In the U.S. alone, over five percent of the citizens are affected with a hoarding disorder. Hoarding can vary from a home that’s cluttered and messy to a house that’s completely uninhabitable. Hoarding is a complicated disorder to deal with, especially if it’s a family member that you love and care for in Centennial, CO. How can you distinguish the home that’s just cluttered and untidy from one that needs intervention from mental health specialists and requires professional hoarding cleanup services? Here’s what to look for:
- Collections that don’t stop growing and are never complete, even with items that have no use
- Social isolation
- Unsafe living conditions
- Rooms that can’t be entered because they’re so full of items or trash
- Hallways that are impassible
- Too many animals in the home
- Promises and procrastination on cleaning up
- Appliances that no longer work
- Faulty wiring or electric service that doesn’t work
- Pests or rodents in the home
