Hoarding: How to Begin the Cleanup Process

Posted by Jackson Short on Wed, Feb 27, 2019

What many people may not know, is that hoarding is an incredibly touchy subject. Hoarding is a disorder that causes someone to add emotional/intrinsic value to objects of little to no need. Often the reason for this is that the individual believes the object may be of some use in the future, and does not want to get rid of the object for fear of needing it again later.

How Hoarding Affects Your Home

Posted by Jackson Short on Mon, Feb 18, 2019

Hoarding is a psychological disorder that causes people to collect items and attach a strong emotional significance to them, making them reluctant to remove or get rid of the item, even if the item provides no intrinsic value. This can start small, but can become a dangerous habit over time. The reluctance to get rid of something comes from a deeply embedded fear that the item might provide value or utility at some point in the future.

Why People Hoard

Posted by Jackson Short on Sun, Oct 14, 2018

Hoarding is defined as the act of amassing and hiding or storing away objects. As a mental disorder, it can cause a person to feel distressed when it comes to disposing of items. While many of us are aware of what hoarding is, not a lot of us know why people hoard, or what causes them to develop a tendency to hoard. Here at Clean Earth Restorations, our goal is to help hoarders on their road to recovery by taking over the cleaning and restoring of one's home. However, we also think it is important to help educate people on why someone might develop hoarding tendencies.
