Task Force Against Hoarding Created in Delaware

Task Force MeetingA lot of people became familiar with hoarding because of the TV shows that focused on people suffering from it. But hoarding is more than just accumulating junk. It’s a disorder that’s more than just a bit troubling, it cuts people off from living a regular life.

According to an article by Kelly Bothum for usatoday.com, β€œIt’s about people paralyzed by the thought of getting rid of personal belongings, no matter how much – or little – they are worth. It’s about the social, physical and emotional isolation their hoarding behaviors cause. It’s about safety, not just for the hoarder but for those who live near them as well.”

In Delaware, where there is an alarming number of hoarders, a specially formed task force has been created to handle this issue. The state has taken matters into its own hands. One way they tackled the problem was by setting up a daylong symposium on hoarding.

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!
