Recovery of Documents, Sentimental Items, Valuables

Decluttering sentimental items can be one of the hardest parts of decluttering our homes. But taking the plunge and spending the time and effort decluttering sentimental items can have a huge positive impact on our homes and lives.

When your storage room is not filled with boxes of sentimental items, it lifts a weight off your shoulders. And you can often find ways to use, display, and generally appreciate the sentimental items you do keep, more.

Imagine digging through boxes of school papers, photos, baby clothes, keepsakes, etc. looking for an important item. It can be frustrating and exhausting, simply because there is too much stuff.

Now imagine you have let go of some of your sentimental items. Getting rid of the things that don’t have a lot of value or meaning to you. Instead of digging through boxes of “stuff”, you know exactly where the item is. Maybe you’re even displaying it in your house or using it so you can enjoy and appreciate it every day.

Any valuables found in the home are the property of the customer. During a cleanup, finding valuables is an exciting event that we use to build confidence and momentum.

Something of value (emotional or monetary) is brought to the customer immediately, and the story of the item is shared with the crew. Taking the time to acknowledge and hear these stories is an important part of the process.
