Squalor Survivors

"Squalor is a confronting word. It's a degree of mess that goes beyond untidiness.

The state of the house deteriorates, small piles become big piles, then even bigger piles.

Sometimes beds can't be slept in, tables disappear under clutter. Appliances and equipment
can't be used.  Perhaps they broke down, but you fear a repair person will report the mess,
or access is blocked by other items....."
