Set Up A Decluttering Session For Back-To-School

Back to school is the time when everything changes in the house. Everyone’s schedule needs to be rearranged to accommodate drop-offs and pickups. There’s also a lot of shopping for school supplies and new outfits to wear. It takes a few weeks to adjust but then everyone gets into the groove again and begins to count down the days to the next holiday!

One thing that can help with back-to-school around your house is to set up a decluttering session with Junk King North Texas. These are the junk hauling professionals that can clear away any amount of accumulated clutter in your home. This kind of decluttering session can positively impact the entire house.

Start At the Closets

When deciding what you can have the Junk King team haul away, you should start in the closets. No doubt, your kids have outgrown a lot of their outfits. And you probably bought some new things for the school year. That means you need to make room in the closets. The less clutter in those closets, the easier it will be to find what you’re looking for on school mornings.

You might want to set up a designated area to complete the homework. That can involve removing some old furniture to make room for a desk. Now you can see where working with Junk King can make a big difference. The two-person crew assigned to your Junk King decluttering session will be able to pick up all that stuff and have it quickly cleared from the home.

When Junk King removes items from a home, that stuff doesn’t automatically end up at the landfill. A lot of the clothing you are getting rid of can be dropped off at a local charity. That happens as part of Junk King’s removal service.

A decluttering session with Junk King North Texas is the perfect way to start the school year off right. Book that session today.

Partner Up With Junk King To Recycle Your Rubbish

When you hire Junk King North Texas to clear out the rubbish from your property, you are guaranteed that the job will be done quickly and at a great rate. Once all that junk is loaded onto the back of the Junk King truck, you do not have to give it a second thought.

However, you would appreciate the fact that Junk King strives to recycle most of what they collect. That happens automatically as part of their complete junk removal service. It is an added benefit to hiring Junk King to clear away your unwanted rubbish. This is one of the many reasons why Junk King is the area’s leading professional junk hauling service.

No Need to Separate

Before setting up your appointment with Junk King, you will spend time deciding what you want to get rid of. You do not have to separate the rubbish into recyclable piles. The Junk King crews have all been trained to spot those items that can be designated for recycling. That process will happen long after the Junk King crew leaves your property with your unwanted stuff.

Part of that recycling can include making drop-offs to local charities. That is where old clothing, household goods, and furniture can be repurposed for use again.

The cost for Junk King service is always determined by how everything fits onto the truck. The Junk King crews can look over any amount of stuff and know exactly how it will fit on the truck. That is when they will provide you with an estimate that covers all the labor, transportation, and those drop-offs. This is also a guaranteed price. Junk King will match the cost of any competitor for the same amount of stuff. Often, they will even beat that price!

Getting rid of your junk with Junk King North Texas also means recycling it. Call to book your removal session today.


Demolition for Play Structures and Other Backyard Buildings

Kids love forts, playhouses, swing sets, and other little buildings they can call their own. You’ll find many different options for these backyard buildings out there. Some are pre-assembled, while others may come as kits you put together. If you’re handy, you can even find blueprints to create and build your own. You could modify these plans and build a truly unique playhouse that your kids will love. 


What happens to that playhouse when your kids outgrow it? It’s likely going to sit in your backyard for years. It can become a home for stray animals and other pests, and the weather may take its toll on the structure. It will eventually become an eyesore and a hazard. When that happens, it’s time to take the playhouse down. Here are some tips for demolishing an old structure like this plus other backyard buildings such as sheds, greenhouses, swing sets, doghouses, and decks.

Do You Want to Demolish the Play Structure?


The first thing to consider is whether or not you actually want to demolish the play structure. Even if your kids don’t really use their playhouse much, you might want to keep it. You may have younger children who will use it when they get a little older. You might have nieces or nephews who love to play in it when they’re visiting, or there may be the possibility of grandchildren in the future. If the building is still in great condition, you may not be in a hurry to take it down. 


However, the years to come may not be kind to it. If your backyard buildings are in good condition and you don’t want to demolish them any time soon, you need to take steps to keep them in good shape. Just like your shed or other building, you should regularly inspect the playhouse for signs of damage and make repairs when needed. You can include it in your regular spring cleaning and winterization to-do lists to make it less likely that you’ll forget about it. 


When doing maintenance on the structure, you’ll want to inspect the walls and roof from the inside and outside. Sweep out the interior, check the windows and door for signs of wear and damage, and check the floor. Wash down the exterior, and if the interior needs it, give it a good cleaning as well. Leave the door and windows open for a few hours to help air it out, too. You’ll need some ventilation through the playhouse to help keep moisture from building up inside, so you may want to install a vent near the roof. 


If you didn’t do it when you built the playhouse, be sure to apply a sealant to the wood used to help protect it from moisture and insects. Check for signs of termite damage if the wood is untreated. 


