Main BodyHoarding has drawn much attention, especially in the last few years. Though the conditions and circumstances that lead one to hoard are complex, ongoing research is needed in order to truly understand, treat, or even recognize it as a disability. As Restoration Contractors we are facing hoarding situations on a more regular basis and thus witnessing the impact it has on insurance companies, housing providers, strata owners, condo associations, landlords, neighbours, and the general public.

One aspect of restoring a home after hoarding is Content Restoration: Properly handling, inventorying and restoring of soft and hard contents, textiles, art work and general personal property items has become a specialty service within the disaster restoration industry.
It has drawn much attention especially in the last few years as techniques and processes have been developed that can salvage a great deal of contents that were previously written off.
Understanding today’s capabilities will allow insurance professionals to realize the extent of how these services affect insurance claims.
