From what I know it is usually related to a traumatic experience or immense loss in the persons life that causes them to not have the ability to emotionally detach themselves from certain things. At least that’s what I’ve gathered from the show.

Like with all mental illness, there’s no one specific cause. A lot of it may also be a genetic predisposition (there have actually been a couple shows where they follow the kids and how they show hoarding tendencies as well). That being said it is a form of obsessive compulsive disorder and is highly tied to panic and anxiety disorders.
