How Do You Protect a Dumpster & Keep Rain Out in Saratoga Springs, UT? Cover with a Tarp & More

Why Choose Rolys® Dumpster Rentals

There is no easier way to get rid of trash or debris from a large project than with a dumpster rental. It doesn't matter what you need your dumpster rental for, you want to make sure that you are using it to its full potential. This means taking precautions whenever you are experiencing inclement weather during the period of time you have a dumpster rental. Rolys Dumpster Rental is here to talk about what you need to do to make sure your dumpster is protected when you experience rain or other kinds of inclement weather.

How Do You Keep Rain Out of Dumpsters & Protect Them from Other Weather Conditions?

Whenever you rent a dumpster, you want to make sure that you are able to maximize its use. This means that you are going to need to protect it in the case that inclement weather is a threat.

  • Rain: It isn't uncommon for our area to experience flashes of severe rain and thunderstorms. During these moments of heavy rain, it is not wise to leave your dumpster unprotected. It doesn't take long for your dumpster to start filling up with rainwater during these bouts of heavy rain. When your dumpster is filling up with rain, it can make it difficult to fill it up with the trash that you need to.
  • Humidity & Hot Weather: Humidity and hot weather are more than likely not things you think about when it comes to your dumpster. However, if there's excess moisture in the air it can cause mold and mildew problems that make it more difficult to use your dumpster safely. Also, when the weather is extremely hot and dry, there is a greater fire risk with your dumpster.
  • Snow, Hail & Freezing Rain: While you are more than likely not going to be concerned about snow during this time of the year, many people do rent dumpsters during the winter months. You need to make sure that your dumpster has the protection that it needs during these kinds of storms especially considering that the dumpster itself can sustain damage from hailstorms.

How Do You Put a Tarp over a Dumpster to Keep Rain, Snow & Moisture Out?

That there is bad weather on its way, you can take precautions to make sure that your dumpster is protected against these storms. You can go about this a couple of different ways. First, you can purchase dumpster covers that fit the dumpster perfectly as they are designed for this exact purpose. They will be made to size and are easily installed on top of the dumpster. You can also use a tarp to cover your dumpster. There are several areas found around the dumpster that you can easily tie down a tarp to keep rainwater and other moisture caused by storms out of your dumpster.
