Clearance of Flood Damaged Country Manor, High Blantyre, Glasgow

Case Study: Clearance of Flood Damaged Country Manor,
High Blantyre, Glasgow

Client name: PWC
Business Sector: Commercial Property
Location: High Blantyre, Glasgow


Thieves had accessed the roof and stole a large quantity of lead. As a result, the building was completely flooded with water saturating all carpeting and literally running down the walls. We were required to clear the entire property of all items including carpeting and everything which had been affected by the water. The building was to be sold and as such, they wanted the place cleared, repaired then dried out so that the damage could be limited.


Project Details

The fact that everything was soaked through made it all very heavy. The fact that the rooms were so vast meant a lot of carpet was to be removed. They all had to be cut into liftable rolls and walked, sometimes considerable distances, to the trucks. The building was without heat or power so temporary generators and rigs were brought in.

We removed over 22 truckloads over a four day period and removed all kinds of items as part of the building had been used as a kids’ nursery. Lots of catering equipment were also disposed of as well as lots of furniture.

Once we were finished, the building had a fighting chance of drying out before going on the market to be sold. It has since been turned into a magnificent hotel which resembles nothing of the state we found it in. The value of the lead stolen probably wasn’t worth a great deal but the damage it did was incredible.

    Hi I had my garage cleared yesterday & I wanted to compliment the two young men who did an amazing job. They were punctual, polite, efficient & got the job done quickly. They also handled neighbours with courtesy. I would recommend your company to friends & family. Thank you very much for a great job.

    Ross and all the guys at Junk It offer a brilliant efficient and hassle free uplift service. I’ve used Junk It a few times to clear out offices of old furniture etc and they never disappoint. It’s great to know that most of the stuff they take away is re-used or recycled too. Don’t just chuck it – Junk It

    We have used Junk It on a number of occasions to carry out waste removal services. I can honestly say that the way in which the company operates, their fast response times, and overall methods are fantastic. It also gives us great peace of mind that we are dealing with a company who are totally up to date with SEPA and other environmental legislation, as we have come across many other waste management companies who are not fully aware of these issues. I would happily recommend Junk It to any other organisation.
