Among the older population of Lincolnwood, there can be challenges caused by severe clutter or hoarding. ServiceMaster By Simons understands these challenges, as we have helped remediate homes in the area that have been affected in the past. We know this is a difficult situation to navigate with a friend or loved one, and we can help with our clutter or hoarding cleanup services.
It’s important to get help when you realize that the clutter or hoarding is so severe that it has become a danger to the hoarder or the family members within the home. A few of the hazards of an overly cluttered home include:
- Fire: Fire is a major concern and claims the lives of hoarders every year. Proper smoke and fire alarms are rarely in working order in these homes. Since the house is filled with items that are blocking doors and entryways, clutter and hoarding can prevent a safe exit and impede firefighting efforts.
- Air Quality: Homes impacted by hoarding and clutter situations tend to have air quality that is poor and even dangerous. Mold and bacteria can thrive in hoarding environments and in homes where there are pets. High levels of ammonia can also severely affect the health and well-being of the people residing in the home.
- Trips and falls: As we age, we lose our depth perception, which can make people unsteady on their feet. The piles of papers, documents, clutter, trash and other hoarding paraphernalia can seriously impede the walking space in a home and lead to serious injury when an elderly person trips and falls.
ServiceMaster By Simons can provide the support and services required to return any clutter or hoarding situation to a clean and safe home environment.
