Hoarding affects many people in the US. It is technically a mental disorder in which an individual is unable to get rid of any items in their home due to anxiety and depression. As a result, clutter builds up in their home and eventually reaches unsafe and unsanitary levels. Homes affected by hoarding have a higher risk of fire and they can be a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses which can cause health issues. Before cleaning the home of a hoarder, it is important to talk to them about their situation and help them understand that they need to clean their home for their safety. Once they agree to proceed, you can call a professional to help clean up.

Our technicians can help remove unwanted items as well as clean and restore the home to safe living conditions. We always work with the affected individual and their families to ensure that they are in approval of everything we do at their home.
Dangers of Hoarding
The amount of clutter that builds up in the home of a hoarder can reach dangerous levels. The hoarded items can block pathways and exits which is hazardous in case of an emergency and there is a risk of injuries from falling objects. Fires are also more likely to occur as the hoarded items can catch fire easily and fuel the flames.
The conditions within a home affected by hoarding become unsanitary when mold, bacteria, and other dangerous substances form within the clutter. This can put the health of those within the home at risk.
