Furniture Donations Pickup in Albany

Nothing can replace all that was lost during the recent Super Storm Sandy that battered the east coast. However, there was an amazing attempt to heal some of the emotional wounds and raise fund for the displaced. On 12/12/12 such legendary stars as Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones joined other rock ‘n’ rollers for a benefit concert that brought in over $50 million dollars. Among the recipient of those donations was the Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church which needed $25,000 to put in shower stalls and beds for all the volunteers who came to the region to rebuild. Another group received 25K to provide storage for families whose homes were damaged but were able to save a few items. Rockaway Relief was given $100,000. This is a group that was formed after the storm by a former New York restaurateur who wanted to help out his hometown. The good news is that this spirit of giving and volunteering shows no signs of letting up. That’s important because there is certainly a lot more work to be done.

Another organization that is doing what they can is Junk King Capital District. Not only is the Albany area branch of Junk King involved in many charitable efforts but they also make it a point to donate any collected junk that might be refurbished to those organizations which can benefit from such items. Those charities employ skilled workers to reupholster furniture or give a table a new paint job. Those piece of furniture can then be handed over to families in need or sold at a discount with the funds going back to the charity. This means your junk will be given a second lease on life.

The best thing about this donation effort is you don’t have to do a thing except hire Junk King. They’ve already got a long list of terrific organizations who will know just what to do with your junk. You also don’t have to worry about figuring out whether or not your collected stuff is worthy of refurbishing. The Junk King crews are experts at making those kinds of judgment calls. All you need to think about is what you want to get rid of!

Hiring Junk King Capital District to haul off your unwanted items is going to free up a lot of space especially if those items are of the oversized variety. The Junk King crew will do the lifting and loading. You can proudly stand on your porch and wave good-bye to your junk knowing it’s going off to a much better place!

New Year’s Resolution 2013 Junk King Albany New York

Along with the list of popular New Year’s resolutions like getting into better shape and eating healthier you could consider a resolution that would make your home a better place to live in. That would be making sure your living space is as safe and sound as it could be.

Top of the list should be a check for radon. This is an odorless and colorless gas that has been linked to over 21,000 cases of lung cancer each year according to the EPA. The harsh truth is that one in every fifteen homes has an elevated level of radon. You can find a simple testing kit for around $20 that can check your home and give you terrific peace of mind. The same peace of mind can continue when you add carbon monoxide detectors along with your smoke alarms. A carbon monoxide detector is especially important for any home with an active fireplace.

Guess what causes over 15,000 building fires a year? Dryer lint. That’s based on surveys taken by the U.S. Fire Administration. Before you run the dryer you should clear out the lint trap. You also want to make sure your bathrooms and attics have proper ventilation to reduce the risk of mold buildup.

Those are all simple fixes that will go a long way to remove the “unseen” hazards in your home. But what about all those potential hazards that are in plain sight? We’re talking about all the clutter that might be clogging up hallways, stairs, closets, basements and garages. Isn’t it time to make a resolution to get rid of all of that? You don’t have to do it alone. Junk King of the Capital District is standing by to lending a helping hand.

Hiring Junk King means you’re really hiring your own work crew and truck. Those experienced lifters will be able to pick up and take out any item you want removed from your home. They have no trouble climbing down stairs or going up into the attic. You don’t have to move your junk; let the Junk King crew handle that. They’ll also have a big enough truck to contain all the junk that you’ll be throwing out. All it takes it one phone call to put that resolution into action.

Honoring this resolution means you’ll be able to finally toss out all those “eyesore” items like the ratty sofa or bulky TV set. Also think about getting rid of the kids’ furniture they’ve outgrown along with the backyard swing sets. Time to move on and toss out! That’s the perfect way to start the New Year.
