Difficulty letting go of items, losing important items, and feeling overwhelmed by possessions are all signs of hoarding. Hoarding usually occurs when a person has difficulty parting with possessions and clutter starts to pile up. Hoarding in Michigan, in particular, has become a widespread concern in recent years.
Houses all over Michigan have clutter, but once physical objects start to interfere with someone’s well-being, it’s officially a hoarding situation. Living in a hoarded house can make daily tasks like cooking, cleaning, and personal hygiene maintenance extremely difficult. It can also lead to an increased risk of fires and impaired access for emergency service workers.
In the most serious situations, Michigan health officials can even have hoarders evicted. This often leaves people with nowhere to live and potentially losing their belongings. The best solution is to cleanup hoarding situations before they can progress to this point.
Beginning cleanup efforts in a hoarded house alone can be extremely overwhelming and frustrating. It’s important you have ample support during this process. You may be able to find it through family and friends, task forces, or through hiring a specialty cleaning service.
