4 Tips for Cleaning a Hoarded Home & How Bio-One Can Help

When it comes to hoarding, it can be difficult to know where to start the cleaning process. Often, hoarders will have years of clutter built up over time. This can make the task of cleaning seem impossible. If you've recently had the daunting task of cleaning up a hoarded home, you know just how difficult and emotional it can be. Here are four tips to help make the process less overwhelming, plus how Bio-One can help.

Step One - Make a Plan

Before you start cleaning, it's important to make a plan of attack. This will help you stay organized and focused while you're working. Decide what areas you will tackle first and in what order you will do them. If possible, try to get the hoarder's input on this so they feel like they're part of the process.

Step Two - Take it One Day at a Time

Trying to do too much at once will only lead to frustration and burnout. When cleaning a hoarded home, it's important to take it one day at a time. Work for a few hours each day and then take a break. This will help you stay focused and motivated.

Step Three - Be Patient

It's important to remember that hoarding is a mental illness, and the hoarder likely doesn't see their home the way you do. They may resist getting rid of things or may not even realize how bad the situation has become. It's important to be patient and understanding throughout the process.

Step Four - Consider Hiring Hoarding Cleanup Services

Cleaning a hoarded home is a big job, and it's best not done alone. Ask family, friends, and professionals for help or hire a professional cleaning service like Bio-One. Having extra hands will make the process much smoother and help you stay on track.
