Address Our Mess is a professional specialty cleaning company that handles hoarding, clutter, sorting, removal and larger organizational projects. The company was started by Jeff Cohn and Josh Rafter after receiving calls asking for cleaning help and the removal of items in a home. But before “just jumping into” the hoarding clean up business, otherwise known as hoarding abatement, Jeff and Josh decided to make sure that Address Our Mess offered the best services by ensuring:
- An emphasis on the psychological component of the hoarder
- Compassion and non-judgment towards the hoarder by all employees
- Continual training and education for all employees from top experts on all areas of hoarding
- All vehicles do not mention hoarding or organizational services in order to protect the hoarder’s privacy
- All employees pass all background checks, including criminal and drug related checks
