Hoarding and Distressed Properties
We tackle small to large jobs.
Hoarding is defined as the collection of items in excess of what is needed in a household , that interferes with your everyday living. It is estimated that nearly 6% of the U.S. population ( roughly 19 million) are affected by this disorder and the numbers are growing. Hoarding is not so much being sentimental of every little thing, it is more of the fear of the anxiety of letting these things go.The do not want to let go of these things for fear of” feeling the anxiety”. It is not as simple as just going in and throwing these things away as you can create more anxiety and stress. That’s why you need a team of compassionate people like 911 Knox Decon.
