Constructionline have also aligned their pre-qualification questionnaire with the government mandated PAS 91 system.  [Developed as an industry solution by the British Standards Institute (BSI) to alleviate the administration burden, PAS 91 provides a standardised set of stage one assessment questions to be issued to suppliers when they wish to enter your supply chain.]

Pressure Washing for End of Tenancy Clean

20161115_pressure-washing-side-apmThe team were tasked to pressure wash the side of a large property in Gosforth.  On this occasion the cleaning was part of an End of Tenancy clean but our client was so delighted with the results she has asked us to clean her new home in the next street!

Cleaning the path not only restored the area to as new condition, but it also removed mossy growth which can be extremely slippy and a definite Health and Safety issue!

Please excuse the free marketing picture; team getting a little artistic and definitely not the finished article…..

fridge-freezer-1_rotten-food-2-20160824We are equipped to tackle even the most challenging of circumstances.fridge-freezer-1_rotten-food-1-20160824

This fridge freezer had been switched off by the tenants who had forgotten to empty their food before doing so.  Unfortunately the food had been left for quite some time and started to decompose to such an extent that liquid started leaking out of the fridge onto the kitchen floor.

The Landlord called us because he couldn’t stomach the smell which had filled the entire house.  Once the team were dressed in PPE the decomposing food was removed safely into waterproof sealed bags using plastic shovels and the fridge was cleaned out and treated with antibacterial disinfectant.

The Landlord was delighted that he didn’t have to replace his fridge freezer and his property smelled fresh and ready for marketing.

Carpet Cleaning Student Accommodation

Going, going, gone.  Particularly nasty stain at a very busy inner city student accommodation block.  To remove the stain, which was claimed to have been there for a couple of months (why not call us earlier?!), took some effort; stain remover application, pre-spray treatment and three passes with hot wash extraction carpet cleaner using tried, tested and endorsed WoolSafe products.  Great result – customer delighted

Landlord’s Nightmare

Being a Landlord can be a tricky business.  We were recently contacted by an experienced Landlord with a property in Jesmond, who due to business commitments had been unable to complete a thorough post tenancy inspection.  He had taken the word of his letting agent that the property was in a good state of repair and returned the full bond back to his tenants.  Unfortunately when he looked to re-let his property there was a considerable amount of damage to inventory items and also a significant amount of cleaning and rubbish removal required.

The good news is that APM Cleaning Ltd came to the rescue and restored his property to a lettable condition; unfortunately this left the Landlord £100s out of pocket – funds that should have been deducted from the bond.

Determined that he would not be caught out again, the Landlord has instructed APM Cleaning to complete a full care package; move-in inspection plus video and report, midterm and pre move-out inspection, cleaning, rubbish removal and inventory check on move out, move-out inspection, video and report to be used as necessary for TDS challenges on bond deductions.

Air BnB and Meet & Greet

mg-bed-2Since early summer this year we have mg-front-room
been offering a service to support Landlords using Air BnB (there are other online letting agents!).  Our Landlord clients are now into double figures and we have serviced over 300 flats and properties over the last few months.  Things have really taken off (excuse the pun).

We have had several requests ranging from an initial meet and greet, full hotel service (provision of and change of bedding linen and towelling, supply of tea, coffee, bespoke welcome packs), collection of funds and disposal of rubbish and cleaning at the end of the stay.
