The city of Cincinnati recently overhauled its trash collection operation which meant new trashcans for everyone! Along with the 88,000 carts that were dropped off throughout the city, there were some new rules enacted. First of all, whatever trash you’re throwing out has to fit into that can. This means the lid has to close. The municipal workers will no longer pick up any overflow. No matter how insignificant you might think that extra bag of trash or box of papers might be if it’s not in the trashcan it’s going to stay on the curb. The goal is to make the permanent switch over to automatic trash pickups. The trucks will be doing all the work.
So, what happens if you have overflow or want to get rid of something bulky like an old couch? You might think that if you can manage to drag that sofa down to the curb that somebody will come by and pick it up. Maybe if you’re lucky and it’s within the first few minutes of your “drop off.” Beyond that you run the risk of that sofa being assaulted by the neighborhood dogs who a looking to mark their territory. If the sofa spends the night on the curb, then the next morning it could be drenched in dew. From that moment on it is truly a piece of junk that nobody is going to want. Then what happens? You could be fined. On the other hand you could avoid all of those complications by making a call to Junk King Cincinnati.
When Junk King takes on the task you’re guaranteed that all of your unwanted stuff will be collected and disposed of in a single trip. What you need to focus on is what you’ll be tossing out. You can start with the old sofa but there is really no limit to how much junk you can finally get rid of. This is because you’ll be working with a professional team of junk haulers who have the muscle and the truck space to clear out all your clutter.
As soon as the Junk King Cincinnati crew arrives to your home you can point them in the direction of your junk. They’ll climb the stairs, do the lifting and then carry that item right out and onto the back of the truck. Within a few moments you could have an entire room emptied out. Your garage could be clear and your closets will be sparse. This is your chance to reclaim all that wonder open space you had when you first moved into your home. Junk King can help you get there!
Just in time for back to school, returning students to the University of Dayton are going to see the beginnings of a $70 million renovation project that is going to be spread out all across the campus. Slated for make-overs are the GE Aviation Dayton Electrical Power Research Lab, Founders Hall and the Roesch Library. This is going to mean new roofs, boilers, workspaces, equipment and furniture.
Imagine if you had $70 million to spend on your home makeover? You’d probably sell the house and buy a tropical island! At the very least you might splurge for some new furniture. Truth be told, it is not that expensive to replace a piece or two of furniture. In fact, just swapping out an old sofa could be enough to totally freshen up your living room. The issue then becomes what to do with the old sofa. If you have space in your garage or basement you could try and keep it there but if you’re really done with that sofa why hang onto it? Perhaps the better way to go is hiring Junk King to come by and haul it away.
Junk King is the local Dayton based junk removal company that is part of a national franchise. This means they are following very strict guidelines with regard to conducting business. Without that they wouldn’t be able to carry the Junk King brand. That is indeed a very valuable brand in this type of service industry. All you need to do is read the amazing reviews on the Junk King Facebook page to see how many satisfied customers have already turned to Junk King for all kinds of removal.
When it comes to getting rid of your old furniture, Junk King is a perfect partner but why stop there? If you have a child going off to college it might be time to rethink their room. You don’t have to kick them out of the house but there could be some items in there that are no longer needed. The same can be said for any of your children who are outgrowing their furniture. Let Junk King load it all up on a single trip and make room in your house for more practical things. You might even find a way to repurpose an entire room. What’s your wish? A reading nook? Home theater? That can happen but first you have to clear out the clutter and Junk King is the only way to go. Give them a call today to set up your personal junk removal appointment.
When you get right down to it, there isn’t a lot you have to do to have a decent pampering session in Cincinnati. Sure you can invest in a trip to a nearby day spa where you’ll be scrubbed, bathed and rubbed to your heart’s content. But you can also accomplish the same kind of soothing without the extravagant expense.
