Hoarder house: before and after - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Before and after look: Inside the home of a hoarder

Home sweet home? Or domestic disaster? Experts are taking you inside a Memphis hoarder's hideout, where clothing is piled six feet high, trash is stacked to the ceiling, and rodents sleep just a few inches from where the homeowner lays her head every night.

The images inside the hoarder's home are shocking and sad at the same time.

How to use this interactive: Below you will find several before-and-after sliders of the hoarder's home. Take the white handle in the middle of the photo and slide it from left to right to examine the rooms before and after they were cleaned. Cleaning these homes is just the beginning of a hoarder's road to recovery. On mobile devices it is easier to click "show only before" or "show only after."
