Hoarder Rescued Under Piles of Clutter in Home

Signs and Symptoms of HoardingAn elderly hoarder in British Columbia had to be rescued by firefighters in his own home after being trapped under a ceiling-high amount of objects. Rescuers had to chop down the front door before cutting their way through all the clutter that filled up the home. Apparently the man had been pinned under the pile for three days.
Police enlisted the help of the local fire department to help search for the man after a friend reported not seeing his neighbor. Firefighters had to dig through all the clutter before finding the elder man severely dehydrated. There was also no heat or electricity in the house.
“Had it been another day or two, with our cold temperatures, the outcome may have not been as good as it was. It was probably very rewarding for these firefighters.”
The man, in his 70s, is recovering in hospital and being treated for possible circulation problems in both legs.

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!
