5 Myths About Junk Removal You Shouldn’t Buy Into

We’re approaching that dreaded time of the year again — spring cleaning. That’s right, for many homeowners, the time is soon approaching that you’ll take a deep dive into your home’s cleanliness, attacking it from every angle. Spring cleaning is often a comprehensive process which inspects the amount of clutter in your home, how clean it is overall, and if there are any restoration or renovation jobs that need to be performed.

Inevitably, this leads to many people deciding that it’s finally time to get rid of a bunch of their junk. Unfortunately, they quite often make this process needlessly complicated or expensive, when in reality, one of the easiest, and environmentally-friendly ways to declutter is to hire a junk removal company. But, there are so many myths and misconceptions about professional junk removal services that you may not even consider the option if you’re buying into them.

At Clean Pro, we offer junk removal services to the people of Gloucester, North Shore, Gloucester, Essex, and other regions near the greater Boston area. We know our stuff when it comes to junk removal, and that’s why we’re here to bust some of the more common myths.


One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and even if you’ve deemed a lot of your stuff to be “junk,” that doesn’t mean that you just want it to get thrown into the trash. Everything has value to the right person, so a lot of people hold off on calling junk removal companies, since they have the belief that they’re just glorified trashmen.

This couldn’t be further from the truth! Despite how weirdly pervasive this myth is, the opposite is actually true for most companies. Junk removal companies typically have solutions on how to dispose of items, and this doesn’t mean going straight to the trash. Many pieces are recycled, and a huge portion of a haul usually gets donated so that the items can be redispersed to people who might find better use for them.

If all you wanted to do was throw your stuff away, that’s easy enough to do by yourself! By calling a junk removal company, you’re ensuring that you can get rid of your stuff, with the added peace-of-mind that the company will have adequate solutions that don’t exclusively involve a dumpster.



We generally don’t like to discriminate when it comes to junk. At Clean Pro, our team of experts is committed to removing as much junk as possible from your property. However, it needs to be known that there are exceptions, and it’s worth asking the pros if they’re willing to take an item that you have doubts about.

Hazardous materials often fall under this definition. Every company has their own policies regarding hazardous or dangerous materials, so if you have something in your home that’s toxic, we encourage you to contact us directly to see if we can take it. We operate on a case-by-case basis in our junk removal company, so don’t be afraid to make special inquiries!


If this myth were true, we’d be out of business! We’ve provided our services to countless people in Gloucester, Manchester, and surrounding regions who aren’t living in lavish mansions and have modest day jobs just like anyone else. The bottom line is that everybody has junk, not just wealthy people! And that’s why we strive to make our services affordable.

The price of our services depends on what exactly is being removed. Naturally, more ambitious jobs have a higher quote, and this is especially true if it will require more ambitious equipment for difficult items such as grand pianos. However, with that being said, it’s sometimes more expensive to rent a dumpster than it is to call the professionals!

Many people are hesitant to hire professionals for tasks than can be done on a DIY basis, but it quite often ends up saving them money in the long run, whether they’re spending less directly, or getting better use out of the time they would have used to do the job themselves.


We’re thankful this one isn’t true! Like we’ve mentioned above, junk removal services often find a second life for your possessions through donations or other means, and if we only took people’s trash, we wouldn’t be doing the world a huge favor by donating it.

There are already professionals who exist to take your trash, and they usually stop by your house in their big truck once a week. While we are glad to get rid of any trash you might have on hand, junk removal is meant for anything you’re trying to get rid of!

People require junk removal for all kinds of different reasons. Sometimes they’ve just hoarded up too much stuff over the years. Sometimes it’s a result of downsizing, where their new property can’t accumulate all the stuff they have. Sometimes it’s a deliberate decision to distance themselves from material objects to pursue deeper meaning in their life. Whatever the reason is, most of these jobs have an enormous amount of normal, everyday items included in the mix.


This is somewhat of an irrational fear, but it’s also a very natural one. Some people deliberately avoid consulting with professionals for junk removal because they’re ashamed or embarrassed of the amount of junk they’ve accumulated in the first place. Hoarding is is a habit that has been highly stigmatized by the media, with shows like Hoarders showcasing how destructive it can be for one’s life.

While the overwhelming majority of people don’t have a hoarding problem as severe as the ones we see on TV, it’s still exceedingly uncommon for people to be embarrassed about their clutter collection.

"Thank you CleanPro. Getting my estimate to wax floors/carpets on a Holiday was a plus but now I don't have to clean my office (junk room). Found out clean pro helps with that, they have trailers and will help load up... I'm so thrilled CleanPro to my rescue..."

We are very happy with the services provided by CleanPro Gloucester. Their technician cleaned our rental unit after the tenant moved out and the space looks brand new! They were extremely thorough and efficient. And working with the administrative office to schedule and provide payment was easy.
