Sometimes a business needs a refresh or a full remodel to breathe some life back into it. Even large corporations with offices or stores across the country change things up every now and then. Remodeling your business can be a large task, though, even if you’re a small boutique or office. While you can put a new coat of paint on the walls and move some furniture around, that’s more of a refresh instead of a remodel. Remodels often involve removing flooring and walls, replacing displays and shelving, and much more, which is why debris removal is so important.
If you’re doing a refresh, you may not create a lot of trash. Doing a remodel, though, is probably going to leave you with a lot more debris than you expected. You’ve got to do something with all of this trash. One of the best solutions is to call Junk King Minneapolis. Our crew can quickly and easily haul away any garbage you have, including construction debris, old furniture, and old appliances. Whether you’re remodeling your own business or are in the business of doing remodels, Junk King is here for you.
Refresh or Remodel?
The first question to ask yourself is how much work do you want to do? Sometimes your answer is dictated by the condition of your office or workspace. If you’ve had water damage or are buying an older building to convert into your business space, you may not have a choice. Another reason to do a full remodel is if the space just isn’t working for you the way it is now. For example, if you have a small waiting room that is always crowded, it might be time to knock out a few walls and enlarge the space.
On the other hand, if the space is working for you but the place is starting to look a little dull, it might be time for a refresh. This does include painting, but it could also include new flooring, new furniture, and new lighting. A refresh is like a breath of fresh air, making your space look brand new without doing anything too involved.
Which option is right for you depends on what you need. If you do a refresh on a space that isn’t working for you, no amount of new paint will help improve how it functions. Of course, if you spend a lot of money to remodel a space that is working, you may be wasting money.
One way to help you determine if the space works is to poll your employees and even your customers. Find out what works and what doesn’t. Where do things seem to bottleneck? Are there spaces you rarely, if ever, use? Do you have some rooms devoted to storing junk? With that last one, Junk King can help you recover that space. Once we’ve cleaned out your trash, you might find that you actually have all the space you need.
Be Careful DIYing it
Another question business owners will need to decide is if they want to DIY some of these changes or if they want to call in a professional. DIY remodels can be tempting because people think they save money, but they often end up costing much more. Business owners who don’t know what they’re doing can cause a great amount of damage and have to spend a lot more just to rebuild their office.
If you’re doing anything with plumbing, electrical, or gas lines, you must hire a professional. If anything is done incorrectly, it can put everyone in and around your office in danger. Improper wiring could start an electrical fire, while a gas leak could cause the whole building to explode. Never attempt to DIY any of that. Another area where you should hire a professional is when you’re removing walls. You want to make certain the walls you want to take down are not load-bearing. If they are and you remove them, you may cause the entire roof to sag.
Either Way, You’re Going to Have Debris
Whether you do it yourself, hire a contractor, or are a construction crew, there’s going to be debris to get rid of. If you do a lot of work, you’ll typically have a lot of trash. Of course, sometimes the amount of work you do isn’t proportionate to the amount of trash created. If you decide to remove the carpet in your office and replace it with luxury vinyl planks, you could find that there are layers of flooring under the carpet. You may have to remove all of this old flooring. You may also find damaged subflooring that has to be removed and replaced. You never really know what a remodel is going to involve until you start opening walls and ripping up flooring.
As this debris builds up, you’re going to need someone to come haul it away. Junk King will take just about all types of construction debris except hazardous waste. This includes old cabinets, flooring, fixtures, and more. Most of this debris is created in the first few days of the project during demolition. You’ll end up with piles of debris, some of which may be in your way. Having us come in and clean it all out gives you a good starting place to rebuild.
While much of the trash may come from removing old stuff, you’re still going to create some additional garbage as you go. You’ll have the packaging your materials came in as well as the leftover materials from cutting pieces to fit. You may also create more demolition debris if you discover that you have to make additional changes or upgrades. This debris usually just piles up. That’s fine if you have a spot for it.
We Work with Businesses that Do Renovations
If you own a construction company, window installation crew, roofing business, or other company that’s in the construction industry, we’ll partner with you, too. Many companies that handle renovations for businesses subcontract Junk King to deal with all of the debris. We provide the same fast, reliable junk hauling services for these crews as we do for homeowners, landlords, and business owners. If you’d like to bring Junk King in as your debris hauling expert, please contact us today.
Even a Refresh Can Include Debris
If you decide to just do some cosmetic changes, you may not anticipate having a lot of trash. However, if you decide to replace any of your current furniture, you’re going to need to do something with the old stuff. This is another place where Junk King can help. We take office furniture of all types, including chairs, desks, filing cabinets, waiting room furniture, and much more. We’ll also haul away any old computer equipment you have, including printers and copy machines.
We know you may be hesitant to get rid of some of this furniture because it’s still in fairly good condition. You may be tempted to store it in a backroom or extra office, but you do need to ask yourself if that’s really the best use of the space. Will you ever use this furniture again? If not, why keep it? You could ask your employees if they want any of it. However, if you have a lot of old stuff, you may still end up with a lot of desks, chairs, and other things. You may consider selling some of it, too, but that’s not always quite as easy as it may seem.
Junk King will take all of this old office furniture, but we won’t go straight to the landfill with it. Instead, if it’s still in good condition, we’ll donate it to local charities. We’ve partnered with a number of different organizations in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas to help those in need. They will see to it that anything you have that’s still usable gets to people who can use it.
We Also Recycle
In addition to redirecting usable items away from the landfill, we also pass on anything that can be recycled to the appropriate recycling facility. Our goal is to redirect as much as possible from the landfill. In addition to donating and recycling, we also work closely with transfer stations that use junk as fuel to generate energy. At the end of the day, very little of what we actually pick up goes into the landfill.
Becoming a B2B Partner with Junk King
We work with many businesses in the Minneapolis area, and we would love to work with your company, too. Junk King partners with companies of all sizes, including small businesses and startups. You may only need us to come once a year during your annual cleanout, and that’s fine. On the other hand, if you’re a construction company and want to form a partnership, we’re happy to put you on our schedule. We will provide you with an estimate before every job that includes all fees and charges. We firmly believe in transparent pricing and will gladly answer any questions you might have.
Whether you need us regularly or just after a remodel, Junk King Minneapolis is here for you. Reach out today at 1-888-888-JUNK to discuss how we can help support your business.
