How Much Junk is Too Much?
It’s very, very difficult to have a home that is completely and totally junk-free. There’s always going to be a little bit of junk making its way into your home. For example, there’s the classic junk drawer in just about every home. This drawer is full of odds and ends. It likely contains an open package of batteries, a few random screws, a charger cable for who knows what, and other random things. Do you need every one of these items? Probably not. Some of it is junk, but it’s a small amount of junk. Most people wouldn’t be bothered by it. However, when you have a basement that’s full of old furniture, busted appliances, and boxes full of stuff you’ll never use again, it’s wasted space. You could be doing so much more with that room, but instead, the junk has taken over.
The level of tolerance for junk is going to be different for each person. Some may start to get irritated by a few old pieces of mail staying on the counter for several days. Others may be fine with a closet that’s half-full of stuff they haven’t touched for years. As a good rule, though, you should consider getting rid of junk when you have so much that it’s impacting your daily life. If you don’t have space on your end table for drinks, your closets are overflowing, or you can’t park in the garage because of junk, it’s time to do something about it.
Space is important. Even if you don’t need space for something new, getting rid of junk can still help your home breathe. Getting rid of clutter will help give you that open, light space that simply feels better. And Junk King is here to help you with the job, making the process of cleaning out your home easy and stress-free.

Tips for Getting Rid of Junk
So what does it take to actually get rid of all that junk? It depends on what type of junk you have. If you know you’ve got an old sofa and a busted washing machine in the garage, getting rid of it is as simple as calling Junk King. Just make an appointment with us, and we will come and haul it away. With our no contact junk removal service, you don’t even have to be home.
Just drag the junk outside and let us know where it will be. If the junk you’re trying to get rid of is hiding in closets, drawers, cabinets, or other areas, though, you may have to do a little more work. Here are some tips for cleaning out your home.
Start with a Plan
Decide which room you’re going to clean today and focus on just that room. It can be overwhelming to take on the whole house, so break down your cleaning project into areas that you know you can realistically get done. Sometimes, that might mean working on just your closet instead of the entire bedroom. That’s okay. As long as progress is being made and you’re getting rid of stuff you don’t need, you’re on the right track! And for all of the items you don’t need, give us a call and we’ll take them away.
Separate Things into Piles
Sorting through things is more difficult than simply throwing things away, but not all of the stuff you want to get rid of is technically junk. You may have clothes that are still in good condition, but you don’t wear them any longer. These can go into a donate or sell pile, while things such as an old printer that doesn’t work anymore go into the trash pile. When it comes to removing the trash pile.
Organize as You Go
To keep junk from coming back, you need to make certain you organize the things that you’re keeping. Otherwise, you could easily end up with more junk collecting in your closets and cabinets. Organizing things also helps ensure that you’re getting the most out of the space you have. When items are organized, they tend to take up less space. It’s also much easier to find
them and to see what you have. If you don’t realize you have something, you could end up buying it again, which is wasteful.
Have Everyone Pitch In
If you live by yourself, all the sorting and organizing are on you, but if you have a family, you need everyone to pitch in. You can’t make decisions on what other people want to keep or know what they use on a regular basis. Each person should, at the very least, be responsible for their bedroom, bathroom, and other spaces they use regularly.
What Do You Do with Junk?
Once you’ve cleaned and organized everything, you have to decide what to do with all the items you want to get rid of. While you could try to handle it all yourself, it may not be as easy as it seems. If you have a lot of clothing to get rid of, it’s simple enough to load them up in your car and take them to a donation center. But what do you do with large and heavy items such as sofas, chairs, tables, refrigerators, washing machines, and other items? If you don’t have a truck or other vehicle that can handle them, you can’t haul them away yourself. That’s when you call Junk King. We will haul away just about everything. We deal with furniture, appliances, electronics, and much more. We’ll take tree limbs, debris from your deck, and even old hot tubs and boats. As long as it’s not hazardous waste, it can go in our truck.
We don’t just trash everything, either. If your sofa or chair is still in good condition, we will donate it to a local charity, so it gets reused. After we’ve donated what we can, we will look at what items are left that can be recycled. We firmly believe in diverting as much as possible away from the landfill, so if it can be recycled, it will be.
