Hoarding is a complex and challenging issue that requires a lot of compassion from friends and family, as well as professional assistance in managing the property. From providing a safe and judgement-free environment to offering specialized cleaning techniques, Grimebusters is committed to providing quality hoarding cleanup. Below, we explore the importance of understanding hoarding disorder and how Grimebusters’ hoarding cleanup services in Edmonton can help in these tough times.
Hoarding, put very simply, is the inability to let things go. Slowly, people with hoarding disorders will find that their home has less and less room, sometimes to the point where the room cannot be entered anymore. The psychological effects of hoarding can be devastating, and the physical effects on one’s health can also be intense.
Hoarders live in homes filled with different items, sometimes the main object being garbage and expired food. In extreme cases, people will discover that rats, cockroaches and other small creatures have made their homes in the piles of things. These creatures and the health risks attached to mouldy food and unhygienic homes can lead to serious health complications.
It’s important to note that hoarders do not want to live this way. It is not a choice, and should, therefore, not be criticized. If you want to learn more about the psychology of hoarding, consult a hoarding professional.
Dangers of Hoarding
In our experience of cleaning for hoarders, biohazards are often present in the home when a resident suffers from a hoarding disorder. Psychological effects aside, hoarding creates a physically unclean and potentially unsafe environment. Clutter can consist of food remains, nooks and crannies, and other elements that provide a perfect atmosphere for attracting rodents and other small critters. Other times, broken objects and unstable stacks of objects can be a physical hazard when maneuvering around the home.
It’s imperative that you do not try to tackle hoarding homes alone. Hoarding locations are considered biohazards, as it is impossible to know whether a pile contains rodent feces, discarded needles, bodily fluids or other materials dangerous to your health. Please never attempt to handle it on your own, and instead contact Grimebusters for professional Edmonton hoarding clean up services.
