The Best Blue Ridge Junk Removal Services to Reduce your Waste Footprint

 

Did you know that every person in the United States is responsible for producing around 4.5 pounds of trash each and every day? From leftover food scraps after a big family meal, to the junk mail that you receive daily in your mailbox, to the bulky used refrigerator that you finally decide to throw away, there are thousands of different items that make up our waste streams. Around the country, there are over 20,000 different waste management and junk removal companies that are responsible for helping us remove the junk from our homes or business. In terms of dollars and cents, the waste industry in the United States is valued at over $75 billion each year, making it an extremely lucrative part of the economy. 

What most people don’t realize, however, is that the vast majority of these waste management companies “deal” with our waste by simply taking it to the nearest landfill or incinerator. Though there are several statistics pointing to an increase in our national recycling and waste diversion rate, the fact of the matter is that we continue to send more of our trash to the landfill than ever before. 

In recent years, the Chinese “ban” on importing recyclable items (and especially plastic waste) has caused a surge in the total amount of waste that is sent to the landfill. Here in Blue Ridge, TX, every homeowner, business owner, and other resident can do their part by dutifully separating their trash items into the designated recycling bins. But what about those other waste items that cannot be simply taken out to the curb on trash day? 

Old couches, beds, and other pieces of furniture, used and broken down appliances, playground equipment that is no longer used, and other sources of bulky trash items generally end up in the landfill because most people simply don’t know what to do with those waste items. For residents of Blue Ridge, however, Junk King of North Texas offers an easy, one-stop solution for dealing with all of your junk items in the most responsible and environmentally-friendly manner. We are proud to be the region´s top-rated junk removal company, and believe that as a leader in the junk removal industry, we have a special role to play in helping our clients reduce their ecological footprint.

What is an Ecological Footprint and Why is it Important?

 

The Ecological Footprint is a helpful tool that measures the rate at which individuals and societies consume resources and generate waste compared to how fast nature can absorb that waste and regenerate the resources we need for our wellbeing and survival. One of ways to reduce our waste footprint is through changing our consumption habits and patterns to reduce our overall demand for resources. However, when it comes to absorbing the waste from our consumer habits, things get a trickier. 

Recent studies have shown that humanity today uses the equivalent of 1.6 Earths to provide the resources we use and absorb our waste. This “ecological overshoot” means it now takes the Earth one year and eight months to regenerate what we use in a year. How can we responsibly reduce our “ecological footprint” in a way that allows the natural world to absorb and regenerate our waste?

 

The most effective way of reducing our ecological footprint is by making a conscientious effort to keep our junk out of the landfill. Why is this important? For starters, many landfills across the country are not only quickly filling up, but also pose several serious environmental threats. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that “landfill gas (LFG) is a natural byproduct of the decomposition of organic material in landfills. LFG is composed of roughly 50 percent methane (the primary component of natural gas), 50 percent carbon dioxide (CO2) and a small amount of non-methane organic compounds.” The methane gas produced by landfills is particularly worrisome as it is has more than 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide over the first 20 years after it reaches the atmosphere. The methane being released in enormous quantities from our landfills is thus driving the pace for warming in the short term. 

Beyond the contribution to global warming, landfills are also a major source of pollution of our soils, water sources, and other parts of the local environment. Landfills are filled with heavy metals, minerals, organic chemicals, bacteria, viruses, explosives, flammables, and others toxic substances that can leach into the surrounding environment and pose serious risks to wildlife and nearby human communities.

Reducing the amount of “stuff” that we purchase, use and throw away is obviously one important strategy for keeping junk out of landfills. When items do eventually wear out and need to be thrown away, making every effort to donate, reuse, repurpose, or recycle those items should also be a priority for people wanting to reduce their ecological footprint.

Junk King of North Texas is here to Help you with the Best Junk Removal Service

 

At times, recycling large and bulky items can be extremely difficult. In many cases, the local waste management company may impose strict rules and regulations regarding which items can be picked up. For bulky item pickup, you may have to wait several months for pickup day. Even then, you will also be responsible for taking those large and heavy trash items out to the curb on the morning of pickup day. 

For people who don’t have the time, the physical means, or the resources to do this, the only option on the table may be to hire a private junk hauler. Unfortunately, many of the private junk removal companies that service the Blue Ridge region will simply take the junk that they pick up directly to the local landfill. 

