Hoarder Cleanup Tips Edgewater

Cleaning Hoarder Cleanup Tips Edgewater SERVPRO of Ravenswood technicians bagged waste that was not placed in trashcans initially.

Hoarding is a serious condition that can easily lead to injury and illness if not dealt with immediately. That is why hoarders residing in Edgewater, Rogers Park and Andersonville should enlist hoarding help cleanup specialist, SERVPRO of Ravenswood, to assist them de-clutter their home. But even before a professional hoarder cleanup crew like SERVPRO of Ravenswood comes in, there are several different things that you can do to help get the process started.

Here are 5 simple and practical tips from hoarding help that will put you on the right track to finding the solution for this growing problem of yours, which is hoarding. These tips will help you not just to simplify what you are going through, but will also greatly lessen the amount of stress of having to do something you don’t want to be doing anyway; cleaning and getting rid of waste that you see as treasures. However, by following these simple tips, it will help to make this experience less stressful, more enjoyable, and will help to prevent this situation from happening again.

The first thing that hoarders can do is to throw out more waste. Although this sounds like something that anybody can do, it actually is not. With hoarding, one becomes attached to everything, even waste. However, if you don’t stay on top of getting rid of waste, it can quickly accumulate, and this clutter can easily start to take over the space in your house.

Trashcan Placement

One simple trick to help get rid of waste in a hoarder’s house is to put trashcans all over the residence. Have a trashcan in the bedrooms, kitchen, garage, bathrooms and every other room as well. This way, you are more likely to put the waste in the garbage, as oppose to dropping it on the floor or even throwing it in a pile in the corner. There are even smaller trashcans available that will be easier to empty, and this will eliminate any possibility of quickly growing an overwhelming pile of waste.

Vacuuming

Next, be sure to vacuum on a weekly basis. Whether you need to vacuum the entire house room by room or vacuum a little bit of the house each day, by doing weekly vacuuming, you will help to keep the house clean and tidy. And if for whatever reason you feel like there is a lot of clutter, simply vacuum again.

When it comes to hoarding, some people will even go as far as to vacuum their furniture. The reasoning behind vacuuming your furniture is that most hoarders usually don’t vacuum very often. So when the vacuum is out, there is no time like the present to clean something that probably won’t be getting cleaned again for a really long time.

Dusting

Now that we’ve thrown out our waste and vacuumed, it’s time to do some dusting. Dusting is the perfect way to help things to look amazing, as well as reduce any dirt, grime and allergens that may be floating around your home. Especially in the case of hoarders, spider-webs can easily pop up everywhere. To help prevent this, simply grab a duster and dust the cobwebs off the walls and ceilings. Plus, this has the added benefit of making sure your house isn’t overrun with unwelcome bugs.

You may be surprised how even a quick little dusting can clean up so much dirt and dust in a hoarders house. This is especially true, Edgewater, Rogers Park and Andersonville residents, for a hoarder house.

Doing the Dishes

Next is to do the dishes. Chances are, if you do dishes immediately after using them, they will actually get done. However, by waiting to do the dishes until the sink finally fills up, you are less likely to get the daunting task done. What sounds better? Doing the dishes from one meal or doing the dishes that overflow from the sink and spill onto the countertop and stove. By doing the dishes immediately after using them, you make a daunting task much more manageable.

Most people who hoard will find that washing a few dishes at a time is not a problem at all. But when the start to stack up, it becomes a chore that nobody wants to deal with and ‘can be done later.’

Everything Has a Place

The final tip to help with hoarding cleanup is to simply put it away. That’s it. Just put it away. Hoarders start to get into trouble when they stop putting things away and leave everything sitting out. But as silly as it sounds, by putting stuff away it will make a huge difference in any hoarder’s life. Now there are going to be times when you forget to put stuff away. That happens and is no big deal. However, the more you practice it, the easier it will become. Plus, the more you do it, the better you will become at it and the less cluttered you will be. This will also make the rest of the clutter that much more manageable.

Utilizing the ‘put it away’ technique will also help to give you a boost in confidence. It will make you feel good about yourself. When you do put stuff away, it’s like you just conquered a mountain and will have a sense of accomplishment that will come over you. Plus, when you need to use something again, you can find it because it will actually be where it is supposed to be.

There are many different stages of hoarding. As tough as it can be, when you have the right tools and advice, you will be able to overcome even the most severe of cases. That is why hoarding cleanup is so important. When things are left to accumulate, the task of cleaning and organizing become scarier and scarier. However, by following the simple ideas of throwing out the waste, doing a weekly vacuum of your home, dusting and keeping the spider-webs away, doing the dishes immediately after using them and putting things away when they are done being used, you will have helped to keep clutter out of the home. But for whatever reason, residents of Edgewater, Rogers Park and Andersonville, the clutter and hoarding does become a little too much and more than you can handle, it is always a great idea to seek out a hoarding clean up specialist at SERVPRO of Ravenswood, who will be able to help you with your problem.
