What is Hoarding?
Hoarding is a serious condition that significantly affects the health and everyday living of the hoarder. It is a disorder when someone has an excessive build-up or amount of items that they cannot part with. Some people hoard collectibles, newspapers and magazines, clothes, household supplies, etc. Hoarding can be traced back to difficulties in childhood, painful feelings, or mental health disorders. Some hoarders say that hoarding helps them to cope with their stress, anxiety, or depression, but it can also cause those disorders to worsen. When someone is a hoarder and lives in a hoarder’s home, not only do they impact themselves, but it also affects their family and loved ones. Whether they live alone or not, hoarders make it challenging for visitors to come to their homes and seek a social life. Those suffering from hoarding have a hard time removing those excessive items from their home, becoming attached to them, and hanging on to them forever. Hoarding should be taken seriously, and those who live in a hoarder home must seek help before it becomes too unsanitary and unsafe to live.

FAQ About Hoarding and Hoarding Cleanout Services
How Do I Know When I Need Hoarding Help?
When it becomes hard for you to walk around in your home or hard for you to live your everyday life, you may need to seek help. Hoarding is a severe disorder that you should not be embarrassed or ashamed of; instead, given a chance, you deserve to start a new chapter in your life. It is time to get hoarding help when you struggle to cook, walk around, or care for yourself. If hoarding goes on for too long, animals may start to live in your home without you knowing, and you put yourself at risk of a fire or other expensive damages.
What Are The 5 Hoarding Levels?
The five levels of hoarding are:
- Clutter but no signs of excessive amounts at the time.
- Clutter takes over two or more rooms with failing hygiene.
- Disorganization becomes extreme, rooms become unusable, and strong odors.
- Excessive clutter and behavior occur, hazards are possible, flies and fleas may be visible.
- Home becomes unlivable when there is severe unsanitary and unsafe living, rodent infestation, and human and animal feces.
What Is The Fastest Way To Clean A Hoarder Home?
Making a plan before cleaning out a hoarder’s home is crucial. This can be overwhelming, so you must go into it with strict plans and goals. Once the plan is created, the team helping you will begin starting with one room or one section at a time and dedicating one area for a storage area. Renting a storage unit is also a great idea to give yourself some space to remove those items from the area and get a good idea of the amount of stuff to go through next. It is also important to clear out any hallways first so you can move in and out of the rooms easily and safely. When going room by room, make sure you are cleaning and removing items from the room entirely to ensure the job is done correctly before moving on to the next. Cleaning out a hoarder’s home is an enormous and draining task, but with the help of a hoarding removal company, you can get the job done effectively!
What Are The Benefits of A Hoarding Cleanup?
Cleaning out a hoarder’s home benefits your overall health and lifestyle. Some benefits include improved sleep, better relationships, living in a safe and clean environment, healthier life for you and your family or pets, discovering valuable items you may have lost, and improved mood and mental health. Hoarding cleanup should be done with the consent of the hoarder. Removing or throwing away things without their permission can only worsen the situation and not allow them to benefit from some of the above advantages.
