ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons, Chicago’s leader in professional Specialty Cleaning Services, provides Hoarder and Clutter Cleaning Services to homes, apartments and senior facilities in Chicago’s Wrigleyville neighborhood
Wrigleyville, one of Chicago’s oldest neighborhoods, has pockets of housing dating as far back as the 1900s. While the area did enjoy a brief revival period in the 1980s with the construction of some high-rise condos, many of the homes on the tree-lined streets are in the classic, Midwestern bungalow style. These houses are home to people of many different ethnicities in the city. The area also has one of the highest number of homes in Chicago occupied by adults aged sixty and up. In Wrigleyville, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons has successfully remediated homes that were in need of clutter and hoarder clean-up.
The Dangers of Clutter and Hoarding
The progression from clutter to hoarding can sometimes be a fine line. While true hoarding is considered a mental health issue, people with excessive clutter can also be in danger and may just be too embarrassed to ask for help. The problem is that a cluttered area can quickly become unsafe, causing a risk of trips and falls. Hoarding is a step beyond clutter and usually sees the inhabitant with an overabundance of items that they do not want to get rid of because they believe they may need them. Homes of hoarders are often the site of serious biohazards such as mold, insect infestations, and rodent droppings, all which can cause serious health concerns for both the inhabitants and the neighbors. Whether you are facing these conditions yourself, for a friend, or for loved one, we can help assess the situation and begin the clutter or hoarding clean-up process for you.
The clean-up process includes:
- Assistance with identifying what items should be disposed of, donated, or kept
- Help with the shredding of sensitive documents if needed
- Distribution of items to family members
- Help with the organization and distribution of any items that will need to be donated
- Professional cleaning and sanitization of the property
- Facilitation of the necessary steps to talk to lawyers, trusts, or government agencies
