1. It’s an Eyesore!
Junk in any location is not fun to look at. In our homes or in our yards, even a small pile of junk can bring down the feeling of the whole setting. Whether it is piles of branches, leaves, broken toys or discarded furniture in the yard, or worn-out furnishings and unused possessions in the home, there is no easier way to quickly improve the look and feel of an area than to simply get rid of the junk!
A few of the dangers posed by junk are tripping hazards, fire hazards, danger of cuts, scrapes, splinters, and more! The National Safety Council says the first thing to do to prevent trips and falls is to remove clutter. There is no quicker way to reduce many of these safety concerns than to simply have the junk and clutter removed!
Stockpiling junk in the closets, garages, or yards of our residences creates an environment friendly to bugs, spiders, scorpions, and other vermin. In the right environments, even bacteria and germs can grow and thrive. For sanitary purposes and the safety of your family, it’s time to clean up!
Bonus point: FREEDOM!
Junk takes up valuable space in our homes and yards. Imagine the things you could be doing with that space! Instead of a pile of junk in the backyard, you could plant a lawn, a garden, or create your dreamed-of retreat! Instead of a garage full of unused items, boxes of never-used things, broken sports equipment, and anything else that has piled up over time, you could park your car or create an extra living space or area to start the hobbies you've always wanted to have! Freedom can be found when we find the strength to let go of those things which have been holding us and our homes hostage.
You may have heard of the old Chinese proverb, that “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Today let's remember that the journey of taking back your home begins with a single decision.
Decide to de-clutter and de-junk today!
Decide to take back your home from all the junk holding it hostage. Declare war on the junk that has slowly been invading your home over the years, the home where you have lived, laughed and loved.
The problem is that everyone loves stuff! We love buying stuff, we love using stuff, and we love having stuff. Soon though, our stuff starts to take over our lives! It has crept in over time like an invading army disguised as friends. Before you know it, you are surrounded by the enemy, and you aren't even sure how it happened.
Clutter and junk take our time, focus, and energy from other more fulfilling parts of our lives. Instead of spending time with the family at the park, we are cleaning the yard. Instead of cultivating a new talent, we are trying to organize the garage. Instead of traveling to new places, we are stuck spring-cleaning every season!
There is no better time than right now to get rid of all the junk holding your home hostage. Take the first step, make the decisions, and free your home and yourself from clutter and junk today!
Brandon was inspired to start a junk removal business in the summer of 2015 when he helped a family member clean out her garage that consisted of some 20 years worth of junk. The freedom that was restored to that home changed the way the home felt, how it was used, and relieved the homeowner of a burden that had been lingering for several years. He is excited to help homeowners in the valley regain the freedom currently being held hostage by junk!
