Podcast: Meet the married couple who cleans hoarder houses for a living

hoarder houses

Brooklyn Paper Radio host Rose Adams speaks to Julian Bannister and Yannick Jules-Bannister, a married couple whose cleaning business, New Beginnings, specializes in hoarder houses. Since the company’s founding in 2016, the Downtown Brooklyn-based duo has scrubbed dozens of houses across the city, and encountered have rat nests under piles of trash, cockroach-infested teddy bears, and even dead pets along the way. Today, they talk about some of their most memorable clients: a former model who slipped into depression after a debilitating back injury, and a bereaved mother unable to throw out her son’s belonging after his tragic death. How do Julian and Yannick change their clients’ habits? Compassion.
