Hoarding Cleanup Services
Hoarding disorder affects 2.6% of the American population. It occurs when a person experiences a need to save and keep items because they have extreme difficulty discarding or parting ways with their possessions.
Although there are different levels of hoarding disorder, a person likely suffers from it in some capacity if they exhibit three main symptoms:
- They keep many items that have little to no value to most people,
- They allow items to clutter in living spaces so that doorways and rooms are unusable, and
- Their possessions cause stress or problems with day-to-day living.
It’s important to remember that much of what is considered “clutter” is actually important and offers sentimental value to the person that is hoarding these items. It can then be extremely difficult for friends and family members to help their loved ones discard possessions or clean their homes.
That’s why when the time comes, it’s essential to work with a cleanup company that shows no judgment and instead focuses on providing the best service possible.
With four locations to serve you throughout Texas, Emergency Cleaning Solutions’ OSHA-compliant team of technicians can treat any hoarding cleanup with a compassionate, personal touch.
Hoarding Cleanups Require Professional Company Expertise
Hoarding disorder makes living a normal life nearly impossible, especially since there are so many physical, mental, and health risks.
The National Fire Protection Association estimates that hoarding can lead to increased fire risk due to blocked exits and the accumulation of excess materials.
Additionally, hoarding often leads to mental disorders like depression, anxiety, and OCD.
There is also a substantial hazard with prolonged exposure to mold, bacteria, and pest infestations since bacteria are more likely to multiply in warm, moist, protein-rich environments, meaning that hoarders’ homes are a perfect environment.
The first step is acknowledging a problem, and the second step is to work with an expert team that can help take care of it. A qualified hoarding cleanup service can help you, your family member, or your loved one improve their safety and quality of life.
Emergency Cleaning Solutions carefully evaluates the level of hoarding of a given space so that an effective cleaning strategy can be established. No matter the severity, a typical hoarding cleanup service in Texas includes:
- Expert knowledge on dealing with risks common in a hoarder’s home, like chemical hazards, blocked walkways, falling items, structural damage, unsanitary conditions from mold growth, bacteria, and dust, as well as dead animals, insect infestations, and other pests
- Assess the situation carefully with hard hats, masks, gloves, and other necessary protective gear
- Create a customized cleaning strategy
