3 Garage Cleaning Tips

Most people do not spend much time in their garage at all, especially if they do not park their car there or use it as an entryway into the house. It can be easy to neglect the piles of things that accumulate over time because they are tucked out of sight. It is a good idea to clean out the garage at least once a year to check items for signs of damage and get rid of things that are no longer needed.

  1. Declutter

Garages tend to be a magnet for things that are seldom or never used. Go through all of the things one by one and recycle, donate, sell or toss out anything that is not needed. Even junk cars Dekalb County GA should be considered, as many people keep them around with the intention of fixing them up and then do not act on it. Get rid of as many items as possible to clear up space.

  1. Clean

After everything has been gone through, clear out the remaining items and wipe down all of the shelving units, cabinets, tables and benches. Sweep up and clean the floor with an appropriate cleaner.

  1. Organize

If there are a lot of objects that need to be put back into the garage and not enough space for everything, then think about ways to add storage space. Nailing plywood down to the top of the rafters can increase the storage space by a lot. Things can be hung from floor to ceiling and labeled boxes and containers can keep seasonal items together.

Spending a day or two out in the garage cleaning and organizing everything can transform the look and feel of the space. When things are neatly put away in their proper place and there are no unruly piles on the floor, it looks and feels more inviting.
