Hoarder Cleanup: How We Do It

There are three types of cases, each of which we handle differently, to ensure we provide the client with the most cost effective and efficient service.

When the Hoarder is Still Involved

He or she plans to stay in the home, and needs help to resume a healthy living environment.

Hoarders find it very hard to part with their possessions and family members that try to intervene often create tension for years to come. Hoarders and their families tend to stay at home, not invite people in and hide the condition from relatives and well wishers. But the situation has to be dealt with or it can lead to very dire consequences. We take great pride in working with family, caretakers and the individual to ensure that their emotional health is protected during what can be a difficult process.

Shame and guilt often are part of the reason the situation has gotten to where it has. We recognize that this is a difficult situation, and our job is to make it as easy as possible to restore the home to a physically and biologically safe state.

When the Hoarder is No Longer Involved

The individual has relocated to assisted living, downsized, passed away or an investor has purchased the home.

In these cases we get a call from a family member, friend, real estate/property owner, or estate attorney that has discovered a home that has been neglected for many years and has accumulated an unmanageable amount of things that must be discarded quickly and cost effectively. Bio1 San Diego Hoarding will look for undiscovered and unknown items of value while discarding or donating everything in the home that the client does not wish to retain. Depending on the plans for the property we can also remediate and clean any biohazards that are discovered under the debris including mold, feces, rodent droppings, insects, blood, vomit, and general filth.

Real Estate and Tenant Clean Out

Call us when a tenant has left your property in squalor due to eviction or abandonment, or it simply needs to be cleaned out quickly to get back on the market. We can quickly remove all of the property left behind, inventory if necessary for storage requirements, and finally clean and sanitize the property to enable its quick renovation.
