A significant amount of people in the United States are affected by hoarding whether they are hoarders themselves or family members of a hoarder, and the living conditions created by hoarding behaviors can put those affected at serious risk. Hoarding is a mental disorder that is a symptom of anxiety and it is the struggle with anxiety that causes those affected to collect anything from trash, food containers, and newspapers to animals in their homes. As the hoard of items continues to grow larger, it will create hazardous living conditions by restricting access within the home, greatly increasing the risk of a fire, and allowing mold and bacteria to grow which will lead to negative health reactions.
