Hoarding Cleanup

Cleaning a disorganized property full of clutter and trash can seem overwhelming. But not to worry — Rainbow Restoration® can take care of removing unnecessary items with professionalism and compassion.

Hoarding is classified as the extreme collection of unnecessary possessions, from clothing and trash to papers and other trinkets. It also presents an unhealthy and dangerous environment that can potentially reduce the value of a property. The risk of fire, insect infestation, vermin, and disease all increase when a hoarding situation exists.

Hoarding Cleanup Process

Rainbow Restoration works with property owners and occupants in making decisions on what items to keep, donate, or discard.

Our teams will:

  • Eliminate all messes, including debris, harmful materials, and animal infestation.
  • Haul away any damaged appliances, furniture, and other items.
  • Sanitize affected spaces to reduce the risk of disease.
  • Dispose of or donate unnecessary and unwanted belongings.

The hoarding cleanup process is completed by following four steps proven for success.

  • Step 1: Inspect Affected Spaces

    Our specialists first evaluate the existing clutter to assess any safety hazards and structural damage to the property. If a hazard or structural damage exists, it must be addressed before proceeding with any cleanup.

  • Step 2: Separate Goods by Category

    As the cleanup and removal process begins, we catalog materials by category so it’s easier to identify what items can be discarded, donated, or recycled.

  • Step 3: Recycle, Donate, or Discard

    Once items have been categorized, we will help throw away, recycle, or donate items.

  • Step 4: Final Assessment of Property

    Once all the unwanted and unnecessary items have been removed, we will help reorganize the space to make it more functional.
