Perhaps one of the most distressing and emotionally stressful situations that can occur for homeowners or residential tenants is a foreclosure or eviction.
However, these scenarios can be difficult for landlords, foreclosure company representatives, and real estate agents. In addition to managing the difficulties of homeowner or tenant concerns and demands, there are the timelines and legal requirements that come with the foreclosure or eviction processes.
One of the common tasks that falls on a landlord, real estate professional, or finance company agent, is clearing a property of abandoned property and debris and cleaning the property afterward.
This is why Junk King Washington DC specializes in foreclosure cleanouts and bulk trash and junk removal.
There are some projects and tasks that shouldn’t be a “do it yourself” endeavor, nor something that has to be managed and overseen by those with other responsibilities. And one of those projects is carrying out a house cleanout whether the result of an eviction or a foreclosure.
Currently, in the U.S., we have seen the end of the federally mandated eviction moratorium.
Back in 2020, Congress instituted a federal eviction moratorium, along with several extensions. Later, an eviction moratorium was issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that was supposed to last until October 2021.
However, the Supreme Court ultimately declared that the CDC’s moratorium extension was deemed unconstitutional. In addition, the federally mandated foreclosure moratorium ended on July 31, 2021. Although President Biden announced a temporary halt on evictions in many parts of the country, the initiative did not specify additional relief for homeowners who have fallen behind on mortgages because of the pandemic.
While many states have instituted their own eviction moratoriums, these either have or will soon expire, as well. And a combination of a continuing COVID-19 epidemic and an increasingly unaffordable housing market have created a “perfect storm” of an eviction and housing crisis.
According to a post at Move.org,
“COVID-19 couldn’t have hit at a worse time. Surging housing prices combined with income lost due to the global pandemic have left more than 11 million Americans at risk of eviction. In a normal year, landlords submit nearly four million eviction filings. COVID-19 eviction moratoria prevented as many as 1.6 million evictions, but the courts may soon be flooded with residential eviction cases from tenants suffering financial hardship.”
As a result, real estate agents, landlords, property managers, and financial institutions holding mortgages may soon be inundated with foreclosure filings, evictions, and all the accompanies these events like issuing an eviction notice, conducting a foreclosure, and contracting clean out services.
Which means the need for a professional junk removal service to take care of the junk removal and trash removal.
Perhaps one of the most common tasks facing professional clean-out services when cleaning homes after an eviction is trash removal.
Most former residents will usually do a good job of removing all of their belongings and leaving the property is decent shape. However, since the circumstances are obviously less than pleasant, it is also understandable that these departing homeowners and renters are unlikely to clean the house.
In fact, it’s not at all uncommon for properties to be filled with piles of trash, debris, and assorted junk items piled here and there or scattered from room to room. And, while some landlords or agents may feel that this can easily be taken care of themselves, many others realize that their time is better spent on what they do best.
So, the better option is to leave the bulk trash and debris removal to the experts.
A Professional Furniture Removal Service for Old Furniture Removal
In some properties, not only will there be piles of rubbish and trash, but oftentimes the previous tenants or owners will have left behind old furniture.
Anyone who has had to move large furniture pieces knows that most furniture is heavy, bulky, awkward to maneuver, and difficult to move. And that’s just moving it! When it comes to old furniture removal, however, not only do the abandoned pieces have to be moved, they also have to be picked up and loaded into a truck.
And, once loaded and secured in the truck bed, they have to be hauled to a suitable location or facility for disposal, which means unloading them, as well.
Not only is this difficult, labor-intensive, and potentially dangerous work, it is certainly not the kind of project a real estate agent or landlord needs to be taking on.
Which is why a professional furniture removal service like Junk King Washington DC is the better option.
And, if a vacated home filled with trash and old, broken furniture items isn’t enough to make this task an onerous one, it is not at all uncommon for these properties to be left with old appliances still on the premises.
Furniture is bad enough when it comes to the difficulties of moving, loading, and hauling. But household appliances can be far more challenging!
When you consider that a medium front-loading washer can weigh as much as 180 pounds. A gas, or electric, range is equally bulky and can typically weigh 130 to 220 pounds. And a large, French Door refrigerator can easily weigh over 300 pounds.
Not only do movers risk bodily injury, but there is also the very real risk of damaging the walls and floors of the property itself while removing the old appliances. And this simply adds to the expenses of making the home market-ready with unplanned repairs.
Which, of course, is another reason why the expert professionals at Junk King Washington DC specialize in services such as appliance removal.
