CLEARANCE DATE: 23rd October 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Norroy Road, Putney, London, SW15
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full house clearance and clean
PROPERTY TYPE: 3-Bedroom-House
Our client contacted us to arrange the clearance of a terraced house on Norroy Road in Putney, London, SW15. It was an attractive period property, but it had been occupied for many years by a compulsive hoarder. Now there was a large collection of clutter inside that required clearing, and our client also asked us to provide a complete deep clean of the property.
On-street parking was available so we were able to park outside the front door of the property when we arrived at 7.00am. Once we entered the property it was clear just what a huge job this was going to be, but we are not daunted by such tasks as we have performed many similar clearances in the past.
There were so many items inside the property that it was hard to even get through to see the different rooms. We had to be very careful with our safety because items can fall down and cause injury in such conditions.
We cleared out the living room, the kitchen and the downstairs bedroom on the first day. It took us an entire day to clear the ground floor because there were so many things to remove. All kinds of artefacts, from old newspapers to wooden chairs to rusting cans, were found inside the collection, so we removed everything we could and then returned the following day.
The next day we cleared the upstairs rooms, and by midday the entire property was empty. We then removed the carpets and underlay, and then cleaned the property throughout. By the end of the second day, the property looked like it had never been inhabited by a compulsive hoarder.
Disposal of Contents
We always try to reuse as many things as we can when we clear a property. However, in this case the amount of furniture and effects that were in a reusable condition was minimal, as often happens with compulsive hoarding. Still, we managed to salvage some items of furniture, and a large proportion of the contents was recyclable so that helped us to minimise the waste as much as possible.
Our client was amazed at the difference that we made to the property in the space of just two days and he highly recommended our services.
