The Dangers of Hoarding
A living room that is completely filled with miscellaneous items as a result of hoarding.
Each hoarding case that SERVPRO deals with is very different. SERVPRO is usually called to a fire damage or water loss job, only to realize it is also a hoarding situation. Once approval is granted by the insurance company, SERVPRO professionals can pack the contents and possibly clean, dry or store them so they can begin work on the fire or water loss. Another way that a SERVPRO franchise may find themselves at a hoarding job is through a landlord, a case works, real estate agents, or family members often after the death of a loved one. Many people with a hoarding disorder do not think that their way of living is a problem, they typically hoard items that others would think of as trash or junk. Years of clutter and accumulation can result in unsanitary living conditions, sometimes resulting in bugs, fleas, and even rats. No matter how severe the hoarding case, SERVPRO will leave it “Like is never even happened.”

Spring Cleaning Your Workspace
- Divide Your Workspace Into Zones:
Determine how you want and need to use the space and set up zones for your daily functions. You may require a workspace for your computer, a library area for your research, a storage area for supplies and a filing area for your archives. This will provide a foundation for a more efficient use of space.
- Keep Only What You Need At Arms Length:
Boxes of pens, stacks of papers and old coffee cups need to go. Rid your desk of visual clutter by paring down the items on top to the essentials only. Supplies, paperwork and personal items should be kept in the zones you’ve established for them.
- Sort Your Catch-All Drawer:
Use drawer dividers to give everything a place, like compartments for paperclips and rubber bands. Go through the drawer every six weeks and clear out anything that is out of place or isn’t being used.
- Eliminate Digital Clutter:
Digital clutter can be just as stressful as physical clutter. Organize digital files and your e-mail inbox just as you would paper files–with a system of logical and clearly labeled folders. Also, keep the icons on your desktop to a bare minimum, and trade in sticky notes on your monitor for calendar reminders.
- Create A Daily Paper System:
Consider creating hanging files or baskets labeled “To Read,” “To Do,” and “To File.” Establish set days for each, so that you don’t get behind or feel the overwhelming need to do everything at once.
- Disinfect Regularly:
Prevent the buildup of dust, dirt, food stains and fi ngerprints. Wipe down your desk, phone, keyboard and monitor once a week with disinfecting wipes.
