Cleaning Tips

Make a cleaning tote to make things easier for the holiday.

You’ll want to grab a couple of caddies and fill it with all of your favorite cleaning supplies. Place one in each room of your house. No more running all over to find the things that you need. Plus having everything in one place will save a ton of time.  Cleaning wipes, disinfecting sprays and microfiber cloths are a just few items that I would recommend having on hand.

In addition to excessive clutter, other serious effects of compulsive hoarding can include fire or health hazards and infestations. It also may become impossible to prepare or eat food in the home or to have appliance, electrical or plumbing repairs conducted because service technicians cannot enter the home.Read More »Cleaning up a life of hoarding
