Every day, millions of Americans are affected by hoarding which is a mental disorder that involves a high level of anxiety. This anxiety is the root cause of common hoarding behaviors because it prevents affected individuals from throwing away objects collected in the home. Eventually, the hoard of objects will dangerously clutter the home and increase the risk of fires, injuries, and mold growth. It is difficult for hoarders to live in these conditions and it can be difficult for their loved ones to watch. Here at ServiceMaster Kwik Restore, we are concerned about the safety of individuals that live in hoarding situations which is why we offer our hoarding cleaning services to families in McHenry, IL and the surrounding areas. Our technicians can restore homes affected by hoarding to safe living conditions and we treat those affected with respect and compassion.
People who are affected by hoarding are rarely able to reach out for help themselves. It can be too difficult for many of them to come to terms with the problem and some are embarrassed by the conditions of their house. For this reason, hoarders may need a friend or family member to reach out to them and help start the cleaning process. We understand the emotional toll this process can take on someone affected by hoarding, so we train our technicians to handle every situation with compassion and sensitivity. We will build a personal connection with the affected individual and make sure they are involved in the planning and cleaning process. The final decision on what to do with the hoarded objects is given to the affected individual.
Our technicians are trained to handle any hoarding situation in compliance with OSHA, EPA, and Department of Transportation guidelines. We will help remove hoarded items and we use the best cleaning products and equipment to restore and disinfect the home.
