When in good repair, these apartments have safety features installed to prevent damage.

Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration

ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons, Chicago’s leader in Commercial and Residential Disaster Restoration Services, provides emergency Fire Damage Restoration in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood

Ravenswood is a bustling north side community of Chicago. Bordered by the Chicago River on the west, this mixed residential and commercial area has the highest number of distinctive courtyard style residential buildings in the city. With excellent access to the city via many transit lines, Ravenswood is a popular choice for living in the city for young professionals and families.

With the proximity of the buildings being so close, fire can spread very quickly in the Ravenswood area. Residents need to have a clear plan on how to escape their dwelling in the event of a fire. Here are some fire safety tips everyone who lives in an apartment or condo should know:

  • Know where your exits are
    There must to be two means of exits (called egress) from your rental unit. A primary exit is usually a door that leads to a stairway or hallway to the outside. A secondary exit would be another door in the structure with an indoor or outdoor staircase, or a fire escape accessible through a window. An elevator is not an acceptable means of exit as elevators typically go offline during a fire.
  • Keep exits clear
    Make sure there are no objects such as bicycles, garbage bins, or strollers blocking doors. Also make sure that your apartment door lock can be opened from the inside with a thumb turn that does not require the use of a key.
  • Maintain for fire safety
    Replace batteries in smoke detectors, make sure hallway area lights are operational, and latches on windows are able to be opened.

Fire damage can occur more quickly than you think. A small, stovetop grease fire in one apartment or condo can quickly spread to multiple units or nearby buildings and require extensive fire damage restoration services. Whether your damage is from smoke or flames, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons can provide quick, efficient fire damage restoration services for your Ravenswood building. Time is of the essence to prevent further damage, so do not delay in calling us at 773-376-1110

Hoarder & Clutter Cleaning

ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons provides professional Hoarder and Clutter Cleanup services in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood

Regarded as having the highest valued houses in the Chicago area, Ravenswood contains many beautiful turn of the century homes built in a European style. Comprised at one time of a large German immigrant population, the gentrification of the area, along with its excellent access to transportation via the CTA Brown Line, makes the neighborhood a popular location for housing and business.

Regardless of the community, there are people who need our help. If you, a family member, or a loved one is dealing with extreme clutter or hoarding in Ravenswood, we at ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons can help. This hard-to-understand mental health issue is closely linked to obsessive compulsive disorder and can be debilitating, leaving the person afflicted feeling alone and misunderstood.

People who hoard are often afraid of getting rid of anything because they think they may need it later. When they are surrounded by mounds of clutter, it makes them less accessible and creates a physical and psychological barrier between them and the outside world. Our trained and certified technicians comprehend the emotional side of hoarding and clutter cleanup and how difficult this disorder can be on those who suffer from it. We also understand what needs to be done to remediate the home and bring it back to a safe place to live. A home that has clutter can be unsanitary, but hoarding can be far worse and potentially life-threatening to the inhabitants.

Our trained technicians can arrive on the scene and help sort through the clutter, assist with determining what should be kept or discarded, transport items to donation sites or resale businesses, and properly remove and dispose of items that cannot be cleaned or salvaged. If the situation is serious, we have access to mental health professionals who can supply the required attention and support for the individual client. At all times we approach the situation with compassion, respect, care, and the intent of resolving the clutter to make the home livable again.
