What Stays, What Goes: An Office Cleanup Checklist

The top 2 reasons for an office cleanup are relocating/closing a business or running out of storage room at your current location. Another time you may need an office cleanup is when you’re taking over a space that was abandoned by the previous tenant or owner.

No matter what the circumstances, Junk King of Sacramento can handle your office cleanup job quickly and safely.

Our reliable cleanup crews can haul way old desks, chairs, filing cabinets, conference tables, outdated or broken equipment, and other debris. From the tiniest home office to multiple corporate floors, we do it all.

If you’ve never done an office cleanup before, here are a few tips to help make the process as smooth as possible.

Hiring a Junk Removal Service

Office CleanupThis can make or break your office cleanup experience, so do some research before hiring a junk removal company.

  • Ask about upfront pricing. Junk King of Sacramento offers free estimates, pays our trained workers a fair market rate, and offer what we believe is the best value in the Sacramento area. And we offer our customers 4 ways to get an estimate: on-site, by texting us a photo, discussing cleanup needs by phone, or by using our online pricing estimator.
  • Make sure the company you choose is fully licensed, insured, and offers a good guarantee.

Check Building Requirements

  • If you own or lease space in a commercial building, find out if your lease requires after hours cleanup services or if the work can be done during normal business hours.
  • If necessary, reserve the loading dock and/or freight elevator.
  • Find out exactly where a truck or dumpster can be parked and if you need to reserve a space.

Prepare the Area

If you’re just doing a general office cleanup, you probably don’t have to do a lot of prep work. But if you’re moving heavy furniture and equipment, it’s always a good idea to protect the floors and walls from damage. Our crews are trained to be extremely careful and diligent about protecting your property, but accidents can happen!

Time for Cleanup!

Once you have all your preliminary ducks in a row, it’s time to think about how to make our office cleanup a quick and efficient operation.

  • As much as possible, decide in advance what’s staying and what’s going.
  • Use different color sticky notes to indicate which is which.

It’s always a good idea to have someone from your company present during an office cleanup so that nothing is disposed of that you wanted to keep. If the cleanup is one where you’re preparing a space to move into, this is less of an issue—you probably want everything hauled out!

Your Car Needs a Home: How a Garage Cleanout Service Can Help

Studies say one in four homeowners think their garage is too cluttered to fit their car. Based on experience, we suspect the number is even higher! If your car’s been left sitting outside its rightful home for far too long, a garage cleanout service may be just what you need.

Reclaim Your Garage

Garage Cleanout ServiceWe all accumulate things. Lots of them. Most are usually needed when bought, but when they outgrow their usefulness, we seem to have a lot of trouble just tossing them out. So it’s completely understandable why you may have lots of unused stuff taking up more space than the stuff you actually use does! Junk King of Sacramento can help you let it go.

Recognize any of these items in your own garage?

  • Old heavy wooden headboards and metal bedframes
  • Energy-sucking appliances like refrigerators and window a/c units
  • 1990s era wall units
  • Boxes of books
  • Old clothing
  • Unused skis, bicycles, camping equipment or kids’ toys

How to Organize Your Garage

Experts say that if you haven’t used something in two years you probably never will, and you certainly won’t miss it when it’s gone. If you have a hard time letting go of things for sentimental reasons, they suggest taking a picture and then donating the item so other people can make better use of it.

Junk King is the Sacramento area’s first and largest green recycling junk removal service and since 2005 we’ve been encouraging our customers to see donating and repurposing as a philanthropic endeavor that reduces their environmental footprint.

Once you’ve cleared the garage of unwanted items, here’s how to keep it organized so there’s room for your car and whatever other purpose you want the space to serve.

  • Divide the garage into zones that store like items such as lawn and garden equipment, tools, hobby supplies, and sporting goods.
  • There’s a lot of uninterrupted wall space in your garage—so use it to your advantage. Modular hooks and pegboards for items like bikes and tools together with shelving for seasonal and less-frequently used items help free up significant floor space.
  • Bulky equipment like lawn mowers should be placed in corners where they have less chance of getting bumped by your car.

