Love Your House

February has become synonymous with the season of love. This year, don’t forget to love your house! We spend every day in our homes, and often forget how much difference can be made in small changes. A little improvement here and there can make us feel refreshed in our most comfortable space. This February, Junk King Austin offers some tips for showing love to your house.

  • Quick Fixes – How often do we put off simple tasks simply because we can’t be bothered in the moment? Take an hour out of your weekend and take care of some of those quick fixes you’ve been avoiding – your house will thank you!
  • Wipe Down the Walls – Especially if you have pets or children, a quick wipe down of the walls can make your home feel brighter and cleaner. From spills to cooking splatter, our walls can collect more than we realize. Use a wet rag and gently wipe away forgotten messes.
  • Fresh Paint – A fresh coat of paint can make a big difference! Love your house by freshening up the paint on your door frames, mailbox, or baseboards. Even a small area will yield feelings of improvement.
  • Dust Hard to Reach Places – From light fixtures to high shelves, every home has hard to reach places. Unfortunately, the dust (and spiders!) seem to have far less trouble reaching those spaces. Clean away the cobwebs and remove the dust; you might be surprised how much a 10 minute cleaning job will change the feel of the room.
  • Upgrade the Linens – No one likes to use old towels or sheets worn thin from years of washing, yet we often don’t notice the passing of time on our own linens. Assess your towels and bedclothes. Is it time for an upgrade?
  • Replace the Bulbs – Do you have any burned out bulbs? Unless it’s the last bulb in the fixture or the prominent light in a room, it can be easy to ignore a burned out bulb. Light bulbs are an important part of the home. This quick fix will literally leave your home brighter!
  • Reassign Clutter-Catchers – We all have spots in our homes that seem to collect clutter. Sometimes it’s a desk or a portion of the kitchen counter. Love your house by stopping the clutter-catching cycle! Repurpose the clutter-catching space. If it’s a counter, turn it into a drink station. If it’s a desk, add a lamp or a set of in-boxes. Whatever the space, assess what else it could be used as. Redefining the area will help you resist the temptation to set things down there.
  • Ditch the Clutter – Did you know you don’t even have to remove your own clutter? Junk King can come to your house, storage shed, garden, or office space and will go through it with you – room by room – to remove the clutter. You don’t have to move a single box! Junk King Austin wants to help you love your house this year. Give us a call or book online to get rid of that unwanted clutter.

Clutter isn’t the only thing Junk King removes. We can remove anything – big or small – but hazardous waste. We can take apart decks, and haul away furniture or large appliances. We can take away construction waste, clean out garages or storage spaces, remove hot tubs, and even handle yard waste such as branches, fountains, or stone. Junk King Austin also recycles up to 80% of what we collect. Give us a call or book online today to get your free estimate.

Christmas Clean Up

Oh, the holiday season! This time of year is so bright and cheerful – and also a bit overwhelming, exhausting, and messy! With all of the parties, events, family time, and gifts, our homes can look like a magical war zone between Santa’s elves and the Keebler’s elves: full of baked goods and discarded bits of wrapping paper. It can be hard to know how to get back on track. Junk King Austin is all too familiar with this holiday haze. We recommend organizing a bit of a Christmas clean up.

To start, save the boxes! It seems logical to recycle them, but use them instead as a vehicle for decluttering. Commit to filling up every leftover box with items to get rid of, whether clothes, toys, or kitchen accessories. The boxes will also help you keep track of how many new things have entered your home – giving you a starting point for how many objects should leave!

Another, slower method is to get rid of 2 items for every new one you receive. This works well if you tally up areas of the house, such as 3 new items for the kitchen, 5 new clothing items, and 2 new DVDs. These would translate to getting rid of 6 kitchen items, 10 items from the wardrobe, and 3 DVD’s or electronics. This method helps ensure that no one area is suddenly bursting with newly acquired stocking stuffers.

Consider setting up a gift closet for duplicates you have received. Re-gifting can be a great way to save money next year and prevent items from being wasted. Just be sure to label who gave you the gifts so they don’t end up back with the original sender!

Avoid throwing all of your Christmas decorations back in the box. Instead, sort the items and inspect them. Are any of them out of date? Are some of them broken? Are there pieces you didn’t even use? Take the time to assess your decorations and prevent keeping unwanted objects for another Christmas season.

Junk King Austin is always ready to help simplify your life and get your home back in order. We remove items large and small, and will save you time (and your back!) that you could be spending relaxing over the holidays. Junk King services homes, offices buildings, and outdoor spaces, and will remove items large and small – including hard to remove items like hot tubs, decks, and large appliances.

