Uptown embraces the best Chicago has to offer. From the historic theatres to the nightclubs that have launched jazz careers, this part of the city doesn’t sleep much. In this Lake Michigan bordered community, over 82 different languages are spoken! It’s truly rich with diverse Chicago history.
Yet within this bustling community are situations behind closed doors that need help. If you or a family member have problems with severe clutter or hoarding issues, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons can get your home back to livable conditions.
Studies have shown that the hoarding stems from the frontal lobes of the brain, which are associated with planning, motivating, and organizing. Many people affected by it describe themselves as “collectors” or “pack rats,” but severe cases of hoarding can place people in dangerous living conditions if not remediated. Clutter is the over-abundance of items in a home; hoarding is the inability to get rid of anything and having a home that is compromised as a consequence. Hoarders often buy many items they already have or worry that they will run out of something. Often many rooms in the house are un-usable.
Whether the job is for hoarder clean-up or clutter clean-up in Uptown, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons can help. We’ll help assess the situation and begin to develop a remediation plan. We can help identify which items should be kept, what should be salvaged, and what can be discarded. We’ll also make arrangements to safely and legally discard any items that need to be disposed of. If the home is in need of sanitation or repair, we can assist with those efforts and liaise with local authorities if necessary, including facilitating biohazardous clean-ups.
We understand that hoarder and clutter clean-up is a difficult thing to go through and our trained technicians act with professionalism and compassion at all times. To discuss the process and begin a new chapter in your Uptown residence, please call our empathetic staff at ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons today at 773-376-1110.
