Before and After
Staying clean and organized can be very challenging for some people. The use of professionals in some extreme cases can be required to get back to standards when it comes to cleanliness. Some people have a hard time letting go of items and end up accumulating stuff uncontrollably. They hold on to stuff that use up valuable space in their homes, offices etc... They often struggle managing those items that end up all over the place creating mounds of junk and chaos for the living space. They are called hoarders.
If you are living with a hoarder and you are not one yourself, you know how hard it is to try to convince them to get rid of some of those unnecessary items that have no place in your decor. Purging, getting rid of that clutter in your home, bedroom, office etc... at least once a year is a must and keeping what you have organized is also necessary or else you end up buried underneath all that stuff or spend hours looking for that important document that you just can't find.
