your home, this additional measure will bring you priceless peace of mind.
