How to Remove My House From Google Maps

Google Maps is a feature provided by Google that allows you to find locations on a virtual map. When you search for a specific address you can use the Street View feature to view an aerial picture of the specific location and surrounding area. If you find your house on the Google Maps Street View, there is a simple process to remove it so it will no longer be visible to the public.
