Cleaning up after a disaster is one thing, cleaning up personal belongings that you or your loved one have accumulated for years is another thing entirely. In the former, you just want the damaged contents out of your house in an emergency, but the latter is not just a test of patience but also brings attachment issues to the forefront.
You might not be able to throw these things out on your own, which is why you should ask for help from hoarding clean up services in Pennsylvania and Northern Maryland.
What Is Hoarding?
Collecting things that you don’t need, in excess, is known as hoarding; it is a complex OCD-like (obsessive compulsive disorder) issue that makes it hard for you to throw away items. This issue arises from several reasons, some of which include:
- You might think these things would be useful in the future;
- The item(s) may have sentimental value to you;
- The accumulated items may be viewed as too impactful in your life to be thrown away; and more.
How Major Restoration Services Perform Hoarding Clean Up
Since a lot of complex emotions are involved, this job needs to be done with extreme care. Clean up on its own is a demanding task; adding emotions into the mix creates a much higher level of complexity.
At Major Restoration Services, we understand the sensitive nature of this kind of work and will approach you and your family with caution and empathy. We always strive to make the transition smooth, ensuring nothing is damaged during removal.
It is up to you whether you want to be present to oversee the cleaning process or simply let us do what must be done. We typically request to have a family member work with us at the beginning of the project to help determine what needs to be kept and what needs to be discarded to handle your possessions properly.
As a major home restoration service provider in Pennsylvania and Northern Maryland, it is our duty to adhere to OSHA regulations as well, so it’s a win-win for you. We know how to get the job done safely.
Regardless of your home’s condition or the size of the project, Major Restoration is here to help you clean up. Give us a call or write to us and we’ll get in touch with you. We’re here to help!
