The Estate Cleaning Service Process

  • Are there valuable items such as artwork or antiques that need a valuation or appraisal conducted? If so, we recommend moving these items to a consignment company or auction house.
  • If you’re unsure of the value of certain items, consider meeting with an estate consultant who can help you decide what should be kept, sold, donated, or discarded.

Office Furniture Removal: 4 Benefits to Hiring the Pros

Preparing to get rid of old, broken, or unwanted office furniture? Thinking of doing the job yourself? Before you do, we’d like to tell you why working with a professional office furniture removal company is the way to go. Junk King of Sacramento has the skills and experience you need to quickly and painlessly clean out your unneeded office furniture. Bringing one of our teams in to do the job helps you avoid a host of problems that could occur by going it alone: injuries, loss of work time, and office wall, door, and floor damage are just a few. Our office furniture removal services save you money, time and your sanity. Here are four terrific benefits you get by choosing the pros.

1. Proven Expertise

Office Furniture Removal Many people think office furniture is just like the furniture they have at home. It’s not! In most cases it’s designed to much higher standards and specifications. It also tends to be sturdier, heavier, and more complex than it appears. Our trained team members know how to efficiently and safely take apart, secure, and remove your office furniture in a way that most non-professionals do not.

2. Enhanced Safety

Seems like every day we hear a horror story of someone who wound up at the emergency room because of injuries that happened during an office move. And in most cases the culprit was, you guessed it, the office furniture. Junk King of Sacramento’s employees are specially trained and insured. They’ll safely remove your office furniture, efficiently haul it away, and clean up your space before they leave so no one trips and falls over forgotten bits and pieces.

3. Professional Integrity

Every minute lost to inefficiency affects your bottom line. When you try to do your own office furniture removal it can often turn into a 3-day or more affair. Working with Junk King ensures:

  • Outstanding on-time, reliable furniture removal services that provide unparalleled speed and value.
  • Exceptional customer service that includes easy ways for you to stay in touch during the entire removal process.
  • Unbeatable prices and guarantees.

Most of all, because we know how important it is to know that you, your employees, and your office space are fully protected, we offer you peace of mind. We’re fully insured which means you won’t be held liable for any accidents during the office furniture removal process. And if for any reason you need to reschedule your removal, we work with you to get the job done when it best suits your schedule, not ours.

Appliance Recyclers in Sacramento

Next to new bathrooms, kitchen remodels are the most popular jobs for a contractor. Although there will be a period of time when your household routines will be disrupted, in the end you could end up with a spectacular new kitchen that will greatly add to your home’s value. If you have a hankering to turn a kitchen remodel into a “Do It Yourself” type of project then there are few things you should be aware of.

First of all, when it comes to taking down the old cabinets don’t reach for the sledgehammer. Yes, it will be a lot of fun to smash things up and you still might get a chance to do that. However, your cabinets should all be taken down like they were put up with a screwdriver and piece by piece. If you’re going to disconnect the water lines under the sink make sure you’ve got a bucket standing by to catch the overflow.

If there are some walls to come down, once again hold off on the sledgehammer. First use a smaller hammer to punch some holes into the walls to see where the studs and electrical wiring is located. Then you’re clear to swing that sledgehammer! While all this is going on, you should have a box fan in the window or door to help pull out the construction dust.

Once you’ve created a mess like that you’re going to need someone to come by and pick it all up. That would be Junk King of Sacramento. These are the junk experts who will be able to load up all your kitchen debris. They will also be able to take away your old kitchen appliances in the same trip.

When Junk King hauls away your stuff, they make sure it will be properly disposed of. In the vast majority of cases, this means recycling those items. Whether it is your stove, dishwasher, fridge or washing machine they could all be dismantled and melted down into scrap. You won’t have to worry about finding the right facility to dump off your recyclables. The Junk King crew will take care of all of that.

They will also be able to load up any unwanted furniture, mattresses, box springs or bulky junk items you want to clear out of your home. This could be your shot at finally emptying out your garage and attic. If you’re worried about costs, don’t be. When you add up the time you’ll save, the dumping fees you won’t be paying and the truck rental you don’t have to bother with you’ll find that Junk King is extremely affordable. You’re only going to be charged based on the amount of space your junk will take up on the Junk King truck. It doesn’t get any better than that! Call Junk King Sacramento and get help removing your appliances and the rest of your junk!

