The death of a parent often sends families into a tailspin of emotions. However, as the initial trauma eases, loved ones face the challenge of settling the estate. From dividing keepsakes to disposing of unneeded items, the task often seems like an impossible combination of hard work, grief, and decision-making. For adult children, cleaning out a deceased parent’s home often feels like in insurmountable burden for which they were never prepared.
While estate clearing is already difficult enough, what happens when the parent exhibited hoarding behaviors? Excessively cluttered or hoarder homes present both physical and emotional challenges for the deceased’s loved ones. How do you clean out a house after a death when the home has become so overwhelmed with stuff? How will you sort through it all, especially if parts have become unsanitary?
Where Do I Start When Clearing Out My Deceased Parent’s Home?
At Clutter & Hoarding Pros, we want prospective clients to know that they don’t have to go through this situation alone.
We specialize in cleaning out a deceased’s estate, and our primary focus is on homes affected by hoarding behaviors. Unlike basic junk removal services, we approach estates with compassionate care and strive to help families accomplish their individual goals.
For example, many of our clients hope to salvage certain keepsakes or see if anything of value remains beneath the clutter. In these cases, we work collaboratively to sort, clean, and organize while disposing of unwanted items. Other clients might need the home completely overhauled so that it can be put up for sale.
Because we fully remediate homes within days—not weeks—we save our clients money and time so that estates settle faster and easier. Each and every project is unique, which is why our personalized approach has made us the go-to estate clearing service for the greater southern California area.
We work to clear the property, clean and sanitize the home, and restore it so that it is sellable. Your family deserves professional help and support when tackling this tough situation. No matter how bad the condition of the home, let us streamline your loved one’s estate clearing so that your family can move forward to a place of hope and healing.
If you need help in order to clean out a house after someone dies, we encourage you to contact us or call 1-844-NO-CLUTTER (1-844-662-5888) for a free on-site estimate.
What Clients Say About Michelle
Dear Michelle: Thank you again. You and your team did a fantastic job for us. The guys did a great job on the freezer. What a nightmare. They said it was about the heaviest ever.
I'm still in shock by the bed our parents slept in. Makes me sad - so much family who cared but so desirous of privacy that quality of life was reduced. Take care of yourself - you see so much more of lives wasted and lives in pain than most people. Sometimes so hard to not let it effect you. Merry Christmas, happy holidays and much joy to you and yours in the new year. --Marianna Smoot,
Please accept our heartfelt appreciation for allowing us to select Michelle and her crew, of Clutter & Hoarding Pros, to clean our relative's home in Anaheim.
The project was extremely overwhelming for us to tackle on our own. Michelle was thorough, methodical, and very organized on how she (and her crew) handled the project. She was very professional, yet she was able to create an atmosphere that gave us total peace.
Not only did she involve us in the total project, but she didn't leave until her crew sorted, organized, and displayed the items for the garage/estate sale. We now have a mini-organized department store setting of items to sell. Michelle (and her crew) are very knowledgeable. They gave us advice on how to advertise the event on Craig's List, how to price the items, and how to run our sale, so that we can make money for the estate.
Truthfully, we don't know how we could have done this project without her expertise! Michelle also was very accurate on how she bid the job and the time that it would take to complete the project. We would not hesitate to refer her to others. --Ken & Christine Perry, Anaheim
