Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout After A Flood

You might need to call our Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout team after a flood or other type of natural disaster. We can get rid of a variety of furniture that’s ruined after a flood like mattresses as well as tables and bookcases.

As a homeowner, a flood can be both damaging and devastating. There are many causes of one of these disasters including burst pipes and heavy rains. A malfunctioning sump pump or sewer that backs up are two other reasons why you might need to clean your house out.

Knowing what to do before we arrive is important. With a few tips about how to prepare for a house cleanout after a flood, everything will go more smoothly.

Safety First
For example, the most important idea to follow after a home disaster of this magnitude is safety first. Before you start worrying about what furniture and other items can be saved, you need to turn the power off.
Being proactive is also a good idea. Wearing protective clothing like gloves and rubber boots can help you to stay safe when you enter your home after a flood. There’s always the possibility the water inside has come into contact with chemicals or sewerage. You want to be protected from that.

Stop Water
After you’ve got those safety tips looked after, you’ll want to stop the water from coming in and causing further damage. You can call your municipality to move any debris that’s clogging up your storm drains. If you have a sump pump and it’s not working properly, you should replace it as quickly as possible.

If you take a quick look at our Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout services, you’ll see that we can remove almost all types of furniture from your home or office. If anything can be recycled or donated, we will send it to the right location.

Drying Out
Drying out your house after a flood is another step you can take after the water is gone. If you’re lucky enough to have power, you can use dehumidifiers to minimize the damage. Don’t forget to call your insurance company and make a claim.

With all of those steps out of the way, you can get in touch with our Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout services by calling or using the tab on our website.

Don’t Keep Clutter On Your Backyard Deck

As you drive around any Orange County neighborhood you might notice that there isn’t a lot of “porch action” going on. Yes, many homes have a front porch but these are the kind of wrap around porches that you would find in the south or east coast neighborhoods. If SoCal residents are going to spend time outside, it will be on the backyard deck. This is where the BBQ grill gets fired up and evening meals are served. It’s also were you can keep an eye on the kids swimming in the pool.

Creating The Perfect Sleep Environment

Waking up groggy is a good indication you didn’t get a good night’s sleep. On the other hand, if you wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day, then your body got its rest and you’re totally recharged. One of the ways you can achieve that goal is to cut back on those “midnight snacks.” Those can break up your sleep pattern as your body switches from sleep mode to digestion mode. The other way to achieve a good night’s sleep is to create the perfect sleeping environment. Here’s how to get it done:

bedroom-389258_960_720

Set the Right Temperature

For sleeping, cool is much better than warm. How many restless nights have you had because it was too hot? The optimum temperature for most people appears to be anywhere from 68 to 70 degrees. If you don’t want your AC running all night, then consider installing a ceiling fan to help cool things down. They can be extremely effective.

Optimize Your Bedroom Environment

Our bodies are “wired” to sleep at night and be awake during the day. You can’t take a nap on the beach unless you cover your eyes. In order to get a good night’s sleep your bedroom environment has to be optimized. That starts with the darkness. Try to avoid bright alarm clocks or the glare from the TV. Blackout curtains are a good way to keep the light from outside seeping in. They also can dampen noise, which is equally important for falling and staying asleep. If there is too much traffic noise coming in from outside, then you might want to start using earplugs. As for getting the room dark enough, a sleep mask is a good option, too.

Next, you want to make sure your mattress is in good condition. The older a mattress becomes the more likely it will grow to be uncomfortable. Whatever firmness you once had would be long gone after eight years. That is when most manufacturers suggest changing the mattress. What happens to the old one? That is easily taken care of by Junk King Orange County. These are the junk hauling pros who probably remove a mattress a day from homes all across the OC. Getting rid of an old mattress is going to be a big help for getting a good night’s sleep. Junk King Orange County can help with that today.

How To Motivate Your Staff

As a manager or business owner, you will be sharing the success of your company with your staff but ultimately, it will all come back to you. Even if you hire terrific workers, you still need to keep them motivated to do their best to achieve the goals of the business. Here are some ways you can motivate your staff.

Rewards

A small token of appreciation goes a long way towards motivating your staff. There could be some built in rewards for hitting sales targets but beyond that, you might be able to add a vacation day for a job well done throughout the year. Even bringing in doughnuts or a coffee cart for the day as a “thank you” can be a big motivational boost for your staff.

Remind Them of Their Value

It helps to remind your staff how valuable they are to the big picture. Although everyone has their separate assignments, when taken as a whole, they all are working towards the same goal. Remove one member of the team and everyone will feel the impact. This is more than saying, “Keep up the good work.” Instead, it’s about expressing the feeling that the company couldn’t succeed without them.

Host Team-Building Activities

Occasionally your staff will “hit the wall” in terms of their productivity. This is when you’ve got to stop and find a way to escape the monotony of work. Maybe you can take the staff to lunch together as a team but don’t talk about business. Maybe get a box at a sporting event. There are also team-building exercises you can use as a way of getting everyone to bond and excited about the tasks ahead. A good old-fashioned company picnic works, too.

Keep a Clean Work Environment

You probably employ a janitorial staff that comes in every night to empty trash baskets, vacuum and clean up the restrooms. That is very crucial but you might have a lot more cleaning to do in order to provide a nice work environment. That’s when a call to Junk King Orange County can be a big help. One junk removal session with these pros can have your office clear of all the old furniture, equipment and files that is taking up valuable space. Using Junk King Orange County to remove the rubbish from your office is going to be a terrific way to motivate your staff.

Save On Your Kitchen Remodel With The Smart Tips

When was the last time your kitchen was renovated? Replacing a refrigerator doesn’t count. If your kitchen is the same as it was when you moved in several years ago, then you might be long overdue for that renovation. The first concern with any kitchen remodel project is, “how much is this going to cost?” As you start to pull together the prices, you might want to consider some of the following smart tips to help you keep your bottom line from skyrocketing:

kitchen-670247_960_720

Don’t Move the Appliances

You may be tempted to rearrange your appliances and sink. That could prove to be rather costly. Anytime you reroute plumbing or gas lines you’re going to run into major demolition throughout the area. It is much better to keep everything where it is and build out from around it. You might even find it is cheaper to put in a window then to move a sink.

Consider Different Island Options

A center island is a much in demand feature for a kitchen remodel. But those custom-made islands can become very expensive. Instead, keep an eye out for an old table or dresser that can be repurposed for this space. If you’re just looking for an area to eat on and prep meals, then these could be a great alternative. You might even look into estate sales and Craigslist for more inexpensive islands.

Make a Cut Out Instead Of Losing a Wall

An open floor plan is a popular renovation but you have to consider what type of wall it is you need to bring down. If this is a load-bearing wall or one that is hiding water pipes preventing, then it might not be smart to bring it down. However, that doesn’t mean you can have a cut out to open up the space.

Up For Track Lighting versus Recessed Lighting

Recessed lighting means going into the ceiling. That can run up your costs. Track lighting is a more affordable approach to adding lighting to your kitchen and can be just as bold and dynamic as recessed lighting.

Take Care of Your Own Demolition

You can also save money by doing some of the work on your own. The biggest job you could probably tackle is demolition. Once you worked out a plan with the contractor, you will know exactly what needs to be taken down or pulled up. If you can save the day of labor, then you might be able to use those funds elsewhere. The only consideration is what to do with all the debris you create. That’s easily taken care with one call to Junk King Orange County. These are expert junk haulers who have a lot of experience with this type of clean up. In addition to removing all your hazardous construction debris, Junk King Orange County can also take away the rest of the clutter around your house.
