Biohazard Dangers in a Hoarding Situation

Garbage, Trash and Debris

Perhaps the most common form of biohazard hoarding is garbage and trash.  When garbage is hoarded instead of being properly disposed of, many biological threats can present themselves within the home.  Remnants of spoiled or rotted food can develop a variety of bacterial and pathogenic threats to people living in a hoarded home.  Infection and allergic reactions could cause severe illness and even death if garbage is left unattended for long periods of time.

Also, the presence of garbage attracts vermin, rodents, and wild animals and insects.  All of these creatures have the potential of destroying property as well as carry bacterial, allergenic, and even viral infections of their own with them.

We have the experience and certifications necessary to properly, efficiently, and legally dispose of biohazard materials.
