It’s that time of year again where the weather is getting chilly and we’re staying indoors. We’re susceptible to stressing out over cleaning the house and not being able to go outdoors, so you should take that energy and get creative. Don’t let the lack of sunshine stop you from enjoying life. Here are some ideas of how you can turn household junk into decorations for outside of your house! This is a fun and innovative way to decorate, especially for fall!

  1. 1. Lanterns. Have any wine bottles or mason jars that are seemingly useless? Rather than trashing them, invest in some solar bottle lantern kits and turn the jars into outdoor lamps! Uninterested in solar? Go to your local dollar store and buy some tea candles. They come in scented or unscented and very cheap! You can buy a whole lot without spending a lot of money. With Halloween right around the corner, you can buy some harvest scented candles or see if they have any spooky/creepy scented ones! The best part of this lantern trick is you can continuously switch candle flavors and sizes.
  2. Worn Out Furniture = Patio Furniture! If your yard is looking a little empty, and you were considering buying some patio furniture, look inside your house first. Old useless furniture (desks, chairs, tables, and even couches) can be made into lovely patio furniture. Don’t worry about dusk andcobwebs, because a spider will make home out of your home if your furniture is new or old! A better investment might be new indoor furniture instead. Or, maybe you just had some stuff locked up in storage. Modern-day gardeners love to put plants in desks, shoes, and even purses. This is a fun way to look edgy, artsy, and clean!

These are just two simple ways to get creative during the cold seasons. Stay warm and have fun while you “clean” and make some art. Not only is this fun, but it helps remove clutter and de-junk your home. For more tips on how to keep your house clean, or for junk removal and trash disposal in New York City areas, stayed tuned with Cleanout Express!

Need A Good Clean Up Crew?

If you’re moving to a new home, your office is moving to a new building, or if you have to declutter a loved ones home, choosing the right garbage removal service helps get the job done correctly.

If you need move in & move out cleaning services for junk disposal and waste removal, you need a spacious truck to hall away all trash. Perhaps if you’ve lost a loved one and are in charge of cleaning their estate, consider having someone there to carefully get this job done.

Find The Right Crew

Janitorial companies are meticulous, but they do not get rid of heavy waste or junk. Garbage bin rentals are spacious and appear convenient, however are costly and require permits.

Property management and office junk removal is made easy when you have an affordable waste removal service company that comes to your home or office to lift, load, and haul away all junk, debris, waste, and more.

Recycling

Many times, in our rush to keep our home clean, throwing away unused items seems easier than setting up a garage sale or listing the item for sale online. We get new television sets and refrigerators and kick our old ones to the curb. When we toss our old items to the curb, however, it just goes to the landfill.

Did you know you could recycle many household appliances, television sets, and even air conditioners? You could of course give working items away to family or a friend, but if they are looking to upgrade their TV’s and appliances, you may consider recycling. Listed are a few appliances that can be recycled as well as suggested ways to do-it-yourself.

Television Sets

There are over 300 million television sets in the United States, and too many of those are tucked away in basements, garages, storage, or some other area that leaves them unused and collecting dust. CRT televisions have a long lifespan which is why people store them away rather than selling or recycling it.

CRT, or cathode ray tube televisions, are composed of several pounds of lead, at least a layer of cadmium-based phosphorous, and other toxic heavy metals. Old generations of flat screen TV’s still contain other toxic materials.

Electronic waste, or E-waste is tough to dispose of and often illegal to just throw away for the landfills which makes a lot of sense.

Appliances

Appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, blenders, and the like fit into the same category as cans and bottles. Yes, these items can and should be recycled whether they work like a charm or are outdated and useless.

Pay attention to appliances that are broken, have frayed cords, or no longer unsafe. Anything that fits these or similar categories should be disposed of by recycling. New appliances are a great investment but you should ensure your old products are brought to the right “home.” Of course, this isn’t simple.

Some appliances are heavy to move. Most won’t sell at a garage sale or online (although it’s always worth a try). Thrift stores and non-profit businesses are another great place for donation. Recycling such products can create a better future for all of us.

Recycling Made Easy

If you’ve chosen to recycle your household items, Cleanout Express can help make this process safe, fast, and easy.

