Extreme Cleaning Services Somerset – Assisting Family
We have combined over 30 years’ experience in carpet cleaning, home and domestic house extreme cleaning, end of tenancy landlords one-off steam cleaning property projects. It’s more common than you can imagine for families to approach us on behalf of another family member who is struggling in a variety of ways.
Signs to recognise a family member needs help
Unable or unwilling to leave the house – Sedentary lifestyle, tends to stay in one spot, often in a favourite chair or sofa
Limited mobility capacity resulting in inadequate cleaning, this can result in a kitchen build up of old food, takeaway containers, carrier bags and unwashed pots pans and sink/counters
Loss of muscle strength making bending over to clean a challenge – resulting in poor bathroom and toilet sanitisation, a build up of scum and grease over years
Inability to leave the house to take out rubbish, with a consequence of unavoidable hoarding of rubbish and a build up of delivered letters and magazines
Overall poor health which would decline further should considerable actions not be taken due to the build up of bacteria in an environment without the flow of fresh air
Disposal of 3 Tons of Newspaper and Home Furnishings
Our reputation for handling such cases with dignity, care and compassion leads to a steady stream of word of mouth recommendations.
We were contacted to clean a property that has over 3 tons of magazines and newspapers in so that the lounge in a very very poor state. We understood that the owners would be both pleased to re use the room as a bedroom as going upstairs is now very challenging, however it was critical that some collected items are of personal interest and hold real value to them.
Family Tip – Construct A Team Plan and Script – Tackle ASAP
Under supervision of other family members we stood to the script devised and supplied a room now usable and clean. The team plan was to execute a bulk load of work and tasks in the shortest time as possible to minimise emotional distress with such a large amount of change.
We tackled a multitude of cleaning tasks including: The disposal, cleaning and replacement of window nets & curtains. Our team arranged the installation of new beds and bedding to demonstrate a clean sleeping environment in the home.
The pan was executed flawlessly, a qualified electrician was booked to carry out lighting and socket repairs. There was also the removal of the old cooker and a replacement cooker was installed together with washing machines and a tumble drier. Our efforts demonstrated that even the dirtiest place can be turned around an renovated in good time.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Any waste we remove is disposed of through a local recycling centre and as we have a waste carriers licence we ensure all is disposed of legally, respectfully and responsibly.

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!).
Please let us see what is required on a clean not just guess in the dark, 01934 513862 call/text us your postcode and location for a free, no obligation on-site visit.

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.
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.”
@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!”
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’.”
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.
