Doing a house clearance can be time consuming, stressful and exhausting. However, despite this it is something that many people choose to take on themselves. Particularly after the death of a loved one, it can be something that many people find helps them to deal with the loss and the grieving process.
If you are going to be tackling the job of a house clearance yourself, the key is to be well organised. Try to plan the clearance, have a look around and order what you are going to be doing maybe on a room-by-room basis. Get everything ready for when you start – order a skip from somewhere like Swansea skip hire company Pendragon skip hire to be there for the day that you are due to start so that you have somewhere to put the junk straight away.
It is also important to keep any documents that you may come across. Some of these might be important legal documents but even if they are not needed, they need to be disposed of securely and destroyed to prevent identity theft, so don’t just put them in the skip or in the household waste bin!
It is also a good idea to sell or donate to charity any items that you feel can be re-used by someone. Furniture can be sold or donated to a charity like the Heart Foundation who will come and collect it from you. Smaller items can be sold online at a car boot or donated to a charity shop.