Junk King of North Texas, however, is proud to be one of the few junk removal companies that has an environmental standard at the heart of its business model. Besides doing all of the heavy lifting and hauling for our clients, our junk removal teams also go the extra mile to sort through all of the junk items that we pick up to determine what can be donated, recycled, or otherwise repurposed. Over years of being the leading junk removal company in the region, we have developed several relationships with thrift stores, charities, churches, and recycling centers. This allows to ensure that your junk items are kept out of the landfill and given every possible opportunity for reuse or recycling. 

Furthermore, we are also proud to be the most affordable junk removal company servicing the City of Blue Ridge, TX. Our junk hauling trucks are significantly larger than other companies, and we also only charge by volume (or the amount of space your junk or waste items take up in our trucks). Because of that, we can often help you remove more junk for a lower price. Besides offering the most competitive pricing on the market, we also can beat any written estimates. Our company is fully licensed, insured, and bonded, so that if an accident were to occur, we will respond for any damage that might have been caused during the junk removal process.

Why North Texas Real Estate Agents Should Partner with Junk King

 

Being a real estate agent is more than just showing people houses. That’s the fun part. The rest of the job is a lot of hard work. You have to understand real estate law, marketing, building codes, interior design, and much more. However, it can also be one of the most rewarding jobs you’ll ever have. 

 

One of the biggest boons to your real estate career comes from your network. The people you know, especially in the trades, can give you the edge over other real estate professionals. Knowing an amazing plumber who is reliable and also budget-friendly, for example, can help you impress sellers who may need to make some repairs before their home can hit the market. 

 

Another company you need in your network is Junk King North Texas. There are a number of reasons why you’ll want to work with Junk King. Here are just some of the benefits to you and your clients that Junk King can provide.

 

We’ll Clean Out Anything Sellers Don’t Want

 

When selling a home, it’s important to present it correctly to potential buyers. This does make making some repairs and touching up the paint, of course, but it also means showing a staged, or at least empty, home. Staging is an important part of helping buyers imagine themselves in the space. If your seller doesn’t have the budget to stage, they should at least have the home cleared out.

 

While sellers may want to move most of the stuff in their house to their new home, there may be some things they just don’t want. Whether it’s trash, old furniture, or whatever else, leaving it in the house is going to create an eyesore. You don’t want anyone viewing the property to see this garbage. Junk King can come in and haul it all away, giving you a blank slate to stage or show.

 

Studies have shown that homes that are empty or staged sell faster. Potential buyers don’t have as much difficulty picturing their own furniture in the space or seeing how they can use the various rooms. If they’re looking at other people’s furniture or, worse, trash, it can leave them feeling like the house isn’t the right fit. Junk King will get the junk out of the property quickly so you can get it on the market as soon as possible.

We’ll Haul Away Repair and Remodel Debris, Too

 

In addition to hauling away old furniture and broken appliances, Junk King also takes yard debris and DIY construction debris. This means we can haul off any tree limbs the seller needs to take down, bushes they’ve removed, and even demolished decks and patios. There’s very little we can’t take—we only reject hazardous materials. 

 

If your sellers are planning to do a little home remodeling by themselves to raise their asking price, we’re ready to come haul off any trash they might make while doing so. This includes old flooring, cabinets, sinks, appliances, shower enclosures, and much more. All they have to do is set all that trash aside along with any packaging from the new products and other trash they might have. Once they’re done with their project, all they have to do is give us a call. 

 

We Can Assist Buyers, Too

 

Sometimes your buyers find a property that isn’t exactly in the best of shape. Sometimes these homes have trash in the shed or garage that needs to go. Other times, you may show the home only to find that the seller has left behind some old furniture and other junk that they don’t want. If they’re selling the property as-is, your buyers may not have the option of telling them to haul that trash out. They’re stuck with it.

 

A quick call to Junk King will take care of any trash left in the home. We will swoop in and clean it all out so the new owners can come in and start creating the home of their dreams. Whatever your buyers need taken away, we can do it. 

 

Some buyers may want to do a little renovation after closing but before moving in. You can refer them to us to get rid of anything like old carpet, cabinets, or anything else they want to get rid of. While we play a small part in the process, we love that we help these new homeowners transform their new house into the home they’ve always wanted.

