Undertaking the clean up and removal of drug paraphernalia and other bio-hazard materials poses a serious risk to those undertaking the works, this task should only be undertaken by persons experienced in handling hazardous materials and suitably trained.
Drugs and other associated paraphernalia can be found in a wide range of locations; empty premises, communal areas, parks and sheltered locations are prime for drug abuse.
Our professional operatives specialise in the safe removal and disposal of needles, sharps and other infected items, our experts are fully protected when undertaking such work and comply with current legislation and best practice.
We will ensure areas are left safe and clean preventing the risk from accidental skin laceration posed by drug paraphernalia.
A hoarding disorder is where someone acquires an excessive number of items and stores them in a chaotic manner, usually resulting in unmanageable amounts of clutter. The items can be of little or no monetary value.
Hoarding disorders are challenging for social landlords as many tenants who hoard may also be breaching their tenancy agreement. They also frequently do not see it as a problem, or have little awareness of how it’s affecting their life or the lives of others. If they do realise they may have a hoarding disorder, they are often reluctant to seek help because they feel extremely ashamed, humiliated or guilty about it.
Sadly, we are being asked by councils and housing associations to visit more and more hoarding disorder cleaning jobs recently. It is becoming a common job for our Gwella team, so we are never easily shocked and approach each and every job without prejudice and provide a thorough cleaning service throughout.
