When readers find this blog through a search engine, I’m able to see the terms they typed into the search engine to find us. Frequently, these search terms represent users with specific questions and I’ll like to take a bit of time to answer the most commonly searched questions now.

How do you clean a hoarder’s house?

If you need more information on cleaning a hoarder’s house, visit our blog post “How to Clean a Hoarder’s House.” There we provide a step by step guide to safely cleaning a hoard as well as tips and tricks to make the cleaning easier emotionally for the hoarder.

How can you tell if a junk removal company is a scam?

For more in-depth information about junk removal scams, we’we’ve written this hubpage “Austin Junk Hauling: How to Avoid the Most Common Scams.” In essence, if a junk hauling company offers a too-good-to-be-true price or doesn’t have insurance, it’s a scam. Not having any online reviews, refusing to answer questions, giving off the vibe of unprofessionalism (Ex: showing up in an unmarked truck, not having business cards, etc.) or not having a website should also be considered red flags.

Why do people live in squalor and how do you help them?

We’We’ve written before about Squalor Syndrome and how it’s different than hoarding disorder. (Check out that blog post here.) The bottom line is squalor syndrome is a mental illness and treating it will require professional help. People who suffer from squalor syndrome will need intensive therapy from a professional therapist who specializes in the disorder.  It’s not enough to simply clean out their homes. In fact, you probably won’t be able to begin cleaning out their home until they have progressed in therapy and even then, you’ll need a professional junk hauling company’s help.

Has the show Hoarders been cancelled?

The show Hoarders has not been cancelled.

How can I use junk and/or trash for décor? Do you have upcycling ideas?

We love to share ideas for using old junk and trash as new décor! We frequently share upcycling ideas on our Tumblr and Pinterest accounts.

How much does junk removal cost?

Most junk removal companies charge you by the truckload. You can usually pay for a ¼ of a truck, a ½ of a truck or a full truck. Here at Dirty Work, we like to ask our clients to send us a picture of the work they need done. This allows us to estimate how much room the junk will take up in our trucks and give them the most accurate estimate possible. If you’re unsure how much room your junk will take up, send a picture to your junk removal contractor and ask them to do the estimate.

These are the most common questions we see people looking for the answers to, but they are by no means all of them. If you need a different junk hauling question answered, find us on Facebook or Twitter. We’ll get back to you within a day.
