Who We Are
We’ve established ourselves as an industry leader through our two decades in the field of hoarder house cleanup and remediation. We are in service nationwide, and have worked in every situation from private homes and businesses to police stations and hospitals, and more.
The Hoarding Cleaning Process
In our 20+ years in business, we have managed to simplify the remediation process from start to finish, entirely taking the burden off of you and your family.
Listed below are the simple and straightforward steps of our Hoarding Cleanup process.
When you call, our agents will ask questions about the property's size, condition, and hazards. We'll ask for information on the home or landlord's property insurance policy. Nearly all of these situations are taken care of by insurance, which means the likelihood of paying out of pocket for an incident like this is slim to none.
We'll also provide a timeframe on when we can arrive. We have several crews working in an area at a time to get you help as soon as possible. We will have you sign a SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) that will detail exactly what services will be conducted, and what, if any, items you'd like us to keep. We work with you to make sure nothing of value is discarded. We treat your belongings as it were our own and focus on disposing only what's contaminated with bio.
We Listen To Your Conditions, And Your Instructions
Our certified hoarding clean up specialists will go through your house with you and determine what should be discarded and what should be kept.
We will never discard any items against your wishes. The items that hold value will be organized, categorized and either kept by you or donated to someone in need of them.
You have a voice throughout the entire process; it is your home after all. We are dedicated to helping you reclaim your life and ensure the safety of your environment.
Pricing & Payment Plan
We make the payment process as simple as possible. Bio Recovery offers various payment options, which can vary depending on the type of hoarding cleaning that is necessary.
Insurance only covers cleaning costs if there is biohazard material present. If so, we’ll work with the claims department of your insurance on your behalf.
Direct Payment Options
We’re flexible with our direct-payment options, and can help you determine the best financing plan based on your out-of-pocket costs and policy payouts.
Victim’s Assistance Funds
We can help connect you with the most appropriate funding sources to help with coverage gaps, deductibles, or out-of-pocket expenses.
Hoarding house situations are overwhelming to say the least, so we are always striving to make the payment one less thing to worry about. We try to help low-income customers find organizations or government resources for possible financial assistance opportunities if necessary.
For your convenience, we accept:
- Credit Cards
- Payment Plans
- Cash & Checks
- Additional Options

Possible Dangers Related To Hoarding
Increased Risk of Fire
The more items around a home, the higher the chances a fire can ignite and the more fuel it has to spread, which can put you at a dangerous risk.
Decreased Escape Room
Rescue crews often have limited access to a home due to piles blocking windows and doors, causing unnecessary deaths to occur in homes where hoarding is present.
Increased Indoor Air Pollutants
Mold, mildew, radon, carbon monoxide, pollen, dander, and cigarette smoke are just some of the indoor air impurities and odors caused by hoarding.
Tripping or Falling
Piles of items and stacks of belongings that start to consume a house make it harder and harder to navigate through and easier to trip on. The risks increase with age; falls are often fatal in seniors that don’t have the strength to get back up.
The more your home stores, the greater the weight becomes, and if rooms are filled with possessions the load can and has led to collapses in a home.
As the number of items grows, there is probably garbage, debris, possibly pharmaceuticals, and if animals or pests are present, feces and urine. All of these are considered a biohazard and the health risks grow the longer they remain in your home. Serious toxins and diseases such as E. Coli, Staph Bacteria, and the Hanta Virus can thrive in your house.
