    Estate Cleaning ChicagoInheriting a family estate can cause mixed emotions depending on the situation. Folks often find there is heavy estate cleaning and restoration required. Is this something you can tackle on your own, or do you need a company like ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons in Chicago to handle your estate cleaning?

    Estate cleaning is not just the process of removing unwanted junk and using a few household cleaners. Many estates require proper restoration to retain the value of the location. This can involve painters, moving companies, recycling, etc. While this is something that can be managed, you need to ask yourself if you can handle this responsibility.

    A great alternative to personally worrying about how to properly clean the estate is to hire professionals.

You may have appliances that need to be removed, walls that need cleaning and painting, property that needs to be donated, or historical inventory that needs to be properly restored and tagged. All of these tasks can add stress to a situation that may already be weighing on you.

    An easy way to decide if professionals are needed is to tour the estate and start a cleaning list. If you find the list itself is overwhelming, it’s time to call a professional.
