Sanitising Carpets in Clevedon, Somerset

Carpet Cleaning in Clevedon – Sanitising Pet Dirt

We were recommended by a friend to do a carpet cleaning job in Cleavdon. It is alway nice to get a word of mouth recommendation. The job was for a bungalow that had already had a thorough general clean but the carpets were well and truly soiled with pet dirt on the surface and filthy because of heavy foot traffic.

Child and Pet Safe Cleaning Solutions

We use the most advanced and up to date carpet cleaning technology to deep clean stubborn mess that vacuuming alone will not resolve. Our cleaning solutions are child and pet safe and leave your carpet sanitised and pleasant smelling. We sanitised and deodorised the carpets plus a double clean through to get exceedingly great results that both the client and ourselves were happy with.

It’s our job to ensure outstanding cleaning results with out unique truck mounted mobile equipment, this is how we receive word of mouth recommendations from clients and friends alike.

Extreme Deep Cleaning Somerset Hoarder Cluttering

There has been an upsurge recently in the amount of enquiries we are getting from landlords and property owners for help at the end of a tenancy. In some cases the tenant will have little disregard for the property as a whole, often deliberately leaving clutter and mess throughout the home. Of course, this is upsetting for property owners to see their rented accommodation treated with little respect – and this is where we come in.

We have a specifically trained extreme clean team who are well versed in all aspects of hoarder situations – whatever the reason for the build up of rubbish, mess and leftiver food, we are here to help.

Should you feel you are in a smiliar situation you can be reassured all of our cases are treated with dignity and discretion. Please do get in touch with Andy to discuss your options today.

Hoarder Video – Before and After Photos from a Somerset Property

Hoarding is a mental illness can sometimes be attributed to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) which is often unnoticed by the individual doing it therefore likely the condition is undiagnosed and therefore not treated by a medical professional. OCD hoarding ranges from simply refusing to throw away any household rubbish, cardboard boxes and carrier bags to “caring for lots of cats and dogs”. This can be compared in the same way as tourists collect souveniers for memories to the more extreme cases of not throwing anyting out including human waste.

It’s a broad statement but it’s been observed that no 2 hoarders are idential – it not only affects the day to day lives of the hoarder but quite often times their landlord, family members or property business owner finally discover upon vacation they are left to resolve these situations.

Rolling Skips for Hoarder Deep Clean Ups and Team Extreme Cleans

Here at CrawfordsPRC we have great local connections with several skip companies who provide a rolling skip service; essentially they are left for a short amount of time (say, 30 minutes) and they are filled by the cleaning team and the skip taken back to the depot to be emptied – whilst in the meantime another skip is scheduled. It’s definitely hard work and extremely time consuming and not everyone has the physical strength or energy/time to deal with situations like these. Yet another option to consider hiring a professional extreme cleaning company in Somerset where hoarding is a problem – we encounter rhodents (both alive and dead!), many insects, bugs and a range of other pests that may have taken up residence in a property.

Hoarder Extreme Deep Cleaning Services in Bristol and Somerset

The task of cleaning such an area can be challenging and often impossible for an individual untrained in decontamination and odour removal. In addition, there are several legal requirements which need to be adhered to whencleaning safely eliminating/disposing of certain biohazards such as blood, body fluids and human excretion.

Rest assured that the team here at CrawfordsPRC have over 20 year’s experience, plus professional training with NCCA and IICRC and utilise our superior grade professional tools and chemicals to eliminate all potential hazards and rubbish waste from properties in the Bristol and Somerset areas.

An extreme clean hoarding project should not be treated as a standard cleaning contract, all too often much much more than meets the eye when hidden underneath piles of rubbish, clutter and accumulated junk/storage boxes.

Somerset Hoarder Clean Up

Hoarder Cleaning Services Somerset

We have had over 7 years experience with handling the sensitive nature of hoarder property cleanups and restoration. Some mental issues include the feeling of not being able to release, and don’t like to throw things away. Often this is coupled with a restricted access in their garden to the bins or to hire a skip. Crawfordsprc respect each and every job requirement and provide high levels of dignity whilst cleaning a property.

