When Junk Hauling Is A Health Concern

Posted by Junk King on Jul 27, 2020 8:00:00 AM



Almost half a year after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, regular safety precautions are still needed for most activities, including junk hauling.

Fortunately, with the proper equipment and protocols, even junk removal and hauling can be carried out safely and without risk.

Junk Hauling During a Pandemic

In this time of uncertainty, our world is changing by the hour. Right now, the health and safety of our family, friends, neighbors and coworkers is the number one priority. Practicing social distancing and following guidelines from the CDC and WHO is the best we can all do to be responsible members of our community.

Junk King recognized the challenges posed by COVID-19 early on and implemented protocols to minimize risks while ensuring that we would be able to continue offering world-class junk removal services to our valued customers. 

Here’s what we’ve been incorporated into daily operations:



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

These handy containers are driveway friendly, and we simply drop it off and come back three days later to pick it up.

After the Junk Is Gone

If you're planning a major summer cleaning project, getting rid of all the old, broken, and unwanted junk from your home is a great first step. Minimizing the clutter in your house, your garage, and even your backyard and storage spaces is a huge first step. 

When it comes to the actual "cleaning" portion of the job, it's still a good idea to make sanitizing and disinfecting a priority. And what better time to do a "deep clean" than after the junk is gone?

Your home has a wide variety of surfaces, materials, and items where dangerous germs, bacteria and viruses can linger. While the danger of actually having COVID-19 virus in your home is not so great, it is certainly a good idea to eliminate that possibility. 

While this it's not as likely as may think, it is far better to be safe by cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting your home. And we've created this checklist to help with that task.

Decluttering, Cleaning, and Staying Safe

Once the junk and excess clutter has been gotten rid of and you've succeeded in pulling off a major cleaning of your home, it's a good idea to maintain safe cleaning practices to ward off any future instance of coronavirus hanging around. 

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.

And remember: "Cleaning" and "Disinfecting" are not the same thing.

According to these 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 when it comes to professional junk hauling and removal, Junk King offers truly "touchless" junk removal service for both your safety and peace of mind.
