In Brantford we issue Inspection Orders to Single Family Dwellings for hoarding situations. We use the Clutter Image Rating to provide support to our Inspection Order. http://organizeandmore.net/category/hoarding/
On the Inspection Order we have used the following:
The reasons for the Order are:
1)Excessive combustible material stored 3 to 5 feet in height thoughtout the single family dwelling, resulting in blocked egress routes and exits,
2)Combustible material situated too close to ignition sources.
1.Stored combustible material shall be kept to maximum height of 750mm (2.5 feet) in all rooms.
2.Egress routes to exits from each room shall be a minimum of 750mm (2.5 feet) in width.
3.Combustible material shall be spaced a minimum of 450mm (18 inches) away from all ignition sources, electrical appliances or fuel fired appliances.
