Level Two on The Hoarding Scale; Blue

As a follow up to yesterdays post, here is the skinny on level two of the hoarding scale. Level two is described as the guarded level.

* Structure--One major exit in the home is blocked and one major appliance such as the HVAC isn't working.

* Animals and Pests--Evidence of pet waste or odor. Also insects present in the home.

* Household Functions--Clutter is starting to obstruct some functions in living areas. The home isn't being cleaned on a regular basis.

* Health and Safety--The house is no longer sanitary. There are various odors including mildew or kitchen

This is the description of level two hoarding. There are five different levels of hoarding. Tomorrow I will discuss level three of the hoarding scale.
