Decluttering service in Edinburgh

What does it do?

I always feel that because the client is employing me it should be me doing all the work, as you should have it as easy as possible.

So I certainly don't expect you to be running around putting thing away or cleaning cupboards. You will probably find you are working hard enough deciding whether to keep things or let them go. This can be surprisingly tiring.

For example, if I were doing your wardrobe I would take as much as possible out, and lay it on a clean sheet on the bed. I would wipe out the wardrobe - there is no point in having a neatly organised wardrobe if it's still dusty.

You would then sit on the bed and we would look at your clothes, what you wear what you want to keep, how best they are organised in your wardrobe in a way that suits you. That could be by outfits, colours, seasons, work/play or like with like.

The aim is to have the finished wardrobe a thing of joy with clothes you like wear and that fit, and where everything is easy to find.

If you are not sure whether to keep or get rid of something I will ask you questions that will clarify your decision, but I will NEVER EVER tell you to get rid of something. There's no point.

I take away as many unwanted items as I can, to charity shops (let me know if you have a favourite), to recycle, for good homes, and to the dump.

I find that clients much prefer when their possessions find a new home where the item is appreciated, and I have a range of options that I can suggest.

After my visit you are left with a clean and tidy space, and no junk to dispose of.
