    While you’re still looking back trying to figure out how summer went by so quickly, autumn and the remainder of the better-weather months are passing by rapidly. For hoarders, this time can be even more stressful because the cold weather is another reason to stay indoors and keep the mess the way it is. It’s important that hoarders step away for a minute to remember that cleaning out their home before the winter hits can mean the difference between a comfortable home and a stressful holiday season. ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons in the South Loop of Chicago reminds hoarders of the importance of hoarding cleanup for the end of the fall season.

    Luckily, for hoarders and their stress of hoarding cleanup, there’s still time to get hoarder cleanup taken care of. Some hoarders, to raise money and get rid of some of their items, choose to have a garage sale.
