Gross Filth is much bigger than dirt.
When considering gross filth cleanup, many will think of an area that is very dirty - unkempt rooms, dusty surfaces, murky windows, soiled furniture, and muddy floors. While this is true, the area is filthy, there are much more dangerous and serious things to consider.
The following are just some of the hazards we face in a gross filth cleanup:
- Human and animal feces (Diseases such as hepatitis, tuberculosis, E. coli, or pinworm can be present)
- Bodily fluids – blood, urine, vomit, etc.
- Mold and mildew
- Food bacteria
- Animal carcasses
- Hazardous waste
- Fleas, fruit flies, or other insects
- Sewage backups
LEARN MORE ABOUT GROSS FILTH CLEANUP AND SANITATION
These issues are all much more serious than a ‘dirty’ house and must be dealt with by a trained professional as gross filth poses significant risks to those who are not properly protected. Pathogens, allergens, and viral and bacterial hazards can bring on illness to occupants and those who are attempting to clean the home.
In a gross filth situation, it is easy for the owner to miss areas that need to be repaired. Because of neglect and the accumulation of objects, an owner may not notice if there is a pipe or sewage leak, damage to the structural integrity of the home, or destruction brought about by rodents, termites, or other pests. Because of the sanitary, structural, and health risks involved, it is incredibly important to hire trained technicians who are sensitive to the situation, and always respectful of the owner and all involved.
