It may still be cold outside, but spring will be here before you know it, and if you're like many Americans you will participate in spring cleaning. In fact, 66% of adults in the United States take spring cleaning pretty seriously. While this can be a time-consuming chore, there are some things you can do to make this monumental task a little less daunting. One example would be to rent certain types of equipment to make the cleaning process go more smoothly and quickly.
Here are three helpful things to rent when it comes to spring cleaning.
If you plan to completely declutter your home, you'll need a place to put all of that unnecessary stuff you have accumulated through the years. Some of that stuff may include things like:
- Broken appliances like microwaves and dishwashers
- Television sets and computers that no longer work
- Unused wooden furniture
All of these types of things are usually accepted by dumpster rental companies. If you plan on tidying up your yard, you can also dispose of tree limbs and shrubs in the dumpster. For more information, contact a company such as ESP Dumpsters & Waste Services.
Carpet Cleaning Machine
Cleaning your carpets will not only improve the overall appearance of your home, but it can also extend the life of your carpets. Most carpeting has a life span of about 3 to 5 years, but if you take care of it, including cleaning it on a regular basis, your carpets will last longer.
Another reason it's important to clean your carpets is that it's good for your health. By cleaning your carpets, you'll be removing unwanted contaminants, dust mites, and allergens that take residence in your flooring. Clean carpets can even improve your indoor air quality.
While you may be tempted to hire a professional carpet cleaning service, renting a carpet cleaning machine and doing it yourself won't cost nearly as much as hiring a professional.
Renting a pressure washer is a must if you plan on doing some spring cleaning outside your home. Here are some things you'll want to use a pressure washer for:
- Your fencing
- The exterior of your house
- Your garage door
- Your driveway
- The outdoor grill
- Patios, decks, and outdoor furniture
You can also make good use of a pressure washer by using it to knock down spiderwebs and wasp nests. While you're at it, you might even want to use it to wash your car and all your lawn equipment.
