Hoarder Cleanup Chicago
We’ve watched the reality shows, we’ve heard stories or we’ve seen it firsthand. Hoarding has a strong presence in our society. Hoarding begins with small cluttering, which can eventually lead to an overwhelming abundance of clothes, knickknacks, trinkets, books, hygiene products, boxes, well the list is quite endless. The problem with hoarding is what happens on the floor, wall and ceiling surfaces. SERVPRO of Ravenswood recently finished a hoarder cleanup Chicago job. This was a case where there was an unexpected water damage incident at a condominium that was abandoned. The building board was not aware that the unit abandoned, nor were they aware that the condo was FILLED with hoarder-type content until an odor was detected by neighboring units. Once the building maintenance personnel was cleared to enter the unit, it was discovered that the tenants were no longer living there and had left all content behind. The water damage that affected this hoarder home did reveal mold – secondary damage caused by moisture that was not treated (aka, dried) in time.
