Need major help
Hi, I haven't posted for awhile. My mother passed away last week. Prior to her final stay in hospital, she was in a nursing home for the last two years. My father spent every day with her from the morning until evening. As a result, he did not have time to look after their home, a bungalow. It has been sadly neglected for the last 2 years, partly because my dad had no time and partly because he's a guy and didn't know what to do. I was over there recently and realized that a major clean up is required. I also found evidence that there is a mouse infestation. Eeeek!!!
What should we do first? Clean everything and clear all the clutter out or call the exterminators first and then do the clearing. I would also appreciate advice on how and where to start as the whole task seems overwhelming.
My time is limited too, as I have a DH and 3 teenagers and home to look after and also work part-time! And I'm an only child, so no siblings to help and very limited family here as the majority are in Europe.
I know that all of you will have great advice and I thank you in advance.
