Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year as it not only allows people of all ages to dress up in costumes and have fun, but it’s also a great time to stock up on and enjoy candy. However, while Halloween does have a lot going for it, it can present hazards, especially to someone who has a home that needs a hoarding cleanup performed. Hoarding can be very dangerous around this time of year, and the following information helps to make it clear why this is the case. If you have any questions and you live in the West Chester, PA, area, please call ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration at (610) 524-8003.
Candles and Flammable Items
When Halloween rolls around, many people like to place candles in the windows, on their tabletops, and anywhere they can find space (including inside carved pumpkins). In average homes, this can prove to be hazardous, but in hoarders’ homes, this is downright deadly because there are so many items piled up in each room. If a candle were to fall off a surface or accidentally get knocked over, the results could lead to a large fire that might be almost impossible to extinguish. A professional hoarding cleanup ensures this sort of thing is less likely to happen.
Restriction of Movement
Handing out candy to trick-or-treaters or simply trying to have a party with family and friends can be difficult when rooms are difficult to navigate, and people who live in the home could miss out on talking to trick-or-treaters. It may not even be possible to hold a party at all without hiring a biohazard cleanup company beforehand.
