A house clearance is usually needed when clutter has been allowed to get out of hand in a home, work space or any other environment can create many problems for those operating in that space, but how do you tackle clutter clearance and how do you identify it? Too much clutter can increase the risk of physical injury due to tripping and falling, and potential damage to the structure of a building (and valuable items of property contained within) due to excessive weight and the collapse of items. There are also increased risks of emotional stresses and strains for those occupying such spaces. People simply cannot function properly in a cluttered environment and if you are living with clutter, you need to tackle the problem now.
Tackle Problems With Clutter
Here are few points worth considering to help you on the road to dealing with clutter:
If you are considering issues surrounding clutter and decluttering for the first time you need to get started by identifying the extent of the problem.
How to Identify Clutter
First of all you need to identify exactly what clutter is. Clutter can be a mess of untidy and random items, and in some cases excessively stacked items, taking up far too much space and inhibiting that space from functioning properly. Often clutter is stuff which is redundant, i.e. it is broken, ugly and serves no purpose for the owner anymore but for some reason cannot be discarded or recycled. Sometimes clutter is stuff that is unfinished, i.e. a DIY project half completed and left in limbo. Clutter can be found in private homes in junk drawers and rooms, attics, lofts and basements, gardens and around entrances and in more severe cases right throughout a property. Clutter can be anything from old mechanical or electronic equipment that doesn’t work, unwanted gifts, books that will never be looked at again, and stacks of ancient paperwork or magazines that serve no purpose and will never be used again. Too much clutter in a space, many experts argue, can be down to irrational or disorganised thinking by those responsible for it and can be part of obsessive thinking, contributing in some cases, to further mental health issues and depression. For some people the compulsive-hoarding-syndrome associated with clutter becomes a very serious problem and is now recognised as a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Decluttering, as well as cleaning and painting and decorating, is obviously a very positive thing to do to relieve the situation. Decluttering normally creates a huge sense of relief and satisfaction for all those involved in the process and for all those who come into contact with the newly liberated and often much cleaner and airy space. Often a full house clearance allows for the effective reorganisation of a property or work space, renovation and decoration – a process that can be very satisfactory for everyone involved.
