Preparing for Fall Junk Removal

Everyone has heard of spring cleaning, but why wait until then to clean out the junk you’ve accumulated over the summer? With cold weather approaching, it’s best to start cleaning things out now so you can enjoy a nice, cozy living space, free of useless items that are only taking up space in your home and yard. Not sure where to begin? Here’s what to focus on for the best fall junk removal experience: 


While spring cleaning may focus on scrubbing and dusting, it’s easy to overlook our collections of stuff. The easiest place to start with de-junking is in the closet. If you have a look, chances are that you will see a ton of clothing items that you haven’t worn in years and may have completely forgotten about. Starting here is easy and clears up a ton of space that can be otherwise used for storing more important items. Start the task by dividing items into piles: keep, toss, and donate. Remember that clothes for donation to charities should be in good wearable condition, and warm clothes like sweaters and coats are in high demand at this time of year. 


With summer over, there’s a high probability that you won’t be barbecuing again for a few months, so go ahead and inspect all of your outdoor cooking implements. Anything that is rusted through or has holes should be gotten rid of. Likewise, check out your water hoses, kiddie pools, and other water-based items. If they have any punctures, toss them. If they’re in good condition, store them in a warm place, like your garage; otherwise, the cold weather could cause them to burst or degrade. Don’t forget about natural yard waste as well for junk removal – fallen leaves and branches should be cleaned up regularly to keep your home in tip-top condition. 


If you own a business or work from home, now is a great time to inspect your supplies. It’s pretty common to hoard broken printers, outdated computers, and creaky chairs with the intention of fixing them up someday. If this sounds familiar, take the time to do some fall junk removal of these items. Your office will be much cleaner, and you’ll be able to be much more effective at work in a tidy workspace, with none of the guilt of not being able to fix that fax machine.
