Hoarding is more than a case of laziness or poor housekeeping skills. It’s a condition with a basis in anxiety and for reasons even the individual might not understand, they collect items with little to no value. Newspapers, mail, and magazines are commonly hoarded items, while other people are unable to throw unneeded items away. As the items accumulate over time, they pile up into stacks and block access to parts of the home. The stacks harbor bacteria, mold, dust, and rodents, which bring problems of their own. Any attempts by the family to remove these items or clean the home, especially while the individual is out, create feelings of anger, distrust, and even sadness.
ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration understands that this is a delicate, complex situation that doesn’t have a simple answer. We want to reassure anyone in Parker, CO and the surrounding areas who is dealing with this situation that there’s no shame involved; it’s an anxiety disorder and we can help. Our specialists have years of experience dealing with hoarding situations of all sizes and we treat all individuals with compassion and respect. We work with the family and the person to create a full cleaning and sanitizing program that will return the home to safe living conditions and help the person keep it that way. We never come in and just throw things away; the individual is involved in the process every step of the way and nothing is removed without permission.