Flipping a Home? We’re Here for That, Too

 

Some real estate professionals also dabble in buying homes in disrepair, flipping them, and making a tidy profit. If you’ve been itching to try this, you’re going to want to have a partner with large trucks to haul away all the debris these projects will create. If you’re an old pro at flipping, you don’t need to imagine how much trash you’ll have—you know. 

 

Junk King is a great partner for house flippers. Whether you need us to come over once after you’ve completed demo to get rid of the debris or you need us a few times during the project, you can count on us to be reliable. We know debris can create a safety issue, and if it piles up, it can bring work to a standstill until it’s gone. Every day someone is working on the property is a day of lost profits, so we understand how important your schedule is, and we will do everything in our power to respect it.

 

Other Real Estate Experts Go into Rental Properties

 

Maybe flipping properties is a bit too much for a side job for you. It’s a lot of work, and some real estate agents prefer to focus more on their clients. However, the nature of the real estate market means that sometimes it’s very difficult to sell houses. There just aren’t that many buyers out there. During these times, it can help to have a steady stream of supplemental income. 

 

To make this income, some agents pick up properties, update them, and operate them as rental properties. There are some great advantages here, especially if you’re able to get properties for a very reasonable price. Don’t want to be a landlord? That’s not a problem—you can hire a property management company to handle all of the day-to-day maintenance and other issues that come with having tenants. 

 

How can Junk King help real estate professionals who decide to go into rentals? Sometimes tenants leave behind trash or even old furniture they don’t want. If you have to evict someone, they may simply abandon their property and leave. You’ve got to get this junk out before you can prepare the property for a new tenant. That’s when you call Junk King North Texas.

The Junk King Advantage

 

Junk King provides several advantages over other options. First, we’re a full-service company. This means you don’t have to lift a finger. All you need to do is show our crew what you want them to get rid of. They will get it out of the house or yard and into our trucks. You won’t need to find someone to help you move old furniture to the curb or even to the front of the house. The sellers can leave behind whatever they want without worrying about anything. In fact, often our real estate agents simply tell us to empty the house. That’s all we need to hear.

 

If your clients have some old furniture that is still usable but doesn’t work in their new, we won’t simply take it to the dump. Instead, Junk King donates anything that is still usable. We will take that furniture to one of our partner organizations in North Texas who will make certain it gets into the right hands.

 

We also redirect anything that is recyclable away from the landfill. These materials go to a recycling center that can transform the used materials into new ones. Junk King is fully dedicated to helping the environment and reducing our contribution to the landfill. Currently, we’re able to direct two-thirds of the items we pick up away from the landfill, and we hope to increase that number in the future.

 

Contact Junk King Today for a Free, No-Obligation Estimate

 

If your sellers need someone to empty out the home they’re selling or get rid of some debris from their new place, all they need to do is give us a call. We will provide them with a free, no-obligation quote that will include all the fees and other costs associated with their job. We believe in full transparency, and we will always do an in-person revised estimate once we’re on-site so our clients know the exact cost. 

 

While calling us at 1-888-888-JUNK is a great way to get an over-the-phone estimate or arrange for an in-person estimate, we know not everyone has the time to make a phone call. That’s why we can also discuss jobs via text. All you need to do is text us at 1-737-888-5865. Including photos of the items you need hauled away will help us provide an accurate estimate. Finally, you can use our online price estimator tool and book online.

Let Junk King North Texas Help with Your Construction Site Trash

 

Construction sites have a lot of debris and other junk that has to be dealt with. Some of this comes from the excavation of the site or the demolition of a previously existing structure. Other debris comes from the packaging, remnants of materials, and other trash. Some comes from accidents or areas of the project that have to be demolished and redone for some reason. No matter where the debris comes from, your construction site is going to have a lot of trash.

 

What do you do with all of this debris? You can’t leave it there. Debris on a construction site can be a hazard. Your crew could trip over it, fall into it, or otherwise be injured. It can get in the way of progress, and eventually, you’re going to have to get rid of it before you turn the finished project over to the owner. 

