What Is Hoarding Disorder?

Hoarding disorder occurs when a person becomes fearful of throwing anything away, which leads to the accumulation of many items in their living space. These items don’t always have to be valuable. Hoarding disorder can lead to stress, financial difficulties, legal problems, and health issues if not dealt with, and these issues can affect anyone who comes into contact with the hoarder. We at Texas Disaster Restoration recommend calling in the professionals when it comes to hoarding cleanup, as there are serious risks involved.

There are considered to be 5 different levels of hoarding disorder. They are the following:

1. Minimal Hoarding - The living space is still fairly clutter-free, and the person doesn’t have to go through a maze of things when walking through it. There are no safety or sanitary concerns at this point, and it may not even be evident that a hoarding disorder exists.

2. Mild Hoarding - At this stage, there will be more clutter and disorganization throughout the living quarters. There may be parts of the home that become difficult to reach, but maneuvering through it is still relatively easy. Noticeable odors, uncleanliness, and dust may be present, as well as an excessive number of pets. Some safety risks are now present too.

3. Moderate Hoarding - There are now multiple areas or rooms blocked by clutter. Certain household appliances may not be able to be used any longer, and structural damage may be noticeable. There may now also be mold and odors present. Sanitary concerns have now grown.

4. Severe Hoarding - The clutter is now becoming serious, with most parts of the living space rendered inaccessible. There may now be decomposing food, animal feces, and other safety hazards. The utilities may have been cut off at this point, and the home could be in rough physical shape as a result. Health and safety concerns will require professional intervention.

5. Extreme Hoarding - This is the most severe level of the disorder. At this stage, the living space isn’t livable any longer. There are many biohazards present, including possibly human waste and decaying animals. The physical structure has also deteriorated to the point where the risk of fire, injury, or disease is very high. Prompt professional help will be required.

Animal Hoarding Cleanup

When animals are involved in a hoarding situation, there may be biohazards present that must be dealt with in a specific way.

Texas Disaster Restoration responds to the jobsite within an hour of your call, ready to get to work.

Clutter Cleanup

When your things begin to take over your home, it can quickly lead to a feeling of helplessness. Cleaning and organizing things can seem almost impossible, especially if you’re planning to go at it alone. The team at Texas Disaster Restoration can help you, whether you’re looking for a partner in the cleaning project or someone to take it off your hands completely. We can clean up residential properties, commercial properties, and outdoor spaces.

It doesn’t matter if you’re cleaning up your house to move or just want to get things organized. If something has been sitting in the same place for a long period, it’s prone to become a health risk.

Our skilled, experienced crew knows just how to clean and sanitize following any situation.

We’ll also be sure to try and salvage any valuable items that may be in the pile of clutter. And no matter the situation, we’ll always treat you and your property with the respect and dignity you both deserve. We know you didn’t plan to be in this jam.

Once everything is cleaned up, we’ll be sure to sanitize and deodorize the area, so that it’s ready for safe habitation once again.
