People who are known as having a problem with hoarding tend to be rather older than other OCD sufferers though most specify that their hoarding behaviour started when they were at a young age. Subsequently the average age of onset for these symptoms is unknown.

The obsessional fear related with hoarding is the importance of something that might be lost by departure such as an out-of-date newspaper. The most commonly saved items include newspapers, magazines, clothing, bags, mail and books they believe may be needed in the future. Obsessive hoarders don’t just save stuff, but they regularly buy or obtain new stuff.

Hoarding is always accompanied by excessive acquisition of possessions. This may consist of both compulsive buying as well as the compulsive acquisition of free stuff. For instance, a sufferer may visit the local newsagents daily to get hold of going spare magazines or newspapers. Often, sufferers are unable to abstain from buying bargains, even though they have no use for them. Other forms of compulsive acquisition include picking up handouts, leaflets or other free offerings, and even picking through other people’s rubbish.

Excellent and reliable service

A huge thank you to the specialists at the cluttered house clearance company for clearing my extremely cluttered house. I have been a hoarder for most of my adult life and came to a realization that I needed to have a fresh start. I hired the cluttered house clearance company to declutter and clear my home of most of my belongings, leaving only my furniture in place. The team were reliable, friendly and hard working throughout. A huge thanks, Alice.
