Hoarding, in of itself, is a very serious compulsion that affects more people than we may even realize. The compulsion often leads to serious health and safety concerns. Animal hoarding, in particular, is especially dangerous due to the severe sanitation issues involved with animal feces, urine and other bodily fluids. Animal hoarding is a health and safety concern for the occupants of the space as well as the animals sharing the space. Prolonged animal hoarding can also mean a matter of public safety– bacteria and disease carried in animal fluids can spread and make others in the community sick if not effectively cleaned.
Animal hoarding presents a variety of health and safety concerns. Such sensitive conditions require specialized training, professional grade equipment, heavy duty cleaning agents and an immunity to the gross and disgusting. The aftermath of a animal hoarding is not for the squeamish. These properties are often filthy and heavily contaminated with urine, feces and other bodily fluids. For the average person, this might make you sick to your stomach, and it might break your heart to know that pets have been living in those conditions. The best thing to do is to let the professionals help. A professionally trained biohazard cleanup team in Cleveland Ohio will have the necessary training, experience, equipment and personal protection to safely and effectively restore the space to its pre-hoardding condition.
