The holiday season is here and while we’re all thrilled about Christmas and New Year, some of us are wondering what to do with that home cleaning project we had in mind to get done before Christmas. House cleaning and renovation projects are very common around this time of the year because many people have family and friends visiting their house on Christmas. While many people get done with their cleaning projects before the temperatures drop below freezing points in areas obviously north of Florida; yet there are some that still haven’t started.
If you’re running behind schedule and have no option but to embark on your cleaning or renovation project in the cold weather of December, don’t worry! It’s completely do-able! With a few precautionary measures and tips, you can adequately get your work completed in time for Christmas.
Naturally all projects create waste and it is disposing the waste in the cold that is the real problem. Working outside of your centrally heated home with a dumpster rental can be chilly so make sure you follow these important tips!
#1: Layer Up!
Before you start working on your project and dumping your waste in the rented dumpster, you need to keep yourself warm. Layer up in warm clothes from head to toe because your health is the most vital thing you need to take care of! Use gloves to handle and shift your waste to the rented dumpster.
#2: Clear Up the Snow and Ice
In snowy areas, the ice and snow might accumulate around the property. When you’re renting a dumpster, you want to make sure that the area of land where it will be parked is clean of snow and is not slippery at all. Slippery areas for the roll-off dumpster can be a serious health and environmental hazard.
#3: Cover the Dumpster
A dumpster with a lid is a dumpster you need in winter. Cover the dumpster at night to prevent any snow or hail falling on your waste. This could not only make the waste more easily slip out but it could add unnecessary weight.
