The Biohazard Report June 2018
Hoarding in the Heart of the Home
Research by the American Psychological Association suggests that hoarding is a distinct disorder, often associated with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The need to accumulate items can be overwhelming to the individual with this compulsion, and even the thought of discarding their collections can provoke severe distress and anxiety. Bio-One understands the nature of the disorder and will work with family members, professional counselors and various related agencies to help those in need.
Often in hoarding situations we find basic utilities and household mechanics that are not functioning, creating truly dangerous environments for the occupants, law enforcement and other first responders. Our goal is to restore functionality and provide a safe environment for our clients without judgment.
