Are you a bibliophile or are you a hoarder?

We all love books, but it is impossible to read them all. Some of our clients, including many academics, would have rathered to face the wrath of their landlord or housing cooperative, instead of throwing out one book.

The client in the video below was saved from eviction by Disaster Masters®, after they contacted us to use our disposophobia services.

If you, a loved one, client or colleague are a bibliophile and need assistance with a hoarding, syllogomania or Disposophobia problem, please contact us at 1-800-ThePlan, or send us an email at helpme@theplan.com for immediate solutions.

Organizing books need to be organized

Organizing books

The image on the right was taken at a recent Disaster Masters project in Manhattan. The client had amassed several dozen books about organizing and getting rid of clutter, but all were just part of the mess that started at the front door and continued throughout the apartment. She had not read a single chapter in any of the books.

Like many others that are classed by the media as hoarders, she had time management and multi-tasking issues. The books became the problem, rather than helping her to find a solution.

The real way to solve this mess comes from within. The first step to freeing yourself from the strangling effects of too much stuff is to make the decision to call the Disaster Masters.

Our coaching and Life Transition Management services are rungs on the ladder in freeing you from the cluttered life that you have created for yourself.

If you, a loved one, client or colleague need assistance with a hoarding or Disposophobia problem, please contact us at 1-800-ThePlan, or email me at helpme@theplan.com for immediate solutions.

Garbage removers

    • The more they haul away, the more money they make. They trash all items in the home – both good and bad.
    • Laborers do not know the difference between junk mail and a dividend check.
    • They sell your valuables at auctions.
    • They sell your valuables at flea markets.
    • It is little wonder that untrained day laborers and small moving companies simply throw everything away – they see it as garbage.
    • They get paid twice – when they haul it and when they sell it.
    • They haul trash.

Hoarding Kills

The death of a firefighter in Brooklyn is the latest high profile incident, where a hoarder has caused undue harm to themselves and/ or others, due to being incumbered with stuff.Fire image

Over the years, we at Disaster Masters® have recovered many hoarder’s homes that have been ravaged by fire and staved off many likely fire disasters too.

The image on the right is of an apartment in a Manhattan high-rise, where the owner had a small fire. We were able to recover the home successfully after the fire, but the apartment-owner and her neighbors were very lucky that the abundance of flammable material in the apartment did not cause the whole building to catch fire.

The image below is of a home in Queens, where much like the cause of the Brooklyn fire, the elderly homeowner had left an electrical wire buried amongst a mass of newspapers and garbage. The Queens homeowner was lucky, as the wires merely smoldered and did not start a significant blaze, the consequences of which would have been extremely grave.Pre fire image

Statics show that there are almost 6 hoarders on each of New York’s 72,000 city blocks, so there are a lot of people, many elderly and infirm, that are suffering from these conditions. If you, a loved one, client or colleague live amongst these conditions, please contact Disaster Masters at 1-800-ThePlan, or email us at helpme@theplan.com for immediate solutions.
