Hoarding is a Disorder, Not a Choice

Hoarding is a disorder, not a choice.  The actual condition is known as Compulsive Hoarding Disorder and it affects millions today.  The staff at AAA Scene Cleaners is trained and prepared to help with hoarding cleaning service.   We are non-judgmental, respectful, and here to assist you with your hoarding cleanup needs.  We do not rally like the title of calling someone a "hoarder" therefore we consider our services "Extreme Cleaning".  We are Dallas & Fort Worth's Extreme Cleaning Team.

According to national studies, hoarding affects over 1.5 million people in America and these numbers are increasing.  Not all hoarding cases are severe; some range from having difficulty discarding items to anxiety and even depression.  The true definition of a compulsive hoarder is someone who has difficulty discarding items that most people consider have little or no true value.  As the condition becomes more severe, the items become clutter and this clutter leads to an unsafe or unhealthy environment for people to reside. When these conditions become unsafe, call the friendly staff at 817-223-0016 for help and support.

Hoarding is a serious mental disorder.  When left untreated, it can overtake and even control one’s life and health.  Often these individuals are viewed as lazy, but these opinions are wrong and far from the truth.  Due to the way their brain functions, they are unable to make decisions that most consider routine or easy.  The hoarder wants to live a normal and productive life, but their condition prevents it. 

Studies are showing that hoarding is possibly heredity. Up to 65% of people who suffer from compulsive hoarding disorder can be linked to another close relative who has the same disorder.  Those who inherit these behaviors can begin to show symptoms as early as the teen years. One can also begin to experience hoarding disorder symptoms post-brain injury.

          There are many treatments options available to help the compulsive hoarder.  Treatment typically falls under counselling, medication, and home support.  Many hoarders experience great results from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, or CBT.  The professionals at AAA Scene Cleaners specialize in hoarding cleanup.  We are trained and certified to perform hoarding cleaning services and dealing with the emotional needs of our clients.  Our respectful and compassionate team will support you and your family throughout the entire hoarding cleanup process and encourage you to remain resilient throughout the intervention.   Our experiences have been once the process begins, we can make the transition easier than expected and relieve tension, anxiety, and stress.
