Savage Home Hoarder Disorder Jeopardizes Health & Safety
Hoarding is a seriously devastating disease and can severely affect the home, even to the point of ultimately having it condemned.
Not to be mistaken for collectors, hoarders have an uncontrollable urge to save clutter, some of which has no value.
Collectors are very proud and have a sense of pride about their collection, whereas hoarders usually feel ashamed and want to hide their stuff from judgmental folk.
They usually compile things that are viewed as disgusting waste by most. Things like plastic bags, cardboard boxes, random pictures, empty containers, papers, newspapers, magazines and so forth.
Those affected by the hoarder disorder often have difficulty throwing things away, maybe thinking it may be useful in the future, or has a memory attached to it, or because it’s just a good idea to keep it.
Hoarder disorder may appear on its own. Many though, are diagnosed with other traumatizing problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, ADHD and depression.
Because of blocked access to most maintenance areas in the home, many hoarder’s home cleanliness, maintenance and updating on the inside and out are nonexistent.
Plus, many often have financial problems on top of all that.
If you know a hoarder whose living conditions have become a health hazard and are wanting to sell.
Maybe it’s filled with garbage.
Maybe it’s filthy.
Maybe it is in horrifying condition.
Maybe the roof leaks.
