Case study: Deep cleaning of a Vacant Property in Devon

How ServiceMaster Clean Devon deep-cleaned a vacant property that was in a less-than-satisfactory state from the previous tenants. 

Preparing a vacant property for the next occupant can sometimes require more than a straightforward cleaning.

If a previous resident has left unwanted contents and potential health hazards, a specialist approach is needed, and that’s where ServiceMaster Clean can help.

Take a look at this recent case study from ServiceMaster Clean Devon to find out more.

What was the issue?

ServiceMaster Clean Devon was appointed by a housing association to conduct a deep cleaning of a house in multiple occupations (HMO) in the Torbay area.

The previous residents had left the home unfit for habitation with dangerous drug paraphernalia throughout the property.

What we did

Over two days, a team of two completed the following:

  • A needle sweep to remove all old used needles and sharps. This included extracting sharps from the pipe work in the sinks, which had been placed down the plug holes.
  • Deep cleaning all surfaces, including internal windows, woodwork, doors, walls and radiators, to remove dust, grime and bodily fluids.
  • Deep cleaning of all kitchen and bathroom areas to leave hygienic and ready for decoration works.
  • Hard floor cleaning to the bathroom areas using alkaline floor cleaning solution and a rotary scrubber to lift all ingrained dirt and staining. The dirt was then extracted with steam extraction equipment to leave the floor clean and hygienic.
  • Carpet cleaning with a heavy-duty carpet shampoo to clean the carpets in all the bedrooms, hallways, stairs and lounges. The carpets were left fresh, hygienic, and with all foul smells removed, ready for the carpet fitters to remove them without the risk of contamination to themselves.

The result

Following the deep clean, we received the following feedback from the client:

“My first impression of the clean was ‘Wow!’. We can’t believe the transformation. As always, your technicians have done an amazing job here, and I am more than pleased with the results.”

“The other cleaning company was cheaper, but I knew I would get the right results with you.”
