Image editing. Need advice on how to isolate an object from the background, and apply a consistent white background for a batch of product shots.

I've been asked to photograph a household inventory. Furniture, clothing, vases -- all in a cluttered space. Client wants the images edited to remove the clutter around the sofa, vase, etc. Needs a consistent white background on all the images. Client wants the images to look like this web site.
When I take the photos, I plan to bring white sheets and a neutral grey board to place behind some of the the objects But I will still need to select out the object and make consistent white backgrounds.
Is there an efficient way I can edit the images myself? Other than painstakingly clicking a selection path?
Do you have experience with a reliable service company that can edit the whole batch of images?
My software: Photoshop Elements, gimp, picasa.