Other reasons include situations whereby a lady was no longer mobile and was unable to pick up dropped items onto the floor around her property. Whilst it could be considered awful, working with less able people who drop coffee, soup or other food items it’s impossible to clean without help.

Steps to cleaning this project and recycling of waste

  • Somerset based rented property
  • This took 5 people 2 working days
  • Two van loads of waste materials to be recycled with the local waste company Towens

We are called in by different agencies which could include the reasons because a client has had a fall and the Emergency Services have highlighted the situation. Also it could be because a person is in hospital and it’s not safe to release and return home without a clean toi ensure safety and optimum healthy limits.

Hoarder Cleanup

There’s not a lot to say about this project as it’s obvious what work we had to carry out from years of hoarding. This was at a local property in Weston-super-Mare and we were called in by the Landlord to clean from top to bottom.

End of Tenancy Extreme Deep Clean Somerset Property Landlords

Extreme Deep Clean Somerset End of Tenancy Property Cleaning

Here at Crawfords we are continuing to help people in their homes to start afresh or reduce the impact of waste and collected items cluttering the rooms due to ill health or a mind set that stops the owner or tenant from being able to clean these areas for them selves.

End of Tenancy Property Cleaning with Dignity

We sympathise with clients that have fallen at home through bad hips, knees, backs etc and are unable to pick up items that fall to the floor and are not retrievable at that time. We are not judgemental and are here to help.

Most of our clients wish to have a fresh start and just need a clean sweep of rooms to bring them back to some sort of manageable state, others decide enough is enough and reduce room clutter by throwing out the unwanted items for more freedom in the home, whichever and for whatever reason we are here to help.

The latest Upholstery cleans have beef quite challenging and the results to date are excellent as you can see from our pictures:

Dirty Old Sofas Given New Life

The dirtier the better is not always the best results as fabric type is the key factor.

We don’t shy away from the dirty ones which we have inspected initially for a free quotation. More and more clients are asking for costings before we see how dirty they are and the depth of cleans required which is no good to us as it can take from 2-5 hours to clean a suite and we charge according so that the client is happy with the costings and has a good idea of what to expect afterwards

Cost vs Quality

Do be aware when upholstery cleaning companies offer very low costs as they are using cheap and harmful fluids – and in some cases – only clean an area once regardless of dirtiness as time is money to them.

Results and client satisfaction along with managing expectations Andy & Karon at Crawfords want you to be happy with the finished results not just feel it’s ok like other companies have done (as our clients tell us!).

Influencers like Mrs Hinch, who to date has 1.4 million Instagram followers, have somehow managed to glamorise typically mundane tasks.

And as they continue to post cleaning demonstrations using their favourite cleaning products and tools, retailers have noticed a dramatic increase in cleaning product sales across the UK.

Sophie Hinchliffe – known as “Mrs Hinch” – has been “overwhelmed” by the success of her quirky “stories”.

Since she joined the site in March, thousands of people have become members of the “Hinch Army”, even helping get the account back online after it was hacked.

The 28-year-old, from Maldon, Essex, has now upped her online security.

Mrs Hinchliffe said her “stomach was in a knot” when she couldn’t get in to her @MrsHinchHome_X_ Instagram profile on Wednesday, but her fans pulled together to sort it out “within hours”.

She added: “I had so many shares and tweets about it – the Army just pulled together.

“I had messages saying that if I had to close my account, they would follow me wherever I went. It made my heart melt.”

Mrs Hinchliffe, who cleans for at least 30 minutes a day, has dubbed her cleaning cupboard “Narnia” and names her favourite cleaning products.

ned a new term for cleaning – “Hinching”.

The hairdresser said: “This all came out of me having fun with cleaning.

“It sounds cheesy but it’s something everyone has to do so you might as well enjoy it.

Image copyright Sophie Hinchliffe
Image caption Pictures of Mrs Hinchliffe’s stylish home also have proved to be an Instagram hit – mainly, she believes, because everything in it can be bought from high street stores.

“Cleaning helps me relax and I’ve had so many amazing messages from people saying I’ve changed their life or helped them with their mental health.

“It’s physically impossible for me to reply to everyone but the messages means so much.