Sacramento Stove Removal

Can you tell a cook by how messy their kitchen gets? During the actual prep work and cooking it’s common to create splashes and spills. The best approach is a “clean as you go” plan that has you staying on top of all the utensils you’re using. However, there are times when cleaning as you go isn’t practical and that would be when the oven is going full blast. You simply have to wait until the range cools down before you can tackle a spill otherwise it might crack. The best bet for oven cleaner is either a commercial cleaner, ammonia or common baking soda.

Be careful with what type of sponge or clothe you use for the clean up to avoid scratches. You should get into the habit of wiping down the stovetop every day. If your oven gets crusty after cooking try and clean it before your next big meal otherwise you’ll find unwanted smoke wafting out.

Those are all common sense cleaning tips but all of your due diligence with cleaning won’t matter if your stove simply isn’t functioning. Like other appliances in your kitchen a stove is not meant to last a lifetime. After 8 to 10 years it might be time to make the switch. That can actually be a good thing because the newer models of stoves are designed to be more energy efficient. You can also step up your cooking game by getting an oven that is convection. That provides for the heat to circulate through your food for more even cooking. All the master chefs go convection!

After you’ve picked out your new stove you’re going to need to get rid of the old one. This is not a complicated operation when you hire Junk King Sacramento to get the job done. That holds for getting rid of your stove and any other junk item. Folks who have used Junk King are singing their praises.

“Junk King is a fantastic service! Especially when you don’t have the time or energy to make multiple trips to the dump or host a garage sale,” writes Morgan of Placervill. “One thing I especially like about Junk King is that they recycle much of what is collected. I like eco-conscious companies. Fair price too.”

Lori from El Dorado Hills has a similar positive experience, “New to the area I have used Junk King twice for removal of junk. The two guys ( Daryl and Rob) that came out both times could not have been more pleasant and efficient,” she writes. “They called prior to arriving and were prompt.  After the removal they swept up the area so that everything was tidy. I will turn to Junk King for any jobs I have in the future. Job well done!”

Lawn Mower Disposal In Sacramento

What makes the perfect lawnmower? The answer to that question comes down to a matter of personal preference. Obviously, you have to consider your own terrain and what works best for your grass but you certainly have plenty of mower types to pick from.

The “green” way of cutting grass would be with the reel mowers. These are the push mowers with a tumbling set of seven rotating blades. This is the most quiet and simple way of mowing grass and is perfect for a small patch of lawn. Not only will you be efficiently cutting grass but you’ll also be cutting back on your carbon footprint. Electric lawn mowers are also pollution-free in terms of carbon emissions. They are easy to start and are maintenance-free except for blade sharpening. Nowadays, there are electric mowers which operate on a rechargeable battery that can go for up to 90 minutes. That’s a good option if you don’t want to bother with lassoing an electric cord every time you need to cut the grass.

Gas mowers come in two types: The ones you push and the ones you ride. You’ll get more power with these types of lawnmowers but you have to go through the bother of filling up gas cans and carting them back and forth. On a property which a lot of land, the riding mower is probably the best bet. Depending on where you live, you could even ride it to the gas station for a fill up!

Shopping for a new lawnmower should also have you looking at options like wheel traction, cutting width and starting mechanism. Do you want to pull that cord or flip a switch? You also want to consider where your cut grass is going to go. Will it fly into a discharge bag or do you want it spread over the lawn for raking up later?

Naturally, getting rid of your old lawnmower has to be a consideration. You probably don’t have the storage space to keep two lawnmowers in your garage or shed. Why should you? But you can’t put that old mower out on the curb. This is a job for Junk King Sacramento.  These are the junk removal specialists who won’t have a problem disposing of your rusty lawnmower.

It will be loaded up on the back of their truck during your pre-scheduled removal appointment. This is the same appointment that will allow you to completely clean out your garage, basement or attic of any junk you’ve been eager to toss out. When you’ve got a Junk King Sac crew and a huge truck at the ready, there is no end to what you can get rid of!

