Hoarding and Clutter Cleanup Services

Programs that clean and restore living spaces that have become uninhabitable as a result of gross neglect or hoarding of material goods or pets to the extent that the need to acquire things interferes with daily routines, causes a safety or fire hazard or creates an unsanitary environment. Most commonly hoarded items are newspapers, magazines, food containers, cups and sometimes animals; but mould, human and animal waste, old food, rodent droppings and insect infestations are often also found. Cleaning services take care of bulk debris removal, structural cleaning, disinfection and cleaning of all remaining contents; and are trained to look for and preserve photographs, cash, stock certificates, life insurance policies, collectibles and other items of value.