“Without the Hinch Army, I wouldn’t be where I am. They’re part of my journey.”


 

Lorna McDonald, store manager of B&M on Bangor’s Main Street, told BBC News NI: “We’ve noticed there are a lot of younger people coming in and buying cleaning products, but there has been a rise in general in recent months.

“If you’ve got a following like Mrs Hinch on Instagram, we have to be prepared and have the products that are recommended if we want to increase our sales, especially as the high street is a bit dead at the moment.”

Minky, an online company that produces cleaning equipment noticed a sharp rise in sales after Mrs Hinch endorsed one of their products in unpaid Instagram posts.

They told BBC News NI: “We’ve seen a 10,000% increase in demand from consumers since the end of June this year and an exponential increase in demand from retailers, with no signs of slowing.

“In fact, demand has been so high that stock is selling out as quickly as it goes on sale.”

Easho, a wholesale website for household products who are in paid partnership with Mrs Hinch, says that the cleaning craze has helped their sales.

“We are now seeing the equivalent of ‘The Delia Effect’ on cleaning products, with growth of up to 200% on some of the most recommended items,” said a spokesperson.

As well as internet retailers, high street shops have also noticed a higher footfall of customers with cleaning products in their baskets.

‘Tidy home, tidy mind’

Katie Colwell, from Donaghadee in County Down, says cleaning has become “one of my friend group’s most common topics of conversation”.

And it’s all because of social media.

The 27-year-old nurse told BBC News NI: “Embarrassingly, I spend hours watching social media influencers cleaning.

“Among my friends, we talk about which products we have all tried and whether we rate them or not and what tips we have picked up from different social media influencers.

“I am guilty of running to the nearest pound shop to grab the products which I have seen on Instagram to try myself, which has meant I now have enough disinfectant to mop eight football pitches and have them smelling of fresh linen or cranberry and orange.”

But Miss Colwell says her fiancée isn’t convinced by the new hobby.

“He thinks I’m bonkers when I come home, excited to try out my newest cloth or cleaning product, and spend hours cleaning on my days off, but I find it therapeutic and a good way to de-stress,” she said.

“A tidy home is a tidy mind.”

Richard Hopping, an analyst for market research agency Mintel, told BBC News NI: “Our data shows that 39% of cleaners feel stressed when their homes aren’t clean, so promoting the benefits to mental wellbeing through cleaning could be a real factor in why influencers and cleaning are proving so popular.”

Detergent spraying on window

@thesecretcleaner is an anonymous Instagram account who posts regular cleaning tips and has nearly 10,000 followers.

They believe that for many people the online cleaning world provides a “virtual community” for people who may feel isolated.

“When I started the account, I wasn’t working and I found that cleaning kept me sane, kept me going.

“For me, cleaning is a type of mindfulness. You’re focussing on one thing, you’re in the moment and you feel like you have achieved something.

“You have people who support you and don’t think you’re weird for posting videos of you cleaning! It’s a hobby!”

‘Instagrammable’

But like many things on social media, trends tend to come and go, and some predict the cleaning phenomenon may not stand the test of time.

Niamh Taylor, director of Northern Ireland digital marketing agency Digital 24, said: “Some people have a problem with the amount of chemicals and plastic used to keep people’s home squeaky clean.

“Others just do not get why you’d want to watch someone polishing their sink and putting clothes away every night.”

She added: “I don’t think this phenomenon will be as popular throughout 2019 as realistically, Insta-trends are short lived and cleaning is just not ‘Instagrammable’.”

Bristol Chain Smoker Happy With Cleaning

Smoke and Tar Ladened Property Gets Facelift

We were called to this property which, over many years, had the by effects of smoking cigarettes without adequate ventilation, opening windows, etc. This also means it’s very hard for visitors due to the fumes or even little things like handling food or wiping down surfaces.

We washed the walls in placed, for example in the stairway.

Everything is by hand, from degreasing the windows to wiping the doors and door frames. This has to be completed in advance of steam cleaning the carpets to ensure all dirt falls onto the carpet ready for us to clean.

  • Two full days of work for this single bedroom flat
  • Three people to tackle the project
  • All waste safely removed from site
