Hoarded Home Cleanings: Experience, Sensitivity & Compassion
When it comes to the sensitive subject of hoarded home situations, Maid In California provides expert and seasoned advice and complete cleaning services. From Bio Hazard cleaning, to help with organization, our compassionate cleaning teams have the training to do this work skillfully and quickly — with complete respect for everyone involved. Always customized service: does the home need to be completely cleaned out or does it need to simply comply with an order to clean or be evicted?
Maid In California Is Here To Help When You’re Not Sure Where to Turn?
Do you or a family member have a lot of things in the home and it is making it hard or impossible to live life fully and safely? Do you need help but just don’t know where to turn? Maid In California is here to help. Our owner, Debbie Kerr, is on the Executive Board of the Orange County Task Force on Hoarding. She personally consults each and every client that contacts the office. We have the resources and knowledge to help people with all levels of hoarding disorder. Most important, we move at the pace they are most comfortable with. Of course, we can also work quickly for cases that are an emergency or encounter challenging deadlines.
Maid In California Specializes in Hoarding Clean up
Maid in California understands that there is more to a hoard than what may look like a pile of junk to anyone but the hoarder. We know that throughout the clean-up there will be items of monetary and sentimental value. Important financial and legal documents may need to be found. Maid In California will help locate those specified items and return them to their owner.
What to Expect When Maid In California Cleans A Hoarded Home
With Maid In California, expect service that is compassionate, respectful, but is also committed to completing the task given. We understand that everyone is different as is their case. When Maid In California completes a hoarded home clean-up it can be a complete clean out or simply organization. Each situation receives a customized cleaning plan that is discussed prior to implementation.
We provide comprehensive services include the following optional features:
Assessment – With an initial site visit or detailed photos, Maid In California will begin assessing the scope of the project, the ultimate goal, a plan and a process to get you there.
Resources – Maid In California has all the resources you need to achieve your goals — from light cleaning to Bio Hazard.
Donation Pick Up – Maid In California has special relationships with many local charities that can pick up and donate any unwanted items. We let the client choose the charities that are near and dear to their heart. Many we have worked with include: Working Wardrobes, Salvation Army, Goodwill, Mercy House, Women’s Transitional centers and Patriots and Paws and many Veterans Services. We find that sometimes it is easier for a person to give away their items to charitable causes they personally believe in. Maid In California works closely with the client to determine the best place for their items.
Hauling – For any items unwanted by the client and charities we can arrange for the rest to be picked up and hauled away.
Cleaning – After the removal of unwanted items, we send in a specialized team to deep clean the affected areas to ensure that the environment is fresh and healthy. Afterward, we can schedule a regular cleaning team to be sure the home remains that way.
Compassion, Understanding and Discretion – We know that a hoarding situation is enormously stressful for everyone involved, and that a clean-up can create even more feelings of stress. Maid In California works with everyone affected to make the process as pain free and inclusive as possible.
