During these unprecedented times, we take our role as an essential service provider seriously and we remain open to service our customers. We understand that everyone is very concerned with the potential spread of the Coronavirus. We’re following the guidelines put in place by the federal government, local governments and the CDC.
Below are some of the safety precautions we’ve implemented to protect our team and our clients:
Our junk hauling services don’t achieve success on their own. We are committed to helping our community grow by working with other local Washington DC Metro area businesses in the area, like Organizing Maniacs, who are passionate about making a difference in our community and environment. Let’s learn more about Cris Sgrott, CEO of Organizing Maniacs below!
I am the CEO and the trainer for our team. I bring my experience to the field to make sure all of our team members can provide the same superior level of service to all of our clients!
I came to professional organizing by accident. In 2007, I lost my job as a project manager with a local remodeling contractor and started freelancing my services as an administrative assistant. My clients started asking me, “Would you help me with…?” All of these projects around their home. And, it was fun, so I kept saying yes.
After about six months of organizing people for a living, I gave up searching for a job. And, almost 14 years later, we have invoiced over six thousand projects. Certification and education is something I am passionate about, as I have three certifications. I am a certified professional organizer, a certified senior move manager, and a certified professional organizer in chronic disorganization.
Early into owning our businesses, I met Collin Wheeler at a networking event. We had a lot in common; we both wanted to make sure we were taking care of the environment through the process of our work.
We also share a passion for recycling, and I started referring to a lot of our clients to work with them. We bonded on our commitment toward understanding our clients in the process of serving them. What we do is not just about the clutter, there is so much more behind it for clients.
About four years ago, Kevin Wheeler and I also created a Continuing Education class to the Real Estate community. We continue to collaborate on how to improve our services and honor our clients with our work.
The people! We love our clients! It is a privilege to go into people’s homes and get to help them begin their journey of living a clutter-free life. Everyday, I learn as much as I teach my clients in our work together.
I recommend that they join the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) and start learning and networking. They have a ton of free resources.
Always start with the “I will put it here for now…” pile and deal with it later. I joke that it will be the name of my book. We all have a pile waiting to leave our homes, waiting for us to just do it. Start there!
