Other Sources of Document Discovery – Hoarding, the Stockpiling of Sensitive Documents
Hoarding is another area to consider when it comes to proper and thorough document disposal.
Hoarding, as defined by the International OCD Foundation, is a compulsion which compels a person to keep too many items unnecessarily, even though many of these items are in obvious disrepair or useless.
Hoarding also often leads to the loss of important documents such as bills, checkbooks or even money amongst the clutter.
SDDStL can assist in dealing with the resolution of a house that has been inundated with hoarding activities. Once valuable documents are discovered, say upon the liquidation of a home, the documents can be eliminated and disposed of appropriately.
