Hoarding turns to mold

1/31/2019 (Permalink)

If you or a loved one is hoarding possessions, know that it is a serious condition. Once you have started the process of cleaning out the areas, you are moving in the right direction. 

Once you’ve brought in professional help and addressed the underlying issues of their hoarding tendencies, you can start helping your loved one clean their home.

Assess the situation and decide if you can take this on without a professional organizer. Gauge the severity of the hoard, as well as how many people will help you with the cleanup. You should also consider your loved one’s personal progress. A professional organizer can be a huge help if your resources allow.

If you decide to work with an organizing professional, they can guide you through the process. It could potentially be beneficial for a homeowner with the help of a loved one remove anything that is meaningful, and then allow a professional company to come into the home to remove the other debris in the home. It could be too much for the homeowner to actually discard the items. 

Hoarding debris or too many items in the home could potentially bring in the perfect conditions for mold to begin growing in the home. 

If you or anyone you know needs help with a severe clean up, call your SERVPRO of Bryan, Effingham, McIntosh, and East Liberty Counties at 912-445-5190 so we can be there to help.
