When you hear "professional organizer," your favorite reality TV shows about pack rats and hoarders may pop to mind. Professional organizers definitely help those people, but there's much more to the profession than that. Organizers can help those of us too busy, too tired, or too stressed to deal with our clutter ourselves. Here's what Professional Organizers really do, and how Organizers may be able to help you.
What Organizers do
Professional Organizers offer a wide variety of services, from reorganizing and creating a functional closet or other room, to unpacking and organizing a home after a recent move. Professional Organizers also educate clients to help them understand why a space is organized the way it is, and how to maintain that organization for a long time.
For homeowners, a Professional Organizer might declutter, plan and reorganize the space of a room or entire home, provide personal shopping services, improve paper management, or coach in time-management, or goal-setting.
Things we don't do
It's easy to blur the lines between organization and something else, like general contract work or interior design, but as stated above, there are clear differences. While we are experts in our area, we do not cross into other areas, and that's why it's important for you to understand what we don't do.
We do not provide services such as construction, installation, general contract labor, electrician's work, interior design, graphic design, junk removal, painting, waste disposal, cleaning services, sales of unwanted or extra items, etc.
While we do not perform the jobs listed above, these requests are made very frequently and we can help you research to identify the right professionals for other needs. Such professionals as closet companies, movers, art appraisers, garage companies, painters, auction houses, interior designers, realtors, organizing products and stores, junk removal companies, shredding companies, consignment stores, photo & paper scanning companies, contractors, etc.
