Charlotte Air Conditioner Disposal

According to the folks who watch the weather, this past summer was one of the hottest on record. When was the previous record set? That would be last summer! Fall has arrived and the air conditioners are being switched off all around Charlotte but you might want to think about keeping those ACs off permanently. While it is true that you get a kind of instant rush from the heat outdoors by stepping into an AC cooled room, long time exposure to the kind of closed environments created by an AC controlled room could be bad for your health.

There have been studies conducted which found that people living in buildings with central AC are more susceptible to airborne diseases than those living with natural ventilation. That’s because once a germ particle gets into a room with an AC it has nowhere to go but to swirl around that room beginning breathed in and out. Why do you think so many people get sick on a five hour airplane flight? They’re stuck with the germs.

“But what about the heat?” you might ask. To prepare yourselves for next summer, you could install a couple of ceiling fans. These are terrific alternatives to air conditioners and offer quiet, cool air that is circulated throughout the room. Best of all you can keep your windows open for a fresh breeze. A ceiling fan will greatly reduce your electric bill. You’re sure to appreciate those savings a lot more than a temporary cool down from an AC.

Staying cool really isn’t all that complicated. The best thing you can do is to keep drinking water. Add a slice of orange or lemon to for a splash of flavor. Having a cool towel wrapped around your neck is also a terrific way to beat the heat indoors. All of these options can present a better alternative to AC use. If you’re ready to kick the habit then you’ll need to get rid of that old AC. To do that you only need to make a single call to Junk King Charlotte.

Even if you want to swap out the AC for a more energy efficient model that has stronger air filters you’ll still want to call Junk King Charlotte for the disposal duties. An air conditioner is not something you can simply toss out with the kitchen garbage. Thankfully the Junk King crew will be able to pull your old unit out of the wall and carry it off to their truck without much of a hassle. As an added bonus, that same Junk King crew can cart off any other junk item you want to get rid of and yes, they’ll carry those out as well!

Charlotte Landscaping Cleanup

Recently a local Charlotte business has found a novel way to deal with their landscaping clean-up: hire a goat. The Charlotte Cemetery Commission is now using sheep and goats to keep the lawns trim. Actually, this is not a new concept. Out in California, a trendy Malibu community rents goats to clear fields about their homes of brush. This actually helps prevent dangerous fires from creeping down to their properties. Renting goats and sheep is a truly eco-friendly way of mowing the lawn.

Of course, it’s not the most practical of landscaping cleanup solutions especially for a homeowner. Sure if you don’t care much about your backyard gardens you could let a goat or two loose back there but they might not stop at chomping on the grass. Say good-bye to any flowers in your garden! You also have to keep in mind that for every item that a goat takes in it will “expel” another item. Yes, this would be a great source of fertilizer in an open field but for your backyard not so much. There’s also the issue of the non-vegetation cleanup you might need. A goat can’t get rid of rusty patio furniture or a fallen tree limb left over from the last storm. That’s when you’ll need to bring in a professional “two-legged” crew, the kind of crew you can hire with Junk King Charlotte.

Junk King Charlotte is a local business part of a nationwide franchise of professional junk haulers. All across the country, folks are taking advantage of the Junk King crews to help them get rid of all kinds of clutter. Now Charlotte residents can tap into those same kinds of professional crews to help with their landscaping cleanup.

This is a perfect time of the year to do a landscaping cleanup. The summer is winding down and it’s time to get ready to batten down the hatches for winter. Instead of covering up patio furniture you might not even use next year, why not get rid of it? If you’ve got debris left over from the last storm, why not get rid of that too? You can in one appointment with Junk King.

One of the many benefits of hiring Junk King Charlotte is that they’ll arrive with a big enough truck to take away whatever you want tossed out. If you’ve been the unfortunate recipient of a fallen tree limb you might be asking how to get rid of that. Just call Junk King. They’ll have the manpower and the tools to bust up that limb and take it away. That holds true for piece of your patio or deck that might have broken off as well as any other kinds of scraps that should be tossed out. If you really want to see a goat in action, visit your local petting zoo but let the Junk King take care of your cleanup.
