spring-clean-house-clearance-sheffield-chesterfield-worksopSpring has sprung and it is the perfect time of year for everyone to be spring cleaning their house.  For many people this is the time of year when they decide to tidy up, sort things out, out their house on the market and move on to pastures new.  But this is when people often discover all sort of items which they had completely forgotten all about, lurking in their attic or basement.  Do you know what’s hiding in yours?

Hiding House Clearance Treasures

Interestingly, during house clearances, it has been found that an estimated 40% of us own antiques or vintage items and 16% have unknowingly given these, often high value items away, either to friends, relatives or charity shops.  Strangely, even when a lot of us know that we have these items, it is interesting to know that we don’t tend to bother listing them on our home insurance, as a nation, either.  When asked during this survey, members of the public were unable to estimate the worth of the contents of the house due to the fact that they do not do a regular content checks, cover or valuations.  This can often be because we do not realise that some things are of particular value.  When we say antiques, yes we are referring to large items such as a Victorian sideboard, but there are much smaller, younger items which will surprise you with their value and these are examples of items which are often not taken in to consideration for valuation.  A good example of this is a Meccano, clockwork race car from somewhere around 1915 – this may have been small in size, but when sold, gained almost £500.

The House Clearance Jackpot

2015’s Antiques Roadshows filming day, attracted an incredible 35,000 people to attended the day and bring their personal belonging which were of interest and anything they wanted a valuation for.  These included mesmerising items, such as JFKs former jacket, an £80,000 musical penknife and a toy panda which once flew with the ‘Dambusters’ themselves.  But, what was the most spectacular find of the day, was a sketch which was believed to have been undertaken by Picasso.   This, however, was not the reason it was thought of to be so spectacular.  It was, in fact, due to it having bought from a sale post house clearance for just a couple of pounds.

House clearance company SheffieldBefore you embark on your house clearance Sheffield mission, it’s important you hire a company that will be suitable for your needs. There are lots of ways that you could go about your house clearance, from skip hire services to man with a van. If you’re looking for a reputable house clearance company in Sheffield, here are a few tips that should help you with your choice.

Make Sure They Have a Full Waste Carriers Licence

A reputable house clearance company who transports or disposes of waste for others has to have a waste carriers licence issued by the Environment Agency. In fact, they’re committing an offense if they don’t, and can be fined up to £5,000. Also, waste carriers licences have an expiry date, so it’s important that you ask the company you choose if it’s in date and valid.

Public Liability Insurance

It’s also important to ensure that the company you choose has public liability insurance. This type of insurance protects you and your family, as well as the public, against damage to your property and to yourself. For example, if a house clearance company are moving a sofa out of the house and someone gets injured in the process, or something gets broken, you’ll be entitled to compensation.

Check the House Clearance Company’s Coverage Area

When choosing a house clearance company to clear your property, ensure that their coverage area includes your property. Companies based further afield may charge more, or politely tell you that they are a bit too far away! For example, if you live in South Yorkshire, ensure that the company covers Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Chesterfield.

Choose a Company Who Will Take Care of the Lifting and Shifting

If you don’t want the hassle of moving all your unwanted items down stairs, outside, or to a convenient pick up area, why not choose a company who will do all the lifting and shifting for you? When you choose your house clearance company, simply make an enquiry as to whether they offer this as part of the service, and choose on that does.

Free Site Visits

It’s sometimes tricky to offer a customer an accurate quote over the phone, and you run the risk of the formal quote differing from it upon arrival at the site. That’s why it’s a sensible idea to choose a company that offers free site visits, so that you can get an accurate quote and make a decision from there.

It’s been well reported in local and national media that the amount of discarded rubbish littering the streets of the UK appears to risen dramatically. As rubbish removal and house clearance Sheffield experts, it’s clear that littering has become more of a problem, and that one of the possible solutions to this may be the education of young people to encourage them to take responsibility for disposing of rubbish correctly.

The Bin It! Campaignnick clegg talks litter sheffield

According to a recent article in the Sheffield Star, Nick Clegg, who is the current Sheffield Hallam MP, has visited High Storrs School in Bents Green, Sheffield, to talk about the Bin It! Campaign. The scheme itself aims to educate students about taking responsibility for litter, and has been developed by the chewing gum company Wrigleys, in partnership with the education consultancy Rapport. The Bin It! campaign is aimed at 11 – 13 year olds, and hopes to ‘encourage them to think about why people litter, reflect on their own behaviour and emphasise the importance of caring for their local area.’

