Hoarder Percentage in Singapore Lower Than 4% of Adults

In the US, hoarding isn’t something that has just recently caught the eye of the public. In fact, citizens have long been aware of this disorder, even becoming a popular subject in awareness movements, social media and even reality shows. However, in the other nations, particularly in Asia, hoarding hasn’t been a serious issue — or possibly one that hasn’t been given much attention yet.

According to an article on the prevalence of hoarding in Singapore, “At 2 per cent of the adult population, the lifetime prevalence of hoarding here is lower than the 4 per cent reported in studies done elsewhere, the researchers noted. Compared with other common mental illnesses here, hoarding is less prevalent than major depressive disorder (5.8 per cent of the adult population) and obsessive compulsive disorder, known as OCD (3 per cent of the adult population).”

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!
