Hoarding Cleanup

hoarder

Compulsive hoarding is a complex anxiety disorder that makes it difficult for a person to discard or part with possessions, regardless of actual value.  Hoarders may feel the item will be useful one day or feel sentimental about it. Many have dealt with this problem their entire lives, and often only after other family members become involved is the issue addressed.

In addition to excessive clutter, other serious effects of compulsive hoarding can include fire or health hazards and infestations. In many cases due to the level of contamination in a hoarder environment, our highly trained technicians must utilize protective gear to avoid infection. Our service includes debris removal, biohazard disposal, content cleaning for salvageable items and general cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing services.

At ServiceMaster Restore of Markham/Unionville, we know that successfully handling a hoarding situation calls for an honest, realistic approach and skills that can only come from special training and a 60-year legacy of professional cleaning. Working together with Matt Paxton, founder of Clutter Cleaner, ServiceMaster Restore brings the training and experience necessary to help resolve a hoarding situation, large or small. We restore homes—and lives.

When we called in the insurance company when the water main broke they called Service Master and they came right away. When you are trying to run a business and you are under water you need help right away. They came sucked up all the water and put huge industrial fans to dry everything out to minimize the damage and get us up and running ASAP. We really appreciated that. My husband needed the help as he couldn't deal with the flood on his own with only our staff. We are not equipped for that type of problem. The people who came from Service Master were all pleasant congenial; a pleasure to work with. They did a professional job on the repairs. We were very satisfied over all with all work completed. Thank you so much!

They have done a very professional work. They found exactly the same paint to match the existing, found exactly the same carpet and put the furniture back in place and left the room clean. All the workers were ready to satisfy us and very kind. Good job!

Hi John Cook: I have had your company do several jobs for me and I have been quite pleased and satisfied with each. Installing hardwood floors throughout my house, the installation of a back flow sewer valve, the installation patio stones in the back of the house and the installation an special air exchanger device to remove the Radon Gas in the house. Your company also followed up on a major emergency disaster at the Commercial Condominium property where I am the property manager, after a water main ruptured under the building at 15 Capella court that flooded out16 business units. Another disaster company had been originally called because they are located in the condominium complex. They did most of the initial work removing content and drywall and insulation. Your Mitigation Manager James Hiscoe was called in to look over the situation for me and he pointed out several issue that the insurance adjuster would question. He also advised the Disaster Company of these issues and had they rectify them. When it came time to do the rebuild, they told me they could not, nor would they attempt to finish up the job. They said it was too big a job and told me to call ServiceMaster. When your company was called in I was very pleased with the quality and professionalism of your people on site. Keep up the excellent work and you can rest assured I will recommend your services to anyone who may ask me.

It was a residential restoration situation and Service Master was great at keeping me informed as to progress, offering both a higher and lower quote depending on the extend of our needs and also taking the iniative in helping resolve unforseen problems which required co ordinating with third parties such as a plumber
