Alnwick, Northumberland Domestic House Cleaning Case Study
This week the owners of a mansion in Alnwick contacted us, to ask us if we could give their property a spring clean. They told us that the house was extensive, with eleven bedrooms, six bathrooms and several rooms for entertaining, and though it wasn’t very dirty, it was hard for them to keep on top of the cleaning all year round, so each of the rooms needed a good dusting, vacuuming and general polishing, and all of the windows needed to be cleaned on the inside. We arrived at the property first thing in the morning, so that we could get started straight away on the work at hand. As our customers had described, the mansion was extensive so there was plenty for us to get through.
We decided to begin by cleaning and polishing all of the windows, before moving onto the six bathrooms that were scattered throughout the property. The bathrooms were all in a generally good condition, other than the usual limescale, stray hairs and toothpaste marks that you find in most people’s bathrooms. Our team was therefore able to get through all of the bathrooms very quickly, which included vacuuming and mopping all of the wooden and linoleum floors. Once the bathrooms were finished with, we moved onto the large kitchen and pantry that was located in the basement of the property. This was a huge space with two double ranges, a lot of work surfaces and a large flagstone floor.
Both of the ranges needed to be cleaned out and scrubbed, while the flagstone floor had to be swept and mopped. The surfaces were all in a generally clean condition, but we still wiped and disinfected all of them to bring them up to a high standard of cleanliness and kill off any germs that might have been lurking on them. The kitchen was the largest of the rooms in the house, but many of the bedrooms were also very large and needed to be thoroughly cleaned, swept and dusted.
There were also large fireplaces throughout the property which needed to be swept, scrubbed and polished to bring them up to a good shine, as well as many brass door handles and fixtures and fittings that needed to be polished. Our team is very experienced in caring for metal objects like this though and we were able to leave all of the metal work in the house gleaming.
Once we had scrubbed and polished everything in the bedrooms and cleaned all of the windows, all that was left for us to do was to clean the communal rooms, including the dining room, living room and two study rooms. Once again, these included fireplaces and also large wooden tables and desks that needed to be polished with specialist wax polish in order to protect the wood from harm. Once we had cleaned all of these communal rooms, our work was done and we were able to leave feeling very satisfied with what we had managed to achieve for our customers.
