The house in the picture above represents any number of things:
a. The room may belong to a hoarder
b. The room may belong to someone too lazy to clean
c. The room may belong to a person who is depressed
Whatever the issue, the person who owns such a room is out of control in some way and that state manifests itself in the condition of the house. Our homes are our sanctuary and can very well affect our mood and ability to think! It’s difficult to function in a pig pen.
Regardless of the reason, there are rooms like the one above in more homes than you would imagine. And that would include homes in all types of neighborhoods and economic situations.
At UpperCrustMaids, LLC, we actually have encountered such homes. We have received frantic phone calls and emails from people who desire a clean home but for any number of reasons, cannot bring themselves to clean their own home and are searching for help.
In some cases, we are able to clean the homes over a period of time. And in other cases, we advise the person to first hire a clutter specialist to help them to sort out and throw things away…and we tell them that we could come in afterwards.
My advice to people who have homes that look similar to the room above is to first rule out depression and the compulsive condition called “hoarding” because those conditions require psychological counseling, possibly medication…and then help from a cleaning company.
However, if a person determines that the reason for their home being in that condition is attributable to laziness, lack of time to clean, or just a natural proclivity towards sloppiness, UpperCrust Maids, LLC would be willing to step in and help.
Note that we will ONLY take on such a client for ongoing service if the person agrees to weekly cleanings. We have learned that people who will not clean will allow their homes to revert all the way back to its original condition and two weeks is a long time to go without having a professional cleaning company come in.
So…if you are reading this blog and you know in your heart that you have no intentions of cleaning your own home and that you don’t even own cleaning products and/or equipment, give us a call. Note that we won’t be able to get it clean in one session. It may take 4 sessions, all charged at our “deep cleaning” rate.
Afterwards, we would take on the client, but ONLY as a once per week client. We will not take on such a client for biweekly or monthly service.
Give us a call and we will work with you. 301-322-7112…
Because we want your home to look like THIS:
