Each and every cleanup is unique and poses different challenges. In most hoarded homes we discover biohazards and conditions that pose a biological concern that must be addressed so nobody gets ill. Bio SoCal is a Biohazard company that specializes in Hoarding remediation when there is a lot of debris, which in most cases includes biohazards.
When occupants of a home cannot freely move about the home, must climb over debris to get from one room to another, or are unable to use the bathroom, bathe, or safety store and cook food in the kitchen it poses a significant risk to their health and safety. We often get calls from a family member or friend of someone who has fallen or became ill due to the excess debris in the home. Excessive hoarding is also a fire hazard and a danger to the resident and their neighbors.
Bio SoCal safely navigates hazards such as rodent feces, human waste, bed bugs, fleas, animals, mold, asbestos, and years of filth and dust hidden beneath, in or behind the debris. Rodents and their droppings pose the risk of Hantavirus, a respiratory disease that can be fatal if not addressed properly.
Our goal is to return your home free of all unwanted debris while finding and safeguarding the items and furniture you wish to keep. Below is a time-lapse video of a hoarding remediation that we recently completed.
