Cleaning Out A House After A Loss


Cleaning Out After The Loss Of A Loved One – Sensitive Junk Removal In Orange County

We all know that death is a natural part of life, but when it happens to someone near and dear to us it can take a heavy toll. It can be incredibly difficult to go through their things and sort out what needs to be kept and what needs to be discarded. Here are a few tips from OC Junk Hauling – your local Orange County junk removal company –  to make the job a little easier:

  1. Find a reputable estate clean out professional, look at the reviews for estate clean out companies in your area. Check Yelp and Google Reviews and find a local junk cleanout company that can do the job for you.


  1. Ask how long the job should take start to finish. Time is always precious but especially so now when you have loads of things to accomplish in small window of time. Most reputable companies have efficient crew members who can clean out the entire house in a day or so.
  2. Be prepared to pay half before the start of the job and half upon completion. This is another sign of how reputable companies do business.
  3. Make three separate groups. The first is for items that you and your family would like to hang on to, such as jewelry, photographs and other mementos. The second group would be for items that need to be discarded or donated, such as furniture, appliances, clothes & other miscellaneous items. The final pile will include undecided items that you just cannot decide on. Hopefully, you can ask a family member or close friend to help you decide on what to do with this pile of items. Doing things this way will ensure that the house can be cleaned out completely.
  4. Use a storage space. You might have some things that you’re not ready to let go off but don’t have the space to keep it. I remember not being ready to part with my mom’s piano after her death. She was a skilled pianist and loved her piano and I have many wonderful memories around it. I had no space in my own home so kept it in a storage facility for a year or so. Don’t feel like you must make a final decision on all items right away. It’s a very difficult time so cut yourself some slack.
