When Might You Need a Professional Furniture Removal in Fort Worth?
According to recent study published in People Magazine, over half of the American population (55 percent) reported making a significant change to their home decor in 2020. All that time spent inside our homes during COVID lockdowns did allow people to find the time to update their home interiors. Furthermore, the study reported that 71 percent of homeowners planned to take their interior renovations to the next level in the coming years. A few of the trendy design features that are most popular with homeowners across the country include:
- The introduction of smart furniture
- A wider use of natural elements in interior design
- Incorporation of colorful statement art
- A focus on sustainable design materials.
Even before the pandemic hit and increased the demand for home interior renovations, the furniture industry in the United States had a projected revenue of $66 billion back in 2019. These figures show that demand for new furniture and home furnishings will continue to rise in the coming years.
As most homeowners know, however, purchasing new furniture also means that you most likely have to get rid of the interior elements they are replacing. Most people don’t want an old couch or mattress stored in the garage as these bulky items take up major space in our already over-cluttered homes. If you plan on purchasing a new piece of furniture this year, it is important to have a prepared plan for how you are going to get rid of the older piece of furniture that is being replaced.
With Junk King of Fort Worth, we make it easy for people in the Fort Worth area to get rid of their old furniture items. In most cases, we are able to arrive and haul away your old furniture the same day you call us so that you can free up space in your home for the new pieces you have purchased. Furthermore, our professional junk removal teams will do all of the heavy lifting and hauling for you. Simply let us know what you want taken away, and we´ll do the rest!
The Ecological Footprint of Furniture Removal
The rising consumer demand for interior renovations poses an important question: Where do all of the millions of couches, armchairs, love seats, sectionals, beds, mattresses, and other pieces of furniture that get replaced each and every year eventually end up?
Unfortunately, the vast majority of old and used furniture items end up in landfills across the country. Furniture is often referred to as the “lost” waste stream due to the fact that very little efforts are being made to increase the recycling rate of furniture across the nation. In fact, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that “furniture waste generated by Americans in 2017 totaled a staggering 12.2 million tons, and 80.2 percent of it went to landfill.” The agency also found that only 0.3 percent of that furniture waste that was sent to landfill was recovered for recycling. Sending bulky furniture to the local landfill poses a serious environmental problem as our regional landfills are already nearing full capacity, and bulky furniture takes up an enormous amount of space.
At the same time there are also millions of American families who simply cannot afford to purchase new furniture for their homes. A new sofa and sectional can easily cost thousands of dollars, and even the most affordable new beds and mattresses can cost several hundred dollars. For families living paycheck to paycheck, new furniture items are often simply beyond their economic reach.
When you purchase new furniture items, it is important to think about how your older furniture pieces can either be donated or recycled, instead of ending up in the landfill. For people in the Fort Worth area, Junk King of Fort Worth offers a simple and efficient way to deal with your furniture removal needs in the most environmentally friendly way possible. For several years now, we have been the region´s top-rated junk hauling company, and for good reason! Besides offering the most affordable prices, the absolute best customer service, and the most efficient junk removal service, we are also one of the few junk haulers that has an environmental ethic at the foundation of our business practice.
Our junk removal teams take the extra time to sort through the junk items that we pick up. If the items are in decent shape, we make sure to send those items to thrift stores, donation centers, charities, and others who can help to get used furniture, appliances, and other household items into the hands of people who need them in our community. If the items are simply beyond repair, we also sort through them to ensure that every recyclable item is recycled. Today, we are proud to say that at least 60 percent of the junk items we pick up either get recycled, donated, or otherwise repurposed. That percentage is almost three times higher than the City´s current waste diversion rate!
