Is there an item on your spring cleaning checklist that you have been putting off all season? For many homeowners, it’s cleaning out their basement. This area can quickly accumulate old furniture, appliances, and boxes full of junk, making cleaning a tall task.

If you are planning a basement clean out, here are four tips to help it go as smoothly as possible:

  • Take it one step at a time. If you have a lot of junk in your basement, cleaning it all out can be intimidating. Avoid feeling overwhelmed by taking everything one step at a time. Break up your basement into different sections, and focus on cleaning them one by one.

  • Allocate enough time. Be realistic with your expectations – don’t think an hour or two will be enough time to clean up a big mess. Set aside an entire weekend and dedicate it to cleaning out your basement. If you finish in less than your allocated time, consider the free time a bonus and use it to treat yourself.

  • Rent a dumpster. The junk from your basement isn’t going to fit in your standard garbage can. Renting a dumpster is an easy, convenient way to handle your inevitable waste disposal problem. Just have the container delivered, fill it up, and the company will return to haul it away. No driving back and forth to the dump.

  • Hire a junk removal service. If the stress of your basement clean out is getting the best of you, hire someone else to deal with the problem. A professional junk removal service will come to your home and take away all of your unwanted items for a modest price. They get the job done quickly, and you don’t have to lift a finger.
