Lockdown has meant that people have gone unnoticed. Single, living alone, and with the onset of dementia, this problem had gone unnoticed all year. This client was regularly being phoned by family and friends to make sure she was OK, but the problem only showed up when a neighbour insisted on entry.During the pandemic, people have been noticing problems with neighbours, or people with problems have been home more and their problems have grown exponentially. Never be scared to check! ...

A tenant decided to change the regulator on a camping stove, and connect a 13kg gas bottle to it to cook. Luckily they got out unscathed before it went completely wrong. Our remit was to clear all items from the property to off-site disposal. ...

Alfie says "say no to drugs, kids!"Poor attempt at a new company ambassador. He promptly walked off in dis-interest straight after I took the photo.But seriously, another years worth of needles collected from properties we've worked in. Property clearance is just one aspect of our business, and we're regularly called to deal with properties with a background of drug use. It's completely different from a standard clearance. With systematic picking, checking and bagging, it's mentally exhausting having to concentrate on where you put your hands, feet, knees, and being fully aware of your surroundings. ...

Stanyer Cleaning Services Ltd
Something different from what has become the norm! Throughout the pandemic, work has changed. So many people with problems have kept hidden, flying below the radar. But since lockdown, they all seem to be popping up and appearing. We can only put this down to neighbours being home becoming aware of, and reporting problems. Or that peoples mental health has deteriorated, and has grown their issues exponentially.So for a change, we were privileged to be involved in the completion works at the UHI Dornoch college, formally the burghfield house hotel. The original hotel (which the boss of stanyer cleaning services, and his wife were married at in 2000!), was bought by UHI to develop into a catering college, and has been successfully operating for a few years now.But the recent extension, which is now housing the college's golf training section, is now complete, and ready for occupancy! Big, airy and light rooms have been built, including a large training area that is fully digital to train for golf swing and putting technique.Although completely different techniques are used by our staff in a project like this, the same level of quality and detail is at the forefront. With such a modern building, access and ease of cleaning usually takes second place to style! But a bit of planning, full RAMS assessment (risk assessment and method statements) and a bit of imagination, can make sure we do the job correctly ...

Sometimes, you've just got to rip it out and start again!We were contracted to do a 'light clean' after a 'minor' sewage leak. The landlord hadn't actually seen the condition of the property before instructing us. Upon arrival, we found there had been a 'minor' sewage leak, but with the poor condition of the property and the length of time the leak had been left, the bathroom had to be gutted and sanitised.One thing we've learnt in over 20 years of experience, is that you never take someone's word as gospel (everyone has a different view of how dirty dirty really is!), and secondly, always ready to adapt. ...
