When items and belongings start taking over a home and causing impairment to the occupants, it is likely a hoarding situation. Hoarding occurs when the unwillingness to throw away items causes the living areas of a home to get filled up. It is estimated that as many as 800,000 residents in New York suffer with some form of this condition.
Hoarding can be dangerous both in the city and in the suburbs of New York. It can present a fire hazard, it can prevent maintenance workers from repairing basic necessities like heat and water, and it can impair the overall quality of life of everyone living in the home. Studies show that large amounts of clutter can even cause increased levels of stress and anxiety.
But safety hazards aren’t the only danger associated with hoarding. Hoarding occupants are also potentially at risk of losing their homes. The Public Health Department in New York can evict occupants for hoarding, and homes with moderate to severe hoarding conditions will not pass state inspection.
