Moving Seniors – Rx for Clearing Houses

Debris Removal and Moving Cleans

Moving seniors out of a home, this time the lady of the house was going into a care facility because of Alzheimer’s. I was told this was the reason for the downsize, they did not need to, as when I began clearing the home I kept finding duplicates and triplicates of the same books or items and realized that she has simply forgotten and purchased another one.

The house was sold, the family had taken what they wanted, the auction houses had been in, and so had friends of the family but everything and everyone  had taken longer than they thought and still there was an incredible amount of “stuff” The family had had enough so Style Organization was called as the last to attend to the house. We ended up having a tight time frame and had only two days!  We started early and stayed late. We like to donate as much as possible but with time being an issue could not donate everything so a waste bin was ordered and then a second as we ended up filling two waste bins! The first was the larger items of mattresses and box springs. On the first day everything was sorted and bagged for donations and put into the car for delivery to the charity shop. The garbage was put into the bin and as soon as one room was cleared, it was cleaned. It took two ten hours days and we worked through lunch which was just as well as it was done with 10 minutes over the clock.
