Elderly are often at risk for Hoarding
Ottawa has a large number of hoarders and often it happens with the elderly. It is a sad situation but it is a reality that the elderly often have strokes or are unable to clean up after themselves. This can lead to depression and utter despair. This situation is often very sad and as family members, friends or loved ones you always want to do what you can to ensure their well-being.

Animal Hoarding is Also a Very Real Problem
One of the saddest situations in the hoarding cleanup business is when we come across animal hoarding problems. It is a very sensitive subject for everyone involved because in most cases the person(s) truly care about the animals but do not realize that they are actually completely mistreating the animals. Often times the hoarder actually keeps the animals after they have died which causes some major issues with disease, insects and in most cases starts a chain reaction which can infect and kill the remainder of the animals present in the home. This is not even mentioning the horrible smell that will occur throughout the home. It is truly a disaster
