Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose DFW decluttered?
DFW Decluttered LLC is fully insured, accredited by the Better Business Bureau and a member of NAPO, the National Association for Productivity and Organizing Professionals. What that means is we are trained and experienced in organizing for residential homes and small businesses. We offer a full array of services to help you not only with organizing your space, but to also help you continue to declutter and organize through maintenance programs and selling potential collectibles.
Also, we understand that real life is messy! Once you live in a decluttered and organized environment, you will not only feel less stressed and overwhelmed but it also helps bring a sense of calm and order to your home.
How much does it cost?
On average, organizers in DFW range from $60-$90 per hour. Instead of charging by the hour, I charge by the project. I found that typically my clients feel a lot less stressed when they have a finite number of how much a space(s) will cost. This also helps alleviate pressure to make decisions while going through some of the harder things to declutter.
Some projects require a team, ranging from 2 to 5 people. During the consultation I will evaluate the space and make a recommendation on how many I think would be appropriate. This does not always equate to a higher price because we are finishing the job in a shorter time period than if it were just me.
Overall, factors considered in a quote include the amount of stuff that needs to be gone through, the time it will take onsite with a client, the amount of donation trips that will be made, how much needs to be recycled such as electronics and paints, shopping time for supplies, and where the home or small business is located in DFW.
How long will this take?
Every space is different and each client is different, so timing can vary. However if you are under a deadline, then we will work within that timeline as best we can.
The key is that once the consultation occurs and I've sent you a quote, I can give you an idea of how long my team and/or I will be in your space(s) and we can get you on the schedule.
Do I have to get rid of things?
Yes, most likely. DFW Decluttered means clearing out the clutter, putting those items in the past! However you dictate what we get rid of and what we don’t. There is never any pressure from me or my team! I am here to help guide you through the process through thoughtful and engaging questions and things to think about. You make the final decision.
I can’t afford to hire help. How can I do this on my own?
If you are more of a DIY’er or have limited time or budget, the best part of what I do is that I can offer you an Virtual DIY Package. The package includes 4 sessions and each session is via zoom. We work for 45 minutes online together and then I ask for you to work for 45 minutes on your own based on the guidance I’ve given you. I ask that you commit this time within 1 to 2 days of our initial session.
What areas do you cover in DFW and are you willing to travel?
My business is located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and this is where the majority of my clients reside. I have worked in Fort Worth, Dallas, Frisco, Plano, Grapevine, Colleyville, Southlake, Westlake, Keller, Bedford, Hurst, Euless, Trophy Club, Arlington, and Mansfield and I’m always adding more towns to the list! For me it is not about the distance but about what I can do to help you!
That said, if you are further away in DFW surrounding areas, I do charge $75 for the consultation but the fee will be applied toward the project if hired. There is typically a slightly higher cost to the project pricing to account for the distance traveled overall. However, I am willing to travel and have done this successfully with several clients.
For those interested outside of DFW and a virtual package is not an option, definitely reach out to discuss options for me to travel to you.
Do you work with hoarders?
As the Lead Organizer, I am not trained professionally to work with hoarders, however, I have worked with hoarders and those with hoarding tendencies due to my personal experience. Many times adult children of hoarders have hired me to come in and help where I can. My goal is to always help families get to a place that they feel less stressed and overwhelmed by their belongings and that looks different for each family.
