Do you know someone who’s trapped by clutter and needs help taking steps toward clean up their life?
A hoarding clean-up, professional organizing and mental health support team are offering someone in the Lower Mainland a chance to take advantage of their combined complimentary services. With the potential to become an annual event, the Clean Sweep Home Transformation is a two-day, full-scale content removal, de-cluttering, organizing and extreme cleaning effort that will collectively employ volunteers of Surrey-based 1st Hoarding Clean Up, Good Riddance Professional Organizing Solutions and several other community partners.
“Hoarding is a hidden issue. Often families of these sufferers are not even aware until something traumatic takes place that thrusts the home’s condition to the forefront, becoming a stressful and compounding ordeal,” says Stephanie Jones, project manager with 1st Hoarding Clean Up and co-coordinator of the first-annual contest.
Entrants must submit a brief story and a minimum of eight photographs. The winner will get a compassionate and professional extreme home makeover that will include disposal and donation sorting, as well as cleaning and possible structural remediation.
“As a community, we can come together to organize the resources necessary to assist families that may not be able to help themselves, and would otherwise continue to live in distress.” says Brian Woronuik, President of 1st Hoarding Clean Up.
All entries must be submitted to by May 15 at www.1stHoardingCleanUp.com/services/contest
