There are many Americans who have more stuff than they can handle. In fact, Americans can have as many as 300,000 items in their home. If you’re one such person, then it might be time to look around your home and decide it’s time for junk removal. As you begin the process of sorting through items that need to be removed, here is how you might go about the decluttering process before you call your junk removal team.
Create a Plan
The decluttering process isn’t the same for everyone. The best way to start is to think of a method or plan that works for you. According to One Desk, 54% of Americans said they felt overwhelmed with clutter filling their homes. By creating your own method, you’re less likely to be overwhelmed and get sidetracked. You may want to start decluttering in 10 or 15-minute increments daily until you start to see results. You may also want to schedule a clean-out room by room. Whatever the plan, know that you’ll need to end by calling a junk removal company to finish the job.
Deal With Trash First
Make things easy by focusing on obvious trash first. Call a local junk removal service if you’re becoming overwhelmed with all the junk in front of you. You can rent containers for as long as you need to. You may be able to move some small items if you just want furniture picked up, but it might be best to let the professionals handle it if you have too much to handle alone.
Consider Recycling or Donation
It can feel better decluttering, knowing that you’re giving items away to people who may need them. At our company, our team strives to make sure most items are reused or recycled. Give us a call to learn more about our efforts to be environmentally friendly.
Get Rid of Big Objects
With large items like pianos, hot tubs, or furniture, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Don’t worry about injuring yourself or damaging your property by sliding, rolling, or lifting these oversized objects. We offer flexible pick-up times so you can plan around your schedule.
You don’t have to live in a house filled with a ton of belongings you don’t need. With the right plan in place, you can have a decluttering project that goes smoothly and can make your home more open. Plus, your items may be able to be reused or recycled.
