Cambridge dictionary (British meanings)

Quote:
going-over
noun [S]
› an ​activity such as ​cleaning that is done ​carefully and ​completely:
This carpet's ​filthy! It ​needs a really good going-over.
Detectives have given the ​apartment a ​thorough going-over (= ​examined it ​carefully).


› UK informal an ​occasion when someone is ​hit ​repeatedly:
They said I'd get a ​real going-over if I didn't ​pay them by ​tomorrow.
