Hoarding is a mental condition and it is characterized by persistent difficulty in eliminating even unwanted or unused possessions. These items or possessions often include those with no values. An individual suffering from hoarding will experience debilitating thoughts of having to do away with such possessions. It is important to get rid of hoarding habits to free your living space. Fortunately, M&M Waste can help in evacuating the waste for proper disposal at landfills and recycling facilities. The following tips can help hoarders deal with the habit once and for all;
Dont be Judgmental with Your Possessions
The first step in helping a hoarder purge wastes is to take a non-judgmental approach. Avoid directing attention to the hoarding issue, and ask general questions about their lives. You need to listen more and be patient while avoiding passing judgments. With this, the hoarder will understand the need to stop hoarding some items unnecessarily.
Offer Multi-faceted Assistance
Once you have established that important rapport with a hoarder and the person has established some trust in you, then you should offer practical assistance to deal with the hoarding issue. The assistance should come with hoarding treatments, alongside a practical de-cluttering method. Keep in mind that most hoarders initially dont think they have a hoarding problem, hence you should not force the hoarder to do away with any item. You should begin decluttering from places like the kitchen, and basement where more spaces can be created and the hoarder is less emotionally attached to lots of outdated and damaged items.
Start a Plan of Action with the Hoarder
You need to convince the hoarder over the need to declutter fast. You should also ask yourself the question of how to get rid of clutter very fast? Let the hoarder be involved actively in creating the plan to give them that comfort that they can replace disposed items in the nearest future.
When you allow the hoarder becomes the ultimate decision-maker, restoring order and eliminating outdated items becomes easier. You should also keep in mind that getting professional advice is also important especially when the hoarder is not fully prepared psychologically to lose certain items. Professional psychologists will help detach the emotional attachment between a hoarder and items that are no longer relevant to the space they occupy.
