Colds, Flu, COVID-19, And Household Waste

Posted by Junk King on Nov 9, 2020 8:00:00 AM



As we enter the traditional cold and flu season, it is apparent that we are still dealing with the impact of the coronavirus COVID-19, as well. 

Fortunately, life goes on for most all of us and some of our daily tasks involve cleaning and junk removal. 

Junk Hauling and COVID-19

From the start, Junk King recognized the challenges posed by COVID-19. As a result, we created and implemented protocols to minimize risks as we continued to provide superior junk removal services to our valued customers. 

Today, Junk King continues to offer truly "touchless" junk removal service for both your safety and peace of mind.

Here’s what we have incorporated into daily operations:



We'll maintain a 6-foot distance from every customer. Our haulers can pick up curbside, never entering your home.

Cleaning Up After Your Junk Removal

As you go into the winter months it's always a great idea to take the time to clear out all of your household junk and trash items, including anything left out in your yards or garage that really needs to go. 

Once the junk and excess clutter has been gotten rid of, it's a good idea to do some major cleaning. 

If someone at home has been sick or even tested positive for COVID-19, then it's essential to maintain a clean and disinfected environment.

"Cleaning" and "Disinfecting" are not the same thing according to the CDC's definitions:

Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.

Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.

When it comes to your home, the focus is really on simply cleaning and then disinfecting and, while this it's not as likely as may think, it is a good idea to be safer by cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting your home.

To help with that we've created this checklist:
