Need hoarder help? Is your hoarder home so packed with stuff that you can barely move around in it? Or do you have so many cats, dogs, or other animals that you can’t clean up after them all? Or have you somehow inherited one or more of these problems left behind by someone else? Do you or someone else want it cleaned up?

Well, call ORC services and we will do the job! We know how difficult it will be, and we are prepared for it, both physically and mentally. No matter how bad it is, ORC Services technicians have the experience and training to resolve the problem. Sometimes, these cleanups will require the manpower and expertise of a biohazard cleanup company, such as ORC Services. Examples of these situations include a person who is an animal hoarder or a hoarding situation that involves an unattended death.
The dangers of hoarder cleanups
Cleaning up the home of a hoarder, whether it be a “stuff hoarder,” or an, “animal hoarder,” can be very time consuming and challenging. There is much more to hoarding cleanup than just organizing and tossing things away. In fact, many hoarder’s homes are infested with rats, mice, roaches, and other animals. They are also a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.
Cleaning up a hoarder site can expose the worker to biohazards of many kinds. The worker must be protected with personal protective equipment through all phases of the cleanup. This includes gloves, face masks, and protective suits.
Caring for the hoarder and the hoarder’s property
The worker(s) will normally separate items into three groups. These will be:
- Items to keep.
- Items to donate.
- Items to trash.
Keep in mind that hoarding is the result of a mental disorder, and it may be very difficult to clean up the hoarder’s home with them there. The hoarder may well have another disorder as well, so you must be careful around them. They most often suffer from obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), and depression.
Because of the above, the hoarder may well need to ask for professional mental counseling before they attempt to be a part of a cleaning-up. Otherwise, they may well have a very difficult time letting go of even the most obvious trash.
