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.
If you know of someone in the Ravenswood area who requires help with hoarder or clutter clean up services, call ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons at 773-376-1110.
