Deleting a Duplicate business that wont disappear from the map.

I have a duplicate of my business appearing on google maps. I claim it then delete it. It disapears off of the dashboard, but still appears on the map. I have re-claimed it and deleted it atleast half a dozen times. Does it just take time to disappear? Annoyingly it appears above my actual verified listing.

Are both in your control panel for Google My Business page?  Is one a service area listing the other listing has just a partial address. Can you be on the one you want to keep by listing the correct link and verifying it is the one to stay. The other issue is your site lists a P. O. box as your company address. This is outside of the terms of being listed on google maps. They want to list companies that accept visitors at their location at set hours. Or service area companies like yours but have to be listed as service area companies.
