Hoarding Clean Up

Hoarding Clean Up

At least 1 in every 50 people has a hoarding problem. Hoarding clean up is an important part of a solution. According to the American Psychiatric Association, a hoarding disorder is the “persistent difficulty getting rid of or parting with possessions due to a perceived need to save the items”.

Clutter vs. Hoarding

Hoarding is much more than being messy, disorganized, or cluttered at home. It becomes hoarding when:

● The person keeps many items, even if they have little use or value to most people.

● The items severely clutter living spaces and keep people from using the spaces as intended.

● The quantity of items causes distress or difficulties in day-to-day activities.

Another important distinction is that people with cluttered homes know they need to clean up, but people with hoarding disorders do not realize they need help.

There are also distinct differences between hoarding and collecting. Collectors’ items typically carry some degree of value. They are proud of their collection and display items in a neat and organized manner.

Importance of Removing Hoarded Junk

Hoarding can cause emotional distress and difficulty physically moving around the home, but it can also cause more serious health and safety problems. It is important to safely and efficiently clean up the hoarded junk as quickly as possible.

The severe clutter caused by hoarding can lead to:

● Health problems and death in extreme cases

● Home damage

● Fire

● Eviction

● Legal action

● Conflict with family and friends

Hoarding clean-up is often too much, and even unsafe, for untrained individuals to tackle on their own. It’s best to contact a professional junk removal service experienced with hoarding situations.
