Did you resolve to keep your home clean in 2023?
May we remind you that throwing everything in the garage doesn’t exactly make for a good cleaning strategy? After all, the garage is also a part of your home and deserves just as much TLC as the rest of the house.
It’s time to give your garage a neat look by cleaning and organizing it. Get rid of the unnecessary stuff and clutter by following the simple steps in this guide.
Let’s find out how.
Get off on the right foot
Is your stuff lying in the dust, or are you having difficulty organizing Christmas and New Year décor? You can struggle to find space to place other stuff. Regardless of the reason, organizing your garage can enable you to get rid of clutter and storage problems.
For most people, the problem is where to start. You can begin the process by following the steps below
The first step should be to decide a day and time to execute this task. You should be aware that it will take a day or two, so perhaps a holiday or weekend is the best time.
Secondly, try to bring family members and friends on board. Doing everything alone will only leave you tired and exhausted ––accepting help from people will save you time and energy.
The last step is to make a list of categories in which you want to organize your stuff in the garage. This will allow you to work more efficiently. Once you have worked on the above three factors, the process becomes much more manageable.
Let’s proceed to the next part.
Know what not to put in your garage
A messy garage can lead to accidents – items lying around increase the likelihood of stepping on or tripping over the mess. Keep safety and security needs in mind when organizing. The end decision is yours to make, what you want to place in your garage. However, we recommend keeping the below factors in mind:
- Try to avoid storing paint in the garage because too much temperature fluctuation can damage paint.
- Fuels and flammables like propane are hazardous in closed spaces. A little mistake can ignite flames, so it is better to place it somewhere away from the hands of small children.
- Lastly, avoid storing food items (including pet food). If you are planning to do so, place them in containers. This way your food supplies are safe from animals and bugs.
