Mike's house is so toxic that a virus she contracted in the home caused her kidneys to fail and almost killed her. Her doctor advised her not to return to the home until it was thoroughly cleaned. Instead of cleaning, Mike moved in with her sister Judy. Months later, Judy can no longer tolerate Mike's hoarding and needs her to move out. If Mike doesn't clean up she'll have no where to go. Bonnie is a 46-year-old single mother of two teenage daughters, neither of whom can remember ever having a clean house. The home is hoarded and in need of repair, but Bonnie is terrified C.P.S. will take her kids away if she lets anyone in. The kids are tired of having to do things like wash dishes in the bathtub and there are screaming fights about the hoard. Bonnie must clean up to keep C.P.S. away and to salvage her relationship with her daughters.
