Learn to help others

From television shows to the daily headlines, “Hoarding” is becoming a household word. If you run a service-based business, you have walked into a home seriously affected by hoarding, and you know the topic is not going away. Now that media has helped hoarding become mainstream, you are seeing people asking for more help with their extreme cases. As families age and people pass on, we will see thousands of homes that need extreme cleaning, serious de-cluttering, estate cleaning and/or hoarding clean-up.

You’ve seen Matt Paxton & Clutter Cleaner tackle the most challenging houses on A&E’s Hoarders and we’ve been doing the same for families around the United States for years. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to help all the people that reach out to us for help.

“Clutter Cleaner & Matt Paxton is the first company we refer to our clients when they need to downsize, de-clutter or move and we have NEVER been disappointed with the results they produce for our clients regardless of the size of the job. The comments we have gotten back from our clients that have use them are exceptional. Clutter cleaner has always exceeded our expectations and have surpassed the expectations of our clients. I would HIGHLY recommend Matt and Clutter Cleaner for any moving, downsizing or de-cluttering job.”
