In Glasgow, Steve and Jamie are called to the rescue of a man who has been struggling since the death of both his partner and best friend only a few years ago. The bedroom became a dumping ground; and he's living, sleeping and eating in only one room which is now covered in rotten food, broken kitchen appliances and cigarette butts. Steve and Jamie have only three days to make everything right and return the gentleman to some normality.
In Dover, Maxine and Jasmine are helping a 56-year-old man with learning difficulties. He had stopped cleaning a month after he moved into his flat eight years ago and there's now rubbish everywhere and a toilet that is almost blocked with limescale. Maxine resorts to a powerful acid which strips the toilet clean.
In Kent, La'Toyah and Jon Marc also have an extreme case of dirt to deal with. The resident had been struggling to live in the one bed flat alone; the cooker top is thick with grease and the carpet has ground-in food throughout. With only a day to turn the flat around they almost face disaster when the washing machine floods the kitchen floor.
