The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council (RBKC) report that they do not record data on the deep cleaning of flats on a block-by-block basis. A programme of deep cleaning was offered and provided to residents from Barandon Walk; Testerton Walk; Hurstway Walk; Treadgold House; Bramley House; Camborne Mews; Camelford Court; Camelford Walk; Upper Camelford Walk; Clarendon Walk; Lower Clarendon Walk; Morland House; Talbot Grove House; Talbot Walk; Upper Talbot Walk; and Verity Close when requested and access provided.

RBKC report that over 300 properties from these blocks on the Lancaster West Estate have been deep cleaned. 61 properties from these blocks are void properties, and are either awaiting or currently undergoing refurbishment work, which will include deep cleaning, before they are re-let through the estate’s Local Lettings Plan. The only other properties on the estate that have not been deep cleaned are properties where the household has chosen not to accept the offer of cleaning; or properties that are not currently occupied, pending a decision from the household on whether to return to their home.

Deep cleaning is also completed as part of refurbishment works to empty properties on the estate, and when households plan to return home from interim accommodation. No household is expected to return home before cleaning has been completed. RBKC have confirmed they would be happy to carry out any further cleaning for households on the estate, and this can be arranged through the Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team.
