Having a loved one who suffers a hoarding and gross filth situation can be a very problematic. Chronic hoarding is a serious disease, and breaking the habit can be a long, difficult process, for everyone involved. Forensic Cleaning Australia has seen this problem first-hand many times, working extensively with the families of hoarders, hoarding counsellors, mental health services and hoarders themselves.
Starting the Hoarder Remediation Process
Be supportive, from beginning to end. Encourage the hoarder, and remind them why they’re doing this. Remember that hoarding is a disease, one that is beyond their control.
Preparing For Clean-Up Day
Set specific goals for your clean up day. Initially, goals should be small including clearing a single room, for example, or even a single cupboard space.
Select removing safety hazards. When deciding what order to clean, start with areas that pose health and safety hazards including piles, fire hazards, blocked exits and biohazard waste. No matter how much preparing the hoarder has done, the reality of throwing out all their possessions may be a very difficult thing to handle.
Consider Bringing in the Professionals