Sacramento Bulk Item Pickup

Sadly,  storms and weather aren’t only affecting the east coast lately.  Recently, four separate tornadoes that ripped through the Sacramento area caused some major damage. Roof shingles were torn off, trees were uprooted and fences were levels. The National Weather Service clocked the winds at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Although small on the scale of storms, they still packed plenty of wallop.

These tornadoes caught a lot of folks by surprise. Even though these types of weather formations are no stranger to the area they typically show up in the spring as opposed to the early fall. Chalk it up to another case of wacky weather! Fortunately, no one has ever been killed by a tornado that struck northern California. But that doesn’t mean they are spared the cleanup.

Sacramento Treadmill and Exercise Machine Disposal

California Family Fitness is coming to K Street in a big way. This downtown area of Sacramento is getting a major makeover with the appearance of several shops and restaurants. Now a super gym is moving into the home of the former Rite Aid at 1012 K Street. This is a 31,000 square foot space that is going to make for an amazing gym. Here’s how they describe what’s coming in:

“The $3.5 million gym would have rooftop space with such sports as volleyball, badminton and bocce ball as well as a fire pit and lounge area with a water feature. The gym also would have most of the other typical features of a California Family Fitness gym, but with more of an urban flair, a Sacramento city staff report said.”

Add to that all the brand new, state-of-the-art gym equipment, classes, juice bar and on site certified trainers and you can see why becoming a member would be a huge advantage for your workout program. Not to mention the fact that when you finish working out, you can take a quick shower and change into a hot outfit and head out to K Street for even more fun. All of this is sounding a lot better than climbing on board that old treadmill you’ve got in your garage or spare room.

If you’re really serious about getting into shape then you need the right equipment. One or two pieces in your home aren’t going to cut it. Joining a gym also gets you out of the house. If you’ve spent all day at work or all day dealing with the kids then the last thing you want to do is be trapped inside working up a sweat. At the gym you’ll have room to move around and terrific people to talk with. It could just become the highlight of your day.

But what about all that home gym equipment? Three words: Junk King Sacramento. They are the Sacramento junk removal specialists who will make getting rid of that equipment a snap. They’ll also make sure it is properly disposed off.

Sacramento Air Conditioner Disposal

Ask any real estate agent what’s the number two selling feature for a home (aside from “location”) and they’ll probably tell you “central air.” But there is a drawback with central air and that’s those crazy electric bills. Unless it is a really efficient “smart” form of central air you’ll have no choice but to cool off the entire house even if you’re basically just using the living room and your bedroom. Believe it or not, you’ll find many folks who have a home with central air that opt for a unit air conditioner for a single room use. Sure, they’ll crank up the central AC when company comes over but for the most part it makes better economical sense to just keep a single unit running.

If you’re someone who enjoys the benefits of a unit air conditioner then you know how important an appliance that is especially on days when the thermometer outdoors rises and that’s just what has been happening this summer. A lot of ACs have been working overtime. Depending on how old those units are there could be some serious wear and tear on those appliances which might lead to thoughts of replacement. If you’re in the market for a new air conditioner then you’ll want to take into account some buying suggestions. Even swapping out an old model for a new model in the same window might not be the best use of that unit.

First of all, you should measure the room you want to get cool. That measurement is going to determine how powerful an AC you should be looking at. It might be that you really need to bump up your BTU output. The goal is to make sure your AC can circulate air in a room or two. That cool air isn’t going to go around corners or down a long hallway. You’ll also want to measure the window that the unit will be going into even if you’ve had a unit there for years think about starting from scratch.

Because you’re using a unit that will be running for long hours you’ll also want to look into an EnergyStar rated model and one that has warranties. An EnergyStar label will let you know that the model is meeting all the requirements put forth by the EPA about energy efficiency. It’s going to be the model that will lower your costs. As for warranties, this is not an appliance you want to take chances that it won’t work.

The other consideration to make is what to do with the old unit. That’s where a single call to Junk King Sacramento can solve the problem. Not only can the Junk King Sac crew carry out your old AC without a hassle but they’ll also make sure it is properly disposed of. That’s very important when it comes to air conditioners because of the potentially harmful elements contained within.  They also are fairly heavy, with sharp edges – it’s not worth attempting to haul it off on your own.   No worry with Junk King Sacramento right around the corner! The sooner you call the sooner you can get cooled off.
