Safety is our focus, and we do everything possible to ensure that you and your loved ones can return to a property that is free of clutter.
What Is Hoarding Disorder?
People living with hoarding disorder or compulsive hoarding accumulate a variety of items. The accumulation severely impacts their safety, health, relationships and ability to use their living space the way the space is intended. Hoarding disorder often develops after a traumatic event. However, it can also run in families. People with hoarding disorder often have another mental health condition, such as depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Hoarding often gets worse with age. A person who’s affected by hoarding disorder may have been messy as a child or teenager. By their middle adult years, the hoarding often becomes overwhelming. After the years of accumulation, a hoarded property may be filled with items to the point where there are narrow, hazardous “goat paths” between piles of items.

Why Our Professional Cleaners Are the Right Choice for Hoarded Properties in Eastvale
Cleaning a hoarded property on your own isn’t feasible. The sheer amount of items may mean that you’d have to work for months, maybe even years to dispose of it all. At Eco Bear, we have the right skills, experience, knowledge and resources to clean any size or type of hoarded property in Eastvale. We maintain a large team of cleaning specialists who are prepared to clean hoarded properties. This allows us to get through a large hoard in a short amount of time.

How Hoarder Property Cleaning Services Work
Our Eastvale hoarder property cleaning services begin with a thorough evaluation of the property. We take photos and measurements in order to determine the size, scope and contents of the hoard. This allows us to create an efficient plan of action for the cleaning process. We arrange for recycling, dumpsters, tow trucks, pest control and structural inspections as needed.
When the cleanup begins, you’re welcome to work with us or stay on the property in order to answer any questions. You’re also welcome to be off-site. If you’re dealing with the hoarded property of a deceased relative or you’re a property owner who needs a former tenant’s residence cleared, we’ll communicate with you by phone throughout the cleaning process.
Our cleaners adhere to your special requests. If you know there’s a box of family photographs in a room or you lost a special item somewhere in the hoard, we’ll look for it and set it aside for you when we find it. The timeline for cleaning a hoarded property depends on what’s in the hoard, the volume of the hoard and weather conditions for hoarded items that are outdoors.
