Has junk taken over your life? If it has, you need to take back your life. You shouldn’t be inconvenienced by junk. Unfortunately, many people are. They have an old refrigerator, sagging couch, or other items that they want to get rid of but never quite get around to actually tossing them. Sometimes this is a matter of timing—city bulk trash services only come around once a month or so. If you don’t remember to put your old furniture and other large items out the day before, you’ll have to store them somewhere for another month.
If you plan on hauling the items to the city landfill yourself, time is an issue. You have to load the items up in a truck and drive them to the landfill, and if you’re really busy, finding time to do that can be difficult. You’ve got to arrange that trip during the landfill’s hours of operation, too, which only makes it more difficult.
There’s another solution: call Junk King of North Houston. Our team will get rid of all that junk quickly, and you don’t even have to get it out of your house. If you’ve got junk you haven’t been able to get rid of for months, give us a call. It’s time to get your life back.
Junk Takes Up Valuable Space
One of the biggest reasons to get rid of junk is because it takes up a lot of space. How much of your garage is dedicated to storing stuff you’ll never use again? What about your basement or attic? Maybe you’ve even shoved an old chair into your guest room or other space just to put it somewhere out of the way. Once it’s there, it’s often out of sight, out of mind. When you do remember that you need to arrange to get rid of it, you may not be in a position to actually take care of that task right away. This can go on for months or even years. If it’s something you’ve put in the corner of the basement, you may not even see it again until you move.
No matter where the item is, it’s taking up space that you could use for something else. If you can’t park a car in your garage because of all the stuff you have in there, take a good look at what you’re actually storing. How much of it is useful? If the answer is not much, then you have to ask yourself why you’re keeping it and what you could use that space for.
By getting rid of the junk you’re storing and organizing what’s left, you may have space to park your car in the garage. You might be able to move some things out of your house, freeing up more room in a closet or guest room. Having space tied up by junk can have more of an impact on your home than you might think, especially once you stop and add up just how much room you’ve lost to things you don’t ever plan on using again.
Get Rid of Safety Hazards
Old appliances and furniture can do more than just take up space—they can also be a safety hazard. Children, pets, and other animals can get trapped inside of old refrigerators or dryers if the doors aren’t removed or taped shut. Even then, these appliances can be dangerous because they look like great places to play.
Old furniture and other items may have sharp places on them that people could get cut on. Wooden furniture that has a broken section could cause someone to get a splinter under their skin, too. Depending on where and how you’ve placed the junk, it’s possible it could tip over and fall on someone. If you have to store old items before they can be hauled away, always think about safety concerns and do your best to ensure that your kids, pets, animals, and even other adults can’t easily get hurt.
Another hazard old furniture presents is that it makes a great home for pests and rodents. If you put an old chair in the garage, it could become home for mice or rats. Insects may also enjoy living under furniture where it’s dark and safe.
Junk Can Ruin Your Vision for Your Home
When we think about junk, we often think about furniture, appliances, and other items. However, Junk King Houston North also deals with structures that need to be removed. This type of junk, including old sheds, playhouses, decks, and patios, can affect your overall vision of your home. You may be very tired of looking out the window at what should be a serene, gorgeous backyard. Instead, all you see is the deck off your back door that’s slowly falling apart.
We take DIY construction debris and even yard trash, so you can take down all those old structures and give us a call to haul them away. Like with storing old appliances and furniture, these old structures can present a safety hazard. You don’t want anyone getting hurt, and with something like an old deck, it’s very possible. They could lean on the railing and fall when it breaks or even step on a rotting board and fall through. Animals may also make their homes in old sheds and playhouses or go under the deck. These animals could hurt your own pets or kids if startled.
Aesthetics also play a part here. You don’t want to see rotting and ugly wood when you look out your windows. If you’ve carefully curated your flowerbeds, trimmed your trees, and made your yard look amazing, you don’t want it ruined by an ugly building. If you have any structure that is unsafe, you need to take it down right away.
We Haul Off More than Just Junk
What do you do if you have some old furniture or an appliance that is still in good condition or works but you don’t need? Maybe you’ve replaced it with something nicer or have decided that there’s just no place for that old sleeper sofa or recliner? It’s not junk, but it has no place in your home.
There are some charities and other organizations you can call that will come pick up these items. Often, though, they are limited in what they can take. They may not have any space for additional furniture or simply not need what you have. In some cases, they may not have a vehicle large enough to pick up the items you’re offering. Some may also take weeks or even months to schedule the pickup.
Junk King may focus on hauling away junk, but that doesn’t mean we take it all to the landfill. We actually sort through everything we take and donate what we can. If you have items that are still in good condition, we’ll take them. You can let us know that you think they could be donated, but you don’t have to. We’ll check through everything once we get it back to our warehouse. We work with multiple organizations, too, so even if one doesn’t need anymore kitchen tables or sofas, another might.
In addition to donating usable items, we will also go through everything and pull out recyclable materials. We send these items off to local recycling centers. We’ll even take apart furniture and other items to recycle as many of the base materials as possible. Our donation and recycling services are included in every job we do at no extra cost to you.
