What do Bio Hazard Clean Up Companies Do?

Question: What do bio hazard clean up companies do?

Answer: Biohazard clean up companies are qualified to perform heavy-duty clean up services, typically after disasters like fires and floods.  They have expertise in dealing with water damage and mold remediation and can haul away ruined items, clean your space, and coordinate with your insurance company.  Some even offer construction services if you need repairs.  In recent years, some biohazard companies have expanded their services to include hoarding clean-up since often those situations require heavy duty cleaning and repairs.  In these cases, their staff may or may not be trained to handle the emotional aspects of a hoarding clean up in the same way a Professional Organizer specializing in hoarding would be.  If this is your situation, you may want to consider hiring a Professional Organizer who specializes in hoarding (look for members of the Institute for Challenging Disorganization or who have the CPO-CD® designation) who can collaborate with a biohazard clean up company and any mental health professionals who may be involved.
