Colorado Refrigerator Disposal

Can you name the brand of refrigerator that is in your kitchen right now? Sometimes we forget what we actually have working for us in our very own homes. How about this question: do you know how old your fridge is? Most refrigerators are built to last a long time, but a long time doesn’t mean forever. Some folks aren’t aware that, much like a car, your fridge needs occasional maintenance. Typically, this involves replacing or flushing out hoses. If your fridge has an ice maker or water dispenser, you need to swap out the filters. If not, you could be in for a world of trouble as the filter backs up and causes the refrigerator to malfunction. That’s when it might be time for the proverbial “out with the old and in with the new.” The “out” phase can be accomplished by hiring a Colorado refrigerator disposal company like Junk King Colorado Springs. With one call, you can make sure that broken refrigerator can be hauled away to make room for your brand new model.
Remember your refrigerator brand yet? If it is a GE model then you’re not alone. GE is one of the world’s leading manufacturer and seller of kitchen appliances. General Electric was the first company to produce and sell the the “Monitor-Top” refrigerator. This was back in 1927. It was called the “Monitor-Top” because it looked just like the gun turret on the ironclad warship USS Monitor. On this model, the compressor unit was mounted on top of the cabinet was was encased win a decorative ring. This unit also produced a lot of heat. It also proved to be an instant hit with over a million units being sold in its initial run.
Back then, a chemical substance known as methyl formate was used as the coolant. This was an extremely hazardous compound. Then came Freon which was also proved to be a hazard and was banned back in the 1980s.  There are still some “not so friendly” components used in the freezing and coolant coils of a modern fridge. That’s why these units need to be disposed of properly. If your fridge breaks down and you move it out the garage or down to the basement just to “get it out of the way” you might be breaking a Colorado law if you don’t take precautions. Even a fridge in your house that isn’t being used has to be locked or have the doors removed. Of course you could avoid all this hassle by simply having that refrigerator hauled away once and for all.
Hiring a refrigerator disposal crew doesn’t mean you are limited to just disposing of the refrigerator! In fact, that very same crew could possibly take away a lot more of your unwanted junk like old mattresses, furniture or even that clunky piano that nobody is playing. Do you really need to be hanging on to that stuff? Of course not. Hire the right crew and have it taken away today.

Colorado Appliance Disposal

The popular chain Best Buy just instituted a new buy back program for a lot of their gizmos and gadgets. The idea is simple: buy a computer, laptop or phone from Best Buy and when it becomes obsolete, you can trade it in for an upgrade. Of course with today’s fast paced world of electronics that item you buy today could be ready for an upgrade in a couple of weeks! Unfortunately, this program isn’t extended to major kitchen appliances like refrigerators or washing machines. There’s a good reason for that: most of these appliances are built to run for years without the need for upgrades. When you’re ready for a new fridge, you’ll quickly discover how far technology has taken that simple concept of keeping your food cold.
Like anything else, bringing a new appliance into the  home means you’ve got to make room for it. Hiring a locally based Colorado appliance disposal company like Junk King is a great way to go. One call can put a team of professional movers on the schedule to swing by your place and take away that old appliance. If you play your cards right, the removal can occur on the same day as the arrival. It can be a smooth operation.
Of course there are those among us who have a hard time getting rid of even the little stuff – especially in Colorado. Junk can quickly pile up in a closet or cabinet. For those who embrace the love of arts and crafts, they have discovered many uses for kitchen appliances. That busted blender can be turned into a kitschy kind of flower vase. All you need to do is paint it with some flower patterns and it’s good to go.  A crock pot that no longer slow cooks like it should becomes the new family treat pot loaded with all kinds of goodies. Some industrious students have turned the old kitchen microwave into the perfect setting for this next diorama project. If the microwave happens to have a clear window then you can preserve your setting for a lifetime. Just don’t turn it on!
Of course it is easy to adapt those smaller appliances, but can you really turn your refrigerator into something practical? Should it become your new armoire? Wouldn’t that leave your clothes smelling a bit funky? What if you turn your stove into a file cabinet? Nope that’s no good. The only thing you should do with those big kitchen appliances is to haul them away. When you decide to bring in a professional junk hauling crew, you can also get rid of the rest of the junk that’s sitting around your home serving no practical purpose other than taking up space. Once you do get rid of all that junk not only will your home be more open, but you’ll be surprised to find your mind can become free of clutter as well. Bottom line: a little junk removal goes a long way.
