How to clean a hoarder’s house

Dealing with hoarding disorder is difficult on so many levels. Managing the individual can be emotionally draining, especially if they don’t agree that there’s a problem. Knowing where to start cleaning in a home that’s packed with clutter is overwhelming. These steps will help you take control of the situation, sort through items in a hoarder’s home, and clean and sanitize it so it’s safe to live in again.

Evaluate the area and create a cleaning strategy.

People in hoarding situations lack the ability to distinguish items that are valuable from worthless items, so they tend to accumulate lots of them, afraid of losing one item that might be useful someday. These items quickly pile up and block access to areas of the home. The piles harbor dust, mold, insects, and vermin, making living conditions unhealthy and increasing the risks of fires. It’s important to approach the hoarder and work with them on the situation. Doing a major cleanup without them present won’t address the underlying reasons why they collect in the first place and will create a sense of resentment.
