Working with a loved one who has a hoarding disorder can be difficult. ServiceMaster DSI can help make it easier.

If you and your family are dealing with a hoarding situation in Greenwood, IN, you know that it’s a difficult, multi-layered situation. When someone hoards items in their home, one of the most difficult challenges can be to get them to agree to get help.  While there are a lot of different theories on why people hoard, we do know that it is a mental health issue that often affects those that have been a victim of emotional trauma and is especially prevalent in the older generation. Before you just begin throwing things out thinking that it will help, here are some tips on how to make the process less traumatic for everyone involved.

Get Outside Help

Before talking it through with the hoarder, educate yourself on hoarding and seek specialists in the area. Trained therapists or mental health experts will help the hoarder come to terms with their hoarding and help ready them to let go of unnecessary items. Our ServiceMaster DSI experts will work with a hoarder’s therapist or caseworker to ensure that the hoarder never feels out of control and that cleanup is performed within their comfort level. We can also walk you through what to expect during the hoarding cleanup process and how our trained technicians will treat the situation with care and respect, working with all local and state officials to ensure safety and building codes are met.

Understanding the Restoration Plan

Depending on the scale of the hoarding, we can provide complete disaster relief from pack out services, donation of items, disposal of items, and restoration of the property. Because hoarding situations may involve biohazardous waste, particularly if someone is an animal hoarder, we can obtain all the necessary state and local permits to make sure the job is done correctly and safely for all involved. This plan will be reviewed with the residents of the home so they understand exactly what will happen during every step, ensuring they have control over the situation and decreasing their anxiety.

Reconstruction and a New Life

We know that hoarding is a complex and difficult subject, but in the end what everyone wants is a safe home for the hoarder to live in. Our trained technicians will work for you and your loved one to clean, sanitize, and restore the Greenwood, IN, home.
