Helping Someone Remove Excessive Debris From Their Home

Business Blog

If you have a loved one who you believe is a "hoarder", you are most likely concerned about their living situation. If this person had agreed to take the first step in getting help with their problem, they most likely agreed to have their home cleaned out in an attempt to start a lifestyle where they can keep it in this condition. Here are some tips you can use should you decide to step in and help your loved one with the battle of cleaning out their home.

Call A Cleaning Service

A cleaning service will be extremely helpful to have on-site during the process of removing trash from the household. They will have the appropriate supplies on hand to help with the cleanup of any type of debris that has accumulated on the furniture, walls, appliances, and floors. They will also have access to materials that are considered "green" if your loved one does not wish to use chemical agents of any type within their home. The cleaning service will be able to give recommendations regarding the types of processes that will need to be done to remove stains or set in debris appropriately.

Find Out About Packing Supplies

It is best to have a variety of packing materials on hand for items that are to be given away to charity or sold. As your loved one looks through their belongings, they can place them inside of labeled plastic storage bins to be packaged to go to their appropriate destinations. Use a thick, black marker to on large labels and affix them to the sides of containers. Cardboard boxes can also be used if desired. As soon as boxes or bins are filled, remove them from your loved one's property so they do not feel the urge to remove items they had already placed inside. 

Enlist Help From A Garbage Service

There will most likely be a great deal of trash to remove from the hoarder's home. A dumpster service should be contacted to drop off a container on the property for the collection of household waste. It is also a good idea to ask the service if they are able to pick up recyclables. If they do not have containers available for this purpose, it will be necessary to bring these items to a recycling center on your own. Make sure packing materials are available to contain these items so you can transport them in your personal vehicle.

An Easter Celebration

Growing up, I was extremely close to my family. In fact, I lived with my parents and my sister until I married my husband eleven years ago. Unfortunately, I moved seventy-five long miles away from my family after my wedding. But I still visit my childhood home at least once each month. Our growing family also still celebrates all of the major holidays including Easter. Because my husband and I plan to start a family soon, we hope to begin hosting more family gatherings at our home. When this takes happens, I know I will need help cleaning my house. On this blog, I hope you will discover how hiring cleaning services can help you plan a stress-free Easter celebration.
