Tom Pickering, the owner of Clearance and Clean Up, is asked certain questions extremely frequently.  So we thought, what better than writing an article in an attempt to answer those questions for you.  We don’t want moving house or house clearances to be as daunting as people often think they are.  They key to everything is to be as organised as is humanly possible!

In a nutshell, if you are disorganised (don’t know where anything is, where anything is going, don’t know what you do or don’t want to keep, haven’t emptied any cupboards, wardrobes etc., haven’t given any clear instructions to the clearance team before they arrive, haven’t asked neighbours for a access permission or cleared a route for the clearance team) then this will lead to clearance team having to be on site for much longer, which in return will, without doubt cost you more money!  So, if you are wanting to be economical, be organised!

Tom’s Top Tips

  1. Get yourself organised – this is the key for a smooth, successful and the most economical house clearance possible for everybody involved.
  2. Remove the items that you definitely want to keep so that clearance can be done with minimum fuss and confusion.
  3. Give reusable items, which are in a good condition, to your family and friends – it’s a nice way to recycle your used items without throwing them away unnecessarily.
  4. Bagging up clothing, towels and bedding BEFORE we arrive can really speed up the clearance process and reduce the length of time drastically that we are on site for.
  5. This is the same for the kitchen cupboards, which are best emptied on to the kitchen sides.
  6. Get permission from your neighbours, regarding parking and pedestrian access.
  7. Make sure we have clear access for us to manoeuvre and for our vans, too – the quicker and it is easier it is for us, the more cost effective it is for you and obviously we want to avoid damaging anything or obtaining any injuries from tripping over anything etc.
  8. The more you are able to do in advance, prepare, pack up or move, the less time we will spend in your property and therefore the cheaper your house clearance will be. The longer it takes us, the more expensive it will be for you.

What is A Big Hindrance During a House Clearance?

What Makes a House Clearance CHEAPER FOR YOU?

What is the Average Cost of a House Clearance?

This is 100% dependent on the property size, the volume of items of removal and the length of time we are on site for.  But here is a rough idea for you of different types of average property house clearance prices:

1 bedroom flat                  =             £230

2 bedroom terrace          =             £295

3 bedroom house            =             £295 to £455

These prices are based on normally furnished properties and do not include garages or outbuildings.  Neither do these prices include the take up or removal of carpets.

Guinness-furness house-clearance

This month, the heirs to the Guinness brand, auctioned off the contents of their Georgian property, Furness House, which was built in 1740.  The auction was held at Killashee House Hotel due to the house currently being for sale.  Patrick and Louise Guinness (Patrick being thedirect descendent) are the seventh generation, post Arthur Guinness, when they bought Furness House in 1994.  21 years later, the couples have decided to downsize their house and get rid of many of its valuable contentsby having a house clearance sale, since the last of their four children left home.  Many of the items being sold are Guinness and Co. memorabilia.  Items like a rare pair of metal-bound stout barrels which were inscribed with the company name made €2,300 and a set of coloured caricature prints entitled The Gentle Art of Making Guinness sold for €1,600.  Though the biggest surprise of the day during the house clearance auction was the success of an Edwardian carved and hand painted rocking horse.  It was estimated to fetch between €800 and €1,200 but sold for a whopping €6,600!

We've all heard the expression “looks like a building site” said when a place looks messy, and for good reason. Building and construction sites are messy places and produce a lot of waste. With all the rubbish and waste materials left behind during construction, it is often difficult to manage and dispose of correctly. Did you know, for example, that an average sized 3 bedroomed house produces approximately 13 tonnes of waste? It isn't surprising that sometimes building firms attempt to cut costs by getting rid of their rubbish illegally.

Danger to the Environment
A farmer in Devon has recently been ordered to pay £6,000 in fines and court costs after he had dumped over 50 tonnes of rubbish close to a stream. The man had buried the waste underground after initially being prosecuted for tipping and burning materials on the land. He was ordered to remove the waste however was found to have buried items such as stone, construction rubble, asbestos roofing sheets and electrical goods. They were left next to a stream and close to wildlife meaning that pollution could have damaged the local environment.

Dumped Asbestos
In a similar story, asbestos piping and guttering was tipped in Spalding, Lincolnshire leaving the council (and of course taxpayers) with a £450 bill. It is unclear as to who the culprit is; it is possible that it could be vandals, or perhaps builders looking to offload the piping quickly and cheaply. Either way, it is dangerous and costly to the rest of the community.

Qualified and Knowledgeable
Clearance and Cleanup are fully licenced and able to remove any construction waste you may have. Likewise, if the waste has already been left or dumped in a public space we can remove that too. We are qualified and knowledgeable when it comes to handling asbestos, so don’t risk a large fine if you are struggling to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. Visit our contact page to see how you can get in touch.

Playing fields and parks are focal points within communities and are used by lots of people for a variety of reasons. As events are often staged in these public spaces however, littering and rubbish becomes a problem for those that use them afterwards. The issue of littering is one which has been around for a long time and doesn't seem to be going away. Littering shows a complete lack of consideration for other people, and local councils are keen to keep their public spaces clean.

Keep it Clean
In Blackpool, councillors have requested that local football teams using playing fields clean up after they have finished playing, as empty drinks bottles are often left behind. It has been suggested that the team takes black bin liners with them and perform routine walks along the touch lines after the matches have finished collecting rubbish as they go. With such a large number of people it is difficult to keep track of who is disposing of their rubbish properly, so carrying out a large sweep of the area would certainly help to cut down on the amount that is left behind.

Pitch Invasion
The clubs have responded claiming that they do not leave any rubbish behind when they leave the fields. They also say that the team’s managers regularly have to clean up before the match due to the broken glass bottles and sharp cans strewn across the pitches. This is of course extremely dangerous for players as any cuts they sustain could lead to a trip to the hospital! Litter isn't just a matter of tidiness; it can also be unsafe for children, animals and those unaware.

Respect
As these public places are shared by everybody, each with a different use, it’s important that we consider our neighbours’ needs and respect their right to a safe and clean environment. Whether we are playing football, walking dogs or sitting out for a picnic cleaning up after ourselves should be an automatic action. If fairs or outdoor events are being held then a cleanup becomes a much more difficult task. Outside help from specialist companies such as ourselves is a sensible option to make sure all waste is cleared thoroughly and effectively.

We are often called in to properties that have been repossessed to clear the house of the previous occupiers’ mess. We were asked not too long ago to carry out some work on a fire damaged property in Barnsley. The work was issued by a national company and had to be carried out in a very short time scale as they themselves were working to a deadline.

Exposed
There were many problems with this property, but the most difficult to contend with was the fact the roof had being taken off following a fire. So despite the house being fire damaged, the whole building was soaked throughout due to being exposed to the elements.

Wet & Heavy
Every room in the upstairs of the house was covered in pieces of the ceiling, which had fallen through. The wet plasterboard had to be removed prior to removing the items of furniture and carpeting which were also soaked, very heavy and filthy from the fire. Naturally, we found moving the heavy, damp plasterboard a bit of a struggle!

Making the Property Presentable
Once the property was cleared and fully swept through we had to go back and give it a thorough “basic” clean before the property was ready to receive viewings from prospective buyers. The front and back gardens were also very overgrown. Coupled with the fact that they were full of rubble and broken tiles from the damaged roof, this made it hard work cutting back and clearing it. We needed to make sure the gardens were presentable so that people viewing the house could appreciate the size.The job was a tiring and extremely dirty job which needed to be tacked fast. We put in a lot of effort so that we would be finished for the deadline date.

bed 2

After We Had Finished
Overall the property went from being overgrown, filthy and full of rubbish to a clean and clear space with a nice garden. Of course there was little we could do about the fire damage and roofing situation, however we put the property in a position where it was able to be viewed by the public safely, and so that they could visualize what a completely renovated house might look like.

Success!
In total, we cleared away 4 van loads of rubbish, which equates to approximately 5 tonnes! All rubbish was taken to a local waste transfer station and anything that we could recycle was done so appropriately. The work we carried out went a long way to helping the owners in selling. The house was sold on the 1st viewing after we had finished, whereas before, 3 previews viewings wouldn't even go inside! Another success for Clearance and Clean Up!

Our more practical services involve the more typical lifting and shifting work that you would probably expect of Clearance and Cleanup, however there are many other facilities that we offer aside from large clearance operations. One of the most varied parts of our job is the deep cleaning service. We have undertaken many different jobs, and trust us, every single one is new experience for us. We should note that during deep cleans we have to be extremely careful, as we put ourselves at risk. We deal with hazardous materials regularly, and so take the necessary precautions.

Remaining Professional
There are many reasons as to why a person may need a deep clean of their property, with numerous different objects and substances that need to be cleaned.  We cater for all situations, and remain respectful and professional throughout, despite the fact we are perhaps working under sensitive conditions.

Property Cleaning
Perhaps you’re a landlord of a rented property, if so we are able to clean up after messy tenants - Not everybody leaves a house how they found it! This goes for all properties that are void or empty. Factories, offices or residential, we will deep clean after occupiers have left, or if the property has been left vacant for a long time. Cleaning properties used by hoarders also falls under our extreme cleaning category, due to the potentially hazardous nature of the task. An excess of possessions and waste materials can become a breeding ground for rodents and insects, which in turn spreads bacteria. For more information about hoarding, refer to our previous blog post on the subject.

Biological Waste
We are able to clean up biological waste too. Of course, operating with the correct biohazard clothing and equipment, a clean-up of fecal matter from humans and animals is not a problem for the team. We have been called out to toilet blocks, prisons (dirty protests), and cleared public monuments and spaces of animal droppings too.

With extreme cleaning we are regularly required to attend crime or accident scenes. We have worked on traumas, suicides and undiscovered deaths too. We are fully certified and licenced and have the relevant equipment in order for us to be able to carry out our work to the highest standers. What’s more, we use environmentally friendly cleaning products exclusively.

Safety First
The priority for us is safety when it comes to deep and extreme cleans. We do everything possible to ensure the safety of our team when executing the work and the state of the property after we've finished, so that it can be used safely again. If you think we may be able to help, then get in touch freephone on 0800 410 1086.
