Hoarder Cleanup Help in Raleigh

The first reported incident of hoarding as a disorder can be traced back to the 14th century. Today, there are some medical researchers that figure at least 5% of Americans could be certified as hoarders. Doctors really can’t pinpoint how this disorder pops up but they can defiantly recognize it when it occurs. So can all the neighbors. The help a true hoarder take a team of counselors and psychologists. Usually it reaches that stage when the hoarding has proven to be a health hazard for the hoarder and for the neighborhood.

The goal is to convince the hoarder that they really don’t need all that stuff they are hanging onto. You might be happy to get rid of all your junk if only you had some help. That doesn’t make you a hoarder. It just makes you in need of Junk King Raleigh’s services.

Let’s start with the indoors. Every home has a “storage locker.” This would be the place where all your collected junk goes. When you get a new sofa you put the old couch in this room. If a new stove comes, the old stove goes in the storage room. The minute one bulky item goes there there are usually boxes of stuff that follow. Before you know it you’ve got a full fledge hoarding zone. This could be a spare room, an attic, a basement or garage. No matter where the junk is the Junk King Raleigh crew can move in to move it out. You won’t have to pick up a thing; the JK crew does all the heavy lifting.

Once they’ve sorted through the indoors that same crew can do a tour around your front and back yard to take away anything out there you want disposed off. This will be your chance to clear out the leftover debris from a remodel job or patio makeover. If you’ve done some landscaping then Junk King can also haul off the dirt. Simply put there just isn’t anything that Junk King won’t take away for you.

After it is gone you’re free to do whatever you want with that open space. Did you have something in mind when you first moved into your home? Maybe a home office or arts and crafts workshop? That can be yours again. Call Junk King Raleigh at 1-888-888-JUNK to set up a removal appointment before you get too comfy being a hoarder.

“Computer equipment contains environmentally hazardous waste and should be disposed of properly.” That’s the official word from the state of North Carolina. They have followed up that ominous talk by enacting a state law that bans TVs and computer equipment from being dumped into any landfills in North Carolina. They haven’t left the citizens high and dry when it comes to getting rid of personal e-waste. You can drop off your e-waste at a few certifies centers around Raleigh but there are restrictions.

For instance, here’s what they will accept: “laptop computers (working or broken), flat-screen LCD monitors (working), desktop computers (dual core or faster, working or broken), rechargeable batteries under 2 lbs., laptop batteries, cell phones and cell phone batteries.”

However the list of what they won’t take is a bit longer: “broken flat-screen LCD monitors, CRT monitors, TVs, desktop computers (P4 or older), printers, faxes, copiers or scanners.” What happens if you want to get rid of that stuff?