 

Dealing with all of your debris can be a pain. There are a few different options, but the easiest is to reach out to Junk King North Texas. We work with a number of businesses, including construction crews, in the North Texas area. We provide full-service junk removal that accommodates your schedules and budget. Here are a few of the things Junk King North Texas does to help the construction companies we partner with.

We’ll Help with the Initial Debris

 

When you start a construction project, you’re most likely going to have to deal with one of two things: either the lot is going to have to be cleared and leveled, or you’re going to have to get rid of the existing structure. Sometimes, you may have to do both. This includes demolishing buildings, removing trees and other landscaping, getting rid of gravel and other stones, and leveling out the ground. If there was a basement on the property, you may have to remove it or fill it in. There’s a lot to be done before you can even start building.

 

All of the waste that comes from clearing the land has to go somewhere. Junk King takes construction debris and landscaping debris. We will come in and haul away tree limbs, brush, bushes, and other landscaping trash. We’ll even take entire trees once they’re cut up. All of it can go right into our truck.

 

As far as demolished buildings go, we can also haul away the debris from knocking them down. This includes drywall, old piping, old roofing materials, wood, and much more. Once we’ve come in and cleared away this trash, you’ll have a bare lot to work with.

 

Even if you’re not a construction company, we can still haul away demolished structures. We often work with homeowners and renters who have old sheds, greenhouses, playhouses, and tree houses that need to get rid of. Typically, if the debris from the structure will fit in our truck, we can get rid of it for you. That goes for patios, decks, gazebos, pergolas, and other outdoor structures, too.

 

Next, We Assist with Getting Rid of Trash Created While Working

 

As you work on the construction project, you’re going to create debris. Some of this will be packaging such as plastic ties, pallets, bags, and other trash that your raw materials come in. While it may not be a lot of trash, it can add up over time. You’ll also have the remnants of materials. As you install tile, for example, you’ll have some leftover pieces from where you had to cut tiles near the edge of the space to fit. If you’re working on a large project, you may end up with much more remnant debris than you expected.

 

You may have some material that comes warped or was machined wrong. While this may not happen that often, it can be annoying. You may need to return these materials for a refund. However, if it’s just one item in a package, it may not be worth it. A single chipped tile, for example, isn’t worth trying to return. Instead, it’s much easier to throw it in the trash. These damaged items aren’t likely going to be the source of a lot of trash, but you never know.

 

As you finish up the project, you may have additional debris and trash to get rid of, especially as you do the final cleanup before turning it over to the owner. All of this garbage can add up. By having Junk King come by regularly to get rid of all of the debris you’ve collected, you’ll keep the job site clean and safe.

Why is Debris Such a Safety Hazard?

 

If you keep all of the debris off to one side in a designated place, you may not think it’s much of a safety hazard. In some cases, that may be right. However, due to how busy a construction site is, you always have to be careful. For example, strong winds could blow debris around, or rain could cause your mountain of trash to shift and wash down into the main work area. A few pieces of trash might get missed, leading to someone tripping over them while carrying heavy materials or tools. 

 

The risk isn’t always to your crew, either. Anyone visiting the site, even though they should be wearing proper safety gear, may not be as aware of their surroundings as they should be. They could trip or hurt themselves in some other way. Even people who are just walking by the job site could get injured if debris isn’t well-contained and removed regularly.

 

There’s also a space issue. The more trash you have on a job site, the less space you have to actually work. Your crew may need a good amount of space, so having your trash hauled away regularly will help make their jobs easier in addition to safer.

Getting Rid of the Debris Yourself Takes Time

 

You could assign a few of your crew to deal with the debris every week or every couple of days. However, there are a few downsides to this. First, you’re losing your skilled labor. Whoever gets trash duty isn’t putting their skills and knowledge to work on the project. Instead, they’re doing manual labor. That’s also likely to affect their morale. Your crew joined your company to build things, not to shovel debris into a truck.

 

That’s the second issue: you have to have a truck or trailer capable of hauling the debris to the landfill. If you don’t, you may have to invest in one. That’s another investment you have to make. While a trailer may not cost as much as a truck, it’s still going to be an expense, plus you have to have a vehicle capable of towing it to the landfill.

