Address Our Mess Releases Five Early Warning Signs of Hoarding

July 18, 2013

Continuing their visual guide series on how to help a hoarder, industry experts Address Our Mess have released yet another ground breaking how-to guide for those struggling with the hoarding condition. The Five Early Warning Signs of Hoarding is packed with important information for hoarders and their helpers alike to identify key clues that the debilitating condition has taken over.

Mount Laurel, NJ (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

Hoarding has become a challenge seemingly impossible to overcome for those living with the condition as well as the family members and friends trying so desperately to help their loved ones. One of the main reasons why helping a hoarder is so difficult is because most people affected by the condition are completely unaware that an issue is occurring.

With popular television series like A&E’s Hoarders exposing a select few in the hoarding community, real life folks who do not yearn for the bright lights of reality television are disguising their living conditions more and more every day.

Living in a hoarded home creates many dangers for people exposed to the massive amounts of clutter and biohazards. Disease-ridden rodents and pests are attracted by mounds of garbage and rubbish that are scattered about kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms. Structural damages lay hidden beneath piles of hoarded papers and boxes, disguising potential fire hazards and possibilities of a property’s collapse.

Address Our Mess, a leading expert in the hoarding cleaning service industry, has developed a unique visual guide series designed specifically for helping hoarders. Their latest publication, The Five Early Warning Signs of Hoarding, was created to help hoarding situations come to light in the most nurturing way possible.

The highly engaging visual guide offers valuable tips and useful insight like:

  •     If a friend or loved one starts to display signs of social isolation, there may be more to their distance than meets the eye.
  •     Hoarders have a natural tendency to keep visitors away at all costs. Feelings of shame and regret arise when visitors start knocking.
  •     Observing chronic indecisive behavior in a close relative, co-worker, or friend can be a window into a severe troubled home life.
  •     Family and friends of hoarders who are invited into a hoarder’s home may feel overwhelmed, but should consider themselves lucky that their loved one trusts them.
  •     Never overlook a blatant cry for help. Hoarding conditions range from very minor to extremely severe. If someone is asking for help, help is needed.

By using this brand new guide in conjunction with previously published tools like the Official Do's and Don’ts Guide for Hoarders and 3 Decluttering Tips, hoarders and their helpers can establish a bond of trust that is extremely vital to the success of the recovery process.
