Spring Junk Removal In Minneapolis

For this year’s spring-cleaning project, you might want to adopt the three-pile rule. When sorting through your closets, under your bed and in your cabinets the clutter you find can be separated into three piles: keep it, trash it or donate it. If you have a pair of shoes or a suit that you haven’t worn in over a year it has either gone out of style or you’ve grown bored with that. Into the “donate it” pile it goes. If you uncover old magazines that you’re not going to read, then they belong in the “trash it” pile. Of course, any family photos should be taken out and put on proud display. That’s what the “keep it” pile is for.

This type of organizing isn’t just meant for closets and cabinets but for everything in your home. Your attic, basement, garage and shelves should all come into play when you are de-cluttering. Although it might be easy to box up some old shoes, getting rid of the bigger pieces like computers, furnishings and appliances will mean calling in the pros. Junk King Minneapolis can handle any type of spring-cleaning junk removal. In fact, they can pick up two of your piles!

When Junk King collects stuff from homeowners, they do their own sorting into three piles as well. These would be landfill, recycle or charity. As far as Junk King is concerned, the best option is always to recycle or donate to charity. Everything that you want to donate can be handed over to Junk King for drop off. They’ll make sure those items get to those organizations that can put them to use. In your “trash it” pile, the Junk King crew might discover there is plenty that can be recycled. This includes the obvious things like those old magazines, cardboard boxes and plastic containers. The not-so-obvious items would be your broken appliances, lumber and metal scraps and even dirt. If it can be recycled, Junk King will see to it!

Remember that when you hire Junk King, you’re really hiring your own work crew. This means you don’t have to move your piles out to the driveway. Leave them right where they are. All you have to do is show them to the Junk King crew and they’ll know what to do.

The sooner you clear out the clutter, the sooner your house can be called clean. Junk removal with Junk King can get you there.

Minneapolis Water Damage Cleanup

Icicles dangling from your roof might make for an interesting photo but they could also spell trouble. Not only is there are danger of them breaking off and hurting someone but they are a clear indication of an ice dam situation. This happens when snow on your roof melts and flows into your gutters. If it is freezing, then ice will form blocking the flow. Water can spill over forming icicles or seep into your roof. When that happens, you’ve got a major water damage cleanup situation on your hand.
