Why Is It Important To Hire A Trusted Professional When It Comes to Homeless Encampment Cleanup?

One of the main reasons it is important to use professional homeless encampment cleanup in Atlanta is because of the hazards that exist. While the majority of what homeless individuals leave behind includes trash and discarded clothing, there may be razor blades, needles, trash, and debris. Without proper protective gear and disposal receptacles, people put themselves in danger when they handle sharp objects in homeless camps. Human and animal waste may also be present. One common problem in homeless camps is rodents. Mice and rats can carry serious diseases that can be transmitted if their waste and carcasses are not disposed of properly.


Although the homeless population of Atlanta has dropped during the past decade, homelessness is still common in many parts of the city and in rural areas nearby. One major problem with homeless encampments in any area is poor sanitation. They are not designed to be permanent and lack proper restroom facilities and methods of trash disposal. Since affected property owners face health and liability issues, they often look for effective ways to handle the cleanup of homeless encampments.

Homeless Encampments And Liability Issues 

The other major reason why cleaning homeless encampments are essential is because of liability issues. Property owners and governments have a responsibility to keep communities safe. Since some property owners feel compassion for the homeless individuals who set up camp on their land, they may let them camp too long. The encampments can grow and lead to escalating problems. By the time well-meaning people realize the extent of the problems, the camps are often too large for them to remove. Due to both visible and invisible risks, we never recommend cleaning homeless encampments of any size; leave it to the professionals. 

At Steri-Clean, we understand the urgency of removing the encampment as quickly as possible. However, we also understand that property owners want to treat homeless individuals with dignity and respect, which is why we do exactly that. We provide notices and try to help people claim any belongings that they want to keep before we clean the area. When we are done, we leave the environment safe and clean to use. Our technicians have the right equipment and know the right methods to safely and effectively remove stains, debris, and hazardous items.
