The Factors Affecting Hoarding Clean up Costs

Understanding the variables for accurate quotes

Not every hoarding cleanup project is priced the same. Here’s what makes each situation unique and how those details impact the final cost of your cleanup.

  • Size & Severity of Hoarding: The amount of clutter and how densely it fills the space directly impact labor hours and disposal needs. Light hoarding situations limited to a few rooms require less time than cases where most areas are inaccessible. Our teams also work to carefully determine what is salvageable, what can be donated, and what needs to be safely disposed of.

  • Accessibility: Factors like stairs, narrow hallways, or limited parking add logistical challenges. In some cases, special equipment may be needed, increasing the labor and equipment costs.

  • Biohazards: Bodily fluids, animal waste, mold, or even invisible viral contaminants significantly change the scope of work. Specialized biohazard decontamination requires specific gear, chemicals, and disposal procedures, all factored into pricing.

  • Restoration Needs: Unfortunately, long-term hoarding can damage the space itself. Urine-soaked floors, pest infestations, or broken items due to excessive hoarding might require repair or replacement services beyond the cleanup.

  • Time Needed: Larger, more complex cases naturally take longer. The more severe the situation, the more hours our cleaning team invests, which may require a larger cleanup crew to complete the work on time.
