Hoarding is a mental disorder that affects millions of Americans and the more we continue to learn about hoarding disorder, the better we can help those that struggle with hoarding through our cleaning services. The behaviors associated with hoarding are caused by anxiety as those affected develop a total inability to throw anything away which leads to the collection of any items including food containers, newspapers, paper products, and trash in the home. The growing hoard of items can eventually block off areas of the home, increase fire risks, and create unhealthy living conditions by fostering the growth of mold or bacteria. ServiceMaster NCR provides hoarding cleaning services in Fairfax, VA to help those that struggle with hoarding thoroughly clean up their homes and restore sanitary living conditions.
Many people that struggle with hoarding are often embarrassed by the condition of their homes which is why they rarely reach out for help themselves. A close friend or family member must intervene to begin the cleaning process before the condition of the home becomes too dangerous. Our technicians understand that hoarding is a delicate situation and we treat the affected individual with compassion and respect to build trust before beginning the cleaning. We create our cleaning plan with the involvement of the affected individual and they are also given final say over which objects should be kept, thrown away, or recycled.