Backyard Clean-Outs

Backyard clean-outs are a hallmark of autumn. As the leaves turn and the plant life quiets down in preparation of winter, it’s much easier to judge the state of your yard and make improvements. Junk King Austin has some tips to help you with your backyard clean-outs:

  • Prepare
    It is only frustrating to clear a Saturday for yard work only to discover that you don’t have gloves or a shovel. Take stock of your tools and make sure everyone has a pair of gloves and that there are plenty of trash bags, shears, rakes, and shovels.
  • Assess and Organize
    While you’re assessing your tools, take a cursory glance at the space you’ll be working in. What needs to happen for your backyard clean-out to be a success? Jot down a list to help you from feeling overwhelmed when it’s time to work.
  • Feed the Plants
    Plants need extra nutrients in the colder months. Help them along with some fertilizer.
  • Get Rid of the Excess
    If you have old outdoor furniture, an unwanted deck, or a broken hot tub, take the steps to have it removed. Call Junk King for a free estimate and we will do all the work for you – and even clean up after ourselves when we are done. We are experienced with hot tub removals, deck removals, fence removals, and shed removals. We can also haul away furniture, landscaping paraphernalia, and yard waste (tree clippings, rocks, etc) to help spruce up your backyard and save your back at the same time.

Junk King Austin is well equipped for both inside work and outside jobs. No job is too big or too small! We can do a variety of things from attic and garage clean outs to large appliance removals and building clean-outs. Call or book online today for your free estimate and let Junk King do all the work!

Organizing Your Garage

An organized garage is a happy garage. It is always nice to know where everything is and to feel that a space is clean and well kept. This is especially true in the garage. Organizing your garage will give you a sense of accomplishment as well as the feeling of being in control and on top of your home.  Junk King of Austin is here with some tips for organizing your garage:

  • Take stock of everything currently in your garage. There is no way to organize the unknown. The first step is always to know what you’re dealing with. Do not shortchange this step; open every box, inspect every shelf, and go through every bag.
  • Make a pile for each kind of the item, including a pile of objects to get rid of. Group together items for camping, tools, etc.
  • Once everything has been grouped, check for duplicates. Make sure that you only have one of each item and donate or sell repetitions.
  • Assess what systems of organization works best for you and your family. Try to avoid a complete overhaul, unless your garage was a total disorganized disaster area. If there was simply no order before you started organizing then a total restructuring may be called for.
  • Think about the most logical way to group items in zones. It makes sense, for example, to store all the toys in one place.
  • Take measurements and decide which new organizational pieces to buy. For instance, you may want a work bench, storage bins, or need a few more shelves.
  • Open floor space is often the goal of garage organization. Keep that in mind as you begin putting away items in their new homes. Shelving can be your best friend when optimizing storage space in the garage.

We are prepared for homes, attics, basements, garages, sheds, office buildings, and outdoor spaces. We will haul away anything and everything that is not hazardous waste.

Home Organization For The Holidays

Efficient coordination and home organization are of the most stressful aspects of the holidays for many homes. However, home organization for the holidays does not have to be a thorn in your side. Junk-King Austin has some tips to help keep you sane:

  • Have a plan – make a list of what needs to be done, when people are coming into town and what parties you will be attending. Writing it out will help you feel less stressed, will enable you to keep track of it all and will aid you in delegating tasks you cannot finish on your own. 
  • One thing at a time – do not start 18 projects at once. Begin one task and work it to completion. This applies to cleaning as well. Focus on one room at a time, cleaning it to your satisfaction before moving on to the next room.
  • Relax – the most important part of the holidays is the relationships we invest in. Friends and family will likely not remember how clean your house was or if you were a couple of minutes late to dinner. What they will remember is how everyone was treated, the pleasant or unpleasant atmosphere and whether or not everyone was happy.

If you find you do not have enough space to hide your gifts or host your guests, Junk-King Austin is one call away from helping you out! We clean out any space –  in the home, at work, in a storage space – and haul away everything*. We can even haul off larger items like broken refrigerators, unwanted hot tub, broken down boats or vehicles and unused heating units. Let Junk-King Austin help reduce your stress this holiday season!

*Junk-King Austin does not haul away hazardous materials.

Fall Yard Clean Up

Fall comes with a lot of extra yard waste. From pumpkins to hay bales, rotting firewood to pruned branches, it can be a chore to figure out what to do with all of it. No one wants it cluttering their yard or rotting on their doorsteps (looking at you, Jack-O-Lanterns). What’s the easiest way to get rid of this natural fall waste?

Calling Junk-King Austin! We will come to your house and take care of your fall yard clean up. We will save you time, so you can relax or enjoy your loved ones. We also save your back – no need to bend or lift, let our team handle it.

Appliance & Hot Tub Removal

Unused and broken appliances take up a lot of room. No one wants old refrigerators, air conditioning units, or hot tubs just sitting around, but figuring out what to do with them is a headache of its own. They’re heavy to lift, large to maneuver, and there’s always a question of safety.