 

You’ll also have landfill fees as well as the issue of getting to the landfill with a trailer or truck-full of construction debris. You don’t want any of this stuff flying out onto the highway and potentially hitting vehicles behind you, so you have to make certain it’s secure. It’s a lot more difficult to secure loose debris like this than it is something like an old refrigerator or sofa. Wrapping it with a tarp will help, but if that tarp comes loose, you’ve got a problem.

 

Why Junk King?

 

Why should you partner with Junk King North Texas for your construction debris hauling needs? Simple: we’re dedicated to providing outstanding service at an affordable price. We’re here for you, whether you need us every now and then or want to arrange regular service. Our crews have years of experience in hauling junk of all types, including construction debris. Our trucks are, on the whole, twenty percent larger than those of our competitors. This means there’s more space for trash, so we don’t have to make as many trips. That’s one of the ways we keep our costs as low as we can.

 

We can also take more than just construction debris. We can haul off any old appliances, furniture, or other trash that was left in the structures you had to demolish. If you’re a homeowner doing a DIY construction project, we’ll haul off that debris and whatever else you might want to get rid of. It’s a good time to clean out the garage, the shed, or even your closets so you can get rid of all that unwanted stuff at one time.

 

Junk King can haul away anything that isn’t classified as hazardous waste. While a lot of construction debris doesn’t fall into this category, please ask about anything you may have questions about. Some items, such as paint, can be made inert by adding a specific hardening agent. We can take paint if it has been hardened. Other materials may need to be collected by a professional specializing in hazardous materials.

Top 5 Ways to Deal with Yard Waste in Anna, Texas

 

Now that the days are growing shorter, and the weather is becoming pleasantly cooler in the evenings, many homeowners, business owners, and other residents of Anna, Texas are beginning to think about the best strategies for efficient and quick yard waste removal. In this short article, we will take a look at the top five strategies for dealing with yard waste. We´ll also explain why Junk King of North Texas, the region´s top-rated junk removal company is the best option for yard waste removal in the entire North Texas region. 

Burn your Yard Waste

 

One option that people in Anna, TX have for dealing with your yard waste is to simply burn those fallen leaves, old branches, and other dry yard waste that is making up your growing brush pile. Burning your yard waste offers a quick solution to yard waste issues. However, it is important to take into consideration how local laws and burning ordinances may affect you. According to the Collin County website

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has generally prohibited outdoor burning with few exceptions. These exceptions can be found in the TCEQ Outdoor Burning Rules which have been designed to protect the environment and promote public health and safety…The TCEQ does not issue burning permits. If your situation fits all requirements for one of the exceptions described in the rule, you may conduct outdoor burning, as long as you comply with all the conditions. Depending on the circumstances, you may also need approval from the appropriate regional TCEQ office before you burn.

Furthermore, for people who live in urban or suburban neighborhoods, your local homeowner´s association may also have restrictions regarding outdoor burning that could land you a potentially hefty fine.

Compost your Yard Waste

 

Another way to deal with yard waste is to set up a backyard composting operation. In the simplest of forms, you can simply mix your brown (or dry) and green (or fresh) yard waste materials in a large mound and let nature slowly decompose those materials into a rich organic fertilizer that can later be applied to your garden. More avid gardeners may consider adding kitchen scraps and other soil amendments for a better quality compost. It is important to keep in mind, however, that composting yard waste does require a fair amount of physical labor. 

Give your Yard Waste to a Neighbor

 

If you are not the gardening type, you might consider finding a neighbor who has a green thumb and is constantly searching for sources of organic material. “One person´s trash is another person´s treasure,” as the saying goes, and there may people in your vicinity who are happy to take your leaves, grass clippings, old mulch, and wood chips off your property. 

 

Junk King Heavy Lifting

Schedule a Bulky Item Pickup with your Local Trash Service

 

For small amounts of yard waste, you might also be able to get rid of that waste by sending it out to the curb with your regular trash, or by scheduling a bulky item pickup. The city of Anna, Texas does offer regular bulky item pickup. In the case of yard waste, however, their guidelines specifically state that brush, branches, and other types of yard waste cannot exceed 4 feet or 50 pounds and must be bundled for them to be picked up by the garbage truck.

If you do plan to rely on the public trash service for your yard waste removal needs, you will need to be prepared to bundle and haul all of that waste out to the curb. Due to the strict size and weight considerations, getting rid of large amounts of yard waste in this way may be infeasible.

