Columbus Home Clean Outs & Trash Outs

Columbus Home CleanoutsWe are finally crawling out of the severe foreclosure crisis that has touched every community in the country. Columbus certainly wasn’t spared. In an effort to have a clean slate, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency is supervising the demolition of nearly 5,000 vacant and abandoned homes located throughout the state. To accomplish this huge undertaking the state was granted $60 million from the Save the Dream Ohio project funds. This might seem like an extreme measure with regard to dealing with foreclosed homes but it can actually help stabilize property values by clearing out homes that are considered a blight in a neighborhood. That is good news for the current homeowners. It might also be a golden opportunity for potential buyers.

The banks and lending institutions that own those homes would much rather have them sold then flattened. To accomplish that task it would take a bit of hard renovating work but it’s certainly easy to get done especially when you can partner with a junk removal service like Junk King Columbus. These are the clean out experts who have seen it all when it comes to junk removal. A home that has been abandoned might look like it is one its last legs but a lot of that is just cosmetic. First, get rid of the trash and junk then you’ll be able to get the renovation work done.

Junk King loves to handle foreclosure cleanouts. When the order is given to “take it all away” the Junk King crew will make short work of having that home cleared out. They can also do the same with regard to taking away trash and debris from front and back lawns. It’s amazing how a simple cleanup from Junk King can transform a property.

There are other instances where Junk King has helped homeowners manage estates. If someone in your family is downsizing into a smaller place, then hiring Junk King to clean up the home and get it ready for the market is going to be a big burden off your shoulders.

It stands to reason that if you’re hiring Junk King to help with your real estate endeavors they can certainly help with your own home. Fall is a great season to clear the clutter from your home as you get yourself prepared for the upcoming holidays. Whether you’ll be throwing a Halloween party or having out of town guests for Christmas you want to make sure you home is in good shape. Junk King can help you get there.

Getting the house in order for the holidays

Clutter happens.

It starts small: a cardboard box or a pile of newspapers that you plan to recycle; an obsolete computer or an old television set.

Then the holidays roll around with all the presents and their packaging. I don’t know about you, but Ohio winters always sap my energy when it comes to housework. If you fall behind and the piles begin to form, it’s easy to feel like you’re up against an insurmountable task.

Whatever the problem, when it comes to clutter, Junk King Columbus is convenient, affordable and eco-friendly, and we serve all of Franklin County and then some. Whether stacks of out-of-date magazines, antiquated VHS tapes or damaged DVDs, we will help you cut through the clutter and get your life back without spending days sorting through the mess.

  • Need to clean out the closet, basement, attic or garage so you can hide gifts for family and friends? We can help.
  • Don’t want to leave the packaging from presents in your trash for anyone who drives by to see? We’ve got you covered.

The holidays are a time of family and friends. It might be nice to clean out the guest bedroom so someone can sleep in there. Even knowing that, it can be hard to find the time to get around to cleaning out all those little storage spaces that fill up so quickly it seems like odds and ends must be breeding.  Junk King is a  local business, located in Dublin—that can get it all sorted and carted off at one time.

Later, after the season of giving, when all the wrapping paper and ribbons have settled, you can call us up for help with that too. Giant cardboard boxes, Styrofoam packaging, the Christmas tree, the decorations from the New Year’s bash, even the old TV (if you were very good this year!) are all things we’ll gladly collect and haul away while you just relax and enjoy being treated like a king.

Mother’s Day is Fast Approaching

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful women of this world!

Haul Junk Out of Your Columbus Home and Create a Home Office

Before moving into your new Columbus home you probably had visions of what you would do with each room. Obviously the bedrooms, living room and dining room are only a matter of arranging furniture. But what about those spare rooms you might be lucky enough to have? No matter what your original thought was for how to occupy those rooms often they become the depository of all the junk a family can collect over the years. This is the room where a spare sofa ends up or where the old futon goes to live or it becomes a de facto kid’s playroom. Now that the kids are grown up perhaps it’s time to turn that room into something more productive like a home office.
A home office is actually a space that can become a tax deduction. However, there are some stipulations. For instance the home office needs to be used exclusively for your off-site business. If your kids use it to play video games or do their homework then it might be an issue when it comes to taking a deduction. This is a matter that’s best discussed with your tax accountant. Even beyond a potential tax deduction there are still many other benefits of creating a home office space.
Having a dedicated home office allows you to have a space where you can focus on your work. This is a vitally important especially if you’re living in a busy household. It might be hard to take your laptop to the kitchen table and get work done while everyone else is buzzing about. Your home office can also be established as a privacy zone. You can set out the rules that when the door is closed no one should come in. This will allow you to get that work done without any interruptions. There’s also a psychological component to having a home office. It allows you to separate work from family time.
A home office also helps you stay organized with regard to all your bills and important paperwork. This could be where you manage all the household expenses. This organization can also serve as an inspiration to the rest your family who might be a bit “challenged” when it comes to keeping things together!
Before you can convert that spare room into a home office you’ll need to clear out all the junk. You can get help by calling upon the services of professional Columbus Hauling team like Junk King. to come by and take out all the stuff you crammed into that spare room over the years. During the same trip those junk haulers can also take away any other big bulky items you been hanging onto in your home. With your new home office clear of debris and junk you’ll be able to focus more clearly on the tasks at hand. Who knows? Your new home office might even inspire you to start your own second business. Wouldn’t it be great if you’re commute to work was just a few steps down the hallway?

