4 Challenges of Gross Filth Cleaning & How We Can Face Them - Bio-One of Oceanside

Whether it’s due to hoarding, infestation, or neglect, dealing with gross filth in homes and commercial properties can be quite a challenge. Not only does it pose health and sanitation risks but can also cause structural damage to the property. At Bio-One of Oceanside, our remediation technicians aren't afraid of these situations. In this blog post, we'll explore the four main challenges of gross filth cleaning and how we can face them.

Challenge #1: Health and Safety Risks

One of the most significant challenges of gross filth cleaning is dealing with garbage, bodily fluids, and mold growth that can lead to the spread of infectious diseases. Our technicians at Bio-One wear personal protective equipment (PPE) as we tackle the property to minimize risks. Our remediation process includes disinfection, deodorization, and air filtration to ensure that the property is safe to inhabit.

Challenge #2: The Psychological Impact of a Hoarded and Cluttered Property

Another challenge is the psychological impact that gross filth can have on those living in these environments. Hoarding disorder, for instance, can cause a person to feel overwhelmed and unable to discard items, leading to a buildup of clutter and filth.

Challenge #3: Structural Damage Due to Neglect or Infestation

In some cases, gross filth properties may contain hazardous materials such as mold or infectious waste from medical supplies and medications left behind by previous occupants. Gross filth can also lead to structural damage to a property due to infestations, such as rats and mice, and insects breeding in the mess.
