According to The American Psychiatric Association, hoarding affects between 2 to 6 percent of the population. Those who suffer from a hoarding disorder excessively save items that others may view as trivial and/or worthless. They have a persistent difficulty parting with or getting rid of possessions, which leads to an overwhelming amount of clutter that disrupts their ability to properly use, live, or work in the spaces they occupy.
It is important not to get excessive hoarding confused with collecting. Collectors look for specific items with certain details, such as stamps, coins, or model cars and displays or organizes them beautifully. Those who have a hoarding disorder often save seemingly random objects and don’t have a well-organized means of storing them. Common items such as old clothing, newspaper, or plastic containers are often saved and a person with hoarding disorder would consider these objects exceptionally difficult to part ways with. Many times, hoarders feel like these items have sentimental value, are valuable, or think they may have use in the future.
Hoarding disorder can lead to issues in personal relationships that extend into social and work activities. Serious cases of hoarding can lead to health and safety concerns, such as tripping hazards, fire hazards, and health code violations.
