How to Do a Full House Clearance: 6 Tips From The Experts
Clearing out an entire house can be an overwhelming process. Whether you’ve lost a loved one or you’re moving to a new home and need to declutter, it’s tough knowing where to start with the removal process. In this guide, our experts in Brighton will give you some top tips on how to do a full house clearance to help make the process as stress-free as possible.
Start with a Plan
Rather than jumping in and getting overwhelmed with the amount of stuff you need to sort through, start by making a plan of action. Give yourself a set amount of time to work on each room, and try to figure out categories of things to break the process up into easier-to-manage chunks.
This is a good time to reach out to your local house clearance team to make sure they are ready to come and pick up the rubbish once you’ve removed everything you wish to keep.
Categorise Your Items
Everything in your house should fall into one of four categories: keep, recycle, sell/donate, or toss.
- Keep: Everything that has sentimental value or is useful to you gets to stay.
- Recycle: If it’s broken or useless but made of recyclable materials, it goes in the recycle pile.
- Sell/donate: If you don’t want it, but it’s in good condition, make some extra cash by selling it. Then, donate anything that doesn’t sell.
- Toss: If it’s very old, broken, stained, or not in working use, it goes in the rubbish pile.
Value Your Sell Items
Go through everything that has value that you don’t want to keep and figure out what you’re willing to sell it for. This will give you an idea of how much money you could make and will get you motivated to keep going with the process.
Start Selling Your Items Before Clearance
Selling items before a full house clearance will remove some of the clutter and make the removal process much easier. List things for sale on local selling pages, hold a car boot sale, or head to a local thrift store to see if you can sell any items.
Recycle Unwanted Items
You should have a local recycling centre in your area, but if you don’t want to deal with the long and strenuous process of taking items to the centre and splitting them up into the appropriate bins, we can handle this part of the process for you.
