Cypress Hoarding Cleanup Information - Audio_Hoarding_Cleanup_Buttons

I'm Eddie Evans and I offer Cypress hoarding cleanup services. My goal is to work myself out of work by getting you to the point of saying, "Well, that's enough, I can take over now." When that happens I'm pleased as punch and I hope you'll feel the same. In any event, you have my telephone number and now how to call me for more cleaning later.

If you're unsure about what to do or who to hire, you might consider spending some time with the ideas found here and elsewhere on this web site. For certain, if you hoard, then you have some serious issues at hand, like decision making, organizing, and letting go of those many objects that now hinder your movement and sense of well-being.

Who or What to Hire

If you need it done quickly, you need a hoarding cleanup crew. If you have time, want to save some money, and need control over the cleaning process, then a solo cleaner or two cleaners may do the trick.

I comes down to this when hiring a hoarding cleanup company: for this project, how much time do you have for this cleaning project; how much money do you have for this cleaning project; how much do you need to keep, how much organizing do you need, and how much actual cleaning do you need?

Once you've answered these questions, you know where you need to step back in and take control over your own organizing and cleaning practices; maybe your decisions are easy, like, throwing it all out because you're moving. Good. Maybe you're staying another 20 years, then you need to take control at some point and make cleaning and organizing habitual, like everyday as an ongoing process - - ouch!

What I Offer Cypress Residents and Businesses

I offer the same and similar hoarding cleanup services as other Cypress cleaning companies, but with some exceptions, of course. What makes my cleaning service different than the others is that I can clean alone, which saves you money, but costs you time. Some people also find the solo approach offers more flexibility. When you hire a crew you should expect the job to start and finish without break; with a solo cleaner you can call off the cleaning at any time and recall the cleaner later. This way you have time to consider what's going on, what you threw out and what you saved. Perhaps you decided to take on the task once the heavy lifting got done, once the big part got done, or you want your solo cleaner one day a week and so on. This make a lot of sense when you hire a solo cleaner and pay cash, out-of-pocket.

So a total move out is easy. It's the staying in the Cypress house decision making that raises so many issues.

Here's three ideas: Total Move out - Slow Removal and Organizing - Something in Between

  1. Total Move out - - If the hoarding cleaners are to remove everything from the residence, I call this a "move out". Move outs are cheaper because they take less time. They take less time because there's little decision-making to be made. Decision making becomes a problem because someone has to make a choice, keep it or throw it out. So when one decision to "throw everything out" is made, work moves quickly. The advantage of this approach is that it should be cheaper. Three young men or women working at a steady pace, taking breaks as needed, quickly empty a four bedroom house. Disadvantages are that they may throw stuff out that may have some sentimental value if not cash value.
  2. Slow Removal and Organizing - - If the hoarding cleaners can take longer, in order to recover items, the owner needs time to think about it. And this is fine in many cases, but then decisions get out of hand and we're back to where we started. So before long the owner is saving stuff that could have and should have been tossed out long ago. Perhaps it should never have been bought. Now you're paying mega-bucks to hoarding cleaners while you're debating whether or not to keep a 10 year-old torn T-shirt. More, hoarders have a problem with compulsive buying; remember the bumper sticker, "Shop shop until you drop!"? So recycling the same old thinking continues. Still though, with a moment to reflect some important items may be saved, but there must be a place for them, like a place for everything and everything in its place.
  3. Here's another option. If the responsible party wishes to remove everything from the home and place it in a backyard or garage, then empty the house (more-or-less), clean the house, then sort out those items that will remain in the home. Then the solid waste easily goes into the dumpster.

The Big Difference - Solo or Crew

  • Solo is slower, cheaper, more personal (but yes, I can bring in a crew)
  • Crew is much faster, more expensive, less personal

Again, if you have a large Cypress cleaning project and it needs to be done overnight or by the end of tomorrow evening, I may not be able to help you depending on the size of the project. If however, you hope to spend some time on the project and save some money, it may be a better option. Call me back when you're ready to resume.

More About Options

So what else makes one Cypress hoarding cleanup services any different than any other Cypress hoarding cleanup company services? I happen to offer feces cleanup, but that's another story.

In the end, qualitative differences and overall cleaning prices come into play.

Just how far down does the owner, the responsible party, wish cleaning to go, how deep? By "down, I mean, what degree of cleaning does the prospective customer have in mind? See the cleaning items list page for more on this.

