Testimonial

I would like to thank Christine Durrant for her help in cleaning and tidying my home. Thank you Christine for giving me the strength I needed to do this project and thank you for becoming a good friend as well. I would like to say that it’s people like you who help others to understand and get over their problems.
Thank you again,
Your friend,

Working together to live apart

You have made the decision.  It is time to go your separate ways.  One of you has left already and the other has decided it is time to sell the house.  It is crunch time and you need to bite the bullet and get those final things sorted. BUT you are both dreading it.

Is this you?  It doesn’t have to be.  Book a session with me and get that job done.

I act as an impartial advocate for both parties helping you to see it through.

Devon Clutter Busters

I help my clients put systems in place designed to meet their specific needs; some might want to sort a set of cupboards or reinvent a room or just find the floor! Whatever your needs I have a sympathetic, fun approach which leaves you feeling good about yourself and your home.

I have helped people who have hoarding disorder to take charge of their homes again and recover a sense of who they really are.

I also deliver talks and workshops and run Clutterbugs, a friendly, confidential and supportive group for people who have problems with clutter and need ongoing support. Clutterbugs meet at CentrePeace Community Centre in Paignton on the third Monday of the month from 9.30am to 11.00am.

For more information please call me on 07794 978095

I look forward to helping you

About Me

Hi, my name is Christine Durrant.

I have been in business as a professional de-clutterer since 2009. Before I started my business I spent 6 months helping a friend to sort her flat. She was kind enough to let me take photos and also give me feedback on what was helpful and what was not. I am greatly indebted to her for allowing me into her life and for the encouragement she gave me to start my business.

7 years on and I am still enjoying helping people to rediscover the space they have but can’t see for clutter. Possessions are great until they stop us from enjoying our living space.

If your possessions are beginning to possess you then why not give me a call and find out how I can help you to reorganise the space and where necessary thin out those possessive possessions!

Fire Risks

Cluttered homes can increase the risk of fatalities when there is a fire. Cluttered doorways or corridors can impede the exit of the house holder but equally can impede the entrance of a fire fighter. Clutter makes it more difficult to find the occupants in a house filled with smoke. Accumulated clutter when it catches light burns hotter than a normal house fire which puts fire fighters at risk.

Can we afford not to deal with it?

Fire fighters in Exeter and Somerset are working together with Housing Agencies, Environmental Health, Professional Organisers and other interested parties in the South West to see how we can reduce risk in cluttered homes.

As a small start, may I suggest you get rid of any old VHS videos? Apparently they burn faster and hotter than paper and give off toxic fumes. Don’t let them clutter your rooms.

Need help looking at fire risks in your home? Contact your local fire fighters and ask for a home visit. It could save your life.
