One of the most devastating things you can experience is a house fire. There are so many belongings that are lost, and you can never get them back. When you experience a house fire, it may leave you wondering what you can do now. The house more than likely feels like an overwhelming mess as you start to think about cleaning it up. Mickey’s Carting is here to talk about how a dumpster rental can help you pick up the pieces after experiencing a house fire.
Report Damaged Goods Before Throwing Away
The first thing you may want to do when you experience a house fire, is to start throwing all the burned items onsite away. This is a bad idea unless your insurance company has already sent someone out to investigate the house fire. This process can take a couple of days before the ball gets rolling. Once you have completed this portion of the cleanup process, you can start to get rid of damaged items.
What Items Cannot Be Put in a Dumpster?
It is important that you know what can and what cannot be thrown into the dumpster during the cleanup process. You should never throw batteries, tires, tree stumps, lacquers, paints, oil and other hazardous materials into the dumpster. You should always avoid throwing anything that could be flammable or dangerous into a dumpster. Also avoid throwing any televisions, resin or computers away in a dumpster. If you are unsure about whether or not you can throw some items into your dumpster rental, you should always contact the company you rented the dumpster from and ask for that information before moving forward. Most companies should be more than happy to help.
How Do I Know what Size Dumpster I Need?
Another thing to think about is the kind of dumpster you want to help in the cleanup process. You can choose from a number of different sizes to help you in cleaning up the mess from a house fire. If you have a large house and the damage was extensive, you may want a larger 40-yard dumpster to help you get rid of the mess. In some cases, customers feel they can get away with a 30-yard dumpster to get the job done with ease. In any case, you should be able to get a good recommendation from the waste management company that you are working with.
