Hoarding cleanup is more common than most believe. Garbage and other items of little obvious value accumulate to an overwhelming level for the homeowner and often render the premises unsafe and uninhabitable. Due to the extreme nature of a hoarding environment, professionals need to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), during hoarding cleanups to reduce the risk of exposure to bacteria, Hanta virus, histoplasmosis, staph viruses including MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and E.coli, as well as a host of other risk factors. Advanced Trauma Cleanup assists individuals in the Chicago area with the disposal of unsalvageable materials as well as clean, sanitize and deodorize to help protect the property value.
Hoarding is a pattern of behavior that is characterized by an excessive acquisition of and inability to discard of large quantities of objects that generally qualify as useless or without value. It often impacts health, safety and relationships with friends and family. Hoarding will reach a level that prevents typical use of space and can lead to fire, falling, sanitation and health risks. Advanced Trauma Cleanup can work with families and local agencies in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs to eliminate the trash and debris, clean and sterilize the home, and return it to its original condition.
