Junk can cause pest problems
When you have junk gathered in your yard, it can cause problems with different types of pests, depending on where you live and the type of junk you have in your yard. For example, black widows like places like in thick brush and in piles of trash. Black widows are venomous spiders, and you don't want to invite them to your yard with thick brush and piles of trash and junk. Also, rodents will be drawn to trash not only as a source of food but also for materials they can use to build a nest nearby, which may mean in your garage or in your home.
Some piles of junk can increase the chances of a fire
If you have junk piles in your yard, then you may also be increasing the chances of your yard catching fire and that fire can then spread to your home. Old cardboard, piles of dead brush, and papers can all act as kindling for hot ashes that land in your yard from a nearby wildfire or even from a nearby bonfire. Even glass that's in the pile of junk can magnify the sun and start a fire in rare cases.
Junk piles can cause property values to go down
If you have a lot of junk in your yard, then your neighbors may take a hit on their homes when they sell. Their homes may appraise for less because of the condition of your yard. Once their homes sell for less, then your own will be worth less money when you have it appraised, even if you have cleaned up all of the junk by that time. This is due to the fact that your home's value will go off of what the other homes near you sold for, and since all the junk in your yard brought their home's value down, theirs will end up bringing yours down. These are some reasons why you really should contact a junk removal service as soon as you are able to.Share
