By Noreen Music | OMS News

Organize My Space Calgary has resumed in-person organizing services. We are operating with enhanced infection prevention and controls in place, adhering to all COVID-19 protocols outlined by the Alberta Government. Our goal is to prevent exposure and decrease the spread of COVID-19 for the health and safety of our valued client's and employee's.

Guideline for In-Home Assessments & In-Person Organizing Sessions Under COVID-19

This has certainly been a challenging and difficult year for all of us dealing with the stress and uncertainty of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

In response, OMS safety processes and practices have changed with respect to in-home assessments and in-person organizing sessions to keep you and your family safe and healthy.

Workplace Safety Policy

A Workplace Safety Policy has been developed as guidance for OMS to meet and work with clients in-person during the active COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. 

Pre-Screen Health Check

A pre-screen health check to be completed before all in-home assessments and organizing appointments. 

Risk Assessment

A detailed Risk Assessment to be completed prior to all in-home organizing sessions.

Disinfection of Supplies & Surfaces

Limited supplies to be brought into your space and all supplies and surfaces to be disinfected before and after use.

Personal Protective Equipment

Hospital grade masks and gloves (in conjunction with frequent hand washing) will be used by your OMS Professional Organizer.

Physical Distancing

2 metre physical distance to be maintained at all times. OMS Professional Organizer and client to work in separate areas, if possible.

Cancellation Fee Waived

If you or someone in your household is diagnosed with, or has been exposed to COVID-19, and your appointment must be cancelled with less than the required 48 hours notice, the 3 hour minimum cancellation fee will be waived.

All cancelled appointments will be rescheduled when it is safe to do so.

No refunds.

Giving Back Program

10% Makes a 100% Impact!

Giving back to deserving families, charities and non-profit organizations in our community is a must for us at OMS. We provide a high quality service that gives people and businesses a solid foundation for getting organized and systems to help it stay that way. But the fact is, not everyone has the means to afford such a transformative and valuable service.

This is where you as a Freedom Flyer come in! By choosing to work with OMS, 10% of every package purchased goes back into your community as a free service to a deserving individual, family or charity.

We are committed to working with deserving families and organizations to give them the gift of freedom that you as a Freedom Flyer enjoy.

Freedom Flyer Definition

By Noreen Music | OMS News

Become a Freedom Flyer! 

By choosing to work with an OMS Professional Organizer, you will join an exclusive community of people who are living their lives free from clutter and disorganization. 

You become who we call a Freedom Flyer.

You can expect an organizing plan created just for you and your family's unique needs plus the hands on help needed to realize your vision of your space. 

We are deeply committed to you and we are there for you every step of the way on this exciting new journey. 

Getting started can seem scary and daunting at first but you will soon see that true freedom can be found through organizing your space.

What you can do to prepare for organizing....

  • Remove any recycling/garbage from the area we will be working in.
  • Ensure the space is clean and safe so organizing can start right away.
  • Have garbage bags handy in case we find more items to discard or recycle during the initial sort.
  • Place 4 large empty boxes in the space (donate/sell, keep, doesn’t belong, undecided).
  • Complete any previously agreed upon homework and/or product purchasing.
  • If any family or friends will be joining in, let them know your vision and expectations so they help, not hinder, the process.

By completing the above preparations, your time with us will be well used and you will save time and money in the long run!

What to expect during your first organizing session….

  • We will show up ready to get to work!
  • Review and agree on the organizing plan for the day.
  • Work together and begin the sorting process.
  • Organizational systems put in place that work for you and your family.
  • Review and evaluate our accomplishments to ensure your expectations are being met.

Remember that things will always look worse before they look better! 

It is a part of the process and is critical to successfully meet your vision and goals.
