We’ve noticed several people have found our blog while searching for resources on how to clean up a hoarder’s home themselves. If you’re curious about DIY hoard cleanup, here are a few things you need to consider.

Safety! Safety! Safety!

Hoards are full of safety hazards. They frequently contain tons of bugs and spiders. You must be able to identify poisonous spiders if you want to clean up a hoard on your own.

In addition, the homes of pet hoarders often have toxic levels of ammonia in them from all the animal urine in the house. You’ll need gas masks to enter these homes.

Lastly, watch for broken glass and be careful when removing items to prevent other items from falling on you.

Time

You can’t clean up a hoard in a day. You’ll probably need at least a week to clean up a hoard. If time is of the essence, which is often the case when a hoarder’s home is about to be foreclosed on, you should probably hire an Austin trash removal company. They can bring out an entire team of guys who can get your hoard cleaned up in anywhere from one day to a few days, depending on its size.

Equipment

Many people, understandably, don’t want to put the junk they cleaned up from a hoard in their car to haul it to the dump, but even if you’re okay with putting the junk in your car, think how many trips to the dump you would have to make.

So while you may be saving a bit of money by cleaning up a hoard yourself, you’ll have to worry about safety hazards, time constraints and lack of equipment.

If you decide it’s not worth doing it yourself, you can call Austin trash removal contractor Dirty Work at 512-328-3698 or find us on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
