Hoarding Removal & Cleaning

Hoarding is often misunderstood as the unnecessary need to collect things. In reality, people hoard for a variety of reasons.

Sometimes they believe an item will be useful or valuable in the future, has sentimental value, is unique and irreplaceable, or is worth too much to throw away. Those who hoard might also feel the items they keep act as reminders that will jog their memory.

BioTechs understands that hoarding is a legitimate condition that affects mental health and often leads to unhealthy or dangerous circumstances. We are not here to judge. Instead, our team is here to help Houston-area residents reclaim their valuables and make their living environment safe and comfortable again.

Pick back up with BioTechs

BioTechs delivers professional and compassionate hoarding cleanup services across the greater Houston area. We work discreetly with families and friends of those who are unable to take care of their property due to physical or mental limitations, or those who need help with hoarder cleanup.

Many people do not realize the health and safety hazards associated with hoarding-related cleanups. In addition to moving mounds of material, hoarding situations are often worsened by filth, unknown bacteria growth, and human or animal feces or remains.

As the Houston region’s biohazard cleanup specialists, BioTechs provides complete decontamination and biohazard disposal services of hoarding-related environments. We contain impacted areas to prevent cross-contamination and remove all traces of debris, feces, blood, and biological materials. Then, the area is disinfected and deodorized. Tests are performed to confirm that affected areas are free of pathogens.

Letting BioTechs handle the cluttered environment cleanup enables those impacted by hoarding to tend to more pressing concerns, such as loved one care. Our technicians are current or former firefighters, police officers, and EMT personnel who are certified by the American Bio-Recovery Association. They are also highly trained in communicating with families facing profound emotional strain.

Hoarding Explained

Hoarding is the persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions, regardless of their actual value. It may be present on its own or as a symptom of another disorder.

For those who hoard, the quantity of collected items sets them apart from other people. Commonly hoarded items may be newspapers, magazines, paper and plastic bags, cardboard boxes, photographs, household supplies, food, and clothing. The collection of items often results in a lack of functional living space and may lead to unhealthy or dangerous living conditions.

The behavior usually has deleterious effects —emotional, physical, social, financial, and even legal — for the hoarder and their family members. Unlivable conditions may lead to separation or divorce, eviction, and economic problems.
