Senior squalor syndrome, also known as senile squalor disorder, Plyushkin’s syndrome, or Havisham syndrome, may have one more of the following characteristics -- neglect of one’s body, squalid living conditions, social withdrawal, generalized apathy, or the tendency to hoard useless items of trash and junk. The description usually applies to the condition of affected senior citizens, but this disorder can be found in younger people.

Case Study: Hazardous Clean-up Saves Homes

We often rescue houses just before the health department is ready to order demolition. In many cases, residents' mental or physical conditions have prevented them from cleaning their homes for years. We may find carcasses of long-departed pets, pest infestations, or six-foot stacks of trash throughout the entire house, garage, basement, and attic. Sometimes plumbing hasn't worked for years, so people have accumulated bodily wastes in indoor piles. We work these jobsites with full protective gear and respiratory protection.
