Hoarding Resources in Ottawa, ECO-PRO Services Group
If you are a hoarder, or know of someone with this disorder, please read…
Hoarding is incredibly common in the Ottawa area. In fact over 5% of the population the greater Ottawa area suffers from some level of the hoarding disorders. Some of the most susceptible to this form of OCD are the elderly, and persons who have suffered major tragedy or emotional trauma in their lives.
Sometimes it’s a loved one who is in the hospital, and it’s discovered that their home is in a squalor state and is unfit and unhealthy to live in.
Hoarding is an emergency situation and can never be taken lightly, or allowed to continue, otherwise there will be some devastating consequences. Some of the dangers of having a hoarding situation in the home include:
- Fire hazards
- Structural collapse
- Rodents and pest
- Psychological distress and depression (sometimes leading to suicide)
- Animal abuse due to unsafe/unsanitary conditions
- Eviction or action by the city, fire marshal
- Cancellation of house insurance
Help starts with understanding, caring, and making a plan to change
Our professional technicians wear appropriate personal protective clothing (PPE) and respiratory protection during these cleanups to avoid exposure to such biohazards as Hanta virus, Histoplasmosis, Staph bacteria including MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) and E. coli.
