London house clearance specialists Jeffrey Avery & Associates talk about bereavement house clearance and if someone close to you dies, such as a partner, parent or close relative, it could be you that’s left to sort out their possessions. We often work with families and individuals experiencing bereavement, and appreciate that everyone has a different idea of ‘the right time’ to dispose of things after a death. If there is a house to be sold some people find it easier to get a house clearance organised and dispose of the furniture and effects quickly. For others it could be a longer and more drawn out process. We have carried out house clearance due to bereavement in all parts of London so we can help.
It takes time to rebuild normality after losing someone due to bereavement and is nearly always a long process. Getting rid of belongings once owned by that person is a massive step in the acknowledgement that they have gone. Sometimes it’s hard not to feel that it is disloyal or disrespectful to get rid of things that belonged to a loved one. It does not diminish that person in any way, it’s not the case because If you love someone, whether they are alive or sadly passed on, they will always be important in your life. So you should not feel guilty about disposing of their belongings if you really have no wish to retain them.
We advise you to get rid of things slowly and at your own pace making sure that you don’t “just leave it”. Being surrounded by things belonging to another person and the sad memories that may be attached to them, is not good for you and your energy levels. If left for too long it will drag you down. There is a right time to grieve but also a time to move on with your own life.
