Get Your Garage Clean Out Done this Spring
Perhaps you’ve been here, it’s the middle of the summer, you’re in your garage, looking for something specific. You look around and see nothing but clutter, struggling to find said item, on top of that you can’t remember the last time you saw it. Before it gets to this point, you should consider when doing your garage clean out.
Prepare Yourself for Your Clean Up
Starting a garage clean up isn’t always an easy process, but it is very important to do. Removing clutter and cleaning up the space will create extra storage, remove any potential hazards, and even create a room you could spend time in. At the very least you’ll have a space to store your lawn mower.
Remove the Junk
There’s probably a lot of “stuff” in your garage. From lawn care tools, holiday supplies, and other miscellaneous items from when you moved in, the list goes on and on. The best way to tackle the mess is to simply remove it. Put it all out in your driveway or yard, this will help you organize items you can sell or donate, what you no longer can use and must be thrown away and what you want to keep.
To help get rid of the items you no longer need or can’t donate, rent a dumpster with us at Dumpster Rental Inc. We will haul away all of your useless garage items for a low cost!
Once your junk is out of the way, it’s time to make any updates you need, before putting things back in.
- Replace old drain caps or floor cover plates – If they’re at all rusted or show some wear and tear, purchase new ones. At the least, do some general cleaning.
- Update garage door seals – Ensure they’re properly functioning and fit your desired look. Replace them if they don’t check these boxes.
- Remove floor fixtures – If it’s not built into the wall or cemented to the ground, get it out. This includes cabinets, sinks or even appliances.
Before you start putting things back into the garage, think about how much storage space you could add by simply adding cabinets and shelving. Cabinets and shelving can help when you’re in a rush looking for something. Arrange the space so that the storage is organized and logical. Put tools and heavier lawn care items in one area, holiday boxes in another, and so on.
Once you’ve completed these tasks, it’s time to move all of your stuff back into the garage in proper order. Try not to stack items on top of each other, creating clutter. Once you’re done you can enjoy the satisfaction of having space for you car again!
