Throughout our many years in the cleaning and maintenance business, HCH has been contracted, numerous times, by Medicaid, Medicare, Trust and Estates lawyers, guardians and social workers, to clean and un-clutter what are known as "hoarder apartments". Compulsive hoarding (or pathological hoarding), lately recognized officially by medical organizations as a psychological disorder, is defined by Wikipedia, as the "acquisition of and failure to use or discard, such a large number of seemingly useless possessions that it causes significant clutter and impairment to basic living activities such as mobility, cooking, cleaning, showering or sleeping.
With so many years of experience with hoarders, Home Clean Home has become known as 'the expert company'. Trusted by organizations that have been authorized to take care of these hoarders, our team of Clutter-Cleanup Specialists are trained to work with the needs of the elderly, those suffering from Disposophobia, (fear of getting rid of stuff), and those who hoard-living in unsafe conditions that can potentially cause health and fire hazards. Although we understand that these individuals may be emotionally attached to their belongings, as insignificant as they may be to us, parting with these possessions can cause severe emotional distress. Here, at Home Clean Home, we've developed ways to make this necessary and sometimes traumatic process as compassionate as possible. For years we've cleaned for these individuals and their caretakers, with their odd habits of collecting such things as, plastic food containers, books, old mail, memorabilia, unopened brand new items, and other peoples old items. We've organized a comprehensive solution for handling our clients and their hoarders, and provide a wide range of solutions.