Junk King Can Help You with Cleaning Up a Hoarder House

 

Hoarding is more than just keeping a few extra things. It’s a recognized disorder that affects anywhere from around five million to upwards of 14 million people in the United States. The reason why this is such a large range is that many people never get diagnosed with this disorder. This is because when people think of hoarding, they imagine houses stuffed full of junk. That’s not always the case, though. Just like with many other disorders and conditions, hoarding does range from mild to very severe. 

 

For those who have more severe hoarding tendencies, an intervention may become necessary at some point. That’s when the hoarder’s loved ones have to come in and clean out the house. What do you do with all of this trash? The solution is to give Junk King North Texas a call. Our crew is used to dealing with large jobs, including hoarder houses. 

 

What Is Hoarding?

 

Compulsive hoarding is a diagnosable condition that may seem easy to recognize—the person irrationally keeps things. However, it goes much deeper than that. At its core, hoarding isn’t about keeping things. Instead, it’s a fear of getting rid of them. The hoarder may experience everything from slight trepidation to physical illness just at the thought of throwing away something. Those on the mild side of hoarding can often push through the fear, especially with the help of a therapist. More severe cases, though, often need more help. 

 

Many hoarders don’t understand that their hoarding is a problem. They may have entire rooms full of stuff, but to them, everything has a purpose, and there’s a reason why they’re keeping it. Someone may keep every resealable food container they’ve ever bought, which seems excessive to most. However, to that person, they’re saving these containers to store leftovers. They don’t see a problem with what they’re doing, which is why it can be so hard to diagnose hoarding and get the hoarder the help they need. Part of that help will likely include calling Junk King North Texas. There’s often just too much for your city trash bins to handle.

The Symptoms of Hoarding

 

Because it’s a complex condition, there are different symptoms of hoarding. Some people may save everything, while others may actually go out of their way to acquire items they believe they need or that will be useful. For example, some people may purchase several dozen packages of toilet paper at a time so they have plenty in case they can’t get back to the store. They do this every time they go shopping, though, and soon they have over a hundred packages they’re “saving.” This is also motivated by fear, but it’s not a fear of getting rid of stuff. It’s a fear of needing something and not having it.

 

As the hoarding continues, other symptoms begin to appear. The hoarder’s home will begin to fill up with stuff. Entire rooms can become full from floor to ceiling, wall to wall. There’s no way to even get into the room, let alone find specific items in it. Some hoarders start out with a very organized stockpile of stuff, but over the years, they are more likely to become disorganized simply because they don’t have the space to keep things tidy. 

 

Eventually, the hoarding creates an unsafe environment. There may be old food and other trash scattered among the items. The kitchen and bathroom may be so full of stuff that they can’t be used. Stacks of hoarded stuff may become unstable and topple over, breaking things or falling on someone and injuring them. When it becomes unsafe to live in the house, something has to be done. Junk King can help you clean out the home so your loved one can live there without worrying about getting buried under a tower of old newspapers.

 

Is it Hoarding or Collecting?

 

People who are very averse to keeping anything they don’t need may accuse someone of hoarding when what they’re really doing is collecting. If you’re a minimalist or just have no need for anything that doesn’t serve a purpose, it can be easy to see collecting as hoarding. Collectors, however, typically want very specific items. They keep these items very organized, have a catalog of what they own, and often proudly display them. People may amass very large collections, but they can also tell you why they have each item, its worth, and interesting facts about it. 

 

Hoarders, on the other hand, tend to keep anything and everything. They’re disorganized, and they eventually lose track of what they have. Usually about the only thing they can say about items they have is that they will be useful one day or that they were on sale. They don’t display any of these items because they aren’t worth displaying—they’re common household items or junk.

Animal Hoarding

 

One unique and horribly sad type of hoarding is animal hoarding. Some hoarders start out with a dog or a couple of cats, but before long, they have several dozen. In the worst cases, animal hoarders have had over a hundred animals. They simply aren’t able to care for all of them, and often, these animals are in very poor health. The house often becomes full of animal urine and feces, creating a health hazard for everyone living there. Some of the animals die in the home and are never removed, making it even more unsafe. 

 

Who is at Risk of Becoming a Hoarder?

