Spring Clean-up for Your Home

Rent a Dumpster

The arrival of spring has everyone thinking about annual cleanup projects, so that households can begin the new year relatively free of clutter and better organized than they were during the winter months. It can be a bit of an overwhelming task, trying to organize and clean up everything on your property, so if you need a few tips on what to do and how to accomplish it, continue reading below. For the biggest cleanup tasks, you can enlist the aid of S&S Waste Services, which is a company that can provide you with rolloff dumpsters that will make cleanup a breeze. For smaller tasks, you’ll just need to be prepared to invest a little time and effort.

Basement cleanout

Some homeowners use their basements as storage areas, accumulating junk and unused materials for years at a time. If this is the year you’re going to commit to cleaning out the basement and making better use of all that area, you should definitely contact S&S Waste Services and have a rolloff dumpster situated outside your home. That will make it easy to just dump everything in the receptacle, and have it hauled away when you’ve cleaned out all the junk from your basement.

Tree trimming

If you have trees and shrubs on your property, springtime is the best time for pruning and trimming, so they can stay shapely and appealing. Many shrubs simply do not grow into attractive shapes all on their own, and require a bit of trimming in order to look their best. Trees are in the same category, especially when they’re young and still forming major branches. You can have a big influence on how those trees and shrubs grow, by doing some timely trimming and pruning during the springtime.

Remodeling projects

Before the heat of summer overtakes you, it’s a good idea to initiate any major remodeling projects you had in mind for the year. Since a remodeled kitchen or bathroom can add tons of value to your home, that might be a project you’d want to undertake this year. If you don’t have the money for a full-blown remodel project, you can still do a facelift for your kitchen by adding new cupboards or countertops. Your bathroom might benefit by having a new glass shower or a new vanity to spruce it up. There are also tons of smaller projects you can do in the spring, for instance painting one or more of the bedrooms in your house. 

Yard cleanup

It’s very easy for branches to become broken off and be sitting in your yard to obstruct your lawn-mowing efforts. The strong winter winds often blow off weaker branches and leave them deposited in your yard until the spring thaws expose them. Those same winds will often blow loose debris into your yard from all over the neighborhood, where you will have to pick it all up in order to clean up your yard. If you’ve left anything out in the yard from winter, now is the time to bring it in and clean up your yard area so it’s ready for mowing, fertilizing, and aerating. Any major throwaway items can be deposited in your rolloff dumpster, and hauled away so your yard looks clean and unobstructed.

Removal of waste, junk, and debris

If you don’t have much in the way of waste, junk, or debris that needs to be cleaned up from winter, then you’re one of the lucky ones, and you might be able to get by just by filling up an outdoor trash bag. But many homeowners find that they have an awful lot of stuff that they no longer need, or which has cluttered up the yard, or which is just plain unwanted junk that needs to go away. Before you get started on clearing away all this refuse, contact S&S Waste Services, so you can conveniently place it all in a handy rolloff dumpster, and have it all carted away, and out of your life.
