I make $20k decluttering hoarders homes – Ive seen disgusting things

A housekeeper who set up her own company to clean hoarders’ homes has detailed what she’s seen on the job since entering the field just six months ago.

Charlotte Bonsaquet, a 20-year-old from Sydney, set up her business while she was at university in order to make some cash on the side.

What started as a side hustle is now a full-time occupation that rakes in mammoth sums of money, explained Charlotte, who walks away from each job with anything between $5,000 and $20,000.

With more than 83k followers on TikTok, the professional cleaner showcases many of her jobs as she tries the break the stigma of hoarding.

Reserving judgment is a critical aspect of the work, she explains in several of her videos, as hoarding disorder is a clinically recognised mental health condition.

“It is so easy to assume why someone’s house is the way it is, but there are so many factors that contribute to a hoarder’s home”, she explains in one of her videos.

“Mental health plays a significant role in the cleanliness of one’s home so before [you] comment, think about what you’re saying.”

The first thing Charlotte does when arriving at a client’s property is map out the work that lies ahead, before finding gloves and heat-duty bin bags to remove all rubbish from the premises.

The 20-year-old says she comes across just about anything on her jobs, from rotten fruits and vegetables to cardboard boxes and overfilled bin bags.

Unwashed dishes are another common factor on the job and one of the most arduous tasks for her and her team, explained Charlotte.

Speaking to Mailonline’s FEMAIL: “The first time I cleaned a hoarder’s house it was extremely tiring but the most rewarding thing I have ever accomplished.

“Being able to help people that feel there is no way out f the best feeling in the world. You just have to put your head down and go for it.”

The professional cleaner previously disclosed in an interview with Mamamia that she charges up to $20,000 or more to clean a hoarder’s property, but prices vary drastically for each job.
