Cleaning out foreclosures can be an overwhelming job. Most foreclosed properties are deemed unsanitary since former occupants are usually forced out of their homes in the last minute and without getting ample notice beforehand. Many items are broken and rooms also show signs of vandalization with several being soiled with urine as well as feces.
Foreclosure properties are more often than not in a state of disrepair as previous owners have done little to no upkeep to the property. It’s also common to find huge piles of unwanted personal items, broken and neglected fixtures, broken appliances and other kinds of rubbish.
Unique Finds in a Foreclosure Property
When cleaning a foreclosed property, it is not surprising to see certain items that are left behind by previous owners. This can range from old couches, unwanted furniture, animal crates and even animal statues that stand up to 6-feet tall. You can also find huge amount of debris, boxes of files, old clothes, garbage, pet odor and hazardous waste.
What Happens In a Foreclosure Cleanout
In a foreclosure cleanout, all parts of the house are taken cared of which includes the garage, basement and attic. The whole place shall be cleared of all the junk and clutter including carpets and wallpaper. These items are then loaded up in a service truck and hauled away.

To ensure that no junk or rubbish was left behind, there should be a walk through in the entire property. Everything should be clean and free from animal and human odor.
