Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to haul off junk?

The average cost to haul away junk is $150, though this price can be expected to vary between around $75 and $375, depending on several factors. 

The first factor is the quantity of junk removed. Most junk removal services charge by the truckload, and most residential projects only require filling up part of a truckload.

Another factor is the type of junk. E-waste like computers and TVs may cost more to dispose of, as will more hazardous materials like mercury, paint and used motor oil. It also may cost more to remove big items like beds and couches.

To find out how much it will cost to get rid of your junk, get free estimates from the best junk removal companies near you.

How do you prepare for junk removal?

To prepare for junk removal, start by listing all the items you should get rid of. Organize your list by which items are appropriate for the junk collection team and which may have some resale value or could be donated. 

Move through your house and hit problem spots like closets, attics and basements. Make a pile of items you plan to keep, give away, sell, donate and have the junk removers pick up. Finally, contact at least three junk removal companies for price quotes.

Do house cleaners offer remote or virtual services?

House cleaning is generally done in person, but some may be willing to offer remote services. If you find a house cleaner’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, contact the pro to talk about your options. 

If you’d rather hire a house cleaner to clean your home when the pandemic is over, you may be able to book an appointment at a later date. Start by comparing local house cleaners in your area side-by-side.

How do you throw away a couch?

You can get rid of a couch by hiring a junk removal pro who can get it safely out of your house and dispose of it. There are other options as well, including renting a trailer and hauling it to a proper disposal facility, or leaving it out for someone to pick up. 

However, a junk removal service is the easiest option. This keeps you from having to lift a heavy object or risk scuffing up your walls. Furthermore, a licensed junk removal service can responsibly dispose of a couch, saving you from having to find a site.

How can I get rid of junk fast?

To get rid of your junk fast, start by organizing and making a list of what you have. Sell what you can, and give away items that you value but you don’t want to friends and family. 

If you don’t have the means to transport items or if you have too much junk to get rid of on your own, it’s time to hire a pro. A junk removal service can quickly and efficiently get rid of junk for you, including lifting heavy objects and making sure nothing is damaged.

Do you tip junk removal guys?

You may want to tip your junk removal team if they did an exceptional job. For instance, if they show up on time, are courteous and professional, take extra care not to damage your possessions and home, and leave a clean site afterwards, you may feel like giving them a tip. A reasonable tip might be $20 per crew member.

It’s also nice to tip them on especially hot days, or when the weather is inclement. You can also provide food and drinks for them.

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

Impecable cleaning service!! My ex had trashed the place as he remained in the unit after I moved out and they came to the rescue! Not only were they able to make the accommodations last minute as I was up against a strict deadline, they also were in and out within a few hours giving me back the place in much better condition than I received it. They were very considerate, professional and thorough. I definitely recommend you hit them up for your home cleaning needs - they are lifesavers!

Overall, we were very pleased with the work the crew did. They were able to almost salvage carpets that we believed would most likely need to be replaced. We needed a move-out clean and they did a great job wiping down the base boards and sweeping behind the fridge. Appliances were sparkling and cabinets had been wiped down. The only two complaints we had was the oven did not appear to have been cleaned and we had hoped for a deeper clean in the bathroom. Overall, would 100% hire again. Worth the time and money!! Thanks so much!!!

I don't recommend this person because he canceled on me just an hour before the service time. I needed a move out cleaning because I had to return the house to his owner. I was desperate and needed the work to be done on time but this untrustworthy person bailed on me at the last moment. I had to clean the house by myself with my kids because we couldn't find anyone else to help us. I really regret contacting this person so please avoid him at all cost there are many other people who are trustworthy unlike him.

I made the right decision to hire Jack of All Trades to help clean out my storage unit. Adam showed up on time and quickly got to work helping sort, pack-up, and haul away more than 1/3 of the contents of my unit in about two hours. He exceeded my expectations, and I will not hesitate to request Adam’s assistance again, if needed.

The sisters arrived in the timeframe provided and did a fantastic job cleaning my house for move out. I couldn’t believe how great the house looked when they were done. It looked MUCH better than it did when I moved in. They were efficient, economical and friendly. I’ll definitely call them when I move again and will use on a regular basis when I can! Great job and I highly recommend them!

There aren’t enough words to express my appreciation and happiness after Patty and her team were finished. From the first conversation, until the end of cleaning, a total pleasure. I had one room that was a bit out of the ordinary. There were no extra fees and no negative comments. She even fit me in next day, first thing in the morning. The entire place was beyond sparkling and smelled so good. Throughout, I even got text messages if there was a question! Sooooooooo impressed! Definitely a PRO worth hiring!!! Best prices in town, and talented, kind, honest ladies! Very lucky to find AKD!
