Efficient DIY Home And Garden Clean Up Tips

Keeping your house and garden clean is crucial, but this becomes a lot more difficult when you work a full-time, 9-to-5 job. You can always hire hire a trailer and a team of professional cleaners to clean up your home for you, but these companies can cost you a small fortune, if you are not careful. Here are several efficient DIY tips to clean up your home and your garden, quickly and effortlessly: 

1. De-Clutter Before You Clean 

The first thing you need to do is to de-clutter the cleaning surface, be it your house or your back yard. Pick up toys, gardening tools, papers, dishes and any other items that may slow down the cleaning process. Only after that you can start the cleaning process!

2. Hire A Trailer For Removing Rubbish 

Sometimes, we involuntarily gather items that are no longer functional or that we no longer need, and they simply pile up in front of our eyes before we even know it. Storing and transporting them to the landfill can be quite challenging, if you do not have the necessary equipment, but this is where trash trailers can come in handy. All you have to do is to look for a professional company that specialises trailer hire in Auckland, and to hire a trailer that meets your needs.

Trailers vary in terms of size, and while some of them are fully manual, others are automated and they allow you to get rid of the rubbish with the push of a button. They are lightweight and efficient mobile bins that you can either hire by the hour or per day - besides, most of the companies will deliver the trailer trash where you need it, without you having to pick it up.

Nonetheless, it is very important to check the policy of the company when you hire a trailer for removing rubbish, as some of them may not allow you to transport building waste, asbestos, food waste, toxic materials, oil, grease, acid or radioactive material that can get stuck on the sides of the trailer or damage it in any way. Any debris that is left behind may incur an additional fee, this is why it is important to know the company’s trailer return policy beforehand. 

4. Keep Your Cleaning Supplies Simple

Now that you have moved most of your belongings to the landfill with the help of  trailer trash, it is important to clean up all the mess that has been left behind.The golden rule of cleaning your home and garden by yourself is that you need to keep it simple. All you need is a light-duty glass cleaner for all the glass and the shiny surfaces or the materials with a glossy finish, a heavy-duty degreasing cleaner to remove the oil from your gardening tools, lawn mower and chainsaw, a powdered abrasive cleanser for the stubborn stains along with an efficient bathroom cleaner. You do not need to invest in single-use products to clean exclusively your fans, blinds or other items, as this will cost you a lot, and there are other alternatives that can be just as efficient!
