Charlotte Spring Junk Removal

The wacky weather that has hit the country this year has brought spring into the Charlotte area a lot sooner than anyone anticipated. The result is that pollen is everywhere. It’s covering Lake Norman, dusting cars and the ground. By some estimates this is the worst season for pollen in over ten years.

All of this can be traced back to the warm weather that has swept through the Charlotte area. On the average it has been five degrees higher than normal. This has tricked plants and trees into blooming earlier and in a short amount of time. Normally, this blooming is spread out over a couple of weeks which allows the pollen to spread out a bit more. Now it has exploded in two days which has left many residents heading indoors. What are the numbers? Last year the oak pollen count was just 1,200 grams per cubic meter. This year the count was as high as 8,829 grams per cubic meter. That’s a lot of pollen.

With all of those particles flying about, it might motivate you to begin your spring cleaning project earlier. A proactive approach to take is to line up an appointment with Junk King Charlotte to help with your mission. Junk King is a local business who specializes in all kinds of Charlotte junk removal. So what does junk removal have to do with your spring cleaning? Everything! In order to really get clean, you’ve got to first get rid of the clutter. What’s great about hiring Junk King is that they’ll be all the “muscle” you’ll need to get the job done. If you go through your home and identify those big items you want removed, then all you need to do is tell the Junk King crew what to take away. They’ll handle the rest.

Junk King Charlotte isn’t afraid of getting dirty to get the job done. They’re also not afraid of stairs. That means having them make the trips up and down the basement or attic will be a lot better than having you do that heavy lifting. Hiring Junk King can provide the right motivation to really go deep with your spring cleaning project. If you know you have an empty truck at your disposal there is no telling what you’ll finally be able to get rid of. Everything can go such as unused furniture, bedroom sets, cribs, ping-pong tables, pianos and whatever else can’t fit into the garbage can. While they are at it, the Junk King Charlotte can also do a complete sweep of your front and backyard to remove all of the debris that might be piled up there. They can haul off fallen tree limbs, shrubs, pieces of concrete or rusty patio furniture. Put it this way, if you want to get rid of it, Junk King will take it away. That’s going to make any spring cleaning smooth sailing!

Charlotte Garage Junk Clean Out

Recently the Charlotte Fire Department responded to an early-morning fire that began in a garage and spread quickly to the rest of the home. This occurred on Lockley Drive in Eastover. Fortunately, the couple who lived in the house was alerted to the fire by smoke alarms. It was suspected that lightning might have been the cause of starting his fire as rolling thunderstorms crept through the neighborhood just before the fire started up. In order for lightning to start a fire there needs to be some “kindling” to strike. While there is no mention in this particular case that this garage was overflowing with junk, it stands to reason that it certainly wasn’t sparse. This is a primary reason for clearing out junk in your own garage or home: removing a potential fire hazard.

The average garage often becomes a veritable dumping ground for all the things we don’t want in our houses. A lot of these items are things we want in storage like old golf clubs, a kayak, a ping-pong table, Christmas decorations or tools. The garage is also the place for any kind of hazardous material like solvents, cleaning products, paint thinner or motor oil. So imagine, if you will, all of those things gather together in a tiny “box.” It’s a wonder more fires don’t start that way!

There are better ways to use your garage; not the least of which is to park your car there. Many folks appreciate the fact that a home has a garage and this becomes a great selling feature for real estate brokers. Ironically, that garage is quickly filled up with junk that the car never stands a chance of being parked in there. For all practical purposes, a garage is simply another room in your home. You could adapt your garage into a viable workspace or guest room. Like the rest of your home it is still structurally sound; it just has a really big door! That door can actually be removed and replaced with a wall with very little effort. The concrete floor can be covered in tile or wood laminate. Add in some insulation and you’ve created a very cozy space. With very little effort you this new room could become a home office or a spare room for visiting family members. But the first thing you need to do is get rid of all that junk!

That task is actually easily accomplished when you call upon the services of a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Charlotte. If you are not discriminating with sorting through your junk you could literally throw open the doors of your garage and have these professional junk haulers back the truck up. Then the simple command of “get rid of it all!” Before you know it your garage is cleared out. If you need to sort through your junk then just drag the items you want taken away out to the driveway and let the pros handle the rest! You’ll be reducing the risk of fire and reclaiming of valuable space in your home.
