Excessive clutter and hoarding has been in the spotlight in news programs and cable shows for years, sometimes shinning an unkind light on this disorder. Recent studies reported that this disorder affects up to 19 million Americans. We recognize that this is not only more common then we are lead to believe, but we are also empathetic to the process. Whether garbage, paper, household items, clothing, human waste, animal waste, or a combination of several; hoarding is unhealthy and unsafe. Its consequences include fire, falls, and illness.

What is hoarding?
Hoarding is defined as accumulating and declining to dispense items to the point of functionally impairing the purpose of a room. Sometimes these items may appear to be worthless, hazardous, or unsanitary, while other items may be less obviously not of use. When these belongings grow, rooms in the home become significantly untidy and can no longer be used for its intended purpose. For example, a kitchen may not be used to eat in or prepare meals, or perhaps, a bedroom can’t be slept in on account of access belongings on the bed. Rooms may only have dangerous cramped pathways between piles of objects, and in some cases, water or other utilities may be suspended due to workers being unable to gain access for repairs. Animal waste can be present in unorganized rooms causing distressing smells and odors and causing health risks. Hoarding can also be dangerous if it puts the individual or others at risk from fire, collapses, and poor sanitation leading to health concerns.
