    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • “I could just throw all this stuff away!”

    Decluttering your home is such a great experience. Yes, it is long and an annoying process, but luckily there are decluttering companies in Cleveland like Reilly Painting. Take a look at this article from Yahoo Homes, where they discuss the different emotions people have between clutter and decluttering...very interesting!

    "I feel like if I could just get rid of all this clutter, I could go on to do great things," I say as I am pouring out my heart to Jennifer Hunter, a perfect stranger who happens to be a professional organizer.

    "Maybe that's why you keep the clutter," she says, without any hesitation.

    I am stunned. And vaguely defensive.

    I'm not sure what I expected her to say exactly. But certainly not that the clutter I can't seem to banish from my life is serving as some sort of perverse excuse for underachieving.
    Hunter tells me about the time she was organizing a client's house and a contractor who was there to paint the ceiling asked her what it was she did exactly.

    As she explained, the painter began nodding. "I see," he said. "So you're sort of a therapist."

    "Halfway between a therapist and a housekeeper," is how Hunter describes her work.

    I make a mental note to avoid any further mentions of my childhood.

    Clutter matters, Hunter says. It matters because it takes up space — not just in your surroundings, but in your head.
