Back to School Junk Removal In Davis CA

Back to School is an exciting time whether you’re a first grader or a college freshman. However, it is those college bound students that retailers like the most. That’s because they spend around $850 per student just to get their dorm rooms outfitted for the fall. A popular stop for the coeds is IKEA. Hans Greenawalt, the marketing specialist for IKEA, offers up some helpful guidance for returning students.

“In a lot of those rooms, you don’t necessarily have the proper lighting for your study habits,”  Greenawalt says. “IKEA offers a variety of table lamps, clamp spotlights and hanging lamps. When you’re studying until 4 a.m., your roommate will thank you for remembering to buy a small lamp that you can keep on your side of the room.”

You also have to be mindful of the room measurements. “You’re sharing the room with another person,” says Jane Heaton, associate director of housing and residential life at California State University, Sacramento. “You don’t want to bring everything under the sun.” In fact, the typical CSUS dorm room measures out at about 11 feet by 13 feet. At that one campus alone about 1,000 new students will be taking up residence in those dorms. That’s a lot of IKEA!

After you’ve shipped your college student off, it might be time to reassess the space in your home. You don’t have to clean out your kid’s room (yet!) but you could do with a de-cluttering sweep as a way to get rid of a lot of unwanted items. Maybe your kid has outgrown certain pieces of furniture. Maybe they are moving on to their own apartment. Either way you could end up with a truckload of junk to toss out and that truck should belong to Junk King Gold Country.

These are the junk removal experts working hard all throughout Davis, California and the rest of Gold Country to make sure homeowners, apartment renters and landlords can toss out the big stuff.

Chico and Davis Trash Outs

The number one reason to clean out all the trash from your home and backyard is because it’s going to make you feel a lot better. The number two reason could be crawling around your property right now. That would be ants. In California the most common ant that pops up in homes and picnics is the Argentine worker ant. These are dark colored ants without a sting. They also have no natural enemies which means unlike other bugs, ants are free to do as they please unless you put a stop to them.

You’ll often find ant nests in moist soil or under trash on sidewalks and driveways. They’ll also go as far as 100 feet away from their nest to dine out. If they make their way into your home, they’re going to keep coming back until you seal up their entryway or get rid of their food source. For the ant, that food source would be whatever trash you’ve got laying around that might have some sweet stuff on it. Even if you keep your home clean of crumbs, those ants could still be setting up shop in a comfy box in your garage or under a pile of wood in your backyard. If you want to keep the ants away, then it’s time to take out the trash and Junk King Gold Country can show you the way.

Getting rid of weekly kitchen trash is simple as long as you get the trash to the curb in time for a pickup! But there is a lot more trash that could be piling up around you home and yards which can not only attract ants but all kinds of other vermin. Do you want to take that risk? You don’t have to when you’ve got Junk King Gold Country working on your side.

They provide you with a two-man team who will be trained in how to lift, carry and haul away everything from an old sofa to an unused hot tub.

Get rid of your junk today with the help of Junk King.

Davis California Junk Removal

Like it or not, we’re often in a hurry. Whether that means running to work, getting the kids off to school or making sure we get to “Iron Man 3″ on time, life is full of distractions. Those distractions can often slow us down just when we need to speed up. It’s usually in those rushed moments when accidents happen. That’s why we all need to take a deep breath and approach those situations with calmness. That especially holds true for driving. With the other things like cleaning the home or getting a house ready for sale, it pays to be on time.

Recently, Terri O. from West Sacramento had the need for a fast cleanup. Lucky for her that Junk King Gold Country was just a phone call away. “When I was faced with a time sensitive situation that desperately needed a quick hauling job Junk King was my hero! I moved my aunt out of her house two days before the sale was supposed to close,” she writes in her Yelp review. “She said she had all the clean up handled. I showed up to meet with the realtor and the place had trash and broken furniture piled up some 6 ‘ high on the driveway and a dilapidated stuffed storage room and cluttered backyard to boot. The realtor gave me 24 hours. I called Junk King, and with only 16 hours’ notice they showed up and made all of the garbage disappear and for a price more reasonable than I could get a neighborhood maintenance man to do it for. They were real pros!”

