How to Clean a Hoarder’s Home Pt6
Cleaning HVAC elements and vents: In most cases, the air ducts in a hoarder’s home are not in use as they have been covered for so long. Get a furnace company to come and assess the ductwork and have them cleaned. To ensure that it doesn’t make a mess when you turn it on, they should clean it. Furthermore, elevated fire risk is associated with a furnace that has not been used for an extended period of time. Take the fronts on baseboard heating off, if present, before vacuuming them completely.
Washing Curtains: Curtains can collect a lot of dust; something that we often forget even in our own homes. Wash the curtains after taking them down. The house will feel much cleaner and fresher once you put them up again.
Arranging The Space
Before leaving the house, set up an organization system. Planning it in advance helps a lot even though the work might come later. The hoarder will find maintaining the space much easier if there are boxes, bins, closet organizers and shelves in place. Make it easier to have a space for everything by bringing shoe racks, clothes hangers, etc. the hoarder will then know that they have to dispose of something before they bring in something new once all these spaces are completely filled.
A trivial but essential item
Bulbs should be replaced. In most cases, they tend to be dirty if not burned out. You can make the house brighter by simply replacing light bulbs. It’s harder to make a mess of a brightly lit house.
