The Chicago community of Wrigleyville is named so because it surrounds the gem of the area, the United States’ oldest National League baseball field, Wrigley Field.

Commercial and residential properties like theses can suffer water damage, and ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons are pros at providing fast water damage restoration services in Wrigleyville.

When people think about water damage, they often think of a natural disaster like a flood or heavy rains soaking and causing damage to the basement. However, flooding most often occurs from common household mishaps, like an overloaded washing machine that breaks or a faulty toilet. ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons can handle all types of flooding and water damage. We have the tools and experienced technicians to get you back to pre-loss condition.

We can restore water damage to your home or business restoration due to a variety of causes such as:

  • Groundwater Leaks: Even during fairly normal weather occurrences, groundwater has a way of finding its way to where it’s not welcomed: into your crawlspace or basement. Left untreated, this can cause hazardous conditions in your home, including mold growth and the rotting of your foundation and the structure of your home.
  • Floods: Sudden and heavy rainstorms in the spring and summer can lead to flash floods and there may not be time to prepare. When this happens, severe water damage can happen in basements. Water damage restoration should begin as soon as possible to minimize damage in these cases.
  • Plumbing Incidents: A burst pipe can release hundreds of gallons of water very quickly, which can cause severe damage. This can happen because of leaking water heaters, frozen or broken pipes, or other sources.
  • Hidden Problems: That tiny leak under your sink or underneath your tub can be slowly doing damage without you even knowing about it. This hidden water and moisture can cause rot damage, mold damage, and structural damage after it reveals itself.

If you have experienced any of these problems with excess water in your home or business, time is of the essence. Call ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons for any water damage restoration services in Wrigleyville at 773-376-1110.

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

We are happy to discuss your specific situation and concerns in a truly confidential and compassionate manner. If you need help with hoarder and clutter clean-up in Wrigleyville, Chicago, IL, call us at 773-376-1110.
