Outside of wiping off shelves and dusting the spaces that are being organized, no. Housekeeping is not a service that is not offered by The Ohm.
It depends on the size of the room and its current state. I generally work between 9:00 and 4:00 and complete most spaces in that time frame. Larger projects such as kitchens, offices, garages or heavily cluttered areas may take longer and require multiple days.
No judgement here! I’m here to help. And honestly, there isn’t a thing you have in your house that would shock me. Quick reminder that I used to go into all kinds of homes to examine dead bodies and sometimes the environments were the literal worst you could imagine. Your cluttered closet is no big deal.
This is where a consultation (virtual or in person) comes into the picture. We will discuss your needs and prioritize what is the most critical for your family and your sense of peace. One space at a time. I’ll help decide where we will begin.
A $100 non-refundable scheduling binder is required at booking. That will go towards your overall costs. An invoice will be sent via email following the session with the hourly rate and products used (with the binder deducted). Rates begin at $75 per hour.
Occasionally there may be seasonal booking specials, however, there are no set discounts.
Absolutely! Gift certificates are available to purchase. You can find more details on the RATES + INFO page. Make sure the recipient is receptive, motivated and ready to get organized otherwise they may never cash it in.
I service the Florida panhandle and Alabama neighbors. I do travel and will charge a travel fee dependent on the location and distance from my typical service area.
This is what the $100 non-refundable scheduling binder is for. I understand that things come up (mom of 2 here) and I will do my absolute best to re-schedule you as soon as possible. I am currently booking 1-2 months in advanced so it may be a wait to get you back on the schedule. It takes time and preparation to get ready for each unique space including pre-purchasing products and storage solutions. A last minute cancellation does make it difficult to immediately take on another client in your place. The earlier you can reach out to reschedule, the better. In addition, if I happen to cancel (mom of 2 here) then the $100 scheduling binder will be refunded or applied to the next scheduling day.
Upon booking inquiry, I require 3-5 photographs of your most troubling areas for review. Most spaces can be prioritized and scheduled based on photographs. In person consultations can be scheduled (usually 30-45 minutes) if that is preferred or if measurements are required.
I will remove any donation items (within reason) when I leave. I bring a small enclosed trailer with me for this very purpose. I work with local charitable organizations and do my best to sort and rehome your items so they go to the best places.
Honestly all over. It takes time to find the right items and sometimes restocking can be an issue so I do my best to get enough products at the time I prepare for your space.
I book between the hours of 9 and 4, however, most sessions do not last longer than 5 hours as productivity drops off when fatigue sets in. I want to ensure that my clients get the most out of their scheduled sessions including the sharpness of the organizers brain!
Nope. I often work solo. It’s much easier in spaces like pantries, kitchens and linen closets because there are less sentimental items that need decisions on. Spaces like personal closets and offices though, I may need pop-ins from the client for input on keep or donate. It helps tremendously so there’s not a large pile for you to review when you get home.
Yes and no. In order for me to really make a difference in your home, purging is always step one. I will never force a client to let go of something they aren’t ready to though.
Pre-purging is wonderful!
Don’t be nervous. Just be prepared to have a more efficient organized space! It will take some decisions on letting go of the unnecessary, but it’ll be 100% worth the investment.
