Hoarding isn’t just an extensive collection of something. It’s a psychological condition that worsens over time. It can get to the point where the hoarder’s health is at risk. Hoarders collect a variety of items, from newspapers to trash to animals, any of which can harbor bacteria or disease. Access to certain areas of the home can become blocked if the hoarding becomes extensive; everyone has seen the news stories about someone who was killed because a stack of magazines or newspapers fell.
