Problems Involved With Performing A House Clearance Yourself

House clearances are not quick and easy. Whether you just want to create some more space in a certain room, or you are packing up your entire house due to moving, trying to manage either of these tasks can be difficult, time-consuming and most importantly dangerous.

Loft/Attic Clearances


One of the most difficult tasks you can try and undertake on your own involves lofts and attics, as unless you have a stair system, ladders are the only viable option to get up. Trying to single-handedly manage the weight of objects down a ladder can be daunting and very dangerous. Another danger involved with attics includes the insulation, it can be easy to stick to the floor or wooden beams when you aren’t carrying something. Trying to carry objects and accidentally stepping on the cladding may cause you to fall through the ceiling. This could potentially cause you to break a bone or worse and create the new job of repairing the ceiling.


Time Consuming


Trying to manage the clearance duties by yourself can take hours. If you have a lot to clear you may have to make repeated trips moving the unwanted products through your house into the car for disposal. Working at your own pace can be convenient, however, you may find yourself getting distracted. You may hurt yourself during the disposal process, carrying heavy objects and bending down to pick them up or drop them. At the end of the day house clearances are always easier with help.


Disposal Responsibilities 


If you are disposing of waste from your property, or business, you need to make sure you fulfil certain responsibilities. It is extremely beneficial for the environment and the planet if you reuse, recycle or repurpose old items. Improper waste disposal can lead to hefty fines and legal trouble. 


Getting Professional Help 


One of the primary benefits of getting professional help is minimising time and stress. Companies that specialise in clearance duties and removals will get your space cleared in no time, whilst you can relax or focus on other tasks that need doing. Professional companies will also have licences such as duty of care transfer notes to prevent fly-tipping.


Regardless of whether you need to move a room’s worth of items, or an entire house, professionals will not only do a good job, they will also be able to dispose of any unwanted items left behind effectively and efficiently. 


Professionals are also legally backed. For instance, our licences at Greenleaf Clearance include being part of the environmental agency as a registered waste carrier. We also have a scrap metal dealers licence. Our insurance provides full liability for our services.
