Once collection becomes hoarding, the accumulation of items in a home or commercial space can create hazards, and the safety of the occupants can become a serious health and liability concern.
These safety concerns can arise from something as simple as stacks of newspapers, which cause a potential fire hazard, to boxes piled up so high that it would be difficult to quickly exit the property in an emergency. Even more alarming, these unhealthy and unsafe living conditions can multiply if another disaster were to occur, such as a fire or flood.