 

Many think that elderly people are hoarders, when in fact, many of them simply grew up during a time when things were scarce. They may save some items like plastic containers because they lived through a time when it wasn’t easy to replace items. However, most of these people don’t hoard to dangerous levels, and they will throw things away if they see that they’re keeping too much. 

 

Studies have actually shown that most hoarders start keeping items when they’re in their early teens. From there, the condition gets worse as they get older. As teens, they don’t have a lot of space to hoard, so the condition doesn’t usually become very obvious until they’re in their late twenties or thirties and have more room. 

 

There are a few risk factors associated with hoarding. Those with a family history of hoarding are more likely to develop the disorder themselves. People who are indecisive or anxious by nature may also hoard, either because they can’t decide what to keep or because they’re afraid they will need something as soon as they throw it away. People who go through very traumatic events, such as the death of a loved one or the loss of most or all of their possessions, may also develop hoarding tendencies. They may want to keep everything their loved one had, or they might start hoarding because they don’t want to lose everything again. Sadly, hoarding can be a fire hazard, making it more likely they will lose their possessions. 

 

Helping Someone with a Hoarding Disorder

 

When you realize your loved one has a hoarding disorder, what can you do? The first thing you need to realize is what you can’t do. You can’t yell at them or tell them to “just throw stuff away.” If they have a true hoarding disorder, that won’t work. You need to recognize that what they’re dealing with is similar to obsessive-compulsive disorder. It isn’t something they can easily control or just force themselves to deal with. They need to see a licensed mental health expert to work through their hoarding.

 

They will need their house cleaned out, and that is something you can certainly help with. However, another major thing to avoid is cleaning without their consent. This can trigger a meltdown. While you might love to come home to see that someone cleaned your home, someone with a hoarding disorder won’t. As they attend therapy and begin working through their disorder, you’ll want to work with them to clean their home. In some cases, you may even need to provide them with a place to stay or with finding temporary housing if their home is unsafe. 

 

When you do begin cleaning out the home, you’ll need to have Junk King North Texas on call to help you deal with everything. We will clean out the entire house if that’s what you want, but we can also take specific items you point out to us. Often, hoarders do still have things they should keep, such as their clothing and furniture. It may be helpful to have Junk King come in and clear out everything you know is garbage, such as hundreds of old newspapers and magazines, so you can have room to sort through things. Then we can come back later and take everything you’ve decided is trash.

Everything You Need to Know About Getting Rid of an Old Mattress

 

Have you been waking up feeling unrested or with more aches and pains than you once had? If so, you might blame old age or the stress of your job, but there could be something else at fault: your bed. Mattresses don’t last forever, and some don’t even make it the seven or eight years you’re told they will. Waking up with aches or not sleeping well isn’t normal, and if you know it’s not a health-related issue, it’s probably your mattress.

 

Old mattresses become lumpy, fail to support your body correctly, and can actually be the cause of breathing issues. However, getting rid of an old mattress isn’t always easy since they are one of the bulkiest and most awkward pieces of furniture to move. That’s why many people call a junk hauling service like Junk King. If you’re wondering about the state of your mattress, here are some signs that it’s past its prime and some tips for getting rid of it.

 

Is it Time to Trash Your Mattress?

 

The first thing to determine is if it’s time for your mattress to go in the trash. First, look for some of the common signs that your mattress is no longer doing what it should be. Are you sleeping well? Do you have trouble getting comfortable at night? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and toss and turn for what feels like hours? If you rule out medical conditions and other issues that could cause you to not sleep well, the answer is likely that your mattress just doesn’t provide the support it should.

 

Over the years, mattresses slowly begin to break down. If you have a traditional coil mattress, those coils can start to flatten out or shift out of position. Once they do, they don’t support you or, worse, they poke you in the back. Memory foam mattresses may not have this issue since they don’t have coils, but the foam does break down over time. If you get off a memory foam mattress and can very clearly see where you were laying, it means the foam isn’t springing back into place like it once did. 

 

There are other signs that your mattress needs to join your bulk trash pile. Here are a few things to check to see if your mattress needs to be replaced:

There Are Visible Signs of Wear

 

If you see stains, rips, and tears in the mattress, it’s likely there is more damage beneath the surface. These signs typically show that the mattress has been heavily used and needs to be replaced. 

