About Us

Ron Alford is the Disaster Master®. That is his trademarked title. He founded and has been serving as the Director of Disaster Masters, Inc. for over 30 years. Ron’s background begins as a recognized authority on Crisis Management, Disaster Prevention, Risk Management, Disaster Recovery Planning and the Recovery Process. But, for the last 20 years his most substantial contribution to date has been the 1000s of Disposophobics he has unburied from years of abuse and neglect.

His 35-year career as the Director of DISASTER MASTERS ® and the management of thousands of claims for insurance victims has given him experience and insight which enables him to view people under severe stress, organizations, buildings, contents, in a completely different framework. In 1985 he began helping tenants in NYC whose apartment were loaded with too much stuff thwart legal eviction processes. On average the Clutter Team at Disaster Masters, Inc. now resolves 80-120 cases per year.

Ron has appeared on over 400 national and international radio and television programs. You may have seen him in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Good Housekeeping, Elle Magazine, Social Work Today, and dozens more magazines, newspapers as well as programs such as The Discovery Channel USA, BBC, MSNBC, NHK, Germany PBS, Good Morning America, The Early Show On NBC and many, many more. He has also co-authored the book, “Disposophobia: 101 Ways to Master the Clutter”.
