Richmond VA Basement Junk Removal

basementAlong the Virginia coast sea levels are rising. The result is that even the mildest of rainstorms can turn into serious trouble for homeowners and business in the “danger zone.”

“At times I think we get too locked in on the strongest storms, the Category 3, 4 and 5s,” said Marshall Shepherd, a University of Georgia atmospheric scientist. “But if you look at the last five or 10 years, even the weaker storms can create a lot more damage.”

The scientists who study these kinds of things have found that in the past, the sea level rose about a foot every hundred years. Now it appears those levels are in track to rise two feet every hundred of years. That might not seem like a lot when you spread out a “foot” over that length of time but it really only takes a couple of inches of flooding to ruin your basement. If you should find yourself on the receiving end of floodwaters, know that you won’t be alone when it comes time for the cleanup. Junk King of Central Virginia will be standing by to lend a hand.

Midlothian Furniture Removal

There are four key pieces of furniture that every home should have. They are a sofa, dining table with chairs, bed and mattress. Those are the four pieces you don’t want to mess around with in terms of buying quality. That’s because they will be used the most often in your home. It might be different if you have young kids but even grownups can benefit from furniture that is long lasting and stain resistant!

Typically, a good sofa should last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. If your couch is past its prime, it might be time to start looking for a new model. You might also want to rethink where your couch is situated. If it is in direct sunlight from windows, that could contribute to the fabrics fading or the leather cracking. You should also be vacuuming your coach as often as you vacuum your floors. This means under the cushions. If you have wooden legs make sure you keep them polished. Of course, these tips are probably better suited for a new sofa. It might be too late for your current couch! You might be able to extend the life of your sofa by reupholstering the piece. However, consider the costs. For just a few dollars more you can get a brand new sofa that will last even longer.
