This process can be difficult and painful both for seniors and their loved ones. Saying goodbye to a home filled with memories and/or departing with treasured possessions can be emotionally and physically draining, especially for those that have physical limitations or medical issues.
Our respectful and trained staff help you by:
- Separating and returning valuables
- Recycling appliances and electronics
- Removing furniture and mattresses
- Removing trash, hazard waste, yard waste and construction waste
- Providing resources for estate sales
- Identifying and transporting items for donation
- Deep cleaning health-related risk areas
Our trained experts know how to deal with fire hazards, chemical hazards, blocked walkways, risks from falling piles of items, structural damage to the home , and unsanitary conditions from molds, bacteria, dust, dirt, animals and bug infestation.
We understand that the possessions in your home aren’t junk or trash and have meaning to you. After we meet with you, we put a plan in place before we start so that your needs and emotions are considered to get your home into a livable condition.
It's About Respect
Privacy is important in the cleaning process, and our goal is to transform your living condition into a respectful living space that you can be proud of. We have the processes to prevent others from ever knowing you had an issue in the first place. Best of all, you won’t see the word “junk” or “hoarder” on any of our vehicles in front of your house.
It is important to note that we do not provide psychological treatment as part of our service.
Who you choose to help you when you have a hoarder situation is extremely important.
There are often health, safety and legal issues involved in the cleanup process. And, when a legal order for cleanup becomes part of the process, time becomes a major issue.
Working with the professionals at Hands On Services provides you with the following benefits:
- Experience – We have years of experience cleaning out and repairing hoarder houses.
- Company Insured – We carry all of the appropriate insurances to give you the peace of mind that we will do your job the right.
- Family-Owned – We are committed and dedicated to our common goal of providing you with the best service possible.
Once you have located your new home, our professional staff has years of experience helping people just like you to sort through your treasured possessions.
