Olga’s home was a disaster area full of trash that accumulated over the course of many years. But this story isn’t about Olga’s messy house. It’s about defeating the cumulative effects of depression, one clean house at a time. It’s about volunteer cleaning personnel and a cleaning company that sponsors a program to help people clean their homes.

Olga suffers from depression, which is how her home got into such a state. One of the first steps in defeating depression is to break the cycle. That’s where the cleaning crew comes into play.

Depression is a fairly common mental disorder impacting approximately 8% of adults throughout the world. It can cause continuing sadness and an increasing lack of interest in anything. People suffering from depression typically hibernate within their own world, ignoring what happens around them. Another effect of this debilitating condition can be disinterest in maintaining your home. This is how Olga’s home got so messy.

Sini, a company that manufactures high-quality cleaning products in Europe, sponsored the complete top-to-bottom cleaning of Olga’s home. The results are amazing and will help Olga overcome her depression and maintain a more normal living environment. The video posted below is narrated by Aurikatariina, a YouTuber from Finland who traveled to Sweden to help Olga! 

Sini cleaning products are not available in the US. However, it is important to support their work in cases like this. They will continue helping people conquer mental health disorders such as depression by cleaning one home at a time.
