Pool deck demolition and removal |
Is your backyard pool more of an eyesore than a summer hangout? Let our crew make it disappear.

Call on Junk Relief To Make Your Pool Disappear

We see this all too often: The family pool has gone unused for years and is becoming an eyesore, or you just moved into that new house and have no desire to maintain the backyard swimming pool.

As much as we wish we could just load your old pool into our truck and drive off, it’s not quite that simple. Swimming pool demolition and removal needs to be done in a smart, safe, and efficient way before being removed in pieces.

Our crew of Junk Removal Specialists have many pool removal projects under their belts. They can efficiently and safely demolish and remove the pool and pool deck so you can find new ways to enjoy your backyard.

I have used them on many occasions for standard hauling, and they are always quick, careful and clean. We recently used them to demo an old above-ground pool and large deck. Over the course of a day and a half, they were able to do the job by hand, which allowed us to keep our hedges intact. Other bids all required the use of machinery. Sergio, Mack, Noe, Troy, Elias and Martin did a phenomenal job! – Amy R.

How Pool Removal Works:

When you work with us on your pool removal we use our experience to get your back yard refreshed fast!  Text us photos of your old pool, and we can offer a guaranteed quote – For a quicker removal, we prefer it’s already drained, but we can help with draining if needed. We are all over Chicago and the surrounding suburbs daily, and most of the time we can offer next day removals if you’re on a deadline! Just reach out, and our team of Junk Experts will do the rest – scheduling an arrival window that works for you and gathering the information so we can make your removal project as easy as possible.

On the day of removal, our crew will text you when they’re 30 minutes out from your property, and we will be sure to keep you in the loop if there are any delays due to traffic. When the crew clears a pool, we will dismantle the pool and deck to safely haul it away.  During the removal, we take care to watch out for your other backyard structures or deck you would like to maintain.

We will only take payment once you approve of our removal work and the area is clear for landscaping or your next steps. Our team will have a tablet ready for credit cards, check, or cash. After that, really all that’s left to do is feel Junk Relief, and enjoy your new back yard!

Pool Removal: Before and After

This team was great!! Our backyard pool had to go – and while we may have been able to manage that teardown ourselves, it was removal of the giant deck surrounding it that we couldn’t handle. Sergio and Junior came out to assess the job and provide an estimate. We decided to go with JUNK Relief and I’m very glad we did. They showed up on time and began work immediately. Every member of the team was professional every step of the way. The fellows I spoke with were friendly and helpful. All refuse was removed from the premises, and our yard is clean and ready for new landscaping. These guys were great – all of them…I highly recommend their services. – Julie H.

If you still have questions, feel free to read the FAQs below specifically focused on pool removal jobs.

I am outside of the City of Chicago, do you service my zip code?

We remove pools all over Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. On a daily basis, we are out working in cities like Naperville, Barrington, and Wilmette. Feel free to Live Chat or call a Junk Expert, and they will gladly check your zip code to help you!

Do you handle inground pools?

No, we do not. Currently, due to the need for heavy excavation equipment, we limit our services to above ground pools, hot tubs, and spas.

My above ground pool has a deck built around it, can you remove both?

Yes we can! We will just need detailed photos of the deck, or we can provide a quick onsite estimate. Once we have enough information, we will provide a guaranteed quote for the project and schedule the removal. From there, you don’t have to worry about a thing. Our crew of Removal Specialists will get to work disassembling your deck and pool, and will leave everything as clean as possible when they’re finished. 

Does it need to be drained?

While we usually request that the pool is drained before we begin the removal, we can drain it for you for a small additional fee. 

What will my yard look like after the pool is removed?

Our team of Removal Specialists will work hard to break down and clear out your pool and/or deck as quickly and efficiently as possible, but we can’t completely control what the yard will look like after we’re done. While the pool won’t be there anymore, the yard will most likely reflect that it was. We will clean everything up to the best of our ability, but you will probably want to contact a landscaping contractor, or give your lawn your own TLC until it gets back to it’s former glory.
