Hoarding Cleanup - Steri-Clean® Rhode Island
So what is hoarding exactly? Hoarding is a serious and psychological condition that causes people to compulsively collect things. Many hoarders collect countless and seemingly useless items, and they might also find it extremely hard to part with the items once they have been acquired. Often hoarders attach value to these items that, for most of us, hold no real value or sentiment.
Not many people realize the health and safety hazards that go hand in hand with hoarding. Filling rooms with piles and piles of things like newspapers, magazines, empty bottles, used tins, old clothes, and boxes collect dust and dirt. These areas can often be a breeding ground for rodents and insects, making them rife with animal feces and waste. This extreme filth and waste can also bring with it bacteria that should be disposed of as biohazardous waste.
Just the thought of getting rid of these possessions can often feel overwhelming and distressing to a person who suffers from hoarding. While you may wish to help, a hoarding cleanup is often too big a task to tackle on your own or even with a few family members, and can, in fact, be dangerous to your health.
This is where Steri-Clean® Rhode Island can help. We specialize in hoarding cleanups and are here to assist every step of the way.
