Cleaning a Hoarder's Kitchen
Hoarding is a mental illness that can become so severe that the person's health and life are in jeopardy.
Piles of debris provides fuel for fire and homes for rodents and insects. The problem is especially bad when the hoarder lives in a multi-unit dwelling. The odor, bacteria, rodents and threat of fire, often affects neighboring units that are along side, above and below the offending unit.
Research concerning hoarders reports that the majority of hoarders are older, single women and a large percent of hoarders have alcohol or drug problems too. These statistics indicate that hoarders might be impaired and are prone to having accidents in their homes.
SERVPRO of Stockton has ample experience in cleaning up the clutter and debris of hoarder scenes for relatives and landlords that inherit the mess.
