Hoarding Remediation by Bio-One

Due to years of accumulation of items in a home, cleaning the area may not be simple due to the effort required and the health risks. Here are some of the dangers of conducting hoarding cleanup on your own.



1) Labor-Intensive

Hoarding cleaning is a rugged job that requires an effective strategy to accomplish. First, you need to decide which items you’ll discard, what you’ll donate, and what will end up in the dumpster. This laborious job involves handling enormous piles of trash, decluttering, and sanitizing the entire house. Depending on the size of the hoard, the task can take a long time to complete, about 4-5 days.


2) Biohazard Contamination

When you start on a hoarding cleanup task, you’re exposing yourself to severe sanitation issues. Dirt and debris collect quick and in large quantities in this environment, making it the ideal breeding ground for bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. Hoarding cleanup means you’re handling different biohazards, including live and dead animals, feces, urine, and other body fluids. Exposing yourself to these conditions, including pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, without protection is extremely dangerous.

3) Mold Growth

Excess clutter in the home limits airflow and ventilation, creating the perfect breeding ground for mold growth. The accumulation of items in the house also makes it impossible to detect water intrusion. Mold removal is an exercise that should only be handled by professionals; another reason you should not embark on hoarding cleanup on your own.


4) Unsafe Environment

A hoarder’s home is characterized by poor air quality. When the habitat is disturbed, mold spores, odor, dust, ammonia, and other pollutants are released continuously into the atmosphere. If you breathe this contaminated air for long periods of time, you may develop some respiratory problems, including allergies. That’s why you need to engage a reputable hoard cleaning company to accomplish the task.
