We Are The Trusted Experts In Hoarding Cleanup In Wisconsin
You may have seen excessive clutter and hoarding in the spotlight of news programs and cable shows more and more recently. Recent studies estimate that 4-5% of people are hoarders of some kind. Whether it is garbage, paper, household items, clothing, filth, human or animal waste, or a combination, hoarding is unhealthy and unsafe. The dangers of hoarding include fire hazard; falls; and illnesses, secondary to mold, bacteria, and feces. Some individuals are without heat or water because repairmen cannot get inside to fix the problem.
Many individuals who hoard are ashamed and embarrassed about their home. This makes it hard to allow anyone to enter to help–especially family members or friends. And yet, many hoarders know something needs to be done or they may need to leave their home.

For example, we have talked with case managers, inspectors, and other service providers. We frequently work with long-term care staff when a home must be cleaned out before an individual can return home. We have also worked with case managers for individuals with developmental or mental health conditions. The goal in each case is to understand their concerns so we can better restore your home to a clean and safe condition.
Hoarding is defined as obtaining and refusing to throw out items that would normally appear to be worthless, hazardous, or unsanitary. When these items accumulate, living spaces become significantly cluttered and can no longer be used for the activities associated with that space.
For example, bathtubs serve as storage for dishes. Living rooms only have narrow pathways between piles of clutter. Beds are covered with food wrappers, books, and clothes. Refrigerators are completely filled with spoiled food. Animal waste is present under the clutter. Hoarding can also be dangerous if it puts the individual or others at risk of fire, falling, poor sanitation, and other health concerns.
