Halloween is almost here, and for many people, that spells fun. It’s a time to dress in costumes, eat candy, and spend as many moments as you can with friends and family. Of course, if someone you know deals with a hoarding situation, the holidays aren’t so fun. Holiday pastimes like gathering for Halloween parties, Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas presents—these simply can’t be done in the home of someone who hoards. If you know someone who hoards, consider speaking to them about hoarding cleanup and whatever other treatment suits them best.
Holding special events in a cluttered home can be very difficult, if not impossible. Whether this person collects old newspapers or shopping bags, figurines or food, this causes space and safety problems. They may not be able to move comfortably from room to room. Furniture might be covered in these items. The kitchen may not have working plumbing because it’s hard for someone to come inside and work on it. A professional hoarding cleanup can help make a home ready for “living” again and take away some of the stress. People can safely walk around freely or sit on something in any room in the house without problems.
If there’s a lot of clutter around a home, that could also make bug or rodent infestations more likely. No one can come over for a holiday dinner. It’s not a great idea to have trick-or-treater visitors. A hoarding cleanup—once the person who hoards is ready for it—could make all the difference for these classic holiday activities.
