The Complete Guide to Professional Home Organizing: What it is and why you need it.

Updated: Jun 19, 2020

What exactly is professional home organizing and how can you tell if you need it?

If you’re overwhelmed by the clutter in your home, look no further!

This handy guide will explain what professional organization is, how to tell if you need it and how to hire the right professional organizer for the job.

What is professional organizing?

It’s hard to fully describe what it is I do as a Professional Organizer.

Essentially, professional home organization is the same as regular home organization, but with the added benefit of a trained, unbiased professional to help you sort through and dispose of your items, as well as help you with some of the heavy lifting.

Elderly folks, busy parents, and anyone else who has a big project but little time can benefit from professional organization, and that’s when Clutterless Home Solutions comes in!

As professional organizers, we wear a lot of hats: project manager, heavy-lifting expert, personal therapist, emotional support, puzzle master and cheerleader!

At the heart of it, a true professional organizer is someone who wants to help people feel better in their home and make their space more efficient.

Whatever the space you’re wanting to transform, we find out the results you’re looking for and help you achieve that goal.

How does the process work?

The process usually starts with a short chat about the project – this is where we can get acquainted and talk about your number one goal for the space!

After our initial chat, we schedule a 15-20 minute video consultation so we can give you a rough estimate to get to the result you want. From there we set a schedule for your project.

If you’re looking to declutter your space and purge, you’re totally welcome to! It’s your home, so we are there to help you through the process whichever way you’d like! You can be a part of the entire process from the categorization to the decluttering.

If you’re looking to simply have a space organized by someone, you can sit back and relax. Aside from the occasional question, a Professional Organizer should be able to create an organized space with little input from you (if that’s what you prefer).

Why hire a Professional Organizer?

We don’t just help you get organized, we help you stay organized. This is one of the main benefits to hiring a professional.

Starting and stopping projects isn’t effective – many of my clients tell me this is the never-ending loop they’re stuck in.

That’s why we help you establish an “organizational foundation”.

It’s one of the most important parts about getting organized and maintaining organization!

Why can’t I do this with help from friends and family?

A lot of my clients mention to me that they have tried to get family members to help them through the process.

While having family or friends help can be a nice gesture, it can also bog down the process significantly – you can get caught up in nostalgia and end up getting too distracted to finish the project.

Having a professional around helps keep you on track and prevents you from falling into another never-ending clutter loop.