Educating Young People About the Problem of Litter

Bin It! said “We use a team of actors to engage and educate young people about the problem of litter. This hands-on approach encourages pupils to make positive choices about the responsible disposal of litter in their community. Bin It! has a proven record of success, with results showing that a significant proportion of pupils think more about litter disposal having taken part in the session.”

£75 Instant Fine for Littering in Sheffield

Sheffield City Council have been also been working to reduce the amount of litter discarded in the city, imposing an instant fine of £75 for littering. The council issue fixed penalty notices to people who are caught dropping litter, and if they do not pay it, they will be taken to Court. It is also a criminal offence to drop litter or throw it from a car, and dog fouling in a public place can also result in a fixed penalty fine.

The local Council have also listed ways that residents can help to keep Sheffield tidy which include, not dropping litter on the streets, ensuring that dustbins and wheelie bins are not over filled, clearing up after your dog, and not disposing of household rubbish in litter bins. They also recommend teaching young people in the family to dispose of litter responsibly, echoing the message sent out by the Bin It campaign and Nick Clegg at High Storrs School.

Endcliffe student village flatsA recent article on the website of a national newspaper caught our eye recently; a flat in Sheffield University’s Endcliffe Student Village has been named the most disgusting student flat in Britain. According to the article, 2C in the Froggatt Apartments at Endcliffe Village contains an indoor compost heap, empty beer cans, piles of rubbish, and a stolen traffic cone.

As experts in rubbish removal and house clearance Sheffield, Clearance and Clean Up see a great many flats and houses in need of a good clear out and clean, but we can’t say we’ve ever come across an indoor compost heap before! But students are notorious for being untidy and living in unsanitary conditions, to the point where it has become an ingrained cultural joke.

The images show a communal kitchen area strewn with week’s worth of dirty cooking equipment and utensils, empty bottles and left over, decaying food. The living room is littered with empty bottles of wine, beer cans, glasses and mugs, as well as playing cards – apparent evidence of drinking games before their nights out at the student union. However, they do have a large plasma screen TV, which sits on top of an empty beer keg.

Last 2 Communal Area Inspections Failed

One resident of the flat defended the mess by saying that the stacks of filthy cutlery and plates that have been turned into ashtrays 'adds character', while another admitted the only time the sink has been emptied was when someone urinated in it.  It’s got so bad that even the cleaner refuses to enter the kitchen, calling it “a disgrace”. According to the article, the flat has failed its last 2 communal area inspections.

The University of Sheffield has an excellent reputation for its student flats, with the newly built Endcliffe Village housing more than 3,000 of the university’s students in a complex of flats and apartment buildings. An en suite single room in one of the flats in the Froggatt building costs students £5,294.94 for 42 weeks of the academic year.

Rubbish page hall estate SheffieldHouse clearance Sheffield services Clearance and Clean Up read an article in The Sheffield Star recently regarding rubbish problems in the city. The newspaper has recently reported on the rubbish strewn streets of a troubled Sheffield estate. The Page Hall estate has been plagued by serious litter problems in recent weeks, and extra staff have had to be drafted in to tackle the problems of fly tipping, litter and rubbish in the area.

According to the article, the residents of the estate are fed up and worried about the state of the streets, and fear that the workers brought in to sort the problem out are only ‘fire fighting’, rather than making a long term difference to the condition of the area.

Educating Residents About the Correct Disposal of Rubbish

As experts in rubbish removal and house clearance in Sheffield, it’s a real shame to see areas such as this suffering due to fly tipping and littering. Sadly, littering is a common problem in many areas and simply tidying up after people doesn’t address the root cause of the problem. Educating residents about the correct disposal of rubbish and litter is incredibly important, and learning about the effect of the littering on the community is important too.

According to the newspaper, the area has suffered since an influx of Roma Slovak families moved in to the area, and the way that they live has had a serious impact on the residents who have lived on the estate for years. Although the council is trying hard to make sure that educational work is taking place, the problem will not be solved ‘overnight’.

