Below are common signs of hoarding to look for to determine if one of your friends or loved ones is a hoarder:
1. The number one thing we hear from loved ones who hire us to help clean out their relative’s home is: Their family member wouldn’t let them in the home or always insisted on meeting them anywhere other than the home.
2. Collection of newspapers, magazines, toys, new items that are never opened, food or animals
3. Blocked doorways and windows, inability to comfortably navigate within rooms or from room to room
4. Rotting food, used food containers, trash, human or animal waste, mold, spider webs, insect or rodent infestation and general neglect of home.
