Levels of Hoarding Guide

Address Our Mess, an industry leader in the hoarding and clutter cleaning industry, has developed a revolutionary web series that offers hoarders and helpers alike an inside look at the debilitation condition.

Mount Laurel, New Jersey (PRWEB) December 18, 2013

The hoarding condition is estimated to affect upwards of sixteen million citizens in the United States on an everyday basis. Determining how severe the condition has manifested into can help hoarders and their helpers find a successful course of action for treatment. Address Our Mess, an industry leader in the hoarding and clutter cleaning industry, has developed a revolutionary video series that offers hoarders and helpers alike an inside look at the debilitation condition.

The latest episode in the series, “Levels of Hoarding,” delves into four main categories of the condition:

  •     Mild
  •     Serious
  •     Extreme
  •     Life-Threatening

Each level of the condition is progressively worse than the others. Symptoms range from simple mounds and piles of clutter to broken plumbing to disease-infested biohazards. A variety of allergens and pathogens can cultivate in a severely hoarded home, especially in Animal Hoarding cases, while the building’s structure itself can suffer from damages due to animal and rodent infestations and neglect. While types of mild hoarding may be easier to treat than others, neglecting treatment will allow the condition to degrade into extreme and even life-threatening hoarding.

Legal and financial implications can arise due to extreme cases of hoarding. While legal consequences vary depending on hoarding locations, fines and citations can be extremely costly for hoarders and their families. Deep cleaning and sanitization is a worthwhile investment to make to ensure the hoarder and his or her family can begin the road to recovery in a safer, healthier environment.

Privacy and discretion is also considered by the hoarding specialist when services are rendered. The case manager will work closely with the home dweller in order to devise a scenario suitable to explain the use of dumpster, trucks, and personal protective gear.