Swing sets are often made out of metal, and that can rust over time. Inspect the joints carefully for rust and other damage. Tighten the screws, too, and replace any chains or rope that appears damaged. You don’t want the swing breaking when someone is using it. 


Tips for Demolishing the Building


If you know you won’t need the playhouse any longer or if it’s clearly beyond repair, it’s time to take it down. You’ll want to do so carefully so you don’t get hurt. If it’s easy to disassemble, you should carefully do that. For example, if you purchased a swing set that has a playhouse attached to it, you can likely unscrew parts of the structure and take it down that way. This is the best option if it’s possible because you won’t have any debris. The parts shouldn’t have jagged edges or other dangers.


However, if you built the structure and it’s fairly solid, you’re going to have to knock it down. First, remove any glass from the windows. You don’t want to shatter the glass. Shards could in up in your yard and later cause someone to get cut. Once that’s done, disassemble what you can. You can likely take the door off, and you may be able to easily remove the roof.


Once all of that’s done, you’ll probably need to get out a saw. You can cut the sides down into sections that are easy to handle. Carefully set each section aside as its cut, making sure that any nails or other sharp areas are pointed downward or placed in such a way that no one will get hurt on them. 

Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

What to do with the Debris


Once you’ve taken down the structure, what do you do with the debris? If it’s in really bad condition, you likely can’t reuse much, if any, of the materials. In that case, there’s really only one solution: get rid of it. Unfortunately, most cities will not allow you to put construction debris in your garbage bins. Chances are, you wouldn’t be able to fit this debris in your trash bins anyway. You may be able to put some of it out for bulk garbage pickup, but again, some cities don’t allow anything that falls under the category of construction debris to be set out for pickup. 


You could try to haul the trash to the landfill yourself, but that’s not always easy. If you don’t have a vehicle that can hold it all at once, you may have to make multiple trips. If the pieces are too large, you may not be able to get them in your vehicle at all. You then have to try to find someone who will let you borrow their truck. 


The easiest solution is to call a Junk King North Texas. We’re a professional junk hauling service that can quickly and safely remove the debris from your old playhouse, swing set, or other play structure. Our team will do all of the heavy lifting, so you don’t even need to bring the debris to the front of the house. Just show us what you want hauled away, and we will take care of the rest.

Don’t Stop with Your Backyard Debris


Junk King can haul away more than just your old playhouse and swing set. We’re a full-service junk removal company, which means we can take just about anything. While you’re demolishing old structures in your backyard, why not take the time to clean out your shed, garage, basement, and closets? We can haul away any old furniture, broken appliances, and other garbage you have. In fact, about the only thing we can’t deal with is hazardous waste. We can even take bushes and trees that you’ve removed and debris from DIY home remodels.


Think of all the extra space you could have if you didn’t have junk taking up space. Even if it’s something as simple as an old chair in the corner of the garage or a table with a broken leg in the basement, it’s still taking up room that you could use for something else. Let us get rid of it for you while we’re hauling away other trash.


We Recycle Anything We Can


We hate sending stuff to the landfill. So much goes into the dump that can harm the environment, but Junk King is dedicated to donating and recycling whatever possible. While your demolished playhouse or old swing set may not be something we can donate, any furniture you have that’s still in good condition is. We’ll ensure it gets to one of our partner organizations so it can be used by those in need.


For things that can’t be used any longer, the next step in our process is to determine if they can be recycled. If they can be, we send them off to a local recycling center. Treated wood, unfortunately, often can’t be recycled. However, glass from windows can be, as can any metal from swing sets or plastic from plastic playhouses. We will even dismantle items made of multiple materials just to get the recyclable parts out. 


You don’t have to pay extra for this, either. We sort every truck into donatable items, recyclables, and things that, unfortunately, do end up in the landfill. At the end of the day, we typically can donate or recycle 70% or more of everything we pick up, and we’re working to improve that number all the time.

Senior Moving and Retirement Guide

Have you just retired and are ready to enjoy the rest of your years free of the daily grind? Maybe you’ve decided you’re in your “golden years” and are ready to take it easy. Perhaps it’s time to escape the harsh winters and live somewhere warm and comfortable. Retiring can open a whole new world of adventures for you if you’re willing to embrace them. Some of these adventures may mean moving, though. Is that a step you’re ready to take? If so, this guide will help you embrace your retirement and prepare to move.


Changes that Come with Retirement


Of course, many changes come when you retire from your job in North Texas. Suddenly, your days are wide open. You don’t have to get up and spend eight hours or more at the office or other job site. For many, this can be a little disorienting at first. You may not know what to do with your time. You may feel listless, bored, and uncertain. 


These are all valid feelings, but you don’t have to let them take over your life. Now is the perfect time to embrace your hobbies or pick up new ones. You can reconnect with friends or make new friends. If you’re married, retirement is the perfect time to rekindle some of your romance. Go out on lunch dates, visit the park, or enjoy doing mundane tasks like shopping together. You’ll find that there are plenty of things you can do during the day, even if it doesn’t seem like it at first.


