I just completed building a new home, and unfortunately, the closer I got to completion the worse the relationship got with the contractor. He ended up walking off the job and one of the contract items left undone was a complete housecleaning. The house has primarily oak floors that were sanded and urethaned early in the finish, then marred, so one of the last jobs he did was to resand and refinish them. The entire interior (painted plaster walls, painted ceilings, painted trim, windows, lights, fans, etc) is covered with a light brown sanding dust. Can anyone recommend an efficient method or products to clean the dust off the various surfaces, especially the walls and ceilings, or do I need to hire a professional cleaning crew? It does not vacuum off, only wipe off.
