Houston Wood and Lumber Disposal

There is no escaping the simple fact that “fire” loves wood. It’s the best fuel. That’s great when you want to have a cozy fire in the fireplace on a cold night but not so great when a potential threat from a brush fire kicks up. While it is true that no wood is completely fire proof, there are some types of lumber that have been created to be fire resistant. Typically, this type of wood will char in a fire but won’t actually ignite and burn. That will cut back on fire from spreading across a property and give the local FD a chance to respond in case of an emergency.

When you consider the benefits of this type of material you might want to rethink the wood structures you have on your property. Whether it’s a fence, garage, shed or deck replacing that wood with fire resistant lumber could provide an added level of protection for your property and peace of mind. Replacing any one of those types of structures will be a big undertaking but one part of that project where you can get help is with the old lumber removal. That’s where Junk King Houston can step up to the plate and make a huge difference.

Spring Cleaning Tips in Houston

A real spring cleaning isn’t just the normal dusting and sweeping you do every week but a thorough floor to ceiling cleaning and that includes your walls. In fact, what was the last time you cleaned your walls? It’s amazing what kind of gunk can build up on our walls especially if there is a smoker in the house. A good wall cleaning mix if 1/2 cup of ammonia, 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1 gallon of warm water. If you have wallpaper than tie a dust cloth to a broom to “sweep” your walls. And don’t forget your exterior walls. A stroll around your home with a long power hose should do the trick.

Window cleaning works best with newspaper or lint free cloth. A spray bottle with 3 tablespoons ammonia, 1 tablespoon vinegar and the rest with water should do the trick. Rubbing alcohol works great on bathroom mirrors. If you think these are bizarre recipes check your cleaning products. You’ll find the same ingredients but with all those colored dyes to make it look like you’re buying something special. Save money and use what you have around the house.

Another way to get your house sparkling for spring is to make sure you toss out all your clutter. Whether you’ve got shoes and clothes in a closet that you no longer wear or a garage full of your family’s castoffs, you will be a lot happier when you can get rid of all that stuff.
