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  Absolutely amazing! Highly recommended! I recently moved to Pennsylvania and purchased a fixer upper in Luzern County. I had a large pile of debris from the house that I needed to get rid of. I called A+ Junk Removal and spoke with Sal. He was extremely professional and very personable. He was able to work with my schedule which was greatly appreciated. Sal also contacted me through text to remind me of my scheduled appointment. Joe and Andrew showed up on time to give me an estimate for my junk pile. They gave me a great price and got right to work. Both Joe and Andrew were very polite and extremely professional. Very friendly as well. They did an amazing job! I couldn’t have asked for a better crew to come and do this job for me. I am extremely appreciative for Sal, Joe and Andrew. I highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again on the future. Thank you so much A+ Enterprises!

    • 5 star review  I was looking for someone to haul away some things from a home remodeling project. I called A Plus and within 10 minutes I received an email and was able to call the owner right away. He sent his crew out the next day and took care of my hauling needs with a great price. I cannot tell you how pleased I am at the prompt, courteous service I received from both the owner and the crew. I highly recommend them. Mary Gadomski

      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  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.
