How a Junk Removal Service Can Make Thanksgiving Less Stressful

As we head into the holiday season and into the new year, we would all like to have our houses neat and clean before the end of the year. You can begin the cleaning spree by starting small and getting rid of old unused items. The holidays are a lot easier to manage when you have clean cabinets, an orderly closet, and a cleaned-out garage space. While you're rushing to get ready for the holidays, you'll have no trouble finding what you need thanks to the decluttering and organization of your stuff, such as Christmas decorations, beautifully placed and accessible dishes, and all of your favorite holiday attire. As the year draws to a close, keep in mind that most junk removal services help get rid of all your unwanted junk, and can donate it to a charity organization in need. Also, upon request, we will collect the donation slip on your behalf and mail it to you.

Continue reading to learn a few ways on how to declutter your living space and receive a house cleanout service before the holidays:

1. The Garage Cleanout

Our garages are one of the most important places that need to be cleared out before the holidays. The garage serves as a central storage location for most household items that are both used and no longer needed. There is a lot of junk that accumulates there, so this is one of the first spots that you should clean up. Set aside a day to begin sorting through the unwanted junk, and get rid of all unnecessary items or donate them to homeless shelters or to the many non-profit organizations near or around San Diego County.

2.Declutter the Bedroom(s)

Your bedroom is a crucial space that should be cleaned and organized before the holidays.This is your sanctuary, a place for you to relax and unwind, and oftentimes most people fill it up with their possessions. To combat this, begin the bedroom decluttering process by making a list and start categorizing it according to the object you want to clear out initially. Take on smaller tasks first, such as reorganizing your shelving and cabinets, before moving on to your closet!

3.Kitchen Junk

The kitchen is another place that is always in need of a thorough cleaning. It's an area that is used on a daily basis, and junk can accumulate with time. Begin by discarding all outdated and outmoded items such as broken appliances and furniture. Recycle items such as the plasticware, glasses, newspaper, old silverware, and other recyclable materials. Don't forget to thoroughly clean your appliances such as the refrigerator, oven, dishwasher and more.

4.Living Room

This is your home's most used living space where you often host guests. If not cleaned regularly, living rooms may become breeding grounds for germs and bacteria, so begin your decluttering process by thoroughly cleaning all of your rugs, sofas, pillows, and draperies. Recycling old magazines, envelopes, newspapers and other materials is a great way to get rid of them. Look for mold or fungus on your windows, and hire a junk removal service to clear out all the leftover unwanted junk.

5. Festival Décor

It’s not the holidays if you don’t bust out all the decorations. However, sometimes, we are unaware about the pile of outdated décor, such as broken or outdated ornaments and lights that accumulate over the years. The first step in decluttering is to get rid of all unnecessary and unwanted items, and it is best to donate these items that are no longer in use.

6. House Cleanout Service

While decluttering and cleaning up before the holidays is a wonderful idea, it can quickly become overwhelming. Recruit family and friends to help you get the home ready, plan a garage sale by posting an announcement on Nextdoor, Facebook or Craigslist, drop off donations, and sell items on Ebay, Facebook, OfferUp, Mercari just to name a few. Make a game plan that will help you clean in an efficient manner, and then execute the steps in small phases.

7. Throw Out Expired Pantry Goods

Take a good look at all your pantry goods and check each label, and toss out anything that is past its expiration date or consider donating to your local food pantry organization. Don’t forget to wipe down all the shelves and make a list of the necessities you have on hand to make the Christmas grocery shopping a breeze.

8. Hot Tub Removal

Above and in-ground pools and old hot tubs can be breeding grounds for dangerous germs, mosquitos, mice, etc, if not taken care of properly. Hiring a junk removal service, such as JDog Junk Removal & Hauling, is the simplest way to get rid of your hot tub. We will arrive on time, break it down, and haul it away.
