Due to the popularity of “Hoarders” and “Buried Alive”, often the first question I am asked when I tell people I’m a professional organizer is, “Do you ever work with hoarders?”  The answer is yes, we do.  Our client base in this particular area of professional organizing is fairly small at this time, but it has been slowly growing.  These shows have brought to light a sector of the population that was previously relatively unknown.  They often live in fear of others finding out about their “dirty little secret”.

We helped a recent client of ours, a self-proclaimed hoarder, get ready for her annual housing inspection.  I am pleased to report that this year she is planning to get help beyond just passing the inspection.  The client was kind enough to let us use these before and after pictures and video to show you just some of the things we do as professional organizers.  (Film critics please be kind, this is my first attempt at making video clips like this).



Hoarding is about so much more than just having “too much stuff” – it’s about the person’s relationship with stuff, it’s often times about them needing to have control of something in their lives often stemming from a great loss at an earlier point in the person’s life.  One of the worst things you can do in trying to “help” a hoarder is to get rid of their stuff or try to “clean up” without their permission.

Are you a hoarder or have a friend or relative who is a hoarder who is committed to moving forward in life?  Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help you reclaim space for what matters most.