How a Home Junk Removal Service Can Improve Your Health

Anyone with overflowing closets and cabinets or a totally junk-filled basement can relate: too much stuff causes a lot of stress. Not only is it annoying to look at, the thought of cleaning it out can be overwhelming. But did you know that hiring a home junk removal company to get the excess stuff out of your house once and for all can be beneficial to your physical, mental and emotional health? It’s true.

Home Junk Removal and Your Health

Home Junk RemovalHaving too much stuff is draining and frustrating. Experts say people often describe it as “suffocating.” So, what do you gain by calling in the home junk removal pros?

  • Improved focus, for one. When too much stuff is competing for your attention, you have a more difficult time narrowing your focus to concentrate on the most important one.
  • Catharsis is good for the soul, and decluttering can help you get rid of a lot of pent-up emotions. People often hang on to things they don’t want or use because there are emotional attachments to them. When you remove them, you can end up feeling more in control of your life.
  • There can be a financial incentive to using a home junk removal service. As you sort through items you’ll likely find a few valuables that you can sell for a few extra dollars. You may even have enough to cover the cost of having the rest hauled away!
  • Finally, removing unwanted furniture, appliances, and other household goods has a direct impact on the aesthetics of your home. That means you’ll feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Sacramento Cabinet Removal and Disposal

It doesn’t cost anything to get an estimate for a kitchen remodel. At least it shouldn’t. If you put out the call to a couple of contractors you’ll be amazed at the variety of estimates you’ll be getting. Before setting up your first estimate appointment you should have some sense of what you want accomplished. You can get a pretty good idea of what your options are by taking a tour of a showroom at your nearest Home Depot. Then see what the contractors have in mind. You’ll want to find a contractor that is equal parts creative and someone you can work alongside without feeling intimidated. This doesn’t mean you’ll be swinging a hammer (unless you want to!) but you should be able to make adjustments along the way is something isn’t to your liking.

You’ll also save a lot of money with the proper planning. Suppose you want to go with granite countertops? You don’t have to accept the price that a contractor might give you. There is nothing wrong with finding your own granite distributor, picking out your slab and having it cut to order. You could end up saving big bucks this way. This goes for all the fixtures and appliances. Don’t leave it to a contractor to pad the prices. Do the shopping on your own.

Another way to reduce costs is to do the demolition yourself. All you’ll need are some work gloves, a hammer and screw driver to take down the cabinets. It’s not that complicated. The trick part is making sure you have a proper method or getting rid of all those cabinets because they won’t fit in your trashcan. You don’t want to get into renting a dumpster and having that on your property for an extended period of time. The best option is to schedule a debris removal with Junk King.

Here in Sacramento, Junk King Sacramento has been helping the locals get rid of all their oversized items. This has allowed homeowners and business owners alike to reclaim valuable space on their property. But Junk King can also help clean up all the messes we make such as ripping down cabinets or pulling up tile. They’re also very handy at clearing out yard debris such as fallen tree limbs or bushes. After loading up their truck the Junk King crew will be heading off to the nearest recycling center to deposit the bulk of your collected items. They are dedicated to keeping Sacramento green and clean. You can do your part by making sure all you’re throwing out is handled properly. Let Junk King Sacramento show you the way!

Junk Removal for Sacramento Realtors

Don’t look now but the Sacramento real estate market is creeping back to full vitality. Want proof? RE/MAX has posted figures about returning agents and those numbers definitely ticking back up. Of course, they like to toot their horn a bit as they did with the Sacramento Bee.

“RE/MAX has always attracted top-performing agents, and that’s especially true after everything we’ve been through in recent years,” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO, told the paper.  “Because of the many innovations we’ve put in place, the best agents know that RE/MAX is where they want to be in this new market environment.”

