Hoarding & How To Prevent It 

March 28, 2023 by L. Belle


“Hoarding is a condition that affects many individuals, leading to a buildup of clutter and junk in their homes.”

  It can cause several negative consequences, including safety concerns, infestations, and reduced comfort.  In this blog post, we’ll explore the effects of hoarding, as well as provide tips on how to avoid it and how Belle’s Hauling & Moving, LLC can help bring comfort back to your home.  


What Is Hoarding?

Hoarding is the act of holding onto items with a tight grip, often leading to the accumulation of clutter in your home.  Many people with hoarding tendencies find it difficult to discard items they no longer need, resulting in excessive accumulation of furniture, boxes and junk.  Hoarding can affect anyone, regardless of their age or gender, and can cause significant stress to both the individual and their family.

Consequences Of Hoarding

Hoarding can have several negative consequences, including safety concerns, infestations and reduced comfort in your home.  Accumulated junk can lead to infestations from rodents and insects, posing health risks to your family.  Additionally, clutter in your home can cause home safety concerns, including the risk of fire.  It can also reduce the amount of living space you have, making it difficult for your family to move about safely.

Bring Back Comfort To Your Home By Reducing Clutter

When your home is clutter-free, you can experience a sense of peace and well-being.  By reducing clutter in your home, you can improve the air quality and reduce allergic reactions caused by mites produced by hoarded items.  Your family can move about freely without the fear of tripping hazards or other safety concerns.  Overall, your mental well-being can improve when your home is in order.  Remember, “Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness”.


Tips For Avoiding Hoarding

One effective way to avoid hoarding is by periodically evaluating the contents of your storage areas.  Determine if the items you’re storing are absolutely necessary, and get rid of anything you haven’t used in the past few years.  Spring cleaning can be a great way to declutter and organize your home. You can donate unwanted items to friends, family members, or local donation centers, such as Goodwill or Habitat for Humanity.  Optionally, you may  also sell their unwanted goods on Craigslist, or Facebook Marketplace for extra cash.
