Frequently Asked Questions

When does hoarding become a safety issue?

Hoarding can become a safety issue when the accumulation of clutter and possessions creates hazardous conditions in the home such as tripping hazards, fire hazards, and health hazards. If the hoarding has reached a level where it blocks exits, creates narrow pathways, or blocks access to essential facilities such as the kitchen, bathroom, or sleeping area, it is considered a safety issue. The hoarding may also attract pests and rodents, leading to infestations and unsanitary conditions. When hoarding interferes with the daily functioning of the home and poses a risk to the well-being of the individuals living there, it is considered a safety issue and may require professional intervention.
