They Don’t Want to Waste Anything
Some people hoard because they believe each and every item in their home is useful and should be used for something. They might think that if they throw something away, they’ll need it in the near future and regret what they did. Maybe they have a collection of extra hammers just in case their most-used hammer breaks. Maybe they save food well past its expiration date because they spent a lot of money on it, even if it’s rotten, smelly, and covered with mold. Maybe they’re saving gifts they want to eventually give relatives and friends in other states, even if keeping them might lead to the need for biohazard cleanup.
Many hoarders keep items that remind them of vacations, special events, or happier times in their lives. Some items might belong to deceased loved ones. A professional hoarding cleanup company can help you clean up a hoarder’s home and take away much of the stress. All you need to do is call us.
