Hoarding is the accumulation of an excessive number of items beyond a functional level and regardless of actual value. In addition, even though the collection of material goods increases, a hoarder finds it extremely difficult to part with any of their possessions. Hoarding can range from having piles of paper to innumerable collected possessions or even hoarding of pet animals. Hoarding is a disorder and unfortunately, persons affected with hoarding disorder may not even consider it as a problem. For some persons, it can be very hard to throw away items that they have developed a strong sense of attachment to. When helping someone affected by hoarding, one of the most difficult steps in the process of recovery is having a hoarding cleanup done. Bio Hazard Services Pty Ltd is here to help make a physically and emotionally difficult situation easier, without any inconvenience to you.
Need for Hoarding Cleanup
A hoarder’s property is usually not cleaned or maintained by the person. This is either due to the amount of clutter present or the fact that they are unable to discard anything. A hoarder finds cleaning up their home emotionally challenging.
Living in a hoarding environment presents significant health risks to the occupants as well as surrounding inhabitants. Dust, rubbish, human and animal waste can all lead to poor health and illness.
With little or no ventilation, there is likely to be dampness and a build-up of mould. The place can also harbour bacteria and other dangerous pathogens. Some biohazards may not be visible but are still present. Biohazards can cause unpleasant odours and spread infectious diseases. Odour removal and mould remediation may be necessary.
During a typical hoarding cleanup job, the contents of the home either have to be cleaned, decontaminated and remediated or removed and discarded.
Finally, the property has to be thoroughly sanitised to ensure it is safe for the inhabitants to return to.
