Fall Home Cleaning Guide | 10 and 15-yard Dumpsters For Home Cleanout Projects
September 10 | by Overton Thompson
As the heat of summer finally relents, the fall can be an ideal time for cleaning out your home and garage. VaVia is a dumpster rental company that can help simplify your cleaning and decluttering with an easy disposal solution. Our 10 and 15-yard dumpsters are ideal for home cleanout projects. We have compact trucks to place your dumpster on your driveway, in your yard, or even tucked away in your garage. Other than hazardous materials and liquids, you can put any debris or clutter from your home. If you are feeling overwhelmed getting started with your fall cleanup, try focusing on one space at a time.
- Go for the Garage First–The garage easily turns into a catch-all space for junk. Every homeowner uses their garage differently, but there could be everything from photo boxes, outgrown clothes, tools, yard toys, and more randomly stuffed inside. The first step for any cleanout is to eliminate unused stuff. Your family can work together to categorize your garage storage and determine what stuff can be dumped. If the items are not important for practical purposes or deeply sentimental, let them go. There is great peace from letting go of excess stuff. Maximize your storage by keeping the most used items in accessible places, and storing long-term items, like holiday decorations or memorabilia, on your upper shelves. Storing your items in clear bins with labels will help you find your items more easily. Reorganizing your space will help you make space to store away your summer stuff, such as outdoor cushions, pool floats, etc. Before you place your summer items in storage, make sure that they are wiped clean to preserve their quality until next year.
- Dust your Knick-Knacks and Get Rid of a Few–Dusting can be an overlooked task at any time of the year, but especially during the summer when your family spends less time indoors. Start dusting the shelves in your home and evaluate the stuff on them. There may be decor items, books, frames, etc. that are no longer important to you. Even just eliminating a few small items can make a difference in managing your home clutter. While you are dusting, remember to dust your light fixtures, vents, and fan blades. Dust particles make your home look unclean, but they can also trigger allergies.
- Tackle the Kitchen and Pantry–The kitchen is often the most used space in a home. There are many cleaning tasks that get overlooked, such as cleaning out the pantry and the fridge. Check for out-of-date items and make a list of anything you need to replace. Trying to cook a recipe and finding you have an expired ingredient is deeply frustrating. Save yourself the hassle by tossing the expired items and replacing them. If you have multiples of an item, make sure that the one expiring first is the most accessible. After you have tossed the bad food out, wipe out your pantry and fridge while it is less full. While you are in the kitchen, consider getting rid of any unused kitchen items. Eliminating unused kitchen gadgets and serving pieces will free up space for the things you actually use.
- Change your Air Filters–Air filters play a vital role in preserving your air quality by capturing dust, pollen, pollutants, and allergens. A dirty air filter will compromise your air quality and cause your HVAC system to work harder. Changing your filter will help ensure that your HVAC system will be ready to keep your family comfortable throughout the fall and winter season. You can toss your grimy old filter straight into your dumpster.
