The American Psychiatric Association published findings in a recent study that 4-5% of Americans suffer from hoarding disorder of some kind. Aftermath specializes in cleaning out properties occupied by hoarders and recovering valuables after they have become overwhelmed by the amount of material they possess. When hoarding poses a biohazard risk, a cleanup company with biohazard remediation services is needed to safely remove areas contaminated with human or animal feces or remains, mounds of material, filth, and bacteria growth.
PROFESSIONAL HOARDING CLEANUP AND DISINFECTION
Since 1996, Aftermath has been helping Memphis families and individuals affected by hoarding restore their homes. Our compassionate team is available to provide cleaning, recovery, and restoration services for your situation.
Cleanup crews are required to wear personal protective equipment on every job (respirators, biohazard suits, etc.) to shield against Hantavirus, MRSA, E. coli, and other biohazardous materials.
Aftermath removes and disinfects biohazards while following local, state, and federal regulations. Our staff is trained to respond quickly and compassionately when dealing with a traumatic event.
WHAT IS HOARDING?
Hoarding has a negative impact on the individual with the disorder, their family members, and the community. It is a psychiatric disorder and can affect people of all ages. People who hoard may feel unable to part with anything due to an excessive attachment to their possessions. In severe instances, hoarding can become a health and safety hazard. Extensive filth and feces that contain bacteria that should be disposed of as hazardous waste is common in the homes of hoarders who have not received a proper diagnosis from a licensed mental health counselor.

We follow OSHA guidelines regarding the handling of biohazardous waste and disinfection. All traces of blood and stool are removed and the areas are sealed off to prevent cross-contamination.
