Compulsive hoarding (also referred to as hoarding disorder) is a behavioral pattern that affects many individuals in our country. It involves the excessive acquisition of goods with an accompanying unwillingness to do away with them. As a result, their items consume a significant amount of space within their home.

Compulsive hoarding carries side effects like impaired functioning, health risks, and economic struggles. Friends and family also feel the stress and pain of those afflicted with hoarding disorder. With such little space, hoarders cannot complete basic household activities such as cleaning, sleeping, and cooking.

Schedule A Hoarding Transition Service


Hoarding Services

Hoarding is a complex, overwhelming effect of stress. It is a significant part of our transition services. Time and time again, we help others find a way to declutter and re-focus on what’s important: the condition of their home and the safety of their belongings.

Not to mention that hoarding has significant health and economic effects, too. It can be difficult to breathe when many items are taking up your space.  Expired or dirty belongings can carry bacteria – and sickness may follow. Plus, excess spending will take a toll on your financial standing.

Despite how broad the definition is, hoarding requires a thorough, detailed process that ensures optimal safety and cleanliness. Our comprehensive hoarding assistance includes:

Packing: Our team will work with you to make your hoarding situation bearable. We first observe your home with the assistance of our Transition Assessment Evaluation and then determine a plan of action. Packing ensures all of your belongings are accounted for while condensing the clutter.

During the process, we take great care to ensure the items getting packed will stay in good shape and move-in ready. Whether you’re downsizing or moving to a bigger home, we take the time to pack efficiently and comprehensively.

Our staff has many collective hours working with hoarders, so you can have confidence that we can pack your items safely, economically, and efficiently. Then, your items are safe to move to the next destination after we’re finished packing them.

Cleaning: Hoarding can take a toll on a home, to be sure. As items sit there, they collect dust, bacteria, and other unsightly things that can cause sickness. Packing is just one part of removing the items from your house. We also have to take care of any mess they left behind.

Our team will clean your house and ensure there are no safety or health hazards. Any excess bacteria, dirt, and other side effects will get cleared. Finally, your home will have a personality again and truly feel like your own space again.

From simple cleanups to more involved jobs, LifeCycle Transitions has the skills and experience to ensure your mess becomes a thing of the past. Welcome to your new, clean, livable space!

Moving: Whether you are downsizing or moving to a bigger place, one thing’s for sure, you have to get there. LifeCycle is happy to lend a helping hand and make the process as smooth as possible. We have experience getting homes market-ready so you can have confidence in our team.

After organizing, cleaning, and other maintenance services, we’ll get you on track and ensure your move is a success by placing you in the hands of trusted moving professionals. You’ll make your way to your destination safely and with all you need for the trip.

LifeCycle Transitions is ready to make your home market ready, and we won’t forget to take care of your next move in the process. We’ll set you up for success as you move on.

Organizing: Hoarding often results in great, scattered, and seemingly unmanageable clutter. LifeCycle’s experience with hoarders in the past has taught us that though these situations seem daunting, the job can still get done. One of the first steps is taking a step back and examine how to make the items more manageable.

Categorization helps hoarders decide what’s important, what can leave, and what is somewhere in the middle. We’ll take the time to place items in their respective subcategories and keep everything together. Once the groups get established, hoarders can understand what they have already.

Decluttering: Without decluttering, hoarders would have a mighty lot to manage. Decluttering ensures items get taken care of without removing them entirely. There can be many levels of hoarding, therefore it is a much more complicated issue than some would believe and has many layers. 

Some clients require a complete overhaul, but we are open to assist with smaller scale projects. A quick decluttering can also keep living in your space or making a move to a new one easier, and our team has performed services for hundreds of clients.

Estate sales: When you put your home on the market, buyers and realtors expect that it is in top condition and ready for the purchaser(s) to move in to as soon as they can. Still, there is a lot that needs to get accomplished before your home is move-in ready.

From cleaning to organization, to presentation, we’ll ensure your home looks and feels its best. You will be able to move on while someone else can enjoy all of the opportunities your home presents to them.

Hoarding Intervention: Hoarding Intervention Assistance is a specialized service that requires unique skills and expertise for a successful result and change. Since our inception in 2010, LifeCycle Transitions has helped hundreds of hoarders and their loved ones and set them on the path to success. Our team’s experience enables us to clean homes that may seem overwhelming. Our team of trained professionals’ goal is to restore not only clients’ homes but also their lives.

LifeCycle Transitions has several hoarding cleanup options ranging from a thorough, complete clean out to the recovery of valuable items. Our hoarding intervention assistance process involves:

On-Site Home Evaluation

When we get the address, we pay attention to the details and get all of the facts in order after an assessment. Through our Transition Evaluation Assessment, we can assemble a plan of action targeted specifically to your needs.

Provision of Quote

Once the evaluation gets conducted, we list our services and prices beforehand, so you understand what our services entail and what fees will get paid. There are no surprises. We can get a quote to you within 24 hours of evaluation.

Commencement of The Project

After the quote gets delivered, we assign one of our professional, compassionate staff members to handle the clean-up from start to finish. Whether it is a moderate declutter or daunting hoarding situation, LifeCycle Transitions will get it done. Our staff has hundreds of hours of on-scene experience with hoarders.

LifeCycle Transitions’ hoarding intervention assistance is more than getting rid of old items. Our experts will sort your contents, ensuring they are all recovered. Whether they are valuables, sentimental items, crucial documents, bills, or photographs, we’ll take care of them.

We offer 24-hour phone and email support to provide answers to your questions.
