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. With giant, ugly bins in your driveway, it is up to you to get everything out of your home and make sure that your neighbors aren’t taking advantage of using this trash bin.

Professional junk removal services are available by Cleanout Express. 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!

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!

 

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.

A Hoarder’s Nightmare, A Family’s Relief

A hoarder suffers extreme difficulty in throwing away possessions that they regard as potentially important. Hoarders battle anxiety and distress from the difficult task of cleaning and discarding what others would consider junk, unnecessary, and useless. This in effect troubles family members and friends who love them but also cannot bare the piling amounts of garbage engulfing their home. It is an intense attachment to things, but that isn’t all. Hoarding is detrimental to health and well being, and often leads to household problems. If you or someone you love is hoarding, get them the right kind of help that will sort through their belongings carefully and work with them to discard every useless item. Following are some problems associated with hoarding that arise as the situation worsens, along with some helpful solutions.

Emergency Situations: Hoarders have huge amounts of waste taking up space in any or all rooms of their home. Often rooms can be filled so much it is hard to walk through, therefore in times of emergency it may be difficult to exit. Someone may trip or have difficulty navigating out of the room in efficient timing. A helpful tip would be to create a safe path throughout the home where no items lay to make sure walking through is easy.

Danger: Heavy items plus multitudes of other possessions accumulate to a heavy weight. As houses age and these items take up a majority of space, it creates a dangerous environment. If flooring gives or items fall, someone can get severely injured. The beginning of hoarding clean-ups should involve removing items that are stacked and eventually bringing heaviest items to the main floor.

Sharp Objects: The buildup of items can hide other items, which can also pose as danger. Broken glass, knives, pointed objects, and other sharp items may be obscured from view and can hurt a household member or guest. This can occur from the item falling or being accidentally grabbed. The dangers of sharp objects can be helped by the removal of junk, but often an expert cleaner is needed in this and other serious situations.

Hidden Damage: A hoarder may not realize that their home is falling apart from under them or around them. Heaping stacks of items may hide water damage from a bursted pipe, for example. The floor may be giving out or mold may be growing. The problem with mold is it may spread around the house such as in the bathroom or washing machines and drier. It also makes breathing difficult and can cause other health problems.

Rodents: This may be the worst problem in my opinion. It isn’t a surprise that mice, rats, bugs, and the like will find home in the crowded space of a hoarder’s home. Following hidden damages, mice and rats may find their way into the home and grow in numbers. Rodents and other unwanted creatures may carry diseases with them. When rodents are found in the home it is necessary to get experts to clean up.

Cleanout Express understands the emotional difficulties that hoarders experience with their possessions. That is why our trained professionals come willing to sit with the homeowner and discuss what the process will look like. They bag and sort items for keeping, discarding, recycling, and donating. Each staff member is prepared to start with one room or even one item at a time to help ease the situation for the homeowner.

When you or your loved one are ready to clean out hoarded items and start a new fresh, clean, and healthy life, call Cleanout Express. Our experts clean, sort, and remove all items efficiently. Cleanout Express is dedicated to customer satisfaction and are always there for you!
