Treasures have Financial, Historical or Sentimental Value
Anyone who watches television shows about hoarding understands there is a difference between collecting treasures and collecting trash. Most individuals have a few treasures such as photograph albums, family heirlooms and mementoes in their home. When someone values an item such as a figurine, stamp collection or sports memorabilia, it is cared for by placing it in protective storage inside a cabinet or on a bookshelf. If someone lives in a smaller home, they might wrap a treasure carefully before storing it in a sturdy box or plastic container. When someone visits a home with treasures, they are able to see the items on display. Treasures are kept clean by washing, dusting or covering the item. In many cases, a treasure has financial, historical or sentimental value for its owner.
Trash is Dirty or Decomposing
On the other hand, trash has no historical or financial value and is often torn, dirty or decomposing. Occasionally, people get confused about what is a valuable treasure inside or outside their home and what is trash that requires disposal with the assistance of a junk removal company. When a major life change occurs such as a family member moving, a spouse passing away or a new baby arriving, an individual may need to make big changes in a home’s environment. This is when someone must think about the differences between trash and treasure in order to have items hauled away by a professional junk removal team.
