Orange County Basement Junk Removal

Are you in the remodeling mood? Converting a garage, basement, attic or spare room into a more practical space could be just the perfect DIY project to kick off the New Year. Before you tackle that type of job you’ll want to consider your options. What exactly is your goal? Building a home office means making a room comfortable for a desk and other equipment. You’ll maybe want a window or ceiling fan for comfort. On the other hand if you’re looking to turn your basement or garage into a screening room keeping the light out is a better way to go. And if you’re starting from scratch with a screening room you might want to plan out your speaker and television placement so you can sink the speakers into the wall and hire all the wiring.

Once you’ve set your goal for the remodel you’ll want to set some kind of budget. If you’re hiring a contractor it will be easy to know how much you’ll be spending because of the estimate they’ll be providing. Even then you should pad that budget with a contingency just in case. If you’re going to embark on a genuine DIY remodel then you should price out the hard costs of materials. Don’t forget to include any type of furnishings for the finished room. One other valuable budget item for a remodeling job is the before and after cleanup which will be made far easier by utilizing the services of Junk King Orange County.

Junk King OC is the professional hauling company who specializes in all types of junk removal in the Orange County area. Before you start the project you’ll want to clear out the space you’re targeting for a makeover.

Orange County Debris Removal

Ask any parent what the happiest day of their life and they’ll probably relate the day their kid was born. Then they grow up to be a teenager and all bets are off! According to the law, until a child reaches the age of adulthood, which is 18, the parents are essentially responsible for their actions. This also means picking up the bill when the teen gets into trouble such as tagging. Recently, a local Orange County mom was slapped with an $18,000 dollar bill to clean up her son’s recent bout of graffiti “art.”

As is the case with most taggers, they are happy to sign their work so it wasn’t hard tracking down the culprit and now mom is on the hook. While that is a very expensive bill to pay off it’s really just a fraction of the total cleanup costs in Lake Forest alone. Last year it was $74K which was a drop from the $141K spent the year before. Clearly, having parents pay the bill is having a positive impact.

When it comes to your own type of cleanup project, thankfully it doesn’t have to be that expensive. Not even close especially when you hire a professional company like Junk King Orange County to haul away all your bulky items.
