CLEARANCE DATE: 6th November 2012
PROPERTY LOCATION: Winchmore Hill, Winchmore, London, N21
CLEARANCE TYPE: Full house clearance and deep clean
PROPERTY TYPE: 5-bedroom house
We were called by an estate agent based in Winchmore Hill in London who had was in charge of preparing a property to rent to tenants on behalf of the owner. The semi-detached house had five bedrooms, but had been slightly neglected over the years and was in need of a thorough clearance and deep clean to bring it up to the necessary standard to rent out.
We met the estate agent at 8.00am and he gave us the keys to the property, after which we began work immediately. The first thing that we noticed was that it had indeed been neglected over the years, and many of the rooms had been affected by damp and mould. This meant that most of the furniture and effects had also been damaged. We started to remove everything from the living room, working quickly and as a team to remove the heavier items like the large oak dining table. The TV still worked, so we made sure we put that to one side, and we also made a note of the items that were still in a good enough condition to be reused. We moved through the entire house, clearing as we went. We cleared out the entire kitchen, including all of the white goods and the remains of some items that had been left in the fridge. We also cleared the bedrooms and packed up all of the personal effects like clothes and books. After removing the carpets, we cleaned the house throughout. It took a few hours to clean every single corner, but we were determined to leave it looking excellent. When we had finished, the estate agent returned to review the property and confirmed that he was happy.
Disposal of Contents
Much of the furniture and the contents from the clearance was not in a suitable condition to be reused, so we recycled what we could to reduce the amount that we had to send to landfill. However, we did manage to donate some of the furniture to a charity shop, along with the TV and most of the books and CDs that we came across.
Our client checked the property after the clearance and could not find anything wrong with the job. He confirmed that he would add us to his list of contractors for future house clearances, and we look forward to working with him again.