What’s amazing is that Junk King often works that fast even when your personal “clock” isn’t ticking. In other words, you can call them up get an estimate and your junk removed all in the same day. For that to happen you might try early in the week or away from the first of the month (moving day!) if your schedule is flexible.

One way to know whether or not a business is successful is if they have repeat customers. You’re not going to go back if you didn’t get what you paid for. Clearly, Junk King Gold Country is a success here.

L.S.  from Diamond Springs explains, “I have used Junk King three times and found the crew extremely helpful. They arrived on time, were organized and courteous and did exactly what I asked them to. I was surprised at how efficiently and quickly they worked to remove the debris (which included two decrepit tree houses, a broken swing set and huge piles of branches and underbrush) from my yard. They were also good at loading the truck in a way that they could squeeze as much stuff on it as possible so I could get more hauled away for my money. It would have been impossible to do what they did by myself and I am grateful for how beautiful my yard looks now.”

What kind of job do you have for Junk King Gold Country? As you can see, no job is too big or too small or too fast!

Lawn Mower Disposal in Chico California

In lawn mowing circles, there is a never ending debate as to whether it is more efficient to mow in rows or spirals. This being the age of “too much free time” some math geeks and puzzle makers got together to put the debate to the test. Here’s what they came up with: “On a square 16-foot by 16-foot lawn, both the spiral and row techniques take a total of 30 turns; 14 left and 16 right for the rows, and 30 right turns for the spiral.

One could argue that to mow in rows, there are half as many turns—when you get to the end of a row you make two 90-degree turns, which you could also count as a single 180-degree turn. Still, the total number of angular degrees you turn is in either case is the same.” Now that the debate has been settled it’s time to spray on the sunscreen and get to mowing.

If you’ve got a big property then a rider mower is the best way to cut the grass. It’s also the most fun! As for the push-type of mower, you might want to consider tossing out the old gas guzzler for a rechargeable electric model. You can even go with the always eco-friendly rotary tumbler. That’s more pushing work for you but in turn you’ve be getting a great aerobic workout every time you cut the grass.

No matter which type of model you prefer you should really only have one lawn mower on your property. A second mower that is old, rusty and not working is nothing to be hanging onto. The same could be said for luggage that is busted, furniture that isn’t used or appliances that you’ve replaced. Add to that old the outdate computers, copiers and monitors and suddenly you’ve found yourself surrounded by junk. How did that happen? Relax. We’ve all got piles of stuff we should toss out but just don’t have the chance. Now Junk King Gold Country can ride to the rescue and give you the opportunity to turn your home into a complete junk free zone.

After you’ve given a Junk King supervisor the chance to estimate how much space your junk will take up on their truck, you can set up a pickup appointment. That supervisor needs to see your junk first because that’s how they’ll be charging you: by the amount of space your junk will take up on the truck. On the day of the removal, that’s the price you’ll be paying. No extras. The Junk King Gold Country crew will cart off all your stuff on the back of the truck they provide. You can help by piling everything in your driveway or you can leave it right where it is.

All the Junk King crew cares about is getting all of your clutter out! Call them today to find out how they can remove your old lawn mower and all the rest of your junk.

Hoarder Cleanup Help In Chico California

What kind of junk are you hanging onto? The answer to that question could determine whether or not you can be classified as an official hoarder. Someone with compulsive hoarding issues will keep things like junk mail, magazines and newspapers. They’ll also hand onto things they might think they’ll use for crafts. The problem is none of those periodicals every get read and none of those crafts ever get made. The same issue comes up around clothes that are never worn, sporting goods never used and even appliances that are broken but not disposed of.

There there is the concern of not using space in your home for its intended purpose. For instance, is there so much junk on your bed that you can’t even sleep on it anymore? Is your kitchen so cluttered that you can’t cook in there? Is the dining room table so full of stuff that you can fit a plate of food? When clutter gets this bad, you could start isolating yourself from your friends because you’re too embarrassed to have anyone come over.

