Hoarding is a relatively new type of mental disorder which has been brought to light by shows such as “Hoarding, Buried Alive”. While it has been happening for years it wasn’t until recently that professionals recognized this as a mental disorder.
People may say it’s just a mess why would we need a decontamination company. The answer to that is simple; you may not need a decontamination company if the job is just trash but once you start finding feces, dead animals, and rodent droppings then it becomes a bio-hazard situation. Rodent droppings and bird droppings can kill people via the Hantavirus (HPS).
We work alongside counties and social services as well as insurance companies to provide the most efficient means of handling a hoarding situation.
Hoarding cleanup is handled a little different from our other services regarding pricing. Many times, the job calls for removal of items versus a decontamination of the house. In order for us to begin pricing out the home for hoarding cleanup we must come to the home and estimate the number of items to be removed and the manpower involved to do the work. We will come to the home to give you an estimate free of charge.
We strongly recommend that family and friends work together with the homeowner and a mental health expert to ensure the home is cleaned with as few issues as possible. Remember, hoarding is often a sign of a mental illness and without the homeowner being wanting help the job is nearly impossible to perform. We will only provide hoarding clean up with a ready and willing homeowner or under a court/city order to do the work without the homeowners’ permission.
Many times, the people who hoard know they have a problem and want help but are too embarrassed to ask for it, so they suffer in silence. Besides the filth problems people trapped in hoarding situations suffer from; often times they have other medical conditions that can be serious or exacerbated by the filth all around them. Spotless Crime Clean provides discreet consultations and will provide a discreet cleanup. Our services are confidential and your name is never sold or used in any publication.
We do not do a thorough cleaning of the property after all the biohazard and hoarding items have been cleared out. We are happy to recommend a local cleaning company to come in when the property is empty to perform a thorough, deep clean.
