Awesome Ideas For Converting Your Attic

What is up in your attic? Has this become your home’s storage locker? More importantly, could you put that space to better use? Obviously, any attic that has low rafters and exposed insulation might not be available for converting. However, if you have an attic that you can stand up in and get to by climbing a flight of stairs, then you should definitely think about converting it into a more practical space. It might take a little help with electrical wiring and drywall but could be surprised with how easy it is to turn your attic into something new. Consider the possibilities:

A Spare Bedroom

If you have siblings that are currently sharing a room, then there will come a time when they want to be on their own. Converting your attic into a spare bedroom could be the solution you are looking for. As for deciding who gets the new bedroom you can always rely on the old coin toss.

A Quiet Space

By its very design, an attic is cut off from the rest of the house. You can use that to your advantage by creating a quiet space all your own. Once you put up your drywall, fix the flooring and paint the space it could become nice little reading nook.

A Playroom

Kids need a safe place to play. They also need to place where they can keep all of their stuff. The attic can become their playroom. As they get older, it can evolve into their hang out.

A Home Office

Whether you have a job that allows you to work from home or you’re starting up your own business, you need a place that can work as an office. Sharing a dining room table or kitchen counter with the rest of family just isn’t going to cut it. Your converted office can be the perfect home office with plenty of room for storage.

Art Studio

If you or someone in your family is the creative type, then perhaps the attic can become an art studio. It might help to bring in some more light with a window but that’s an easy fix that will add great value to the room.

Before any of those attic conversions can happen you first need to get rid of all the clutter you have up there. Junk King Chattanooga is the perfect partner for this type of work. They’ll dispatch a team of professional movers who will make as many trips up the attic stairs as needed to get rid of all your unwanted clutter. You just need to point to all the things you want removed and Junk King will whisk it away. The first step for your attic conversion is a call to Junk King Chattanooga.

Chattanooga Don’t Be Scared Of Your Attic (Or Basement) This Year

Have you ever been woken up by strange noises coming from your basement or attic? These “things that go bump in the night” could be unwelcome visitors in the form of four-legged critters. As the weather turns colder, these animals will be seeking out a warm place to say and they just love burrowing into some old piles of clothes or papers you got stacked in the attic or basement. Don’t give them a chance at making a home in your home. Instead, bring in the team from Junk King to take care of your attic and basement decluttering.

It’s easy to store things down in the basement or up in the attic. Once you make it past the stairs, those things are “out of sight and out of mind.” That is probably the reason why you haven’t gotten rid of it yet. However, when you start to get overrun with the clutter, then it might be time to reevaluate your storage plans. The Junk King crew won’t have an issue with climbing those stairs as many times as it takes to get at your junk. You’ll only have to climb once to show them what you want taken away. The rest will be handled by them!

No matter what you might be getting rid of, there is always the chance that Junk King could find a second home for your stuff.

That can mean your old clothes, furniture and other household goods won’t go to waste. As for everything else, Junk King will make every effort to get those things recycled. The last thing they want to do is make a trip to the landfill. So far, they’ve been staying away and that’s good news for Chattanooga.

All those recycling and charity drops offs are included in the low prices offered by Junk King. You’ll only be charged a flat rate based on how much space your junk is going to fill on the back of the truck. You’ll never be hit with a “per pound price.” When you’re ready to clear out your attic or basement, Junk King will be ready for you!

Chattanooga Junk Hauling King

The title of reigning king in the Chattanooga junk hauling business goes to Fred Friday. He’s the proud owner of an extremely busy Junk King franchise. As a professional junk hauler, Fred (or Mr. King, as his customers call him) has seen all kinds of debris. Since he began operations, he has hauled away true treasures and plenty of rubbish. On the “treasure” side, Fred took away an Edison Dictaphone, new appliances still in the box, clothes with the tags and working computers. Some folks just can’t be bothered with the junk removal and that’s fine with Fred.

Fred Friday Chattanooga

“If you can sell it; great. If you can donate it; great. If you can’t, then call us,” Friday says.

When called into action, Fred and his team are never sure what to expect. A job can mean hauling away a single sofa or an office full of equipment. Real Estate agents like Mary Sanders have found that Fred’s Junk King to be a very valuable asset. Recently, she hired Fred to help with a seller who needed to clear out 30 years of accumulate stuff. “She was overwhelmed, and didn’t know what to do,” Sanders says. “Fred and his crew were wonderful. They reduced her stress level and helped to get her house ready for sale.”

This is actually a second career for Fred. He spent 30 plus years working at Olan Mills. When his job was phased out, Fred wasn’t ready to retire. He visited the California based home company of Junk King and liked what he saw. Once he signed up for the franchise, he’s been keeping busy.

Fred also appreciates Junk King’s eco-friendly disposal policy. This means if an item can be recycled, it will be at no extra charge. “We’ll strip the rubber and cloth off of a mattress, and take the metal out. We also recycle cardboard in large quantities.” That’s the kind of recycling work that will reduce the strain on area landfills and that’s a huge benefit to all of Chattanooga.

Fred approaches each job like it’s a treasure hunt. For the things that hold value, Fred keeps them in storage. Of course, the response to his team’s work is also extremely rewarding. “I love seeing how thrilled people are once we’re done,” he says. “I love hearing someone say, ‘Wow! This is great! I can walk into my storeroom,’ or, ‘I can get my car in my garage!’” I

Chattanooga Couch Pickup

old couch pickupThe Chattanooga Times has a cool weekly featured called “Get Off the Couch.” This is where they highlight all the great things you can do around the area provided you actually get off your couch.

