Ye Olde Whyte Swanne – Louth

Home / Job of the Month / Ye Olde Whyte Swanne – Louth

We were recently asked to carry out high level cleaning at Ye Olde Whyte Swanne in Louth. Safe to say, we had our work cut out! Armed with our deep clean flooring equipment, we headed on down.


To give you a bit of history, Ye Olde Whyte Swanne is on the Eastgate, in the historical Lincolnshire market town of Louth. The building dates back to 1625, when it was a coaching inn – featuring old wooden beams and quarry tiles. The building had been empty for some time, and was well overdue a professional clean! Our team faced thick dust, heavy cobwebs and mould.

Downstairs, the washrooms were all steamed and scrubbed, and the walls, woodwork and ceiling were manually cleaned. Our industrial floor cleaning equipment came in very handy – the floors had to be treated several times before we were happy with the result.

Upstairs consisted mainly of accommodation which had not been cleaned for some time! Most of the rooms were ensuite, so not only were we tasked with polishing up the rooms, but also the showers too. They were cleaned to the very highest of standards, like all of our work.

The mission that was the cellar!

Where do we begin to start with the cellar? We knew that a quaint Lincolnshire pub was bound to have a cellar. But even we were surprised at how dirty this had become! Half a day was spent clearing out the rubbish alone. That was before we could start on the cleaning process.

The kitchen also proved to be challenging – it was a real state. We started by taking down the extractor fans, and giving them a spruce up with our commercial cleaning equipment. Have a look at the before and after pictures how grim they were before we got our hands on them! We also carried out some cleaning work on some restaurants earlier on in the year – have a look at how their extractor fans compare!

We will be back to the Ye Old Whyte Swanne before they open for business – to give the place a final spruce up.
