We use an “f” Order to address hoarding. “Due to the accumulation of combustible material this building lacks the fire and life safety measures to protect occupants in the event of a fire.” Followed by “i) Clear all combustible material three (3) feet from any appliance or heat source, including kitchen appliances and furnace and electrical panels ii) Clear all combustible material so that at least a three (3) foot unobstructed path exists through all egress ways including hallways and exits from the dwelling.

We then add a caution note in CAD, and liaise with mental health/social services.
