Hoarding Clean Up

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

In many cases, due to the level of contamination in a hoarder environment, our highly trained technicians must utilize protective gear to avoid infection.

Yes, with advance notice we can schedule time for a ServiceMaster Restore Restoration Technician to meet with you and provide access to your requested items. A service charge may apply.

Who is responsible for paying for the service?

As the property owner you are responsible for payment and will need to sign a form authorizing payment for the restoration services. If this is an insurance claim, ServiceMaster Restore generally collects only the deductible (co-payment) amount from you and bills the balance to your insurance provider as a service to you. If you have a large loss, your mortgage company may be included as a payee on the payment from your insurance company, and you may need to obtain a signature from them as well. If your claim is not covered by insurance or you decide not to file a claim, you will be expected to pay in full. A payment schedule may be agreed upon prior to the start of any non-insured work.
