When it comes to obsessive hoarding it can become a serious health hazard. The crew of TLC’s “Hoarding: Buried Alive” show paid a visit to a Houston resident to document their out of control hoarding. What they uncovered in all the mounds of junk was the deadly rodent-borne Hantavirus. The result is that this home was placed on immediate quarantine and the occupant and crew were all treated for the virus.
Beyond this single instance there have been 35 cases of Hantavirus reported across Texas this year alone. In the case of the hoarding episode, the neighbors had actually organized a group of 30 people to get involved with the cleanup effort. They were helping out one of their own in need but had no idea it had gotten this out of hand. The home can be salvaged but everything has got to go including the furniture, carpets and drapes.
This certainly puts your own junk piles in perspective, doesn’t it? Hopefully, you haven’t reached the critical mass stage of a full-blown hoarder but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a tendency to hold onto useless objects. We all do. It’s human nature.
