Spring Cleaning For Your Garage

Spring is finally here, which means you’re probably thinking about doing a deep clean of your house. When you’re purging your home of clutter, packing away winter clothing, and sanitizing every room from top to bottom, it can be easy to forget the outdoor areas of your property. This spring, don’t shy away from your back patio, backyard shed, or your garage — after all, it’s often these spaces that could use the most work.

Donate, Sell, & Throw Away

The garage acts as a second storage room for many people, but this doesn’t have to be the case. If you’re the kind of person who dumps holiday decorations, hand-me-downs, pet supplies, and all sorts of other odds and ends in your garage, it’s time to make better use of your space and get rid of some stuff. Take advantage of the warmer weather and throw on some comfy clothes, open your garage door, and start sorting items into three piles: donate, sell, and throw away. List the “sell” items on Craigslist or eBay, or consider having a garage sale the following weekend. Then, either throw away the remaining items or find a new home for them.

Invest In Garage Storage

Odds are, you’re still going to want to keep some things in your garage, such as camping and hiking gear, gardening supplies, and of course, your woodshop. If this is the case, you’ll need to invest in a garage storage solution that helps you keep these things off the ground. Consider ordering some garage storage shelves or an overhead garage storage system to hold these belongings. Garage cabinets are another great option, as they make your space look and feel less cluttered while also keeping out insects, mice, and other summer pests. Garage organization is the key to reclaiming your space!

Recoat Your Garage Floor

If you’re like most people, your garage floor has probably seen better days. This is especially true for homeowners with pets (mostly cats) and vehicles with oil leaks, as these things can take a beating on your garage floor over time. Even the sun can damage your garage floor if it is exposed to UV rays for hours on end, which is common during the summer months. If you discover that your garage floor is stained, cracked, or peeling when you do you spring cleaning, it’s probably time for a fresh polyaspartic floor coating. Just imagine how nice your garage will look when you’ve gotten rid of all the clutter, installed a garage organization system, and made your garage floor look brand new!
