Hoarding Cleanup

If you or a loved one is suffering in silence from hoarding, the most compassionate action is to return the home into a safe and habitable environment.

Hoarding has been diagnosed as a behavioral disease and can begin as a coping mechanism after a traumatic event. What started as simple packing away or storing of items can lead to a serious deterioration of the indoor air quality as items accumulate over time. Storing trash and mounds of material items can lead to the development of biohazardous waste as mold begins to grow, food rots and insects infest the cluttered areas. 

However, the solution to hoarding requires much more than clearing out the excess clutter. It requires a team effort between the family, the individual’s therapist and a trained and certified hoarding cleanup professional. 

If you suspect a loved one may be a hoarder, it is time to seek out professional help.

It was not until HGTV’s hit TV show, “Hoarders,” that this very severe but common disease garnered attention. Hoarding has been an issue for quite some time. However, people used to brush it aside with comments such as, “Oh, my Aunt is such a packrat,” or, “Grandpa saves EVERYTHING.” People did not realize how much damage living in such a cluttered space could have on their physical and mental health. Over the years, On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration has worked with many different clients who have been suffering from hoarding. We have found common causes as to why people begin to save everything.

  • Experience of Trauma
  • ADD/ ADHD
  • Holding on to Memories
  • Fear of Being Wasteful
  • Inherited the Behavior
  • Saving for the “Perfect” Use of an Item
  • Using Clutter as a Shield to the Outside World

On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration Hoarding

At On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration, we understand there are many emotions involved when restoring a home from hoarding behavior. That is why we make an effort to work in conjunction with vested family members, the individual hoarding, and their family therapist. However, our primary goal is to restore the home into a safe and habitable space, which requires the removal of the clutter and proper cleaning techniques once space is cleared. 

Our process is very simple and thorough:

Identify the Severity of the Situation

We will completely evaluate the property to see what types of hazards are present. We look for mold, animal feces, trash and anything else that could be harmful to property.

Propose a Removal and Cleaning Strategy

We will communicate our plan of action to the family members and explain what we are planning on removing and how we will sanitize and clean the space.

Sort Items That Will Stay

Usually the most difficult part of the process is deciding which items will stay and which will be thrown away.

Restore the Property to a Habitable Condition

Once the clutter is cleared, we can get to work by removing and restoring mold infested areas, sanitizing newly exposed surfaces and returning the property to a safe place to live.

WE ARE ALWAYS OPEN - 24/7 EMERGENCY SERVICE
