Back to School Junk Removal In Houston

back to school junk removalThe third annual Back-to-School fest was held at the University of Houston and 25,000 students and parents showed up for the fun. This was an event for students heading into kindergarten through fifth grade. It was a day where they can get caught up on their immunizations, get a backpack full of school supplies and find out about many of the after school programs available throughout Houston. Best of all, everything was free! This was a perfect way to start the new school year. To keep the momentum of “fresh starts” going, you might want to think about clearing your home of all that unnecessary junk that has been taking up space. Here is where Junk King Houston can become your best back to school partner.

Junk King is the professional junk hauling service that has been helping homeowners and business owners all around Houston clear out the clutter of their lives. When it comes to cleaning out your home you could be taking some proactive steps to create an environment that will help your kids with their homework. Maybe you can create a space in a spare room or in the family room for them to study. This could mean putting in a small desk with a computer hookup. The idea is to keep them out of their room with all its distractions. In other words, you’ want to create a homework zone and when they are in the zone that’s what they need to focus on.

Every removal appointment set up by Junk King comes complete with a hard working two-man crew and a huge moving truck. That’s all you really need to get rid of anything you’re throwing out. The Junk King crew are experts at lifting heavy objects like sofas, tables and bedroom sets. They’ve also been known to move the occasional piano and hot tub. Yes, there isn’t anything that can put on the back of their truck to dispose of.

Unlike other so-called haulers, you won’t be paying dumping fees or labor costs. You’re only going to be charged a single flat rate based on how much space your junk takes up on the back of the truck. Make that call to Junk King Houston today and watch how fast your junk will disappear.

Furniture Pick Up in Houston

Houston Furniture PickupIf you’re concerned about the environment the best thing you could do is never throw anything away. Of course, that is impossible. But there is a lot to be said for reusing items. This is especially true when it comes to furniture. If you can find a way to give your tables, chairs and sofas a “new lease on life” then you’ll be taking a big chunk out of your carbon footprint. That’s what one local Houston business owner is all about.

“The greenest thing to do is to not buy something new and instead to find new ways to use what you have,” says Jeff Kaplan. He is the founder of the housewares stores New Living and the Green Painter and they’re all about making something old new again. They’ve even begun to offer classes calls Finishing School which teachers folks how to refinish furniture.

“Instead of building furniture, we’re buying vintage pieces off garage sales and Craigslist and have community of artisans refinishing them in-house with nontoxic finishes. Instead of a custom table for $3,000, we can offer a refurbished model for $800,” Kaplan says. “The Finishing School classes are a really cool way to bring it home. Instead of making it about chemicals, we want to make it about making cool things as well as making spaces that are healthier and improve quality of life.”

That actually sounds like it could be a fun DIY project. Then again, do you really want to spend your free time on a weekend fixing up a sofa? Perhaps not but you still need a new sofa. Enter Junk King Houston. Once you’ve gone shopping and found a new couch to your liking you’ll need to get rid of the old one. Leave that job to Junk King. They’ll have that old sofa picked up and carted off in no time. Here’s the added bonus with Junk King: You could end up having your sofa refurbished anyway. That’s because Junk King makes it a point to recycle or donate the vast majority of everything they collect. With furniture that usually means dropping off those pieces to a local Houston charity that specializes in refurbishing. They’ll fix up that sofa or loveseat then make sure it’s donated to a family in need. Even if you think nobody would want your old couch, it might just need a little TLC to be like new again.