 

It Smells

 

If there are stains on your mattress, there are likely smells coming from it, too. No mattress should smell bad. Yes, at first a new mattress is likely to have a bit of a smell to it because it’s been wrapped in plastic, but that smell should dissipate pretty quickly. Any bad smells coming from a mattress you’ve used for years aren’t normal. In fact, if you know liquid has been spilled on the mattress, these smells could indicate that mold has started to grow inside the mattress.

 

It Squeaks

 

You shouldn’t really hear your mattress as you turn over or move around. At most, you should hear a slight sound, but if you’re hearing loud squeaks and groans, it’s not a good sign. That indicates that the coils in the mattress are wearing out. 

 

You Find Bedbugs

 

There’s no real question about whether or not your mattress needs to go if you’ve found bedbugs. This infestation will likely result in having your entire home treated. While you could have your mattress specially cleaned for bedbugs, it’s very difficult to fully eradicate them. They are so small they can hide within the walls by slipping through electrical outlets. It’s often simply easier, safer, and even more affordable to purchase a new mattress instead of having one cleaned.

Why is Getting Rid of an Old Mattress so Important?

 

Mattresses, especially high-quality mattresses, can be very expensive. Experts recommend you replace your mattress every seven to ten years, but do you really need to? In some cases, no. If you’ve taken care of your mattress, it may not need to be replaced. However, if your mattress is showing any of the signs listed above, you do need to look for a new one.

 

The reason is simple: if you have a worn-out mattress, you’re not sleeping as well as you should be. A lack of sleep will affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally. While you may not notice some of these effects, they are happening. Here are some of the ways a lack of sleep is damaging to your health:

 

Physical Damage

 

Physically, a lack of sleep leaves your body weak. Sleep is when the body repairs damage to itself and combats the viruses and bacteria that cause illnesses. If you aren’t sleeping well, your body’s defenses aren’t as strong as they should be. This means you may be sick for longer periods of time or get sick more often. 

 

This also affects chronic health conditions. Without good quality sleep, the body can’t deal with these conditions effectively. Your chronic health issues could get worse, or conditions that you had managed effectively could become more serious. A lack of sleep will affect every part of your body, so any and every condition, wound, or illness you have will be impacted. 

 

Mental Damage

 

Mentally, a lack of sleep leaves you feeling groggy all day. You may find it hard to concentrate on things or work through problems. You might forget important things or find it hard to focus on the details of a job. Another mental effect of a lack of sleep is that your flexes are no longer as sharp as they should be. This could result in hurting yourself or others. For example, you may not react fast enough to a car coming over into your lane, resulting in an accident.

 

Emotional Damage

 

Emotionally, poor sleep results in a poor attitude. You may find yourself being much more irritable or emotional than normal. This can damage your relationships with others, especially if you lash out at co-workers or family members.

How Do You Get Rid of an Old Mattress?

 

Once you’ve decided that your old mattress has to go, the question becomes how do you get rid of it? There are a few options. You could try taking it to the city landfill yourself. Unfortunately, this means you’ve got to get it out of your home and then find a truck to get the mattress there. This isn’t always easy. Once you get to the landfill, you’ll also have to pay the dumping fee.

 

Another option is to put the mattress out for bulk trash day, but again, that involves getting it out of your home and down to the curb. The city doesn’t pick up bulk trash every week, either, so you need to know when the pick-up is and remember to put the mattress out. If you put it out too early, it’s possible you could be fined. 

 

Call Junk King of North Texas

 

The easiest way of getting rid of an old mattress is to call Junk King North Texas. Our crew will quickly and affordably get the mattress out of your home. We will schedule the pickup according to your schedule, and we can even do a contactless curb pickup if you can get the mattress outside. It doesn’t even have to be at the curb—just tell us where to find it, and we’ll come pick it up. 

 

If you’re at home, you don’t need to move the mattress anywhere. All you need to do is remove the sheets and anything else on it, then show us where it is. We will carefully haul it out. We can take the box springs, headboard, and frame, too, if you want to get rid of the entire bed.

 

We will also take other junk at the same time. We handle furniture and appliances, of course, but we can also take old electronics, construction waste, yard waste, and just about anything else. We won’t touch anything categorized as hazardous waste, though. Our crews simply aren’t trained or equipped to deal with that.
