Mattress Recycling Brings a Greener Tomorrow

Mattress Recycling Brings a Greener Tomorrow Junk King Sonoma CountyLiving a green lifestyle often means repairing old items and holding onto them for as long as you possibly can. One big exception: your mattress. For your health and comfort, you really need to replace your mattress about every five years or whenever it starts to wear out. Mattress recycling lets you say goodbye to the old mattress without worrying about environmental harm.

Junk King offers mattress recycling as part of our eco-friendly commitment that applies to all our junk hauling services. Mattress construction includes many different kinds of materials, which means recycling is not really an option for the average consumer. We make sure your old mattress gets broken down and separated into recyclable parts and non-recyclable components get disposed of responsibly.

  • Fabrics and fiber fill: Whether cotton, polypropylene or other materials, fabrics can be stripped away and recycled into new textiles as part of the mattress recycling process.
  • Metal springs: Most mattresses have steel springs, which can be melted down and repurposed.
  • Foam: Mattress foam can be plant-based or synthetic. Either way, the right mattress recycling facility can process and recycle these materials.
  • Wood: Frame materials get scrapped or chipped and recycled into other products to prevent unnecessary deforestation.

The mattress recycling process requires special machinery to tear apart the pieces and sort the different materials. Some mattress recyclers can repurpose as much as 90% of the materials.

Mattress Recycling: An Earth-Friendly Solution

Mattresses should never go to landfills because they take up so much space — the springs and foam prevent the mattress from compacting like other trash. The materials can be especially hazardous to the earth, too. Metals and petroleum-based fabrics leach toxins into the soil and water, so these items should be recycled rather than thrown away.

When you choose mattress recycling, the entire mattress gets taken apart. The recyclable materials get recycled, and the non-recyclable parts can be disposed of with minimal impact on the environment.

With Junk King, you get an easy, hands-free solution for mattress recycling. You don’t have to burn fuel driving your mattress to a special location. Our team will simply pick it up — on your schedule — anywhere around the Sonoma and Marin area. We’ll drop it off at a San Francisco area mattress recycling facility, and you can start shopping for a new eco-friendly mattress!

Stop waking up to a sore back and get rid of your old mattress — make an appointment with Junk King for pick-up and mattress recycling.

High Risk of Disease with Improper Junk Removal

The tough labor of junk removal brings a variety of health risks. An amateur can easily slice a finger, pinch a nerve, or throw out a back muscle. When dust, mold, and germs are involved, junk removal can also bring a high risk of serious illness or disease.

Junk removal professionals can safely handle garbage and debris so you don’t have to put yourself, your family, or your friends at risk. Be especially careful about clearing out trash from areas that may have trapped germs waiting to be kicked up:

  • Non-air conditioned rooms where moisture may have accumulated
  • Attic, garage, and storage rooms
  • Anywhere that pets or rodents may have urinated or defecated
  • Carpeted kitchens and bathrooms
  • Rental properties or storage units — you don’t know what others have left behind!

Can you really get sick from junk removal?

High Risk of Disease with Improper Junk Removal Junk King SonomaAnybody runs a risk of mild to severe illness if exposed to mold, germs, and other pathogens when clearing out old junk. If you have asthma or allergy problems, you are especially in danger. But even a perfectly healthy person can catch a disease from attempting junk removal.

Toxic mold exposure can lead to lung infections, skin infections, and other problems. You might get sick with cold-like symptoms for a few days — or you might end up in the emergency room.

In other cases, viruses and bacteria may be lingering under piles of garbage, under carpeting, in old cardboard boxes, or otherwise out of sight. When the junk removal process begins, these microorganisms may be activated and spread throughout the air.

Expert junk removal can prevent illness

Protect yourself and your loved ones — let a junk removal expert take care of things!

When you have a room, attic, or entire building to clear out, here’s what you should know:

  • Don’t attempt to move mysterious piles of debris. Watch out for items in places where moisture might collect. Soggy, buckled cardboard storage boxes may have mold on the bottom, for example.
  • Wear safety gloves and air filtration masks when cleaning or organizing areas that may contain mildew or germs.
  • Open windows and ventilate rooms when doing your spring cleaning.
  • Better safe than sorry! You can schedule an appointment with Junk King and all you have to do is point to the junk you want hauled away.

Save yourself the risk! Avoid allergic reactions, serious diseases, and expensive hospital visits. When you need junk removal that involves clearing out storage spaces and other areas where germs collect, let the experts at Junk King handle the mess with all the right tools and techniques to get the job done safely.

Sonoma Mattress Disposal

Sonoma mattress disposalWhen it comes to having a great day or a blah day it could all come down to how you spent the night. In other words, did you get a good night’s sleep? Sleep is one of those things we all share. It’s part of our physiology. Without good sleep we can become irritable, lose focus and be sluggish all day long. That’s not good for anyone. There are many factors which could be standing between you and a decent sleep. The first thing you should look at is environmental. In other words, are you sleeping on the right mattress?

You could be on your current mattress for so long that you don’t even realize it is keeping you from falling to sleep. Consider the age of your mattress. If it is over five years old you’re heading into the danger zone. A mattress older than eight years old definitely has worn out its usefulness. Beyond that you really need to think about getting a new bed!

Since you’re going to be spending a lot of time on your new mattress you want to make sure you get the right one. Sure you can do a lot of research on line (as you should!) before heading out to the showroom but nothing is going to beat testing out the mattress. Don’t just sit on the edge and bounce up and down. Lay down as you would if you were falling asleep and stay there for at least ten minutes. That might seem like a long time to be on a mattress in a store but don’t feel embarrassed. Instead, feel relieve that you’re being a smart shopper.

Even with a mattress that feels great there could be problems adjusting. You should make sure there is a full return policy at the story up to at least 30 days. It’s going to take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to the new mattress. After three weeks if you’re still having a rough go it might be time to make the switch again.

Before you can try out that new mattress you want to make sure to get rid of the old one. Junk King Sonoma can be there for the assist! Mattresses are among the most popular item that Junk King picks up. That’s because most people think they need to hold onto a mattress so it goes into the garage or basement. All it takes is one brush with dampness and that mattress is shot. Instead of hanging onto it, let Junk King Sonoma haul it away. They can also haul off the rest of your junk leaving you with a clean house. That’s going to help you sleep for sure!
