Is Hoarding A Problem?

A picture of a room full of clutter. Is Hoarding A Problem?


It was a term which began with folks known to have their savings by them, probably hidden inside their flock-beds; in the contemporary day, hoarding in a living or work space is a pattern characterized by excessive acquisition of and/or an inability or unwillingness to discard large quantities of objects that cover the living areas of the home, or an office area. 

You may have made a commitment to clear out and clean out. 

It takes time.

Some conditions that may be present in a hoarding situation:

  • Beds that cannot be slept in;
  • Kitchens that cannot be used for food preparation;
  • Tables, chairs, or sofas that cannot be used for dining or sitting;
  • Unsanitary bathrooms; Tubs, showers, and sinks filled with items and can no longer be used for washing or bathing;
  • Their clutter and mess is at a point where it can cause illness, distress, and impairment. 

Also, if pets are present, they may have caused significant damage to floors and carpeting because they have been having accidents inside. 

We do rebuild--We are also capable of laying flooring, carpeting and much, much more.  We are here to help, and estimates are complimentary.
