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.
Cleaning out your home can be a daunting, time-consuming task. Where do you even start? How do you decide what to get rid of? Junk-King Austin wants to help. Here are some home organization tips:
Work on one room at a time, completing each space before you start on the next.
When you walk into each room, start at the immediate left of the door frame. Move to the right, cleaning out as you go. This way, you won’t miss any areas.
When conflicted on whether or not to part with an item, as yourself: “If I were forced to move tomorrow without warning, would I bring this with me?”
If you find yourself overwhelmed, give Junk-King Austin a call. We will clean out your garage, attic, shed, closets, rooms, and businesses. We haul away everything*, big or small. Junk-King Austin also values recycling, passing on up to 60% of what we collect.

Austin’s number one barbecue spot, Stubbs is offering up some tips to get your grill ready for the summer sizzling. If you have a gas grill, the pros from Stubbs recommend unhooking the propane then inspecting the burners to make sure there is no rust or loose connections. They also suggest that you pull off the grates and scrub them down removing all the caked on gunk. Unlike a good cast iron skillet, you don’t want your BBQ grills covered in charred food. Before using the grill for cooking, go ahead and fire it up and let those flames burn off any remnants of cleaners or loose char.
Of course, cleaning up your grill is just one step to take in order to get your backyard ready for summer. You might also want to bring in Junk King to handle a total junk removal assignment. You’ll have a hard working crew at your disposal to take away things like car parts, construction waste, tires, lawn trimmings, shrubs and even an old BBQ grill. Yes, if your grill is too far gone, then you’ll want to replace it with a new model. Nothing like starting fresh!
When the Junk King crew finishes clearing out the rubbish from your backyard, they can set their sights on the rest of your home. This means you can get all the unused sporting equipment or boxes of rubbish out of your garage. Your basement can finally be cleared of the worn out furniture you’ve been keeping down there. Think of this as a total home decluttering. Isn’t that something you’ve been itching to do?
With regard to pricing, Junk King is surprisingly affordable. You’re only going to be charged a flat rate based on the amount of space that your junk will fill up on the back of the truck. This is a very low price compared to what it would cost if you had to hire your own movers, rent your own truck and give up time out of your workday. With Junk King, the rate is all inclusive.
You’ll also be doing your part for the environment. That’s because Junk King makes every effort to keep the bulk of what they collect out of area landfills. Instead, they would rather see your junk get recycled or dropped off to a charity. Start your summer with junk removal done right by the pros at Junk King.
