How do you clean up after hoarding?
When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a hoarder, things get complicated quickly.
First, there is the matter of safety. How do you clear the clutter so that you and your loved ones can avoid falling, tripping or becoming injured by hidden objects?
Second, you must deal with the threat of infectious materials. How do you safely remove human waste and the diseases it carries? What if living organisms -- pathogens, pest, animals, etc. -- have taken up residence in the piles? Do you know what to look for? Do you know how to protect yourself -- and do you have the proper gear and training to stay safe?
There are also practical issues. How do you ensure that there is as little damage to your personal effects as possible? Do you trust your cleaner to treat your items of monetary and sentimental value with the appropriate care and concern?
Most importantly, you must deal with the difficult emotional fallout and the sensitive issues of dealing with hoarding. When someone you love exhibits hoarding behavior, your first priority is handling that mental load -- not figuring out how to handle a complex cleaning job that you likely have no prior experience with.
At Steri-Clean Southern Florida, we are well equipped to help you with all the aspects of cleaning up after hoarding. We are discreet, efficient and highly professional. We handle each job with complete compassion and dedication to helping you. That’s why we’re the most trusted name in hoarding cleanup.

With Hoarder Clean-Up, Doing It Yourself is a Recipe for Disaster
When you’re facing a hoarding situation, it’s natural to feel totally overwhelmed.
For some people, this can lead to a desire to “take things into their own hands.”
Perhaps you start researching what to do on the Internet. Maybe you want to begin sorting through all the clutter yourself. Or maybe you’re even motivated to invest in some cleaning chemicals and really get your hands dirty, so to speak.
If this describes your mindset, we respectfully advise you to stop.
Hoarder clean-up is best left to trained professionals. You want to leave this big job in the capable hands of a company that has done this work countless times. Experience is key. Proper training is absolutely vital. And it’s critical that a hoarding cleanup company has all the right tools, solutions and protective gear to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
At Steri-Clean Southern Florida, each of our technicians undergoes rigorous safety training. We use state-of-the-art tools and techniques, many of which are proprietary.
Steri-Clean has been providing hoarding clean-up to people all across the United States since 1995. We approach each job with the same attitude: a desire to help people as much as possible, to work as quickly as possible and to cause as little disruption to your regular routine as is practical.
Hoarding Cleanup Requires Many Steps. Steri-Clean Does a Thorough and Complete Job Every Time
When a person considers what may be involved in hoarder clean-up, it’s very hard to grasp how many steps are involved.
Further, if you’ve never done this before, you may not realize all the specific tasks that are necessary to protect the safety of everyone who is exposed to a hoarding scene.
You also might not guess that it often becomes necessary to take extra steps and procedures that you didn’t anticipate, as the ripple effects of a hoarding mess can cause additional safety and sanitation issues.
At Steri-Clean Southern Florida, hoarder clean up is our specialty. These are a few of the tasks that we often perform at each hoarding scene:
Safe removal of biohazardous materials -- including human waste and/or animal droppings and other substances
Hauling away and removal of miscellaneous items -- including donations to charity, disposal of bulky or unsanitary objects, recycling of electronics, etc.
Organization and disinfection of all affected areas
Cleaning and preservation of the items that matter to you -- including objects that hold monetary or even just sentimental value
Repair areas of your property that were damaged by the cluttered and/or unsanitary conditions -- even if you don’t yet realize that the damage has occurred
