Here are your options…
Clean It Yourself — This is definitely the most time-intensive option. But if you love the property and don’t have the budget to pay for cleaning services, then you’ll have to put in some of your own elbow grease. Set aside a weekend to clean up as much as possible, invite friends and family to help (ask them to bring their trucks), assign some people to load the trucks and others to take trash to the local dump, buy pizza for everyone who helped, and it’ll probably be surprising how much can get done in a day. Do it again and again until all the trash is gone.
Hire a Cleaning Service — If there’s more money available than time and the plan is to keep the property, then consider hiring a professional cleaning service. Just go to homeadvisor.com/cost/cleaning-services/ and type in the property’s zip code to get estimates. They will bring their own trucks and leave your property trash-free. The average cost is $50 to $90 per hour.
