Hoarding Clean Up

Compulsive hoarding is a complex anxiety disorder that makes it difficult for a person to discard or part with possessions, regardless of their actual value. Hoarders may feel items will be useful one day or that they have sentimental value. Many have dealt with this problem their entire lives, and often only after other family members become involved is the issue addressed.hoarder clean up services

In many cases, due to the level of contamination in a hoarder environment, our highly trained technicians must utilize protective gear to avoid infection.
