Help a Hoarder Loved One Clean up His Home

Helping a hoarder clean up his home involves more than the actual cleaning process. In order to ensure that his home stays clean and organized in the long run, you should help him in coping with the disorder altogether.
  • Establish trust with the person before making crucial steps in correcting his behavior
  • Educate yourself about hoarding and related disorders, such as OCD
  • Implement the only–handle-it-once (OHIO) rule in cleaning
  • Understand that hoarding is more complex than its more obvious manifestations, and that you should therefore exercise optimal patience with a hoarder loved one

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
