Reliable Hoarding Cleaning Services
Individuals that struggle with hoarding tend to collect anything from paper products, newspapers, food containers, and trash to animals in more extreme cases. As the hoard of items builds, it can create dangerous conditions by blocking access from parts of the home and mold and other bacteria may form within the hoard to make the home unsanitary. Our technicians have the training and experience to remove hoarded items as well as clean and sanitize the home if biohazard materials are found in the hoard. We also take a respectful approach to earn the trust of the individual and make sure to involve the person in the cleanup process to help decide what items get kept or discarded.
