Into the Cave: Looking Inside the House of a Hoarder

Americans are victims of consumerism, as one study has pointed out. We purchase things out of a perceived need for it in the future, store it, forget about it and then we buy new stuff. A survey conducted for the study has shown that an average home would have thousands of items in plain sight and not all of it are really useful.

This kind of behavior can only lead to hoarding, which is the desire to accumulate things at an alarming rate. If you have any relative who has the disorder then you have probably seen first-hand how serious this disorder can be. They are going to store things in their place to a point where there is no longer any room to live in it in a convenient way.

Experts say that hoarding usually starts when a person reaches his 50s, but it can trace its roots as far back as when a person is in his teens. The actual disorder can actually be triggered to become worse by some traumatic experience on the part of the person.

The biggest problem is that hoarders fail to recognize anything wrong with their behavior and would really not change anything until something really bad happens. Nick Vadala of the Philly Post has written an insightful article on this.

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!
