Help for Hoarders

Helping Hoarders in Richmond, VA

Are You or Is Someone You Know a Hoarder?

Most of us have some clutter in our homes, but for some people, this disorganization and accumulation of items can take over the house. Some people’s homes become so cluttered to the point where they are overwhelming to themselves or others. This can affect their family relationships, friendships, and daily stress levels.

Hoarding typically has three components:

  • Acquiring possessions compulsively
  • Constantly buying or collecting free things
  • Saving all these possessions and never discarding anything
  • Struggling to organize and maintain all the saved possessions

Going about Hoarding Situations

Don't stress on this. We can help! Our Luggers go through rigorous training and are uniquely experienced in dealing with this kind of situation. The Junkluggers of Richmond have years of experience helping clean out homes that could be classified as hoarding situations. Through these experiences, we have learned how to safely and sensitively use our expertise to help individuals and families step into a cleaner, more stress-free living situation.

People who hoard keep things for the same reason as anyone else:

  • For sentimental value – The hoarder has an emotional attachment to the items or saves them to remember an important life event
  • For utility value – The item is, or could be, useful
  • For aesthetic value – The item is considered to be attractive or beautiful

If you hoard, you probably have problems organizing and maintaining all your possessions. First of all, the sheer number of items can be overwhelming. A hoarder can have problems categorizing because he or she may struggle to see each item as unique. This often results in clutter and eventually causes stress and isolation.

Part of the problem with those struggling with hoarding problems is that they find it hard to make decisions about what to do with their possessions. You or your loved one may feel that something bad will happen if they discard an item or feel like a part of their identity will be lost. If he or she has a past experience of throwing something out and regretting it later, this is likely to increase their distress.
