Animal/Rodent Infestations

Animal waste removal and clean-up

Animal droppings contain the potential for disease pathogens, including roundworms and parasites. Fecal matter from different animals can present various health problems; e.g., rodent feces can contain the Hantavirus, and raccoon feces can contain parasites, like roundworm.

Hoarding Clean-Up Services

Hoarding and hoarding behaviors are serious mental and emotional issues that can cause debilitating pain and isolation, as well as significant physical safety and sanitation dangers.

What is Hoarding?

While the idea of hoarding has been brought to the attention of the entertainment world via television shows such as Hoarders, and the term may be used in a disparaging way, the condition is painful for the person and their loved ones. It is often accompanied by depression, anxiety, and feelings of isolation. Hoarding is a complex issue that manifests in the compulsive collection of - or inability to throw away - things that generally have little value to most people. These items may include large items, food containers (with or without food still in them), receipts, menus, packaging, and "free" things such as sugar or ketchup packets.

Health and Sanitation Hazards

  • .With severe clutter, regular cleaning and even bathing/showering can become impossible. Dust and dirt build up, along with decomposing food, trash, and even human or animal waste, providing a perfect environment for microbes and pathogens to contaminate the home.
  • Rotting and decomposing food is a natural lure for pests such as cockroaches, ants, rats, flies and other critters. Piles and clutter create an attractive environment for insects and even rodents to thrive. They may not even be visible to the human occupants, enabling them to reproduce and multiply without disruption. This can encourage the proliferation of fleas, disease, and dropping urine and feces throughout the home, as well as chewing through walls and electrical lines (one potential cause of many issues regarding high risk of fire from hoarding homes).
  • The dust, byproducts of decomposition, and blocked air vents negatively impacts air quality, resulting in to potential for allergies and other chronic respiratory problems. With restricted air flow from piles of clutter and blocked vents, as well as water damages that can't be seen or accessed for repair, and rotting food and other decaying items, mold is common in hoarding homes. While this is another factor for allergies and other health issues, it is also a cause of structural damage - think about decaying floorboards underneath all the piles of clutter which can go unnoticed and not remediated for years.