If you’re a realtor working for that real estate giant then you probably already know about the change in the business. You might have seen more agents setting up shop in your office. You might find new or old faces at open houses. Bottom line: things are starting to get a bit more competitive. The question then becomes how are you going to maintain your edge? One proactive step you can take is to go after those listings which might not be outwardly attractive but look great on paper. If that’s the case then all you need is a little cosmetic work and you’re good to go. That’s why you should have the number for Junk King Sacramento on stand-by alert.

Junk King Sacramento is made up of junk removal specialists. They’ve been helping folks all over the Sacramento area clear the clutter from their homes, garage, attics and closets. Thanks to their efforts, Junk King has also managed to divert a large portion of everything they collect away from landfills. Going green is extremely important to Junk King.

So, how can they help your broker business? When you see one of those “undesirable”  looking homes loaded with trash or debris, don’t fret. Call Junk King Sacramento and within a day they can have that property looking fantastic and ready for action on the market. Most prospective buyers lack real imagination when it comes to their houses. That’s why you often stage homes to make them more enticing. Cleaning out garbage is the same.

No matter how disgusting the stuff left behind might be, Junk King will take it out as if it was never there in the first place. That includes drapes, rugs, furniture and kitchen appliances.

Sacramento Cardboard Disposal and Recycling

According to a recent article in the Sacramento Bee, when Kyle Truitt was helping his friend, Josh Cox, move into a new home they became frustrated with all those cardboard boxes they needed to do the packing and moving. Because these friends were dedicated recyclers they wondered if there could be an alternative.

“He and I both try to recycle as much as we can in our own daily lives and leave as little footprint as we can,” Truitt told the Sacramento Bee. “It was one of those things where we thought, ‘There’s got to be an easier way.’”

As it happens there was an easier way; one that Truitt and Cox created. They co-founded an eco-friendly moving box rental company called Green Box Go. How this works is that anyone who is planning to move can rent industrial-strength plastic boxes from the company. These bins measure 27 inches long, 17 inches wide and 12 inches high can be used for packing up all kinds of personal belongings. What’s more is that they can be reused over a 100 times instead of the three or four times that a typical cardboard box can be used. After every rental Green Box Go cleans out the boxes using non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally safe cleaning products. This innovation in moving is finding a lot of willing customers who are looking for a more eco-friendly way to get from point A to point B.

“Our goal is to eliminate cardboard boxes from the moving experience,” Truitt said. “When you use cardboard boxes, you can’t really use them more than three or four times without the box wearing out or having to re-tape them. Indiana doesn’t really have anything like this, so why not try to put it out there and make Indiana moving just a little bit greener.”

If you are now smacking your forehead and exclaiming “d’oh!” because you didn’t rent reusable boxes don’t be too hard yourself. After all this is a very new concept but now that you know you’ll be ready for your next move. Unfortunately, you might now be stuck stacks of cardboard boxes taking up valuable storage space in your home. You can get rid of those cardboard boxes and do your bit for the environment by hiring a professional junk haulers who specialize in recycling like Junk King Sacramento.

A professional junk hauler is someone who is dependable and responsible. This is their business so they’re going to treat you as a valuable customer. When you call up to schedule an appointment to remove your cardboard boxes and other junk items ask them what they intend to do with your stuff. Hopefully, they’ll tell you how every effort will be made sure that your junk ends up at the right recycling facility. As you get rid of your cardboard boxes you can also get rid of anything else that you dragged along in that move. Even if you’ve been living in your home for a long time it’s never too late to get rid of the clutter.

Sacramento Tire Recycling and Disposal

The Environmental Protection Agency is chock full of all kinds of facts and figures regarding how Americans dispose of things. For instance, the EPA has found that over 290 million automobile tires are tossed away by Americans every year. That’s a lot of a rubber! The good news is that 80% of those tires are being recycled, repurposed and reused. So just where could your recycled tire end up?

