Cincinnati Old TV Disposal – Get Ready for the Superbowl

Are you ready for some football as in Super Bowl football? While it is sad fact that the awesome Cincinnati Bengals will be sitting out this year’s Super Bowl that doesn’t mean the matchup still won’t be exciting to watch. If you’re throwing a Super Bowl party you might be thinking this is a perfect excuse to finally buy that new big screen television and you would be right! Before you go shopping you should have some considerations in mind not only for the big game day but also for how you plan on using this television for the rest of the year and beyond. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you start the fun of television shopping:
Consider the Viewing Angle: No matter what kind of TV you buy there will always be a proverbial “best seat in the house.” Typically, that would be the chair directly in front of the television. But if you plan on having that Super Bowl party that is going to fill your living room with guests then you need to think about the viewing angle. Most LCD TVs have what they referred to as poor “off-axis” performance. That means anyone sitting off to the side is not going to get a good view of what’s happening on the TV. However, plasma HDTV’s don’t have any off-axis issues.
Consider the Motion Blur: This is an issue that occurs when watching something like a football game or an action movie. Most LCD TVs blur with any kind a quick motion. Some people don’t even notice this while others find it a little wonky. Basically you want to look for TV that has a high refresh rate such as 120Hz or 240Hz. A high refresh rate number results in a lower motion blur.
Consider Where to Buy: While you might be inundated with advertising circulars in your Sunday newspaper for big-screen TVs at local distributors you might also find that the best bargain is really to be had online. Yes, it is very conceivable that you could order a television online and have it delivered in time for the big game. You just want to make sure that there is a guarantee for that. There are several online retailers that are selling big ticket items like television without the local state sales tax and they might even throw in free shipping. If you still would like to get that TV from a local retailer take the price you find online into that store and see if they’ll match it.
Consider How to Get Rid of the Old TV: In order to make room for your new big screen you’ve got to get rid of that old television. The moment you decide to throw anything away that has to be plugged into an electric socket makes it a piece of official e-waste. Basically that means it can’t be disposed of by merely tossing it out the trash. Your best course of action is to hire Junk King Cincinnati’s professional junk haulers who know how to properly dispose of e-waste. While they’re at it they can also take away any other junk you want to get rid of in order to make room for the big party.

Cincinnati Refrigerator Disposal

For years if anything broke in the kitchen, many Cincinnati residents turned to Mr. Appliance of Greater Cincinnati to help them with the repairs. The crews from Mr. Appliance have been answering calls for residents and businesses making it one of the fastest and largest growing appliance repair company in the region. As a way of continuing its service to the community, Mr. Appliance recently posted some helpful kitchen safety tips on its website. The inspiration for these safety tips was the simple fact that during the holidays (and pretty much the rest of the year) the kitchen becomes a kind of “magnet” for kids. All it takes is a momentary distraction from the adults that can lead to problems in the kitchen. Here are Mr. Appliance’s kitchen safety tips:

• Stove: Turn pot and pan handles in and away from the edge of the stove.

• Microwave: Encourage children to use an oven mitt when removing hot plates or bowls

• Dishwasher: Wait until dishwasher cools down before unloading to avoid burns from a steam-heavy dishwasher.

• Refrigerator: Keep items not safe for children on higher selves and place juice boxes, apple slices and healthy snacks on the lower shelves.

Those are all great tips to follow but they’re not going to be a big help if any of those kitchen appliances are in need of replacement. Mr. Appliance’s repair crews can only go so far. If your kitchen needs new equipment then you’re going to have to make arrangements for those items to be properly disposed of. This is especially true of items like the microwave and the refrigerator. In the case of the microwave, that is considered e-waste or electronic waste and can’t be thrown out in the garbage. The fridge has certain hazardous chemicals like Freon which if released into the atmosphere could cause problems. That’s why it’s best to contract  a professional team of junk haulers like Junk King Cincinnati to get rid of your refrigerator or other major kitchen appliances.

Junk King Cincinnati will have the right amount of man power and truck space to do the deed. Speaking of that truck, take a moment to imagine what your fridge will look like on the back of that big moving truck. Lots of leftover space, right? Now imagine what you could put in that space. We’re talking about all that other junk you want to get rid of besides your old refrigerator. This is a golden opportunity to make a positive move to clear your home of junk. What would be left behind? Lots of empty closets, wide open basements and plenty of garage space. You might be tempted to start collecting more junk but you could also turn those spaces into more productive environments like a home office or guest room. And to think, all of that started with you getting rid of your old refrigerator!
