How Your Business Can Benefit From Professional Junk Removal

How Businesses Can Benefit From Professional Junk Removal

When you have a business, it seems like junk collects at an alarmingly fast rate. Outdated office furniture, old electronics, and lots of other items pile up in storage closets and corners until someone decides it’s time to get rid of them. 

Don’t wait until your staff are having trouble getting around to get rid of that junk. Professional junk removal can take all of that stuff and get it out of your business, so you don’t have to deal with it. Some of the best reasons to get professional junk removal for your business are:

Save Time

When you need to get rid of a lot of junk it takes you or your staff a lot of time to sort through all of the items that need to go. Some things can be recycled, but others can’t, and there are rules about what can be disposed of where. Professional junk removal means that you don’t have to waste your time or your staff’s time going over every piece of junk. The technicians who do professional junk removal know what can go where, and they can get rid of everything all at once for you. 

Reduce Stress

You should be focused on your business, and your staff should be focused on their jobs. It’s stressful for you and for them to have to deal with piles of junk strewn around the office or taking up valuable storage space. Without outside junk removal, all of that stuff can be gone in a matter of hours, and none of you have to think about it again. 

Save Money

Hiring professionals to remove all that old junk from your business will actually save you money. Think about the labor cost that you will be paying if you have your employees take time away from their duties to sort through those piles and the fees you would need to pay to rent a truck to take it all away, to dump it, and so on. Your business resources are much better spent hiring a professional junk removal company to get rid of the junk you don’t need anymore. 

Get Rid of Junk Fast

If you have a small business space and you have a lot of bulky items to get rid of, like old office furniture, you want it out of there fast. A professional junk removal company can come in with a team of experienced junk removal technicians and get all that junk of your space in a short time, sometimes less than an hour. 

Saves the Environment

A professional junk removal team will always make sure that your items are separated properly and that anything that can be recycled is recycled. You can trust that a junk removal company will uphold the green guidelines that your business has in place to help the environment whenever possible.

Tips on How to Clean Out Your Garage

If you own a house, you have to clean it regularly, and your garage is no exception. It’s as important a place in your home like your bedroom or kitchen. Sometimes, people can act as though it does not exist or is not a place to which they should pay attention.

If you have ignored the cleaning of your garage long enough, you might not know where to start. That’s where we come in. Here, we are sharing some tips on how to clean out your garage.

Start with a Survey

Take some time to have a close look around your garage to identify what you should do with the items inside and the garage itself. Some of the stuff you might just have to throw away. Some if it is useful and usable, but it’s lying there in the form of a clutter (sounds like work).

Remove and Sort All Items

Pull out everything from the garage into the driveway or your yard, else stack it out in the open. This will give you a clear idea as to how to replace things in a better way to get a clean garage with more storage space.

Now, you have to sort out what will go back in and what will stay. Broken or rusty items should go out immediately.

Re-arrange Storage Area

Your garage may have large, odd-sized items like a chainsaw, grass trimmer, sports equipment, or smaller items like nails, screws, bit, etc. All of this stuff is reducing the storage space.

Think of smart storage options. Look for wire or plank-shelves where you can place your large and oddly shaped equipment and tools. For smaller items like screws, nails, etc. you can have small boxes or jars and place them on the shelves or inside the boxes.

Seal Cracks and Repair

Now, you have to survey the areas that might need painting, repairing, and sealing. Seal the cracks with sealants, spray anti-rust foam on steel fixtures, etc.

Check out the wiring around the garage and replace the wires if they look brittle or moist or have rat teeth marks. You may call a professional hand for electric circuits or wiring.

Clean and Paint

In an empty garage, you may look at layers of dust, mouse droppings, oil spill marks, bugs, chemicals, or grease marks. Thoroughly clean all the corners and skirting, wash the walls and floor, and use chemicals to wipe and clear oil and grease marks.

If you can put some epoxy floor coating, count it as an investment, as it will help you keep your garage clean for a long.

Labeling the Items

Your garage is now beautiful, clean, and ready. You can put a tag on the racks and boxes for tools, sports goods, car repair items, yard supplies, etc.

