Tackling Post-Pandemic Clutter: Reclaim Your Space and Your Sanity

Tackling Post-Pandemic Clutter: Reclaim Your Space and Your Sanity


During the past three years or so, most people have probably spent more time in their homes than ever before. The combination of a global pandemic, lockdown orders, and a massive shift to online learning and work-from-home arrangements has meant that our living spaces are increasingly “occupied” throughout the day. Though that can certainly be a good thing (after all, it makes sense to actually “use” your $300,000 home), many people in Fresno may find that their homes suddenly feel more cluttered and disorderly due to the increased occupation.

With the closure of gyms, malls, movie theaters, restaurants, and other common entertainment spaces, most households probably turned to online shopping as a way to fill their time during COVID. In fact, one recent study found that barriers to in-store visits lead to many consumers turning to online shopping. Global retail e-commerce actually increased 26.4 percent to US$4.248 trillion in 2020, and that number continues to grow today.

Now that COVID restrictions have died down and life is getting back to normal, many homeowners, business owners, and other residents in Fresno might find that they no longer have much use for many of those “pandemic purchases” that are cluttering up your living and workspace.

If you no longer use that Pilates workout machine or any of the other dozens of other items you may have purchased during COVID lockdowns, Junk King in Fresno is here to help you quickly and efficiently clean up your space. We are proud to be the top-rated junk removal company in Fresno and the surrounding region and offer both residential and commercial junk removal services to help people and businesses in Fresno deal with their post-pandemic clutter in the most efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly way possible.

Some Somber Statistics on our Cluttered Homes

Before we take a look at how Junk King can help you recover your home and workspaces, let’s take a realistic look at how clutter has come to dominate our lives. One recent survey determined that more than one-fourth of Americans CURRENTLY think their home is at least somewhat cluttered. More specifically, six percent of American adults said their house or apartment is “very” cluttered, and 21 percent classified their space as “somewhat” cluttered. Another study found that 75 percent of struggling small business owners believed that being disorganized was the direct cause of some of their productivity losses.

Furthermore, in our consumer-driven society, it is becoming almost “second nature” to accumulate items that take up an enormous amount of valuable space in the places we occupy. This is part of the reason why the self-storage industry has grown to an incredible size, posting almost $40 billion in annual revenue. Despite an abundance of online organizing tips and YouTube videos, almost 10 percent of Americans rent a storage facility, and 25 percent of people with two-car garages don’t park in them at all due to the amount of clutter that they have accumulated.

Living in a cluttered home isn’t just a minor inconvenience, but can lead to high-stress levels and other negative mental health effects. One survey determined that around 55 percent of Americans find themselves stressed out by the clutter in their homes. In businesses, excess clutter can also seriously affect worker productivity, thus leading to financial hardships.


The Challenges of Maintaining a Clean and Uncluttered Home or Business

Unfortunately, keeping our homes and businesses organized, structured, and clutter-free can be extremely challenging. One of the biggest challenges that individuals, homeowners, and businesses face when trying to declutter their homes or businesses is the act of physically moving and removing the excess junk items they have laying around. Hauling a 300-pound couch located on the second floor of your home is not feasible for everyone, and most people probably don’t have a massive pickup truck and trailer that will be necessary to haul those items to the nearest donation center, thrift store, or recycling facility.

What’s worse is the fact that the public junk removal company in Fresno has strict regulations on bulky junk items. Simply hauling your old refrigerator or mattress out to the curb might actually land you a fine from the public waste management company. In some cases, scheduling a bulky item pickup might lead to a lengthy waiting period, especially during the holidays and other busy times of the year.

Why Hire Junk King of Fresno for your Post-Pandemic Cleanup?



If you need to get rid of bulky junk items that have taken over your home or business, is there an easier and faster solution?

We also believe wholeheartedly that superior customer service is the best way to attract and retain our residential and commercial customers. For that reason, we want to ensure that getting your junk hauled away is an effortless and straightforward process. We know that people hate hidden fees and charges, and we are proud to provide our customers with fair and transparent pricing mechanisms. Before committing to our services, we offer four different ways to get a free and transparent estimate:

Once you do decide to work with us, our superior customer service extends to the actual junk pickup as well. We believe that we should work around your schedule and not vice versa. For that reason, our customers can pick up a two-hour window on the day they need their junk to be picked up. Our Junk King team will call you 15-30 minutes before your scheduled pick-up to make sure that you´re at home.

Lastly, we also know that many of our customers in Fresno and the surrounding communities care about the environment and want to do their part to reduce the amount of junk that ends up in our local landfills. When you hire us for your junk removal needs, we make every effort to ensure that your “pandemic purchases” and other junk items are either donated, recycled, or upcycled. We have developed several partnerships and relationships with donation centers, recycling organizations, thrift stores, and others across the region, and we are proud to say that 60 percent of all the junk items we pick up either get recycled or reused. This number is significantly higher than other junk removal companies.

