Hoarding Cleanup in Tampa
For the last decade, hoarding has been in the spotlight in news programs and cable shows. Recent studies estimate that about 1 in 4 people are hoarders of some kind. However, hoarding is unhealthy and unsafe. It can result in fire, falls, and illness. Some even go without heat or water because repairmen can’t get inside to fix the problem.
Although, for many hoarders the state of their homes is embarrassing. It makes it hard to allow anyone to enter–especially family members or friends. They can recognize the seriousness of it.

What is hoarding?
Hoarding is refusing to throw out anything that would be worthless to most people. It causes living spaces to become cluttered and unusable. For example, bathtubs serve as storage for dishes. Living rooms only have narrow pathways between piles of clutter. Beds become coated with food wrappers, books, and clothes. Refrigerators are completely filled with spoiled food. Animal waste is present under the clutter. Hoarding can also be dangerous. It increases the risk of fire, falling, poor sanitation, and other health concerns.
