ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons, Chicago’s leader in Specialty Cleaning Services, provides Hoarder and Clutter Cleanup Services for homes, apartments and senior facilities in Chicago’s Lakeview Community
Lakeview is the second largest suburb of Chicago and home to more than 94,000 residents. The neighborhoods in this northern suburb are diverse and rich with popular bars, nightclubs, and theatres. Wrigley Field stands proudly amidst all of it, making this area a popular place to visit and to live, with a short commute to the Loop for professionals. Unfortunately, like many communities, some of the residents of Lakeview suffer from an affliction known as compulsive hoarding. ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons understands this unique and difficult situation, and we have compassionate and willing technicians ready to help with hoarder clean up and clutter clean up.
Compulsive hoarding behavior is defined and characterized by the excessive acquisition of objects stored in the home. People who suffer from this form of obsessive compulsive disorder, or “disposophobia,” have a pathological fear of discarding items. It has been associated with impaired social functioning, adverse effects on relationships with family and friends, and economic burdens. When significant, it can prevent normal living conditions for the residents including not being able to sleep in bedrooms, utilize kitchen or bathroom areas, and serious sanitation concerns in the home.
Symptoms associated include:
- Collecting things like mail or newspapers for years
- Not being able to take out trash for fear of throwing away something useful
- Saving items that aren’t needed because of the possibility of others perhaps needing them in the future
ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons understands that hoarder and clutter clean up requires experienced, reliable, and discreet technicians who understand this disorder well. We provide full clean-out services, including:
- Tagging of items you want kept
- Transport, cleaning, and storage of furniture and appliances
- Full cleaning of residence
- Full repainting of residence (if requested)
- Complete repair or remodeling of residence (if requested)
- We will transport any items no longer needed by the resident to charity, resale shops, or appropriate waste disposal area if unusable
