Energy broker, what’s the point?

This is a very valid question.  Why would anyone bother to go through a third party to secure their energy contracts and just add another layer of bureaucracy to the process?  At first glance it might seem that way, but in reality, a good energy broker will simplify the energy procurement process for you, not make it more complicated.

The world of deregulated energy in the UK is a bewildering one and is set with pitfalls that can mean just when you think everything is going…

What to expect when you’re applying to foster

When prospective carers are deciding whether fostering is right for them, an understanding of the application process is very important. Fostering is both the offer of a long-term commitment to a child and it is also the offer of a secure, stable and nurturing home environment.

End of Tenancy Cleaning

Cleanxtreme is happy to announce the securing of the End of Tenancy Cleaning Contract for both, domestic and commercial properties, with one of Rochdale's largest private letting and estate agents. 

When it comes time to move out many tenants neglect to do a final End of Tenancy Cleaning. The main reason is that they think it will be too difficult or will cost too much. Cleaning a whole apartment or house by yourself can be difficult and most people opt not to do it. Fortunately, we…
