Cleanout service is slightly different from cleanup service because there are no habitants in the home or property.  Therefore, when no habitants or public are present, the risk of harm is reduced.  For example, in a cleanup where habitants or public is present a contractor prevent dust, fumes and airborne materials from harming others.