“An Absolute Disgrace”

A resident of the area said that council staff cleared up a littered area of Hinde Street recently, but that just a day later the area had been fly-tipped with the contents of a skip, graffiti had been scrawled on the walls and a black bag of rubbish had been dumped. The resident said “This is an absolute disgrace to wake up to. When is the enough-is-enough mindset going to come to the forefront and let the tired, stressed folk here have a bit of peace, quiet and cleanliness.”

Nick Chaplin, environmental protection manager said: “If there is an occasion where we can just make contact with residents and talk to them about what we expect in terms of not dropping litter, and teaching their children not to do that, we will do so.”

Sheffield city centre plagued by rubbishThe O2 phone shop on Fargate in Sheffield city centre has been accused of leaving huge piles of rubbish behind their shop, adding to the litter problem in the city. A pile of waste has built up in recent weeks, leading to problems with vermin and the spread of rubbish throughout the street. The Sheffield Star has reported that John White, who works at Cutlers’ Hall in the city centre said: “This rubbish has been lying around for a few weeks. You would think this sort of behaviour would be stamped on quickly.”

Misunderstanding between Waste Company and Landlord

A spokesman from 02 has responded to the complaint and admitted that they were responsible for the rubbish. John Mailey from 02 said “Unfortunately, there was a misunderstanding between the waste company and the landlord, who manages the collection of waste from our shop, resulting in a missed collection. The problem has been resolved and the waste cleared. We apologise if this may have caused any inconvenience.”

As house clearance Sheffield experts, Clearance and Clean Up have noticed that Sheffield city centre has been plagued by unwanted waste and rubbish recently, most of which lies around for weeks before it is removed. There has also been an issue with the homeless ripping open the bin bags in their search for food and valuables, therefore spreading the rubbish around further.

A Nation of Litter Bugs

Unfortunately, litter is a problem all over the UK. According to a recent survey by Keep Britain Tidy, almost two thirds of us are litter bugs. However, only 28% are actually willing to admit that they drop their rubbish. A massive £1bn a year is spent on collecting litter in England alone, and the survey expressed particular concern over the amount of littler created by cigarettes, fast food, soft drinks, sweet and chocolate bar wrappers and crisps packets.

Keep Britain Tidy

Keep Britain Tidy was created 60 years ago, and wants more government action on litter instead of leaving it to local authorities. Some councils hand out hundreds of fines a year for littering, while others tread more carefully because of negative publicity. More than 63,000 fines were handed out in councils in England in 2012.

house clearance sheffieldWhether you’re clearing a house after the death of a relative or friend, you’re moving house, or you’re getting a property ready to rent, you’re likely to have an assortment of unwanted items that need to be disposed of. There are a variety of options for getting rid of rubbish and junk, and as a house clearance company working throughout Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Worksop and Chesterfield, Clearance and Clean Up have come up with a few ways that you can do so.

Take it to the Local Skip

When you’ve got a lot of junk lying around that’s not fit for the charity shop, Ebay or Gumtree, you may decide to make a trip to your local skip and get rid of it all there and then. If you’re able to cram it all in the boot of your car then that’s great, but bigger loads may require a few journeys. Alternatively, you could to look into hiring a van, but obviously there will be a fee involved and you’ll still have to do all the lifting and shifting yourself.

Arrange a Collection with the Council

Another alternative is to contact your local council and arrange a bulky waste collection. Generally, this is a really affordable service, but unfortunately they usually take at least a week to arrange. You’ll be limited to a maximum number of items, so if you do have a lot, it’s not the ideal solution. They also require you to put all of the items outside of the property as they won’t collect from inside, so that means you’ll be responsible for shifting everything outdoors too.

Hire a Skip

Hiring a skip is another way that you can dispose of unwanted items. Depending on the size of skip you need to hire, they can be quite expensive, and you also need a skip permit if you plan to have it parked on the road. But again, hiring a skip means that you’ll have to do all the lifting and shifting yourself, which may be a big job if you’re trying to get large items into a skip that’s parked outside your property.

Hire a House Clearance Company in Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Worksop or Chesterfield

The other alternative is hiring a house clearance company in Sheffield such as Clearance and Clean Up. House clearance companies are a great option if you want a hassle free way to get rid of unwanted items from a house clearance, and they’ll do all the lifting, carrying and shifting for you. Clearance and Clean Up can carry out full or part house clearances, and are able to take away single items or multiple truck loads. This service is available 7 days a week and, if needed, can be carried out after normal working hours.
