Hoarding is a mental disorder that has become a serious issue for many Americans. The people who are affected by hoarding feel individualized and embarrassed by it. Because of this, they often hesitate to seek help. Usually, they need a trusted loved one to help them realize the danger of their living situation, as hoarding can include biohazards and lead to fire risks and tripping hazards in the home.

With years of experience and a compassionate approach, our technicians can be trusted to handle the cleaning. We always work with respect and patience and conduct our work only with the individual’s approval. Furthermore, we put the individual in charge of what to remove.
Risks Associated with Hoarding
There’s more to hoarding disorders than a cluttered home. The individual affected by the disorder battles strong anxiety that manifests as an inability to part with personal contents: collectibles, magazines, books, antiques, trash, even animals, and more. As these items accumulate, their home becomes unsafe. Exits can be blocked, items can serve as tripping or fire hazards, and animals leave behind biohazard materials throughout the home.
If you have a loved one affected by hoarding, then you need to speak with them right away to discuss their situation and how unsafe their home has become. Emphasize the dangers hoarding presents to help persuade them into getting professional cleaning assistance. Once they have agreed to get help, get in touch with ServiceMaster TEAM for our hoarding cleaning services.
