Pittsburgh Debris Removal

Pity the poor Pittsburgh weather person. The weather reports are the most popular segments on the local news but that doesn’t mean they are 100% accurate all the time. A perfect example was the last round of storms that swept through the area. We were told to brace for a big one. Instead it was just a piddle of a storm that came and went before anybody got a chance to really notice or even get wet!

“It moved through so quickly,” said meteorologist Brad Rehak, of the National Weather Service. “It wasn’t as heavy. I think the strategy we put in place this afternoon, we prevented a lot of problems we didn’t have to respond to,” he said. “We’re lucky because we have no loss of life.”

The strategy that he mentioned included shutting down a bunch of roads located in flood-prone zones. In the grand scheme of things, it is better to be over prepared than to be caught unawares. If you’ve been spared of flooding in your basement then count yourself lucky. For those not so lucky, there is Junk King Pittsburgh who can help remove and water damaged items before the mold starts growing.

Pittsburgh Old Washing Machine and Dryer Disposal

The hope for every load of laundry we put into a washing machine is for those clothes to come out clean and smelling fresh. For the most part, washing machines get the job done. However, Samsung has designed a different type of washing machine that is taking cleaning clothes to a whole new level. The Silver Nano Washing Machine has a specific goal: eradicate bacteria from linen and clothing used in hospitals. Think of this as a super bacteria killing machine. The inside is lined with silver-coated components that release actual Silver ions while the clothes are tumbling. According to claims made by the company, this process allows for clothing and linens to be 100% “deodorized, sterilized and protected from bacteria for up to 30 days.” That’s great news for hospitals who want to keep it clean. The bad news is that this washing machine is only for commercial use… so far.

What shape is your washer in? If you’re looking to swap out your old machine for a new and improved model you’re going to be very happy with the many advances developments in washing machine design. Today’s machines are using computer technology to help you specify wash cycles and maximize your energy use. Plus it is all touch pad controlled.