The hours add up as does the cleaning expense, and one kitchen drawer can cost some serious money when it's caked with a 12 year-old lard and honey spill. In the end, who does a more thorough job of cleaning a house, condominium, apartment, mobile home, or even recreational vehicle. It's a question of what a property owner desires. It's also a question of what the property owner expects to pay. One note to consider, will a hoarding cleanup company's hired help have a vested interest in cleaning outcomes, or will a hoarding cleanup company's owner and solo cleaner have a vested interest in cleaning outcomes. It's pretty clear, especially when you have the solo cleaner's personal business telephone number to call any day, any hour.

Does a hoarding cleanup company promise to "clean the entire house." But what does this mean? (Again, I refer you to the cleaning list page if needed.) Here's some example items to consider when hiring a hoarding cleanup company:

  • Does cleanup include carpet vacuuming. What about carpet cleaning? And what does it mean to clean a carpet that was once used for hoarded items? Does it mean that a truck mount carpet cleaning outfit will spray and extract cleaning solution on the carpet? Does it mean the carpet will be scrubbed and rinsed? A carpet cleaner will charge $500 to $2000 to "clean" a carpet once soiled by insects and rodents. In fact, some Cypress carpet cleaning companies will not clean a carpet soiled following a hoarding cleanup.
  • Does a cleanup mean the bathtub, the toilet, and the bathroom sink will be scrubbed, rinsed, and disinfected?
  • Does cleanup mean the kitchen sink, areas surrounding the kitchen sink, kitchen cabinets, refrigerator inside and out, stove inside and out, microwave inside and out, and other appliances in the kitchen will be thoroughly cleaned inside and out?
  • Does a hoarding cleanup mean that windows will be cleaned, inside and out?
  • Does a Cypress hoarding cleanup mean doors will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected?
  • Does a Cypress hoarding cleanup mean that light switches, pictures frames, and other miscellaneous items will be cleaned?
  • As a Cypress hoarding cleanup company offer to polish natural stone like marble, travertine, and other types of natural stone? What about that natural stone on the bathroom sink, is that part of the cleanup?

The point of all these questions is get to the point: what does it mean when you agree to a "hoarding cleanup." Does it simply mean to remove all those hoarding materials that have hindered a "normal" lifestyle? Or does it mean a thorough house cleanup in which every horizontal and vertical surface in the house, in the dwelling, receives direct cleaning attention. For example, how would you go about, what would you expect from, a thorough cleaning of a "junk drawer"?.

After all, many items in the junk drawer still have value' they just happen to be in the junk drawer because there was no other place to put them. Stuff was placed in the junk drawer because it was valuable at one time and when it was placed in the junk drawer, the items user intended to use it in the future. But here it is, 20 years later in the junk drawer taking up space and time. So a decision is made, destroy or keep it. If you keep it, then you must find another place for it; perhaps it's a duplicate too, but you don't know because of all the clutter on top of stuff.

So in terms of a hoarding cleanup, it's best to make a decision early on. Plan to throw it all out. And then as it's being thrown out be prepared to sit something something aside, but before you put something aside, now we are going to place it. And once it's aside, what about throwing it out if and when you find a duplicate?

An evaluation place?

What about an evaluation place? It's important place to "retrieve stuff" as everything is being thrown out. When the decision is made to throughout everything, inevitably the order the size that something is just too valuable to throw out, so it is set aside from the stream of "solid wastes, trash" making its way through the door to the dumpster. Then the item is revisited for more evaluation.

Sometimes during hoarding cleanup it's more than evident that everything must go into the dumpster or to the landfill by trailer or truck. Everything becomes contaminated by cockroaches, spiders, gnats, and even sow bugs. What about rodent droppings from rats and mice? How are you going to clean all that stuff in any reasonable time. How are you going to retrieve accounts that has rat feces in every crevice? You cannot do so in any reasonable manner.

Hoarding Defined

Hoarding by most definitions will mean keeping stuff beyond its usefulness. Accordingly will also mean buying, keeping, and storing objects that our ready have a place on a property in storage.

Accordingly will mean a loss of control over one's stuff.

Accordingly will also mean that once the hoarded stuff is removed, the hoarding cleanup is complete.

Cleanup will mean removal of those items defined as "hoarded." A cleanup must invoke the meaning of the term destroy. For he cleanup to begin, the hoarder must come to the point in their life to make decisions about destroying the personal property. Once they have agreed to destroy hoarded items, cleanup follows. But in the context of hoarding cleanup, the cleanup cannot continue or even begin until the hoarder decides to destroy a great quantity of their homes contents.
