All you can do it use your experience. Anyway, we assembled the team to take on this challenge and soon got stuck in. As predicted, once we managed to get through the jungle of brambles, we soon found just about every form of junk and waste imaginable.
Disturbingly, we also found evidence of potential drug paraphernalia so this job took a more sinister and potentially dangerous turn. At the first possible sign of anything even remotely like needles, syringes or medical waste, we implement a biohazard warning procedure, which is designed to protect our staff and our clients from any form of danger.
It also means that our normal processes employed must change to reflect this new hazard. Only when we are happy that every form of danger or hazard has been cleared up can normal working begin once more.
After a thorough search, Steve, our Ops Director, confirmed that the danger had been neutralised, so back to work. As it turned out, it appears the tenants had an elderly parent who had to have some medical procedures, so colostomy bags and catheters and a few old syringes were found but no needles, dumped with the rest of their rubbish in the garden!
Unexpected things like this do add cost and delay to jobs, but the safety of our staff, other trades working on this site and our clients is paramount, so whilst rare, these things happen, turning a simple job into a complex one.
With a crack team on site, it does not take much time to get things looking good, so with the jungle cleared, the rubbish and other junk safely removed to the skips, it actually looked like a garden once more. A close cut of the grass, trimming the over grown hedges to a manageable size and trimming off overhanging and overgrown branches soon had this back to normal.
The best part of all this as we still managed to contain the budgets, return the building back to good condition and clear all rubbish on time as well, so the client was delighted to get this property back on the market in double quick time.
