Roswell Junk Removal

The most recent snowstorm put Atlanta in the news and not in a good way. While most of the east coast was digging out from several feet of snow, Atlanta had the distinction of being the city where around 2,000 cars were abandoned along the freeways as the snow piled up. The Governor had to admit that, “We did not make preparations early enough.” The first problem was all the gridlock that occurred when folks rushed home as the first snowflakes began to fall. En route, some cars were stuck, others ran out of gas and others just slid off the road. Let’s face it; this was an epic fail that folks will be talking about for some time and spring is still weeks away!

Atlanta Junk Removal In 2014

It doesn’t take much to slow down the city. We’re talking about bad weather. The most recent winter storm that blew through Atlanta just after the first of the year had many city services scrambling to keep up. Among the hardest hit was the Department of Public Works. Here is the email blast that went out to the customers: “We sent a notice of delay out on yesterday to advise that due to inclement weather, pick-up services for household garbage and yard trimmings are delayed for the remainder of the week.” This kind of delay can actually lead to a ripple effect. If you have to stuff your cans with two weeks of garbage, then the chances of them overflowing and spilling into the street increases.

Is Your Fridge Running?

Is it time to throw out the old Fridge? Junk King Atlanta would be happy to come remove your old refrigerator or freezer! Expect a good price, excellent service, and we will recycle it for you. But first, let’s make sure the old fridge really is broken. Follow these five simple steps:

1. Check the plug and circuit box to make sure your fridge is getting power.

2. Check the thermostat to make sure you didn’t accidentally bump it into the off position.

3. Make sure the vents in the back of the fridge or freezer aren’t blocked.

4. Ensure your condenser coils—at the back of, or underneath your fridge—are clean. You can use a coil brush or a vacuum to clean the coils.

5. Ensure that the condenser fan spins freely. If your condenser coils are on the back of your fridge, you won’t have a fan.

If the fan doesn’t turn, unplug fridge try to clean the fan blades. Then plug in the fridge and watch to make sure that the fan spins when the compressor turns on. If the fan doesn’t spin, you need to replace it. The parts run from $7 to $30 for most models.

If the fridge is dead, you’ll need a new one. Some stores provide free delivery and haul away—score! If the store tells you the haul-away fee is greater than $89, then you owe it to yourself to call Junk King Atlanta for a free estimate.
