Spring cleaning is around the corner, and while for many, the first thought is the kitchen, bathrooms, and other areas around the house, you shouldn’t overlook your garage. For many families, the garage can quickly become a storage space for your home, and it can get crowded in there. A strong cleaning strategy for a garage can keep things clean & organized. Here are a few tips on how to clean your garage this spring!
Empty Out Your Garage
One piece of advice when cleaning your garage is to fully empty it into the yard. It might surprise you how much fits inside your garage once you see it all outside. A large difficulty with cleaning garages is that the junk is often buried behind or under other items. The items we need the least tend to end up trapped between layers of other things. Emptying everything out will be easier to see what needs to be kept and what needs to be removed.
Organize Your Garage Into Multiple Piles
The three piles always recommended when cleaning any room are junk/trash, keep, and donate/sell. Organizing items into these three categories makes it easier to know what will go back into your garage, what is going to goodwill or sold at a garage sale, and what is going straight to a dump. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself, “when was the last time we used this”? Following that, “what condition is this in”? If you haven’t used an item for years and even forgotten about it, it is probably ready to move on to another home or a dump.
Rent A Dumpster For Your Garage Cleaning Project
One of the best advice for any cleaning project, especially if you are getting rid of a lot of junk or large pieces of furniture/equipment, is to get a roll-off dumpster. Busy Bee Disposal will let you rent a roll-off dumpster and can transport the garbage for you. If you are dealing with a lot of scrap metal, consider a scrap metal dumpster instead of a garbage/trash dumpster.
Re-Organize Your Garage After You Are Done
Once the dumpster is headed to the dump and everything you wanted to sell/donate is gone, you should consider reorganizing your garage. Make sure that space is used effectively so that essential items don’t get buried and forgotten in the future.