While we cannot help with hazardous materials, we can lift, load, and haul away all other materials for you. No need to hurt yourself lifting up a heavy washing machine or air conditioner, let Cleanout Express’s professional clean up crew do it for you.

When on a cleaning mission, our rubbish removal crew makes sure we get all waste and debris. We are also the junk removal company that will sort through and recycle whatever products can be recycled! This ensures the safety of families and the environment to create a greener future.

We are available 7 days a week and offer same day service and FREE onsite estimates in NYC, Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the Bronx. Don’t let waste and junk pile up in your home, get recycling today with Cleanout Express.

For further information about E-waste, hazardous material, recycling, or about Cleanout Express, call 718-658-0979.

Tips and Assistance For Home Remodeling Projects

Remodeling or improving your home? Creating new home features is exciting for homeowners, although you all must share one thing in common. You may be wondering how to keep the house tidy, avoid ruining anything, or how to live while under construction. Following these easy tips can make the process of remodeling simpler, safer, and perhaps faster.

Things get moved around, the house turns into a disaster. Dust and debris flies everywhere. To keep this as minimally messy as possible, try this:

 



Spring Cleaning: no matter what season you’re in, go through your closets and drawers and get rid of clothing that hasn’t been worn in more than a year. Donate to any accepting charity. If you are able to declutter storage space, such as an armoire or cabinets, use this space for temporary storage.

 

 

Labels: Gather a bunch of cardboard boxes and put away appliances, utensils, sheets, towels, or anything that can be forgotten about during the construction process. Consider using paper and plastic utensils, cups, and plates for a little to avoid the daunting task of using the dishwasher or washing dishes. During inside home construction, dishwashing can become tough or impossible if the construction is nearby. Storing away kitchen appliances prevents glass from breaking and debris from getting onto plates or anything of value. It’s just that much easier to buy disposable for the time being. LABEL all boxes with a permanent marker just so you are aware of which boxes contain what (and what is and isn’t fragile).
 

Storage: Consider the duration of the project. Would it be necessary to store away certain valuables? It wouldn’t hurt to be sure that your belongings were in a safe storage unit, or else consider moving them to an entirely separate part of the house to avoid damage by debris, construction, etc.
 

Cleaning: You may want to put down some old sheets, blankets, and towels that you are willing to dispose of after. This helps protect your floor (unless you’re redoing them, then it won’t matter) and makes cleanup a bit easier. For bigger messes or any clutter you’d rather not deal with on your own, call the experts

 

Cleanout Express offers construction debris removal for NY homeowners and business owners looking to renovate, redo, remodel, or just clean up their home. Our professionals know how important it is to maintain a clean working environment for workers and family members. Scattered debris and junk can lead to safety hazards, angry neighbors, and more problems. Best to be avoided by hiring our fully equipped, entirely insured company to lift, load, and get rid of any debris and junk.

We help make the remodeling process easy by letting you handle the business of construction while we complete the debris removal and junk cleanup. Hire us before your project begins and after it’s completed. Take the stress of cleaning off your shoulders by hiring our professionals at Cleanout Express and by following the provided tips.

No headaches. No stress. We provide free on-site estimates and dispose of trash with the environment always in mind.For more information on our Construction Cleanup Removal Service for Queens, Brooklyn, & Bronx NY, Call (718) 658-0979 Today!

 

Cleaning Services For Foreclosed Homes

For the mortgage lender whom repossesses homes from mortgagors who fail to meet required payments, Cleanout Express is here to help with the residual mess. When the borrower is in default, doesn’t pay their mortgage, a lender gets approval through the judicial court to initiate foreclosure. Deeds of trust can provide a reason for non-judicial foreclosures.

Either way, a lender is most often left with a messy house. Hiring Cleanout Express makes the process easier by letting you manage the foreclosure while we clean out the entire home. Whether it is debris and rubbish, or broken furniture, household appliances, and trash,we can handle it.

Our business is fully insured and equipped, all set to help clean foreclosed homes and get them ready for its next owner. Cleanout Express has trucks in different sizes for all circumstances, load sizes, and more. We offer all-inclusive service that doesn’t require any help from the mortgage lender. This makes it easier for YOU because while you handle the tougher aspects of foreclosures, we make the house clean and spotless.

