Where did the summer go? That’s the question on everyone’s mind as fall creeps up and winter is right around the corner. Will you be ready for the cold weather? There are many simple tips you can take towards winterizing your home that can save a lot on your heating bills. One of the easiest is to place a rolled up towel at the bottom of your front door. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, drafts like those under your door can waste up to 30% of your home heating energy. Now, you can get fancy with these draft stoppers by ordering up a “draft snake” or make your own using sand or kitty litter as a filler. The key is to make sure it covers the entire width of the door frame and is easy to push aside. Along with this door draft blocker, you should also make sure all your windows are properly insulated. Perhaps it’s time for some fresh caulking along the frame.

You should also be swapping out your furnace filters for better heating efficiency. These should be on the same replacement schedule as your smoke detector batteries which is every six months or whenever we change the clocks. If you have ceiling fans, you probably have been running them counterclockwise to catch the cool breeze. During the winter flip the fans to clockwise and you can circulate the warm air that collects at your ceiling. Remember hot air rises so let the fan push it back down! If you have an AC wall unit, you’ll want to make sure that you collect any pooled water that has accumulated in the unit or tubes. This will prevent freezing which could damage the unit.

Do you know what your water heater temperature is set at? The default for most of these units is 140 degrees but that’s too hot to use. If you dial it back to 120 degrees you’ll be adding up even more energy savings.

Not all of your winterizing should be relegated to the inside of your homes. Before the storms start rolling in you should cover up your patio furniture and grill. You’ll also want to make sure your rain gutters are cleared out from fallen leaves. This is one of those homeowner chores you simply can’t avoid! Fortunately, you have a willing partner standing by in the form of Junk King of Sacramento.

Sacramento Junk Pickup – Items Around Your House

The late, great comedian George Carlin once did a routine about phrases you never hear. One of the funniest was, “hand me the piano.” Obviously, you can’t pass a piano around like a salt shaker. That is probably the number one reason why people hold onto their junk: it’s just too big or bulky to move on their own.

At some point, you’re going to say enough is enough. When the day comes when you want to empty your house of unwanted stuff, it will be time to call in a professional Sacramento junk pickup crew like Junk King Sacramento. They’ll have the man power and the equipment to take away whatever you want. Look through this list of potential junk items and think about how many of these you have around your Sacramento home.

–  Old Furniture: This can mean many things for many people. The top of the list would be worn out sofas that might have been shoved out to the back porch or down into the basement. That’s usually as far as these items go because of their size and bulk. Added to this item can be recliner chairs that have seen better days, collapsing tables, broken chairs, chests of drawers that are forever stuck and old baby furniture that no baby would ever want again.
– Kitchen Appliances: Like that old sofa, when a stove or dishwasher is busted beyond repair it often gets unhooked and dragged out to the garage. That’s where it sits until you move away. You could also have a broken freezer or washer/dryer unit. Anything that needs a dolly to be moved could fall into this category.
– Auto Parts: If you live with a tinkerer, then it’s a good bet that you have some parts to an unfinished car engine sitting around. “I can do something with that someday,” is a typical response when asked to get rid of the rusty heap. Along with engine parts there might be fenders, rims, tires and even entire backseats that could all make their way onto the junk heap if someone else was doing the heavy lifting.
– Construction Debris: A recent remodeling project could have left behind a veritable mound of junk like wood scraps, drywall or plaster chunks. Not to mention whatever junk you created with the demolition before the project. If your contractor didn’t take this away, then you’re stuck with it. Nothing good will come from this pile.
– Yard Waste: Just because the junk pickup crew is going to take away the stuff you don’t want any more doesn’t mean they can’t take away the stuff you never wanted. This could be fallen tree limbs, dead bushes or piles of unused sod. It’s amazing what one backyard can collect after a fierce storm. Do you have a pile of yard waste debris that’s good to go?

As the saying goes, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. The addition to that is sometimes junk will always be junk. Get it out of your life once and for all by calling in a local based Sacramento junk pickup team like Junk King Sacramento at 1-888-888-JUNK.

Sacramento Yard Waste Removal

There is a local law on the books in Sacramento that concerned citizens are working hard to overturn. This is the law that bans backyard chicken coops. The recent egg salmonella recall has made everyone jittery about where their eggs are coming from. There can be no better source then from your own chickens. Unfortunately, it is illegal to have chickens in your backyard in Sacramento. But that could change with the next legislature session. If that law does change, how quick can you put up a coop? It might mean clearing out some room in your backyard. With a project like that, you’re surely going to need the help of a local Sacramento yard waste removal crew you help you clear out the yard and make room for the chicks.

