The cost of a hoarder cleanup
We get many calls from people regarding the cost of a hoarder cleanup. Normally it’s the children of the hoarder who make the call for assistance reaching out for someone who can get their parent’s home clean and healthy again. Many times the hoarder will no longer let even family members into their home because they are not at the point where they can admit that they have a problem and this leaves their kids feeling helpless in the situation.
Many times the hoarder becomes ill due to living in an unhealthy home and when the ambulance or police are called to the home, this is the time when the home may become condemned by the city and when the hoarder is forced to begin the clean up process.
The cost for this type of cleanup depends on several factors:
1. The size of the job
2. How many dumpsters will the job require
3. Will there be content sorting to be done so that items can be donated to goodwill or set aside for an estate sale
4. Types of contents
5. Condition of the home…is there large amounts of gross filth or is the home in a clean condition
6. Do you want a final clean, odor control or a mold remediation to be done after contents have been removed from the home
Costs normally can vary from hundreds of dollars to several thousands of dollars and the time can vary from 1 day to a week to complete our services.
This is the time that the family finally can get involved and utilize the services of a company such as Sage Restoration.
