UK Probate Research Awards winner Just Clear helping in the fight against Covid-19

Brendan O’Shea, CEO of the eco-friendly, house clearance and rubbish removal business Just Clear, has a new coronavirus decontamination service, This is Money reports.  By using an electrostatic spraying solution, Just Clear can easily decontaminate surfaces without wiping the area down.

The article highlights that the new service is available nationwide and Mr O’Shea has already received several enquiries.  He said, “I’ve just been quoted to clean 4,200 properties that need decontamination for Covid-19 and that was just for one client who has a number of accommodations.”

With the new service being considered as a vital resource in the prevention of spreading coronavirus, Just Clear have been awarded a Covid-19 contractor status.

Just Clear donated masks to a London hospital

Mr O’Shea, who founded Just Clear in 2007, and the office staff are currently working from home following the guidelines from the government, while cleaning and removal technicians have been provided with “all the correct personal protective equipment, which they re-stocked in December last year.”

With a lack of PPE for frontline NHS workers, Just Clear kindly donated 400 masks to a London hospital allowing them to be properly protected.

Two-time winners at the UK Probate Research Awards

The introduction of their new service comes shortly after Just Clear were awarded the ‘Best Property Clearance Firm’ at the UK Probate Research Awards 2020; an award they also won at the 2019 ceremony.

This was awarded to them for their hard-work, dedication and zero-to-landfill policy.  They provide a vital service to the probate industry where many people die with no known next of kin, leaving behind properties filled with belongings.

However, in the article, Mr O’Shea said that Just Clear have been called in to clear “more than 80 tonnes of expired food from food hoarding where regular bin collection services couldn’t cope” and he expects there to be around “37 million tonnes [of waste generated] as more people get deliveries at home and conduct clear outs during the lockdown.”
