How Restoration can Help in Hoarding Situations

Individuals become hoarders for multiple reasons. Once they decide to take steps to reduce the clutter and clean up the premises, a restoration company can be extremely beneficial and play a critical role in the cleanup process.

Hoarding is a mental disorder with complex and complicated causes. It’s extremely important that the restoration personnel that responds to such a situation employ empathy toward the individual, while remaining cognizant of the many dangerous and unhealthy conditions they’ll encounter.

A hoarding situation creates a number of potentially toxic substances, along with insect and rodent infestations. When pets are involved, sadly there may be feces and even pet corpses. No matter how bad family and friends believe the situation to be, it’s almost always worse.

A hoarding situation can contain mold, bacterial and viral pathogens. Restoration professionals may also encounter urine and similar substances that are biohazards. The experts are specially trained to safely contain, mitigate, collect, and dispose of any type of hazardous substance in ways that are state and federally approved.

Many people have the impression that it’s an “all or nothing” approach and that every item in the home must be discarded. The good news is that restoration specialists have modern techniques that can be used to salvage a number of items ranging from drapes and electronics to furnishings.

In many instances, there has been a deterioration of the premises. It can take many forms ranging from water leaks to decomposition. If those problems exist, a restoration company is fully equipped to work with clients on repair strategies. Restoration companies also work with an individual’s insurance company.

A restoration specialist is a highly trained professional that has the protective gear, tools, techniques and protocols for the difficult task of clean up in a hoarder situation. They’ll decontaminate, sanitize and deodorize the premises, allowing an individual to begin a new chapter of their lives.