One stop could be a playground. Recycled tires that are shredded up can be spread out like mulch around the playground area to act as a cushion for all those stumbles and falls. A lot of recycled tires also make their way right back to other automobiles. That shredded rubber can be used to make exhaust pipes, brake pads and insulation. A recycled tire can also be woven into floor mats or used as pickup truck bed liners. Civil engineers have found a use for recycled tires in the form of what they call crumb rubber. As you can infer by the title crumbs of rubber from a tire are poured into asphalt and become a kind of rubberized road. This is a great way to save money on repaving projects and it also makes for a smoother and quieter ride.

In Sacramento, there are exactly 6 facilities recommended by the city for tire recycling. These are typical business operations which are open during the week at specific hours. In other words, you have a finite amount of time and amount of destinations where to take any tire you would like to recycle. While it’s great that there are these centers around Sacramento that doesn’t mean it’s always convenient for your purposes. Imagine having to leave work to load up the back of your SUV with a couple of tires then drive to the city limits and dump them off. Yes, it’s a productive use of those tires but not really a productive use of your time. This is a job that’s better suited for Junk King Sacramento.

Junk King is a local Sacramento business that specializes in all kinds of junk removal. Junk King also is proud of the fact that they are able to divert upwards of 60% of all the material they collect to recycling centers. That’s a no-brainer!

When you hire Junk King Sacramento to take away your old tires you could also take advantage of them to remove any other unwanted item you have around your home. Think about those things that you pass by every day while muttering “why is that still here?” It no longer has to be there once you hire Junk King. As you gather up your pile of junk for removal you don’t have to worry about designating what you want to go to be recycled. Junk King will handle that for you!

Sacramento Recycling – Get Rid of E-Waste

So how did you spend e-waste collection month? Surely, you knew that March was e-waste collection month in Sacramento. It seems as though the entire city banded together to clear up the clutter of e-waste. Home Depot stores took in your old batteries. Many Whole Foods markets scheduled e-waste drop off days. Certainly all of those special recycling centers run by the city were open for business (and they still are!). If you cleared out your home or apartment of all your e-waste clutter, then good on ya! If not, you don’t have to wait until next year to properly dispose of that e-waste or any other recyclable materials.
It’s easy to figure out what is e-waste especially when you consider the “e” stands for electronic. That would mean anything you plug in would count. Computers, monitors, televisions, answering machines, fax machines, copiers; they would all be on the list. You might be surprised to know that those new energy-saving light bulbs that look like pig tails are also considered e-waste. Some of them contain mercury and shouldn’t be tossed out in the garbage. Once those bulbs break that mercury can be released and that’s not going to be good for anyone.
Speaking of hazardous waste, beyond all the electronics that should be recycled there’s a whole range of other products that shouldn’t be poured down the drain or tossed out with other garbage. The North Area Recovery Station is set up to not only take in your household hazardous waste, but also to repurpose it for reuse. Right now Sacramento residents manage to divert over 10,000 pounds of these kinds of material every month. The most popular reuse is paint. Remnants of paint cans are mixed together to create fresh, perfectly usable paint at a low cost.
Sacramento residents have always been on the frontline of recycling. That’s why the city has such a low overall carbon footprint. Beyond e-waste collection month, everyone gets into the act by recycling their papers and plastics. And thanks to those many municipal recycling centers, it’s easier for folks to drop off those bigger piles of recyclables that can’t fit into their weekly pickup trashcan. Are you taking advantage of those centers? It would be understandable if you don’t always have time to haul your recyclables off to them.
Most weekends are chock full of events like the kids’ soccer games, spending the day at the Sacramento zoo or taking visitors on a tour of Old Sacramento. Do you really have the time to dedicate for a recycle center run? That might be the reason why some of your junk has begun to pile up. Don’t feel guilty. Instead make a call to a local Sacramento junk recycling company like Junk King and arrange for a pickup.  Schedule an on site estimate by calling 1-888-888-JUNK or booking online.
