Millions of Americans suffer from a mental disorder that causes them to create living conditions in their home that threaten their health and safety; hoarding. Like other mental disorders, hoarding is complicated and you must approach an affected individual delicately in order to help them. Hoarding involves intense anxiety that stops affected individuals from throwing anything away. Therefore, they allow all kinds of objects like newspapers, boxes, and appliances to pile high which increases the risk of injuries, fire, and mold growth. ServiceMaster Kwik Restore provides hoarding cleaning services to help clear out and restore the homes of hoarders in Racine, WI. Our technicians will not only clean and disinfect the home with our advanced equipment, but also approach the affected individual with compassion and keep them involved throughout the entire process.
It does not take long for the clutter to get out of hand and pose serious threats to the hoarder and their family. As the pile of items continues to grow, the home becomes difficult to walk through and there is a chance that items could fall over and cause an injury. The hoard of items also creates an environment favorable to mold or bacteria growth that can have serious health effects. The problem is that hoarders do not ask for help because they are either too embarrassed or they may not view their condition as a problem. Someone who the individual trusts must reach out to them and help them understand the danger of their living conditions.
Once a hoarder agrees to clean out their home, the actual cleaning can be a daunting task. Our technicians at ServiceMaster Kwik Restore have the right cleaning products and equipment to clear large amounts of hoarded items as well as deep clean and disinfect the entire home. Our hoarding cleaning services are done in compliance with the EPA, OSHA, and the Department of Transportation and we can safely clean biohazard materials. However, we do not plan, remove, or clean anything without the approval of the affected individual.
The hoarding cleaning services we provide include the following:
- Decontamination: Unwanted hoarded items are cleared from the home, followed by thorough cleaning and decontamination.
- Deodorization: We can eliminate all foul odors with our deodorization services.
- Proper Disposal: We provide assistance with the disposal, recycling, donation, or redistribution of the hoarded items. The final decision on each item is made by the affected individual.
Hoarding can lead to very dangerous living conditions for the affected individual and their family which is why it is important to reach out to a hoarder for help. However, you must remember to approach with compassion and let the individual know that you care deeply about their safety.
