Hoarding can cause major damage to any home.
SERVPRO of E. Vancouver / Clark Co. has experience with restoring homes that have fell victim to hoarding. In most cases when a family member has decided to take over and clear out the home of a hoarder it is a major project. Depending on how it is handled it may require a therapist present. In this case, the homeowner actually had passed away and we were called in to clear out the home to prepare it for re-sell. We arrived to a full house, there were all sorts of interesting items found and some were salvaged for the family. However, for the most part it was all removed and discarded. We then thoroughly cleaned the structure to ensure all smells and stains were removed.
