Hoarding Cleanup in New Fairfield, CT
Hoarding cleanups often involve large mounds of material, which may promote the growth of mold or bacteria while preventing normal cleaning activity or even access to clean water. Some hoarder situations are further contaminated with animal feces or remains.
A recent study revealed that an estimated 4-5% of the US population are hoarders of some kind. SERVPRO of Danbury/Ridgefield works discreetly with families and friends of those who are unable to take care of their property due to physical or mental limitations, and need help with hoarder cleanup. What many people do not realize is how dangerous it is to clean this up yourself, from a health risk perspective.
Our professional technicians wear appropriate personal protective clothing (PPE) and respiratory protection during these cleanups to avoid exposure to such biohazards as Hanta virus, Histoplasmosis, Staph bacteria including MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) and E. coli, just to name a few.
First, we remove and dispose of any unsalvageable materials, following local, state and federal regulations for biohazardous materials. Next, we sanitize, clean and deodorize the entire area, using proprietary cleaning solutions and processes, to help protect the property value.
