Hiring a Professional Organizer

Organized walk in closet and text "Hiring a professional organizer"

You might think that organizing your home is a simple task that you can take on yourself, but when it comes down to it, you don’t have the time or energy to go through every room in your house. You may also have strong sentimental attachments to certain items, and the thought of moving or getting rid of them isn’t something that’s ever crossed your mind (or if it has, you quickly dismissed it). There are quite a few home organization companies out there, and their consultants could help you decide what to keep and what to sell, as well as what to toss and what to store. At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we’re always here to provide exceptional self-storage, and in this post, we’ll look at the benefits of hiring a professional organizer.

No Sentimental Bonds

dreamstime_xl_11867427One of the best advantages of hiring a home organizer is that he or she will not have the sentimental and emotional bonds to your stuff that you may have. They can come at the project from a completely objective point of view, evaluating things such as if there is enough space for a certain item or whether or not you use an object on a regular basis. They will (hopefully) also take into consideration your feelings regarding an item, but they can help you truly assess whether you need to keep something, or if it’s only your emotional attachment that’s keeping it in the house.

Save Time

You simply may not have the time to organize and arrange your bedroom or set up your living room the way you want it. Most home organizers won’t move your furniture for you, but they can come up with storage solutions for books, magazines, clothes, and more. If your closets are driving you absolutely crazy, or your kids never seem to pick up their toys in the playroom, a professional can provide options that make it easier to clean up during the week rather than leaving it all for the weekend.

Making Lists

Perhaps you’re not very good at making lists and that’s the main reason why you feel so unorganized. A professional organizer is often very good at creating lists, whether it’s for a certain room or it’s for certain items that need to be donated or stored in a local storage unit. They can help you determine what needs to be moved into storage, even if it’s only seasonally, as well as when it’s time to get rid of items, since you haven’t used or looked them in years. Stuff can not only take up physical space – it can also occupy mental and emotional space, especially when you begin to think about the chore of going through it all and deciding on what to keep.

Make Your Home More Livable

If you don’t feel like your home is livable because of all the stuff in it, a home organizer can do wonders for your house. Perhaps you feel like there is no flow to a certain room, or that there’s too much clutter in one corner, and a professional has the expertise to help you find the balance you want.
