This can be a sensitive subject and one that many don’t know how to tackle it. Here at PC Dublin we have a combined 25 years experience in the Cleaning/Clearing and Pest Control industries so understanding each industry is very important, there can be different stages to hoarding ranging from minor to extreme. A hoarder will collect stuff and are unwilling to part with it, the medical profession can give some great advice on how to handle it.
We understand and can help. There are huge problems that happen with a hoarding issue, to mention a few examples of the problems we have encountered.
• Lack of Functional Living Space
• Rodent Control
• Carrying out daily tasks
• Fire Hazard
Hoarding has become a massive problem in the past decade, it can lead to issues with neighbouring properties. Pest control dublin have dealt with many properties from minor storing to major. One house we completed took 6 roll of skips.
Lack of Functional Living Space
This can cause trips and falls and as we get older trips and falls can become more serious.
Part of the problem with hoarding that we know is the hygiene factor. When Rodents get in and make themselves at home, it can be difficult to spot. Often times it’s the neighbours that highlight it due to the activity spreading into their homes. The damage they can do is frighting from a couple of hundred euros to thousands.
Carrying Out Daily Tasks
This can come in many ways and from experience can be the one that poses the greatest hazard to health. The individual most likely be unable to clean work surfaces, if rodent activity is present urine especially can be hard to detect. Personal hygiene suffers and often a good night’s sleep is difficult, simple tasks of cooking can be difficult.
This is a major problem as the individual may not be able to exit due to doorways and windows been blocked. It also makes getting even a small fire under control. In conditions that are major it can be fatal.
Pest Control Dublin will carry out a full survey to ascertain the extent of the problem and to give you a fair price to remove and dispose of the items. Specialist cleaning would be required to make safe the property.
