What To Expect When You Hire Professional Organizers

If you are a disorganized individual who loves collecting items, you must be determined to get your life in order in the upcoming year. Are your new year’s resolutions related to cleaning your closet or finally facing your cluttered garage?
Wait a minute. Did you have the exact same goals last year and the year-before but failed to make any progress? If yes, break the cycle of planning and not following through by hiring a professional organizer this time.
Here is what you can expect when you hire professional organizers.

Professional Organizers and Why You Should Hire One

It might seem like a daunting task, or just plain embarrassing, to bring someone in to help you get your house in order. However, hiring professional organizers might be the best decision you make in the coming year. Let 2021 be the year you get – and stay – organized. We’ve compiled a quick list of what to expect when you hire professional organizers and designers.

Varying Skills

When hiring a professional organizer, it’s important to know that some organizers specialize in specific areas, such as helping hoarders, assisting downsizers, scanning memorabilia, such as photos, and more. In contrast, others are generic and will help you sort through closets, garages, kitchens, etc. Before approaching an organizer, look into what your precise needs are and search accordingly.

Some companies handle a wide variety of skills and are capable of helping you from top to bottom, whether it’s a full remodel or simply a day of organizing and rearranging what you currently have.

What To Expect When You Hire Professional Organizers

Dealing With Your Belongings

A professional organizer will work with you to trace the items you want to keep and tell you what to do with unwanted items. If you want help with selling off, donating, or disposing of certain belongings, a professional organizer will be happy to help.  They’ll be able to help you identify what is useful, what can be repurposed, and what might need to be just thrown out.

However, keep in mind they’re not there to help you clean; they are there to organize. Hence, they will help you determine how your space can be utilized in the best possible manner and help you set it up.

Being an Active Participant

You’re going to be an active participant in the organization process. Therefore, don’t expect a professional organizer to get things done while you’re on a business trip or playing golf. Before and during the organization process, they’ll have a lot of questions, such as how you want to keep your stuff, what items you want to keep, and so on.

Experts like the designers and organizers at Dayton Designer Closets will inform you of the process during the initial consultation. We want you to be involved so that there are no surprises at the end – it’s important to us that you get everything you’re expecting.

No Judgment

Professional organizers understand that embarrassment and fear are the biggest hurdles for clients. Hence, you can rest assured that your feelings and possessions will be safe with them. Throughout the process, they’ll be nonjudgmental and respectful, especially when asking questions. They will undoubtedly tell you certain hard truths about aspects but will do so constructively and lovingly.

They’ve likely seen way worse than your house anyway! They take the emotion out of it and instead help you see the bigger picture – a clean and organized place that is easier to maintain.

Varying Fees

Some professional organizers charge by the project, others by the hour. Before embarking on the process, be sure to obtain a quote. A full-house organization project may cost you above $1,000. Specific tasks like garage sorting and a closet clean-out can cost you just a few hundred dollars, respectively. A simple kitchen organization session should be within your budget but talk to your organizer. They’ll give you all the costs upfront so that there aren’t any expensive surprises later.

Some professional organizers offer free initial consultations via phone. But try to find one who can visit you for free to conduct an in-person evaluation and provide a cost estimate.
