Hoarding Cleanup Services


 

The Real Truth About Hoarding & Squalor Environments:

When Hoarding goes beyond clutter, living quarters present fire hazards, restricted

mobility, injury risk and the potential for major biohazardous concerns. Serious

health risks can result from exposure to infestation, animal or human waste,

needles, mould & decomposing garbage. At this stage, the conditions can affect the

hoarder, their family, first and second responders, support personnel, neighbours &

property values.

 

At SteriClean.ca all of our Master Hoarding Specialists and Hoarding Practitioners,

have been certified by CADS. We believe that Hoarding / Squalor is an extremely

serious and private matter.

Definition of Hoarding:

“The excessive collection and retention of things or animals until they interfere

with day-to-day functions such as home, family, work and social life.”

Defining Features:

There are three defining features of Hoarding and Squalor:

• The acquisition of, and failure to discard, a large number of possessions that

appear to be useless or of limited value;

• Living spaces sufficiently cluttered so as to preclude activities for which those

spaces were designed;

• Significant distress or impairment in functioning is caused by the Hoarding.

 

The end result of Hoarding and Squalor:

Hoarding and Squalor can lead to tripping hazards, safe access issues,

contamination, infection and various levels of infestation. Hoarding can also lead

to the loss of friends and entertainment opportunities, loneliness, unhappiness and

feelings of shame and helplessness.
