Remove maps listing / or at least remove phone number and address

I've noticed that googling my business name brings up a listing which contains my home address and personal phone number which I now wish to remove from search results, can someone explain how to do this, the only options seem to be to change them to something else but I just want them removed (or the entire listing removed).

1- Do you have a business at that address that does business locally?

 

2- Do you mind sharing your business name?

 

3- If the business exists and you just want to hide your address because you do your work at your clients and not at the address you can verify the listing and then hide the address

4- If on the other hand your business does not service locals and it is virtual only you can contact support for their assistance in removing the listing. 

 

5- If you are no longer in business but were, they won't remove the listing, just close it.
