Typically, most homes will have a bit of clutter, but for others, the buildup and disorganization of belongings can take over the whole house. For those with this kind of buildup, it can make you feel extremely overwhelmed. Often times, it can affect the relationships you have with others and increase your stress.
Flannery’s Handymen have found themselves in homes that could be identified as a hoarding condition. From those experiences, we have learned how to approach each situation and individual or family, safely and with sensitivity.
The Three Parts of Hoarding
- Obtaining objects compulsively
- Saving all objects and never getting rid of anything
- Having trouble to keep all objects organized
People who hoard things, keep them for the same reason as anyone who isn’t a hoarder.
- Emotional connection to the object
- The object might be useful
- The object is considered attractive
For those who hoard, you most likely have an issue with organizing all of your objects and possessions. The amount of items that can accumulate be become overwhelming and if you have issues categorizing, this can make it difficult to organize. The consequence of this is clutter, which then causes stress.
The main issue with hoarders is that it’s difficult to decide what they should do with their objects or possessions. Should I keep it or throw it away? They sometimes get the feeling that something bad will happen if they throw something out.
