Nobody wins when it comes to animal hoarding. It can be a very dangerous situation for both the property owner and the animals themselves.
At Bio-One of Richmond, the safety risks are understood. We aim to provide a healthy and livable environment for anybody who’s been involved.
In our experience, the owners are put at great risk by hoarding animals. The danger lies in the fact that they can’t see that. Once the hoarding has started, animals are continually welcomed with no end in sight. The owner tends to neglect their own needs and provide for the animals first.
Hygiene, food and water are the first to be affected by this practice. Animal waste gets airborne and can directly impact any food and water sources. This animal waste could be coming from:
Typically, their waste carries bacteria and parasites which are linked to human disease. Thus, tainting food and water available to the owner without their knowledge.
Much like owners, the animals in these situations tend to suffer from poor nutrition. It’s not uncommon to die from starvation.
These animals get into fights over territory and are frequently injured. Untreated maladies and mental distress from constantly fighting doesn’t end well. It’s not a good environment for them to be in.
We work closely with the owner to ensure these risks are understood. Once that step has been reached, we continue with our cleaning process:
- Any items that have been highly contaminated by animal waste will be removed
- Cross-contamination safety protocols will be in place as a precautionary measure
- Once removed, the items will be disposed of responsibly
Our professional cleaning crews will be able to transform the impacted area into an unrecognizable utopia. Ultimately, we want to leave the home as good as new. Your comfort and safety is our top priority.
At Bio-One of Richmond, we work closely with the Glen Allen, VA community to ensure a safe and clean environment. We strive to make a difference here.
For many years now, we’ve been proud to partner with local authorities, charities and other groups. We offer them the most up to date cleaning methods and techniques to keep our area safe. As the owner, I, Marc Garber, can promise that you’ll receive the best help available from the professionals at Bio-One of Richmond.
