For any homeowner looking to clean up, junk removal is an unpleasant and yet necessary chore. However, there are concrete reasons you should consider such an environment changing service. You may not know all the safety hazards, convenience blockages, and pest problems that the mess of junk can bring, but know when you’ve finally reached the need for a cleanout: read this guide. Whether you decide to take the task for yourself or through a professional, here are three simple signs that it’s time for a junk removal cleanout.
Junk Removal: The Three Signs
Like any chore, there are good, specific reasons that junk removal is an essential service for many homeowners. Explore some of the most common reasons below: safety, convenience, and other problems.
Your Home Has A Safety Hazard
The first sign you should look for junk removal at your home is because areas are becoming safety hazards. Not only does a ton of clutter in and around your home make it more unpleasant to look at, but it can pose a serious danger to you and your family. As things pile up around you, you are just a fall, accident, or project away from serious injury. Then, there is the possibility that you introduce an invisible threat to your environment through the junk. Additionally, with large amounts of junk piled up, there is a lot more risk for mold and mildew (such as Stachybotrys, Cladosporium) to be growing or attracting pests of all sorts and types.
The Junk Becomes A Gloomy Inconvenience
The second sign you can notice is when the junk becomes an inconvenience to you and your family through obstructing pathways and creating obstacles. If you find yourself constantly having to move things around in the house just to get where you need to, it’s time to call for help. The home and yard should be places of relaxation and enjoyment rather than constant work and cluttered claustrophobia. Junk taking up a lot of room can also give off a gloomy and unattractive look to any guests. You won’t be having anyone over anytime soon if you don’t care for your spaces in the way that ordinary taste demands.
There Are Pest Infestations And Other Problems
The third sign you’re in desperate need of junk removal services is if you are having pest infestations or problems. Pests are naturally attracted to areas that have any source of food, making areas where things are generally left around a prime target. Roaches love hiding in cardboard for food and safety. Wet cardboard puts off a scent that cockroaches know will make them hydrated from consuming. Wasp nests are hiding around old sheds or splinters from decaying wood. Areas of junk create perfect living spaces for pests (such as ants or rats) to invade your home and live under the radar hidden away from you. Cleaning up these areas will not only be the first step in keeping these pests out of your home but also in treating your home for these pests if you do find out you have any.
