Hoarder Cleanout: There’s value hidden in all those piles.

A hoarder cleanout is imminent when homes become unsafe for those who live there.

Hoarder cleanouts are becoming more frequent. To explain, a shift in the condition of homes has taken place during the last 20-30 years.
For example, we are finding new boxed items piled high and unopened throughout a home.

Encountering a fire hazard or “how to meet your local firemen”

Stacks of paper items and collections of sorts, as well as, common household chemicals can be a fire hazard.  Our nation is overrun with objects to obtain, as a result, some people fall victim to this addiction.  Separating trash from salable items is what we do.

What could be hidden in a hoarder setting? We have seen the worst

We have cleaned it up dead cats, dead rats, rotten food and water damage. For this purpose, hoarder cleanouts are high on the list to tackle. We have over 33 years experience in this industry and, as a result, have established a system of order.

Here are a few pictures of a hoarder home we cleaned out

Endless trash and treasure; tackling it one bag at a time

This home wasn’t the worst we have seen, however, it was right up in the top ten. Located in the East Count of San Diego,

Our job is to create income

 And that is what we do. I just looked up this home and this is how it looks now. Amazing!

For loved ones who just can’t pass up a good deal


Creating income is our number one priority. Offering an interior and/or exterior clean up service, to remove trash and debris, we can gather together items that can be sold. A hoarders belongings should not be underestimated. It is amazing what the general public will pay to haul off if it is priced to their liking. They can’t pass up a good deal either.

Clean up can take anywhere from three days to two months

Anywhere from $15,000 to $70,000 in merchandise sales have been realized in a hoarder home, based on volume, in homes that have been thought to be trash outs alone. If we can turn the “collections” into cash it only serves to offset the cost of clean up. It just makes sense.

Note: This picture is one of our past customers in San Diego who purchased the man and woman’s monkey hair wedding headdresses from one of our estate sales. He was really excited.


He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers’ But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:1-3

We love what we do and believe it shows up in our work!
