Across the United States of America, millions of people are affected by hoarding. This often occurs because these individuals feel some level of stress or anxiety when it comes to throwing out items that they do not truly need. This leads to the buildup of unnecessary belongings that can create unsafe and unsanitary conditions for family members and friends. Here at ServiceMaster Restoration by Complete, we help those affected by hoarding tendencies in Clifton, NJ clean their homes, and return their property to a livable condition once more.
The major problems that arise from hoarding tendencies are the increased likelihood of dust, mold, and other bacteria growing in areas that are never cleaned. Additionally, the buildup of belongings can create an extreme fire hazard, and even block avenues of escape in the event of an emergency. For these reasons and more, it is important to contact us here at ServiceMaster Restoration by Complete if you or a loved one is affected by hoarding tendencies. Many times, the hoarders themselves will be too embarrassed to seek help, which is why it is important for friends and family to approach them with respect, and explain how their habits are harming people they care about, including themselves.

Our cleaning plan will be based off our initial assessment of your property. While working with affected individuals, we determine which areas have been affected, and the best way to restore them.

Regarding whether we throw away items, donate them, or recycle them, we leave this up to the affected individual.
Breaking hoarding tendencies can be a difficult process even after your property is cleaned. This is why we will create a regular cleaning plan for affected individuals to follow once we leave.
