A Decorating Challenge!
We were recently contacted by a new client to visit a bungalow and asked for a quotation to clean a property which in their words had a “bit” of mould. We arranged to meet the client and they showed us around to inspect the property, we were both shocked to see the condition of the property as they hadn’t inspected it since the tenant had moved out. Once we inspected it with the owner we knew our Landlord Decorating Services would be required, this is what we found:
Deep Clean & Mould Treatment
The client agreed it was beyond cleaning and required a full redecoration throughout. Once authorisation was given we started with a deep clean by removing all the dust and grime from the surfaces, then treated all the mould to the walls and ceiling with a Zinseer Mould Killer & Remover. Once the mould was removed and the areas dry we then stain blocked the affected areas with several coats of Zinseer Bullseye 123 Stain block, which can be found on our SleepHaven Online Shop.
Painting & Decorating
The bathroom ceiling wallpaper was stripped, then stain blocked numerous times prior to painting with a Dulux Eggshell waterproof paint, then the tiles were cleaned with a turbo brush and a grout a whitener. The walls and ceilings were painted throughout plus the radiators treated with a radiator paint, all existing white woodwork was treated with the same stain block due to smoke and grease damage then painted with a Dulux Satinwood.
Once the decorating was completed we cleaned the carpets, as professional carpet cleaners this was one of the toughest jobs we’ve encountered, however the team came up trumps and did a remarkable job saving the day for the landlord. We used a CRB machine to agitate an Ultrapac Renovate solution prior to using a Hot Water Extraction system to clean the carpets. Not being completely happy we cleaned the carpets a second time to achieve the ultimate result saving the landlord money.
