In December 2014, my Aunt Mary lost her ferocious fight with cancer. Immediately, the loss devastated my family to its core. In the middle of grappling with the gravity of our loss, we were also confronted with the responsibility of handling the care of the properties she had worked so hard to both attain and sustain. One of the properties even included the family home where she raised my mother and my mother subsequently raised my siblings and I.
Cleaning out the properties and hiring contractors proved cumbersome. Local bulk pick up ordinances were inconvenient, recycling regulations were confusing, and contractors wanted way more money than we could afford for our clean out projects. As novice homeowners we spent lots of money and wasted great amounts of time learning to navigate affordable property care services.
At some point we completely depleted available funds for cleaning the properties out. We also live in a city that has an ordinance that limits the number of bulk items residents can sit out each month for pick up (10 items). As a naturally inquisitive person and a full time doctoral student in public administration, I decided to research local, state, and federal environmental protection agencies, learn about regulations, understand pricing, and ways residents could dispose of their own waste.
Armed with my new knowledge, I began my own do-it-yourself clean out projects, room by room. But I started to notice that as I pulled the dusty items out of each room and began sorting the waste from the family keepsakes, there was something wrong. The cleaning agents and dust involved in the projects were impacting my vulnerable respiratory condition. I went to the doctor and was given prescriptions for my asthma and told to limit my exposure to the cleaning agents and dust. But I was in the middle of a bunch of clean out projects that I needed to finish and had no money to hire a contractor. I started my research again. I learned about the differences in cleaning agents and air pollutants. I contacted industry experts to inquire about standards and best practices. I eventually learned about proper ways to conduct cleans out while minimizing contact with pollutants. I began testing the cleaning power of industry certified environmentally friendly cleaning agents and in a short time I was able to finish my clean out projects without compromising my health or the environment.
My family was completely surprised and absolutely excited about the work I managed to complete on my own and I was proud that I was able to figure out how to handle the project without costing the family tons of money. There was the added benefit that the work I completed was also safe for my health and the health of my environment. It also felt rewarding to donate the family's unwanted items to local nonprofits and senior homes rather than having the items end up in overcrowded landfills.
I knew I had done something that needed to be shared with friends, family and the community I love.
There is no shortage of property care and waste removal services for customers to choose. It is not my purpose here to pretend to invent the wheel. Waste management services come in all shapes and sizes. However, while property care services are not a new phenomenon, few standards have guided contractor ethics and little attention has been paid to customer service.
Big box companies have little to no attachments to the communities and families they serve. Missed or late service appointments, high fees, and poor work quality are just a few problems that plague many waste management products. EPS stand apart from its competitors in our philosophy to provide a commitment to EXQUISITE PROPERTY SERVICES!
