Do you know what to look for in a new carpet? Yes, color and pattern are the first things that will attract your eye to a particular style but there are some other factors you should be aware of such as twist, stain protection and getting a professional installer. Since this is a major purchase and something you’ll be living with for several years you want to make sure you get the carpet pick right!
The twist in a carpet refers to the individual yarn pieces found in the fabric. Yes, you’ll have to get in close to examine the twist and if you have a magnifying glass then bring it! The number of twists per piece of yarn will reveal the density of the pile and how it will feel. Keep in mind that the height of the pile has nothing to do with its density. The more twists you have the more spring in your step. This also translates into better visuals when it comes to hiding footprints.
No matter where you’ll be placing your carpet, stain protection should be a major consideration. A carpet in a heavy traffic area should be cleaned twice a year. This doesn’t mean vacuuming but a deep cleaning with shampoo. The good news is you can rent one of these cleaners from your local grocery store. Today, there are some amazing strain resistant protections that are part of a c carpet design. Ask for a demonstration in the store.
Just as you should be looking for a reputable dealer to sell you the carpet you also want to make sure they are providing you with a reputable installer. If they are hiring an outside contractor, don’t hesitate to shop around to see if you can get a better deal or use someone a friend has recommended.
Before the new carpet can be put down you’ll want to prepare the floor. Not only will this mean a layer of padding but removing the old carpet. Even if your installer will be taking up the old carpet there is no guarantee they’ll be able to dispose of it properly. That’s why you should hire Junk King Chattanooga before the carpet arrives. A Junk King crew will have no problem rolling up that old carpet and loading it onto the back of their truck. On that same trip they’ll be able to take away any other oversized item you want to toss out like old living room furniture or junk from your garage. Why not make a clean sweep of things through your home? It’s easy when you’ve got Junk King Chattanooga on your side.
When it comes to bulky item pickups the city of Chattanooga has a program called Trash Flash. You can put an item out on the curb, call up a dedicated hotline and schedule an appointment pickup. However, there are a lot of limitations with this program. First, there is the long list of things they won’t pickup. This includes 55-gallon drums, auto parts, brick, building materials, concrete, dirt, drywall, lumber, recyclables, tile, tires and insulation. In other words, if you’ve got waste leftover from a remodeling job you’re out of luck with this program.
The next big issue is the fact that you have to drag whatever oversize item you want to get rid of out to the curb. Suppose you have a sofa you want to toss out. Can you carry that out to the curb by yourself? Maybe you can get help but then you’ll have a sofa sitting on your curb. Just because the city has a number to call doesn’t mean you’re going to get a fast response. That sofa could end up sitting outside for several days. If a storm comes through the area (and there is always the chance of that!) there is going to be even bigger problems. Now you’ll have a soggy mess sitting on your property. This isn’t the thing you want to show your neighbors. There is a more efficient process for picking up bulk trash items and that would be hiring Junk King Chattanooga to handle the assignment from start to finish.
You’ll have to identify the pieces you want removed from your home or yard but that’s all you’ll have to do. There is no need for you to pick up any piece and move it to the curb. The Junk King crew who is assigned to your job will do all the work. They’ll carry whatever needs to be carried from your home and onto the back of their truck. This includes anything that might be kept down the basement or up in your attic. Forget climbing the stairs. Just show the JK Chattanooga crew where the junk is and they’ll take it from there.
There is also practically no limit to what Junk King will remove. Take another look at all those items on the “not wanted” list. All of those things can be loaded onto the Junk King truck for removal. You can also add to that list any e-waste or heavy kitchen appliances. When it comes to bulk trash removal don’t leave anything to chance; call Junk King Chattanooga and get the job done right.
Buying in bulk is a fairly recent device that the average consumer uses to bring down their costs for groceries. The concept is simple: the more you buy of a particular item the lower the “per unit” cost is of that item. You might be buying more but you’ll be paying less in the long run. Of course, that might mean snagging a gallon of ketchup and a crate of hot dogs which will have you eating wieners with ketchup for days on end to make sure you finish them off before they go bad. Buying in bulk with non-perishable items can be a real cost savings.
The other type of bulk we might have in our lives are the bulky items meant for the trash heap. Because they are bulky they’re not going to fit into the garbage can. This would be things like old furniture, construction waste from a remodeling job, yard debris, mattresses and/or kitchen appliances. That’s the kind of bulk you don’t want to hang on to. To get rid of that here in Chattanooga you’re going to have to turn to the professionals as in Junk King Chattanooga.
Junk King makes hauling bulky items their business. They get this job done by dispatching an experienced crew to your home or business with a big ol’ truck standing by to be filled up. That Junk King crew will be working for you when it comes to the removal process. All you have to do is point out to them what you want taken away and they’ll do the rest. If it’s a heavy object let them do the lifting. If it needs to be brought up from the basement or down from the attic, let them do the climbing on the stairs. Bottom line: the Junk King crew is going to do all the work while you just sit back and watch your junk fly out the door.
Getting rid of bulky items means you’re going to be freeing up a lot of space around your home. There is a tendency with most folks to turn around and fill up that space with more junk. This is especially true if you’re clearing out closets to make room for more shoes or clothes. But if you’re serious about living without junk, then you could turn that open space into something more practical. There have been some folks who cleared out enough junk from a spare room to turn it into a home theater. Others have set up an office out in the garage. Even clearing out a corner in the basement where you can put a reading lamp and cozy chair is worth it. Look at it this way: when you bought your home it wasn’t to have some place to store junk. It was to be comfortable. Now you can get back to that cozy home with the help of Junk King Chattanooga.
