Hoarding is Unhealthy – We Can Help
We all like to have a few knickknacks in our house, but when things get out of control, it becomes unhealthy. A home that is absolutely cluttered with random objects, trash, debris, and generic junk is a telltale sign that someone living there is a hoarder. Obsessive hoarding not only presents a hazardous living situation, but also causes intense stress and discomfort for the hoarder and others close to them. The Junkluggers of Collier & Lee County is here to help.
Actions and behaviors that are indicative of hoarding:
- Compulsively collecting possessions without purpose
- Buying new things every day
- Picking up “free” discarded objects off the street to bring home
- Refusing to discard any possession, even if it is an empty product box
- Inability to safely organize collections and possessions

Clearing Out Hoarding Situations
Our team at The Junkluggers of Collier & Lee County knows that hoarders are often highly sensitive about their obsessive-compulsive collection behaviors. We take extra care to approach the situation with respect, care, and an understanding approach to make the process of removing the excess junk stress-free.
Hoarding behaviors originate from common reasons why people keep items:
- Items are kept because they have sentimental value tied to an important person or event.
- Items are kept for utility value due to the item’s possible usefulness.
- Items are kept for aesthetic value because it is beautiful, attractive, etc.
It is important to come to the realization that hoarding is characterized by an exaggeration of these three item values. The exaggeration of the value can make a hoarder feel almost as if an item is a charm, and something bad will happen if it is thrown away. Over time, the possessions become so numerous, it becomes impossible to organize them and clutter takes over the home. This is when something must be done to keep the living space safe.
