Depression Linked to Cluttered Homes – it’s time to get out, we can help
Did you know, that we actually have a negative psychological response to messy dwellings? Okay, so it’s not that surprising. Many of us have heard the ol’ “you are your environment” phrase, but let’s talk about the reality of these situations, what actually goes on in your mind, and what you can do to solve this.
Selling a Hoarder House – Why You Should Consider Selling: A messy house can lead to depression
Let’s begin by dividing two types of messy homes; clutter homes and hoarder homes.
A cluttered home, is a house or apartment that has many items (kick-knocks, paperwork, toys, etc.) taking up space. Many counter tops and surfaces are covered, cupboards are full, and storage rooms are a disheveled mess. Your family can still get around, but there’s an endless supply of stuff.
A hoarder home, is similar to a cluttered home, but stands as an extreme, where the “stuff” has taken over; leaving minimal walking room, chaotic item organization, and often tends to be dirty and not maintained as a result of things piling up. Think about it, how can you clean a room if the floor has been covered in “stuff” for years and you can barely open the door. Hoarder houses will have dust, bad air quality and mold may build up if there’s no air circulation and any moisture enters the environment.
If your home falls in either of these categories, know you’re not alone. Many people are faced with this situation, and are often not to blame, and have fallen victim of harsh circumstance. WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?
- Illness, whether it be yourself or a loved one, it can take a lot of time and money, leaving things to pile up.
- Finance & Career change; starting a new role, increased workload, holding multiple jobs, or even losing your job and having to start over again, can create such a demanding change in your life, that house cleaning, becomes an after thought. Bills must be paid, and there’s only so much time in a day.
- Family Dynamics & changes, whether divorce, family member disabilities (mental or physical), or elder parents moving in, all of these things can take away time and focus for dwelling maintenance. There’s only one you.
There are many reasons that a house can end up like this, but whatever your reason, you’re not alone, and we can help you have a fresh start. You’re worth leaving that clutter or hoarder home behind; as it’s no good for your health to live like that.
Believe it or not, even though these two different types of homes range on the mess intensity level, both can lead to the same amount of depression, anxiety and pain.
For both, it can be a never ending cycle; one step forward, two steps back. With life’s challenges and hardships, many people go through this, but sadly, many people stay stuck. Often people can’t find the time, money or help to clear their houses on their own, so they stay depressed and stuck. If this is you, you’re not alone. SO many people have to raise a family, work full time and keep things a float, and have no time or help to end the cycle to their messy house. The good news is there is a solution.
