Hoarding is a mental disorder that affects many people in the U.S. and the symptoms usually develop gradually. It can begin as modest collecting and eventually turn into a complete inability to throw anything away, leading to dangerous and unsanitary living conditions as the collected hoard grows and blocks off parts of the home. ServiceMaster by T.A. Russell provides hoarding cleanup services in Pasadena, CA to help restore the homes of individuals dealing with hoarding issues to safer living conditions. We can remove the hoarded items from the home as well as clean and sanitize the affected areas.
Individuals that struggle with hoarding generally collect anything from empty food containers, paper products, and newspapers to trash and even animals. As this hoard of items grows, it may harbor harmful materials such as bacteria or mold and block off access to certain areas of the home. Typically it takes a close friend or family member of the individual to initiate the hoarding cleanup process and in these cases, ServiceMaster by T.A. Russell is ready to help.
