Evaluate the area before commencing clearance
Homeowners in a hoarded house find it hard to distinguish between the items they need and those they do not need anymore. Some family members may be in an awkward predicament where they feel that every item is worth keeping in the house, but clearly this is not the case which is why they need help from professionals. The items they don’t want to lose keeps accumulating, and this is a way to welcome in dust, insects and potentially rodents that will make the entire house unhealthy for living. To evaluate the area, we work with the hoarder and family and give aspects of advice from our experience if it is needed, we also check if there are items stack in such a way to cause a domino effect leading to a possible injury or breakage. It is essential to create a cleanup plan to guide the hoarder on what items and equipment should be kept and any potential issues.
Hoarded House Clean up
Decluttering a hoarded house is a huge task, and almost without exception will need thorough cleaning that can be done for days depending on the size of the house. A large quantity of cleaning supplies will be required once the hoarded house clearance has been completed due to what will be revealed! It may be worth getting a professional cleaner in afterwards if you've not got the time or inclination to do it once you see the work involved. Typically the items that are needed must be available in abundance such as buckets and mops, ladder, disinfectant, sponges, abrasive and non abrasive cloths, liquid cleaners, bleach and of course a vacuum cleaner.
Separate rubbish removal from reusable items
Depending on the amount of clutter, we may need to work with you and operate a two stage clearance process. Stage one would be to gather all the items in one place such as the garden where everything can clearly be seen. Then the second stage would be to instruct us how you would like the items separated and sorted. Items or equipment that can be reused, sold or donated to a charity who may find those items extremely useful will be sectioned from those items identified as rubbish. This is a responsible way to dispose of items that are no longer required by the homeowner. While sorting, it is essential that the items are checked properly to identify damages.
Clearing from top to bottom
While carrying out the hoarded house clearance task, we follow a systematic approach to be thorough, safe and respectful of the items. We begin from the top, remove all unwanted items and household property before moving to clear the bottom, room by room. When we have removed a few items you can start sorting or begin cleaning, once a room has been cleared out by us. This method makes it quite easy for everyone and speeds up the whole process, so certain tasks can start to be carried out while other jobs are still going on.
