You can’t help but stumble over the hallmarks of a hoarder. Stacks of things throughout the house. Junk everywhere. The floors completely covered. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that in 2009 the U.S. had more than two million hoarders. The prime time hit TV show “Hoarders” spotlights the problem, showing hoarders’ inability to part with personal belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis. National awareness has caused more and more hiding hoarders to come out of their messy homes and search for help. In fact, the show uses mobile storage units as one of their techniques to help hoarders overcome their problem. So if you are a hoarder or are struggling to live with one, what on earth do you do to combat this disease?
