Hoarding behavior in a family has brought drama and a sense of shame to many people in Denver, CO.

While it can still be difficult to understand this disorder, loved ones of hoarders now understand that there is help out there. ServiceMaster DSI provides professional, compassionate, and discreet hoarding cleanup.
Here are some signs of hoarding:
Hoarders Are Often Socially Isolated
It’s not unusual for hoarders to recuse themselves from society and eventually stop allowing human interaction. The effort of socializing may be very difficult for them, and they may feel very judged by their living conditions. If the idea of cleanup is broached with them, they may be very agitated or defensive, which is difficult to deal with.
Hoarders Feel Distress About Parting With Anything
One of the most difficult parts of the disease is that hoarders seem to find everything impossible to part with. Their homes soon become overrun with refuse, expired food, old mail and magazines, broken household items, and in the case of people who collect animals, feces and biohazards. Their desire to collect is a way to make the chaotic world make sense to them.
Dangers of Hoarding
A hoarder’s home is often a death trap. Due to the amount of debris, if a fire brakes out it can escalate rapidly and can be very dangerous for the occupant and the firefighters. It can contain biohazards and pathogens that can put the health of anyone nearby at risk.
