Managing both residential and commercial properties is a job with a sizable list of responsibilities attached; each varying in size and difficulty, and while some of the tasks you will take on might seem a little simple, or mundane at times, they are all detrimental in maintaining the properties in your care. One integral part of property management is upkeep, whether for or between tenants, it is your responsibility to make arrangements for maintenance. For example: if a tenant is having problems with the plumbing, you would be the one to call for the plumber; or if something more serious happens, such as a property taking damage in a storm, or other natural disaster, you would be the one responsible to not only arrange for repairs, but perhaps a clean-up of the property as well.
If you are currently looking after a property that is in need of services like junk or debris removal, you might have already thought about staging the clean-up yourself, but we would like to ask that you consider a few things before proceeding down that route. One of the most obvious questions is, how much restorative work does the property require? While there are some tasks you can handle on your own, such as patching a fence or replacing a broken door, once you lay out a checklist not only can things become overwhelming, but unrealistic for one person to complete in a timely manner. It might not sound like a lot to repair or tidy some things yourself, but those are only one part of a job and it is important that you consider all of the factors for a single project.
Hiring a junk removal service is incredibly beneficial in the upkeep of residential and commercial properties because they save you on time and energy, and dispose of all materials from a clean-up in a proper manner in order to protect the environment. There are many different categories of junk/debris you may need hauled away, such as: appliances, broken shingles, yard waste, chemical waste (paint, batteries, oil canisters, etc.), hazardous materials, and other resources that could be repurposed. A property manager may not have the time to sort through all of the refuse, while a junk removal service can properly categorize and dispose of/recycle materials, including donating to charitable organizations.
There are other circumstances that a property manager may encounter that require the assistance of a junk removal service, for example: if a tenant abandons a property and all of its contents, or if a tenant passes with no next of kin. Employing the services of a junk removal company is particularly useful in situations like these, because they take on the responsibility of packing up and removing the possessions from the property, donating and disposing of its contents in a timely fashion, allowing the property manager to proceed with preparations for the next potential tenant. While it may save you money to handle the removal process on your own, seeking the help of professionals allows things to be handled much faster and safer, as they have the necessary training and equipment required for the removal of large/heavy items.
Sometimes there is a more extreme side to property abandonment that you may have to deal with, on top of having a tenant who flees, you may have a tenant who fills the property to the brim with a hoard, before moving on to the next rental property. Rather than taking days to remove all of the abandoned items on your own, a junk removal team is equipped to handle things in a fraction of the time, leaving the property manager to deal with other necessary renovations.
Junk removal services can even assist with post-renovation clean-up; say you have spent a lot of time remodelling a property yourself, perhaps painting the walls or cabinetry, or replacing a carpeted floor for a hardwood one, a junk removal team could properly dispose of all materials from the job, so you do not have to worry about hauling everything away yourself, and can spend more time on your other equally important duties.
So the next time you are looking to refresh a property, make repairs, or do some serious clean-ups, we hope that you will consider researching your local junk removal professionals, as they can contribute a lot more to your projects than you may think!
