Too much build up of clutter in a property can be a serious issue and as a London house clearance firm it’s something we know all too well. One of the problems with clutter clearance and the build up inside a property is that sometimes it can lead to hidden dangers which you may not be aware of, including the accumulation of dangerous waste materials.
Which Waste is Dangerous?
Dangerous waste is any type of waste that poses a real health risk. It can be so dangerous, in fact, that you can be prosecuted if it is not dealt with properly. We are often called in to deal with such waste when other people have failed to deal with it properly, so it is a serious issue.
Dangerous waste can include:
- Body fluids
- Faeces, both animal and human
- Drugs and paraphernalia
- Rotting food
As you can imagine, these can pose some serious health hazards to anyone who comes into contact with them so they have to be treated very carefully.
One of the biggest problems we encounter when dealing with a house clearance is posed by vermin. Vermin waste can cause a host of problems including a number of quite nasty diseases, some of which can even be fatal. Some of the ones to watch out for include Weil’s disease which comes from rat urine and can be transmitted through direct contact. E.coli, salmonella and histoplasmosis are just a few of the other nasty ones.
Drug paraphernalia can be particularly problematic as well, and a property which has been used as a drugs den needs special treatment. Old needles and syringes pose a myriad of problems including the risk of HIV and Hepatitis, so they have to be dealt with very carefully during a house clearance.
