Nashville Carpet Disposal and Recycling

Unless you live in a museum, here’s the thing about your carpets: they’re going to get stained. There is simply no way to avoid the occasional spill and if you’ve got a dog or cat, forget about it! When a stain or spill happens, don’t panic. It’s important that you treat it as quickly as possible but treat it the right way. The first phase could be with rubbing alcohol on a white cloth used to dab at the spot to lift up as much as possible. Then to get in deep, mix 1/4 cup of water with 3/4 household vinegar. Spray the stain and let it sit for a few moments then use the same mixture to dab up the cloth.

For a more stubborn stain, wrap a bar of Ivory Soap in a wet cloth. Club soda will also do in a pinch. The same with hydrogen peroxide or household ammonia. Just be careful with colored carpet. You can test an area that is under a piece of furniture first to make sure it won’t harm the color. The other thing to keep in mind with a stain is that you want to blot as opposed to scrub. Scrubbing can tend to drive the stain in deeper.

There may come a time that no amount of cleaning will be enough for a carpet. That’s when you’ll be looking to replace the rugs with brand new carpeting. If it’s been a while since you went shopping for new carpet, you might be surprised to find that a lot of the new designs are also stain resistant. This means they’re going to last longer which makes new carpeting a good investment.

You can save on the installation by having your own carpet removed by Junk King Nashville. Rolled up carpets is something that definitely needs to be hauled away on the back of a truck. It’s also the kind of job that a Junk King crew will be able to handle without breaking a sweat.

While Junk King is taking away your carpet, they can also load up their truck with all those other items you want tossed out. A new carpet could also be the perfect excuse for new furniture, which means you need to find somewhere to toss all of that old furniture so that it doesn’t take up valuable space in your home.

When Junk King Nashville takes away furniture they don’t just dump it in a landfill. Instead, they’ll find a charity that can fix it up and resell it or make sure it ends up broken down and at the proper recycling facility. That should make you feel pretty good about getting rid of your stuff. Of course, you don’t have to wait for new carpet to put Junk King to work. They’ll clear out your clutter whenever you’re ready!

Nashville Stove Removal

How old is your stove? It’s a legitimate question especially if you’ve been noticing that it’s not quite working as it once did. Just like every other major kitchen appliance your stove will wear down over time. If you’re in the market for a new stove you might have a hard time finding a store that actually sells them. This is crucial because you want to make sure if you buy a stove with a warranty that the store you buy it from is going to be around long enough to service your appliance.

Since you’re buying new, you get to pick from a wide array of features. Do you know how a self-cleaning oven works? That means the stove has the ability to blast the oven with a burst of extremely high heat that reduces any type of residue to a pile of ash. You still have to wipe up the ash when the oven cools off. It’s not like a little robot shows up to do the job. You might be better off cleaning the stove the old-fashioned way as opposed to paying for a feature that isn’t all that big of deal to begin with.

A convection oven will come with a steeper price tag but if you do a lot of cooking this might be a terrific upgrade. With the convention oven you’ll see a fan or two as part of the design. Those fans allow for the heat to be circulated during the cooking process. This in turn makes for a more even cooking experience. It also cooks food a lot faster so you might have to adjust your recipes.

When it comes to clean up, you just can’t beat a smooth top range. The heating units are kept under a ceramic top and clean up is as easy as wiping down with a sponge. The only drawback with a ceramic stovetop is that is scratches rather easily. This means you probably couldn’t use cast iron cookware unless you want your surface all scuffed up. Coil burners are another way to go but these are extremely difficult to keep clean and the coils will eventually have to be replaced.

As for stove finishes, you’ll have the chance to spice things up with a bold color like red or black. Just think about what the rest of your kitchen looks like. You don’t want a single appliance standing out like a sore thumb.

When you’re ready to swap out the old stove for the new, make sure you’ve got Junk King Nashville on standby alert. These are Nashville’s professional junk haulers who will be able to take away your stove and any other bulky item you want to toss out, and get rid of it in an eco-friendly and responsible manner.  Plan it right and you can have the old stove taken out in the morning and the new stove brought in at night without skipping a beat.  That’s the promise with Junk King Nashville – efficient and eco-friendly hauling to make your life easier, and clutter free.
