When you think about what affects a home’s exterior curb appeal, several things probably come immediately to mind: lawn and landscaping, windows and paint, the condition of the roof, deck and patio, etc. Any of those things can add to or detract from a home’s value.
Something you probably don’t think about is a dirty trash bin in front of the home.
It doesn’t seem to make sense that an ugly trash bin could negatively affect someone’s impression of your home, but it can. Unattractive sights grab our attention because they stick out, and they can impact how we think and feel about the location overall.
When your neighborhood allows it, storing a trash bin out front is really convenient, and it’s understandable that you might not want to keep it in the garage or behind your home instead. Plus, not all homes have garages or carports, so the former may not even be an option.
An attractive alternative is to have your trash bins professionally cleaned and sanitized regularly.
Dirty trash bins aren’t just an eyesore. They can also create real problems.
Because of their contents, dirty trash bins are a paradise for breeding bacteria. Many of those bacteria types can present health risks to humans and pets. When you touch the dirty trash bin, you can pick up harmful bacteria and bring it into the house, exposing others to it.
Dirty trash bins attract rodents, insects, and other pests. Some of the animals dirty trash bans attract are merely nuisances, and that’s bad enough on its own. However, others may carry and transmit diseases that can harm people, or they can cause structural damage to a home. Raccoons are of particular concern since they are known carriers of rabies.
Unpleasant odors are another unwanted byproduct of dirty trash bins. You’ve probably noticed that even if you carefully bag all trash, your trash bins start to develop bad odors over time when you don’t clean them out.
Finally, dirty trash bins can negatively impact the rest of the neighborhood. A home with a deflated value can contribute to depressed values for other homes nearby. Anyone who’s tried to sell a home when another on the street is in shabby condition knows this all too well.