Whether you are a real estate agent, bank, or asset management company we can handle all of your cleanup and clean out needs. We offer flexible schedules, free onsite estimates, same day services and more helpful favors.

If you have a foreclosed home in Queens, Brooklyn, & Bronx NY, contact Cleanout Express for fast and efficient junk removal and even assistance with organization.Call (718) 658-0979 and ask about our rubbish, trash and garbage removal services in New York!

You may find yourself asking “how did my house get this messy?” many times throughout the year. Unfortunately, as much as you’d not like to hear this, YOU are how your house got this messy. Perhaps you updated your wardrobe, bought a new television set, a new vacuum, or anything for the matter. Now your home has large amounts of stuff and you’re cleaning out your home for the second time this summer. You have to decide on what to keep, what to get rid of, and then just decide to stuff everything in your closet or garage. In order to avoid these dreadful cleaning tasks, perhaps you need to stop bringing in the junk. First, get that second summer cleaning started. Sell your old cell phones, donate your old hair dryers, blenders, and other appliances, and throw away any garbage. You can pretty much donate anything that is still useful or you can sell it if possible. Most donations can be written off on your tax form too, or at least up to 50%. If you must buy something new, donate or throw away something old. Doing this prevents the accumulation of junk or piles of unworn and unused items. Getting rid of low quality clothes, shoes, furniture, and other household items is a way to create more space in your home. Keep good quality items that you are certain to us, and only invest in high quality products. This not only reduces the amounts of build up junk, but you’ll soon realize that those cheaper tank tops go out of style every year anyways. Stopping yourself from making those purchases helps save money in the long run, even if it is only $10. Buy what you need and not in bulk.

 

Buying in bulk seems cost effective, but often most of it expires or goes unused. Some frozen vegetables and an extra bag of detergent may not be too bad, but opt for food shopping weekly instead. You’ll end up buying food that is better for you and saving more money that way. Make lists for what you need to buy and stick to it- whether the list is for clothes, appliances, or food, don’t stray far from the list. Buy only what you need. Return plastic bags to the store it came from, return hangers to the dry cleaners, and say no thanks to freebies that seem tempting but really aren’t necessary. Switch to paperless mail and direct deposit options to reduce the income of paper to your home. Reducing the income of junk mail is effective, too. These tips are simple but helpful options to keeping junk out of your home. Following these tips will prevent the need to do serious house cleanings multiple times throughout each season, and also keeps your house spacious, clean, and neat. Hopefully these tips have helped you today!

Garage Decluttering Tips

Our garages are the perfect place for storing things we don’t need in the moment, or in this lifetime. It is the perfect place for old furniture, bikes, shoes, tools, cleaning supplies, and all other types of appliances and household items. While I am sure you don’t want to throw away everything cluttering your garage, some helpful tips for organization can help determine what can be saved and what can be disposed of. As you go through your belongings, throw away what you haven’t used in over a year. Make a pile for recycling and a pile for garbage. Install metal racks and hooks in your garage to utilize the ceiling for items such as bicycles, skateboards, kayaks jet skis, ladders, and other items of the like. Heavy duty shelves and overhead storage units are also helpful for storing plastic bins,, cleaning supplies, paint buckets, wires and extension cords, and shoes. Pegboards hold tool supplies and other equipment. Be sure that anything installed in your garage is done professionally. Or, if you prefer to do it on your done be sure everything is effectively and safely secure. These organizing tips can help you separate items and store them protectively to prevent injuries to people and damaged items. Once you are organized, you can get to cleaning out all garbage. If that task sounds too tedious and boring, let the experts at Cleanout Express take it from there. This also prevents having to rent an expensive dumpster or waste money at a monthly storage space. Our staff will come remove all garbage and dispose or recycle all items. We can even sweep up any residual debris and dust. Hopefully these tips help you organize and clean your garage!

Moving Made Easier

Moving to a new location may mean new and exciting beginnings, but the adventure of getting there is far from fun. Packing up possessions for your new home can be time consuming and exhausting, so having all the necessary helpful tips is beneficial to a swift and easy move. Utilize these tips to your advantage prior to your move so that you can quickly settle into your new home and get back to living!