One of the simplest and most cost effective pampering treats is to soak your feet in a small pan of warm water. Add a little baby oil infused with vitamin E for an extra pleasurable sensation. After your feet have soaked for several minutes try a little foot scrubbing. There are many decent sponges and scrubs you can get at your local drugstore. Even old-fashioned sea salt works great. Once you’re done, apply lotion to your feet and slip into some cushy socks or slippers. That’s the exact kind of foot treatment you would be getting at a four star resort and it probably costs you a few dollars.
For more pampering, take a relaxing bubble bath but make sure to add a few special touches like scented candles, a glass of wine and your favorite tunes on an iPod. You could even add a mud facemask for the duration. Don’t stay in the water beyond it getting cold. You want to keep that warm sensation as long as possible.
The one commodity you’ll need for a good foot soak or bubble bath might be the hardest one to come by and that would be “time.” If you’ve got a long list of chores to accomplish carving out an hour for those little pleasures might seem too much. That’s why you should think about Junk King Cincinnati as a way to help you get your pampering off to a great start.
Junk King is the professional junk removal company in Cincinnati who takes all the hassle and stress out of cleaning your home. They might not do any dusting or moping but a Junk King crew will certainly do all the heavy lifting when it comes to getting rid of bulky items such as furniture or kitchen appliances. They’ll also be the ones who will drive your junk to a recycling center or landfill. When you add up all the travel time and unloading and loading you’re probably looking at a couple of hours work. The only time you’ll be giving up is watching the JK Cincinnati crew remove you items and taking a few minutes to pick out what you want to get gone. The sooner you can cross off “junk removal” from your to-do list the sooner you can get to the much deserved pampering!
Like the many charitable organizations in Cincinnati, New Life Furniture has a clear mission statement: “We are a furniture bank; we collect gently used furniture, inspect and clean it, and deliver the items directly to the homes of families in need. Many of our clients have recently overcome homelessness, suffered a recent accident or natural disaster or have fled from an abusive situation. In all cases the families we serve are in dire need, but have shown they are working diligently to better their life circumstances. Many live at or below the poverty level, making it difficult, if not impossible, for them to purchase basic items for their homes. It is our hope that we can in some small way ease their burden by providing most of their furniture needs that make a basic living space a home.”
That is a wonderful mission to be on and it’s just the kind of charity organization that Junk King Cincinnati likes to partner up with. This doesn’t mean Junk King helps New Life Furniture clear out their junk. Instead, they could be on the receiving end of some of the discarded furniture items that the professional junk hauling service picks up every day. That means your old sofa, chair, mattress, table or bedroom set could be given a new life and find a new home. It’s just a matter of moving it from point “A” to point “B.” Point “A” would be your home. After making an appointment with Junk King, they’ll dispatch a capable crew of heavy lifters to your home to pick up whatever you want thrown out. Point “B” can be those charity organizations that accept furniture in need of a little repair and fix up. After they give that furniture the once over, it will be handed out to those in need.
It’s true that some furniture is beyond help. That could be why you’re getting rid of it in the first place. But if it’s a matter of replacing cushions or refinishing than Junk King will make the right call and insure that those items end up at the right charities. You won’t have to worry about extra charges or which charity is open; Junk King will handle all that.
Keep in mind that Junk King Cincinnati will also be able to remove a lot more than just furniture from your home or apartment. You might be in the mood to clear out your garage of unfinished projects that will never be finished. There could be all kinds of yard waste to get rid of. Just about anything you want tossed out can be piled onto the back of a Junk King truck. They’ll take it from there to where ever it should go. Are you ready to get junk free with Junk King?
It’s time for a New Year which also means time for New Year’s resolutions. The number one resolution on everyone’s list always seems to be to get into better shape. That is why nearly every gym in the Cincinnati area will experience an uptick in memberships. Knowing this has those same gyms making terrific offers for new members. But it’s not just the lower costs which make joining a gym a proactive choice to improve your health. There are many other benefits of a gym membership.
