A risk of fire is a reality in the hoarded home which can lead to potential threat to nearby properties and their occupants. If the hoarded property is in a communal block of flats for example, any fire risk is considered to be an unacceptable situation for the premises management of the building and the local fire service. Occasionally the situation can be so extreme that the residents involved face being asked to vacate their home to be able to alleviate the risk of fire.
Fire risks can come from the amount of combustible materials which are built up in the property, such as papers or linens, or the electrical wiring which can become damaged by the weight of possessions; old wiring may be worn out or pests can chew on wires. Pests can also become a major problem in the hoarded home with unsanitary conditions attracting flies, rodents and bedbugs; 24Seven Trauma clean offer a pest control services as part of their hoarding clean up service.
