n July we handled what, might be, our largest hoarding job yet. The square footage of the townhouse may not sound huge at 2,500 square feet, but the contents clean out, odor remediation, and cleaning that needed to be done made it the longest job yet at 4 full days. The story is a sad one that involved a woman whose son was going through a terminal illness. When EMTs came to take him to hospital after he collapsed, they saw the condition of the home and code enforcement was forced to condemn the home as “uninhabitable.” They wanted to get the house back to livable ASAP so we got to work right away. After 4 grueling days the house was cleared of all the disposable items, carpets were removed, floors were mopped and cleaned, and the house was fogged with disinfectant. Unfortunately, the son had passed a few weeks later, and the owner wanted to sell the home, which I was able to help get it purchased and helped her move into a new apartment. The pictures to the right are the just the entrance hallway of the 3 bedroom home.
While we were on that job I received a call from a retirement community who was desperate because they just found out that one of their residents has bleed and defecated all over their apartment. Because of the urgency of this call, me and one of my technicians left the hoarding job to tend to this job for a few hours to return back and finish the hoarding. I will spare you the pictures of second job here, but these are just 4 examples of the many jobs Bio-One Chester County did this summer.
