Clean up a hoarder’s house may seem like a daunting task. Whether you are helping for general health or safety concerns, or if an eviction is pending, the task itself can seem overwhelming. Here are some tips to help start (and hopefully complete) cleaning a hoarder’s house.
After the home (or room) has been cleared of most or all of the items, the home can be cleaned. Many times the areas haven’t been cleaned in years, so use a medical grade disinfectant to kills the germs and viruses that may be present. Clean the walls, doors, door handles, light switch covers, interior windows, window sills, and baseboards throughout each room, including each closet. Make sure that the inside and outside of cabinets are included in each cleaning. You can always hire a hoarding cleanup company /hoarder-cleaning-columbia-sc. Duct cleaning and carpet cleaning should be considered as well when you properly clean up a hoarder’s house.
