Chico Furniture Buying & Disposal Guide

Could you ever imagine spending any time in your living room without a sofa? For many families the sofa is kind of an island unto itself. This is where we spend a lot of our time watching television, working on homework or trying to solve the latest crossword puzzle. A sofa needs to be comfortable and inviting. Because the sofa in a family room is probably one of the most overused pieces of furniture in your home it might be time to replace that item. If you’re at that point, then it might be best to think about some of the potential “furniture mistakes” you made in the past. These weren’t intentional mistakes; they were just slipups with regard to buying the best type of furniture for your current living situation.
For instance, nothing can beat the feel of leather upholstery. It’s why high-end automobile manufacturers use leather to entice their drivers. A leather sofa can certainly be an inviting oasis at the end of a hard day. But that same leather sofa can also be the cause of a lot of heartache especially if you add youngsters and pets to the family equation. Now that leather sofa will become a veritable battle zone as you try desperately to keep those alien forces away from your nice clean leather. That is simply going to end up being a losing battle! Perhaps that leather sofa should now be retired because it has even been ruined beyond repair. Your next sofa should be one made of comfortable but durable and stain resistant material.
Buying a new sofa could also provide you with the opportunity to get a sleeper sofa. This could be an issue if your extended family has truly become extended. If you’re finding that you have overnight guests and you want to make them comfortable than a sleeper sofa could be just the right ticket. The bigger the room the better off you’ll be in terms of unfolding a sleeper sofa. But you also want to make sure that sofa is equally comfortable in its natural state as a couch.
Another major furniture purchase could be a new bed. We are not talking about the mattress but the bed frame itself. Again this goes to the issue of space and comfort. Some bed buyers develop a form of buyer’s remorse when they have their new bed set up and realize it’s hard to get in and out of. Oversized bed frames and headboards can overpower room. You definitely want to take your time with this purchase to make sure you get it right. Keep in mind that next to the sofa you’ll spend most of your time in your bed.
After picking out your new furniture in the Chico or Butte County, you should make arrangements to have your old furniture taken away by professional junk haulers like Junk King Gold Country. Although it might seem harsh to call your furniture junk that exactly what it has become the moment you decide to get rid of it. Put that thought out of your mind and let professional movers show up at the scheduled appointment and take it away. All you really need to focus on is how much fun you’ll be having with your new furniture.

Chico and Gold Country Junk Recycling

As fans of Disney’s popular film “The Lion King” know the circle of life refers to a son taking over the responsibilities of his father. It’s easy to see that play out in royalty whether that’s in Westminster Abby or the jungle! But that so-called circle of life can also apply to many other aspects of our own lives especially with the things we choose to surround ourselves with – namely all of our “stuff.”
At one point our stuff began as a purchase aimed towards improving the quality of our life. Things like furniture, televisions, clothing and appliances would definitely fall into this category. We need someplace to sit comfortably in our Gold Country, CA homes so we buy a sofa. We want to be entertained by watching television so we buy a new TV. We’ve got to cook and store our food so we buy a stove and refrigerator. At some point anyone of those items could wear out and need replacing. If all goes according to plan we will just be able to swap out the old for the new. That in and of itself is a circle of life moment. However, when you get into the issue of recycling that circle of life takes on a whole new meaning.
Everything we have in our home once started out as raw material. You have to go back to the forests where the trees grew that became wood that was needed to build the furniture and walls to understand this circle of life. The same can be said for the iron ore used to make the steel and metal that goes into building a television. There’s also all kinds of chemical compounds used in the manufacturing of plastics that are all over our home. When you recycle anything, whether it’s a single plastic bottle or your sofa, you are essentially breaking down those items to their raw material. That raw material is then cleaned up and repurposed into a new item. Basically this could mean that the plastic bottle you’re drinking a soda out of was once several dozen other plastic bottles. And when you throw that away and it gets recycled it will go on to be even more plastic bottles. So yes, your soda bottle will live forever!
What does any of this have to do with junk recycling? A lot actually. When it is time for you to get rid of the junk that is cluttering up your home you don’t have to necessarily assume it has to end up in a landfill. A large percentage of everything you throw away can be recycled if it is handled properly by the right kind of junk haulers like Junk King Gold Country. This means that your furniture can be recycled at one facility near Chico while you’re kitchen appliances can be diverted to another recycling center closer to West Sacramento. There will even be a third one that will handle all your electronic waste out in Yuba County. While it might seem like a hassle to try and figure out where to take your junk you won’t have to worry about that when you bring in the pros. They know where to recycle all you have to worry about is what you want to recycle and take back the circle of life!
