Hoarding

About Hoarding

There’s a situation many of us face from time to time or, for some people, more significantly, which is an unwillingness to let go of possessions even if they are not worth any money, of no use, broken, or taking up valuable space in our home, garage, attic or basement. For a minority of people, this “hoarding” can become a much more serious issue.

Hoarding is a medically recognised disorder where an individual collects and “saves” an excessive number of items, often things that most of us would consider junk, like old newspapers and magazines, broken electrical equipment, piles and piles of old clothes and even, in extreme cases, food and biohazardous bodily waste which then constitutes a real health hazard.

This can affect their quality of life and cause potential danger due to the amount of clutter interfering with everyday living. Most hoarders (and, indeed, their families) hesitate to seek out help as they feel embarrassed or ashamed to talk about their illness. So, it is important to deal with it sensitively and understand that hoarding is the problem, not the person.

Acorn Environment Services are here to help and have successfully cleared hundreds of domestic, social and sheltered properties. Therefore, we can handle your issue in the best possible way.
