The death of a parent often sends families into a tailspin of emotions. However, as families begin to heal, they are faced with how to settle the estate. This can include disposing of unwanted items and sorting through keepsakes, which may often be intimidating due to the grief, combined with the need for hard work and making tough choices. It can be a major burden to clean out the home of a deceased parent.
At Clutter & Hoarding Pros, it's important for our clients to understand they are not facing the difficult situation all alone.
Our specialty is cleaning out the estates of the deceased. We focus primarily on homes that were occupied by people exhibiting behaviors associated with hoarding. This is not like a regular junk removal service because we carefully approach estates using compassion and try to help families reach their unique goals.
For example, its not unusual for clients to find special keepsakes or items of great value buried underneath all the clutter. In these types of situations, we will collaborate with family as we sort, clean and organize items, while discarding the items they don't want. Other clients may want a complete overhaul of the home so it can be put up for sale.
Estate clearing is a difficult process by itself, but what do you do if you're dealing with a hoarding situation at the same time? Excessive clutter can be challenging, both physically and emotionally, for loved ones. How do you get through the process of cleaning a home without getting overwhelmed? How can you possibly do it all, especially if there are sanitation concerns?
Since we can complete our home remediation in a matter of days, rather than weeks, our clients save both money and time. Estates are settled much easier and faster. We understand each project is a unique situation; that’s why we take a personalized approach. This is what sets us apart in the estate cleaning industry.
We work diligently to clear out the clutter and the property, while restoring what is reusable or sellable. We understand professionalism is necessary to provide help and support in tackling tough situations like these. It doesn’t matter how bad of a condition the home is in. Call us and let us help streamline the estate of your loved one to allow your family to move forward into a place where they can heal and restore hope.
Please contact us if you need help cleaning out a house!
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