You’ve spent most of your life working to enrich the various companies you’ve worked for. Now, in your retirement, it’s time to enrich yourself. Many seniors fall back on the old saying of “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” but who says that’s true? Why not learn something new now that you have the time? Pick up an instrument, learn to paint, or take classes in literature or history if that interests you. Many colleges will let people audit courses for a small fee, plus some community centers, museums, and other organizations offer classes and seminars. Retirement is the perfect time to jump in and try something new.

Do You Want to Move?


One major change that could come with retirement is moving. Do you want to? Is there any incentive to move now, or do you love your home so much you want to remain in it for as long as you can? There’s no right or wrong answer here. You may decide to stay in your home but, several years later, realize you do want to move. On the other hand, of course, you could make a hasty move and then realize it wasn’t the right decision. Take your time and think about it. 


There are some pros to moving. If all of your children have moved out, your home may simply have too much space. You may want to downsize so there’s less to take care of. If you have a two-story home, you may find that it’s getting more and more difficult to go up and down the stairs. Moving to a single-story home may help take some of the stress off your body. You may even want to look at a retirement community so you don’t have to deal with maintenance or yard work. 


Some people retire and move closer to their families. This can be a great way to play a larger part in your grandchildren’s lives. On the other hand, some actually move farther away. You may decide that North Texas isn’t where you want to spend the rest of your life. Even if it is, you may want to get out of the city and live in a quiet suburban home.

Moving as a Senior


Moving during your golden years is a little bit different than moving while still raising a family or as a young person. If you’ve lived in your home for a number of years, you may have accumulated a lot of stuff. Some of your possessions may now include furniture and other items you’ve inherited, while some of them may be things your kids left behind when they moved out. Regardless of why it’s in your home, you now have to make the decision: do you move it with you, or do you get rid of it?


The first thing you should do with these items is to decide what you want to keep. This may mean determining where you’re going to move first. If you’re going from a 2500-square-foot home to an 1100-square-foot apartment, you’re going to have to leave a lot behind. On the other hand, if you’re moving to a house that’s comparable in size to the one you currently have, you may have more freedom to pick and choose. You may still decide to replace some things and get rid of others, but you don’t have to worry about everything fitting in your new home.


If you do decide you want to get rid of some things, the first step would be to ask friends and family. Your kids may decide they do want the things they left behind, or they may need some items for their children. If you have pieces you’ve inherited, other family members may like to have them.


What about stuff you don’t want or that is no longer in good condition? For that, you need a junk hauling service. Junk King North Texas can quickly and promptly haul away any old furniture, appliances, or other items you don’t need or want. You can focus on moving the things you want to keep while we get rid of all the stuff that’s not coming with you to your new home.

What Do You Keep?


You may find the first step of deciding what to keep is a little overwhelming. You may have a lot of fond memories attached to many of the things in your home or have kept things for years because you might need them one day. If you try to sort items into a keep and donate pile and only have a few items to donate, you may need a different approach.


First, you can use the one-year rule. If you haven’t used an item or thought about it in a year, do you really need it? Many people use this approach to cleaning out their closets. Any article of clothing they haven’t worn in a year, with some exceptions, can go in the donate pile. Exceptions may be things like a heavy coat if it was unseasonably warm this past year. However, if you’re moving to a warmer area, you may not need to take winter gear with you. Keep that in mind. 


Second, think about whether or not something will be useful to you in your new home. You may have several chairs you want to take, but how often do people actually sit in them? Maybe you have a sofa and multiple armchairs in your living room, but no one ever really sits in one of the chairs. Should it really take up space in your new house? 


Third, do your best to avoid moving items to a storage unit. While that may be a short-term solution if you’ve sold your home and have to move out by a specific date, it can become a money sink over time. If you never deal with the items in the storage unit, you’ll simply be paying every month to keep them somewhere where you don’t even have easy access to them. This can stress your budget, especially if you have a limited retirement income. 

Heavy Lifting, Without Moving A Muscle

What Junk King Does to Help Your Move


Junk King can assist you in your move by providing a quick, easy solution to junk hauling. If you decide to get rid of some stuff on your own, you really only have two options: you can put it at the curb for the city’s bulk trash pickup or take it to the landfill yourself. The city will often only pick up a few items, and they may only do so once a month. You may have too much to make that an option. 


Taking things to the landfill yourself can also be very difficult. First, you have to have a vehicle big enough to carry furniture and appliances. Second, you have to be able to get the items out to the vehicle and then unload them at the dump. This can be more than you’re capable of, especially if you don’t have anyone to help. 


Junk King handles all of this. We will take items out of your home for you, so all you have to do is point out what you want us to take. As long as it isn’t something classified as hazardous waste, we can get rid of it for you