Clearing the Clutter for Your Columbus Thanksgiving

The perfect Thanksgiving begins with the perfect preparation list. While it is true that some people like to just roll with the punches and take things as they come those who embrace the concept of making less seem to have many more hassle free experiences. If your Thanksgiving celebration involves guests coming over and cooking a big meal then you want to do yourself a favor and put together a thorough preparation list.
Plan your dinner menu. When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner there are some items that just aren’t negotiable. These would be a juicy turkey, savory gravy and spicy stuffing. There are all sorts of variations of side dishes that you can incorporate into your meal but a Thanksgiving dinner is not the time to experiment. If there is a new side dish you saw your favorite celebrity chef make why not try it out before the big day? This way you can truly see if you can make it and if it’s any good.
Plan your shopping list. It might seem redundant that part of your preparation list is to make another list for your shopping. However, your shopping list needs to be as thorough as possible because the last thing you want to do is race back and forth to the grocery store as you get closer to the holiday. The more you can shop for in advance the better off you’ll be.
Plan your cooking times. This is where organization really comes into play. Starting with the turkey you want to plan out exactly how long things are going to take to cook so that everything comes out on time. It’s that bird that really causes plenty of problems for chefs all around the country. That’s why Butterball sets up a 24-hour hotline on Thanksgiving! As any good chef will tell you taking the turkey out of the oven and right to the table is a mistake. It needs to rest for a little bit before you start slicing. In those final resting moments is when you can put the finishing touches on the rest of your side dishes. They should all come out together.
Plan your seating arrangements. It’s the obvious choice is to go boy/girl, boy/girl you might want to mix it up a bit more and have the couples split up so that they are sharing their personalities with the rest of your guests. Place cards are a fancy touch that you can add to your dinner that will make everyone feel special.
Plan the cleanup. As the cook you should not be the dishwasher. But the real cleanup will begin days before Thanksgiving when you need to get rid of all the junk in your home to make room for your guests. Even though you might not have clutter in your living room there could be items stuffed in closets or in spare rooms or in a garage that you should clear out just to make the place look nicer. You can accomplish this simply by hiring professional junk haulers like Junk King Columbus to show up for scheduled removal appointment. Once the junk is out of the way you can focus on your dinner!

Clear Some Clutter Before Your Columbus Halloween Party

Are you getting into the Halloween spirit this year by throwing a party? You might think that all you need is a great costume, some candy corn and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”  playing on a loop but you can do a whole lot better than that.
For instance, why not set up a graffiti board by the door with some colorful markers for guests to sign in with? If you think your guests are really going to get into the spirit of the holiday with their own costumes then you should be ready with prizes for the best couple, best group, spookiest or funniest costume.
For the munchies, finger food is really the only way to go. You can set up a “grazing station”  in your dining room where guests can stop by to fill up snack plates. The goal is to have food which you can put out early and let it stay out without a lot of fuss. You don’t want to be spending your party time in the kitchen and missing out on all the action.
You can also invite guests to bring their own carved pumpkins to add to your decorations. Speaking of which, if there are areas in your home you want blocked off, just string the doors with crime scene tape. Speaking of crime scene, you could turn those unused rooms into a kind of CSI tableau with some “dummy bodies.” Yes, the goal is to creep everyone out!
While the temptation might be to have candles burning throughout the home, it might be a safe choice to confine those to a fireplace or mantle. There is no telling what kind of hanging pieces of a costume that could cause trouble near an open flame.
If kids are going to be part of the party, you might want to set up their own kid zone where they can hang out and watch approved scary movies. They should also have their own snacks set up. And the occasional chaperone visit is a good idea.
As you get ready for your party, you will probably want to clean out the clutter of your home. While you might think that keeping some junk around will add to the creepy atmosphere you are trying to create, it actually can get in the way. Getting ready for your Halloween party is the perfect excuse to hire a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Columbus to come by and cart away all the stuff you have been holding onto for way too long. Even if you are not going to use your basement or garage as part of the party, there is no reason why it should not be cleaned up. You might also ask the same crew of professional junk haulers to come by after the party to take away all the trash. The goal is for you to enjoy your party without any stress. Save that for the other holidays!
