Who We Are

Just a little note About Us…


Total Trauma Cleaning, Total Extreme Cleaning & Total Cleaning and Sanitising are trading names of Rubbish Clearance and Waste Removal Limited which is a local family run business, established in January 2007. This means we have many years’ experience and have thousands of satisfied customers.

Our company began as a waste removal service, – over time we were confronted with some very unpleasant and traumatic situations, which led us to educate and train ourselves to deal with specialized cleaning and clearing. This then led to training with ‘The National Academy of Crime Scene Cleaners’, resulting in becoming one of their rapid response teams covering the Hampshire area, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We have also added equipment, and best practice from the N.A.C.S.C. along with a massive amount of first-hand knowledge gained from practical experience in everything from syringe collection to decomposition, insect control to murder scenes. This together with International Maritime Organisation ‘Tier 2 Spill Response’ training; plus collaboration, training and equipment from ‘Edge Enviro Services Ltd’ and ‘Green Ocean NL’, the latest technology from ‘CopperTree Forensics’, and over 30 000 cleaning and clearing jobs behind us make us very confident that we have what it takes to solve your problem.

The team are made up largely of very close friends that I’ve known and worked with over the last twenty years or more. I trust them completely to be compassionate, thorough and effective; and have both customer satisfaction and best working practises at the very top of their priorities. You can trust them too.

We are environment agency licensed.

We are ‘IATP’ trained for asbestos related services.

We are registered data handlers.

We are ‘ISO’ 9001 & 14001 registered.

We supply specialist services to Fareham, Gosport, Portsmouth, and Southampton councils as well as Hampshire County Council.

We are happy to provide references if required, and to be fully transparent in the prices of all consumable / disposable equipment, and waste disposal costs.

We have accounts with ‘Stericycle Ltd’ for disposal of contaminated waste and sharps at their incinerator at the ‘Royal Bournemouth Hospital’ in Dorset.

All our individual specialised services have their very own domain which can be accessed by clicking on the colour coded ‘Total’ logos ¾ of the way down the homepage, or by going to www.thetotalgrouponline.co.uk which is a portal to access all of our individual websites.

Please feel free to call at any time on 01329 848737 or 07984 501822 to discuss your needs.