Your Complete Home Clean Out Guide

Have you ever wondered at what point in time you accumulated so much stuff, so much so that your home is a cluttered mess? Clutter has a way of sneaking up on you, but that’s a problem that you can solve. You can clean out your home, make it sparkling again, and restore some organization so you can easily find your belongings that matter. A complete home cleaning is often an arduous task, but with a little bit of planning and the ideal guide to help you declutter, you can get it done. Here’s a complete home cleanout guide that you could find helpful in decluttering your home.

Establish Clear Cleanout Goals Initially

Before you jump head-on into cleaning, come up with a clear idea of what you’d like to accomplish and plan it out. The reason for establishing goals, in the beginning, is to limit the chance of frustrations and prevent unwanted problems that could arise. You also want to keep a check on the things you’d like to cover, whether it’s polishing the basement floors or throwing out old Christmas decorations in the attic. Identify each room’s  ‘clutter hotspots’ that is a must for you to tackle. Set a cleanup date for each room that is convenient for you. Each phase of the cleanout should have a specific time allotted. This will help you keep things on track.

Organize Your Stuff

At the end of the day, you do not want to still be hanging onto stuff that you do not need. As you move from room to room and space to space in your home, sort all the items in a manner that creates some level of organization. This will allow you to know what to discard and what you want to keep around. The “Three-Box Method” is a popular sorting choice, but you can establish your method of organization. It involves having three storage boxes or bins for recycling, donating, packing things up for a garage sale. Be sure to label the boxes or bins so you can easily locate your items when you need to retrieve them.

Discard the Clutter Using Different Methods

How you dispose of your clutter is up to you, but there are a couple of options that you could find helpful in the process. You can get rid of unwanted items in these ways:

  •     Recycle: It’s best to get rid of recyclable items by recycling them. Items that can be placed in the recycling bin include plastic, paper, and recyclable glass and electronics. It may be that you have a curbside pickup or you’ll have to take your recyclables to your local recycling drop-off location.


  •     Donate: If you have some items that are still in good condition and would prefer not to simply throw them away, but have someone else enjoy them, donating them is a good option. Whether its clothes or furniture, Good Will or some other charity organization can be good homes for your unwanted items. Check with your local charities’ donation guidelines ahead of any drop-offs. It’s also possible to post freebies on certain websites, encouraging takers to come and take away items that you want to part with.


  •     Make Some Money With a Garage Sale: You are not looking to be a millionaire here. Instead, you want your clutter gone while you make some pocket money in the process. Many people love a good garage sale. Set a date for your garage sale or check to see if your neighborhood or homeowner’s association has a set garage sale date.


  •     Dumpster Haul Rental: If you’d like some help with hauling your clutter, renting a dumpster, especially to get rid of large household items is a good option. It’s a stress-free option where you can relax and let others do the big haul. Your job will be to fill up the dumpster with all your clutter when it is delivered to your home and the junk removal company would haul it away. No hassle.

Sanitize the Home

One of the biggest parts of the home cleanout process is sanitizing surfaces after the clutter has been cleared out. You don’t necessarily need to bleach the home from corner to corner. Sanitize areas such as bathrooms, tables (kitchen, coffee, play-area, and night tables), counters, and other frequently touched areas. Now more than ever, you should have a keen focus on sanitizing your home, especially during a home cleanout to limit the spread of germs.

You might be due for a home cleanout, but you don’t have to worry about where to start. Plan your cleanout, get organized, and work with a junk removal company for your next home cleanout. You’ll make the process run smoothly with little or no hiccups. Contact Elite Services Junk Removal and Demolition today at (978) 317-5388.

The 4 Top Reasons to Recycle

recyclingDid you know that only about 64% of paper and cardboard ends up getting recycled? Unfortunately, the U.S. is often behind when it comes to both understanding what can be recycled, and then actually taking the steps to recycle these items.

Recycling is important, for more reasons than you might think. Here’s why.

