Dealing with a hoarded home can be a big deal, and having a family member who may be a hoarder can be infuriating at times, making it hard for you to keep your cool. The task is definitely challenging and hoarding sites may often be filled with rodents and insects.
Home is a place where you spend the most time of your day. On an average, a human being spends about 16 hours at home. Even longer if you’re below 7 years or above 64 years of age. Exposure to harmful mould can have a serious impact on one’s health.
Mould has been on the earth for millions of years and there is always some of it everywhere. Like a moth to a flame, mould is attracted to moisture and dampness.
How disgusting is it to enter a room only to be enveloped by strong unpleasant foul odours, smacking straight at your senses? Sometimes living in our homes every day makes us so used to the smells around that we have turned nose-blind to them.
Unlike other biohazard cleanups, a hoarding cleanup is quite different. In the sense, before commencing the cleaning activity, professional cleaners need to have a clear idea of the psychology behind hoarding. This helps to ensure the cleaning is done without worsening the hoarding situation further.
