Ready to do some furniture shopping? Before heading out there is one question that needs to be answered: Do you know your wood? With wood furniture there are three different categories. Solid wood is the real deal and the most expensive. It can provide a great look for any room but it can also attract all kinds of scratches and water ring damage. Might be a lot to keep up with especially as a coffee table. Then there is veneer which has a cheaper cut of wood as a base that is then covered with thin layers of the good wood stuff. Veneer furniture is less expensive than solid wood and can look every bit as good depending on the manufacturer. At the low end is particleboard. This is wood made from pressing together wood pulp, plastics and resin. In other words, all the scraps. These are the cheapest of the wood furniture varieties but they won’t last as long as a solid oak piece.
When you zero in on a particular piece of wood furniture, look closer for how it is joined together. Furniture that depends on nails and glue isn’t of high quality. You want to find wood joinery pieces. That would be furniture that is joined together like fitting pieces of a puzzle. These are often sturdier and can take more weight.
If you’re getting furniture with fabric like a sofa or chair you really need to think about your living environment. Got pets? Kids? Then bet on that fabric being stained at some point. This doesn’t mean you can’t get a stain resistant fabric but just be aware that nothing will 100% stain proof. Look no further than your current pieces of furniture for that proof. In fact, you might be in the shopping mode because of all of the stains on your old furniture. Before you can bring in those new clean pieces you’ll need to get rid of the old worn out furniture. This is where Junk King Orange County will be a great help.
If it took two guys and a truck to bring your sofa into your house then you’ll need that same operation for the removal. Junk King sends over a two-man crew and huge truck for every job. In some cases, you’ll get even more crewmembers depending on the size of your job. The best part of that is you won’t have to pay extra for any of that. You’ll only be charged by the amount of space your junk takes up on their truck. And the crew isn’t going to spread out your junk. They want to pack it tuck into the truck to make room for more pickups.
As soon as you’re ready to toss out that furniture and the rest of your junk, give Junk King OC a call to find out how that can make it happen.
