Selling, moving out of, or simply decluttering a whole house can be a messy process. Whole house clean out services cover the removal of furniture, clothing that has been left behind, taking out kitchen appliances and dinnerware, a basement clean out and/or attic, plus a garage if needed. These services, depending upon the state of the house, can be provided by anywhere from a pair of workers up to a team of six, seven or eight workers. Servicers break into teams and each of these groups works in unison to clean out sections of the house.
Oftentimes a whole house clean out service begins with the removal of loose items. Servicers do this so that they do not need to worry about stepping upon these items as they move through the house. This also enables the servicers to carry the larger items with greater ease, for they will have been emptied and weigh less. If a clean out servicer determines some piece of furniture or item has value, they may attempt to resell it, which should cut into the pricing of the job.
In order to prepare for a whole house clean out service, you must determine what will be left behind, and what will be taken. The more precisely and definitely these decisions are made, the more efficient your provider of the whole house clean out service will be. This is not to say that you cannot change your mind about items, on the contrary, most providers will accommodate your shifting feelings (after all, a whole house is bound to have some sentimental articles). If you are looking to sell a house that is full of somebody else’s belongings, then this aspect of the whole house clean out servicing is that much easier.
The knowledge gained from experiencing several whole house clean outs is something which you may not notice, but will most assuredly appreciate. While an inexperienced team puts your valuables and property at risk of damage, the skilled, experienced team understands the value of taking care of these things.
