Spring Cleaning Tips in Chattanooga

When you start your spring cleaning project you do so with good intentions. You want to get all the dirt and dust that has built up through the winter out of your home. But even the best intentions can diminish especially if you are doing the job by yourself. If you are your own cleaning crew than maybe you can break up the job over the course of a few weekends. Take a couple hours every Saturday morning taking on two rooms at a time. That way you won’t feel overwhelmed and can still enjoy part of your weekend. If you’ve got some help in the form of other family members than the goal should be to divvy up the chores evenly. Naturally, everyone should be in charge of cleaning up their own rooms.

You should also have a checklist for every room. Here is where you can get into the details. For instance, you’ll want to clean those ceiling fans and light fixtures. These are two overlooked areas. The same can be said for the back of things like refrigerators, stoves, dryers and washing machines. Pull these appliances out from the wall and have at it! This is where a good vacuum hose will be a big help.

If you’re getting help from a family crew you might benefit from offering a little reward at the end of their assignments. Even a beloved cake can go a long way towards motivating the crew. One crew that won’t need much motivation is the one you would hire with Junk King Chattanooga. These would be the folks who can help haul away all those oversized items you want to throw out but can’t fit into the trashcan. The only motivation a Junk King crew needs is for you to schedule an appointment. Once that is set in motion, you’ll be amazed at how easy it becomes to finally get rid of all that unwanted stuff you’ve been holding onto for all these years.

The Junk King Chattanooga crew will climb up or down any flight of stairs to get to your junk. These are professional movers who will take great care with your walls and floors. They will also have their own truck ready to receive your junk. Keep in mind that you’re not going to be paying for any extras like truck rental or dumping fees. You’ll just be charged only by the amount of space your junk takes up on the truck. When it comes to junk removal it doesn’t get any better.

Chattanooga Cabinet Removal

If you’ve got your sights set on a kitchen remodel you can either roll up your sleeves and do the job yourself or hire a professional contractor to get the makeover completed to your specifications. A contractor is really as good as their last job. That’s why it’s important that you check their references and find out about their work crews. Often a contractor will subcontract out the work because he’s trying to get as many clients as possible. What you have to look out for is getting what you pay for. The contractor you hired then he should be the one involved with your project. He won’t tell you that but his previous clients might. Take note that a contractor who is busy is a good thing. If your contractor can’t commit to your project for several weeks then it’s because he’s in demand. That’s a good thing!

When a  crew shows up for work, you don’t have to provide them with a catered lunch but a pot of coffee or cooler of soft drinks will go a long way towards creating a work crew that is dedicated to making sure the job is done right. You’ll well within your rights to ask questions but you need to give the crew a chance to do their work. And when it comes to pets or kids it would be best to steer them clear of the project for the duration of the workday.

To keep costs under control, you’ll want to make sure you plan out the remodel down to the last detail. You don’t want to change your mind or rethink things while a crew is standing around. Just because you’re hiring a work crew doesn’t mean you can’t get your hands dirty if you want to. Taking down the cabinets and removing the counter tops is a job you can easily accomplish as long as you make plans to have all that refuse removed. That’s where Junk King of Chattanooga can be a big help.

Junk King is a company that specializes in all kinds of junk removal and that includes demolition from a remodel job. Instead of renting a dumpster or trying to cram all the waste into your trashcans, schedule a removal appointment with Junk King. You could take down all the cabinets in the morning and have Junk King come by in the afternoon to make a clean sweep of the area. That way your work crew will have plenty of room to get the job done. While Junk King Chattanooga is taking out your old cabinets they can also clear out any other junk you want tossed. Welcome your new kitchen with a clutter free rest of the house!
