Dealing with Junk Removal through Setting Waste GoalsFebruary 23, 2023
As Hard as It May Seem, Difficult Waste Must be Disposed of ProperlyMarch 10, 2023
Winter is a perfect time to do the small things inside the house that are always ignored because there never seems to be time. Thinking about the attic and basement as examples, these places are hardly ever visited, because in most cases there is no reason to go there. However, much junk and dirt there may be in there, and the best time to do a cleanout is in winter.
While you are at it there may be a few other dark and no-often cleaned spaces that qualify for attention simultaneously, so why not think about them as well? Then the rubbish removal can all be done at once when the cleaning is complete.
There could be a feeling of apprehension building at the thought of what may be lurking up in the attic or down in the basement. They are known to be a bit dingy at the best of times, but this could also be the opportunity to do some running maintenance if needed.
Junk in homes is known to accumulate in a slow buildup until things become cramped and in the process, the cleaning regimes become more difficult. Waste comes in many forms. That old cupboard that is never used or the mattress that has been lying in the basement should be classified as junk, and strictly speaking, if there is no further use for them, they should go.
Using a local waste company like Junk Removal Wirral to assist with rubbish removal is one of the options to deal with unwanted items when doing a cleanout. When the cleanout is complete, a homeowner would want the junk removed as quickly as possible. This is the kind of job for the team at Junk Removal Wirral.
Getting Down to a Household Cleanout
Winter was mentioned as a good time to do the cleanout, and for a good reason as we may be feeling a little housebound and lacking exercise at this time. It could even be snowing outside. The opportunity to tackle a project such as this presents itself now. Get down and do it!
Clean the AtticIt’s always advisable to start at the top and work down. If there is an attic, start there. Winter weather may mean rain or snow, which could result in some additional pressure on the roof. Remembering that this is an opportunity to do some maintenance as well as a household cleanout, tackling them at the same time is advisable.
If the area is dark, some lighting will be necessary. Some help may be needed to move bulky or heavier items out of the space so that the area can be cleaned and inspected for any signs of leaking or rotting taking place. Look out for signs of vermin. The presence of droppings will be the telltale indicator.
Whatever is not required should be removed as junk. Any problems identified can be fixed. Doesn’t this seem a worthy thing to do?
Clean the BasementThere is likely to be more junk in the basement because it’s easier to deposit unwanted items there than haul junk up to an attic. The same procedure will apply to remove, clean, and maintain. In the instance of a basement, the nose is a good indicator of a mouldy smell which would indicate that something needs to be done about pipes or seeping water.
This is quite common in a basement, especially if it isn’t inspected for a while. A small amount of water can cause a lot of damage, so it’s best attended to.
Right by now there is sure to be some junk ready for removal. Look at what is stored in the basement critically and take the time to make bold decisions about the future of the junk that is never used.
Ask a member of the Junk Removal Wirral team for advice on what to do with furniture or appliances that are still useful but could be a bit outdated. Recycling, charities, and garage sales are some of the solutions for what to do with them.
Get to the Small Spaces in the Home
What has been embarked on may be giving a feeling of satisfaction, so why stop there? How about some of those places that also are hiding rarely used things in the house?
Clothes and shoesFashions come and go, but many of us, don’t throw away the old at the same rate as we acquire the new. If this sounds familiar, then how about tackling the clothes cupboards now? Ask whether anyone is likely to wear a particular item again. In fact, the best thing is to try it on and look in the mirror.
That could well bring a smile to the face, because it may not fit, it’s out of style or the colours simply are out of fashion. Do the same with shoes. Only one pair can be worn at a time, and there are sure to be a good number of pairs that haven’t been worn for a year or longer.
Time for them to go. Find a big cardboard box and fold the clothes and place them neatly in the box for waste disposal.
Kitchen cupboardsIt’s surprising what lies at the back of kitchen cupboards. Take a look. Like the clothes, there are utensils hardly used, and foodstuffs that have expired, resulting in space that is filled with items that should not be there.
A kitchen cupboard clearance can take a while, but it’s a very worthy cleanout to do. A kitchen is one place in the home that should be clean because it is where the food and cooking apparatus are. Removing everything from their places and repacking is the way to go. It also provides a good opportunity to do a thorough cleanout.
