Each case of hoarding is different with the only common thread being mental illness. Because of the sensitivity of this issue and potential risks, hoarding cleanup should not be attempted by non-professionals. If you or a loved one is ready to take this huge step towards recovery, it’s best to hire professionals, such as ServiceMaster DSI for hoarding cleanup in Olathe, KS. The technicians at ServiceMaster DSI are trained in the logistical and emotional aspects of hoarding cleanup to ensure success.
But why is it so important to hire professionals instead of saving money by performing hoarding cleanup yourself?
1: Access to Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment
Hoarding cleanup experts are well aware of the challenges they may face during cleanup and take precautions to protect themselves.
For example, our technicians may find hazardous materials, such as mold, dead animals, or waste left by vermin. To prevent contamination, cleanup professionals wear personal protective equipment (PPE). This equipment is specially designed to keep those who enter the home safe from a variety of hazards.
2: Procedural and Technical Expertise
Experts are experienced in the proper procedures and techniques for performing hoarder cleanup. This includes everything from strategy and safety measures, to following state and federal guidelines.
For example, along with wearing PPE, our technicians understand that to perform efficient cleanup, they need to start in small spaces, such as closets and bathrooms, before moving onto the larger areas.
Hoarding Can Affect Anyone Regardless of Sex, Age, Economic Status, or Race
3: Ability to Work With Mental Health Professionals
Our trained professionals work with the hoarder’s therapist or mental health support professional to ensure the hoarder has complete control over the cleanup, thus decreasing their anxiety. This partnership is also important to ensure only approved items are removed.
