do you ever wonder what happens when the police leave crime scene cleaners are private companies that handle the cleanup after the police are gone spaulding decon is one of the nation’s largest cleanup companies handling the aftermath of homicides suicides decompositions hoarding and much more these are our stories all right today guys we have a client that called us back in 2018 when his mother had passed away and she was an extreme hoarder holy smokes not too too bad oh god that is a big ass tree yeah there’s a lot in the garage a lot of stuff there it is it was a tool chest from the 30s had all his grandfather’s tools in there and this one is ‘52.
wow 1952 huh this is an extreme level five hoard watch your header out of curiosity how did the door end up like that eventually we just adjusted it it so many times it just came off the track meanwhile people are just calling the cops oh jesus all right today guys we have a client that called us back in 2018 when his mother had passed away and she was an extreme hoarder we gave him a proposal to do the work and he just couldn’t do it at that point he was super super emotional about it so we kept in contact with him and now we’re in 2021 and he is ready to let go of this house and uh you are going to see kind of how i walk through with it what the house looks like now and what we can take it to okay so like when you in terms of the stuff that you want to keep do you want the furniture or do you want honestly like items it’s little trinkets and like memorabilia type stuff like this honestly like most of all this is just garbage to me okay you know it has rat piss yeah and shit roach whatever all over it how are the cats getting in there’s a door in the window oh okay that’s jammed by a piece of wood okay is that i remember that there’s a roof issue yeah right roof issue and they it has a new roof oh it does have a new roof yeah okay just the inside hasn’t been repaired yeah the inside and the repair okay water’s been off for like five years that’s a good picture of you yeah a lot of hair huh senior year yeah this is a lot for you to take on exactly yeah this is no joke yeah i can see how this would be taxing especially my stuff physically mentally right it is like i i tried yeah i got like this out but this is all like brand new sealed stuff no no siblings all of this is like still in the box brand new but i don’t i don’t know what’s good anymore you know like maybe that like car wash set or just like you know there’s a bunch of random s#!t right exactly how many bedrooms was this again it’s a three bed so it’s two bedroom one bath there’s a there’s supposed to be a bath in the back here there’s always this covered stuff because you know when i grew up yeah like this basically well not like this right with all the piss and s#!t yeah but you know there was always stuff was it always just you and your me my mom my dad oh your dad passed before her yeah okay so there’s like you know this is my old bedroom so there’s stuff in there this one was yours on the left okay here’s like what i’d probably want to go okay so it’s three bedroom done yeah it’s a three bed one two three and there’s a there’s a bathroom back there oh okay part of the process then would be that i you know i go through this stuff and take out stuff that you might want is that is that kind of the yeah the goal do you know kind of an idea like anything of value basically yeah what about like photo albums yeah are you missing that stuff too yeah there’s like photos i mean there’s like little trinkets and stuff but did the roof get replaced before she passed or after before before okay so it’s not that old if you guys store anything in like the attic or anything that i need to get holy smokes not and it’s got a palm in the middle yeah that’s kind of my fault because when i think i was in sixth grade i put it there oh and uh no it’s a beast is there a fence on the other side yeah there’s a chain link fence it’s only like three and a half feet all right so how long have you been getting these code enforcement things i’ve been getting them for a few years now because like i’m letting them go but i’ve been i kept up with it and i cleared the property and i did what they asked okay i’ve just been keeping them today all right i’m assuming there’s no mortgage on it so that’s good at least okay so there’s no insurance currently on the house this is a major rehab that’s for sure what’s on the other side of this we call it the middle yard there’s a way out from the garage leads out here okay from that room up there is a sweating glass door what’s inside of it grass stuff overgrowth shrubs okay so there’s more overgrowth in there yeah yeah this sucks it’s like a big weight on you you know it truly is and i i’ve been dealing with it for like the past five years i mean like relationship i’ve had relationship struggles yeah emotional criminal because of this oh yeah you have nobody to help you out with any of this it’s all on you yeah like do you live far right now i’m in between places i’m staying with uh my mom’s friends okay so um i can even try to get your uh code enforcement fines reduced oh they’re not even fine they’re just like well you know how they put like uh yeah yeah they give you i had one lady that had 150 grand of fines and i got it reduced to 5 000.
