4 key reasons for house cleanout services
Too much clutter can be an eyesore, but it can also pose a hazard in your home. People have all sorts of valid reasons to de-clutter their homes, which include:
- Moving away: whether you’re moving to another address in the same city or you’re moving out of state altogether, there may be a lot of unwanted junk that you simply can’t take with you. Leave the heavy lifting to our junk removal experts and make your move smoother and stress-free.
- Spring cleaning: when was the last time you fully cleaned out your home? Whether you’re simply trying to freshen the air by getting rid of dusty old boxes of unwanted clutter or you want to get into a good habit of keeping your home tidy, junk removal is one of the best ways to freshen up your living spaces.
- Remodelling & renovations: if you’re building an addition or renovating a bathroom or kitchen, you’ll certainly have lots of building waste to get rid of. You may also want to use the opportunity to get rid of fixtures like old toilets or an old sink or countertop vanity. Junk haulers can help clear up all of the building and demolition debris from remodelling projects and renovations in your home.
- Rental property cleanouts: do you own a rental property? Whether you’re renting out a house or apartment, one of the most stressful times a landlord can experience is having to clean out clutter from a previous tenant so that the property is clean and presentable for any future tenants. Junk haulers can help clean out entire rental properties, including hoarder and eviction cleanouts.
What house cleanout services are available?
House cleanout services are broad in scope, but generally they include either full estate cleanouts of bulky items and household rubbish, room cleanouts such as garages, attics, basements or rental units, or bulky item removal that you've had cluttering up your garage for far too long.
Here are some examples of house cleanout tasks our member partners can assist with:
Full house cleanout
It's amazing how much stuff we can accumulate in the span of six months, so just imagine how much we accumulate over years in our homes.
Full house cleanout services involve the complete removal of all junk, rubbish, and waste from your house so that it looks just like new.
This can be ideal prior to demolition work, foreclosures, after a natural disaster, reselling the home to a new buyer, or clearing out the estate of a deceased relative, for example.
Partial estate cleanout
Perhaps your basement or attic is so full that you can no longer see the floor, or your garage is so jam-packed you can't even park your car inside anymore.
Whatever the case, whichever room in your house needs cleaning out, our members are up to the task.
Partial estate cleanout services include the cleanout of specific rooms, such as the garage, attic, basement, rental units, home offices, kitchens, bathrooms, and more.
These services are an excellent way to de-clutter the home, to prepare for renovations or remodelling, or to prepare a room for re-use (new baby room, for example).
Bulky waste removal
Got a rotten old mattress sitting around the house that you just want tossed out?
Big items like refrigerators, television sets, ovens, and mattresses need to be properly disposed of, so if you've got bulky items you need gone straight away, our junk removal teams can come by and haul them away.
Other bulky items that require proper removal include sofas, armchairs, wardrobes, tables and chairs, and garden gazebos, trampolines, paving slabs, and large tree branches, to name a few.
Type of household junk we pick up
Our local junk haulers can pick up just about any type of junk from your residential property.
Whether you need to get rid of an old mattress or you need an entire home or apartment cleaned out, a nearby junk removal expert is just a quick call away when you use JunkGator.
Some of the common household items our junk haulers can pick up and haul away include:
Sheds | Tables & chairs | Couches & sofas | Carpets | Hot tubs & spas | Pianos | Beds & mattresses | Dressers & wardrobes | Patio furniture | Kitchen cabinets | Kitchen appliances | Bathtubs & toilets | Sauna & steam room | Refrigerators | Trampolines | Pool tables | Christmas trees | Construction debris | Washing machine & dryer | Trash & garbage | Tires & wheels | Baby equipment | Tools | Waste | Computers & printers | Televisions | Bicycles | Stoves & ovens | Scrap metal | Dishwashers | Office furniture
How to prepare for a house cleanout
Act early and plan accordingly
Sometimes, you've got plenty of time to organize a house cleanout and can find a reputable junk hauler on JunkGator whenever it suits you best.
Oftentimes, however, time isn't on your side.
Foreclosures or natural disasters, for example, can put you on a pretty short fuse to find a quick and cheap house cleanout team as soon as possible.
While our house cleanout members can get the job done quickly and at a reasonable price, they do need time because safety is their priority.
Moreover, big house cleanout jobs can take up to a full day, depending on how much needs to be hauled off and the size of the van.
