The trauma of watching a home or a business suffer a fire is a helpless feeling that creates several crucial questions that arise all at the same time: Will everyone get out safely? How much will be destroyed? Will valuable records or property be lost? How soon can you figure out what to do next? What will it cost to recover and what, if any of it is covered by insurance?

Every fire and the resulting damage is different, but immediate action is necessary if you’re hoping to have the best outcome and benefit from fire damage restoration. It’s almost as if the steps taken to put out the fire caused more damage than the fire itself.

Hoarder Cleanup is More Than Clearing Clutter in Cloquet, MN

August 10th, 2017 · No Comments

The first thing that gets most people’s attention when it comes to hoarder cleanup is the mess. Whether it’s an excessive number of things, trash, or even animals – it’s usually not an orderly scene, whether you find it in Cloquet, MN, or other parts of the Northland.

There are also personal and potential hazard factors to worry about as you plan to take care of a hoarding problem for a friend or maybe even a family member.

Hoarding is usually connected to mental health issues. Often it has to do with an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. It’s possible the person doing the hoarding is unable to part with their items. You may need to seek professional counseling for them before they can begin to sort through their belongings and emotional issues.

Some cleanups can be dangerous to you and others as well.  Depending on the mess, you could be exposed to biohazards like staph and other viruses. Personal protection should come first when considering whether to tackle this sort of job.

Maybe adhesives used for the project are sticking to things they shouldn’t. You could also discover debris where there simply shouldn’t be or some basic floor cleaning or vacuuming that needs to be done.

The folks at ServiceMaster Superior Duluth Cloquet understand why you might not be all that eager to tackle a post-renovation cleaning chore and might be more interested in just enjoying a cabin or some other seasonal space instead.

When Clutter Leads to Hoarder Cleanup in Superior, WI

June 28th, 2017 · No Comments

Things can get out of control when it comes to collecting certain items and neglecting to clean on a regular basis. What some might consider to be clutter, could also be classified as hoarding to another. As a result, you might need some help with hoarder cleanup in Superior, WI.

Superior is far from alone when it comes to the problem of hoarding. From the compulsive collecting of common objects like newspapers, to something far more serious like pets and other animals, hoarding is happening in just about every community you can think of. It maybe happening at a home not far away from where you live.

The hard part is recognizing the problem and convincing the hoarder that cleanup is a good idea, and that you’ll be as respectful as possible when it comes to how you handle their valuables.

There are also some safety considerations that need to be kept in mind and may not really matter to the hoarder—no matter how serious the danger. For example, large amounts of trash are a fire hazard. It’s also not very good if firefighters have to struggle through piles of clutter to reach rooms inside of a home to douse a fire or reach a person with a medical emergency. All that extra stuff in the home can also attract mice and bugs or make it hard to clean up after any pets. The cumulative impact is an unhealthy home that could pose hazards to the homeowner and to neighbors alike.

ServiceMaster Superior Duluth Cloquet understands that hoarder cleanup isn’t just a matter of tossing a bunch of things into a dumpster, and then cleaning and sanitizing a home; it’s also about making a connection with the hoarder and those who love them. Many times it’s better to talk things out with the hoarder, write down their goals and tasks to complete, and concentrate on finding a proper “home” for their valuables.

The pros at ServiceMaster can explain further and offer solid suggestions on how you can begin to tackle what might seem like an impossible job.

Whether your challenges range from hoarder cleanup to disaster duty, ServiceMaster Superior Duluth Cloquet is your easy, experienced, and cost-effective solution. Contact us 24/7, at (888)-393-4334 to discuss your job, and to get the clean you expect and the service you deserve.

If winter is the season of leaky pipes and creaky roofs, then maybe it’s correct to say summer is the season of water damage restoration in Superior, WI.

That’s a lot of misery and a large amount of water damage restoration work in the Twin Ports area. With some of the punishing showers falling in many parts of the country this year, it doesn’t take long for soils to become saturated and very dangerous.