so yeah she was she just let it go for like 20 years all right oh man this is a mountain for you it is definitely there’s a lot in the garage but i remember when i was 15 i was able to like clear out half of it half a day oh wow yeah because it’s it’s it’s really just like it’s not it is a lot of stuff yes but it can just come out no problem right right there’s a lot of it i don’t want is this mostly your mom doing this or is your dad doing it too your mom here all this stuff is like stuff that’s never been out of the box but a lot of it i probably don’t even need like i’ll probably take the ceiling meal if it’s like wrapped in plastic enough warning right now oh yeah there is i see him what’s the goal for today search and rescue eric is this your first time in a horde it is not actually i used to do this back in the day so it kind of brings back familiar some familiar times back in the day my family used to buy flip houses and they were foreclosures and people would normally leave their stuff but they’d actually trash the homes and uh we’d walk into them the same way either the walls would be destroyed or the materials would be left and do the same i think the biggest difference would probably be the temperature up in ohio it’s 30 40 degrees and you’re in jackets and sweaters and nice thing is you can do it down here in shorts and t-shirts we would go in with those one yard and 2 yard dumpsters just like i seen back in the warehouse and you would just go in with big snow shovels and just try to clear it out a couple of them were so bad that we would actually go one with a tractor and a bucket and we would actually cut a hole in the door and actually scoop the materials out one of the worst ones i ever went to was we went to this house where there was a foreclosure unfortunately and they cut the sewage lines to the house and they still used it for about two minutes so i’m sure you’re familiar with that one of those this is trash it’s got a hole in it any other boxes like new stuff okay what about that wii u no brandon wonder winner oh oh this is those are a bunch of angels do you want them uh no okay i really don’t so do you want us to start moving this stuff then yeah okay unless you know of something in here i don’t see anything other than pots and pans and yeah really that’s probably about it maybe like little trinkets up on the wall there we’ll start with this room let there be light this was your room right it was okay is there anything that you know from memory that was in here just so long ago really know okay you know as you bring stuff out i’ll probably go through it a little bit and see if it’s worth it i know that there’s like an n64 genesis in there oh there’s books in a drawer and books on the shelf over here and blankets do you want any of these books or anything this book yeah there’s a brand new space bag that’s still in the box right below you if you want to take that out as well still sealed up hmm this reminds me of uh pet cemetery what are the major similarities you’re seeing well because i had to climb up i’ve been like a monkey on my entire life dundee wow that’s pretty there it cool oh wow you got it awesome there it is there was a torch from the 30s had all his grandfather’s tools in wow drill oh my god four batteries they don’t like stuff like that anymore it’s probably from like the 40s or 30s bombers pound red supply last one is 52.
wow 1952. huh yeah wow triple slayer put on what paper is it yeah which what city syracuse harold journal this is this is his newspaper wow look at that yeah this is all gonna be that’s awesome i mean i don’t think there’s anything that he’s gonna want in here we might have to go from the other way now from the inside all i see is a washing machine a water heater that’s ancient and that’s it and everything else is wood and trash this is an extreme level five horde extreme and the chances of getting trapped in here are very high it says sullivan furniture oh it’s the entertainment center this big box it looks like almost like that one now oh it’s a computer desk computer desk now there you go what’s that one that’s what i’m saying worst case scenario you sell it okay it’s going to come down with authority to watch your ankles i’m holding you up with that there’s a bucket full of yard tools do you want that you can sell it yeah all right christmas tree that’s a hard no on that one that’s hard enough watch your head all right sweet man happy first date well the last time you move like this laura more frequent than i’d like to say there you go dude i bit off more than i can chew on this buy hey do you want to take a look here and tell him what to pull it’s so just random i just don’t even know out of curiosity how did the door end up like that eventually we just stuffed it so many times it just came off the track and i think the spring is okay but like the way it’s the way it was wound on i think that size messed up this blower right here we could probably use that honestly because it’s what is it a fan yeah it’s a pretty strong blower you want it oh yeah this is belgium yeah sure it doesn’t crack look at your mom’s pictures and stuff i haven’t run across anything like that yet um that’ll actually probably come in handy because it’s what is it getting warm yeah it’s a high velocity blower nice see any pictures or anything where’s the photo albums and stuff somewhere yeah probably in her room yeah i just couldn’t get all the way to the back yeah it’s i don’t want this to be a long argument surprise no no i get you this is like mentally taxing for you i get it yeah did you want to look at any of these drawers yeah probably i don’t know if there’s like there’s probably not much of anything in them but i think that’s probably just like makeup stuff like that that’s exactly what it is yeah i don’t know that’s stuff i don’t need any hundreds it’s pepsi glass yeah that’s it random stuff looks old yeah jimi hendrix i just noticed that that’s the other one yeah they’re in plastic though yeah yeah right there they’re probably you can probably sometimes you guys hear that oh no it’s probably a refrigerator no it’s not like a kitten there’s one cat male 1 caffeine meal there’s just like film or something in there i mean but you’re looking big more you’re heavy-lifting oh hold on more money i think that’s still okay some of them have like been exploded yeah i asked him if he wanted it no no i can put it in the donate pile all right you find any more valuables yeah i think we’re going to take a small and small these collectible items here can we still put this stuff in here for you yeah i like those candle holders want the stuff up here i’ll probably take the yokiro dog yeah all right sewing machine what was behind the hourglass what is that are they just like marbles rocks you could probably take that down i really just put that up so the cats could get up can get out of there when they [ __ ] get up there and that was old damage from before i had that put on 1952.

the materials obviously that need to be removed we’ve completed our first load for the day we’re gonna wrap things up here today we’re bringing a couple more 30 yard dumpsters this house will probably take right around four to five uh 30 yarders there’s that much contents within the garage and the remaining parts of the house so there’s probably a total four to five days worth of work here uh this
