I'm Not Touching That! 4 Reasons You Need To Clean Your Trash Bins


If you haven't washed your trash bins out in a while, it's time to take care of that. Washing your trash bins might not seem like the most fun thing to do, but it is one of the most important things you can do around your house. Unfortunately, trash bin cleaning is probably one of the most frequently overlooked home maintenance project. If you're still not sold on the idea of washing your trash bin, here are four reasons why you should be.

Keep Odors Under Control

The next time you open your trash bin, take a deep breath. If the odor leaves you breathless, or lingers in your nostrils for a few minutes, you need to clean your bins. Those foul odors outside your door could be coming from your trash bins. Cleaning your bins at least once a month will get rid of those odors, which will allow you to breathe easier when you take your bags out to the trash.

Get Rid of the Pests

Those foul odors may be noxious to you, but they're a welcome invitation to all the pests in your neighborhood. Roaches, flies, and even mice are attracted to the foul odors that permeate from rotting trash. Keeping your trash bins clean and the odors away will help get rid of the pests, including the maggots that are so common during the warmer months.

Prevent Animal Invasions

If you're tired of cleaning up the trash each time the neighbor dogs dig through it, you might want to wash your bins. Dogs, like other pests, are attracted to the odors that are coming from your trash bins. If your bins don't smell like rotting food and your lids are kept closed, the neighborhood dogs and cats will stay out of your trash.

Promote Good Health

If you've got dirty trash bins, you've got a germ problem. The last thing you want to do is get a handful of germs when you take the trash out. Unfortunately, if your trash bins are dirty, that's exactly what you're going to get every time to you touch them. That means you'll be bringing those germs back into your home, too. You can avoid getting a handful of nasty germs by washing your trash bins once a month.

Don't get stuck with smelly, germ-infested trash bins. Keep them sanitary by cleaning them on a regular basis. If you don't want to clean them yourself, talk to a sanitation company, like Respectable  Receptacle LLC, about having them cleaned.

How the Sanitation Industry Keeps Big Cities Clean

Hi there, my name is Jody Becker. Welcome to my website. I am here to talk to you about how the sanitation industry keeps cities clean. When I moved to a big city, I was shocked at the level of organization needed to keep the streets tidy. I paid close attention to how the sanitation workers serviced each area using their garbage, recycling and yard waste trucks. On this site, I hope to explore this topic in more detail to help everyone understand how these professionals perform their jobs. Please feel free to come by daily to learn more. Thank you for visiting my site.
