A new survey commissioned by SpareFoot shows that more than one-fourth of Americans think their home is at least somewhat cluttered.
In a survey conducted in October 2014 for SpareFoot, 6 percent of American adults said their house or apartment is "very" cluttered, and 21 percent classified their space as "somewhat" cluttered. Twenty-four percent of those surveyed by SpareFoot said their home is not too cluttered, and 46 percent said their space is not cluttered at all.
Twelve percent of Americans said that when they have guests over, they worry very or somewhat often that their home is too cluttered, the SpareFoot survey found. Another 23 percent said they fret about that occasionally, while 61 percent said they never worry about it.
"The SpareFoot survey indicates that millions of Americans are coping with clutter," said John Egan, editor in chief at SpareFoot. "In whatever form it takes, clutter can cause both physical and mental woes, and can reduce your quality of life."
SpareFoot, based in Austin, TX, helps people find and book self-storage units online, offline and via mobile.
