Benjamin Franklin once said: “For every minute spent on organizing, an hour is earned.” For many homeowners and business owners in Los Angeles, however, getting started on cleaning, organizing, and de-cluttering a messy and chaotic home or business might seem like an impossible feat. After years of accumulating “stuff,” raising children, attending to customers, and living a busy life, re-organizing our spaces is not easy to do.
In fact, a 2019 survey of more than 3,000 U.S. adults found that nearly 30 percent of adults in the United States had planned a de-cluttering project for that year. It´s probably safe to say that after spending the better part of a year inside our homes due to the lockdown and “shelter-in-place” order associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, a much higher percentage of people are now wanting to reclaim some of the space in their homes, apartments, or businesses.
If you are thinking about taking advantage of the warmer spring months to finally clean up your home or business, hiring a private junk removal company might make the process go significantly smoother. Junk King of Los Angeles is the top-rated junk removal company in the southern California region. We offer the most efficient and affordable way to deal with virtually any type of trash items that you need to get rid of, and are here to help you ensure that your spring cleaning and de-cluttering efforts are easy, efficient, and stress-free.
Why a Good Spring Cleaning Might Be Needed
According to researchers and historians, the origin of “spring cleaning” can be traced back to the Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of spring. In the country of Iran, most families celebrate “khaneh tekani”, which literally translates as “shaking the house” just before the Persian New Year arrives. Given the statistics on the number of people in the United States who feel their homes are disorderly and messy, a “shaking of the house” this spring might be high on your list of priorities.
Incredibly, over 10 percent of U.S. households (10.6 percent) rent a storage unit, amounting to 1.9 billion square feet of storage space. According to data from 2020, the national average cost for all unit sizes of storage space is $89.12 per month, meaning that a large percentage of the U.S. population is spending well over $1,000 each and every year to store their extra “stuff” that no longer fits inside their home.
Furthermore, around two-thirds of people who rent self-storage space live in single-family homes with a separate garage area. A third of those self-storage renters ALSO have a basement. This most likely means that many of these households have already filled up their garages and basements with mostly un-used junk, and are not spending extra cash to rent extra space. Lastly, 67 percent of people in one survey stated that they thought they could save up to 30 minutes each day if they were more organized and their spaces less cluttered, proving that Benjamin Franklin´s advice is still as relevant today as it was several centuries ago.
When our homes or business are messy, over-cluttered, or disorderly, people are generally less productive. Disorder and clutter also causes negative effects to our mental health, and often causes an extra economic burden by forcing us to rent even more storage space. Unfortunately, many people simply don’t know where to start when it comes to de-cluttering their lives and reclaiming the space in their homes or businesses. Fortunately, Junk King of Los Angeles is here to make it easy for homeowners, business owners, and other residents of southern California to reclaim your space in an efficient and environmentally-friendly way!
The Advantages of Hiring Junk King of Los Angeles for Home or Business Clean Up
In many cases, cleaning up your home or business will require getting rid of bulky and heavy junk items such as old furniture, broken-down appliances, and used electronics. Here at Junk King of Los Angeles, we make every effort to accommodate both our residential and commercial clients who might not be able to lift, carry, or haul heavy items on their own.
If you have an old refrigerator in your basement, but don’t have the time (or a strong enough back) to take it out to the curbside, we can help with the hard work of taking your old junk items out of your home or business in order to make your junk removal needs as easy and straightforward as possible.
Furthermore, our professional junk removal teams can also help you with some minor demolitions for heavy junk items you need to get off your property. From dilapidated old sheds, to broken down hot tubs, to unused playground sets, we can help you take apart and get rid of these bulky junk items no matter where they are on your property.
We also are proud to abide by all relevant legislation and ordinances regarding the proper and safe disposal of electronic devices. As part of the southern California community, we want to do our part to ensure that electronic waste (e-waste) does not end up contaminating our communities or our water sources. When you hire us for any type of junk removal service, you can rest assured that our junk removal teams will either donate or recycle ALL e-waste items that we pick up and haul away.
Junk King of Los Angeles is also proud to be one of the few junk removal companies in southern California that has an environmental ethic as the foundation of our business model. Whereas some junk removal companies simply haul the junk they pick up straight to the landfill, we believe wholeheartedly that everyone should play a part in caring for our environment. To that end, we are proud to say that we recycle, donate, or otherwise repurpose at least 60 percent of the junk items that we pick up. We know that California is facing a severe landfill crisis, and we want to do our part to ensure that the junk we pick up is given every possible opportunity to be reused or recycled.
Our junk removal teams carefully sort through the items we pick up to determine what can be donated, recycled, or otherwise repurposed. Over several years of working in the junk removal industry, we have developed a huge network of relationships with recycling companies, thrift stores, and other organizations that allow us to give your junk another “life.” That used couch or older TV that you want to get rid of might be a great addition to a new family looking to furnish their first home, and we go the extra mile to ensure that your older items can be donated to those in need.
Lastly, we are also one of the few junk removal companies who offer completely transparent and honest pricing mechanisms. For larger jobs, we offer free, on-site pricing, which will allows us to give you an accurate and exact price estimate for the job. We may even be able to haul away your junk the same day we give you the on-site price estimate. You can also call us at 1-888-888-JUNK to live chat with our highly trained customer service representatives. For smaller junk removal services, you can take a photo of the items you need removed and text us at 737-888-5865. We will text you back an estimate. Lastly, for a pricing estimate online, simply click the “Pricing” tab in the navigation above, scroll to pricing estimator, enter your zip code, and choose estimate “By List Item” or “By Truckload.”
