| Hoarding Disorder

A hoarding disorder is classified as a behavior related to a person having difficulty discarding possessions. Belongings accumulating in the home may bring back good memories and be hard to part with – that is understood. Unfortunately, there may come a time where the collection makes daily life more difficult and even poses safety threats to others at someone’s home or business. If you are concerned with the condition of your home, give us a call and we can assist you in planning your next step with a cleanup.

Possible Dangers Related To Hoarding:

•  Increased Risk of Fire products: The more items around the home the higher the chances a fire can ignite and the more fuel it has to spread, which can put you at a dangerous risk.

• Decreased Escape Routes: Rescue crews often have limited access to a home due to piles blocking windows, doors and deaths occur in homes where hoarding is present, when salvation could have been otherwise possible.

• Increased Indoor Air Pollutants: Mold, Mildew, Radon, Carbon Monoxide, Pollen, Dander and Cigarette Smoke are just some of the indoor serious air impurities and odors that hoarding can cause a contaminated house and the results can lead to adverse health effects.

• Tripping or Falling: Piles of items and stacks of belonging that start to consume a house make it harder and harder to navigate through and easier to stumble upon. The risks increase with age, falls can even be fatal in seniors that don’t have the strength to get back up.

• Structure Collapses: The more your home stores, the greater the weight becomes, and if rooms are filled with possessions the load can and have led to collapses in a home.

• Biohazard Development: If items are growing at an alarming rate, there is probably a good portion of garbage, debris possibly pharmaceuticals, and if animals and pets are present feces and urine. All of these are considered a biohazard.
