What is a hoarder?
A hoarder is simply someone that hoards: they may be a compulsive collector of specific items, or their hoarding problems may span an excessive number of everyday objects in their own home, including ornaments, furniture and even waste paper and rubbish.
In truth, there is probably a little bit of a hoarder in everyone – it can be hard to throw items away or rehome them when they have served us well, may “come in handy in the future”, or have fond memories attached to them.
Why is hoarding an issue?
Hoarding at its extreme comes at a cost – it can contribute to ill health, cause massive inconvenience and stress to the hoarder and other family members and even represent a fire hazard in the home.
In addition, in the UK, local councils, social services or the environment agency may be alerted when the situation causes concern to other residents or over the inhabitants’ welfare. This can cause hoarders to feel isolated, anxious and embarrassed, thereby fuelling a cycle that’s difficult to break.

Bodily fluid removal and disinfection
It’s a fact of life that many elderly hoarders pass away in their own homes. This can lead to body fluids lingering after the person has been taken to an undertaker or laid to rest. We understand this can be particularly upsetting for relatives, and we offer a bodily fluid removal and disinfection service to deep clean and disinfect the area affected. As bodily fluids require a type of specialist cleaning, certain safety procedures must be utilised to ensure a full decontamination of the clean up area has taken place to avoid cross contamination.
At Malum, our team is equipped to handle all questions you may have when it comes to cleaning after trauma, and this can be integrated into the property clearance service.

Hoarder loft clearance
A loft is a handy spot for even the covert hoarder. If yours is bursting to the brim, or you’ve just moved in and discovered the space has been left in a chaotic manner, give us a call or fill out our enquiry form.
At Malum, our compulsive hoarding service can include the removal of any rubbish or unwanted items that may be clogging up your loft, as well as the disposal of all items in a safe and ethical manner (wherever possible).
Pest removal and control
Where there is clutter or waste, pests such as mice, rats, cockroaches, flies, fleas, and bedbugs will often breed unchecked. Whilst you may hear, smell or find evidence of them, unless it is a severe infestation, you will rarely see them.
It’s essential to deal with pest infestations to protect your health. Indeed, if any such situation is uncovered when clearing a home, we have the services and expertise to deal with it swiftly and discreetly.

Frequently Asked Questions
When a hoarder dies, family and friends may be shocked at the situation, and of course, it has added emotional impact due to the recent demise of a loved one.
We can help you get through a difficult time by simply knuckling down to the hard work needed to get the property completely cleared and habitable again.
Hoarding is often associated with depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder and is a condition recognised in the UK by the NHS as 'hoarding disorder'.
There's no one reason individuals hoard - it could be due to mental health, traumatic life events, disability or mobility issues. Anything that can make it extremely hard for a person to tidy, clean, categorise items or let go of them could be a contributing factor.
At Malum, we're aware hoarding is often a complex cycle to break, but we have seen time after time that afterwards, our clients feel a great sense of relief at having the hard work tackled for them.