This is especially hard on kids who want to have friends to come over to play or study with. Things go to the extreme when something breaks down but you don’t want a repairman to come over because of the clutter. Then there is the safety risk for fire or mold that is an issue. Add up all of those problems and you could be facing a serious hoarding situation. If you’re ready to make a break with all of that trash, then Junk King  Gold Country is standing by to lend a hand.

Spring Cleaning Tips in Gold County California

How close are you to living in a “hoarder’s house?” We’ve all seen those reality shows where some folks have been collecting junk for years without throwing anything away. Hopefully it hasn’t gotten as bad for you but that doesn’t mean you should skip on the spring-cleaning. A good spring cleaning project goes beyond the typical weekly dusting or mopping. This is the time to pull the furniture from the walls and dig in deep to remove every spec of dirt and dust. This is the time to vacuum light fixtures, wipe down outlets and clean out windowsills. To get it done right is a big undertaking and it all comes down to a matter of attitude. Embrace that you want this done and realize that it’s not the end of the world to dedicate a Saturday morning to the effort.

If you’re a person who works better with lists then use those for spring-cleaning. First, make a list of all the cleaning supplies you’ll need. You don’t want to be running back and forth to the grocery store once you start cleaning. It will also be helpful to have a little carrying bin to cart around those supplies from room to room. This will make things go a lot quicker. After you do the shopping list, walk through every room and make a list of what needs to be cleaned. Take a floor to ceiling approach. For added fun you can probably write that list on your iPad and check it off as you go with a swipe of the finger.

You might discover that part of your list is “Throw out this or that.” With old magazines or junk mail that’s easy but what about bigger items you want to toss out? Things like an old piano that nobody uses or a sofa that has seen better days won’t be so easily to get rid of on your own. When you’ve got oversized items to toss out then Junk King Gold Country is the only call you need to make.

Junk King recycles more of what they collect than any other removal service. It’s all part of the Junk King experience. Put them to work for your spring-cleaning.

New Year’s Resolution 2013 Junk King Gold Country California

Most New Year’s resolutions revolve around self-improvement plans. Nothing wrong with that. But what if you could supplement your self-improvement to-do list by adding a few resolutions to save money around the home? There are some very simple fixes your could implement starting today.

First up, turn off the lights. No, not the ones you’re using to read this article but the ones that are still burning in the room you just left. There’s no reason to keep lights on in rooms when you’re home. If you like coming home with the lights on, then consider adding a timer to a lamp or two so you don’t have to keep those lights on all through the day.

When you do leave the house for an extended period of time be sure to turn off the air conditioner. At night you should crank down the heat. Why keep your home cool when you’re not there? And when it gets colder at night your thermostat will be working overtime to compensate. Dial it back and add a blanket to the bed and watch your energy bills drop.

As for your water bill you should be using low-flow showerheads and cutting back on watering the lawn so much. And always wait for your dishwasher and washing machine to be fully loaded before running them.

Another home resolution you could make and easily keep is to finally get rid of all those bulky items you’ve been hanging onto. Hiring Junk King of Gold Country, CA will help you cart those things out of your home with very little effort on your part.

Chico Christmas Tree and Holiday Junk Removal

A local Chico business got into the Christmas spirit by helping a group of Trappist Monks restore their beloved abbey and its all thanks to beer. The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company of Chico helped raise millions of dollars for the rebuilding effort. All of this goes back to the 1930s when William Randolph Hearst transported a former Trappist monastery all the way from Spain, brick by brick. He was going to build himself a fancy swimming pool but that plan got scrapped and Hearst donated the stones to the city of San Francisco. Those stones sat in Golden Gate Park for over 60 years until a local chapter of the same Trappist order decided to take on the project. Sierra Brewing stepped up and the monks we able to complete the first building of the reconstruction in time for the holidays. It just shows you want a local business can do to help out.
