Hoarder Cleanup Training with Expert Matt Paxton


Hoarding and Hoarder Cleanup in Evanston and Chicago, IL by ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons

Back in October, ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons announced that the ServiceMaster Restore® team would be joining forces with A&E’s Hoarders helper, Matt Paxton. Since then, Paxton has been working tirelessly with franchise after franchise to provide hoarder cleanup training to employees of the franchise. With the support of the entire ServiceMaster Restore franchise, and now support from the leading expert Paxton, there’s no clearer choice for a hoarder cleanup service in Evanston, IL. Call ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons today.

Hoarding is more than just a cleanup service. Unlike fire restoration, water damage repair, or routine carpet cleaning, hoarder cleanup is a delicate procedure that has emotions involved with the process. Hoarding is characterized by having difficulty discarding things that may appear to have no value from an outside perspective. This can sometimes lead to unclean and unsafe living conditions for the person suffering from the disorder.

Paxton is now working to provide the proper training for each ServiceMaster franchise that offers hoarder cleanup services. With approximately 50 hours being put into training, Paxton and ServiceMaster are creating a dream team, with ServiceMaster providing the professional equipment and central locations, and Paxton providing the emotional training and support to deal with this delicate cleaning service.

Though training of the entire franchise is scheduled to take about 4 years total, everyone is extremely excited about the partnership. With the help of the show, Paxton was receiving thousands of leads per year, with the ability and resources to only help about 50 of those customers. ServiceMaster will help provide the resources and manpower to assist serving more of these leads.

Chicago’s ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons is one of the more centrally located ServiceMaster locations, and is next on the docket for training. For hoarder cleanup assistance in Chicago, IL, call us. We’ve got the training, the resources, and the professional support to help you or your loved one regain their life from this disorder.
