Hoarding: The Basic Information
Hoarding Disorder results when people are unable to discard unneeded objects and possessions and end up living in an unpleasant and dangerous clutter. People can also hoard animals. Hoarders feel an emotional attachment or responsibility toward the items they hoard and find it very difficult to sort, organize and make decisions about the items that fill their living space. Frequently they intend to do something with hoarded items and may churn their way through the clutter but are never able to to successfully clear the mess. Pressure from family and friends rarely results in improvement and many hoarders go to therapy only because they are being forced to seek treatment. Many families give up hope for a member who hoards because they feel thwarted in their efforts to help, especially after they see a hoarder resume hoarding after a forced “clean out.” Cleaning out the garbage, debris and clutter is the first necessary step. The living environment created by hoarding is extremely unhealthy and can result in a variety of physical health problems.
Hoarding disorder affects emotions, thoughts and behavior. Signs and symptoms may include:
People with hoarding disorder typically save items because:
Proper treatment can help families and hoarders learn to overcome the devastating effects of hoarding. Hoarders relapse after forced clean outs unless they are taught new ways to think about objects and how to use living space appropriately. Treatments using motivational interviewing, with individual and group therapy will help hoarders learn to sort, categorize and organize their belongings as they gradually reclaim their living space and learn to live comfortably without clutter. There are many centers around northern Illinois that can assist you with and provide treatment.
Due to the fact that almost everything inside a "Hoarder" home is ruined by either odors, pests (insects & other vermin) or filth, we do NOT advise trying to save anything in the house. In most cases, we will NOT donate any items due to to the conditions involved in hoarding. We will do our best to keep an eye out for items that may be of importance such as legal documents, family photos & heirlooms, etc. but we cannot and will not sort through everything piece by piece. You will be required to sign a contract in advance releasing us from any/all responsibility for the loss of any items removed during service. It is your responsibility to remove any valuable items BEFORE the start of your service. "Picking" through the home and items will not be allowed once the work has begun as you will only be in the way.
Rates begin at 50% more than the general household rate and go up from there depending on conditions. On smaller jobs, we can usually give you a flat rate for cleanout and removal. On larger jobs, we will only be able to quote you a "per load" rate as it is impossible to estimate the exact volume of items to be removed and disposed of. We will provide you with a rough estimate of the number of loads required, but the actual final total cost will be solely based on the amount (total volume) of items removed. Rates can vary greatly between hoarder jobs due to location, ease of removal, sanitary conditions, known and unknown pest factors, access issues, parking and other factors.
Due to the extremes often required for hoarder cleanups, we cannot post rates or give estimates by phone. We will gladly come to your location and provide you with a free estimate for your hoarder cleanup.
Note: Depending on the severity and circumstances, we will either quote you an all inclusive flat fee, or a "by the load" rate.

If items are accepted at a charitable organization we will gladly mail the donation ticket directly to you.
