People and businesses are constantly on the move.
More than 12 percent of tenants in rental homes and apartments move annually. Unfortunately, there are no accurate figures for commercial tenants, but the common problem with all those vacated properties is that they cannot be leased again until the junk is removed and the property is cleaned.
And each day that rental property remains unoccupied is another day without revenue.
Are you a manager of a vacant property in Fairfax who needs to clear out junk left by the previous tenants? It’s one of the more frustrating aspects of property management, but a property that’s been vacated must be cleaned – and cleaned out – before it can be leased again.
Property Cleanouts – By the Numbers
It’s estimated that in the United States there are over 44,000,000 renter-occupied households, representing over one-third of the population. While many of these are single-family homes being rented, a vast majority of renter-occupied households are apartments.
In Fairfax County, for example, the total number of rental complex apartments and townhouses in January 2019 was over 81,50 units. That’s in a county with almost 1,150,000 residents. And, as of 2018, there were more than 31,150 businesses in the county, a large percentage of which operated in leased properties.
In the city of Fairfax, the population was estimated to be about 24,600 in 2021, of which, about 18,300 are over 18. While almost 85 percent of married couples represent homeowners, the overall level of homeownership in the city of Fairfax stands at about 70 percent. This means close to 30 percent of adults – or 5,500 residents – are potentially renters.
And one source listed just over 200 commercial properties for lease in the city of Fairfax, with over 1,200 commercial real estate properties available for lease or rent in Fairfax County, Virginia, including office spaces, retail, industrial buildings, and other types of commercial properties.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau almost 25 percent of tenants in renter-occupied housing units lived in a different location the year before. Their reasons for moving vary, but the main reason people relocate is a job transfer, which accounts for almost 10 percent of moves.
When Your Fairfax Rental Property Needs a Cleanout
As any landlord or property manager knows, cleaning out rental homes, condominiums, and apartments can be a tough task requiring physical strength and hard work. For example, if large, old furniture and other bulky items are left behind, someone often has to haul these heavy items down flights of stairs and through hallways.
And it is always an unfortunate situation when property managers must dispose of a former tenant’s abandoned possessions.
When a tenant must vacate because of legal reasons – evictions and so forth – it can be a stressful experience for everyone involved. Unfortunately, many tenants do not fully clean the properties before they relocate, especially if they are being evicted. This is often true for those tenants who break their leases and move out without notice.
Too many times, tenants simply move out and leave the burden of cleaning out and disposing of their “junk” on the landlord or property manager.
These same types of scenarios occur with rental homes, as well. And, while some larger property management firms have the resources required to effectively handle these property cleanout situations, most property managers end up spending far more time and money than they should just getting rid of the junk.
In some situations, they may be able to sell or auction off some of the items, but this is not as common of a practice as people might think. In most scenarios, abandoned items are simply treated as “junk” that the tenants didn’t want to bother taking with them and are disposed of.
Property rental professionals also work with short-term rental homes, vacation properties, duplexes, triplexes, and other types of leased properties. Like house and apartment renters, these tenants can also vacate rental units leaving large amounts of old furniture and other items that need to be cleaned out and properly disposed of.
And, like apartment managers and other landlords, commercial property managers can easily get overwhelmed with the work required for property cleanouts and junk hauling.

Another aspect of our great pricing is that we do not charge you by the weight of your load.
This is how many other firms in the junk removal industry work, but it’s a disadvantage for customers whose junk items are particularly heavy. In other words, a half-truckload of heavy furniture and old appliances would cost you far more than a half-truckload of old clothes and bedding, for example.
That’s not how we do things at Junk King. We only charge you for the amount of space your junk takes up in our truck. This means savings for you and simple, upfront pricing from us.
