WHAT IS INFORMATION HOARDING?
An information hoarder is not entirely the same as someone who is just on a perpetual quest for knowledge. Maybe this is how this journey started, but it is also how you ended up in this predicament. Information hoarding covers a wide range of printed media. The clinical name for information hoarding is referred to as Bibliomania or more commonly referred to as book hoarding. People with this disorder have a difficult time of letting go of anything printed such as letters, greeting cards, tax receipts, tapes, calendars, books, etc.
Sometimes, people have professions such as researchers or professors that require them to accrue a vast amount of printed material that they need to reference. This can end up turning into an obsession at some point during a lifetime.
INFORMATION HOARDING SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
An information hoarder has a strong, irrational fear that the information will be unavailable if it is ever needed again. They struggle to part with outdated paper items such as old calendars and have a lack of willingness to discard unused materials even when not being used.
An information hoarder will compulsively collect any material where information can be found. This can be in the form of books, pamphlets, old receipts or tax returns, recipes, business cards, magazine tears, or even video tapes. The information will usually be kept without ever being referred to again. Unfortunately, the extreme clutter caused by the large stacks of paper can be a fire hazard.
INFORMATION HOARDING SOLUTION
The last thing we would ever want to do is just come in and throw things away. We start by coming in and working with you to sort through all of your information and deciding what you want to keep and what you want to dispose of. With the help of our team, this process can be done swiftly and efficiently. For items you wish to get rid of, we will bring in a commercial-grade shredder, and anything that doesn’t have any value as a hard copy (such as old documents and bills) we can scan and save as a disk or on the hard drive of your computer. We can donate books, magazines, and bring you a receipt for tax credit. We are proud of our unique 7-Step Solution that is tailored individually for each hoarder based on your specific needs. The plan will be customized for you.
