Cincinnati Patio Furniture Removal

Summer is a time for backyard fun. But as everyone in Cincinnati has experienced, sometimes that backyard fun can be ruined by swarming mosquitoes. Whether you’re grilling for dinner or just trying to relax those nasty blood suckers can have you racing indoors. It doesn’t have to be that way especially when there are so many helpful hints out there to prevent mosquito bites. Have you tried these?

  1. Citronella: This is a popular method for repelling all kinds of bugs. The special scent found in Citronella candles and torches keeps the bugs away for as long as they are burning.
  2. Repellent Sprays: There are plenty of repellent sprays on the market which can be equally effective. Some folks would prefer a natural repellent that they know will be safe.
  3. Listerine: Yes, that same thing you use to garble with can scare off the mosquitoes. When you sense the bugs swarming, spray a mist of Listerine and water from a spray bottle in the direction of the bugs. They’ll go running.
  4. Lemon: In this case the lemon you should use is lemon thyme, lemon grass or lemon balm. The leaves of those plants are not a favorite of the mosquitoes.
  5. Light colors: Believe it or not, dark clothing colors like black, navy blue or dark green actually attract mosquitoes. So, if you’re going to be hanging outdoors, the brighter and bolder the better when it comes to clothing choices.

Getting rid of mosquitoes isn’t the only item on your “prepare for summer” to-do list. What about your patio furniture? Chances are you’ve kept your furniture outdoors all winter and it took a pretty good beating. Patio furniture is design to weather all kinds of storms by through the years even the sturdiest of chairs and tables could end up rusting or falling apart. This is especially true if your patio furniture choice is any type of wicker or wood. If you’re ready to swap out your old furniture for new pieces then you should consider hiring a group of professional junk haulers to get the job done – Junk King Cincinnati.

These junk haulers will have no problem tossing your old patio furniture onto the back of their big truck. You could also direct them to toss a lot of other junk onto that truck. From the backyard, you might also be looking to replace the old grill. There could be piles of dirt, pieces of broken concrete or scraps of lumber. Anything you want gone can be gone with Junk King.

They can also help you clear out your garage, basement, attic or any other area in your home that has junk it shouldn’t have. This type of total home sweep out is a great way to start the summer. Just remember, working up a sweat will also keep away the mosquitoes but the only ones who will be doing that will be those junk haulers. You stick with the Listerine!

Cincinnati Computer Recycling and Disposal

Recently GreenSource Cincinnati held an event downtown to allow folks drop off their e-waste. What they accepted where any kind of cables, CD-ROM drives, cell phones, circuit boards, computer speakers, monitors, DVD players, fact sheet, hard drives, keyboards, laptops, LCD monitors, mainframes, microwaves, modems, personal copiers, printers, scanners, speakers, telephones, televisions, terminals and VCR. Pretty much anything that has to do with electricity they collected except for batteries or light bulbs.

GreenSource is a local based organization dedicated to making Cincinnati as environmentally friendly as possible. While this event is certainly a benefit, it was only held on one day and only from 8 AM until noon. That’s a pretty small window of opportunity when it comes to being eco-friendly. If you couldn’t make that deadline chances are you might shrug off the idea of recycling your computer or other e-waste and instead tuck them back into closets and under beds. There is a better way and that’s by using Junk King Cincinnati, who is dedicated to this kind of junk recycling.

Computer recycling involves taking apart a hard drive or monitor and breaking it down to its basic components. While each one of those components aren’t necessarily a hazard if they were to be broken open or smashed up like your regular garbage it could release some toxic chemicals that might be a problem. That’s why when it comes to computer recycling it should only be handled by trained workers. While it is true that the professional junk haulers might not know the proper way dismantle the computer they will certainly know where to drop it off to get that job done.

That’s a big plus with hiring professionals like Junk King for this kind of job: they know where all the Cincinnati recycling centers are. You could make the most out of this opportunity by getting these same junk haulers to take away all the other clutter that’s crowding you out of your own home. After they drop off your computer at one recycling center they can then drop off your sofa at another and your old stove at yet another. While this might seem like a lot of work it’s no big deal to these junk haulers because it’s part of the regular circuit they drive every day. Even if they have to make multiple stops where all your junk is properly recycled it’s not going to add to the cost of hiring the skilled workers.

Freeing up space in your home is essential to create a more positive flow of energy. While that might sound like a “New Age” way of thinking there is some truth to that. Don’t you feel better walking into your home after it’s been thoroughly cleaned? Of course you do! Once you get rid of all your junk and electronic waste you can multiply those feelings!