Suppose you don’t want to wait for the law to change but are still concerned about where your family’s food is coming from? Starting your own vegetable garden is a great way to insure you can eat organic and fresh veggies all the time, especially in California. Just like clearing space for that potential chicken coop, you’ll probably have to clear a lot more for a decent sized garden in your yard.  If you’ve got a yard of grass this will be easy, although a bit sweat inducing. You just need to map out your plot of garden and start digging. All the sod you’ll be removing will need to be hauled away. That’s where a yard waste removal company can step up to the plate and take it all away in one trip.

Maybe your backyard is more cement patio than lawn. Once again, it might be labor intensive but you can break up that patio and make room for fresh, enriched soil. With a yard waste removal team standing by, they can get rid of all that broken up cement and let you get to the fun of planting. Not only will the yard waste removal crew have the right size truck to haul away all that cement but they’ll know where to dump it. This could even end up as recycled material which means your old patio can be somebody else’s new foundation.

Of all waste removal projects, yard waste might just be the most problematic. The reason is simple: all that dirt. If you want to get rid of an old sofa, you can borrow a friend’s pick-up and take it away. But will that same friend let you fill up the bed of their pick-up with dirt, leaves and grass? Probably not. Don’t worry, a Sacramento yard waste removal company knows all about dirt and isn’t afraid to get their own trucks messed up in the name of good work.

Hiring a professional work crew means you can relax by having workers come into your backyard. There is no reason to wonder where this crew is from when you hire a company that is licensed and bonded. They will have a reputation to stand on and will handle your yard waste removal with efficiency.

Junk King Sacramento can help out with your yard waste removal needs in an eco-friendly and efficient manner.  Call 1-888-888-JUNK or schedule an appointment online today.

Sacramento Hauling: Inside and Outside Junk

The PBS series “Antique Roadshow”  has been a very popular hit among Sacramento antique collectors and curious minds of all kind. We’d all like to think we have a treasure hidden within our junk. Sometimes there actually is a genuine prize lurking in the closet or basement. Recent participants on “Antique Roadshow” have discovered paintings valued at over $500,000 and a jade collection worth over $1,000,000. Of course, those are the rarities. We all know that most of the junk we have sitting around our house is really, well, junk. As much as we’d like to discover a pot of gold, what we really should be doing is calling in a team of professional junk haulers to get rid of it all.

Most of our garbage falls into two categories: inside junk or outside junk. The inside junk is every piece of furniture, every appliance, every box that we’re not using and will never use. If you’re lucky to have a house with kids heading off to college, then you know what they’ve left behind are some stained carpets, dirty sofas and nasty futons. They should all be tossed out. Inside junk can also be whatever you have piled up on shelves, inside closets or crammed into attics that you’ve always meant to get rid of but never got around to.

Outside junk are all the things that have sprung up around your yard, garage or porch. An old stove that broke down became inside junk but the minute you shoved it out onto the back porch it became outside junk. There are also all kinds of yard waste that can be taken away. Things like broken bird baths, dead bushes, leftover building materials, car parts and anything else you’ve got piled up around the outside of your home.

Of course, junk is junk to a moving crew. All you have to do is point to the items you want gone and gone they shall be. You could even slap on Post-it notes to everything that is scheduled for removal.

What’s great about hiring a Sacramento hauling company is that it’s really going to force you to go through your entire house to see what you can get rid of. After all, this might be your only shot at having professional movers coming over to get rid of garbage. Don’t be afraid to put them to work! It’s what they live for.

The other aspect to consider with getting rid of your junk is exactly where will it end up? Sacramento has a long standing reputation as a clean city. It got that way thanks to citizens who care enough not to dump their garbage anywhere. It’s also a leading recycling city. Your junk should be treated no different than your old newspapers and plastic bottles: have it recycled. Any junk hauling company doing business in Sacramento has to be “green.” They might not be able to have all of your items recycled but it’s making the effort that really counts. Even if just half of your junk can avoid the landfill, that’s going to be a major accomplishment. Speaking of accomplishments, think of all the fun you’re going to have with a clean backyard and wide open storage space? The sky is the limit!
