Our professional bin cleaning service begins with a thorough inspection of your bins to identify any stubborn stains or odors. We then use high-pressure washing to remove dirt, grime, and bacteria from the inside and outside of the bins. Next, we apply a specialized shampoo to eliminate any remaining odors. Finally, we use a disinfectant to ensure that your bins are sanitized and free from harmful bacteria. Trust our experienced team to leave your bins fresh and clean after every service. Gather Supplies:

  • Rubber gloves

  • Hose or pressure washer

  • Long-handled brush or scrubbing tool

  • Dish soap or disinfectant cleaner

  • Baking soda or vinegar (optional for deodorizing)

  1. Choose an Outdoor Cleaning Area:

    • Select an outdoor area where you can safely clean your garbage bin without causing mess indoors.

  2. Safety Precautions:

    • Put on rubber gloves to protect your hands from bacteria and contaminants.

  3. Empty the Bin:

    • Ensure the garbage bin is empty before starting the cleaning process. Remove any remaining trash and recyclables.

  4. Rinse the Bin:

    • Use a hose or pressure washer to thoroughly rinse the inside and outside of the bin. This helps remove loose debris and prepare the surface for cleaning.

  5. Apply Soap or Cleaner:

    • Squirt dish soap or apply a disinfectant cleaner directly onto the interior and exterior surfaces of the bin.

  6. Scrub the Bin:

    • Use a long-handled brush or scrubbing tool to scrub the inside and outside of the bin thoroughly. Pay special attention to areas with visible dirt, grime, or stains.

  7. Rinse Thoroughly:

    • After scrubbing, rinse the bin again with a hose or pressure washer to remove soap residue and loosened debris.

  8. Deodorize (Optional):

    • If your bin has lingering odors, sprinkle baking soda or spray vinegar inside the bin to help neutralize odors naturally. Allow it to sit for a few minutes before rinsing.

  9. Dry the Bin:

    • Allow the bin to air dry completely before putting it back into use. You can also wipe the interior and exterior surfaces with a clean cloth to speed up the drying process.

  10. Regular Maintenance:

    • To keep your garbage bin clean and odor-free, consider establishing a regular cleaning schedule. Cleaning your bin every few weeks or as needed helps prevent the buildup of dirt, grime, and odors.

By following these steps, you can effectively clean your garbage bin and maintain a sanitary environment in and around your home. Regular cleaning not only helps control odors but also contributes to a healthier living environment for you and your family.
