Hoarding is a disorder that can have dangerous consequences for those affected as the symptoms will gradually become worse and lead to unsafe living conditions. As the individual begins collecting items, he or she will become incapable of disposing of anything and the hoard of items will continue to grow, blocking access to parts of the home and harboring mold and other bacteria. ServiceMaster by T.A. Russell provides hoarding cleaning services to help individuals who struggle with hoarding in Glendale, CA clean out their homes and restore sanitary living conditions.

As the symptoms of hoarding progress, the individual may collect paper products, food containers, newspapers, trash, and in some extreme cases even animals. A large hoard of collected items is dangerous not only because it blocks off areas of the home, but also because it can allow mold, mildew, and other harmful bacteria to grow which can have negative health effects.
