Urge to Purge - 'Cleaning your space at your own pace'

Released: Monday, June 14, 2021

Welland, ON – "Spotlight On" looks at Welland's new and existing businesses, providing a glimpse into what makes them a staple in the community. This month's Spotlight is on Urge to Purge.

Formed in Welland in 2012 as a mother and son venture aiming to help seniors declutter and organize their homes, Urge to Purge has grown into a multi-level service company serving Welland, the municipalities across Niagara Region and beyond.

Operations have expanded to a dedicated team of 15 employees with three trucks and a trailer, as well as a warehouse for furniture and household item donations. Staff work with donation centres to connect those most in need with the pieces they require.

The core focus at Urge to Purge is helping people reclaim their living spaces, they believe in “clearing your space at your own pace.” The expert team consults with clients to understand their needs and provides flexible timetables to get the job done. The range of decluttering and home service options include:

  • Professional Junk Removal
  • Household Decluttering & Organization
  • Estate Appraisals & Estate Clear Outs
  • Bed bug, Flea & Cockroach Decontamination
  • Deep Cleaning

If you are downsizing and moving, they can assist with careful packing and staging followed by unpacking and setup at your final location.

Being deemed an essential service at the start of the pandemic allowed the company to continue helping people with hoarding remediation and disposal. Staff closely adhered to the public health guidelines and were happy their services remained available to the community.

Additional services available to residential and commercial clients are:

  • Sustainable Junk Removal
  • Hoarding Remediation
  • Property Maintenance for all Seasons
  • Extreme Cleaning & Commercial Cleaning

To respect the privacy of its clients, Urge to Purge does not feature a logo on their trucks or advertise at their work sites. The high quality of their work and strong word of mouth recommendations has driven awareness of the business and their success to date.

Urge to Purge has been and always will be a team rich in diversity and experience. Management strongly believe in paying all staff a liveable wage and plan to put this into practice outside of Niagara in the form of satellite offices and franchises.

Having established themselves as essential community service providers, we look forward to the continued success of Urge to Purge .
