SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 10/04/12 -- Storage.com has created a new infographic that shines new light on the disorder known as hoarding. Although TV shows such as "Hoarders" has brought attention to this poorly understood problem, many hoarders still do not get the help they need.
Hoarding can be a life threatening problem, causing unsanitary and toxic conditions in the home and even fires. Certain segments of the population are more likely to hoard than others and there are behavioral signs that may indicate a predisposition to hoarding. The infographic helps the reader recognize symptoms of hoarding in themselves and in people close to them so that action can be taken before the hoarding problem spirals out of control.
"Hoarders are typically in denial about their problem. Our goal is to educate people to recognize the signs of hoarding and hopefully inspire the hoarders or their loved ones to seek help," said Kenneth McCall, a Storage.com spokesperson.
The infographic is published on the storage.com blog and can be found at: http://blog.storage.com/how-do-you-stack-up-to-a-hoarder-infographic/
