5 Tips for hiring a Hoarding Cleanup Company

By Paul | Uncategorized



A good company will rely on their knowledge, experience and customer service to attract and book new clients. However, on the other side of the coin, you will have companies who will try underhanded tactics to book a job. It is unfortunate, but we have seen it happen, to the great dissatisfaction of the client. This goes for any industry.


This is not to say that “everyone is bad except us.” To the contrary, there are certainly a number of good companies out there. We have simply provided some tips and things to watch out for when seeking a company to provide hoarding clean-up services, so that you are not taken advantage of and that you get the best service we’re sure you want.


1) Some companies will “low-ball” hoarding estimates. They may tell you it will take 3 days at $X. Initially, this seems like a good deal until they begin work and tell you something along the lines of “it’s worse than we thought. It’s going to take us longer and will cost you more money.” Any hoarding clean up company worth its salt should be able to determine fairly closely, if not exactly, how long a hoarding clean out will take and how much it’s going to cost. Get an exact price and make sure they are going to stick to that price.


2) Another tactic some companies will try this: They bring a big truck or dumpster and tell you it will cost $X per truck load (or dumpster). Again, this may seem like a low price until you find out – when it’s too late to decline – that it took 15 truck loads to complete the hoarding clean-out. Again, get an exact price and ensure they will stick to it.


3) Beware of companies that tell you “this is a Stage X hoarding situation,” or somehow try to classify your situation. A true hoarding cleanout company has no business classifying anyone or any hoarding situation, and honestly shouldn’t even care. They’re there to tell you if they can do the job and how much it will cost. They may compare it to other jobs they’ve dealt with, which is fine, but they are most likely not licensed psychologists and so have no right diagnosing or classifying anyone. If they do try this, chances are they are just trying to impress you with fancy lingo.


4) Every hoarding situation is different. There may be a number of similarities between hoarding scenes, but the circumstances are different, and almost every client’s needs and wants are different. A good hoarding cleaning company will find out what you want done and adjust their scope of work accordingly. Steer clear of companies who tell you what needs to be done as they may just be adding additional and needless work at a greater cost to you. You may want to ask their opinion of what needs to be done and their take on it may be spot on, but watch out for those who enforce their opinions on you.


5) Some people request references before hiring a hoarding cleaning company. This is perfectly normal and is advisable in any situation where you are not sure of a company. Any experienced hoarding cleaning company should have a supply of references easily accessible.


Usa Trash Removal not only provides the above guidelines, but also, as you would expect, follows them. Our estimates are always an exact price and on a “Not-to-Exceed” basis. We realize that hoarding can be a sensitive situation not only for the hoarder, but also for any family or friends that may be dealing with it and, as each hoarding situation is different, we tailor each of our estimates according to each individual client’s needs.


We are available for and encourage any questions you may have regarding our services or hoarding cleaning services in general. Call us today.

Hoarder Clean Up

By Paul | Uncategorized


Hoarder Property Cleanup

USA Trash Removal provides a professional hoarder property cleanup, junk removal & disposal service for both commercial & domestic customers throughout the South Florida area.

Hoarding is a mental illness known as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) which often unnoticed by the individual doing it – it can range from never throwing anything away, compulsively collecting certain items, or collecting animals in the same way as people collect souvenirs. Our compulsive hoarding clearance team fully understand the complexity of obsessive and compulsive hoarding and not only experienced, but fully trained and consider the sensitive nature of the problem and the needs of people who struggle with this condition.

No two hoarder properties or individuals are the same, and it not only affects the lives of the hoarder but often times a landlord, family member or property owner who may find they are left to deal with the situation which can be quite overwhelming. With this in mind, our hoarder property cleaning service is specifically tailored to the individual property and the amount of time we estimate the job will take us.

Hoarder Cleanup

USA Trash Removal deals with the cleanup, removal of Trash and debris and sanitisation from a hoarding property quickly and efficiently. Hoarder property clearance typically involves cleaning a building or residence that a reasonable person would find uninhabitable due to a combination of filth and debris from hoarding and any number of potential health risks from items such as fecal matter, drug paraphernalia, bodily fluids, excessive trash, expired food, odour, boxed items, mold, mildew, infestation by lice or other insects etc.