If you want to reduce the stress and hassle of clearing your house, it's best to get in touch with a house cleanout team on JunkGator early and to communicate with them about how much junk you've got so that they can give you a realistic estimate of how long it'll take.
Remove any high-value items
Often when dealing with estate cleanouts (particularly bereavement), there may be objects of significant monetary value.
Heirlooms and antique furniture, for example, can be appraised by an expert beforehand so that you can hold onto them and sell them for a (potentially) hefty profit.
You don't have to be on the next episode of the Antiques Roadshow, but just having an antique shop owner come by and evaluate the ‘junk' can yield some interesting surprises.
Some items to consider holding onto include jewelry, antique furniture, vases, sculptures and artwork. Also, hold onto anything that looks like it has sentimental value.
An old teddy bear, for example, could make a wonderful heirloom for grandchildren to inherit.
Shred any sensitive documents
A big source of identity theft in the USA comes from accessing letters and documents carelessly tossed away into recycling bins or litter baskets.
If it's got your name, credit card number, or other personally identifiable information on it, shred it securely before having it hauled away.
When you need quick, safe, and cheap house cleanout services near you, look no further than JunkGator.

The house cleanout process
Our junk removal partners will come to your property at the appointed time and date.
Point out to them all of the junk that needs to be removed.
They’ll organize all of the junk that needs to be removed and sort it according to where they intend to dispose of it.
Leave the hustle and muscle to our vetted and approved junk removal partners.
They’ll safely and efficiently remove any unwanted junk from your property and load it into a specially-adapted junk removal vehicle, i.e. a trailer.
If any junk needs to be dismantled, such as a hot tub or a shed, they’ll take it apart before loading it into the trailer.
Once all of the junk is loaded onto the trailer (or the trailer is full and more trips need to be made), our junk removal experts will haul it off to the appropriate facility for processing.
From the customer’s point of view, all junk is out of sight and out of mind.
From the junk hauler’s perspective, they’ll need to optimize their route to minimize landfill waste.
All unwanted junk is either sent to a donation center, recycling facility, or if no other options remain, to the landfill.
By minimizing landfill waste, junk haulers keep their operating costs low and competitive.
This also has the benefit of lessening the environmental impact of waste while also enabling the junk hauler to offer you better quotes than many competitors can.
Frequently asked questions about house cleanouts
How do I get rid of junk in my house?
There are many ways to get rid of junk in your house.
You can try to sell unwanted junk at a garage sale and give away junk to friends or family members if they have a use for it.
You can also try to donate junk to a charity to help out someone in need.
If you still cannot get rid of unwanted junk in your house or if you simply want it gone quickly, your best bet is to hire a local junk hauler.
How long does a house cleanout take?
It really depends. Cleaning out all unwanted junk from a single room can take a few hours to the better part of a day, depending on the size of the room and how much junk needs to be removed.
A full house cleanout can take a full day or longer.
For substantial amounts of junk, it’s best to communicate clearly with a local junk hauler so that they can acquire the manpower needed to clear out the whole house efficiently.
How much does a house cleanout cost?
On average, the cost of cleaning out a house in the United States can vary from around $200 to $700 or more.
The cost will vary significantly depending on how much junk needs to be removed, how many trips it will take, and how much labor is required to get the job done.
Large homes filled with unwanted junk, such as a hoarder’s property, can take far longer and cost more to clean out than a few items in a single room, for example.
Will junk haulers clean my property after removing unwanted junk?
It depends on the junk hauling business, but many independent junk haulers will follow up the house cleanout with a thorough cleaning.
This may include sweeping away debris, wiping down walls and windows, or cleaning carpets, for example.
Inquire with your local junk hauler about cleaning services beforehand so you know whether or not you need to hire a separate cleaning agency or do the job yourself.
What is an estate cleanout?
An estate cleanout is a type of property cleanout that is often required when one wants to either downsize or otherwise de-clutter their property, but it is also common whenever someone passes away and their property needs to be cleaned out.
Depending on the circumstances, an estate cleanout may be requested by the estate or property owner.
Is it worth de-cluttering your home?
Yes! A clean, tidy and clutter-free home has many positive effects, some obvious, some less so.
For starters, a clutter-free home reduces the spread of germs and bacteria that can fester around organic matter.
It also reduces hazards for tripping and falling, such as bulky boxes obstructing your home.
It also has many positive effects on mental health and productivity, so “clean up your room, bucko” and get rid of unwanted junk with the help of a local junk hauler.
