HOUSE CLUTTER & HOARDING
What is Clutter? The term “clutter” usually refers to when a person has a collection of belongings lying around their household in no particular order. A lot of people tend to equate clutter with hoarding. While clutter is related to hoarding, it is not nearly as extreme and it is easier to remedy.
WHAT IS HOARDING
Hoarding is actually recognized as a symptom of a mental disorder. Hoarders will collect and keep things compulsively, and these collections eventually overwhelm their household. The reasons people develop into hoarders can include:
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
WHEN SHOULD I HIRE A PROFESSIONAL?
Here is where you’ll find another difference between clutter and hoarding. A person who is trying to deal with household clutter is usually more inclined to ask for help organizing their household. They seem to recognize that their disorganization has gotten to be too big of a task for them to manage on their own, and need some help putting it all in order.
A person who is dealing with a hoarding problem isn’t likely to be the one to ask for help. More often than not, they have been put under pressure to make changes by their family, friends, landlord…even their community. In rare cases, a hoarder may realize that getting rid of their own collection may be an important part of their healing and be ready to do it, but this is not the norm.
In either case, fixing the problem is a sensitive issue that requires a combination of compassion and efficiency, since the people helping may be tiptoeing around a deeper problem.
