The dangers of hoarding

From slips and falls to fires, mold, and mice, hoarding can be a very dangerous thing. Not only can hoarding destroy your home, it can also cause serious health issues. In this post I will explain how.

Imagine walking through your living room and having to step over items to get from one side to the other. What happens if you slip over these items and fall onto a pile of things? What about if you can’t get back up? Will you be able to get to a phone to dial 911 and if you do will they be able to get in to help you?

Here’s another potential issue: Fires! When the winter comes and your home gets cold the first thing you do is turn on your heat but what if your home is cluttered and there are too many things blocking your heaters? Did you know that’s a fire hazard? When your heaters are on and too many things are close to them there is always a risk that something could get stuck to the heater and cause a fire. If your home is on fire would you be able to get out in time?

Last but not least: Mold and mice! If your house has ever flooded, your roof leaked or a pipe burst you likely have mold. Mold when breathed in can affect your lungs. And what about mice? Well, mice breed like crazy so if you have one mouse in your home you can potentially get hundreds and in a hoarded home you may not even know they are there as they are making beds out of your shoeboxes and hiding out in piles of clothing and other housewares. And while they are living in your home they are using it as their bathroom so you are breathing in their urine and droppings!

The first step in fixing all of these potential hazards is to declutter your home. Not only will you be able to move about your home more easily but you will also have peace in knowing that should there ever be an emergency you will be able to get out safely. Plus once your home is clutter free you can then have any mold or mice issues addressed. Want to get started decluttering your home? Call me today at 203-721-0657 and let me help you make your space your happy place!

When is the right time to declutter your home?

Have you been wondering if your home is too cluttered? Have small piles of clothing and housewares become large piles that you feel are growing out of control? Has it become difficult to get around in your home? If you answered yes to any of these questions then it may be time to call a professional organizer.

When a home becomes cluttered and you have to climb over things to get from one room to another it can become unsafe. Picture climbing over a large pile of clothing and slipping, if you land wrong you could get hurt. You also run the risk of having insects and rodents moving in on you. Did you know that if you get one mouse in the house you could potentially get hundreds?

As a professional home organizer I help my clients declutter their homes to not only make them safe but to make them comfortable as well. It is my belief that a clutter free home is a happy home. So if you think your home is cluttered, now is the time to make that call and let me help you make your space a happy place.

Decluttering and organizing leads to peace and happiness!
