Hoarding can be a sensitive topic and serious situation to work through, but our team is trained by the number one hoarding expert in America, Matt Paxton from TV series, “Hoarders.” We use insight and techniques shared by experts to help a hoarder gain back their space and, in turn, their lives.

about our hoarding and estate clean up services

A hoarding clean up is more about compassion than cleaning.

After eye-opening training classes with Matt Paxton in 2014 and years of practice, our team is highly certified and trained for ‘hoarding and estate cleanups’. Our crew has knowledge and skills backed by the most experienced hoarding expert in America. Our crews are accustomed to cleaning up big messes of all kinds. Our expertise about hoarding, and how to help a hoarder, are reaching new levels of understanding.

Each hoarding or estate cleaning is handled differently. Sometimes we clear pathways to make the homeowner safer, or just a room, and sometimes the whole house is sorted through and cleaned. There’s a very wide range of services based on your needs.
