Small Home Changes Can Improve Your Family's Health

My husband and I both suffer from allergies and asthma and, unfortunately, two of our children inherited our health problems. Living with both can be a struggle, but we take every step we can to keep our family healthy. One spring, when our seasonal allergies were especially bad, we decided to finally have our carpeting replaced with natural tile flooring and that was a great decision. Even though it seemed like we vacuumed constantly, I guess our carpets harbored more dust and mites than we ever expected! Since then, we have invested in other upgrades to improve our family's health, including antimicrobial kitchen counter tops. I enjoy helping others, so I decided to start a blog to share what we have learned about home upgrades and renovations. I plan to post on a variety of topics, so there will be something of interest to everyone!

3 Helpful Tips For Home Renovators Renting Out Dumpsters

If you're renovating a home, chances are a lot of materials will need to be scrapped. There's no better resource for this task than a rental dumpster. To ensure your dumpster rental goes as planned, utilize the following tips. 

Compare Rental Rates 

If there are several dumpster rental companies in your area that you can work with, it's important to compare their rates. Only then can you choose a rental company that works best for your particular budget.

When talking to these dumpster suppliers, let them know what dumpster you're wanting and how long you plan on renting it for. They should then provide you with an accurate quote right then and there. Do this with several suppliers until you have some rates to analyze. Look for the supplier that has the most competitive rate. 

Choose an Appropriate Size 

When renting a dumpster for home remodeling purposes, you need to choose an appropriately sized dumpster. Otherwise, all of your materials may not fit inside and then you may potentially have to order another unit. 

You can avoid this headache by thinking about the size of your remodeling project. Is it extensive and involve a lot of materials or are you just scrapping several large materials from the house? Thinking about what's going inside can help you choose the correct size from the very start.

If you have any trouble, you can always talk to the dumpster supplier directly. They've probably assisted with many projects like yours before and can thus guide you in the right direction. 

Follow Dumping Protocol 

Even though these rental dumpsters are designed for a lot of items, you can't just throw whatever you like inside. If you do, you could suffer hefty penalties that could have easily been avoided if you just followed the right dumping protocol.

To find out what you can and can't dump, look at the dumpster supplier's website. They should include a thorough list of everything that can't go in their dumpsters. These items typically include food, paint, oil, gas, fertilizers, and insecticides. Basically anything that can spoil or spread toxins should not go in these dumpsters, no matter what.

Rental dumpsters are incredible resources for renovating homes, as they help you keep the work site clean and safe. As long as you focus on the right details of this rental process, your dumpster or dumpsters should work out perfectly and make your renovations easier to complete.
