What is Professional Organizing?

September 15, 20223 min read

You might think of reality TV when you hear the term "professional organizer." Professional office and space organizers can assist with both significant and minor undertakings, as well as the psychology of clutter. For homeowners keen on decluttering and arranging their homes, a professional organizer can assist in setting goals strategically in an organizer board for home and office projects and helping clients through the process.

Who is a professional organizer?

A professional organizer is a specialist in maximizing space and usability in a home. They can assist a wide range of customers or focus on particular audiences (such as children), conditions (such as hoarding), or materials (like paperwork). A professional organizer assists homeowners in decluttering and organizing their things, no matter what the situation.

Professional organizers are skilled problem-solvers that specialize in assisting individuals with organizing their homes, offices, and spaces such as storage units. The optimal application is for residential areas, and they carry out procedures necessary to fulfill goals of collaboration with their clients. Professional organizers' ultimate objective is to improve their clients' lives by assisting them in making the most out of their available space.

Why should you hire a professional organizer for your home?

A homeowner might get advice on house organizing and be inspired to consider new ways to use their space by hiring a professional organizer. Additionally, they will learn valuable and long-lasting organizational techniques when professional organization services have been completed. In other words, these experts don't just show up and arrange someone's house. They teach their techniques using practical methods so that their clients may continue the work in the future.

Many homeowners find themselves hiring a professional when a project is either too time-consuming to complete or they lack the know-how of where to start or how to go about it. Oftentimes, an expert organizer can be an accountability partner to get the job done.

How much will it cost you?

Homeowners who are unsure how much it will cost to hire a professional organizer to help with clutter may be pleasantly surprised to hear that the cost can be rather reasonable. A homeowner can engage a professional to spend a day devising and implementing an organizational strategy for typically less than $500. Most professionals bill by the hour ($55 to $100 per hour), and the average length of a project is 4 to 10 hours. Most companies are sole proprietors but often employ several organizers to tackle larger and more involved projects.

Benefits of hiring a professional organizer

A professional organizer can assist you in getting rid of things you no longer need, and they also help set up methods to keep you organized.

A professional organizer will assist a client in making decisions on using spaces once home organization goals have been established. It's frequently essential to get rid of some things—which isn't always simple—to restructure rooms for more significant function and efficiency. They take on the task of decluttering by asking open-minded questions and offering candid comments to help the client make decisions about their things. They ultimately help their clients think critically about how, and why they keep things and whether those things are still useful or necessary. Professional organizers can help plan the disposal, recycling, donation, or sale of undesirable items.

They sort after decluttering to maximize space and will also discuss and educate clients on a system to interact with things and add or replace materials as necessary to maintain things.
