Four-part Diagnosis of Hoarding Disorder

According to experts, hoarding disorder is a mental condition that has a four-part diagnosis: excessive acquisition of items, difficulty in discarding possessions, cluttered living spaces and distress caused by such condition.

The condition is entirely different from collecting as the former involves unorganized piles of clutter, while the latter involves displaying of new possessions that don’t impeded active living areas. Researchers also found that the brain functions differently in the frontal lobes of a person with hoarding disorder. People who suffer from this condition often have other diagnoses including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and attention deficit hyperactivity.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
