Homefulness always proceed with an in-home consultation prior to booking a session. During the consultation we will work with you to determine how many hours you may require. It is not always possible however to give an accurate estimate and some projects may require more sessions/hours than initially thought, depending on a variety of factors as each project and client is unique.
One session typically last up to 3 hours. Session price if per organiser. Should the time of the session go over 3 hours, you will be charged £70 per hour and per organiser for the hours worked. Homefulness will always inform you when the booked time is up and obtain your permission to continue if you wish to do so.
When doing decluttering with you, Homefulness will always work at your own pace as decluttering can be physically and emotionally demanding. Breaks can be taken as you wish, however please be aware that these breaks will count towards the duration of the booked session. Should the session duration take place during breakfast, lunchtime or dinner, our organiser may need to take a break (no more than half an hour) and you will not be charged for this time. This will be arranged prior to the session starting so you are aware of timings.
Homefulness organisers work Monday to Friday 8 am - 6 pm. After-hours sessions can be arranged at an additional cost.
Please ensure there is good access immediately outside your home and inside your home. Homefulness is unable to move furniture due to reasons of health and safety.
Should the working area be considered unsafe Homefulness reserves the right to cancel the session without refund.
Decluttering focuses on deciding which of your possessions and items you want to keep. Through this process, you may find yourself parting with possessions or items that you decide you no longer need. The decision to keep or discard an item is entirely yours. We only guide you to help you determine what you need in your home. Advice is given in good faith and it is always your decision to accept guidance on whether or not to keep particular possessions. Homefulness cannot therefore accept responsibility for the consequences of such decisions. Homefulness cannot be held liable for any possessions or items that have been discarded.
Removal of possessions
We encourage recycling items where possible or donations to registered charities. You may even choose to sell possessions or items that you no longer need. Homefulness is unable to provide a valuation service, nor do we have expertise to identify items of special value or rarity. In any event, possessions or items disposed of are your sole responsibility. Items to be removed from your premises, either for disposal or to other locations, must be at your own discretion. Disposal will not take place without your authorisation. The client accepts responsibility for all or any items disposed of in the decluttering process. Homefulness is happy to help with such disposal (e.g. removal to local refuse tip or to charity shop) if we are able to do so, i.e. for small items. You are responsible for removing larger items that cannot be easily carried in one's hands.
Homefulness might use before and after photographs to support a client's organisation journey.
Homefulness might use these photographs to inspire others on this website and on social media platforms. Photographs are always anonymised; the client cannot be identified through them. We will always ask for your expressed permission to use your photographs in this way.
Homefulness may make suggestions on additional products and services by third parties. Although we always do our best to ensure we recommend high quality products and services we are unable to accept any responsibility or liability should the products or services cause you direct or consequential loss or damage.
Homefulness is not a cleaning service and we are therefore unable to provide cleaning services.