For instance, making new friends. When you set up a workout routine you’ll end up seeing the same folks and trainers doing their thing. It’s not a stretch to imagine striking up conversations and building some lasting friendships. After all, you’re all sharing a common goal of getting into shape and honoring your resolution.
A gym membership is also going to be a stronger motivating factor for you to continue working out. Yes, you might have invested in some home exercise equipment like free weights or a treadmill but that was no guarantee that proximity would equal weight loss. That’s probably because you got bored of doing the same workout over and over again. That’s one sure way to kill your motivation to get into shape. At the gym, you’ll never be bored. That’s because there will be an abundant variety of equipment to utilize.
Then there are all the classes. Depending on the gym, you might be able to take aerobics, spinning, dance and weight lifting throughout the week. This is another great way to make new friends. Of course, the biggest plus for joining a gym is that after a couple of months (if not sooner!) you’ll be able to invest in a new wardrobe. You’ll have to!
The best course of action would be to find a gym that is close to your home or work. This way you’ll never be far from a decent workout. You might also want to get rid of all that old exercise stuff in your home. Let’s face it; you’re not going to use it and its just taking up space. This is where the Junk King Cincinnati can help.
Junk King is the Cincinnati business that is all about junk removal. If you want to get rid of a treadmill you’re not going to be able to toss it out with the trash. Remember what it took to get that thing in your home? You’re going to need at least two capable movers and a big truck. That’s just what you’ll be getting with Junk King. Give them a call today to see how that can help with your exercise equipment junk removal. They’ll have it all taken away in plenty of time for you to get to the gym!
Compared to the east coast, Cincinnati was spared the brunt of damage from the recent Hurricane Sandy. Yes, there was a lot of rain and some flooding but the damage was minimal. That didn’t mean the folks around here just sat back and let the storm pass them by. They sprang into action. Over at Duke Energy, there were teams standing by to make sure Cincinnati residents wouldn’t be trapped without power. Once that was clear, those teams headed east to help out the repair effort in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. The Matthew 25 Ministries also geared up with food, water and cleaning supplies. When the storm moved on, they moved in. Their 135,000-square-foot warehouse was ready to load trucks within 20 minutes of getting the first call. That’s just how we roll here in Cincinnati.
If you did suffer some storm damage then you know how important it is to get that cleaned up as quickly as possible. Anything laden down with water has the potential to spur mold growth and that’s not something you want around your home. Trees soaked with rain might not have toppled over in this storm but you would be well advised to consider trimming back some of those heavy branches to prevent serious damage in the next storm. All of that cleanup or preventative work is not something you need to do by yourself. You can enlist the help of qualified junk removal specialist like the Junk King Cincinnati.
Even before the storm hit, Junk King was busy helping folks clear out the clutter of their lives. Their crews were able to move out all kinds of bulk items from garages, basements and attics. This was a big help to those folks who wanted to get that space back. After the storm, if those folks had any debris to toss out, Junk King got the call. It didn’t matter what needed to be tossed out, the Junk King crew can fill up their truck with anything you can imagine. They’ll also make sure that stuff is properly disposed off. This matters a lot when it comes to keeping Cincinnati clean and environmentally safe.
Now you can put Junk King Cincinnati to work for you in your home or business. This is the perfect time of the year to get rid of all the clutter as you make way for some holiday celebrations. If you’re planning to have out of town visitors you want to make them feel welcome which means getting all old furniture out of the guest room and making space in the closets. What it all comes down to is the Junk King phone number is one you’ll want to keep handy throughout the year. Whether it’s a storm clean up or spring cleaning, let Junk King lend a hand.
Around the Cincinnati area there was a 12.5% increase in home sales in August compared to the same time last year. Here’s how the numbers break down: “County real estate agents closed on sales of 388 houses last month, the highest number of sales for the month of August in four years, according to figures provided by the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors. Approximately 345 homes sold in August 2011, 275 in August 2010 and 374 in August 2009.”
