Often with a hoarding situation there are hygiene issues that need to be addressed. When items build up to unmanageable levels, it is impossible to carry out every day cleaning tasks in the home. Homes can then become highly unsanitary. Bathrooms and kitchens are often the most problematic areas.
If there are animals living in the property or there is a mice or rat problem, then there will often be faceas throughout the home. This can cause risks to the health of people in the property and the environment.
It is important to call in professionals when dealing with a hoarding clean up, so that all risks are assessed and dealt with correctly. Sometimes items within the home that are being kept will need to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before they can be used again.
Safety is our priority and all of our technicians will wear full personal protective equipment (PPE).
Whether the hoarding clean up is in your own home or that of someone else, please call us today. We will happily talk through any questions or concerns you may have.

Hoarder cleaning is the process of sorting through a hoarders possessions and putting the property back to liveable and appropriate conditions. As part of Clean Tech Services hoarder cleaning, we start by building a relationship with the client, working closely to find out what items should be kept, filtering out these possessions putting them in our safe storage containers if applicable, removing/disposing of the waste appropriately and sanitising the affected areas.
The costs associated to clean a hoarders house varies on the severity of the properties condition, the number of items to be disposed of and how much is potentially needed to be put into storage whilst the hoarder cleaning process begins. If you're looking to get a cost for a hoarder cleanup, we recommend taking photos of the affected areas and sending them to our team who will be able to provide you with a quote.
