Biohazard Hoarding Cleanup with Biohazard Contaminants in Algonquin/Lake In The Hills Hoarding Cleanup with Biohazard

Do you know someone in your life that may be a hoarder?

We are often called to clean and restore properties with hoarding conditions after a water, fire, or mold damage.  Many hoarding situations require biohazard or specialized bloodborne pathogen cleanup, depending on the items being hoarded.  No matter the situation, our team has the experience to handle different hoarding situations, even before a damage has occurred.

Hoarding can create cramped living conditions and fill a home to its capacity.  Often, only narrow pathways are available to move from room to room, and the number of items prevents the use of normal living space.  Accumulation can be in every room of the house and may spread to the garage, vehicles, and yard.

Hazards associated with hoarding include:

  • A fire hazard due to blocked exits and excessive smoke
  • Unsanitary conditions that pose a risk to health
  • Injury or being trapped by shifting or falling items
  • Relationship conflicts, including loneliness and social isolation
  • Financial problems
  • Legal issues such as eviction

SERVPRO of Southern McHenry County offers hoarding cleanup, including situations with bloodborne pathogens.  We are a full-service cleanup and restoration company. We can:

  • Inventory, sort, and pack items of value
  • If needed, kept items will be transported to our facility for storage
