Decluttering Your Basement: Why it’s important

Nov 9, 2022

No matter who you are or what type of space you live in, it’s virtually impossible to avoid accumulating some amount of junk. It may start as an organized area for storage but all it takes is one rushed moment of tossing something into that closet or basement and you’ve entered the slippery slope of haphazard clutter. One of the areas of the home most prone to this accumulation of junk is the basement. Most people use their basement as extra storage and without proper maintenance and thoughtful consideration that storage can quickly turn into something else. Decluttering your basement will provide a lot of benefits such as less pests, more usable space, and better and safer access. Reach out to 1st Class Junk Removal to find out how we can help you turn your unusable basement into the space of your dreams!

Pest Control

Like it or not, your basement is pests’ dream home. All manner of bugs love to accumulate in a basement’s cool, dark space. If your basement is packed tight with different storage items it’s providing the perfect nesting place for pests which can create a range of problems in your home such as:

  • Causing itchy, uncomfortable bites
  • Allergic reactions
  • Damage to the home both structurally and cosmetically

Either way, pests do not make for pleasant houseguests and are one of the many reasons to go ahead and call 1st Class Junk Removal to help declutter your basement.

Usable Space

One of the biggest benefits of decluttering your basement is gaining back all that usable space. While basements have traditionally been used for different types of storage it’s become more and more common for them to be remodeled and turned into extra living areas. Some great options for your extra space could be:

  • Home office
  • In-home library
  • Exercise room
  • Extra bedroom

No matter what you decide, once you’ve used professionals to help clear out your basement junk the possibilities are endless!

Safer Access

Safe access to the different areas of your home is extremely important especially if there are older residents or young children living in the home. Safe access helps prevent:

  • Dangerous falls
  • Inability to access items
  • Fire hazards

Trying to navigate through a packed and cluttered basement can end up causing an array of safety concerns. Decluttering your basement will help keep your home safe for everyone!
