Hoarding disorder is "A persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions because of a perceived need to save them." A person with hoarding disorder experiences distress at the thought of getting rid of the items. Excessive accumulation of items, regardless of actual value, occurs. Personal belongings that accumulate inside a home might bring good memories, and be difficult to discard. However, there might come a time when these collections make daily living very difficult and could even pose a safety threat to a home's occupants. If you have concerns about your home's condition we'd love to help you get a fresh start to your life.
- Risk of fire:
- Most hoarded items are flammable, and with piles of fuel available, fire can spread in seconds. Additionally, the hoarded belongings may cause heavy toxic smoke. Now the home's occupants are in jeopardy, but have limited escape routes. When rescue crews arrive, they have limited access to the home, due to piles blocking doors and windows. Don't let hoarding kill you or someone you love.
- Pest Infestations:
- Abundance of food and habitat invites mice, rats, cockroaches, and other vermin. These critters chew and damage your home's structure. Their droppings and dead bodies can spread diseases such as E.coli, Salmonella, and Hantavirus.
- Poor Indoor Air Quality:
- Heavy dust, dander, mold, pollen, and rodent feces are a few of the serious odors and air impurities that hoarding may cause, jeopardizing your health.
- Trip/Fall Hazard:
- Stacks and piles of belongings in a house make walking difficult, and create a trip/fall hazard. Additionally, the stacks sometimes fall on people, quickly creating a dangerous trap.
- Structural Collapse:
- As more items are stored in your home, their weight compiles. Rodents chew building materials, and mold and water damage can develop, unnoticed. When combined with extreme weight of hoarded goods, whole floors and beams can buckle and collapse.
