Hoarding Cleaning in Lakewood, NJ

ServiceMaster by Replacements

(732) 844-6232

There are millions of Americans who are affected by the mental disorder known as hoarding.  Those who struggle with hoarding have issues with anxiety and depression that manifest as the behaviors most commonly associated with hoarding, such as an ability to throw anything away.  The clutter that results creates dangerous and unsanitary conditions in the home that threaten the health and safety of those within.  Cleaning the home of a hoarder is important to restore safe living conditions, but this should only be done if the affected individual agrees to follow through with the cleaning.

The Dangers of Hoarding

Hoarding starts with feelings of anxiety and depression that make it difficult for those affected to part with any objects that come into their home.  This causes clutter to build up and over time, the amount of clutter created can be dangerous.

You should never start cleaning the home of a hoarder or force them to clean their home.  Remember, hoarding is a mental disorder and a sensitive situation.  First, reach out to the affected individual and talk to them about how the condition of their home is detrimental to their safety.  Only when the individual agrees to clean out their home should you proceed.

The following are the biggest dangers of hoarding:

  • Blocked escape routes: Excessive clutter can block pathways and exits which can be very dangerous in case of an emergency like a fire.
  • Fire hazard: The risk of a fire is much higher with built up clutter that could ignite and fuel a fire.
  • Tipping hazard: Piles of clutter tend to be unstable and can fall over at any time and cause injuries.
  • Mold and bacteria: Mold, bacteria, and other dangerous substances may form within the clutter and create unsanitary conditions that can affect the health of those in the home.
