One thing that can help to begin the process of healing when it comes to hoarding is professional counseling. We partner with a number of trained and licensed counselors who can help people with this difficulty. They can also help to relate the sometimes unknown dangers of hoarding.
Years of built up items from hoarding can have many negative and potentially dangerous effects such as blocking exits that pose as a barrier to first responders, blocking heating vents that pose a fire hazard and piles of porous materials like clothes that can harbor potentially deadly mold.
In addition to these dangers there is also the risk of putrefaction of various types of substances, some of which can be highly toxic and become a food source for insects and rodents.
Rodents in particular are often associated with hoarding and can carry deadly diseases, ticks and fleas which can also carry dangerous bacteria and blood borne pathogens. Rodent and other animal droppings can carry E. coli and other seriously hazardous contagions as well.
The hoarding cleaning experts at Richmond Crime Scene Clean Up can help to remove and haul away various items, separating common refuse from what is potentially infectious waste and dispose of it properly.

Hoarding Clean Up Specialists
Richmond Crime Scene Clean Up has been in the cleaning business so long that we truly understand our customers. Hoarding has been recognized as a psychological disorder. It is not so different from an addiction. Hoarders are quite helpless in the face of what they are dealing with. In fact, they are the biggest victims of their psychological problem.
Hoarding often leads to breakouts of diseases, bouts of allergies, severe infestations, and a host of life threatening issues. We believe it is our duty to help people when they are at their most vulnerable self. Therefore, our cleaning professionals are trained to be understanding and helpful to the hoarders by being empathic about their problems.
We understand that more often that not, there is a more severe problem lying under the hoarding problem. Hoarders have a symbolic or sentimental attachment to many of the things that they have hoarded over the years. Naturally, they don’t want to part with them. Our courteous, polite, and understanding professionals will sift through tons of clutter to salvage anything that is even remotely valuable to the people.
Whether you have stuffed your jewelry somewhere in there, lost some important documents, or have trouble finding a photo of a loved one, there is nothing to worry about.

Of all the things that people praise us for, one thing that we take great pride in is our discreetness. When you hire us, professionals walk in through your door, and professionals will leave out of it. That’s it. They carry nothing out of there, except your trash.

After all of the items have been removed we conduct a complete inspection of the hoarding area(s) with a particular eye for flooring. Waste and other fluids that have sat for a long period of time may have seeped through cracks in flooring and affected the sub-floors and other area such as between walls. If this is found to be the case, the affected surfaces will need to be removed and replaced.
After an inspection is completed and all contaminated items have been removed, our team will clean and sanitize the area(s) as well as deodorize.
We use forensic techniques to ensure that no pathogens remain before we consider a hoarding cleanup a success.
