Hoarding: A Threat to the Entire Neighborhood

Paper peelings on a wallHoarding does not only cause discomfort and pose various risks to hoarders and the people they share their house with – they also cause a lot of inconvenience to their neighbors, from mere unpleasant smells to the threat of fire and other hazards. Such is the case of a certain neighborhood in Chilliwack, Canada.

A 90-year-old woman is living with her 54-year-old hoarder son. Their house is surrounded by garbage and untidy lawn and the inside is practically filled with piles of trash.

City council has already passed one resolution to order the property cleaned up on the outside and a second for the inside.

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!
