Useful Tips For Your Upcoming House Clearance
Posted on 21 September 2016
There are various reasons for a house clearance – this big undertaking which makes a family reassess their belongings and finally part with some of them. It’s a challenge to go through a house clearance without having a fight with your spouse or children, but it has to be done eventually. Ignoring the need for it causes various issues, the biggest one affecting your health. A home that is cleared of clutter is healthy, clean and well-maintained – the way every house should be. Once every 3-4 years, set a date (ideally at the weekend) for a house clearance and a full cleanup of your home. Cabinets, drawers, wardrobes, boxes in the garage, basement and attic – take everything out and decide which items to keep, which can be recycled, what needs to be junked straight away and what can you sell or donate.
Get rid of the clutter to remove those dirty items that attract even more dust, grime and bacteria. This way you are doing something great for your home and your family’s health. If you can’t part with some items, but you really can’t store them at home anymore, think of storage options. Be reasonable and honest to yourself – items of sentimental value may seem really dear to you, but you will eventually have to throw them away or you will be all cluttered. Don’t block the rooms and pile up the cabinets with these things anymore. A house clearance for many people is a great opportunity to start fresh and renovate their homes, do small repairs, repaint and rearrange. The home can look like new with just a few shifts – more room for movement and a minimalistic design will make you feel much cozier, that’s for sure. The minute you accept that you don’t need so many items around you, the house clearance day will be one of those great revelation days for you. However, not all of us have the willingness or the time to do a full house clearance and organize everything that is involved in it. If that is the case with you and you can afford it, shop around for a house clearance company which can also take care of the waste disposal, the recycling process and even the cleaning afterwards. This way you will have a clean, tidy and healthy home in no time.
What you need to be careful with when hiring such a company is that you don’t end up paying a fortune to a rogue business, which can easily happen. Look for a fully licensed, registered and insured house clearance company which can provide you with positive recommendations from previous clients, a written agreement and full coverage. The easiest way to find the right company is through word-of-mouth recommendation, so ask friends and relatives first. Ask the company’s representative to pay a visit to your home to determine the amount of the work, the number of the team members needed and the exact price for the job that has to be done. This will help you determine whether you can afford the service and how long you have to be around while the process is going on. Only pay after the full job is done, including the waste disposal and the recycling.
