Thinning the herd

Post by milspec6 on Fri Feb 19, 2016 12:41 pm

I was trying to de-clutter the house to make room for some studio improvements and found that I just have too much stuff that I rarely use. Everything from flood damage work (dehu units, air movers, testing devices, etc) to cleaning have piled up too much. Heck, I have an entire bedroom full of filters for some Abatement Technologies 2K machines alone!! Seriously, the entire room is all boxes up to 5 feet high since I stopped doing much mold work.

I can put a full list up if anyone is interested, but here are some of the key items:

Steamin Demon Classic with 300 ft of hose, new pump, new vac motor.
(2) Phoenix SS Dehu units
(4) Abatement Tech. 2k Bull-dog negative air machines (2 are brand new)
A boat load of filters for the above units
An older Abatment Tech all SS Hepa Machine
Many moisture detection devices, air samplers, etc.
Hydramaster RX20 with recent over-haul and new vac shoes

I'm still pushing boxes out of the way, so the item list will continue to grow.

Those 2k machines are like firing up a turbo jet, they are powerful. I used one to blow all the drywall dust out of my garage that I finished...it threw drywall dust 3/4 of the way down the driveway when I turned it on. Razz

I don't know how it always happens, but it starts with a few cases of chemicals that you haven't used in 5 years, but can't force yourself to throw it out.

My next house will be tiny. A tiny house forces you to be more selective on what stays and what goes. Geez, I found 4 tubs of unopened butter in the back of fridge as well.....how the hell does that happen?

Time for roll-off dumpster or a kitchen fire....

Just to be clear, in the event my house burns down due to a kitchen fire, I wasn't serious. Cool

You want to de-clutter? Move. The last time I moved I filled a uhaul truck full of stuff that I took to the dump or donated

I used to move every 5 years for that very reason Mo, but I have been here for 10 now.

I don't know how I survived all those years living out a back pack and sea bag....it wouldn't hold the stuff in my car's trunk these days.

I'll take the butter. Any peanut butter?
Every 5 years?! I've been here close to 20; not, I repeat, not looking forward to moving later this year into our new house. Stuff is just going to magically disappear over the next few months. "Honey, what happened to the....?, IDK!

I just bought my wife a new car a couple of months ago, my garage which is my office is hijacked by that car, so I can't buy any more stuffs, sorry Rob.
I would list them on Craigslist and don't take any offers from Nigeria or Indonesia and you should be fine Razz

Your office is in your garage? Shocked

Oh that's right, it doesn't get cold out there....you would end up frozen to the cement floor around here.

Lol Rob, thanks Very Happy
She already has a rule of no drinking and eating in the new car, don't know how long that lasts, hopefully not that long cause I already cheated a couple of times, ssshhhh Twisted Evil
I figured by having an office in the garage, I get to have a good amount of deduction for some areas in the house that I use for business purposes.

Thanks Matt.

There is always someone looking for a Demon extractor as they are small yet very effective machines. I cleaned for almost 2 years with them and always had great results.

They only had a couple of flaws: They cost way too much when new. It can be difficult to market yourself; They were useless for stairs; and they didn't use water any hotter than about 120 degrees.

The heat, you could get around. The marketing, you could get around. The cost, you could get around with used machines. What you couldn't get around were the stairs.....you had to have another piece of equipment for that one.
