The Complexities of Hoarding
Hoarding situations are so often extreme because those affected suffer from a disorder that causes extreme fear and anxiety when they attempt to throw things away. This condition also makes it hard for the affected individuals to ask for help. Family and friends should be respectful when they confront hoarders for the best chance of getting them to change their habits.
Hoarding is dangerous for people living or visiting in the affected property for the following reasons:
