How to Keep Your Yard Clean During a Renovation

If you’re in the process of remodeling your home, you may be thrilled with the improvements you are making. However, you may not be as thrilled with how the process makes your yard look unkempt. So, if you’re looking for ways to keep your yard clean during a renovation, we are happy to help.

Use Plastic Covers to Keep the Dirt and Debris Contained

During a renovation, it’s normal for dust and debris to fly every which way. You can do damage control by blocking the area that’s under renovation with plastic covers and using construction tape to make sure it stays in place. This won’t keep your yard entirely clean – it just makes the clean-up process easier, since the debris is concentrated in one area.

Clean Up as You Go

If you wait to clean up when the renovation is over, you won’t be too happy with the state of your yard. However, if you schedule daily clean ups, it becomes easier to keep your yard neat even with the renovation underway. The clean up will be more manageable and the contractors and handymen will appreciate working in a tidy and organized environment each day.

Use a Hose to Wash Off Dust And Debris

If your lawn and plants end up looking a sorry sight because they are covered in dust and debris, you can get them clean again by using a hose. Gently wash off any dust and debris that’s sticking out like a sore thumb. You can also use a broom to sweep away the dust that has collected as a result of the renovation.

Hire a Trash Collection Service

Renovation tends to produce all sorts of debris that can be difficult to dispose of. The best way to make the junk magically disappear is by hiring a trash collection service and a roll-off dumpster rental. Most trash collection experts can even help sort out your trash to separate the recyclable items from the non-recyclable items.

In America, about 87% of people have access to curbside or drop-off paper recycling programs. You can do your part for the environment by confirming if such a service is available in your area. If yes, then take advantage and make your renovation count for the environment where possible.

Go ahead and keep your renovation neat and exciting with these tips. Hopefully, once the renovation is over, your property will look even more amazing and you won’t have to break your back with clean-ups.
