Hoarding Clean Up
Hoarding Clean Up
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 may feel items will be useful one day or that they have sentimental value. Many have dealt with this problem their entire lives, and often only after other 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 infestations. In many cases, due to the level of contamination in a hoarder environment, our highly trained technicians must utilize protective gear to avoid infection. Our service includes debris removal, biohazard disposal, content cleaning for salvageable items and general cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing services.
