Deep Cleaning Beneath The Surface
When a home is completely filled with things that a hoarder won’t get rid of, it is easy to focus on the mess that you can see. After all, it is everywhere. What is most dangerous about these living conditions is what could be lurking underneath it all. When hoarding gets out of hand, surfaces, floors and even walls become a breeding ground for all sorts of mold and bacteria that are hazardous to the health of everyone living in the home. In many cases, it gets so bad that the best way to describe the odour in the home is “foul”. On top of the mold and bacteria, a hoarder’s home is a very inviting place for all sorts of pests including rodents, dust mites, and bed bugs. With these “guests” being present in the home, the risk to the inhabitant’s health is even greater. They will defecate all over the home which compounds the strength of the odour and hazardous materials in the home.
Simply removing a hoarder’s collection of things is not be enough in most cases. The furniture, floors, and walls of the home of a hoarder usually haven’t been cleaned in years. In addition to helping a hoarder declutter their home, Enviropure will also perform a deep cleaning, and call in pest control services if needed. That way, the home will become a clean, safe and liveable space again.