“We only missed passing 2008 by four transactions,” said Tom Hasselbeck, vice president and sales manager of Sibcy Cline Realtors’ Fairfield office, and president of Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors. Clearly that’s a good sign that the housing market is on the mend. This means that local realtors have to step up their game in order to stay competitive and that might require a little out of the box thinking to land those prospective and qualified new home buyers.
Although home sales are bouncing back, there are still many foreclosed properties waiting to get in on the action. The banks and lending companies would like nothing better than to clear those toxic assets off the books. As a realtor you could jump in and take over the listing for those homes. First you have to remove the “stigma” of a foreclosed property. That can be accomplished when you partner up with Junk King Cincinnati.
Junk King is a local Cincinnati business that is all about junk removal. Typically, Junk King is hired by homeowners and business owners to help them clear out the clutter in their lives. But you can put Junk King to work as a foreclosure cleanup crew. Too often folks who have left a home under the dark cloud of foreclosure did so without much regard for that property. They probably left a lot of things behind that they simply couldn’t bother with. You can instruct the Junk King Cincinnati crew to clean out a home from top to bottom. This is an easier job for Junk King than the typical residential cleanup. That’s because with the homeowner, stuff is being left behind and the crew has to work around those items. That includes any left behind furniture, drapes, carpet, mattresses, kitchen appliances and garbage. It can all be carted away!
The Junk King crew also has their own truck and will handle the proper disposal of those items. You won’t be paying for any dumping fees or labor costs. The only charge you’ll incur is based on the amount of space the junk will take up in the truck. This cost is provided in advance by a Junk King supervisor who provides a written estimate for the work. With a Junk King Cincinnati crew, you’ll be able to get that foreclosed home cleaned up and back on the market in a snap.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
A rise in stolen scrap metal has caused the Public Safety Committee of the Cincinnati City Council to get together and discuss a possible ordinance that might put restrictions on the sale of scrap metal within the city. Scrap metal thieves have been targeting pretty much anything they can get their hands on made out of metal. This includes pipes, hubcaps and a whole range of appliances from air conditioners to stoves. Typically, a homeowner or apartment resident might need to replace those big appliance items and ends up dragging the old appliance out to the curb or backyard. This becomes a prime target for scrap metal thieves. What the Cincinnati City Council is looking to do is to cut off their source of revenue by putting restrictions on those who want to sell scrap metal in the city.
The ordinance that is being discussed would require anyone who wants to sell scrap metal in Cincinnati to submit for a background check and pay for a license. Unfortunately, this news isn’t going over big with the scrap metal dealers who fear that adding these extra burdens on their potential sellers will force them out of business.
While this issue is being debated upon, Cincinnati residents in need of getting rid of their major appliances have very few options for proper disposal. They can continue to drag the old appliances out to the curb but that’s only going to create an eyesore and a problem for the neighbors. The best course of action is to hire the services of professional movers who can cart away those bulky appliances. Any time you buy a new refrigerator or stove that item is going to be delivered on the back of a truck. Doesn’t it make sense to find a truck to get rid of the old equipment? That’s where the professional junk haulers like Junk King Cincinnati come into play.
If you’re shopping for new kitchen appliances you might find that many of the companies you’re buying from will offer free installation services. However, they will probably still charge for delivery. Nowhere is there a mention of removing the old item. This is something that you’ll have to take care of on your own but you shouldn’t be discouraged by this extra task. Junk King Cincinnati means you’re getting experienced haulers who are licensed and insured. That’s definitely a much better approach to this type of work then hiring strangers off the street to come into your home.
What’s great about hiring professional junk haulers is that they can take away more than just your worn-out refrigerator or stove. You’ll be able to take advantage of their big truck by loading it up with all sorts of junk you might have been hanging onto for no good reason. The arrival of a new refrigerator could actually turn into the perfect excuse to clean out the clutter from the rest of your home. You’ll be able to take back all your closet and attic space by removing all that garbage once and for all.

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.
