It's Time for Fall Cleaning

Do you think the best time for a major cleanout is spring? Think again! Now that summer is over and the colder months are coming, it’s time to conquer some much-needed chores and get ready for winter. Use the following tips for successful fall cleaning!



  • If your deck isn’t screened in, then it’s time to clean and store your patio furniture, umbrellas, and any outdoor summer toys
  • Touch up the paint jobs on your trim, railings, and decks. Use a wire brush to remove paint that's begun to flake off. It's probably time for a fresh seal on your outdoor wood too
  • Check the caulking around your windows and doors to make sure it hasn’t cracked or come off
  • Do your external and garage doors close tightly? If not, install some weather stripping or new door thresholds
  • Wash your windows
  • Drain and store your garden hose--cover the outside spigots as well
  • Clean out those gutters
  • Got a fireplace? Use it this winter, but first get it cleaned out


  • Vacuum or wash your drapes and/or curtains
  • Clean your window sills
  • Vacuum your upholstered furniture, or have it professionally cleaned if needed
  • Thoroughly vacuum your floors--move your furniture if you have to and really get all that dust
  • Wash the insides of your windows
  • Schedule a professional carpet cleaning while warm afternoons can still speed up carpet drying
  • Clear kitchen counters of anything you haven’t used in the last few weeks—this could be a blender, a coffee maker, or a toaster
  • Check your dryer’s exhaust tube and vent for built-up lint, debris, or even birds’ nests
  • Drain the sediment from your hot water heater

Following this checklist will have you on your way to a clean and cozy winter home, inside and out. And don’t forget that Bin There Dump That is here to help you with all your dumpster needs! Order online or call us today at 732-313-2838.
