Cleaning Up Your Outdoors After Winter

Posted by Junk King on Mar 6, 2019 11:43:00 AM



Spring is here and cleaning your outdoor area will likely result in yard waste that will need to be disposed of. Hmm what to do with all that green stuff and where to begin?

For many homeowners and renters, the arrival of spring not only means baseball and warmer weather, but a good opportunity to get their yards back in shape. Obviously some get to start sooner than others, but the work is the same: cutting, pruning, trimming and mowing.

And, for the more ambitious, possibly taking out some old plants and putting in some new ones.

Taking On the Work of Outdoor Cleaning 

While mowing the lawn and picking up all the dead branches and leaves is pretty straightforward work, there are a number of other tasks that should be done for your outdoor space. 

Your house, decks, patios and other areas should be cleaned as well.

Here's a handy checklist to help you cover all the cleaning items that may need to be addressed in between pruning, mowing and planting.


If you have a single story home this can be relatively easy though a two (or three!) story house can be far more challenging. One really effective method is to rent a steam machine from your local home improvement store to clean the outside windows. It is great at removing built up dirt and grime.


For most siding, a pressure washer will do the trick. Just be sure to do this before you do your windows! If you have vinyl siding, however, avoid the pressure washer - it can push water behind your siding panels and possibly cause mold or rot later in the year.

Garage Door

Most people never think about their garage door needing cleaned, but it, too, can build up grime and even mold or mildew. For most doors you can use the same tools you use to wash your car. If you do choose to use a pressure washer, though, be careful not to get water into your garage.


There are a number of methods for cleaning sidewalks and driveways, but here's a simple one from the expertsinyourhome.com blog:

  1. Treat the concrete with dish soap and water.
  2. Upgrade to a powder laundry detergent and water.
  3. Apply a scrubbing cleanser, such as Comet or Bon Ami.
  4. Exchange your brush for a pressure washer, starting over again with water alone and then working through the cleansers.

Depending on where you live getting rid of cobwebs is another cleaning task. This is a good time to look for and remove any old wasp nests and other "structures" left by insects, birds and other creatures.

If you have a deck that needs cleaning this will be determined by the type of material your deck is made of. Spring is a great time to clean and restore your deck so that you have a beautiful area for backyard entertaining and relaxing.

The Need for Yard Waste Disposal

Of course, all this work will result not only in an attractive and inviting outdoor area, but piles of yard waste, debris and assorted junk that will need to be disposed of. Some of that might fit in your "green" waste bin, if you have one. But if your cleaning and outdoor restoration results in a large amount of yard waste, you need a better disposal option.

Maybe you've never considered calling a professional junk hauling firm for your yard waste. And you might even think that those large piles of trimmings, foliage, and organic debris aren't something that a junk removal company would deal with.

Actually, it's a great option!

In fact, by calling Junk King, for example, we will remove almost every type of yard debris and waste, such as branches, clippings, stumps, soil, sod and other landscaping debris. The only thing we can't pick up for you is anything that is hazardous waste. 

Aside from that, we can remove and haul other types of junk and debris left from residential landscaping and improvement projects, including old fencing, timber and lumber. You might have some debris hanging around from some home repairs or renovations.

No worries! We also pick up and haul sheet rock, door frames, windows, shingles and even corrugated metal or plastic.

Because junk can accumulate over the previous seasons, you want to get rid of it before another winter comes around. Spring is an especially good time to go through your yard and property and do some thorough cleaning up. If you’re a gardener, it’s time to break out your tools and mulch. 

Of course, this means that you’re going to have piles of empty bags, unwanted yard and garden items and maybe even old lawn furniture that you just don't want any more.

And it’s likely that you may already have bags of yard waste, like branches, mulch or clippings, that kept piling up through the fall and winter. Having to take them to the dump is time consuming and burdensome – and that’s you even have a vehicle that can handle it all.
