Here Are The Top Reasons to Professionally Clean Your Trash Cans and Dumpsters

Trash bins and dumpsters constantly become contaminated with all sorts of waste products. These include rotten + discarded food scraps, tissues, used paper towels, and more. And even so, these are merely the normal, everyday items we ourselves put into these bins and pails. After that garbage has been sitting for a while and possibly sitting in the sweltering the hot sun, your pails will quickly become filled with all sorts of bacteria and germs which can make you and your family sick.

Then, of course, there's also rodents, insects, and all other sorts of vermin who love your filthy bins. These creatures thrive in this dirty, germ-filled environment — an environment that could potentially make you or your family sick or worse.

To some people, this may seem fairly straight forward and easy to understand. To others, they wonder why anyone would pay for a service like this. They might think "even if they do need to be cleaned, I can do that myself". Well, you might want to read this article first before you take on that task yourself.

Whether it's your home or business, we can’t overlook the horrible smells and unsightly appearance of dirty trash bins on our property. Just in case it’s not already abundantly clear why, here are the top reasons why you should have your trash bins cleaned on a regular basis.

Trash Bins Can Ruin the Appearance of Your Property

Home and business owners spend a lot of time and money on other aspects of their properties. Things like lawn care, siding, roofing, landscaping, and more. So why would you overlook something like dirty, smelly trash bins? All of the aforementioned items can dramatically increase the curb appeal of our living space — our trash cans included. It makes perfect sense that we would want to keep something that's as visible as trash bins looking presentable. Additionally, when your trash and recycling bins look and smell clean, you won’t be hesitant when you have to move them back and forth on trash days.
Germ + Bacteria Elimination Both Inside and Outside of Waste Bins

Believe it or not, trash bins, recycling pails, and dumpsters are a breeding ground for a wide variety of germs and bacteria. No one wants to handle items that might be contaminated with Listeria, Salmonella, or E-Coli (just to name a few of the many issues you can face when handling trash and recycling bins). By sanitizing your trash bins you'll kill these type of germs and protect your family and employees from the possibility of disease and sickness.

The Trash Bin Cleaning Process is a Wildlife Deterrent

You don't need to live in a rural area to know that animals will find garbage. All sorts of wildlife are quickly attracted to food scraps and food containers placed inside your trash bins. Raccoons, rats, mice, bears, possums, and all other sorts of wildlife will rummage through your bins leaving an even larger mess than you bargained for. When your trash bins are regularly cleaned and disinfected, you’ll greatly reduce the possibility of attracting this sort of wildlife onto your property.

Insect Elimination From Within Our Garbage Cans

Flies are attracted to just about any sort of trash, especially in the warmer weather months. Worse than that, these same flies will quickly breed in these exact locations. The result will be trash bins filled with maggots. When this situation goes unchecked, these maggots quickly hatch into more flies. From there, the problem continues to grow creating a situation where we won’t even want to take out our trash just to avoid going near the filthy bins.

The Cleaning Process Removes Odors From Our Trash Bins

All of myriad of trash that we place into our trash and recycling pails will naturally create an offensive odor. This is the reason we take out the trash -- we don't want the germs or smell in our home. Rotting food, used paper towels, wipes, and diapers, are just a few of the more common items we throw out each and every day. That said, it's no wonder our trash cans smell as bad as they do. Plus, the odor will intensify as your trash sits waiting to be picked up by your local service. This is especially in warmer weather when temperatures are above 75 degrees. If your trash bins aren’t cleaned and sanitized regularly, the smell remains and simply gets worse over time as it becomes layered with more odors week after week.
