A breeding ground for dangerous bacteria, piles of mess means warm, dry areas for organic matter to fester. Insects and rodents make their homes here, as they are safe from predators and constantly surrounded by food and safe areas to breed. Moreover, the prevalence of dirty, sharp objects in the mess create opportunities for infection, all it takes is a nail being stepped on or a broken bottle scratching a passerby for anyone to become exposed to deadly illness. Many hoarders lose their awareness of the mess that surrounds them every day and become exposed to sickness and disease.
