Hoarding If you know someone who is a hoarder, you understand the anxiety they experience as well as the difficulty they have organizing their possessions. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America defines hoarding as the compulsive purchasing, acquiring, searching, and saving of items of little or no value. These items can include magazines and newspapers, paper and plastic bags, household supplies, food, clothing, and more. Hoarders are simply incapable of organizing and/or discarding their accumulation of possessions and, even though their behavior interferes with normal daily activities, retain everything on the belief that they will one day be useful, valuable, or needed. Once a hoarder (or family member of a hoarder) has made the decision to clean up their home or property, the cleanup and remediation should be handled by a company with the experience to perform the specialized care and treatment required. GET RESTORATION EXPERTS recognizes that cleaning out a hoarder’s home is not just another cleaning job.
