Minneapolis Attic Junk Removal

attic cleanupHow safe is your attic? Recently there have been a rash of fires around Minneapolis that have resulted in the destruction of homes. Most of these fires originated in the attics of these homes. Luckily, there have been no injures but there has been a lot of damage.

Depending on your home, an attic is often a forgotten space. If it is just rafters and insulation you could use it to store some boxes. If it is a space that you can actually walk up into it becomes an even bigger storage locker. Is that the best use of the space? Then there is the safety issue. Heat can build up in an attic. All it takes is for a little static electricity to set off a spark. Sometimes outside critters like squirrels or raccoons burrow their way into the attic and set up home. They can chew at wires causing sparks and fire.

Maybe it’s time for an attic inspection. It could be that the inspection will reveal you’ve got a lot of junk to get rid of. Instead of hauling it all down, call Junk King Minneapolis right away. They’ll send over a capable work crew who won’t have a problem going up and down the attic to retrieve your junk. Don’t worry if it takes one trip or a dozen, the Junk King crew will get the job done. Best of all, they don’t have to stop at the attic. That same crew will go to any place in your home to remove any size junk item.

You might not like calling an old sofa or piano junk but the moment you stop using it and want to get rid of it that is exactly what it has become. Yes, you could try selling that item on Craigslist but that means inviting all kinds of strangers into your home. Loading up the junk yourself isn’t an option because most bulky pieces need at least two people to carry not to mention a big enough vehicle. Then you’ll have to drive around Minneapolis until you find the proper place to dump. You’ll also be paying a dump fee. That’s gas, your time, your aching back and dumps fees to get the job done. Doesn’t Junk King sound better? It’s true that you’ll be paying Junk King Minneapolis as well but when you add up all those factors you’re definitely going to come out ahead.

Don’t let another day go by without inspecting your attic or calling Junk King to get rid of all your unwanted stuff.

 

Lawn Mower Disposal in Minneapolis – Junk King Removal

Minneapolis Lawn Mower DisposalThe Minnesota Department of Agriculture has some fall lawn care tips for you to think about. Believe it or not, raking your leaves is a good way to maintain your water quality. That’s because the dead leaves can release phosphate and nitrates. When those dead leaves freeze up then melt the runoff will be loaded with those compounds that can seep into the water around your lawn. That could end up turning everything brown. They also suggest that a “final dose” of fertilizer should be applied up to late October. After that your grass might not be able to absorb the nutrients because the ground could harden in the cooler weather. Fall is the best time to repair your lawn with seeding or sodding. And you thought you only had to do all this work in the spring!

According to the lawn care tips, it’s vital that you keep up your lawn mowing chores throughout the fall. Your grass shouldn’t get any higher than 2 1/2 inches. Beyond that it could start to mat. Any shorter than 2 inches and you’re cutting off your lawn’s ability to store food throughout the winter. All of this brings up the issue of how your lawnmower is running. Good? Bad? Or done for? If you’re in the market for a new mower now it is a great time to score on a deal. It’s like buying Christmas decorations the day after Christmas: everything is on sale when it is off-season.
