Hoarding is a somewhat misunderstood disorder that can lead to dangerous conditions for the affected individual and their families. Classified as a mental disorder, hoarding is rooted in anxiety which is what prevents those affected from being able to throw anything in their home away. Eventually the hoard of items grows large enough to cut off parts of the home which increases the risk of injury and makes escape during a disaster much more difficult. Individuals who struggle with hoarding must understand that they are creating dangerous living conditions so they can see the importance of having their home cleaned.
