Hoarding Cleaning Services in Mt. Prospect, IL

(847) 558-7765

Millions of Americans are affected both directly and directly by hoarding each year; therefore, the consequences of hoarding can have a drastic effect on the individual and their family. Hoarding is a mental disorder that disallows the individual to part with their personal items. Over time, these belongings will accumulate throughout the home, blocking access to emergency exits. They can also harbor the perfect environment for mold growth.

However, ProTech Restoration provides professional hoarding cleaning services to remove all unnecessary items as well as sanitize the home in Mt. Prospect, IL. As we understand that this is a stressful time for the affected individual, we take a compassionate approach to the situation, establishing a relationship before starting the cleanup process.

Taking a Compassionate Approach to Hoarding

Hoarding is a delicate situation; the affected individual is suffering from a mental disorder. Often times they are also embarrassed by the mess they have created in their homes; therefore, a close friend or family member must reach out to them and talk about the situation. After discussing the need for hoarding cleaning services, ProTech Restoration will establish a relationship with the individual upon arrival. We will then put him/her in charge of the cleaning process, not throwing away anything without his/her approval.

As each hoarding case is unique, the hoarded belongings can include a wide variety of items, include: books, newspapers, knick-knacks, antiques, furniture, and even animals.  Our technicians handle hoarding cleaning projects of all sizes. After all of the unnecessary items have been removed, we will remove any mold and disinfect all damaged building materials and remaining content. We will also deodorize the property, removing any odors that may still linger from the hoarded items.

Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

"Had a great experience working with Marshall when we had an emergency leak at my mom’s house. He immediately started working to salvage what we could. I felt like he absolutely understood the urgency, and treated my mom like his own! He and the rest of the team were super easy to work with and answered our (many) questions along the way. They were very transparent about the process which was extremely helpful as this was our first time with this kind of issue in 30+ years of owning the house. We so appreciate ProTech for aiding us during our time of need."

"My experience with ProTech was wonderful from the first visit thru the last. Ben did a great job of evaluating the work that needed to be done and explaining everything to me. Frank and Sergio were great to work with because they were pleasant AND they were so very careful about everything they did. All in all, I give the ProTech team an A+!"

"I had a pipe burst and subsequent leakage into my basement. At first I thought that we maybe stopped it in time since we could not see obvious damage but Marshall at ProTech said it would be a good idea to check it out anyway and came out within a couple of days. I’m so glad he did since there was more damage than we anticipated. Marshall explained the damage thoroughly using his imaging techniques and provided a quote within the day. Pricing was good and our insurance accepted the proposal immediately. The ProTech team was able to do the water damage mitigation about a week after the incident and on a Saturday no less. Everything was done super quickly and professionally. While I do not want to deal with any more water damage, the repairs using ProTech were painless. I would recommend this company and especially Marshall to anyone in the same situation."
