How We Clean Hoarder Properties in Desert Hot Springs
Part of compulsive hoarding disorder is an inability to recognize rubbish from a useful or needed item. You or your household members may have an emotional attachment to the hoard, even for items that you know don’t have any financial or useful value, such as newspapers or old mail. Our cleaning team is able to quickly sort through a hoard. We save items that you specify or that we believe are valuable or salvageable.
Our process begins with a thorough evaluation of the property. We look at each room of a home, including basements and attics. We also evaluate any other structures on the property, such as sheds, barns or detached garages or workshops. If the property is also hoarded, we take that into consideration. Our competitive prices include everything that’s needed for complete cleanup.
On the day the cleanup begins, you’re welcome to be onsite. If you’d prefer to be elsewhere, that’s okay. We’ll keep you updated with text messages and photos. If we come across an item and have questions about it, we’ll call you and set it aside until you’re able to let us know what you want done with it.
We handle all of the logistics, including the delivery and retrieval of dumpsters for hauling away trash, yard waste and debris from the hoard. Some hoarded properties require us to coordinate our services with other professionals. We’re comfortable working with the Humane Society for hoards with pets. Many hoarded properties have pest infestations, such as ants, spiders, cockroaches or mice. We also work with local pest control service companies. Most pests can’t be eliminated from a hoarder property until the hoard is gone and the pest control team has space to work.
If your property is in violation of Desert Hot Springs environmental or health codes, we’ll work tirelessly on your behalf to get it into compliance. Our thorough work shows that you’re making an effort to comply with the local ordinances. We’ll communicate with code enforcement officers and comply with their requirements for getting the property to meet code.
In some cases, people with compulsive hoarding disorder may have hazardous materials or unsafe items on their property. Some examples include dead animals, human waste, spoiled food and weapons. We’re prepared to handle all types of hazards on a hoarded property. We’ll also work with the Sheriff’s Office for safe and legal disposal of weapons, munitions and firearms.
