Special Considerations for Foreclosure Cleanups

Anyone involved in a foreclosure knows how complicated a process it is. Because foreclosure forces a property’s occupants out, often at the last minute, it’s not unusual for the resident or tenant to exact some sort of revenge. While the anger may be understandable, the results are anything but pleasant.

Vandalization, broken windows and appliances, piles of trash, and generally filthy conditions are sadly all quite common foreclosure cleanup problems. At Junk King of Sonoma, we believe you shouldn’t have to deal with a foreclosure cleanup on your own. Whether you’re a bank, real estate agent, property management company, or buyer of a foreclosed property, we offer competent, efficient, and reliable foreclosure cleanup services throughout the greater Sonoma area.

Avoid Foreclosure Cleanup Hassles

Foreclosure Cleanups

There are a lot of damages and hazards that can be lurking inside of foreclosed residential or business properties.

  • Safety hazards include waterlogged and/or sagging ceilings, damaged flooring that poses trip hazards, missing handrails and guardrails, broken steps, disconnected utilities, hanging gutters, uncapped gas lines, and more.
  • Water damage in the form of soggy carpets, contamination from sump pump failure, ceiling water stains, damaged plumbing pipes, and active roof leaks.
  • Natural disaster damage such as that caused by fire, smoke, flood, wind, hail, and fallen trees.
  • Health risks including, among others, those associated with standing water, mold infestation, and degrading building materials.

There can also be serious theft and vandalism damages including graffiti, holes in the walls, broken windows and doors, and stolen copper plumbing and electrical wiring. Not to mention piles of trash that could contain unsafe objects like razor blades and broken bottles.

The Many Benefits of Organizing Your Garage

The-Many-Benefits-of-Organizing-Your-Garage-Junk-King-Sonoma-CALet’s face it – garages are often the very definition of out of sight, out of mind. If you’re like most people, organizing your garage is at the bottom of your to-do list; that is, if it’s there at all! Getting your garage in shape, though, doesn’t have to be a dreaded task.

The best way to dive into a garage reorganization is in small separate tasks. Most of the clutter that lives in your garage falls into one of four categories. Set out to tackle one category per weekend, invest in some bins and shelving, and in just one month you’ll have a streamlined space to be proud of. Start with the two easiest areas and the results will inspire you to finish the job.

  • Sporting Equipment

What garage’s dark corners aren’t filled with bikes, ski equipment, golf clubs, and other sports equipment and paraphernalia? Organizing your garage by putting all your equipment together not only makes it neater, but makes everything easier to find. Install some wall tracks that can hold hooks for golf bags and bike racks with shelving above to hold bins for balls, helmets, and other gear.

  • Tools

Over time, even the non-carpenters among us seem to accumulate a large number of tools. Keep a small collection of the most common ones in an easy-to-tote-around tool box. For the rest, peg board and hooks is the way to go. Add a tool shelf or two for over-sized saws, sanders and the like.

  • Personal Belongings

Now it’s time to get down to the more difficult phase of organizing your garage – purging it of clothes and memorabilia. It never fails that an item that’s been stored in a bin for five years is suddenly something you can’t live without. Start with the clothes. The pros recommend sorting clothing into three piles: keep, maybe, and donate. Since these items have probably been stored in the garage for some time, aim for having the donation pile be the largest one. Everything else should be placed in clear, labeled bins and stored on shelves. For decorations, pictures and other keepsakes, place like items together, tuck them into plastic bins, label and store.

  • Junk

Yes, one man’s junk is another’s treasure, but since this is about organizing your garage, be honest about how much of what you have qualifies as junk. Old furniture, electronics, broken or unused toys, can all be picked up and hauled away by a reputable junk removal service.  If you’re having trouble letting go, take the advice of expert organizer Peter Walsh and, before you get started, write down everything you remember that is in the garage. When you come across something you forgot about? Junk it.

The Benefits of Organizing Your Garage

The results that come from the hard work of organizing your garage are extremely rewarding. Less clutter means less stress, and it can also mean a higher resale value for your home. Well-outfitted garages are a plus when it comes to selling your home. And once you finish, it’s just a matter of occasional maintenance to keep things in place. To get started on organizing your garage, visualize the neat and well-organized outcome and then dig in. Who knows, you may even find space for something else – your car!   So contact us at Junk King let us help you haul away that garage junk.

Sonoma Junk Hauling

Do you think you can survive without plastic bags? That could be a challenge for someone with a dog but for the rest of Sonoma County residents there might not be much of a choice. At a recent meeting, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors put the final vote towards supporting an ordinance that would ban carryout plastic bags.

A lot of places up and down the state have already adopted this type of ban. This doesn’t mean you’ll be completely bagless. You can buy a paper bag at the checkout counter for 10-cent a pop or you can bring your own bag. Either way, the goal is to move towards the goal of “zero waste.” That means everything that is thrown out will recycled, repurposed and reused. When you consider that an estimated 260 million plastic bags are used up in Sonoma every year this is going to be a pretty tall order.

Whether you like this proposal or not, there are companies in Sonoma who are already using eco-friendly policies in their business operations. A perfect example would be Junk King Sonoma. These are the expert junk haulers who would like nothing better than to avoid a trip to the landfill. In fact, Junk King goes out of their way to make sure your junk ends up at a local Sonoma recycling center or charity for refurbishing.

The way Junk King works is simple. First, you have to decide what you’re ready to toss out. When it comes to what Junk King will take away that could mean pretty much anything. Top of the list would be all those things you’re hanging onto that are too big to stuff into your trashcan. If you could load these things up in your own car you’d probably would have already tossed them out. We’re talking items like couches, recliners, mattresses and major kitchen appliances.

Next, you set up an appointment for Junk King Sonoma to come out and see what you’re tossing out. They do this because you’re going to be charged based on the amount of space your junk takes up on their truck. Often that free estimate happens at the same time as the removal. That way there are no extra steps. Once the price is agreed to the work can begin. Before you finish writing the check to pay for the job, Junk King could have all your stuff loaded up! Then it’s off to those drop off sites. Don’t worry about sorting your stuff into different recycling piles. Junk King will take care of all of that.