The process of decluttering a home or business without outside help may seem close to impossible for many homeowners, business owners, and other residents of Fresno.  Hiring a professional junk removal company like Junk King can make that process significantly easier and less stressful, while also not costing you an arm and a leg. Give us a call today to set up an appointment with our helpful junk removal teams to take control of your clutter management and enjoy a stress-free living. 

Holiday Cleanup Made Easy: Stress-Free Junk Removal for a Merry Season


With the holidays finally behind us, many people in Fresno are probably more than ready to get back to their normal lives and routines. Part of that “return-to-normal” starts with cleaning up the messes that the holidays left behind. Christmas decorations, Thanksgiving adornments, unwanted gifts stored in a closet, and the general mess left by dozens of family and friends who visited over the holiday season: all of these junk items can quickly lead to a disorderly and cluttered home. Fortunately for homeowners and other residents of Armona, Biola, Caruthers, Clovis, Corcoran, Del Rey, Dinuba, Exeter, Farmersville, Fowler, Fresno, Friant, Hanford, Ivanhoe, Kerman, Lemoore, Madera, and Visalia, Junk King in Fresno is here to help you get rid of your holiday trash in the most efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly way possible.

In this short article, we take a quick look at how much holiday waste we tend to accumulate and then offer a few tips for how you can make your holiday cleanup as easy and stress-free as possible.


A Few Statistics on Holiday Trash


According to one estimate, between the dates of Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, the total amount of waste produced in the United States increases by an estimated 25 percent. Put another way, our holiday celebrations lead directly to an extra one million tons of garbage each week around the country. Due to the stress on our fragile recycling system, the vast majority of that holiday trash gets sent directly to the landfill.

Where exactly does all that extra waste and junk come from? American consumers purchase over 38,000 miles of ribbon for decorating gifts each and every year. To put that number into perspective, the accepted measurement of the Earth’s circumference today is about 24,855 miles! Our holiday ribbon consumption is enough to turn the entire globe into a massive present. Also, the annual holiday shopping sprees lead to an additional $11 billion worth of packing material and about 227,000 miles of wrapping paper that is thrown away after Christmas morning each year. During the 2020 holiday season, Amazon delivered an incredible 1.5 billion packages, the majority of which we were sent to the landfill come January.

Despite the rise in the popularity of e-cards, we still send about one billion Christmas cards to the trash each year. Being that it takes one tree to make 3,000 Christmas cards, those billion-holiday cards is the equivalent of 33 million trees used each year. Furthermore, there are about 25 to 30 million real Christmas trees sold every year, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, and several million of those are hauled out to the curb the first week of the New Year.

The increase in waste isn’t just from decorations and holiday purchases but also comes from those huge holiday meals that no one can actually finish. According to The United States Department of Agriculture, Americans waste around 30-40 percent of the food supply, but that amount rises an additional 25 percent during the holidays due to supermarket waste and uneaten leftovers.

Top 3 Tips for Holiday Decluttering, Seasonal Cleanouts, and Reducing Holiday Waste


Everyone enjoys a festive holiday season, but might we be able to actually reduce our waste footprint during the holiday season, instead of sending more waste to our already overburdened landfill system? Here are three simple tips for how people in Fresno can decrease the amount of holiday waste that ends up in the local landfill.

  1.       Start a backyard compost bin: One of the simplest ways to reduce the amount of holiday junk you send to the landfill is by dealing with your organic waste at home. Building a simple backyard compost bin or pile can give you a convenient space for composting leftover holiday meals and even cardboard boxes. After a few months of decomposing, you will be left with rich, fertile compost that can be spread around your flower garden or fruit trees.
  2.       Get creative with your gift wrapping: Gift-giving is obviously at the center of the holiday spirit. With a bit of creativity and ingenuity, you can essentially eliminate your packaging waste by relying on recycled or upcycled materials. Old newspaper and comic strips, pretty cloth and textiles from old clothing you no longer wear, and even those paper bags from the grocery store that you have saved throughout the year can all be upcycled into innovative wrapping paper solutions.
  3.       Hire a holiday junk removal when the season ends: Lastly, when the holiday season ends and you still feel the need for a pretty thorough seasonal cleanout, consider hiring Junk King of Fresno to help you with your holiday decluttering needs. We are proud to be the top-rated company offering the most environmentally friendly junk disposal services. After years of being the leading junk removal company in Fresno and the surrounding communities, we have developed strong relationships with recycling companies, thrift stores, charities, and other similar organizations. This allows us to promise that at least 60 percent of the junk items that we haul away are either donated, recycled, or otherwise kept out of our local landfills. Furthermore, we abide by all relevant laws and legislation to ensure that electronic waste is properly recycled, and we NEVER resort to illegal dumping practices that could contaminate our community.
