Hearts Pest Management – Hoarding Help

Degrees of Hoarding

Nowadays, many of you may watch Hoarders on TV. You may see in these real life situations something about yourself, a friend or relative.

Not all hoarding situations are so bad, so prolonged or intractable.

Maybe you just keep far too many old collectibles in your garage, your living space or the attic. Who doesn´t have trouble giving up old items with sentimental value?

Perhaps you just haven´t gotten around to cleaning and that spring cleaning is a few years past due.

Maybe matters are worse.

Symptoms of Hoarding

Let´s try not to label hoarders. It doesn´t help matters. We are here to help you and provide comprehensive solutions to problems presented by hoarding.

First, can you recognize obvious signs that cleaning issues have now progressed to “hoarding.”

  • Rooms are becoming full and becoming less usable. Now, piles can be seen throughout the house.
  • You are getting complaints from a family member that you are keeping far too much useless junk.
  • You can´t depart with all your possessions but neither can you find or use them.
  • Outdated and contaminated food is accumulating.
  • It is becoming hard to keep clean as bathrooms become inaccessible.
  • Family will not come to your home and those forced to live with hoarding want to escape.
  • Pets are taken over the house. First it was one cat or dog – now a whole lot more!
  • People say the place is a fire hazard.
  • Now, pests are present – rats and mice, fleas and flies, mites and parasites, cockroaches and silverfish – you name it!

Any one of the above symptoms is enough to call in a professional.

How Hearts’ Hoarding Service Works

A pest control company should be at least one of your solution providers for hoarding. Hearts is unique. We can manage a project to recover living space from hoarding. We have provided hoarding help even in worst case scenarios.

The place to start when clearing a home from hoarding problems is to inspect fully for pests. No one should be working in this environment without first ensuring that pest contamination has been contained.

1) Hearts Pest Management will clear all pests such as rats and secondary pests such as flies and other parasites.

2) Hearts Pest Management will help you sort through items. We will work patiently but with prompt decision making skills to choose what can stay and what should go or be donated.

You´d be surprised how often our pest control calls involve some level of hoarding. House space that falls into disuse, where belongings are untouched for long periods and hiding places abound become perfect spots for pests to nest and breed. When food sources are scattered near or in the accumulated mess, pests breed abundantly.

3) Often the state of the home is not just an inside problem. Typically, homes with hoarding problems are homes where the outside too have fell into disrepair. Hearts is the perfect pest control company to stop pest entry to the home, whether they are coming up from a sub-area, across the roof or simply in through a door or window.

4) Attitude counts when working with hoarders, family and friends.

Unique Professional Experience for Work with Hoarders

You have found a rather unusual pest control company, owned and operated by a former social worker (M.S.W.), having five years of counseling experience. That´s very relevant. Understanding and support – not condemnation and chuckles are what´s required. At Hearts, our pest control staff is trained to understand pest problems in a broader context. We demand that our staff be good and respectful communicators

What we feel is outside our expertise, we will certainly refer to the properly licensed professional.

Hoarding Story and Reference

To whom it may concern:I am a retired member of the Institute of Professional Investigators, The Council of International Investigators and the Institute of International Security.

Acting upon instructions of T. E. the court appointed executor of the late S. R. of (address removed for privacy). I was asked to arrange for a company to delouse and clear the infestation of rodents from the property which was a mobile home.

S. R. was a recluse who lived in appalling conditions, his home was about three feet deep in decayed matter, news papers and garbage to which the Sheriff, Ambulance and City Health personnel can speak.

I surveyed the pest management companies in the San Diego County and requested estimates from them to deal with the hazard in the mobile home, from these the firm Hearts Pest Management was selected.

In April of 2003, I met Mr. Gerry Weitz the principal of the company selected. He was given verbal instructions and he and his crew set out to work on an extremely difficult task of making the home safe to work in and subsequent clearing and sorting out of its contents and recovering all documentation and valuables. Many times I had to leave the site but on my return Mr. Weitz handed me valuables, cash, and documents that had been salvaged.

When the daughter of the deceased arrived on completion of his work Mr. Weitz attended with coveralls, masks and boots so that she could enter her fathers home and see things as they were.

He, like myself, and my wife, consoled the young woman in her grief. We all hugged her and took her and her friend to our home for refreshments.

In conclusion Hearts Pest management acted very professionally and thoroughly, with total respect for valuables and the emotional concerns of the next of kin.
