ECHO Package 1 - Got CLutter? Get your purge on! - Starting at $395.00 (Daily rate) +HST
This is by far our most popular service. We begin with an in-home consultation. After discussing your needs, challenges and goals we provide you with a detailed proposal, scope of work, and budget. We factor in costs such as labour, PPE, bins, decorative baskets, shelving, furniture, construction bin rental etc. so that you have a clear understanding of the amount of work that is involved in completely transforming your space. We renovate your space without the drywall dust and soot!! By the end of the project you will be the proud occupant/s of a de-cluttered and peaceful space. We don’t leave unless it is perfect.
Some projects are larger than others and may take several days. After 10 years of experience we know how long each project will most likely take to complete. Typically, a full day includes purging and organizing items in your space, a spring clean of your home or office, de-cluttering and removal of debris and garbage. We also provide donation management services in this package. We are your project managers for the day! We try to organize your de-cluttering and cleaning date around the City of Ottawa Collection Schedule to avoid the additional cost of private refuse removal should you need it. Call us today for a free estimate and in home consultation.
CAVEAT: Due to the nature of older homes, or recently renovated spaces, there can be many unforeseen challenges and health hazards. Construction dust and wood chippings, mold and mildew, mouse droppings, dirty ducts, and animal hair may incur additional costs. Having a free estimate beforehand would help alleviate any unforeseen pricing discrepancies.
Should you prefer an on-line Skype/Facetime/Zoom/Microsoft Meet etc. consultation please contact us directly to set up a date and time. We would need to be able to see your space as you walk around. Please ensure that you have a camera on your device that would allow us to get an understanding of what items you have in your home.
