Don't Be A Hoarder
Hoarding items can be the main reason why fires start in homes. Fire is one of many dangers in a hoarded home because much of the clutter consists of flammable materials. Fires can also occur when objects cover a heat vent or damaged wires. Moreover, clutter obstructs residents in case of a fire and first responders may not be able to navigate a hoarded home to rescue residents.
When the entire home is clutter-free, repairs should be done if needed. These can include repainting, re-carpeting, or damage restoration (after a fire, water, mold, or biohazard damage). Then, all the contents in the house including the salvageable items are disinfected.
