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.

Do my belongings need to be moved away from the premises?

Depending on the scope of work, your belongings and contents of your home may remain on location. In this case, we will take appropriate measures to securely cover and protect contents. Any construction related dust or dirt that occurs as a result of the work, would be addressed in the post-construction cleaning. For large restoration jobs, it is advisable to move all affected contents to a secure, climate-controlled facility in order to protect them and make room for construction. Be assured that our technicians are fully trained and will treat your possessions with the utmost care. Our Automated Inventory Control System tracks the status of your belongings from move out to move back. We will work with you and your Insurance Claims Representative to manage this process efficiently.

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.
