Odours and pests are detrimental to the building, as insects and odours can invade the building through ducts, air vents and under doors. Very dirty accommodation can quickly become unfit for habitation, which is why it's best to act very quickly by calling in a company specialising in cleaning and decluttering very dirty or unfit accommodation in United Kingdom.

Regularly confronted with situations of extreme dirtiness and insalubrity, we have a great deal of experience in extreme cleaning, the most complex of which is Diogenes syndrome and hoarding disorder.

Nova Clean is a hoarder cleaningg company that offers you a comprehensive service and a single point of contact for sorting your belongings, disposing of rubbish, clearing out furniture, disinfecting and cleaning your house or flat.

How do you detect hoarding disorder?

Hoarding disorder is usually discovered without the knowledge of the person concerned, who tries to deny and conceal the problem to the very end. It is usually suspected by neighbours, alerted by the unusual behaviour of the person suffering from Diogenes. These are generally people who keep to themselves, are isolated, shy away from contact with others and are very careless when it comes to hygiene. Neighbourhood suspicions are heightened by unpleasant odours emanating from the home and by the unusual presence of insects. People with Diogenes syndrome try to hide the disorder by opening their door to others as little as possible. Diogenes syndrome is often discovered by chance because of a water leak that requires a plumber to come out, by a landlord or by the family.

Signs of hoarding disorder

Hoarding disorder is generally the result of neglect, with the sufferer completely letting themselves go, neglecting all the basic rules of hygiene and no longer maintaining their home. People suffering from the hoarding disorder generally accumulate all sorts of objects and belongings, but sometimes also rubbish bins and excrement. The situation can quickly become extreme and action needs to be taken quickly.

How do you clean up if you have hoarding disorder?

A hoarding disorder is generally unhealthy, with an accumulation of rubbish, bad smells, insects and bacteria. Cleaning up after a hoarding disorder is a difficult task, as you have to contend with foul odours, insects and sometimes pests, and above all protect yourself from bacteria. Protective equipment is essential: overalls, gloves, goggles and protective footwear.

House clearance, sorting your belongings and getting rid of rubbish

One of the most difficult tasks in a house clearance case is to sort out what needs to be disposed of and what should be kept. Sometimes a hoarding house is filled with rubbish bins and miscellaneous items up to 1 metre high, covering the entire surface of the home and making it almost impossible to move around. Even so, you'll need to sort through your belongings to keep administrative documents, medical records, correspondence and souvenirs. Then comes the task of clearing away the large accumulation of belongings and miscellaneous objects piled up on the floor, as well as disposing of various types of rubbish, spoiled food and cleaning up excrement.

The rooms in the home most affected by hoarding disorder

Toilets and kitchens are generally the rooms most affected by Diogenes syndrome. Accumulations of dishes that have not been washed for several months, spoiled food and rubbish bins make cleaning very difficult. Toilets are usually particularly unhygienic because they haven't been cleaned for months, and the toilet hasn't been flushed for weeks, sometimes with excrement on the floor.

Why call in a Diogenes syndrome cleaning specialist?

When you enter a Diogenes home, you quickly realise the need to call in a specialist cleaning company. Stench, insects, pests, excrement and months of rubbish are difficult to deal with. Airborne disinfection is essential before starting work in a healthier environment. Protective clothing is essential to avoid contamination. A lorry or skip is essential for removing waste. Care must be taken not to contaminate the common areas of the building or the neighbourhood. The waste must be disposed of at a waste disposal centre. All surfaces must be disinfected with bactericidal detergents that are effective against micro-organisms and viruses.

House clearance, disinfection and decontamination following hoarding disorder

hoarding house and declutteringIn these extremely dirty and unhealthy conditions, bacteria and infectious agents proliferate, endangering the health of the occupant of the home as well as that of nearby neighbours. We carry out a complete disinfection of the dwelling, both by aerial and fumigant methods, and by meticulous cleaning of all surfaces. We are regularly confronted with cleaning after a death where the person was suffering from hoarding disorder and in this case body fluids and blood are present.

All traces of body fluids and blood must be removed. Fabric furniture, mattresses, sofas and carpets affected by fluids should be disposed of and treated at a waste disposal centre. Carpets and wooden floors that absorb fluids must sometimes be removed to prevent the proliferation of bacteria and odours.

Cleaning a very dirty, almost unhealthy cottage
My tenant left without cleaning my flat, a small town house of 38 m² + mezzanine 8 m² made up of 4 levels that has become very dirty, almost unhealthy. There's a strong smell of urine and dog faeces, and I think I need to clean the walls, ceilings, staircases and everything else to get rid of the bad smells and the grime on the stairs and kitchen furniture. I'm going to remove the remaining furniture, which isn't very valuable, as it'll be quicker than cleaning it, but there's still the small fitted kitchen (4 cupboards above, 4 cupboards below and worktop). I'm looking for a company that specialises in cleaning substandard accommodation. I would like a quote for an intervention please.

Disinfection and thorough cleaning of a substandard flat
I need an estimate and I'm looking for a cleaning company to deep clean my father's flat, which has become unfit for habitation. He was in hospital for several months and can't go into such a dirty flat. Everything would have to be disinfected and cleaned. It's a small 20m2 studio.

Flat cleaning: extreme dirtiness following hoarding disorder
I'm contacting you because we've just realised that my father's flat is extremely dirty due to hoarding disorder. We're looking for a company specialising in extreme cleaning to restore the flat.
I'd like a price range for a studio of around 20 m².

House clearance, decluttering and cleaning of unfit accommodation
I'm contacting you because my father has moved into a retirement home. Last Friday he moved out of the studio apartment he'd been living in for several years. I took care of moving my father's "salvageable" belongings, and a junk removal company will soon be emptying his flat (I'm currently waiting for their schedule) and "sweeping up", as they put it, i.e. a very, very light cleaning.

My father suffers from a deep depression and has probably not cleaned once in five years. Living abroad and not being on very good terms with him, I only became aware of the insalubrity of the premises when I went to collect him for his move last Thursday.

The place is very dirty, especially the kitchen (grease sticking everywhere) and my father has smoked a lot inside over the years, so everything is covered in a brown film of nicotine. It obviously smells pretty bad.

It's a ground-floor studio flat of about 35 square metres, and the lease for it expires on 21 April. As the place was still very cluttered when we left, I didn't think to take any photos, but I can ask the company emptying the studio to do so once their work is done.

By any chance, do you have any work available between now and then, and if so, could you please send me a quote as soon as possible?

Major cleaning of a very dirty, almost hoarding house
My wife is currently living in a very dirty flat that hasn't been cleaned for a very long time and has become almost unfit for habitation. The floor is littered with rubbish and dog excrement. Some of the furniture also needs to be thrown out. She would like a BIG clean-up of her home to make it liveable. Unfortunately, she will not be able to be accommodated during the cleaning as she has nowhere else to go. So we're looking for a professional cleaner of substandard accommodation to carry out the cleaning and disinfection. Can I ask you for a quote so that I can pass it on to the Justice ? You can get in touch with Madame to look at the home, as unfortunately I don't have any photos to send you.

I left my flat for 10 days and it's in an unhealthy state, with rubbish, bins and lots of dirt, especially cat urine and cat/dog droppings.
A lot of things to clean kitchenette, windows, wall, bathroom and kitchen cupboard. Please send me an estimate.

There will be no rubbish and the flat will be almost empty, as we're going to remove the fridge, the gas cooker and his bed (there will be a large table in the living room and some boxes where we'll put his personal belongings). Her flat should be about 50 square metres (maybe less).
