When looking at a hoarder’s home, there is often a bigger problem than just cleaning up the mess. It may look like they are being lazy, but hoarding is often the result of a deep anxiety or depression. These challenges can produce serious complications when it comes to throwing away anything in their home.
As the pile of items continues to grow, chances increase for health and safety hazards to occur. Dangerous situations can include blocked pathways and exits, fire risks, mold growth, biohazards, and even pest infestations.
Due to these dangerous conditions, it’s important to address the situation as soon as possible. But the solution isn’t as easy as cleaning the home. You must reach out to your loved one first and discuss the need for a cleaning service. They must understand that their situation is putting their health and safety in danger. After the affected individual is ready to have their home cleaned, call RestorationMaster for professional hoarding cleanup.
