Re-branding Hoarding for Improved Understanding

Hoarding is a mental disorder, no person does it by choice — this is what Ceci Garrett, founder of Lightening the Load, aims to make people understand in her attempt to “re-brand” the behavior.

Many individuals who are afflicted with Hoarding Disorder are met with contempt by their very own neighbors, friends and sometimes even close relatives when the latter learn of their condition. Garrett writes that through conversation, education and research, people’s point of view on hoarding can be shifted to a more sympathetic sense.

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!
