We are Minnesota’s most established and professional hoarding cleanup company.
Hoarding is a relatively new type of mental disorder. While it has been happening for years it wasn’t until recently that professionals recognized this as a mental disorder.
People may say; “it’s just a mess why would we need a decontamination company?”
The answer to that is simple; you may not need a decontamination company if the job is just trash but once you start finding feces, dead animals and rodent droppings then it becomes a bio-hazard situation. Rodent droppings and bird droppings can kill people via the Hantavirus (HPS). In fact, late August 2012 guests in Yellowstone National Park died as a result of this disease propelling the issue into the mainstream media and shedding some light on the diseases.
We work alongside counties and social services as well as insurance companies to provide the most efficient means of handling a hoarding situation.
Hoarding clean up is handled a little different from our other services regarding pricing. Many times the job calls for removal of items versus a decontamination of the house. In order for us to begin pricing out the home for hoarding clean up we must come to the home and estimate the amount of items to be removed and the manpower involved to do the work. We will come to estimate the home free of charge within the metro area of Minneapolis/St. Paul.
We strongly recommend that family and friends work together with the homeowner and a mental health expert to ensure the home is cleaned with as few hiccups as possible. Remember, hoarding is often a sign of a mental illness and without the homeowner being wanting help the job is nearly impossible to perform. We will only provide hoarding clean up with a ready and willing homeowner or under a court/city order to do the work without the homeowners’ permission.
The Institute for Challenging Disorganization has come up with a hoarding scale we use to determine what level of service a person will require to clean up their home.
Many times the people who hoard know they have a problem and want help but are too embarrassed to ask for it, so they suffer in silence. Besides the gross filth problems people trapped in hoarding situations suffer from; often times they have other medical conditions that can be serious or exacerbated by the filth all around them. Scene Clean provides discreet consultations and will provide as discreet as possible cleanup of the filth. Our services are confidential and your name is never sold or used in any publication.
