Hoarding has gotten more attention in the last several years as we have gained an overall better understanding of the disorder and why it results in certain behaviors. Issues of anxiety are often at the root of hoarding which explains why those affected develop an inability to part with any objects that they have collected in their homes. This causes random objects such as food containers, newspapers, appliances, and many others to accumulate within the home which can lead to restricted access and the appearance of mold, bacteria, and other harmful substances.