Reduces Waste

Did you know that the average American throws out about eight pounds of trash every day? Recycling common household items can help us re-use our resources rather than continue to overload existing landfills. And if Americans fully recycled all the paper they used each year, 782 million more trees would be saved.

Better for the Environment

The Ocean Conservancy estimates that there’s about 150 million tons of plastic in our oceans right now, with another 8 tons on the way each and every year. It can take decades for plastic to fully break down, and in the meantime, it frequently serves as a choking or environmental hazard. Scientists have noted that plastic often gets broken down into particles that are ingested by fish—that often end up on our plate. Recycling plastic can help cut down on oceanic pollution.

Saves Energy

Did you know that manufacturing with recycled aluminum requires 95% less energy? Consider the process of retrieving aluminum. First, it has to be mined from the earth—an expensive procedure. Then it has to be treated with chemical processes, etc., to separate the ore from everything else. Only then does it reach the point of being ready for manufacturing. A recycled item, though, is already ready for manufacturing. A single ton of recycled aluminum saves the same amount of energy that the average American home would use in 10 years.

Slow Down Climate Change

As the materials in landfills begin to break down, they release gases into the air. These gases then enter the atmosphere and contribute to climate change. Properly recycling solid waste can help prevent the acceleration of the greenhouse effect that is warming up our planet at an unsustainable rate. As an example: a single office recycling all its paper for a year reduces its carbon footprint by the equivalent of 370 cars.

How to Dispose of Your Refrigerator

refrigerator repairJust like everything else in your home, your refrigerator has a lifespan. As an appliance that is frequently used and always running, they get old and run down over the years. Purchasing a new fridge and bringing it home is the easy (and most expensive) part, but getting rid of the old one can be a challenge. Here are a few ways to get rid of your refrigerator easily.

1. Sell Your Refrigerator

If your fridge is still in working condition but you decided to upgrade to a new model, sell the old one! This way, you’ll be able to get a little extra money that can be put toward your new appliance or carting it off, the new buyer can be responsible for that. If you’re having a hard time finding someone to purchase your fridge, put an ad out in the local classifieds and post it to Craigslist and Facebook.

2. Donate Your Refrigerator

If your fridge is still usable but don’t want to deal with selling it, try donating it to a local charity. If they’re not in the market for a fridge or know anyone that would be, seek out various non-profits, shelters, and missions in the area. Not sure where to get started? Put some feelers out with your neighbors, friends, and family to push you in the right direction.

3. Recycle Your Refrigerator

If your fridge isn’t working at all, recycle it! Elite Services Junk Removal & Demolition will not only come to your house and remove it from the premises but will also ensure that it is recycled through the correct channels.

The Benefits of Recycling Your Appliances

appliancesAlthough there are laws in place to ensure proper disposal of electronic waste, appliances, and other electronic devices still pile up in landfills all across the United States each year. All appliances and electronic devices are recyclable as long as they’re disposed of through the proper channels. Next time you replace your dishwasher, washing machine and/or dryer, or even your refrigerator,  consider recycling the appliance you are replacing before carting it off to the local landfill.

What are the benefits of recycling appliances?

1. Protects the ozone layer

Cooling appliances, such as air conditioners, rely on the cooling agent Freon to work properly. When these appliances are disposed of, the Freon isn’t properly disposed of and can potentially leak into the atmosphere and damage the ozone layer. When these appliances are recycled, Freon and other chemicals are disposed of properly removing the hazard of damaging the atmosphere.

2. Recovery of Scrap Metal

Most appliances and electronic devices are made of a substantial amount of steel, aluminum, and other metals that can be reused in the future. This eliminates the need to stress the environment to create new materials.

3. Saves Money

If you chose to dispose of old appliances at your local landfill, you will have to pay a disposal fee whereas if you were to recycle old appliances, you won’t have to pay a disposal fee and might even make a little money depending on the condition of the steel, aluminum, and metal of your appliance.

4. Prevent Common Environmental Problems

When appliances are disposed of in the correct way, the metals will decompose and penetrate the soil, leading to lead and iron contaminating groundwater.
