Hoarding is a complicated disorder that stems from deeper anxiety issues and the behaviors that result can have serious implications for those affected and their families. Because of the underlying anxiety, people who hoard have an inability to throw anything away, allowing their homes to fill up with a wide variety of items. As the hoard grows, the conditions in the home become more dangerous as the pile of items can block off areas and harbor hazardous materials such as mold and bacteria that can affect the health of those in the home.
