With spring cleaning as a much-needed activity to do after the wintry months, there's nothing better than freshening our homes and getting a head start for spring and summer. This gives us the chance to store items away and start cleaning our homes, garages, and vehicles, yet spring cleaning can feel time-consuming and challenging.
It may feel daunting to clean your house from top to bottom, but it doesn't have to be difficult. Continue reading to find out what 6 USCC products can help you get the job done.
1. L-Tracks and E-Tracks
Need to transport your heavier items safely and securely? If you need to place your personal items in your pickup truck or trailer, consider using our L-Tracks and E-Tracks.
The difference between L-Tracks and E-Tracks is the L-Track is a more lightweight, aluminum track with a narrower profile that's perfect for limited space. The L-Track could be used for any vehicle or trailer, but it is more common to use for your pickup truck. If you need something sturdier for your flat trailer or enclosed trailer, our selection of E-Tracks will do the job as it is the industry standard for cargo control.
2. Ratchet Straps and Cam Straps
If you're an avid reader of our blog, then you may already know that we specialize in ratchet straps and cam straps. Tiedowns are one of our specialties and these straps are perfect to use for any tie down application that you'll need for your chores. You can use straps to store or hold personal items together if you're cleaning any areas like your garage.
Use our 1" Ratchet Straps or 1" Cam Straps for the best tiedown experience. The difference between ratchet straps and cam straps is the cam straps are faster to secure than ratchet straps. Also, they are handy for securing fragile cargo loads because of their ability to not over-tighten like ratchet straps.
To complete your L-Track or E-Track system, check out our L-Track straps and E-Tracks straps. We also carry E-Track kits so everything can be delivered to your door in one package.

3. Moving Blankets and Mover Bands
If you're concerned about leaving a mark on your valuables, be worry-free with our moving blankets that'll cover your items entirely. With the winter days over, you can finally move things around while you're cleaning, but the best part? You won't have to worry about scratching or denting anything when you use our moving blankets.
Our mover bands can secure the moving blankets or pads for protection from moving. They are very flexible and are perfect to use to prevent any shifting.
4. Moving Dollies and Hand Trucks
Moving something extremely bulky or heavy? Don't hurt your back and use a moving dolly or hand truck! A dolly or hand truck will help you "roll" things around and allows you to have more space to clean your house. Cleaning just got easier now!
It's true, having a little help from wheels can lighten the load.
5. Floor Protectors
Speaking of having a little help from a set of wheels, sometimes wheels can scratch your floors. Not only that, you may not want to dent or scratch the floor while you're moving things around.
Our neoprene floor runner and carpet protector products are the ideal layer of protection for floors, making spring cleaning easy breezy. They'll not only protect any type of flooring from abrasions, but they will also create a flat, non-slip surface and can be cut to fit your space as needed.
6. Cargo Nets
Need to hold your items together in your pickup truck bed or trailer? Need to dump some trash? Use our cargo nets that'll hold everything together while you are driving! It is safer for you and those around you to prevent damage from your load flying out of your truck, or from your items flying everywhere in your trailer.
We even carry light-duty pickup truck cargo nets that will stretch in the bed of a truck and easily attach to the side rail with sewn-in hardware. These will be made of either high-quality bungee material or a tough 2" wide polyester webbing.
