Brand new six-part series Call The Cleaners, premiering on Tuesday 19 Sep at 8.30pm on ITV, ventures into the world of extreme cleaners. From dead body clean-ups to squalid homes and hoarders, nothing fazes these brave grime-busters as they pull on the rubber gloves and tackle some horror homes.
This episode features sisters Yvonne and Angela, who have been extreme cleaners for nearly two decades. They are in London to tackle the dirtiest flat they have ever encountered. The one bedroom flat is home to an elderly widow, who is unable to cope and has been living in heartbreaking squalor. A leaking pipe has been left unfixed for years and is now spreading damp throughout the flat.
In her bedroom, which she has not been able to venture into since the death of her husband, everything is covered in mould and cobwebs. In south London, Maxine and daughter Jasmine are dealing with a hoarder who has 20 years worth of possessions cluttering his flat. Dirg spends his days coordinating minicabs, but in the evening he comes home to utter chaos. Things have got so bad that for the last two years he has been forced to sleep on a makeshift bed on the floor. In Somerset, Shaun and his team specialise in full house clearances. They are clearing a flat for a landlord whose tenant appears not to have thrown anything away in years and rotting household rubbish almost fills the rooms. It takes the team a full day of hard graft and a strong stomach to finish the job.
