Reduce Allergens with Junk King Sonoma

Spring is here, and most people want to provide much needed love and care to their homes and at the same time get rid of unhealthy and annoying allergens.

It is important to know that sneezing, coughing, wheezing and difficulties in breathing are often caused by allergens. Allergens like dirt, dust, dust mites, pollen and other small particles collect anywhere in the house. They can be found on floors, walls, beds, couches, books, shelves, racks and other surfaces. A buildup of allergens in the house is dangerous as it triggers allergic reactions such as rhinitis and asthma.

The good news is that there is a solution and we at Junk King are here to help. We encourage you to stay safe and give your home a thorough cleaning this spring. It’s the key to a safe and healthy environment and also ensures the house is thoroughly aired, dusted, and washed free from the exposure of allergens.

Allergens Commonly Found in Homes

The key to reducing exposure to indoor allergens and the potential threat they pose highly depend upon knowing and understanding each type.

The most common of them all is dust mites. These are very tiny insects, not visible to the naked eye and can only be seen under microscope. They usually live on surfaces they can firmly be attached to and these include; beddings, carpets, chair seats and other fabric covers. They thrive in humid conditions and even though they can’t be totally eradicated, you can certainly lessen their numbers by spring cleaning.

Pet allergens are found in the saliva, fur and skin of infected pets.  Homeowners with pets sometimes find this allergen throughout the entire home, especially if they don’t conduct regular cleaning. If you don’t have a pet but find yourself affected by this allergen you might have visited a friend who does, as transmission is possible via clothing.

Pest allergens thrive in the excrement, saliva and urine of pests such as, mice and cockroaches. It is important to properly dispose of leftover food in an effort to minimize the intrusion of cockroaches, mice and consequently pest allergens.

Mold allergens. Mold grows on wet surfaces and can be found in either indoor or outdoor areas. In most cases clothing and shoes can be carriers of outdoor mold and often contribute to it’s presence in the home. Mold spores triggers allergic reactions and therefore direct contact and the inhalation of mold should be avoided.

How to keep a Clean Surroundings During Covid 19 and Spring

Over the last few months we have been encouraged to wash our hands and hand sanitize.  Even though this is true to help stem the spread of the corona virus we must also adopt regular cleaning and proper waste disposal practices.

There are several ways to clean during spring and Covid-19. One sure way we want to suggest is to find areas in the home that are frequently touched and sanitize regularly . These include but not limited to: door knobs, light switches, tables and chairs. To eliminate germs and bacteria you can also fill a handheld home-use spray bottle with 70% alcohol and spray thoroughly throughout the entire home at set intervals.

A recent study shows that Covid-19 can survive on surfaces for up to 72 hours.  We at Junk King recommend regular cleaning habits in an effort to decrease the virus’ transmission rate.

Everything You Need to Know About California’s E-waste Recyling Laws

Improper disposal of electronic waste can create serious risks to people, animals, and the environment. Junk King of Sonoma offers safe and secure e waste recycling, removal, and disposal services to make sure you comply with California’s environmental laws.

What is E-waste?

computer cords and motherboardIn California, E-waste refers to any unwanted electronic device or CRT (cathode ray tube) which is classified as “universal waste.” It frequently contains hazardous materials like lead and mercury, and is produced by businesses, households, industries, and governments. As LCD and LED technology for TVs and monitors has for the most part replaced CRTs, the state has enacted AB 1419 for CRT panel glass recycling, an initiative that allows scrap panel glass to be reused in many new products.

E waste Recycling Laws in California

Thanks in large part to SB 20, or the Electronic Waste Recycling Act, California remains the only state that has successfully reined in the illegal disposal of toxic electronics such as TVs, laptops, and computer monitors. Today, half of the e waste that once found its way to landfills or was illegally shipped overseas will be recycled or reused.

There are a number of reporting requirements e waste recycling providers must meet and they must manage e waste in compliance with the Department of Toxic Substances Control’s waste regulations. They are also required to comply with recordkeeping and treatment standards as dictated by state law.

As the electronic waste stream becomes more complex e waste disposal has gotten more complicated, too. The Future of Electronic Waste Management in California project was adopted in 2018 and recommends ways to get the most out of the state’s e waste recycling program.

Junk King of Sonoma is Your E waste Disposal Partner

What Is Responsible Yard Waste Removal?

Garbage Pickup – How to Dispose of Large Volumes of Waste

Most weeks, it’s fairly simple to get rid of trash and debris in your normal garbage pickup. But there are times a special pickup is required and that’s when Junk King of Marin can step in.

Businesses and homeowners alike can require a large volume trash pickup service for a number of reasons:

  • Foreclosures
  • Tenant turnover
  • Inventory cleanout
  • Major spring cleaning or preparing for move or sale
  • Garbage exceeds weight limitations for municipal pickup

Garbage PickupIn Marin County, single-family homeowners get 3 carts for their monthly collection rate: one garbage (or landfill), one recycling, and one compostables. If you need anything over that, you’ll need to pay an increased rate. You’re not permitted to overfill your one allotted cart, either, or you’ll get charged for that, too.

Junk King of Marin offers a great solution for volume trash pickup that saves you the stress and expense of doing it yourself. We’re committed to making large order garbage pickup an easy and pleasant experience for all our customers.

Bulk Item or Regular Garbage?

We’ve all been there. “ Is this garbage considered a bulk item or is it trash?” If you’re not sure, you must call your municipal refuse management department to find out. But chances are good that if you’re questioning whether it can be picked up in your regular trash service, it probably can’t.

When Marin County conducted a waste characterization study, it found less than half of what people put in the garbage belongs there. For many years, people just assumed anything and everything could be put out for trash pickup. It’s just garbage after all, right? But the truth is, it’s regular household trash that goes to incinerators and landfills, but other bulky items and recyclables that are typically part of large volume garbage situations need to be handled in a different way.

The Best Volume Garbage Pickup in Marin

Junk King’s bulk garbage pickup service is an efficient, safe, and eco-friendly way to make the process an easy one for you. We do the heavy lifting, and we make sure your garbage is disposed of according to municipal regulations.

And for businesses that require larger scale garbage pickup on a regular basis, Junk King of Marin can help with that, too!

Our friendly and experienced teams are known for their high work ethic and dedication to community. They respect you and your property, show up when they say they will, and are fully licensed and insured. Why wouldn’t you want to use them for your large volume garbage pickup?
