Why You Need Junk Removal In Stockton

Sometimes you can “fight city hall” or at least make your complaint heard. Local Stockton senior citizen Jewel Abraham found that out when she complained to a newspaper about the dire condition of an abandoned lot in her neighborhood. It had become a makeshift dumping ground with no signs of letting up. This problem could quickly become a health and safety hazard and Jewel had enough. When Councilwoman Susan Eggman saw the story she sprang into action. As the rep for District 5, she knew she had to do something.

“Get it done, or I’ll get it done myself,” said Eggman to a local paper. “If an elected official can’t make government work, an elected official shouldn’t be in office.” And that’s just what happened. Even though Eggman has a team of volunteers standing by for the cleanup effort, a crew from the city was dispatched and made short work of that dump ground.

When you get right down to it we all have to take responsibility for our own garbage. There are some that think dumping junk outside of their neighborhood isn’t their problem. Imagine all the effort they go through to load up an old sofa, drive it for several miles until they find an empty lot and just dump it. There’s a much better option and that would be hiring Junk King Stockton.

Junk King is a company whose main mission is to help folks clear out the clutter from their Stockton homes and yards. If you hire Junk King you might actually be setting a good example for your neighbors. What they would see is a Junk King truck arriving on the scheduled appointment day. Two Junk King crew members would be going around your home or property to take away whatever you tell them to. All of that junk will be loaded up onto the truck and drive off. Make no mistake that when Junk King disposes of trash they do it the responsible way. It will be recycled or refurbished or left at a certified and regulated landfill. You’ll then have a clutter free home and Stockton will be just a little bit cleaner.

As for what Junk King can take away, there is pretty much no limit. If something took at least two movers to bring into your house then it will take that same level of manpower to take it away. Junk King Stockton provides that muscle and you won’t be straining your back with any lifting. Why not call Junk King today to see how they can help you with your clutter removal?

New Year’s Resolution 2013 Junk King Stockton

There’s one New Year’s resolution that you could keep which would make you feel great every day of the year. No, not losing weight (which is a good resolution too!). We’re talking about giving your home a makeover. Unlike the popular TV series, you don’t have to tear everything down and start building from scratch. Instead make a resolution for some much needed deep cleaning and decorating. If you set your mind to it you could accomplish the kind of floor to ceiling cleaning that will last for a long time in just a single weekend. Some simple follow up cleaning on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and you’ve got a home that is sparkling for a long time.

What shape are your floors in? If you have carpets you can bring in a professional carpet cleaning company but to save money you could also rent a high-grade carpet cleaner from your local grocery store. It’s amazing how much dirt you can pick up with a few passes of that carpet cleaner. If you have hardwood floors that are scrapped up, it might be time for a refinishing coat. Once again you can rent the equipment such as a sander or polish buffer from your local Home Depot or other hardware store.

Once the floors have been given a makeover it might be time to give the walls in your room a refreshing with new paint job. Here is where you can explore the option of bringing in more of your personality through your choice of wall paint. Yes, basic white is very popular and practical but a warm red or yellow can really transform a room. This is another DIY project that doesn’t have to take up a lot of time or expense. You’ll also have a wonderful sense of accomplishment if you do it yourself.

Before any of those projects can be tackled, you’ll want to get rid of the unused clutter in your home. The best way to tackle that project is by hiring Junk King Stockton. This will put a two-man crew and big truck under your command. Yes, they’ll be doing all the lifting, loading and driving. All you have to do is tell the crew what you want taken away and they’ll handle the rest. And have no fear; the vast majority of what Junk King will be removing could end up at a local recycling center or charity organization for repurposing. That means you’ll be doing your bit for the environment and clean your home all in one trip.

As soon as Junk King can clear out the clutter, you’ll have a better sense of what you’ll want to accomplish when it comes to improving your home. This is one New Year’s resolution that will be easy to keep with Junk King on your side.
