Dumpster Rental Helps with Property Cleanup

We love Florida – the theme parks, outdoor living all year, and gracious, the fresh fruit! But if there’s one thing that makes Florida living difficult, it’s the weather, especially during hurricane season.

In some ways, it’s incredible we’ve even adapted to live in the hurricane belt. While the storms are happening, it can be scary, but when it’s over, we have to get back to business as usual. A dumpster rental can help.

While safety comes first, storm cleanup is a crucial post-hurricane task. Hopefully, your home will be fine, but if not, the cleanup can be both arduous and emotional. You really don’t need further complications.

Dumpsters simplify your cleanup by allowing you to skip multiple trips to the dump and speed up your recovery. Yankee Dumpster will tell you how dumpster rental can save you time and stress after a disaster.

During the Storm

We’re not public safety experts, so when a hurricane is happening, be sure to listen to all public safety announcements! Then, follow instructions for evacuations and sheltering in place, and have an emergency preparedness kit. Our focus is after the storm.

Storm Damage

Hurricanes and other natural disasters cause enormous damage. Once you’ve ensured the safety of yourself and your loved ones, the next thing to do is assess the damage around your home.

Landscape Damage

Often the most damage after a storm is outdoors. The strong winds blow around outdoor furniture and can even uproot trees. Meanwhile, the inches of rainfall can cause flooding and tear up the turf.

You may need to replace some furniture. You may also have some landscaping damage. If it’s extensive, we provide dumpster rentals in whatever size you need. However, tree removal is a lot of work, and hauling it takes a lot of space.

Home Damage

Unfortunately, storms can also destroy parts of your home. Between fallen trees, broken windows, and flooding, many homeowners experience property loss after a significant storm.

Remodeling is stressful in the best of circumstances. Couples struggle to survive planned remodels! But when the remodel is forced on you by an outside force, you must act quickly while also dealing with the emotional loss of property and safety.

Construction creates a lot of trash, even when destruction isn’t what prompted the change. Therefore, dumpster rentals are essential for any home renovation project.

Not only is there a lot of construction junk created when tearing out walls, etc., but a lot of it can’t be left on your curb. Even if you could throw away your construction material in a trash can, you will have too much of it to do so.

Taking multiple trips to the dump is inconvenient and impractical, even in the best of times. And planning out your trash pickup in stages is not another problem you want to add to your list.

Steps to Take

Once a storm has passed, and you’ve ensured everyone’s safety, you should secure your property from the elements. Then you should call your insurance company as soon as possible.

After the insurance company has assessed your home, you’ll have to begin making it whole again. Some damaged property will be thrown away before construction, and then construction will produce additional trash.

Other Disasters

Although we’re currently in hurricane season, there are many other ways a home can experience damage. Accidents happen all the time, as do natural disasters. Whatever situation you are experiencing, Yankee Dumpster can provide you with a dumpster rental to simplify that aspect of your recovery.

Happier Reasons for Dumpster Rental

Although our focus has been on natural disasters due to the current season, Yankee Dumpster is there for you no matter your mass trash needs.

Moving often makes people realize how much stuff they have that they don’t need! Remodeling by choice creates nearly as much trash as a natural disaster, though somewhat less stress. And, of course, we all need to declutter now and then.

In any of these situations, renting a dumpster saves you precious time and simplifies your life, so you can focus on your project, whatever it is.

How Does Renting a Dumpster Work?

Renting a dumpster from Yankee is simple. It all begins with a phone call. Then we’ll ask a few questions about your needs to determine what dumpster will be right for you.

You can rent for a specific period or monthly. Then, we’ll drop it off at your home. Once you’re done with the dumpster, you don’t have to do anything else; we’ll pick it up, and you never have to worry about that trash again.
