HOARDERS CLEAN


ARE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE SUFFERING WITH THE EFFECTS OF HOARDING?

It is important to understand that hoarding is more than a messy house; It's a form of clutter and build up that can threaten you or your loved ones safety. In most cases emotional barriers prevent them from clearing their living space.


It is when there are heath concerns safety concerns or risk of homelessness that professionals need to be called in.

With our assessment we can help to have that critical conversation needed in order for the client to recognise their situation for what it is. We work beside our clients, with discretion & compassion, from that first conversation - through the clearance - through the clean - all the way through to follow up support.



As specialists trained in Biohazardous cleans and also trained in dealing with mental health issues compassionately we work on a 10 point check list - always including the client in every step.


1. MEET THE CLIENT and assess their situation.

2. EXPLAIN THE DANGERS posed including toxic mould growth, insect & rodent infestations, fire & electrical hazards, possible structural damage. This is often the tipping point for the Hoarder to accept help.

3. GET THE CLIENT INVOLVED we always value his/her/their input we are respectful & compassionate. Team work is how we make things right for them

4. OUTLINE A PLAN for keeping and discarding items.

5. WE ARE PATIENT AND WORK AT THE CLIENTS PACE. Starting in a small area one room at a time. Always getting permission before moving storing and discarding.

6. CREATE A STRATERGY FOR TRASH REMOVAL Separating normal rubbish from hazardous waste.

7. RECOGNISE WHAT CAN BE RECOVERED ie things with strong sentimental value or things that can be restored and made useful.

8. OFF SITE STORAGE (OPTIONAL) To be used as a transitional area which can be less traumatic than instant removal.

9. PROVIDE A PROFESSIONAL CLEANING SERVICE including decontamination as required. (eg mould/pests/biohazardous waste)

10. HELP TO ADDRESS THE DISORDER - We put the client in touch with local organisations and/or outreach programs.

MOULD REMOVAL

IS YOUR PROPERTY OVERRUN WITH

MOULD?

A buildup of excess moisture in a property gives mould its perfect growth conditions. Problems such as flooding, rising damp, leaking pipes, blown double glazing, or even just keeping a property too cold can create the moist conditions that mould needs to grow.

If you have:

A musty smell, Damp patches, Mould around your window frames, Mould on furniture, mattresses, walls, ceilings or doors..


It is important to understand that most household treatments for mould contain bleach which actually feeds fungus. It will bleach the appearance of the mould, so it looks gone, but without getting into the spores of the fungus, the mould will simply take the food and begin to grow into the walls instead of out of them, until it is out of control. Professional treatment is recommended in order to eradicate the growth before it takes hold.



Keep yourself safe. Keep your tenants safe. Get your property treated. Once you have dealt with the underlying cause of the damp and excess moisture, let us eradicate your mould to create a healthy environment.

ACT FAST..

It is important to act fast before the problem affects your health or the health of your tenants. When left unchecked, mould can grow into your walls, floors and ceilings and even affect building materials.


The Government's Housing Health and Safety Rating System has classified mould as Category 1 risk to health, this is the same rating given to asbestos. Alongside this rating 'Awaabs Law' has been passed - making it a legal requirement for a landlord to deal with mould in a timely manner.


MINOR SYMPTOMS INCLUDE..


+Muscle Pain +Fatigue

+Headaches +Sinus Issues+Respiratory illnesses


Mould can be incredibly dangerous for anyone with an existing respiratory condition, the very young, the very old and those suffering from a weakened immune system.


Keep yourself safe. Keep your tenants safe. Get your property treated. Once you have dealt with the underlying cause of the damp and excess moisture, let us eradicate your mould to create a healthy environment.

DECOMPOSITION / TRAUMA / CRIME SCENE CLEAN UP

There is no greater pain than losing a loved one. The loss is tragic. When a death is unattended it is usually because the person involved is not socially active, which can lead to the body not being found for several days, or even weeks. Unfortunately, it is not the Emergency Services job to clean up the scene of the death. The clean up falls to either the grieving family or the premises owner.

It's a very delicate subject to broach with the bereaved, but human decomposition constitutes a biohazard. Even when there is no blood decomposition involves the breakdown of organic matter, which can release harmful pathogens and bacteria. Cleaning up decomposed materials without proper protection can expose individuals to these biohazards.


Odor and Airborne Particles: The strong odor from decomposition can be overwhelming and unpleasant. Additionally, airborne particles (such as dust, mold spores, and bacteria) can be released during the cleaning process, posing a risk to respiratory health.

Psychological Impact: Decomposition scenes can be emotionally distressing, especially if they involve a loved one. Cleaning up such scenes can be traumatic and may lead to psychological stress or anxiety.

Infection Transmission: If the decomposition is due to an infectious disease, there is a risk of transmission during cleaning. Proper precautions, including personal protective equipment (PPE), are essential to minimize this risk.

Chemical Exposure: Cleaning agents used during decomposition cleaning may contain strong chemicals. Improper handling or mixing of cleaning products can result in chemical exposure.

Legal and Regulatory Compliance: Failing to follow proper procedures for decomposition cleaning can lead to legal and regulatory consequences. Compliance with health and safety guidelines is crucial.

Cross-Contamination: Inadequate cleaning practices can lead to cross-contamination, spreading biohazards to other areas. Thorough decontamination is necessary to prevent this.

Note: It is highly recommended to hire professional decomposition cleaning services to handle these situations. They have the expertise, equipment, and training to safely and effectively manage the risks associated with decomposition cleanup.

We are trained biohazard cleaning professionals, with further training in dealing with the bereaved. We quickly and tactfully remove, sterilise and deep clean all affected areas, using the correct PPE, chemicals and bio hazardous waste removal procedures. When the death happened in a bed we will also offer a replacement mattress for the one we remove.

__________________________________
Biohaz-guard team did an amazing job in our house in November 2023; when we were extremely worried about recurrent mould in several rooms (we have 2 little kids). They were really concientious and good in their communications with us (started with an in-depth assessment in each room, while they explained all the steps to us), very thorough in their cleaning and painting services, and reasonably priced! We can't recommend enough. The mould is FINALLY gone.
