For millions of Americans, hoarding is a serious issue that can disrupt their lives and even their relationships with friends and family members. Hoarding is understood as a mental disorder with underlying anxiety issues that lead to associated behaviors such as the collection of all types of objects and a complete inability to throw anything away. In time, the collection of hoarded items can fill up areas of the home which increases the risk for injury, fires, and mold or bacteria growth. ServiceMaster NCR provides hoarding cleaning services to help cleanup and restore the homes of those in Chevy Chase, MD who struggle with hoarding. We make sure the individual is involved in the cleaning process and we will restore safe, sanitary living conditions.
The overwhelming majority of hoarding cleaning projects begin when a close friend or family member reaches out to someone struggling with hoarding and helps them understand the importance of cleaning their home. People who hoard are usually too embarrassed by the condition of the home to reach out for help themselves. We understand that hoarding is a complicated issue and we work with sensitivity and compassion for the affected individual. Our technicians build a relationship by developing mutual trust and respect with the individual and we also give the individual the final decision on whether to save, throw away, donate, or recycle the hoarded items.