Clothing Cleanup: Anything that you haven’t worn in two or more years should be donated, along with mismatched socks, unworn shoes, hats, accessories and whatever else. Anything torn or slightly damaged should be thrown out (save some for rag-cleaning the house). Furniture and other household belongings can also follow this rule: donate whats unused and throw out what’s damaged. This ensures less junk coming into your home whether your upgrading or downgrading in size. If your unsure about an item, get rid of it!

Clean rugs, sheets, blankets, and curtains: Items that are coming with you to your new home should be brought to your local cleaners to be deep cleaned, dried, folded, and packed. This not only will allow a easy shipping from old home to the new, but also ensures that your new home can sparkle with freshly cleaned blankets, curtains, rugs, and whatever else!

Cotton and Plastic: I repeat: cotton and plastic! Cotton can be used to protect furniture, glassware, medicines, and other fragile items. Plastic can be helpful to prevent liquid items (like soaps, makeup, and hair products) from leaking. Wrapping your items with plastic or cotton promises a clean move and avoids spills, leaks, and damaged items.

Label EVERYTHING: Cords, glassware, electronics, clothing, cleaning products, and everything else should be blatantly labeled so that you know what goes where. This also helps prevent items from being damaged because you’ll know what to treat cautiously. Wires should be carefully wrapped up and can also be wrapped in plastic.

Space Bags: Space bags or other vacuum sealed bags really do help increase space which is essential for moving. You don’t want to rent multiple moving trucks or have trouble getting items in and out. Vacuum sealed bags provide a simple solution to that.

CLEAN! Saving damaged clothes is helpful for this, especially t-shirts and soft-material shorts. Newspaper is also an old trick. Before bringing all your items into the new home, use the ragged clothes to clean windows, floors, counter tops (paper towels might be better for these areas), and all other surfaces. Then just throw out the rags. Some people prefer to stash their used rags for another time, because ragged clothes can be more effective than paper towels and newspapers. It is also an environmentally friendly cleaning solution.

If you need more help cleaning your home, hiring our experts ensures effective clean up. Cleanout Express offers moving solutions for your convenience. Any junky items, old mattresses, or trash will be taken to our trucks by our staff members and disposed of (environmentally friendly, too!). We can also sweep up the empty home for the convenience of the next residents.

The toughest room to clean out may be the smallest room, but it’s the room that contains much garbage and junk that needs to go. You may be very busy with work, cleaning other rooms in the house, or taking care of your kids. However, when you realize how much garbage your bathroom has accumulated, it can be overwhelming. Here at Cleanout Express, we offer tips and hands on help to create more space and cleanliness in your bathrooms. Your daunting task is our expertise, so let us help!
First: Let go of what’s no longer used or needed. Any old or unused makeup, cosmetics, shampoos/conditioners, lotions, soaps, nail polish, nail care, bottles, empty or expired prescriptions can be thrown away or recycled. As we go through these items, just tell us what’s garbage. Keep this golden rule in mind: Lose it if you don’t love it or use it. 
Second: Make Space. Consider putting up shelves, an over-the-door rack, or buying plastic lidded bins to hold towels, candles, soaps, and other bathroom necessities. Not only will this clear up space but it can beautifully decorate your bathroom. Anything that isn’t needed or used daily can be moved to a hallway or bedroom closet. 
Third: Keep organization and cleanliness a priority by adding any trays or baskets if necessary, and only put hand soaps next to your sink. Drawers should be categorically organized: make up and face washes, hair supplies and brushes, feminine products, and personal grooming items. If you share a bathroom, each person should have their own drawer. Medicine cabinets are ideal for oral care, eye care, and medicines. 
Final Step: This step is easy once everything is already organized. Get into the habit of putting everything back where you got it from. Put a hamper in the bathroom for all dirty clothes. Commit to wiping down the counters and your personal drawers every week or every other week. Throw away any items that go unused for an entire year. Following these tips will keep your bathroom clean, beautiful, and organized.
Any necessary garbage disposal, furniture removal, or rubbish clean up needed can be handled by the experts at Cleanout Express. We cover all five boroughs of New York City and Nassau County. For a FREE estimate or same day service, call 718-658-0979 or schedule an appointment on our website! There is no job too big or too small, call now to see how we can help you!
