The arrival of fall in Fayetteville means that winter is fast approaching. Now is the time to undertake an autumn cleanout to ready your house, and yard, before the first snowfall. To do the cleanout correctly, you will need to rent a dumpster to place the waste in from your fall cleanout and yard clean up. When it comes to dumpster rental in Fayetteville, no one can beat Fayetteville Dumpster Rentals. We can deliver a roll-off dumpster directly to your driveway. We can advise you what size roll-off dumpster you will need to for your fall clean up. There is no other Fayetteville dumpster rental company that gives you the value that we do. Here are a few tips for your autumn cleanout.
Your Fall Cleanout
During the winter, you will be spending more time indoors, so you should create more open space to prevent a claustrophobic atmosphere. Think about getting rid of old furniture that is no longer being used, such as broken tables or a child's chair that is too small for the child. Broken and broken down items should be disposed of first. Getting rid of those items will give you more space, and it will allow you to maneuver when cleaning and moving out other things. Be sure to follow safe lifting procedures when you move heavier items. Remember, two people or more is a good idea when moving bulky furniture.
Once you have removed all unneeded items, it's time to clean the inside of your house thoroughly. A fall cleanout will require multiple cleaning products, so be sure to consider that when you rent a roll-off dumpster from Fayetteville Dumpster Rental. Your health is critical, so you need to check around your house for signs of mold or mildew. If you encounter any during your fall cleanout, you will need to clean this before anything else to make sure your home's air is healthy. Mold and mildew is a symptom of a leaky roof; we will get to that soon. Bleach is an excellent way to remove mold and mildew. You can apply the bleach directly or purchase cleaning products with bleach that allow it to be sprayed. Be sure to wear safety goggles and protective gloves while cleaning with bleach.
If items are too moldy to be saved, you should dispose of them in your roll-off dumpster. In most fall cleanouts you will discover some piece of furniture or an item in the garage that has become too covered with mold or mildew to be saved, so you should also take that into account in what size roll-off dumpster you rent.
Next, inspect the exterior of your house to ensure it's ready for winter. Damaged shingles on the rooftop are a priority and should be removed and thrown in your roll-off dumpster. A handyman, or roofer for more substantial jobs, can replace the damaged shingles. Not replacing damaged shingles will lead to leaks inside your home. If your home has siding, be sure it's secure and undamaged; loose or damaged siding should be repaired prior to winter. If possible, measure damaged siding before ordering your rental roll-off dumpster so we can recommend the correct size. Be sure that spigots are frost proof and that your sprinklers system is winterized.
Inspect Your Yard
Once you have completed the house inspection, you should prepare your yard. A yard fall cleanout, including a backyard fall cleanup, is imperative to prepare for winter weather. Leaves should be raked and placed by the street, as the city of Fayetteville collects all yard waste and disposes of it. In fact, we cannot accept yard waste in our dumpsters as the local landfills do not accept it.
Be sure to prune tree limbs too close to your house. The weight of snow or ice could cause limbs to fall and damage your roof. Be sure to mow your lawn before winter. It should be mowed to a height of two inches so it will survive beneath a blanket of snow. Your grass clippings should be disposed of with other yard waste.
