HOARDER CLEANUP

 


Compulsive hoarding is a complex anxiety disorder that makes it difficult for a person to discard or part with possessions, regardless of their actual value. Hoarders sometimes feel items will be useful one day or that they have sentimental value. Many people have dealt with this problem their entire lives, and often only after family members become involved is the issue addressed.

In addition to excessive clutter, other serious consequences of compulsive hoarding can include fire or health hazards and insect or rodent infestations. In many cases, depending on the level of contamination in a hoarding environment, our technicians must utilize protective gear to avoid further contamination. Our hoarding cleanup services include debris removal, biohazard disposal, content cleaning for salvageable items, and professional cleaning, disinfecting, sanitizing and deodorizing of the affected premises.

Removal of hoarding debris and waste can be dangerous, and therefore, extraordinary precautions must be taken.

Who is responsible for paying for the service?

As the property owner you are responsible for payment and will need to sign a form authorizing payment for the restoration services. If this is an insurance claim, ServiceMaster Restore generally collects only the deductible (co-payment) amount from you and bills the balance to your insurance provider as a service to you. If you have a large loss, your mortgage company may be included as a payee on the payment from your insurance company, and you may need to obtain a signature from them as well. If your claim is not covered by insurance or you decide not to file a claim, you will be expected to pay in full. A payment schedule may be agreed upon prior to the start of any non-insured work.

Do I need to move out of my home during the restoration process?

Depending on the extent of damage, your insurance representative can help you answer this question. Ultimately, however, this is a decision you must reach on your own. Some things you may want to consider are safety concerns, odours, electricity, and disruption as a result of the equipment, work and noise that may be necessary to complete the restoration process in your home. If vacating your premises during the process, consider forwarding your mail to your temporary residence; stopping your newspaper and other deliveries; notifying your utility company, cable company, etc., of the temporary suspension of services during the restoration process.
