Spring Cleaning Tips for 2015: What Things to Get Rid Of

With the summer fast-approaching, it’s a good time to free your house of clutter so that you’re living space is a bit more comfortable for the warmer months (should they come). Spring-cleaning is often a good idea this time of year, allowing you the opportunity to get rid of all kinds of every-day objects which are filling up your shelf and cupboard space. Here’s a run-down of some of the more common items that people choose to off-load.

Appliances
Most houses these days feature a plethora of electronic appliances, whether they’re for the kitchen or home entertainment. Surprisingly, many people choose to keep hold of outdated and even broken appliances – these can of course take up a great deal of space. So find those appliances which are beyond repair or date back to the late 1980 and get rid.

Books
Do you have books that you’ve never read or intend to read? Then it’s probably worth getting shot of them. While some reading materials have a real sentimental value (such as your children’s books) they can dominate a living-space. Try and be brave about which ones you can afford to lose – you’ll be surprised at how much room you’ll save.

Cables and wires you don’t need
One of the more annoying by-products of electrical appliances are the wires and cables they come with. Many of them tend to become obsolete rather quickly. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop some people hording them in the hope that they may be of some use to other appliances. This isn’t usually the case so consider unravelling that tangled mess behind your TV and allow those services specialising in WEEE rubbish removal in London, to take over.

Clothing
The hording of clothes and garments can be a real space-drainer. Although it’s hard to let certain items go, especially if they’re expensive, throwing them away or taking them to the local clothing bank can significantly de-clutter your wardrobe. Look for out-of-fashion items or clothes that you know in your heart-of-hearts you’ll never wear again, and free up that space!

Crockery, Mugs
Kitchen cupboards are usually full of old mugs or crockery, often adorned with patterns that are more suited to a 1970s sitcom set. They’re usually found at the back of these afore-mentioned kitchen cupboards, gathering dust. Let them go!

Old magazines
Old magazines tend to pile up rather quickly and be a real space-hogger. There’s often no need to keep hold of these, unless you’ve contributed an article or your face features on the front-cover. Items such as these aren’t terribly popular with charities or even book banks so their best left to companies like us, who specialise in rubbish clearance in London.

If you’ve decided that it’s time for a spring-clean, it might be worth contacting a professional service like us who specialise in house clearing as well as rubbish collection in London.
