    HOARDERS CLEANING

    WHAT IS FOOD HOARDING?

    An individual might hoard food for a number of reasons. It is quite normal for someone to keep more food than they might need around the house but there comes a time when it becomes an obsession and this is known as food hoarding. Many food hoarders feel shameful about the act of hoarding and this has prevented them from seeking help.

    One of the reasons that you might be hoarding food is that you feel you might not have enough to eat at a later point in time.  Or maybe you will not have the ingredients you will need for a cooking project later on. Scientific research has shown that food hoarding is much more prevalent among people with PTSD such as living through the Great Depression or having once had an eating disorder.

    FOOD HOARDING SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

    An obsession for storing food could be a coping mechanism as a result of trauma or a desire to not be wasteful. However, the urge to collect food for survival can extend far beyond what is healthy. Hoarding food, especially when expired, can expose the entire household to physical illness.

    Symptoms include: obsessively collecting and storing food beyond what can be reasonably consumed; difficulty or inability to discard food past its expiration date; stealing food or stashing it out of fear of starvation even when food is available and collection of food overflowing and making spaces in the home unusable.

    RISKS

    Numerous complications may arise from food hoarding. As with all hoarding types, there are usually underlying issues that this can indicate. For instance, food hoarding oftentimes signifies anxiety, eating disorders, traumatic events or another type of phobia. Additionally, having so much food stored in a household can lead to other complications such as pest and rodent infestations, as well as other unsanitary conditions such as spoiled foods and mold.

    The team at Home Clean Home has a tailored solution for food hoarding.  We will clean out cupboards, refrigerator, closets and any other areas where food is stored.  We will check expiration dates and then help you to reorganize your space to a manageable size of food.
