Fagala Biohazard Specialists, LLC has been helping families and friends recover properties that have been neglected for various reasons. This category of cleanup is more common than most believe. We routinely work discreetly with families and friends of people who have been unable to take care of their property due to physical or mental limitations. Often, garbage, trash and other items with little obvious value accumulates to the point that renders the premises unsafe. Besides the fire hazard, odors, and issues with just walking through the home, bacteria colony, insect and/or rodent infestation occurs requiring a trained professional to safely remove the excess and salvage those items that have value. Professionals need to wear appropriate personal protective clothing and respiratory protection during these cleanups to avoid exposure to such hazards as bacteria, Hanta virus, histoplasmosis, staph viruses including MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and E. coli just to name a few. Fagala Biohazard Specialists, LLC can aid in not only performing the disposal of the materials deemed not salvageable, but will also sanitize, clean and deodorize to help protect the property value.

 We are on the national list with the non profit organizations, Children of hoarders and helping hoarders. The only way to get added to there support groups are to have a proven record of families that we have helped post that they were 100% satisfied and have proven that our ethics are high and our service has been stellar.

What we have seen:

As the years pass and our experience grows, of course we tend to believe that we have seen just about everything. Usually we find variations on a common theme:

  • Homeowner desires to keep everything.
  • Homeowner may have too many pets.
  • Homeowner grows too old to keep up with day-to-day cleaning efforts.
  • Homeowner may have mental health issues yet to be diagnosed or mis-diagnosed.
  • Homeowner gave up trying because the clutter became "insurmountable."
  • Homeowner uses pails as toilet.
  • Homeowner uses pails outdoors because room is no longer available indoors.
  • Homeowner keeps clean clothes outdoors to save from odors.
  • Animal feces 6" deep throughout dwelling.
