Hoarding Cleanup Services
Hoarding is a mental health condition in which a person finds it difficult to discard or part with items, regardless of their true value. A hoarding-affected home may be unsafe, unhealthy or both, necessitating immediate action to address the issue and assist the customer on the road to recovery. Allen Keith Construction and CleanTech have collaborated to develop a successful hoarding cleanup services program that employs a tried-and-true method to aid in the resolution of hoarding situations of all sizes.
Hoarders and their families are more likely to conceal their situation from family and well-wishers by staying at home, refusing to invite guests and refusing to invite visitors. However, if the problem is not addressed, it will have far-reaching consequences. Cleaning up after hoarders is a dangerous and difficult task that requires a well-thought-out strategy. To begin, decide which items you’ll toss, which you’ll donate and which you’ll throw away. Hoarders struggle to let go of their belongings, and dealing with a family member may result in long-term resentment.

The Serious Dangers of Hoarding Cleanup Services
Clearing a hoarder’s home can be deadly due to the mold and the rot that can be found beneath layers of possessions. Fungus spores could contaminate the cleaner’s lungs, causing long-term harm. When cleaning up a hoarding situation, you will encounter a variety of biohazards, such as living and dead animals, feces, urine and other bodily fluids. Exposing yourself to these conditions, including pathogens such as germs and fungi, is extremely dangerous if you do not have protection. Because of the high level of contamination in a hoarding environment, our highly skilled professionals must wear protective gear in many cases to avoid infection. A hoarding problem necessitates not only experts capable of dealing with the issues but also professionals who are kind and respectful to each client.
Poor air quality is a defining feature of a hoarder’s home. When the habitat is disturbed, mold spores, stink, dust, ammonia and other pollutants are continuously released into the atmosphere. If you breathe this contaminated air for an extended period of time, you may develop respiratory problems, including allergies. As a result, you should hire a reputable cleaning company to finish the job. Our cleaners are outfitted with the necessary protective gear and instruments to complete the work effectively and safely. There is eye protection, puncture-resistant gloves, hard hats, biohazard suits, respirators, long-lasting shoes/boots and dust masks available.
Structures in hoarding-affected areas may also deteriorate. The excess weight of a hoarded property can exceed the design limitations of the structure. If structural issues are discovered, our construction team will collaborate with our professionals to ensure the home’s safety. It’s sometimes amazing how many garbage trucks one house or property can carry when it comes to hoarder cleanup and clutter removal with our hoarding cleanup services.
