What Is House Clearance?

House clearance refers to the process of removing and disposing of unwanted items from a property. It involves decluttering and clearing out the contents of any other residential space. The goal of a house clearance is to leave the property clean, empty, and ready for its next purpose, whether that be a new occupant moving in, preparing the property for sale, or handing it over to landlords or property managers.
