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 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.

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.

With all the fun in the sun, it’s inevitable that your children’s bathrooms, bedrooms, and playrooms become a disorganized mess. Beach toys (covered in sand, of course), summer clothes, and junk are piled all around. Before returning to school, give your house an end-of-summer cleaning. With more accessible room space, you can prepare for back to school clothes and school supply shopping. 
Here are some tips offered for an easy and efficient summer cleanups:
Closets and Drawers: This part is easy. Go through their summer and fall clothes, get rid of anything they haven’t worn in a while, dislike, or don’t fit into anymore. To keep space in these drawers, store away summer clothes and put fall and winter attire in. Keeping clothes separated by seasons maintains space and organization. 
Room Cleaning: Have your kids help you clean up crafts and hobby materials and store them away for later use. Wipe down walls, windows, shelves, cushions, floors, and so on. 
Toys, Games, and Summer gear: As they summer comes to an end, consider what you will keep and what you will dispose of. Put all toys, games, etc into storage bins for next year. Create a space in your garage or shed for your children’s toy cars and bikes as these may be used throughout the fall.
Allow the Cleanout Express cleanup crew tackle the garbage and junk. We can donate any and all clothes or toys and will throw out any garbage or junk: big, small, one or many. We take care of any lifting and clean up any messes. Getting yourself a head start to this winter will ensure an organized fall and an easier Spring cleaning.

Moving into a smaller space can often be stressful but there are ways to make the most of this transition. By using the space effectively and exploring new furniture options, you can optimize your new living arrangements.

Break out the Tape Measure

Measure the different dimensions of the room. Start with the four walls and measure the distances to the door, windows, closets, shelves, and any other defining objects. Draft out a layout of the room and create boxes to symbolize potential furniture options and paths. You may have to downsize your bed or refrigerator to make room for other items but planning it out saves hours of rearranging and heartbreak when your beloved coffee table won’t fit through the door.

 

Explore Dual Functionality

Furniture stores often have furniture that can serve more than one purpose optimizing space and reducing clutter. Beds with storage drawers built into the frame are excellent for storing items seasonal items or items that aren’t used every day. Out of sight and limited storage reduces the possibility of holding onto items that you no longer use and clutter. You can also loft your bed to create additional space underneath to hold desks, storage chests, sofas, etc. Ottomans are great for storing extra blankets or pillows and add an extra seat when you host your house warming party.

 

Command your Space

Command hooks make it extremely easy to hang up shelves, artwork, and clothing without damaging the walls to ensure that you retain your security deposit. Hang some shelves to hold your items and get them off of the floor. Be sure to hang them high enough that they are out of the way but make sure that you can still reach them by climbing on a chair.

Talk to your Landlord

Ask them to install a sliding or a bi-fold door instead, or store the door if you want to take it off completely and put up a curtain instead. Maximize your space by moving around items. You’d be surprised as to how much space can be created by switching the hinges on a door to swing outward instead of inward.

Don’t Move Your Clutter

Use the move as motivation to clean out some of your old items such as clothing, stuffed animals, papers and anything else you haven’t used in awhile. Anything that you can’t see yourself using in the near future and anything that does not have sentimental value can be donated, recycled or plain thrown out.

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!

Go Green & Be Clean!

When someone says they’ve “gone green” we automatically think they’ve gone vegan and are living outdoors. While that holds benefits, going green also means making more environmentally friendly decisions that help make our Earth stronger and also our lives cleaners. The condition of Earth can be saved for another topic, but eco-friendly decision making also benefits you and your loved ones. Okay, so you can grow your own vegetables for starters. If you don’t have a green thumb, remember that practice makes perfect. Start with one plant and treat it like you would a child- love it, feed it, protect it. If that’s not possible for you, visit a local farmers market. Doing this saves you plenty of money and also supports a family business. Supporting a family business helps them send their children to college, supporting big businesses just gives the CEO another buck toward their next vacation. Recycle plastics and aluminums by having separate cans from regular trash. If necessary, label the cans with what is recyclable. Coffee grounds, fruit and vegetable peels and waste, teabags, cardboard cartons, and paper scraps are common household items that can be used as compost. Compost is ground up materials used as plant fertilizer, which can help increase your chances of obtaining a green thumb.

LED and Solar lights are great alternatives, too. Solar lights look beautiful and light up on their own. LED lights are actually brighter and offer prettier lighting, too (hello perfect selfies!). Making these switches help keep space and cleanliness in your home. Making these choices benefit the environment and your health even within the first day. When shopping for new shoes or appliances, keep the cardboard boxes in your attic or garage incase you plan to move, or just to store items. Cardboard boxes are great for holding photos, for example, and even clothes you plan to donate. It’s a go-green alternative. Plastic never disintegrates and just builds up, which is why our planet isn’t doing so great. Donate and recycle any items (clothes, furniture, appliances) that can be used by someone else, but aren’t selling on your convenient App. Don’t throw it away where it’ll just accumulate space in a trash field, nor should you leave it outside your property for anyone to take. Bring it to a center that you know accepts donations, or ask your neighbors and friends if they’d like it. Buy indoor and outdoor plants for purified air, too! Most indoor plants are easy to care for, especially succulents and cacti.

Making these simple lifestyle changes dramatically improves your living condition (not to mention the Earth!). It is cost efficient and friendly for any neighborhood and home. For more helpful tips on keeping your house clean and organized, stay tuned in with Cleanout Express!

 

Downsizing Made Easy

Nowadays, people have more interest in smaller homes over large. Smaller homes often mean having the ability to live a more adventurous lifestyle, with more freedom and more money. Smaller homes also mean less space to utilize.

Often we downsize houses or just buy a lot of new things and fill up our already small spaces. When downsizing or needing to make space in a smaller home, following specific tips helps make this process quick, efficient, and easy. First, keep essentials only. This means getting rid of useless items such as the bean bag chair you haven’t sat on in years, the wardrobe closet filled with ragged sweatshirts and t-shirts, the computer desk you haven’t used since you bought your laptop, and that old television. If you haven’t used something in a year, you probably won’t ever use it again. Sell your items on any App that makes selling easy or donate them. If items are quite damaged, just throw it out. Ask yourself if you’ll really use these items, or if you’d buy it today if you didn’t have it already. That may help you decide what is and isn’t essential. Next, get rid of papers. Use electronic sources for managing bills and expenses, or keep one notebook for it. Throw away expired coupons, magazines, college essays, menus, brochures, and all of those paper materials you thought you’d want for one day. In reality, those papers are just taking up space. Most menus and brochures can be viewed online, and so can your college essays. Important documents can either be digitally replaced or stored in a filing cabinet. If you choose the latter, be sure to label tabs so that everything is properly organized for easy access. Finally, if you see something you’d like to buy sleep on it. It’s the most cost effective way of not spending money on something that is really just eye candy. You may think you need that new jacket, purse, or wallet. If you sleep on it, you may not want to go back the next day. You’ll realize your jacket is still in great condition and so is your wallet. Make lists whenever you do shop for things you need rather than want. These simple but effective tips help create space in your home and abundance in your wallet! It helps organize and feel more comfortable in your home. For labor-saving garbage and junk disposal, let the experts at Cleanout Express help!
