Almost everyone needs junk removal services at some point, especially those who have a home they’ve lived in for years. And almost every residential junk removal task can be handled quickly and efficiently by the team at Junk King Peninsula.
But, occasionally, there are less-than-typical junk removal jobs, such as hoarder cleanouts, for example.
Hoarder Cleanouts: When “Saving Things” Gets to be a Bit Too Much
If you live in the Peninsula area in someplace like La Honda, Menlo Park, San Bruno, Redwood City or even Palo Alto, there are residents that have too much “stuff.”
In fact, many of us could probably look around at our closets, under our beds, up in the attic, and – especially here – in the garage and realize we probably need to get rid of some things. And if that’s you, you’re certainly not alone.
The fact is that almost 50 percent of Americans with garages can’t park a car in them. That’s because their garages are full of things. In fact, for a majority of people in the country – and in the Peninsula region – our home’s garage is our “attached storage unit.”
And did we mention our rented storage units?
Well, another interesting or distressing fact, depending on your perspective, is how many of us rent storage units for all the stuff we own that can’t fit in our homes!
How many? Well, according to the website Sparefoot.com,
- Number of storage facilities 49,000+
- Total rentable self-storage space 1.9 billion square feet
- Self-storage space per person 5.9 square feet
- Households renting a storage unit 10.6 percent
However, the good news is that this is the “new normal” for most people living in the United States. Simply put, getting things and having things is a big part of what most of us do. And it is rarely a much bigger problem than not having enough space, or simply needing to get rid of some things we no longer want or need.
That is, except for those unfortunate folks who need more than some residential junk removal now and again. For some, their accumulation of things becomes hoarding. And these situations require something more extensive, namely, a hoarder cleanout.
Hoarding is More Than “Having Too Much Stuff”
Hoarding is a real and serious condition and is much more than the stuff of tabloid magazines.
Known as Hoarding Disorder, it is a persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions because of a perceived need to save them, according to the Mayo Clinic. And the American Psychiatric Association (APA) describes hoarding behavior,
“People with hoarding disorder excessively save items that others may view as worthless. They have persistent difficulty getting rid of or parting with possessions, leading to clutter that disrupts their ability to use their living or work spaces.”
While some may dismiss the disorder as merely unusual but not harmless, it can actually lead to several other issues. The APA goes on to explain,
“Potential consequences of serious hoarding include health and safety concerns, such as fire hazards, tripping hazards and health code violations.”
Hoarding disorder is such a real and pressing issue in the Bay Area that a task force was formed and a report was released in 2009 detailing the impact on residents and the community.
What’s needed in these situations is a bit more than some junk removal – a larger-scale cleanout is required.
If you are a friend, relative, or landlord that is looking for help in clearing out overwhelming clutter and junk accumulated in a house or apartment in the Peninsula area, you can simply call Junk King Peninsula to schedule a visit from our professional team of trash removal experts who will get rid of it all for you.
