Emotional & Physical Benefits of Decluttering Your Home

Cutting down on clutter is more than just a minimalism trend, and it is not limited to spring cleaning! Living in a clutter-free home has benefits that will lead you to an improved daily lifestyle.


Clutter accumulates dust, dirt, and other particles that are detrimental to the humans and pets living in your home. The allergens accumulated in untouched clutter can worsen allergies, asthma, and overall health. Even if you clean regularly, the more junk items in your home, the more there is to clean! Improve your homes cleanliness and cut down on your cleaning time by decluttering.

Finding Lost Items

You never know what useful items might be lying in a pile of your own junk! Decluttering can lead to finding old belongings you forgot you had, or items you have been searching your house for. You will be shocked at what has been sitting right in front of you unnoticed, and you will likely to be able to chop some items off your shopping list!

Helping Others

Part of decluttering is realizing how many things you no longer use or need. Many of the items you are ready to let go of will still have life left in them! Donate these items to ensure they don’t go to waste. You can donate clothing, appliances, and even furniture that you no longer have use for, and your junk removal service can help you with this.

Mood Boosting

There are several emotional benefits to decluttering your home. Becoming clutter-free is psychologically associated with anxiety relief, increased concentration, and better sleep. When your home is cluttered, you are often in a mentally scattered state without realizing it. Once you create order in your home, free up space, & know where everything is, you will find yourself thinking clearly with less stress. On an emotional level, cleaning out gives you a chance to let go of items that might remind you of items that remind you of negative parts of your past. Because it keeps you physically and mentally busy and has a clear end goal, cleaning out will also leave satisfied & with a sense of accomplishment.

Making Space

Eliminating clutter frees up space in your home. Instead of leaving it cluttered with junk, you could be celebrating a family dinner on your dining room table! Along with creating more space for daily living, this frees up space for new belongings once you have eliminated the old. For example, if you go through your closet and eliminate the items you never wear, you will find more space for new clothing that fits your current style! Decluttering will also free up mental space – You will find yourself stressing less about the mess in your home, and with time to focus on more important things.

How to Reduce Environmental Impact with Junk Removal Services

Just because you have junk does not mean it should all go to waste. One of the easiest ways to combat the issue of climate change is to cut down on pollution. This can mean eliminating the number of recyclable materials that are sent to landfills. Whether it be recycling materials, products, or objects, it is your responsibility to make sure you or your junk removal service is practicing proper procedure. This includes recycling daily materials, as well as special services for removing furniture and electronics.

Your daily rubbish can contain many materials that should not be sent to waste in a landfill. For example, plastic bottles, cardboard, and paper can all be recycled instead of trashed. Keeping all of these items separated from your regular trash is a sure way to make sure they are not disposed of improperly. If you frequently burn your waste, it is still vitally important to separate and recycle plastics. When plastic, rubber, and other similar materials are burned, toxic fumes harmful to the environment and those breathing in the air are released.

Improper disposal of appliances and electronics can lead to these items sitting in landfills for hundreds of years. Along with taking decades to breakdown, these materials can put harmful chemicals such as lead or mercury into the surrounding soil or water supply, essentially poisoning those living in the area. This pollution also impacts the ecosystem for generations to come, leading to an endangered local wildlife population. Instead of turning them into pollution, contact a professional junk removal service to see what electronic disposal solutions are offered.

Did you know there are also specialized disposal services for furniture? This is not just limited to that old living room couch you’re desperate to be rid of. Offices and other commercial businesses can arrange for special pick up of old chairs, desks, and more unwanted office furniture. Instead of being trashed, some companies like Elite Services will even take care of the donation potential in your used furniture and electronics. With all of these services right at your fingertips, there is no reason to practice improper junk disposal that is both wasteful and harmful to the environment.

Storage Ideas For Your Dorm Room

Almost nothing beats going back to school! For all those college students in and around the Boston area, your dorm room will be the home to lasting memories. The only problem is that for so many young kids is that dorm rooms aren’t always the biggest. With the limited space that you have and all sorts of junk being everywhere, we’ve put together some things you could do to improve storage.

Closet Space: Think vertically when maximizing space in your college closet. A rod doubler can almost instantly double the amount of hanging space that you have. Or, if you need more space for your folded clothes then try adding extra drawers.

Walls & Doors: Your walls and doors can actually be used for more then just a space to hang up posters. There are various grid and hook racks that can add storage for shoes, sweatshirts and much more.

Utilizing Your Desk: Almost every college dorm room has a desk but one that is limited with storage space. With all your school work, being organized is extremely important. Think about getting a notebook holder, or a file cart that can fit under your desk.

Laundry: For so many people, the reason that they have a dirty bedroom is because of unorganized and scattered dirty clothes. Make sure that you have a laundry basket which can fit all your dirty clothes and also one that is easily portable.

Junk Removal: If you have old, clunky furniture in your college dorm room that is taking up too much space, consider getting rid of it. Sometimes throwing stuff out is the best option to clean up and organize your room.

5 Items That are Extremely Easy to Sell at Garage Sales

garage saleWith the end of summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to do any last-minute purging! And since you’re getting rid of the items you no longer want, you mine as well hold a garage sale and get a little extra money for them instead of just throwing them away. Are you worried no one will buy your things? Here are 5 items that are very easy to sell at garage sales.

1. Tools

When buying tools brand new, they can be extremely expensive! Tools that are in good condition or part of a set at a yard sale, they tend to sell very quickly since most people avoid buying them at full price. This holds true for power tools as well, but make sure to have an extension cord and an outlet close by so they can be tested by your customers.

2. Small Appliances

Remember the last time you watch an infomercial or were at the store and found out about an awesome new small appliance that you just knew would make your life so much easier? After several years and only using the life-changing small appliances a small handful of times, the time has come that it needs a new home.

These small appliances will make waves at your next garage sale! Just like how they capture your attention the first time you learned about it, it’ll capture your customers, making it an easy sale.

3. Toys & Sports Equipment

It’s no secret that children LOVE toys and will play with just about anything! Whether parents are looking for new toys to add to their collection (without breaking the bank, of course!), want to purchase more “vintage” toys, or their child is throwing a fit at a garage sale and they just want to make them happy, toys sell very well.

In addition to toys, sports equipment (especially youth sizes) tends to be a hot seller at garage sales since brand new equipment has high retail costs. Have your kids grown out of their hockey equipment? Have a yard sale with all of the items they no longer fit it!

4. Books

Books sell at amazing prices at yard sales, making them a hot spot to pick up a new read for any age. Have a full series or a book that’s a collectible? Book lovers are happy to pay the extra cost!

5. Clothing

Many people don’t think about selling clothing at a garage sale – they typically bring it to a consignment shop or donate it. If you no longer fit in or wear certain pieces and they’re still in great condition, selling them at your garage sale will avoid any fees being kept by the consignment shop! Shoes, accessories, and jewelry also tend to do very well at garage sales.

For all of the items you can’t sell at your next garage sale, give Elite Services Junk Removal and Demolition a call today at (978) 317-5388 to schedule your junk removal appointment!

How to Fall Back in Love with Your Home

living roomAfter living in your home for a long time, you become so comfortable that you start to fall out of love with it. We get it- little things start to drive you nuts and all you want to do is pack up your things and move to a new place and start over. Keep in mind that this will most likely happen over and over again, no matter where you’re living. Instead of packing up and moving, try making these changes to help you fall in love with your home all over again.

1. Bring in Warm & Cozy Tones

Warm and cozy tones will make your house feel more like a home. If you updated your paint in over 10 years, now is the perfect time to do so! Choose from cozy greys or tans and compliment your new wall color with some new pillows on your couch! Both of these updates won’t drain your bank account and will drastically improve the look and feel of the room.

2. Embrace Natural Light

Have a bunch of windows throughout your home but always have the curtains closed or the shades down? Open them up! Bright indoor lighting is harsh whereas natural light brings in a new form of happiness. If you need to utilize lamps in your home, opt for bulbs that are 2,700 Kelvin or less to avoid the harsh bright light.

3. Rearrange your Furniture

New furniture instantly changes a space but it’s not always in the cards. Instead, opt for rearranging the furniture in the specific room and even switch out some of the pieces from other rooms in your house to freshen it up a bit more. This will give the room a new look and feel, as well as keep visitors on their toes!

4. Declutter Your Home

Clutter in the home can be a drag. Go through each room in your house, organize all of your belongings, and get rid of everything you no longer need or use. Elite Junk Removal will come and pick up any of the things you no longer want and will ensure they are disposed of through the proper channels.

Why You Should Hire a Junk Removal Company

Clearing the junk out of your basement or attic after it’s sat there for years or cleaning up debris after a demolition is a tedious task, but is necessary for making your home the clean place you are itching for it to be. While doing the junk and debris clean up yourself is possible, hiring a junk removal company will save you a lot of time, sore muscles, and frustration.

Thinking about hiring a junk removal company? Here are some benefits:


After junk and debris have been sitting around in your home or business for years, it will take a lot of time and effort to clean it up and dispose of it correctly. The typical timeline for a project like this is a day or two to complete. By hiring a junk removal company to clean up and dispose of these items for you, not only will they be disposed of correctly, but they will complete the project in a shorter period of time since it’s what they are trained to do. This will leave you with more time to focus on the things that are more important.

Health & Safety

Depending on the nature of the items that you are demoing and removing from your home, they can be hazardous, which means they will need to be disposed of in a specific way. Without the proper training and experience dealing with these materials, you put yourself and those around you in danger, should something happen. Our team at Elite Services Junk Removal & Demolition is trained to handle these materials and will dispose of them through the proper channels.

Reliability & Efficiency

Piling all of your junk into the back of your car and dropping it off at the local landfill and recycling center doesn’t constitute as disposing of it properly. When you utilize a junk removal company to get rid of your junk, not only will they ensure that all of your items are disposed of through the proper channels, but they will also make sure that the right items are recycled and repurposed. Going this route will also eliminate the extra costs of dumping larger items, including furniture, at the local recycling center.

Peace of Mind

Our team at Elite Services Junk Removal & Demolition provides reliable and efficient junk removal and demolition services so that you can cross one last thing off of your list of to-dos. Our team will stay out of your way and allow you to focus on the other important aspects of your daily life.
