If you or a loved one is suffering in silence from hoarding, the most compassionate action is to return the home into a safe and habitable environment.
Hoarding has been diagnosed as a behavioral disease and can begin as a coping mechanism after a traumatic event. What started as simple packing away or storing of items can lead to a serious deterioration of the indoor air quality as items accumulate over time. Storing trash and mounds of material items can lead to the development of biohazardous waste as mold begins to grow, food rots and insects infest the cluttered areas.
However, the solution to hoarding requires much more than clearing out the excess clutter. It requires a team effort between the family, the individual’s therapist and a trained and certified hoarding cleanup professional.
If you suspect a loved one may be a hoarder, it is time to seek out professional help.
