WHAT HAPPENS AT THE SCENE?
Studies divulge that an estimated 4-5% of the US population struggle with compulsive hoarding behaviors of some kind. 360 Hazardous Cleanup works tactfully with families and friends of those who are unable to manage their property due to physical or mental limitations. Oftentimes, people do not recognize the health and safety hazards associated with cleanups that involve hoarding/filth in connection with biohazards.
Hoarding can range from very minor to very severe. Extreme hoarding situations are those where a person or persons collect an over-abundance of items or trash. Be it trash, food, newspapers, animals, etc., it has gotten to the point where hallways and bathrooms have been blocked off and are no longer accessible; beds, tables, and other furniture have been buried under trash or other debris. In addition to moving large quantities of personal items, these hoarding situations are often intensified by filth, unknown bacteria growth, mold, and human or animal feces or remains that can be uncovered in the process of cleaning these situations.
It is crucial to consult with a specialized biohazard company that has experience handling hoarding cleanups. The hoarding situation is definitely a major concern, but another factor that is often overlooked in these situations is the emotional and mental struggle with the individual occupying the residence. 360 Hazardous has managed countless situations involving hoarding and filth cleanups, allowing us to work very discreetly to remedy any situation. To the untrained eye, there is no hope for these situations. But to us, there is always hope.

WHAT IS HOARDING CLEANUP?
Compulsive hoarding, or a hoarding disorder, is a complex mental condition that causes affected individuals to experience fear and anxiety when they are faced with getting rid of personal belongings. This is true whether the items in question are valuable or not. The dangers associated with hoarding are evident, and it is important that individuals affected by hoarding tendencies understand the implications of their bad habits.
There are other obvious threats to the homeowner and occupants in the home, the first primary danger is that of a fire. This is because they are more likely to occur, but will also be more intense considering that the hoarded items will act as fuel for the flames. Tipping hazards are another concern, as individuals die every year by becoming trapped under fallen items. Lastly, the health of residents can be affected when allergens, bacteria, mold, garbage, animal waste, and other unwanted biohazard elements gather beneath and within hoarded items.
Biohazards are defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as infectious agents or hazardous biologic materials that present a risk or potential risk to the health of humans, animals, or the environment. Whenever blood, bodily fluids, animal matter, or other types of biological waste are involved, there is the possibility of exposure to dangerous pathogens. With plenty of places to hide and grow, serious toxins and diseases such as E.coli, staph/MRSA bacteria, and Hantavirus can all thrive in the home of a hoarder.
