Step-By-Step Free House Cleanout Guide

Step 1: Organize Your Items

The first step in the cleanout process is to organize what you are keeping, what is trash, and what is valuable. This is the most time-consuming process, but it helps make your cleanout go more smoothly.

For example, bag up unwanted items into trash bags. For items you are keeping, move them into a storage unit or POD. There will most likely be items that you do not wish to keep but aren’t trash such as furniture, appliances, etc. You can keep these items in-place, but be sure to remove them of trash. Cleaning the items goes a long way as well.

Step 2: Find a Service

There are individuals who will clean out an entire house including the garbage just to keep some valuable items. For example, if you have 100 garbage bags worth of trash, but some bedroom sets, these individuals may take the job on. Beware though, most companies that offer “free” cleanouts are not licensed or insured.

If you decide to hire a free cleanout service, be sure to get references and make sure they dispose of your trash items properly. Many free services illegally dump trash in order to save money.

Step 3: Clean Out the House

Now that you have all your items separated and a company lined up to clean out the house, it’s time to start!

The cleanout process will take about 1-2 days for most small liquidation services. The time taken depends on the amount of employees and the trucks hauling your items away.

The entire process from separating your items, to bagging trash, to cleaning out the house takes approximately 1 week. We recommend taking a week off from work to expedite this process. The benefit is your cleanout should cost little to no money if you manage it yourself.

A Better Option

If you don’t have a week to clean out your house, a better option would be to hire a professional cleanout service.

Most reputable cleanout companies such as A+ Enterprises charge for their services. The reason we charge and some do not is because we donate your items instead of selling them. We have a large crew & fleet of trucks arrive to clean out your house. A weeklong cleanout process can be reduced to as little as 2 hours for a company like ours.

Essentially, you pay for the convenience of having a hands-off cleanout process, as well as having your goods donated to the less fortunate. We are fully licensed & insured and have 60+ 5 star reviews. We travel throughout all of Pennsylvania for estate & property cleanouts, and offer same-day service.

  • 5 star review  Fantastic customer service. Sal was on time, very responsive to messages and professional. The price for the dumpster was very reasonable also. I have had issues with other junk removal companies in the past and wish I had found them sooner. I will definitely use them again in the future.

During the scheduling the staff was very helpful and were able to work with my last minute call with no issues. I received a reminder of my appointment witch was very helpful. The team that arrived to the job took care of business before I knew it it was all done. Very respectful and hard working team. Will definitely recommend anyone and will definitely use this company on my next project.

  • 5 star review  EXTREMELY PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL! Gave them a call to remove some old furniture and assorted boxes of junk. They said the had a crew in my area the next morning and could be here at 9am. Arrived right at 9 on the dot and got straight to work. They battled through all my cobwebs and work quick and efficiently. No trouble or damage from moving some big items in narrow areas. The price they quoted was great value for all the work they did. I have already and will continue to HIGHLY recommend them.

    5 star review  Top notch. I called and spoke with a Guy named Sal. Very friendly and excellent Customer Service, 100%. I was set up in minutes. The pricing was great. Delivered it next day. When it was time for pick up I advised that I would be working and not able to hear the door so just knock hard. I went out on my Lunch break wondering what the heck? And the Dumpster was gone. Great service. Great Price. I called about 6 Dumpster Rental places and of all of them, A+ Was definitely the best and Props to Sal. Great Service. Truly is A+
