Hoarder House Health Risks

There are a few reasons why hoarding poses some serious health risks especially in Level 2 and up.

  • One being the poor sanitary conditions. Typically hoarder houses lack regular cleaning activities, because of this, there tends to be things like rodents and insects in the houses. The rodents especially, can carry diseases which could directly impact your health. Along with this, typically hoarding houses contain animal feces which emit fumes and odors which can be harmful with long term exposure.
  • Second being the poor air quality as mentioned above animal feces and bodily fluids can emit harmful fumes. These can lead to respiratory issues if exposed for a long period of time. Along with this, there is also a lack of air flow so the filter in your air conditioning system can't do it's job properly.
