While most of us like to hang on to certain things for sentimental reasons (for example, baby clothes, kids craft projects and old furniture we think we might need), others have such a compulsion to collect things that it negatively impacts their life. Hoarding habits eventually lead to the accumulation of large amounts of useless items that are only suitable for landfill. This is where Clean Up Gold Coast and our hoarding rubbish removal service can help.
What Is Hoarding Disorder?
Hoarding is more common that you might think. Fortunately, there is a growing awareness of the condition and help for hoarders is readily available. Hoarding can be defined as:
Hoarding becomes a disorder when someone collects too many things and has difficulty letting go or throwing out things that are out of date or no longer functioning. Often, people who hoard have difficulty moving around their home because of the number of things they have accumulated. The person may even no longer be able to maintain or clean their home.
You may not know someone has a hoarding problem until complications arise. The most common include:
- Squalid living conditions – untouched areas of junk are unsightly and attract rats, cockroaches and insects.
- Financial hardship – hoarders often buy more than they need.
- Relationship Problems – hoarding behaviours may impair the sufferer’s ability to function socially or maintain a job.
