Firefighters had to cut into an upstairs window when they were unable to reach the occupant via the downstairs entrance. As they did so piles of rubbish bags tumbled down to the streets.


The flat was occupied by a woman and her son who have been described as ‘Vulnerable’ by social services. The Daily Mail also revealed that social services had raised the alarm after losing contact with the woman and her son and being unable to reach them through their front door.

Clutter Can Be a Problem For Us All

Hoarding of this extreme nature is regarded as an illness and sufferers should seek help. However, in a time when people have more possessions and many people are downsizing, being cluttered can be a problem for many of us.

“We don’t have many customers with storage issues as severe as hoarders! However, many of our customers want our help because they need to get more storage in their homes and make a better use of space.  We design and manufacture made to measure bespoke fitted furniture for storage solutions to suit each person individually.

A large proportion of our clients are also downsizing – perhaps due to retirement, or family moving out.  They need to make sure they can store their belongings in a practical way, whilst looking attractive. Bespoke fitted furniture for bedrooms and the living room can really help to alleviate the problem of clutter.  Our bespoke fitted furniture means your living room never has to look like a hoarders’!”
