Hoarding impacts millions of lives in the U.S. from those who are affected to their family members who live in the same house. Hoarding is classified as a mental disorder with a high level of anxiety that makes it difficult for the affected individual to part with anything they have collected in their home. This leads to an excessive buildup of all types of objects such as newspapers, random knick-knacks, appliances, and even animals that clutter the home and increase the risk of injuries and fires. As the collection of items grows, it is more likely to harbor mold, bacteria, and other harmful substances that can have serious health effects. Cleaning a hoarder’s home is a delicate situation because those that hoard tend to be attached to the objects that they keep.
