24/7 Hoarding Cleanup in the Phoenix-Metro Area
Call Now: (602) 900-1322
Hoarding is a pattern of behavior that is characterized by the excessive acquisition of and inability or unwillingness to discard large quantities of objects that cover the living areas of the home and cause significant distress or impairment. If you have a Phoenix-metro area property that has been affected by extreme hoarding, our hoarding and filth cleanup team can help to remove garbage and clutter and then decontaminate and restore the underlying property. Hoarding behavior has been associated with health risks, impaired functioning, economic burden, and adverse effects on friends and family members. It can also be dangerous if it puts the individual or others at risk from fire, poor sanitation, and other health concerns. Due to the extreme nature of a Phoenix hoarding environment, professionals must wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), during cleanup to reduce the risk of exposure to diseases, as well as a host of other risk factors. Disaster Restoration provides hoarding cleanup services to eliminate the trash and debris, clean and sterilize the home, and return it to its original condition.

Resources For Cleaning Up After A Hoarder
Case studies From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The following (edited) case study is taken from a published account of compulsive hoarding:
The client, D, lived with her two children, ages 11 and 14, and described her current hoarding behavior as a ‘small problem that mushroomed’ many years ago, along with corresponding marital difficulties. D reported that her father was a hoarder, and that she started saving when she was a child … The volume of cluttered possessions took up approximately 70 percent of the living space in her house. With the exception of the bathroom, none of the rooms in the house could easily be used for their intended purpose. Both of the doors to the outside were blocked, so entry to the house was through the garage and the kitchen, where the table and chairs were covered with papers, newspapers, bills, books, half-consumed bags of chips, and her children’s school papers dating back ten years.
The following case study is taken from a published account of compulsive hoarding:
A 79-year-old woman recently died in a fire at her Washington, D.C., row house when ‘pack rat conditions’ held back firefighters from reaching her in time. A couple of days later, 47 firefighters from four cities spent two hours fighting a fire in a Southern California home before they were able to bring it under control. There was floor-to-ceiling clutter that had made it almost impossible for them to come in the house.
