Your average bed weighs about 150 pounds and your average couch weighs, get this, 350 pounds or more! That’s too much to lift on your own. You need professional furniture removal.
Even if you can lift that much weight with your friend, safely getting a piece of bulky furniture like that out of your home or apartment will be a real chore.
Why risk injury or doing some serious damage to the walls when you have a nearby furniture removal service like Junk King at your beck and call? Plus, Junk King is eco-friendly and cares about the planet as much as you do.
Junk King takes an average of eight full truckloads of recyclable material and refuse to its warehouse every day. About 60% of that material is recycled, reused, or donated.
That’s pretty impressive when you consider the fact that Junk King does foreclosure cleanouts, office cleanouts, and construction waste removal in addition to furniture removal.
It all goes to show that one person’s junk is another’s treasure and that just about anything can be repurposed into something useful down the line.
The Facts About Furniture Removal
Junk King will take darn near anything except for hazardous waste. That means that if you’re staring at a gargantuan credenza or bulky office desk that Junk King can break it down and take it away.
Junk King handles all aspects of furniture removal: breakdown, removal from your home or business site, haul off, and starting the reuse and recycling process. That’s furniture removal made easy.
Ottomans, futons, and huge bedstands are clearly candidates for professional furniture removal if you no longer have a use for those pieces.
Executive desks, cubicles, and wall units can also be broken down by professionals and safely hauled out of the workplace to make room for newer furniture and equipment.
Junk King takes side tables and coffee tables as well as outdoor patio furniture that’s overstayed its welcome on your back porch. Why put up with the sight any longer?
Take the Stress Out of Furniture Removal
The state of California has special rules about “illegal dumping,” which can be defined as simply leaving your old couch out on the curb without a license or proper scheduling with a waste management service.
Scheduling an appointment with Junk King, though, removes all of the stress from furniture removal and having to break down old furniture.
And when you use Junk King every effort will be made to ensure that your furniture is recycled, reused, or donated to reduce your carbon footprint.
Reusing, Donating, or Recycling Old Furniture
Household furniture comes in a lot of different forms from plastic and wood to fabric or other kinds of synthetic materials. You’ll want to figure out what your furniture is primarily made of before recycling it.
Of course, you could just rely on Junk King to make that call for you. But basically it’s not that hard to understand. Furniture with a metal base, for instance, might be recyclable. On the other hand, scrap metal dealers will fall over themselves to get at it.
The cottons, linens, and leather that went in to your couches and other pieces of furniture can likely be recycled (cottons and linens) or reused to make things like clothes (leather).
Other pieces of your old furniture can be recycled or reused. The wood in a bedstand, for example, can be recycled or reused to help prevent the growing problem of deforestation.
These are serious issues that require a conscientious approach. Junk King is America’s greenest junk removal company and committed to green furniture removal. Contact us for more information.
