The cleaning industry is so diverse, but many people don’t know the variety of services that can be offered. The majority of companies advertise domestic or commercial cleaning. The list of services is usually joined by deep cleaning, end of tenancy and carpet cleaning. But what if we told you, there is so much more, you’ve probably never thought about.
Crime Scene Cleaning
Hopefully, you have never witnessed any violent crime or a fatal accident, but if you have, then you know the sight is extremely unpleasant and there is a lot to clean up. Crime scene cleaning is a specialist service that does not require a licence in the UK but cleaners must have undergone specific training before they can complete such jobs. It is certainly not for everyone and those who do that need to be brave and strong mentally, physically and emotionally.
Brick and Wall / Graffiti Cleaning
You wouldn’t naturally think about brick and wall cleaning unless your property has been vandalised. A number of companies offer exterior cleaning services, which revive the look of your house facade, but that’s different from graffiti removal. The latter requires special equipment, products and knowledge.
You may have watched the TV show Hoarders and you know that the amount of clutter in these people’s homes is absolutely insane. It’s not something a regular cleaning team would be able to sort out. Hoard disposal is another specialist service that is not so commonly available on the cleaning market. Those teams of cleaners could be recommended by a counsellor or a psychiatrist who is treating a hoarder.
Extreme cleaning services relate to properties that are in a devastated state. This could be a rented house that was inhabited by incredibly messy tenants, a place wrecked by squatters or drug users. Oftentimes, in these properties there are also bio hazards that have to be handled very carefully. Teams who serve such places also undergo special training and wear PPE.
As a resident in a domestic property you have probably not had to think about COVID fogging service, even if you and your family members contracted the virus. However, if you are the owner of a commercial building, you may have had to resort to a specialist COVID decontamination service at least once. The teams involved in this type of cleaning have been trained to use certain equipment and methods, as well as full personal protective suits and items. The service includes deep cleaning of the premises and then applying steam and virucidal disinfectants that are sprayed over the infected surfaces.
If you live in a shared house you are unlikely to be thinking of hiring a professional domestic cleaner, but if you are the owner of a house in multiple occupation, that could be a great solution. HMOs could be privately-owned properties or governed by the local authorities. In either situation they need professional teams of cleaners to maintain good and healthy conditions for all residents. Cleaning of those properties usually differs from the regular domestic cleaning and not many companies offer it as part of their services.
