Hoarding Cleanouts in Brooklyn

After completing many hoarding cleanouts in Brooklyn, we’ve noticed quite a few similarities between people with hoarding tendencies. While clutter is normal, excessive amounts of clutter that hinders your ability to easily use and move about your living space is both anxiety provoking and a fire hazard. Learn more about how hoarding begins and what you can do to get your life back.

Early Symptoms of Hoarding

Hoarding tends to afflict people who have trouble making decisions. For an indecisive person, it’s easier to keep everything than to risk throwing something away that you fear you might need in the future. It is also prevalent for those who have obsessive-compulsive disorder. Early symptoms of hoarding include:

• Extreme anxiety when attempting to part with possessions of any value
• Difficulty categorizing or finding places to store possessions
• Emotional difficulties such as divorce, health problems, marital issues and social isolation
