After The Hoard Cleanup
“Hoarding disorder is defined as a persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions because of a perceived need to save them. A person with a hoarding disorder experiences distress at the thought of getting rid of the items. Excessive accumulation of items, regardless of actual value, occurs.” – mayoclinic.org
AAA Scene Cleaners tries to keep this in mind when we first arrive at an estimate for a client’s hoarded home. Many people have a hard time understanding how we can enter these homes or even clean them, but for us, it’s much deeper. We realize that by taking the step to contact us and allow complete strangers into their homes, it’s huge! If we walk in judging or with bad energy, it immediately sets a tone and may lead them to think they have made a bad decision. We are always open-minded, caring, and compassionate. We are there for them and allow them to share their stories. In a lot of cases, some form of trauma has led to their isolation, therefore the hoard began. We don’t claim to be therapists. We simply offer a human touch of kindness and empathy.
If you think about how much you have accumulated over one year, imagine being deathly afraid of letting anything go as you bring in new items. This is how hoarders feel. They tend to associate memories with material things.
We have been able to offer this service to hoarding clients and have helped so many regain their homes, freedom, and their lives. Living this way does not have to be forever, and even though it may seem daunting to begin a cleanup of such great magnitude, AAA Scene Cleaners can help.
Call (817) 773-3330 today if you, a loved one, friend, or a family member could use our services. We offer a judgment-free zone and a no-obligation estimate.
The world is an amazingly beautiful place, and you deserve to be a part of it.
