Get Rid of Basement Junk in Sacramento

On any given day you might find dozens of folks running the stairs over at Hughes Stadium or the Sacramento City College Stadium. They’re not looking for the best seats for the next big game. Instead, they’re indulging in a perfect workout routine: running stairs. Going up and down stairs has long been considered a great way to get in a little extra exercise. If you don’t believe that stair climbing is a good exercise then why does every gym have a Stair Master machine? If you have the opportunity at your workplace, you’ll probably a lot better off taking the stairs every day than the elevator. Of course, this is not meant to sky scrapers!

For the dedicated stair runners, nothing beats those athletic stadiums for a good work out. Naturally, you don’t have to head outdoors to get a good stair workout; not when you’ve got a perfectly good flight of treads in your own home. While it might not seem like you’re working out by climbing up and down your stairs, you’re actually giving your heart a chance to pump more blood and oxygen throughout your body which is a good thing any time of the day.

For the serious stair workout, you could add some ankle weights or carry small dumbbells. All of this is meant to strengthen your muscles and keep you in good health. However, there is a time when taking the stairs might not be so much fun and that’s when you’ve got to clean out your basement of all your junk. Yes, its easy going down stairs with an arm full of stuff, but it’s that climb back up that is where you’ll feel the “burn.” This is often why our basements become overflowed with junk: we just don’t want to carry anything back up the stairs.

If you’re finally ready to reclaim your basement and get rid of the junk then you can hire a team of professional junk haulers like Junk King Sacramento to help you accomplish this mission. These junk haulers won’t have any trouble taking the stairs. In fact, they do this every day. If there were ever an Olympic event in stair climbing, the professional junk haulers would surely bring home the gold!

Whether they need 2 trips or 2 dozen, their goal is to help you get rid of all that basement junk once and for all. In some extreme cases, a new home owner could inherit basement junk from the previous owner because they never had the means of moving it out. (Pass me the piano?). That’s when you really need to take charge and take back your basement. If you can get rid of all that junk there is not telling what you can do in that space. Between a bedroom for a teen or a home theatre for the whole family, you can turn your basement into something practical. And yes, you’ll still be able to work out on the stairs!

Sacramento Spring Junk Removal

Let’s cut right to the chase: it’s spring in Sacramento and it’s time for you to get cleaning! We’re not talking about the light dusting or occasional countertop wipe down but instead that once a year complete cleaning that leaves your house sparkling like new. As you approach this year’s spring cleaning mission here are some helpful hints that you might not have considered.

If you have stainless steel in your kitchen it’s recommended that you use a light mist of a wax-based aerosol spray on the surface. This would be the same type of spray that you would use on your wooden furniture. The key is not to put on a heavy coat and to wipe it down with a lint free cloth. You never want to use anything that’s abrasive on stainless steel because that could ruin the surface.

Tackling the organization of your closets is another item on most folk’s spring cleaning to do list. Just for fun this year why not organize your clothes by color? This way you can create a kind of wardrobe rainbow that can give you instant access to those articles of clothing that appeal to you on any given day. Organizing your closet like this will also help reduce the time you spent rushing to find something to wear what you’re running late to work.

If you plan on washing your walls all you really need is a sponge or cloth and some warm water. You don’t need cleaning products for your walls unless there is a stain. If that’s the case then try using a little dishwashing liquid. If you have carpets it’s recommended to give them a quick vacuum every day. The ideal vacuum would be one that incorporates HEPA filters which helps clean the air of dust particles. You have to make sure you change out those filters before they get clogged up. You should also always wear socks when walking on carpeted rooms. This is because the natural oils on the skin of your bare feet can transfer dirt to the carpet.

Spring cleaning is a great time to also organize your bookshelves. Start with taking all the books down and wiping the shelves. When you replace them switch up the book stacking by going horizontal and vertical. It will give your collection a stylish and unique look.

Moving through each home in your house with this type of thorough cleaning could have you discovering a lot of items that should be destined for the junk pile.
