Getting your house and your property ready for the winter weather is one of the more challenging tasks for many homeowner. Especially since, in many parts of the country, this means getting for some brutal weather that brings heavy snow and long freezes.
Summer is a season for getting outside and enjoying the outdoors. It’s a time for fun activities and family outings. But it can also be a time of unexpected injuries, unfortunate encounters with the elements, and spoiled adventures.
Playing it safe for the summer is the key to enjoying the season to the fullest. And that means knowing in advance what to do, what to watch for, and what to avoid. While you can’t prevent every accident, illness, unpleasant event, or every insect bite, you can certainly take steps to minimize them.
Getting rid of old appliances can be a huge chore. And your kitchen stove or oven can be some of the worst to deal with. But if you're upgrading to new appliances, what do you do with the old ones?
Imagine you are trying to lift your kitchen oven. Even if you could get your arms around it, how much weight are we talking about? Well, according to one source, the average 24 to 30 inch convection oven weighs about 130 pounds. And a double convection oven can weigh much over double that!
So you've finished your spring cleaning project, gotten rid of clothes and other stuff, and you're ready to redecorate. But how do you get rid of old furniture?

If you've been paying to keep your excess belongings in a self-storage unit month after month for years, you just might need some junk removal done.
Sometimes it might seem easier to just to just forget what's in there, abandon the storage unit, and stop paying the rent. However, this is certainly not the best - nor legal - option. Unfortunately, when that does happen, and storage facility managers discover that items have been left behind by old tenants, the task of getting everything removed and hauled away usually falls on them.
Most people think of their yard or garage at home when they think of 'spring cleaning.' But businesses can benefit from spring cleaning, as well.
Spring is here again and homeowners traditionally launch into their spring cleaning projects now that the weather is better. But, not only is spring a great time for cleaning up your home, it's a great time to clean up your office or place of business.
If you’ve been doing some spring cleaning you probably have piles of excess stuff, junk and things you just don’t want or need. But junk removal can be more than just simply throwing everything away.
Spring is a great time of year to replace your old appliances and update your kitchen and laundry room. But what do you do with your old machines? You could junk them, but there's a better option.
Once you've replaced your old, worn out or outdated appliances, you have to decide what to do with your old machines. Some retailers will take them for you, but you are likely to be stuck with disposing of them yourself.
So what does recycling have to do with cleaning your yard and landscaping? Aside from new life as mulch for your trimmings, it can mean new life for old tools and equipment.
It's getting close to spring and there is more to "spring cleaning" than just sprucing up the inside of your home. As a homeowner, you will always be investing in your house and, most often, your yard and landscaping. And these means that having the proper tools and equipment is essential.
