While cleaning your home to prepare for holiday guests, remember to give some attention to your basement, attic, and garage. Even if these spaces are only for storage, having them cleaned out will make room for storing away your belongings and making room for new presents. Winter is ideal for cleaning out these rooms because Georgia winters are generally mild, and these spaces can be quite warm at other times of the year. For small scale cleanouts, you may be able to dispose of your extra junk with your weekly trash service or utilizing our transfer station. For large clean out projects, reserving a dumpster would be wise. Our 15 yard dumpster is a popular size choice for residential projects.
Basement—Whether finished or not, a basement is a popular storage spot for many homeowners. If your basement is finished and usable, cleaning out your basement could make space to create a fun space for your family like a game room or a media room. Evaluate the value of your junk and determine whether letting go of it will be helpful for your family. Since we can accept various items (besides liquids and hazardous materials), most of your basement junk should be just fine to toss in our dumpster.
Attic—Attic storage spaces are often filled with long-term storage. Some of your belongings stored away in the attic may only be used annually or not at all. Items stored away in the attic are often forgotten about since they are out of sight. If you are storing away things of sentimental value, consider how you can preserve the memory in a more practical way. For example, boxes of photos could be digitally scanned and kept in better condition than in a dusty cardboard box.
Garage—For many homeowners, the garage is a catchall for random tools, outdoor toys, and lawn equipment. Evaluate the condition of your belongings first as garage storage can often allow items to get exposed to moisture, mold, and rust. If your items are damaged, toss them in the dumpster. Any tools that you have not used in the past year are probably not that important. Outdoor plastic toys can become brittle over time from being exposed to the sun. You could offer outgrown toys in good condition to your neighbors but throw away the broken ones.
Using a dumpster can simplify your clean out project greatly. If you are waiting for your weekly trash service, you will likely have more than can fit in your can. Also, your trash service may not accept all the junk you want to throw away. Our transfer station will accept it, but you would have to drive your junk over. If you do not have a truck or larger vehicle, you may not be able to haul your junk. Also, trips back and forth to the transfer station take up your valuable time. When you schedule a dumpster with us, we deliver it at the requested time, you load it up, and we pick it up whenever you are done.
Our dumpsters make large clean out projects easy. Schedule your dumpster online or give us a call! ADM Rolloff is ready to help you get rid of your clutter.
