HOARDING CLEAN UP

Hoarders homes can be unhealthy, dangerous or both—and dramatic action is required to address the problem and help the customer get on the road to recovery.
Rent a Mum offer Hoarding Clean Up Services ensuring that a deep cleaning project is always done with dignity and respect.

WHAT IS HOARDING?

Hoarding means excessively collecting items that appear of little or no value and not being able to throw them away, resulting in unmanageable amounts of clutter.

It is considered to be a significant problem when:

  • The amount of clutter interferes with day to day living, for example, an unusable kitchen due to clutter, a bedroom or bathroom that is inaccessible.

  • Significant distress can be caused and have a negative effect on a person’s ability to function in everyday life.

Many sufferers who hoard have strong beliefs that there is a need for these things and they are of importance to them and find it hard to throw anything away.
With the right counselling and support, a sufferer can eventually live a normal life.

There is hope.

SPECIAL CARE & AN UNDERSTANDING APPROACH

Cleaning the home of a hoarder is difficult, and requires an effective plan, the right equipment, and a detailed execution. Our professionals ensure proper removal of clutter, biohazard disposal, cleaning for salvageable items and a comprehensive cleaning including sanitising and deodorizing.

In many cases, due to the level of contamination in a hoarding environment, our highly trained technicians must utilise protective gear to avoid infection. Not only does a hoarding situation require experts who can navigate the issues, but also people who treat each client with compassion and respect.
