MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Often highlighted on reality television shows, breaking news headlines, and special reports, the hoarding condition has grown exponentially as a leading source of intrigue and wonderment in the public eye. Thanks to hoarding cleaning specialists turning the lives of compulsive hoarders around on national television, viewers can tune in and watch a once hopelessly hoarded house sparkle and shine after about an hour or so (give or take a few commercial breaks in between). What these televisions do not show to the general public within their allotted time slot are the painstaking tragedies and hard work that make up the grueling impacts of hoarding.

Address Our Mess, a well-respected leader in the hoarding and clutter cleaning industry, has devised a list of five true Impacts of Hoarding. These impacts do not serve as a diagnosis or symptoms of a larger or less-defined condition. Rather, Address Our Mess' Impacts of Hoarding helps hoarders and their helpers to understand how their lives are truly affected by this compulsive and oppressive disorder. These five Impacts of Hoarding – physical, mental, emotional, social, and financial – are highlighted in the latest episode of Address Our Mess' video series entitled Impacts of Hoarding.

While some hoarders willingly expose their situation in the media for all to see, many of the sixteen million Americans who suffer with the condition on a daily basis are embarrassed and ashamed to even acknowledge that hoarding is such a huge part of their life. The hoarding condition can be defined as the compulsive need or desire to latch on to every physical item in their possession regardless of its monetary or sentimental worth. This inability to part with items such as mail, papers, food, trash, clothing, boxes, and other seemingly valueless items is due to a seemingly unexplainable emotional connection to these objects. Such a connection usually occurs after one or a series of traumatic events in a hoarder's life.

Getting hoarding help from a professional such as Address Our Mess, therapists, or support groups is the first step to curing the five main Impacts of Hoarding. By simply acknowledging that this oppressive condition has taken over a large majority of their lives, hoarders have proven that they are willing to take the next step in their recovery process. This will alleviate physical hazards like fire, entrapment, and injury due to neglecting property as well as cure emotional and mental burdens brought on by social anxiety and isolation.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time.
