Every business and homeowner, from time to time, has the task of junk removal. Stuff that we don’t use keeps piling up. When people want a minimalist lifestyle, they are sensitive as junk accumulates.
Let’s explore how to deal with junk.
1. AVOID CLUTTER
Everyone has junk, but there is no reason for it to be left all over your home or business. Cluttered junk is a problem. Not only does it look unsightly, but it can be a breeding place for germs and bacteria. Keep your junk collected together as you plan for its disposal.
2. CLEAN FURNITURE AND APPLIANCES THAT ARE NO LONGER IN USE
When people replace old furniture and appliances, some people store them where they collect dirt and dust. This is not a smart idea! Even after you stop using them, you need to clean them. By keeping them clean, you make sure they are more appealing when you sell or give them away. More importantly, it keeps your home or business hygienic. Dirty furniture will attract disease if they become dirty. This is particularly dangerous to children and pets who may play on or around them.
3. DON’T GET SICK DUMPING YOUR JUNK
Stuff that you don’t use will pile up. Stuff that piles up will collect dust and attract dog hair, bugs, and more. If you are going to get rid of your junk on your own, be careful not to get sick. For those with allergies and respiratory problems, find a way to ventilate around your pile. A home fan can help blow the dust away from you.
4. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRASH AND TREASURE
Few of us are going to find a hidden treasure in our junk. Don’t expect that just because you have stopped using the stuff, it does not have value to others. If your stuff still works or has a use, sell or donate it to someone in need. When you dump items with a useful life, you are unnecessarily stressing the environment.
5. TOSS OUT ALL GARBAGE
Do not horde stuff that has no value to anyone. It is important to get rid of the trash. This task isn’t easy for everyone as some people get attached to stuff. You know that we have all shuffled those 12” piece of PVC pipe around our garage, expecting that, eventually, we will find a use for them. It is far smarter to give yourself a rule saying that if you haven’t used something for two years, consider it junk. and get rid of it.