The task of cleaning hoarding properties can often be a challenging one and is often impossible for an individual untrained in this serious and debilitating condition. In severe cases of compulsive hoarding, the very fabric of the building may have been unduly affected and we often find that the piles of what a normal person classes as rubbish i.e piles of newspapers are the only thing holding ceilings up.

In addition, there are several legal requirements which need to be adhered to when locating and safely eliminating biohazards such as faeces, blood, body fluids and needlestick’s which can cause serious illnesses if adequate precautions are not taken when clearing a hoarder property as well as the legal implications involved in transporting certain types of bio-hazardous waste on the public highway.

You can be assured that USA Trash Removal have the wealth of experience, the professional training and use professional tools and chemicals to eliminate all potential hazards within a hoarding property.

The cleanup of a property that has been inhabited by somebody suffering from Compulsive Hoarding Syndrome should not be treated lightly, there is often much more than meets the eye underneath the piles of rubbish or accumulated junk some of which can pose a serious health risk to the person or persons carrying out the cleaning.

7 things you should know before Hiring a Junk Removal Company

By Paul | Uncategorized

Here are 7 things you should Know prior to hiring a Junk Removal Company.

Customer Service

A lot of people can use their gut when assessing the customer service they receive when first contacting a company. In addition to gauging your own feelings, you should also check for signs of their attention to its overall importance:

Is there more than one option for getting in touch with them?
Is their website up-to-date and informative?
Do they try to work around your schedule of availability?
All of these can point to a company that cares about providing their customers with the best service, and will be more likely to handle your junk removal project professionally.


It’s one thing to remove a few boxes or pieces of furniture — it’s another to demolish a pool or create an access road to a site in the wilderness to complete the junk removal job. While you may have a simple job at hand, it’s good to check the range of work the company is capable of. It’s a safe bet that with a wider range of available services, the company is a more substantial operation, and it can be comforting to know that if something unforeseen arises on the job, they will be able to handle it.


The trucks are the lifeblood of junk companies. Check to see what size of truck they operate and how many they have in their fleet. This can help you figure out if they are well-suited to your job and how many trips they would have to make to complete it, which figures into the next item—cost.


What’s true in most things is also true with in this industry—you get what you pay for. While you should never be overcharged for any project, you should also expect that any bargain basement prices in this industry are likely that way for a reason. If you know how much junk you have ( in cubic yardage ) you can get estimates and compare the rates of competing companies. If you are paying anything more than $40 per cubic yard please run away.

If a company doesn’t offer an estimate based on the cubic yardage of your junk, then that’s certainly a red flag. While prices are always finalized in person, a refusal to give you a fair estimate based on the volume of your material is not in line with industry standards. In addition, beware of any attempts to charge based entirely on variables you can’t control like time or manpower.


Even though they’re hauling tons and tons of junk, the trucks themselves shouldn’t be rusted out husks of metal. If you can get a view of their trucks online or elsewhere, then you might have a good indicator of how well they take care of their equipment or by extension, how well they run the operation. It’s not such a far leap to make.

And in addition to maintaining the trucks themselves, many good companies strive to clean up the workspace after the junk has been removed from the site. It’s good practice and adds to the professional service customers are paying for.

Insurance protection

This one almost goes without saying. If all happens according to plan, this detail should always remain conveniently invisible, but hiring a company that is not insured is inviting disaster. Make sure that your junk removal company is insured and carry on with the big job at hand, comforted by that essential knowledge.

Recycling policy

Contrary to the wishful thinking of many, once your junk is gone, it doesn’t actually evaporate. Check what the recycling practices are of the junk removal company you’re thinking of hiring. Many companies are able to coordinate with donation centers, scrappers, and recycling facilities so that every salvageable piece can be saved from the landfill. If not, then your junk problem just got passed onto the Earth.

Past jobs

Look to see if the company you’re considering has documented anything about past jobs that are similar to yours—case studies, before-and-after pics, blog posts. That way, you’ll get an inside look into the actual process they take for the specific project you have.

Testimonials should also be present either on the website or elsewhere online so you can get the closest thing available to a word-of-mouth endorsement. If there’s no sign of any of the above things, then that might give you pause.



Hopefully, this guide takes some of the confusion and mystery out of the selection process and gives you the information you need to get the job done easily and professionally. If ever in doubt, don’t be afraid to ask tough questions and refer back to this guide. And feel free to get in touch with us with any further questions you might have, too. Good luck with getting rid of that pesky junk!
