Depending on the stage of the construction, you may have much debris to clean up. If you were planning to clean the home before occupying it, then there will be much dust and debris to clean. To start, look for nails and chunks of wood and pick them up by hand.
After removing that, you will need to get rid of the construction dust. You can use a vacuum cleaner to clean the heavy dust, but make sure that you do not sweep at this stage.
The next thing is to wipe down the walls starting at the top corners and moving down from there. After wiping the walls, you will need to vacuum again to remove the dust that was knocked down to the floor from the walls.
To clean wooden surfaces, you can use oil soap and for other surfaces, a damp cloth can be used. The damp cloth will collect all the dust and will not push the dry dust around the home.
