Foreclosure Eviction Cleanup – Steps to Take

Cleaning up after a foreclosure or eviction can be an overwhelming task. The key to success lies in having a well-organized plan to deal with the junk, waste, or damage left behind. 


We think you’ll agree—real estate agents, property owners and homeowners need a quick turnaround to restore the property to a livable condition.


If you’re just starting the foreclosure/eviction process, or you’ve begun cleaning up after a previous resident, you’ve got a long road ahead of you.


But we’re here to make your job a whole lot easier. Keep reading to learn more about effective foreclosure cleanup, and why EnviroDispose is OKC’s go-to partner for property cleanup projects.


Not Every Cleanup is Cut and Dry

Clean-ups of residential or commercial buildings often involve safety risks and/or hazardous materials.


So, it’s crucial to identify and handle hazardous materials properly to ensure a safe cleanup process (for you and our team members alike).

Common hazardous materials include:


  • Asbestos: Common in pre-1980 house construction materials.
  • Appliances: Including freezers, refrigerators, or any type of appliance containing refrigerants.
  • Lead Paint: Likely present in houses built before 1978.
  • Chemicals: Includes ammonia, auto-fluids, insecticides, propane, solvents, etc.
  • Car Parts: Certain materials such as batteries, tires, and automotive fluids.

These materials (and a few others) are never allowed in our dumpsters, as they pose a risk to you, our team, and the environment. For a full list of hazardous materials, click here!


Planning and Timing

Consider the urgency and budget for the cleanup. Hiring a junk removal can help alleviate the burden of home cleanouts, but are generally more expensive. 


On the other hand, renting a dumpster provides a more cost-effective option, particularly if you’re not on a time crunch.


Create a Proposal

A well-developed plan is crucial for getting a foreclosure/eviction cleanout completed on time and on budget.


Before you rent a dumpster or begin the process, there are a few key points you’ll need to consider… 


Estimate Your Property Size: Identify the square footage of the property. Determine if there’s enough space for a dumpster or if a junk removal vehicle can access the premises efficiently.
Understand the Types of Junk or Debris: Determine whether you are dealing with household junk, bulky items, hazardous materials, or demolition waste.
Sort Out Prohibited Waste: Be sure to call hazardous waste specialists and/or sort out prohibited waste to ensure none of it goes into your dumpster.
Decide the Best Approach: Choose between hiring a junk removal service, renting a dumpster, or a combination of both.
