Are you in the middle of a foreclosure cleanup nightmare? Let’s be real. Foreclosure forces occupants out of a property, usually in a last-minute rush. Broken items, vandalized rooms, and properties soiled with dirt are all very common foreclosure cleaning problems. And sadly, this is just the tip of the iceberg. In other words, cleaning up foreclosure homes (and cleaning foreclosures in general) without the help of foreclosure cleaning companies can be a drag.
If you decide to DIY it, you’re going to need to haul heavy items out of the home and sanitize the property. On top of that, you will also have to make sure that you don’t damage the building in the process. In short, we’re talking about a virtual nightmare for realtors, banks, and investors.

A Foreclosure Cleanup Company You Can Trust
As of January 2013, 1.5 million homes were in the foreclosure process or under the ownership of banks or a federal agency. Additionally, 1.8 million homeowners were delinquent by at least sixty days on their mortgages. Although the housing market has shown more recent signs of recovery, these numbers continue to remain high.
Two decades ago, banks generally took care of foreclosed and abandoned properties themselves. However, as the mortgage industry spiked, lenders began parceling out the work to a handful of large field services companies. In turn, these companies built out networks of subcontractors in states across the country.
Now, with both oversight and pay at a minimum, conditions are ripe for those willing to commit fraud and cut corners. In the best-case scenario, you will be charged for work done poorly, or not done at all. On the other hand, in the worst-case scenario, you might have a lawsuit on your hands, as the industry of cleaning up foreclosure homes is notorious for recklessness.
One example of such recklessness was the tribulations of a widowed woman named Marie Osborne, according to the Huffington Post. The bank had mistakenly labeled her house as foreclosed. However, it was not, but a foreclosure cleanup crew arrived anyway. Although a cursory review would have suggested to anyone that this house wasn’t abandoned, that wasn’t the case here. As a consequence, Osborne was surprised to discover someone had padlocked her doors and ransacked her belongings when she got home. What’s more, someone stole several expensive items – a grandfather clock, an antique gold mirror, and several televisions.
