The last place at home that you want to clean up is your garage. It looks so messy and disgusting. Cleaning it up might also take a lot of time. However, if you have to tidy that area up, you have no choice but to do the dirty work. These tips will help you organize your garage.
Take all items out
The first step to declutter your garage is to remove everything inside it. You will also find it easier to determine which items to return inside if you have an idea of how huge the space is. You can also decide if you need different types of storage to organize the items once you return them.
You need to set criteria
After you take some of the items out, you have to determine which of them will go back in—set criteria on your items to keep. Otherwise, you will decide that all of them are important. Ask yourself if it’s best to get rid of a specific item, or if you’re still going to use it. If you have no intention of using it any time soon, you need to dispose of it. Start by removing items you didn’t use once in the past year, things that are no longer working, and tools that you can easily buy or borrow in the future.
Sell your old car
Perhaps, your old car is taking up the most space in your garage. It’s time to let go of it. You no longer use it, and repairing it might cost you a lot of money. Instead of allowing it to decompose in your garage, you should find companies that will pay cash for junk cars. The amount is good enough for you to consider buying a new car in the future.
The tools might be all over the place because you don’t have a container. You need to purchase containers where you can keep them after use. You should also have one for chemicals you use for maintaining your car. Apart from making it easy to organize the items in the garage, it would help if you also did it for safety purposes. You don’t want your children to come across these items and hurt themselves accidentally. Hanging things is also an option. You can use the walls to store some items.
It takes time to clean a garage. You can also expect the process to be messy. Before you start, you need to come up with a plan. It allows you to be more systematic in dealing with the process. You should also allot an entire day to clean up the garage. Make sure that by the end of the day, you finish everything up. Otherwise, it will take time before you can resume. You can also hire someone to help with deep cleaning the garage. After you emptied it, it’s easier to deep clean the entire area.
