Our vacant property cleaning and waste removal services will restore your commercial or residential premises to a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene safely and quickly. Our trained teams are experienced in carrying out biohazard deep cleans and removing all waste safely, so your property can be brought back into use precisely when you need.
Empty properties can present some of the biggest cleaning challenges. SafeGroup’s void property cleaning and waste removal service is designed to overcome these challenges so premises can be made ready for re-use.
Void properties may contain biohazards, such as human waste, drugs paraphernalia and even dead animals. They can be infested by pests, such as mice, rats and pigeons.
Buildings that have been left empty for a long time can deteriorate or be vandalised, causing potentially dangerous structural problems or water, gas or electricity hazards.
Hazardous waste may have been left or illegally dumped in vacant properties, such as chemicals or equipment, that also pose specific risks, so must be handled with extreme care.
As an emergency specialist cleaning and waste company, SafeGroup has the expertise and experience to manage these risks, cleaning void properties to a high standard in compliance with health and safety regulations.
SafeGroup carried out empty property cleaning for a wide range of clients, including social landlords, estate and letting agents, manufacturers, social service agencies, property developers and construction contractors.
We can clean a void property as a one-off project or as part of a contracted service, so you always have access to a fast and efficient empty property cleaning specialist when and where you need them, anywhere in the UK.
SafeGroup can provide a void and empty property cleaning and disinfection service no matter what kind of building of cleaning challenge is involved.

Our property waste clearance service is designed to be highly sustainable and managed in accordance with all waste regulations. Over 90% of all waste we collect is recycled or reused, rather than being sent to landfill.
Before we start work on any property clearance, we carry out a risk assessment to ensure our customers, our teams and all others are safe, and that the environment cannot be harmed by the waste we carry.
Our teams are regularly called in to clean commercial and residential buildings after they have been occupied by squatters.
This has to involve significant care. In some cases, water supplies are cut off which increases the risk of the presence of biohazards, including human faeces and urine. There may also be rotten food and gas cannisters used for cooking and heating.
Another key concern is hypodermic needles left by drug users. SafeGroup is highly experienced at carrying out sharps removals. Our teams sweep sites with great care, wearing the appropriate protective clothing, to find needles and other drug-related items and disposing of them safely.
As part of our service we can help customers secure properties against further entry from squatters or intruders.
We can ensure all doorways and windows are secured, and boarded up if necessary. We can also improve or install appropriate fencing, reducing the risk of break-ins or vandalism.
Tips on securing an empty property:
SafeGroup provides a service for social and private landlords to clean properties after the eviction of tenants. This may involve the safe and sensitive removal of furniture and other items.
In some cases, properties many have been deliberately damaged or sabotaged. These risks are accounted for in our risk assessment and method statement (RAMS). Our cleaning teams are always alert to them as they carry out the work.
We are also experienced at handling property clearances sensitively, especially if a person who has been evicted, or their neighbours and friends, are present and may be upset by the action taken.
Void buildings are more susceptible to certain pests, including mice, rats and pigeons. They carry pathogens that are potentially harmful to humans. Pigeon guano is a slip hazard as well as a biohazard. Pest activity can also significantly damage building fabric.
SafeGroup’s pest solutions team support our specialist cleaners in dealing with pests in vacant properties quickly legally, including installing pest proofing measures. This will ensure your property is protected against further pest problems.
