Thinking about renovation

A lot of people across the UK will be looking at their homes and thinking about spring cleaning. Some may even be planning larger renovation projects. In both cases skips can be really useful. As a top provider of skip hire Hartlepool home owners can rely on, L&C can offer lots of advice to make your project easier.

Arrange a skip early

Whether you are clearing out or doing renovations that involve demolition or remodelling, skips are the easiest way to get rid of the rubbish. However, you need to be proactive with booking one. Spring can be a very busy period so you need to get in early to book.

Think about all the materials

Skip hire HartlepoolEven a small renovation can produce a huge array of different materials. For example it could be tiles, timber, carpet, brick, plasterboard, and more. What you need to do is consider everything you will need to dispose of. Some of these materials may not be able to go in a skip. For example, there are different rules for any substance that can be harmful or contaminate waste. You should make a list of the materials you will need to throw away so you can ask the skip provider if they can take them.


The last thing anyone wants is to suffer an injury when they are renovating. Skips can help to avoid this. You can place all the waste here so that it is not building up in the property or garden. That can reduce the risk of trips and falls. It also prevents potentially heavy items like old fixtures from tipping over and hurting people nearby.

Think about asbestos

If your property was built before 2000 it is likely it contains asbestos in one form or another. You may need to get a survey to check for it before you do any renovations involving demolition work. This will ensure you can remove materials safely and put them in a skip. If the surveyor finds asbestos you need to arrange for a professional to remove it first before you do anything else. That is important because it is incredible harmful once disturbed. You also can’t put any material in a skip that may be contaminated with it.
