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 Of Cornwall, 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.

ServiceMaster workers were very courteous and tried to cause as little inconvenience as possible. They fully wanted to "get things back to normal". Even when obviously very busy with other issues, they tried to keep everything moving along at our house too. They were clean & tidy right through, and made sure everything was spick and span when they were finished. We were very impressed with their service.

Mike Fortier and his crew were wonderful to work with. The restoration project ran into some significant hiccups with the carpet install and Mike was there to handle it all which eased my stress significantly. On site, his team was professional, courteous and friendly. Would definitely hire them again

Dan, owner of Service Master, responded quickly to an emergency call after the wind storm claimed a sizeable section of my roof as another victim. My ceiling started leaking as a result of water damage, when my shingles were blown off. Both he, and Mike, the General Contractor, were very patient and understanding in explaining the procedures involved in reparing the damage to my home. At one point, one of my cats escaped through a basement window and when I notified them, they were very compassionate about the situation. Mike suggested that I return to my residence in the event that he returned, which he did. Immediately the following morning, Dan secured the basement window with reinforced screening in order to prevent a furture escape as well as provide much needed ventilation to my home during the repairs. Mike was consistently available to answer any questions that I had with regard to the ongoing work at my residence, was prompt with his follow-ups with any concerns that I voiced, and regularly gave progress reports during each stage up to the completion of the work order. During the final stages of repair, Dan did his personal inspection to make sure that all was in order. Both gentlemen were very approachable and professional. At some points they went that extra mile to offer their services. They, and their support staff, completed the repairs in a timely manner and paid attention to detail to insure that the home owner (me) was satisfied. Many thanks to Dan, Mike and the crew (roofers, painters, clean up staff and anyone I may have inadvertently missed) for making my house a home again.
