Hoarding is a very difficult and delicate situation because it is a mental disorder and the behaviors of a hoarder can put them and their families at serious risk. Many don’t realize that hoarding is the result of underlying anxiety issues which is why those affected cannot easily part with the objects that they have accumulated in their homes. It does not take long for these items to build up enough to create very dangerous and unsanitary living conditions. ServiceMaster NCR provides hoarding cleaning services to help hoarders in Reston, VA by cleaning and restoring their homes. We will completely remove hoarded objects and clean out the home while including the affected individual in the cleaning process.
A big part of hoarding disorder is a sense of embarrassment that many hoarders feel over the condition of their homes. Because of this, a friend or family member of the affected individual must intervene and help the individual realize the urgency of cleaning their home. Our technicians are well aware of the sensitivity involved with hoarding cleaning. We establish a sense of mutual respect with the individual and include them in the cleaning process so that they have control over which objects are kept and which ones are thrown away, donated, or recycled.
