Water & Mold Damage.  One small, undetected water line break, 150,000+ gallons of water pouring through the house.  
The result?  LOTS of damage...  Rust leaching out of the water, mold in the walls, cabinets, floor and basement.
Some examples of gross filth & hoarding jobs
Before and After Photographs
Job Photographs
Please note: You will find no graphic photographs on this site.
Here are some pictures of just a few of the jobs we have done.  These pictures are of
hoarding, gross filth, water damage and human decomposition jobs.  There are no
graphic scenes depicted and you will never find such things here.  The following
photos are presented simply to inform site visitors and to show some of the situations
we run across in our work.  Suicide and crime scene photos are far too graphic to be
posted and no purpose would be served by showing such scenes, so they will not be
included here.
Since the 'before' photographs
would be disturbing to most
people, I have included only these
two pictures, showing the job
well underway and the completed
scene.

'BEFORE' pictures
'AFTER' pictures from roughly the same perspective
Living room, after we cleared away enough debris to allow opening of the front door.
The brown stains on the back wall resulted from bags of feces that had broken over the years of
being piled and compressed.
Due to extreme contamination by feces, we had to tear out and replace the wall.
The bathroom, hoarded full.
Same bathroom, now clean and repaired, ready for new paint.
The kitchen, hoarded full.
Same kitchen, cleaned.
Living room, partially done.                                                                                                            Living room, AFTER.
Floor joist that broke due to the weight of the trash hoarded in the room above.
This was the first view we had of the hoard within.  Early
winter, the door could not be opened or shut any more than this.  
That door was the hoarder's only means of ingress and egress,
as all other doors and windows were hoarded completely shut.  
Trash & filth was 6 feet deep throughout.
These next two pictures show all we could see of the interior from just inside the only access door (pictured below, at left).

Sudden diarrhea attack resulted in contamination of the entire bathroom, to a height of nearly 3 feet.  Other areas of the suite were also affected by transfer as the person moved about the suite.

Another issue with hoarding is the inability to
properly clean.  This cold air return was
completely blocked (as on the right side here)
and the HVAC system could not breathe.  
Once we cleared the openings, the system
started working properly again.

Mold forming behind, under and around        
cabinets and the basement framing, due to     
the moisture.

Rust leached out of the water as it flowed       
from the supply line break under the              
kitchen sink.  As it turns out, carpet is an       
excellent rust filter!  By the time it reached     
the basement, the water was quite well            
filtered, so we found no rust stains in the        
basement.
