Default Totally wiping storage

Ok When I switch ROM's I notice I have alot of files and folders left over from previous ROMS. Is there a way to completely wipe the internal Storage and install a custom ROM from my micro SD Card?

I believe that custom recovery like CWM or PhilZTouch can do a full wipe.

In recovery, go to mounts and storage, and select format /data AND format /data/media (/sdcard).
