One Experience in Hoarding

    • 1 bedroom apartment
    • 6 hours
    • 8,000 pounds of trash

Hoarding is a condition that can be a great burden to live with and this was no exception. In this case, the tenant fell over the trash in her Oak Park apartment and actually injured herself. After being taken to the hospital, she gave the property manager permission to have her place cleared out. This is where we came in.

When we arrived at the apartment, our professional crew was mindful of her space and the space of her neighbors. We laid down tarps in the apartment hallways to protect them in the process of trash removal and we worked quickly to limit whatever inconvenience it may have posed for the neighbors.

After 6 hours of hard work, our 4-man team had bagged and removed an entire apartment’s worth of trash, amounting to a total of 8,000 pounds.
