To the non-hoarder, understanding why individuals would save every little thing that crosses their path is almost impossible. However difficult, making an effort to understand why your loved one hoards is important if you are to help him or her overcome this compulsive behavior. In order to help you help your loved one, or even help yourself, let’s take a look at the underlying causes that drive people to hoard.
Much is still unknown about hoarding, which has only recently been identified as a psychological disorder. Still, researchers believe that genetics plays a role, and studies suggest that 50 percent of hoarders grew up in a household in which hoarding was a problem. It is possible that the hoarding mentality can be passed from parent to child.
Another reason psychologists believe some people hoard is because they have a tendency to attach sentimental value to objects more easily than most people. The nature of the emotional attachment that many hoarders experience with the object they hold on to is not known, but it has been observed to be very strong.
Sentimental value is not the only type of value that hoarders see in the items they allow to pile up all over their homes. Many hoarders believe that the junk they save has monetary value, or they fear that the value of the things they hold onto would rise in the future after they part with these objects.
A combination of personal encouragement and professional assistance may help hoarders overcome some of their most clutter-creating and emotionally draining behaviors.

Concrete is one of the most durable and cost-effective flooring materials around, and it is heavily used in commercial and retail settings the world over. When concrete cracks, it can sometimes be repaired easily and cheaply. Larger cracks and sunken concrete slabs, however, almost always have to be replaced.
If the concrete on your commercial property has been damaged beyond repair, you can benefit from hiring a demolition expert to break up your existing concrete and haul it away to make room for a new concrete floor. This is generally the best course of action to take in cases in which subterranean erosion has caused concrete to crack, sink, or spar.
Are you preparing to replace your existing concrete or expand a concrete floor? If so, the first step you should take is to hire an experienced demolition expert offering both breaking and hauling services. To speak with a concrete breaking and demolition contractor in the San Diego area, call Silverback Hauling & Demolition at (619) 618-0676.

Recycling skeptics claim that recycled goods and trash deposited in recycling bins and dumpsters all end up in the same place. To find out just how far from the truth this claim is, check out this fascinating video clip.
In it, you will be given a close-up tour of the recently completed recycling center at the Waste Management facility in Surprise, Arizona. Also called the Arizona Ecocenter, this single stream recycling center utilizes several state-of-the-art technologies to filter out trash and separate paper, plastic, metal, and other recyclable materials.
After watching this video, you will have a much better grasp on how recycling works and why it is important to toss your recyclable goods in a recycling bin rather than the trash. To work with a junk removal contractor in San Diego who ensures that all reusable and recyclable materials are put to good use rather than hauled off to the landfill, call Silverback Hauling & Demolition at (619) 618-0676.

Workplace clutter is associated with disorganization and lack of productivity. It also creates obstacles that employees must work around in order to prevent injury and office equipment damage. If your commercial space is flooded with junk that is not essential to your business operations, hire a hauling service professional who specializes in junk removal to help you rid your business of clutter. This will:
Free Up Space
It is amazing how much longer it takes an employee to locate a sought-after object in a cluttered office than it does in an organized environment. By getting rid of clutter at your workplace, you will free up space that can be used for storing necessary materials in an organized manner. In addition to making it easier for workers to navigate a workspace, de-cluttering your office is also likely to boost productivity.
Promote a Professional Environment
Tossing or recycling broken office furniture, stacks of paperwork that are years old and no longer necessary, defunct computers, and other junk can do volumes for the atmosphere of a commercial space. The effects of such a junk removal effort are positive for employees and customers alike, as it improves the workplace environment and makes a great first impression on prospective patrons.
Eliminate Safety Hazards
Clutter can be quite dangerous. The most obvious dangers associated with clutter are the physical obstacles that can trip-up those who work around them. When clutter reaches proportions that are reminiscent of a hoarder’s home or office, dangers grow to include health concerns as well.
Serving all of San Diego County, Silverback Hauling & Demolition is a full-service junk removal company.

It’s not easy dealing with a loved one that hoards, whether it’s a family member, a spouse, or a partner. It’s not a good idea to throw away your loved one’s hoarded belongings, or to tell him or her that it’s time to stop hoarding, because either of these actions are usually hurtful and ineffective. Read this article for tips on how to talk to your loved one about his or her hoarding problem, and who to call for hauling services in San Diego.
Know the Behavior Behind Hoarding
A hoarding problem can range from minor to serious, but in any case it’s important to recognize that hoarding is an ingrained habit. Improving a hoarding problem takes months or sometimes years, so it’s important to be patient. If the hoarding problem is serious, your loved one will not see the hoarding as a problem, even in the face of stress, safety risks, allergies, or being unable to use a certain area of the house.
Positive reinforcement is more helpful to your loved one than negativity, so always make an effort to stay upbeat. After all, your loved one is not hoarding to be malicious. Your loved one’s habits do not indicate that he or she loves the items more than you. Focus on acknowledging progress, and avoid making any comments that are demotivating.
Seek Professional Help
Progress cannot be made until your loved one is ready to change. And sometimes, seeing a professional therapist is the best way to help your loved one acknowledge his or her problem and start to work on de-cluttering his or her life.
