Declutter Your Chattanooga Home

Do you dread coming home at the end of every workday? Not because of who you might be living with but because of the mess that you are surrounded by. You’re not alone. Many folks find that with a busy schedule it’s all they can do to get dinner on the table and attend to the needs of their family before collapsing in bed at the end of a busy day. This is when things like decluttering your home go right out the window! If you’re frustrated with the amount of clutter you’re surrounded by here are some helpful hints towards changing that situation and creating a clutter free living environment.
The first thing you need to accept is the fact that a lot of this clutter is going to end up being junk you can throw away. If you schedule an appointment with Junk King Chattanooga to send one of their crews out to your home then you will have a specific target date in mind when it comes to getting rid of all that junk. For instance, if you make the appointment with Junk King for the following Saturday then this weekend will be the perfect time for you to decide which junk items you’re going to throw out.
Setting a deadline that you have to adhere to is a great way to jumpstart your decluttering. What you don’t want to get into is a situation where you’re simply moving your junk from one room to another. That might work if you have company coming over but ultimately it’s just going to end up bogging you down even more. Again it goes back to this issue of accepting that you’ll be throwing this junk out.
With regard to determining whether or not you should throw something out, you need to think in terms of practicality or sentimentality. Nobody would ask you to get rid of something that holds sentimental value but could you make that claim for an old sofa or mattress? What about a computer you no longer use? Is that really sentimental? Over the years you might have found that storing items in boxes is a way to keep your junk organized. While that may be true in certain circumstances you have to ask yourself how many boxes you now have full of stuff you haven’t sorted through? Are you being overrun by boxes? Here’s where the Junk King crew can also be of service. Not only will they be able to move those large bulky items but they can pretty much take away anything you wanted to whether it’s boxed up or just gathered in a pile.
The moment your home has become decluttered it won’t take much effort to keep it that way. Just get in the habit of asking yourself “why am I keeping this?” Unless you have a good answer that item whatever it is needs to be thrown out.

Chattanooga Office Cleanout for the Holidays

Wrapping up the business year isn’t just about planning for the office Christmas party (although that’s very important!). It also means putting certain things in order in anticipation of the coming year. This could mean everything from employee reviews, to handing out year-end bonuses to reassessing the company’s future. One item that should be on the top of any Chattanooga office’s end of year to-do list is to complete a top to bottom office cleanout. While some employees might balk at this, the truth is whatever clutter or mess that is lurking in an office was created by them so they should have a hand in cleaning that up. However, they don’t have to do that alone. Savvy office managers have turned to hiring experienced Chattanooga office cleanout crews like Junk King to come in and get the business in shape.
Just as it is with your home, things in an office have a tendency to pile up. The difference is that in your home you can account for every item that is stuffed away in a closet or basement. In an office, you might discover some unused equipment or furniture that is taking up valuable space but you have no idea where they came from. The natural instinct is not to rock the boat. If there is something sitting in a storage area or abandoned cubicle it must be there for a reason. Were you to ask around you might just find that the reason is nobody wants to accept responsibility for throwing something away. The result is a lot of office junk that should be disposed of.
This same principle of clearing out the clutter can also apply to company files. While it is true that many files need to be held onto, it’s amazing what a file review can uncover. Are there duplicate files? Are the same files being kept in boxes uploaded onto the company hard drives? Just how much office space can you reclaim if you were to toss out all that junk?
Usually, any office has a maintenance crew that is part of the building staff. But just because there is a crew on call to fix the plumbing or AC doesn’t mean that same crew is going to help take out the junk. That’s why hiring a professional crew of office cleanout experts like Junk King Chattanooga can get the job done without a flurry of memos flying back and forth. If you are stepping up to manage this disposal project you just need to identify what has to be taken away and schedule the appointment with the junk haulers. They’ll handle all the rest. If you don’t want to disrupt the work day, you can schedule the removal project for a weekend or after office hours. That’s another benefit of hiring professional junk haulers: they are going to work with your schedule. Once all the junk is cleared out of the office, you can focus on more important things like who is going to DJ that Christmas party?!

Clear Some Clutter Before Your Chattanooga Halloween Party

Halloween is not just for kids anymore. Sure, they are the reason we buy candy and keep it at the ready for the trick or treaters. But be honest; don’t you pick the candy you’ll have no problem eating if there is some left in the bowl? Typically the weekend before the big day, you’ll find adult parties popping up all over the neighborhood. If you want to get into the act this year by throwing your own Halloween fest here are some helpful tips you can apply to your party production:
Get Creative With the Decorations:
There will be an unlimited supply of fake spider webs or plastic tombstones to spruce up your front yard but since a lot of the party action will be indoors you want to make sure your creepy decorations extend there as well. To set the mood you can rent a theatrical fog machine to lay a mist of eerie smoke by the front door to great your guests. Its’ also easy to find a dry ice supplier for some chunks of this special effect. When dry ice is dropped into any liquid, it creates that smoky look and it melts away completely harmless… just wear gloves when you break up the dry ice.
You can also hang bats, spiders and other ghoulish items from the ceiling with fishing wire and tacks. Any chance for your guest to knock into something floating in the air will certainly elicit a scream or two.
Have the Digital  Camera Standing By:
You can create a live streaming digi photo display by setting up a lap top and digital camera hooked up. You can either assign photography duties to a special friend or simply pass around the camera and encourage everyone to start snapping. You can even set up a faux photo booth and make sure everyone stops by for a snap.
Go Black & White on the TV:
While you pick out your perfect party soundtrack, don’t forget the visual element. You can run some classic black and white horror films on the TV with the volume turned down to add a creepy allure. Good choices would be any of the classic horror films from the 40s and 50s plus the perennial favorite “Night of the Living Dead:” the original!
Clear Out the Clutter:
Cleaning up before and after your Halloween party will be greatly aided if you hired the professional services of junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga.  Before the party, you might want to make room in the garage to set up your spooky buffet or mini-haunted house display. To accomplish that, you’ll want to toss out all that junk that is stacked to the rafters. After the party, you’ll have plenty of trash that might overflow your garbage cans. With a professional team of junk haulers on call before and after the party you’ll be able to make sure to stay on top of the cleanup efforts.
