Hoarding affects emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. It also creates unhealthy, and unsafe living conditions. There are five levels of hoarding, which range from severe clutter to filled rooms, limited or no safe pathways, unusable kitchen and bathroom, pet feces are prevalent, rotting food, rodents, and structural damage. Hoarding is most common in the elderly population. Often there is embarrassment and shame felt by the hoarder and they tend to isolate themselves and cut off contact with friends and families. The hoarding and isolation combined with unsafe conditions create the very real possibility of injury and unattended death. Many hoarders have passed away and not been found for several days or even weeks. 11th Hour can assist in the cleanup process and restore the home to a safe and healthy condition.
11th Hour has the training, and the experience, to help you and your family. With over ten years’ experience, we have seen and cleaned all levels of hoarding. We take a compassionate, understanding, and non-judgmental approach. It is important to understand the hoarder will have excessive attachment to possessions and it causes them high anxiety at the thought of getting rid of them. They are procrastinators and may have spent years trying to decide what to keep and what to let go; they have trouble making decisions. They feel safe surrounded by the things they save. They will often move things around to make it seem like they have organized and gotten rid of some items, but in fact they have not discarded anything. This makes it very frustrating for family and friends to help them clean, and usually causes arguments, hurt feelings, and high anxiety levels in the hoarder. At 11th Hour we try to minimize the anxiety level and work with the hoarder to help them make decisions. We will clean, disinfect, and deodorize, doing whatever is needed to return their home to a livable condition.
