Get Your Trampoline Hauled Away

Some people think that the best way to get rid of something bulky is to put it on the curb or try to sell it at a yard sale? Putting something on the curb rarely works because the thing that is out there is so easily ruined. A yard sale depends on someone actually driving by, stopping and buying what you’re selling. Most often when a yard sale is over, all the stuff that didn’t sell is put on the curb with a “free” sign. Again, that’s not helping. You certainly couldn’t get rid of a trampoline by putting it on the curb. For a job like that you’ll need to bring in the pros from Junk King Phoenix.

Important Trampoline Safety Tips For The Whole Family

A backyard trampoline can provide your family with hours of fun. It’s also great exercise. Anytime you get involved with the physical activity you need to take safety precautions. That is true with a swimming pool, swing set or a backyard trampoline. Here are some important safety tips to keep in mind for your backyard trampoline:

Clear Jumping Space

Bouncing on a trampoline is all about achieving vertical height. This is why you have to be aware of proper placement with your trampoline. There needs to be a clear jumping space above the trampoline. No tree branches or awnings should be within that space.

Clear Perimeter Space

There’s also a distinct possibility that people jumping on the trampoline may fall off the trampoline. That doesn’t automatically mean they’re going to be injured but you will reduce the risk even further by making sure the perimeter space is clear. That means moving away any chairs, toys or gardening tools by at least 10 feet.

Inspect the Trampoline Before Jumping

Before anybody starts jumping, you should make sure the trampoline is completely dry. Even a tiny puddle of water from an overnight storm can cause serious problems for the jumpers. You also want to make sure there’s nothing underneath the trampoline that might be jumped on.

Install Padding

If you haven’t already, you should install the perimeter padding around your trampoline. This will prevent people from falling through the open slots rid of the springs are. Most trampolines come equipped with this padding but if not it is easy to order online. Another precaution would be a safety net around the perimeter. This prevents the jumpers from tumbling off the trampoline.

Supervise

Just as you would with a swimming pool, you need to keep an eye on your jumpers especially the younger ones. No one under the age of five should be jumping on a trampoline. You should only be one jumper at a time. It’s too easy for jumpers to get out of control and knock into each other.

Replace Old Trampoline

If your old trampoline has become torn or the springs are rusty, then you might want to think about replacing the entire unit. This isn’t a challenging task when you hire a company like Junk King Phoenix. Junk King has a lot of experience taking apart backyard playsets. They’ll be able to load up your old trampoline along with the rest of your unwanted yard debris on the same session. It’s a great way to get your yard clean of clutter.

Keep your trampoline jumpers safe this summer. And put Junk King Phoenix to work clearing out the yard clutter. Win/win.
