5 Tips To Spring Clean Your Garage
Here’s How You Can Make Good Use of Your Time While Stuck at Home
With a growing number of states ordering their residents to stay at home amid the increasing number of infections caused by the novel coronavirus, millions of people are finding themselves stuck at home with nothing to do.
If you are one of them, why don’t you try to clean out your garage? While you were too busy to do that during normal times because of work and other commitments, these stay-at-home days are a good time to finally clean up your garage. You might even get extra pairs of hands from family members who are feeling restless at home and may want to help you out.
Pro Tips to Clean Up Your Garage
While the intent of the stay-at-home orders by state governors is to ensure the safety of the general public from the novel coronavirus, you may want to find productive use of your idle time while you’re stuck at home. For instance, you may want to finally give your garage a thorough scrubbing and cleaning.
Here are the things you need to consider in cleaning up your garage:
- Ask for help.
The stay-at-home order is your perfect excuse to get your teen off the phone and get them into doing something productive like helping you clean up your garage. Make it fun by blasting out music that you can all appreciate so that you don’t feel like you and your helper don’t feel like you’re working at all. Set up a plan on what you want to accomplish to keep track of your progress, but don’t be a slave driver.
You may have accumulated a lot of stuff over the years. However, you don’t need to hold on to everything. You need to create space, which means you have to let go of some items. Sort your things into several categories like keep, donate, recycle, trash or sell.
- Assess your storage and organization.
After sorting out your stuff, you might be amazed to see more space in your garage. To maintain the order, you need to assess your storage technique. Try to keep things in their rightful places as much as possible. This way, you won’t have a hard time cleaning up the next time around.
- Clean and inspect garage door opener.
Cleaning and ensuring that your garage door opener is functional will save you a ton of headache later on. While cleaning the garage, make sure the door is fully functioning, including its safety features.
- Hose down and air out your garage.
If you haven’t gotten around to cleaning your garage for a while, the next step to decluttering is airing out your garage by opening and cleaning all the windows and doors to get rid of that musty smell. Hose down the floor.
