Millions of people across the country get nostalgic about belongings, and have a hard time throwing them away. This is not what we are talking about when we discuss our hoarding cleaning services. Through these services, we assist individuals who suffer from a mental condition known as compulsive hoarding (or hoarding disorder). People with this condition experience extreme levels of anxiety and stress when faced with disposing of almost anything, from old books and knick-knacks to even garbage. This can lead to a number of dangerous situations as items build up. At ServiceMaster All Care Restoration, we develop a relationship with affected individuals in order to mitigate unnecessary risks and restore the property to a livable condition. We offer these services to those in need in Mesa, AZ.
While hoarding disorder is not necessarily curable, it can be managed. However, the process of learning to do so rarely begins with the affected individual taking steps on their own. In most cases, a trusted friend or family member must discuss the very legitimate dangers that their condition is causing. For example:
- Built-up items can create fire hazards, and block avenues of escape in the case of an emergency.
- Items that are stacked in an unstable way can create a tipping hazard for those in the home.
- Piles of belongings make it impossible to adequately clean covered areas, which can lead to the buildup of allergens, mold, and even pests. Dangerous biohazard materials may be hidden, as well.
If you know of a friend or family member who is suffering from the effects of hoarding disorder, we encourage you to get them on the road to recovery. It is for their own safety, as well as the safety of anybody who lives with, or visits, them. We also ask that you let them know that we are on their side. We will never begin the cleanup process without first developing a relationship based on trust.
