Cleaning for a Hoarder

10/12/2018 (Permalink)

An "typical" hoarder scene.

Hoarding is a mental illness that can become so severe that the person's health and life are in jeopardy.

Research concerning hoarders reports that the majority of hoarders are older, single women and a large percent of hoarders have alcohol or drug problems too. These statistics indicate that hoarders might be impaired and are prone to having accidents in their homes.

Piles of debris provide fuel for a fire, and nesting places for rodents and insects. The problem is especially bad when the hoarder lives in a multi-unit dwelling. The odor, bacteria, rodents and threat of fire often affects the neighboring units that are along side, above and below the offending unit. 

SERVPRO of San Leandro has a great deal of experience in removing the clutter and debris of hoarder scenes. We know how to sanitize and get the structure back to livable/rental or sales condition for relatives and landlords that inherit the mess.
