Illinois Hoarding Cleanup

Illinois Services

We’re Discreet and Confidential!

First, I think it’s important to say that not everyone who needs our help is a hoarder. We understand that sometimes, due to illness or work/life issues, things get out of hand and individuals and families just need a little help to get back on track. 

Bio-Trauma 911, Inc. has been helping Illinois hoarders and their families since 2005. We offer very competitive rates for compulsive hoarding and clutter cleanup (sometimes referred to as gross filth cleanup). Clutter and junk removal associated with hoarding typically involves cleaning a building or residence that a reasonable person would find uninhabitable due to a combination of: filth and debris from hoarding, fecal matter, bodily fluids, excessive trash, expired food, odor, boxed items, mold, mildew, etc. These extreme situations often require the services of trained professionals.

The task of cleaning a home affected by hoarding, gross filth (meaning a lot of filth) or excess clutter can be challenging and often impossible for an individual untrained in cleaning, decontamination and odor removal. In addition, those tasked with such a job must be trained in locating and safely eliminating biohazards, which are sometimes found in unkept homes. Blood, mold, mildew, asbestos and fecal matter can contribute to serious illnesses if proper precautions are not taken while cleaning & removing personal effects, trash, debris and clutter from a hoarding site.

Before you attempt to clean a hoarder’s home or a scene cluttered with excess property, trash and personal effects, speak with a certified technician. We have trained personnel standing by 24 hours a day at 1-800-759-6960 to answer your questions about hoarding & clutter cleanup in Illinois and the surrounding areas.

Have Questions?

Yes, we take a great deal of time to sort through items. We never want to discard or donate anything that could be of monetary or sentimental value. Before we begin the cleaning process, we'll sit down with you to create a list of items that you may want us to locate and preserve. As we move items, our team members will not only search for items you've requested but also items that we feel may be of importance, such as: tax & banking documents, jewelry, money, photographs, collectibles and keepsakes.
Yes, we will sort & organize your belongings and store them either onsite or at an offsite storage facility.
If the owner of the firearm(s), or in some cases the residence, does not want the firearm(s) on property, our team will help you to find a buyer for the firearm. Each member of our team is either a former law enforcement officer or military veteran with extensive knowledge of firearms safety & security.
Before any work is started, you'll know exactly how long we'll plan to be at your home or property for the cleaning process. In severe hoarding cases, where we find an entire home, basement and garage is full of personal effects, trash, etc., we may bring in four technicians for up to 5 days. Only in the most extreme situations will we need to be on site longer than 5 days.
