MaidPro of Tulsa was recently featured on A&E’s hit television series, “Hoarders.”
The series looks at people who can’t part with their belongings, to the extent they are on the verge of a personal crisis. MaidPro partnered with Screaming Flea Productions to restore the homes featured on the show to a livable condition once the clutter was cleared.
The Dec. 7 episode, filmed in Tulsa, followed "Gail" as she cleaned up her home. Once a disciplined ballerina, Gail’s life was falling apart because of stuff. The floors were sinking, the gas line was bent and the water pipes broken.
Goats had eaten through the siding to the back bedroom and chickens, dogs, and cats were seen roaming among the piles of clutter in the house.
“We were incredibly privileged to help our new friend, Gail, in Tulsa,” said Greg Ford, owner of MaidPro of Tulsa. "Having a part in transforming her home was difficult, but completely rewarding. Our team made an unbelievable difference. The walls were brighter, the hardwood floors were reconditioned, and even the appliances looked brand new after we got done with them.”
Added Mark Kushinsky, CEO of MaidPro, “I think this is a cause that is often overlooked and misunderstood. We wanted to contribute to the effort of spreading awareness and “Hoarders” gave us an outlet where our services are needed … While MaidPro is not used to cleaning homes like those featured on the show, we wanted to provide our services because they are necessary for recovery.”