Garbage Disposal Chattanooga

If you have a garbage disposal you might not be doing all you can to keep it running properly. For instance, even if you don’t have something to churn up every day, you should try to run it regularly to prevent rust and corrosion. A good tip is to run it after every dish washing with a little soap. It’s also best to run your disposal with cold water when you want to chop up food waste. That’s because if there is any grease it will solidify and be easier to break up. To freshen up your garbage disposal run a few citrus peels through the machine. You also only want to put biodegradable stuff down the drain but not grease, oil or fat. You should avoid any fibrous foods like cornhusks or celery stalks because they can get wrapped around the motor and causes a jam up.

Now that you know about your kitchen garbage disposal how are you dealing with your bigger garbage disposal? In other words, what do you do when you’ve got to throw away big stuff that won’t fit down the sink or even in a trashcan? These would be the bulky items like old pieces of furniture, a broke stove or some exercise machine that isn’t being used any more. That’s the kind of stuff you need to call Junk King Chattanooga for. These are the junk removal pros that will take care of all that kind of garbage disposal without any effort on your part.

They’ll also be coming with the right tools such as dollies, straps, wheelbarrows, containers, rakes and brooms. Yes, when Junk King removes your clutter, they also sweep up after themselves!

Hiring Junk King means you can finally get your garage cleaned out. This is important for the winter if you want to be able to bring your car back inside like it is supposed to. It’s also important to reduce the risk of hazards. Piles of old newspapers or junk that is stacked to the rafters isn’t doing anybody any good.

Back to School Junk Removal In Chattanooga

The students returning to Central High in Hamilton County discovered something missing this year. In fact, this item has been missing since 1968. That would be the school’s planned second auditorium. Most of the schools in this Chattanooga district have a gym and an auditorium. One is for sports and the other for assemblies. Not so with Central High but it wasn’t for a lack of planning. Recently uncovered architectural drawings and floor plans show that a sprawling “multi-purpose auditorium, with classrooms, music rooms and storage areas was to be built at a later date.” That was forty-five years ago and they’re still waiting.

Editor in chief of the school’s online newspaper, Ray Walker is on the case. “It’s disappointing that we seem to always get overlooked,” Walker said. “You look at other high schools, even middle schools, and they have better facilities than we do. Central is a great old school with a lot of pride, but people seem to forget about us.” He is putting the pressure on Hamilton County to come through with the new building.

Thanks to Ray’s investigation there is one commissioner who is standing up for the students. Chester Bankston of District 9, whose children graduated from Central said, “I will support them all the way. This community deserves what everyone else already has. We really need to build a new Harrison Elementary, but maybe there’s a way to do this project in a way that will benefit Central.”

Has your back to school experience this year been this dramatic? Hopefully your kids all got off to a good start. Now that they are back to cracking open the books, you can get back into your normal routines. This is a golden opportunity to give your home “the once over” with regard to getting rid of clutter. You don’t really need any hidden floor plans to tell you where your space is being wasted. That would be under all the junk you’re holding onto for no good reason. Actually, the reason is probably that you never had any way to get rid of heavy and oversized items. That has all changed since Junk King came to Chattanooga.

These are the Chattanooga junk removal experts who can help you get rid of all your unwanted stuff without your breaking a sweat. That’s because the Junk King crew will be doing all the work. That includes carrying out anything you want tossed away. It also includes loading that junk onto their truck and then seeing to it that the junk is properly disposed of. Back the school is a time for new beginnings. Call Junk King today to get a fresh start on the fall.

 

Got Junk Items in Chattanooga?

Over in Knoxville, there are acres of weeds being mowed down by an unlikely source: Goats. The Tennessee Clean Water Network rented the goats from nearby farmers to clear out patches of overgrowth at the Williams Creek Urban Forest. The more the goats eat, the more they revealed the garbage that was tossed out there.

“It was pretty dense in there, so we couldn’t get a good idea. We couldn’t even walk through there it was so dense with invasive species like honeysuckle vine and privet. So now that we can see what we’re up against, it’s going to be a little bit,” said Renee Hoyos, the executive director of the Tennessee Clean Water Network.

Despite what you think, goats don’t eat everything. They’re not going to be chomping on that garbage. That will be leftover for municipal crews. When it comes to getting rid of junk nothing beats some good old-fashioned “elbow grease.” In other words, if you’ve got junk then goats won’t be much help. Instead, you should be calling Junk King Chattanooga. These are the junk removal specialists who never met a pile of trash they couldn’t get rid of.

Sooner or later we’ve all got junk that will need to be hauled away. It really doesn’t take all that long to fill up a garage, attic or basement with stacks of boxes, piles of trash and all kinds of debris. The moment you decide that stuff is no longer useful it becomes something to be tossed out. We’ve all got junk and the best way to haul it off is with the professional crew provided by Junk King Chattanooga.

There’s no limit to the kind of junk that a Junk King crew can take from your home. You’ll have your own two-man crew to handle all the lifting and loading. That’s going to make a huge difference if you have heavy objects in out of the way places like your basement or attic. The JK crew won’t be bothered one bit with climbing stairs. They love that stuff! After the crew clears your home of whatever you’re tossing out they can turn their attention to your garage and yard. If you’ve got debris left over from the last storm or anything else that is causing an eyesore then give it Junk King to take away.

Your first phone call will set this removal plan into action. They’ll send over a supervisor to size up your piles of junk. That’s important because this is how you’ll be charged: by the amount of space your junk takes up on the truck. In many cases, you can have your junk hauled away with that same first visit. Bottom line: if you’ve got junk then Junk King is the only company you should be dealing with.
