It’s that time of year again – spring cleaning! Many homeowners like to take advantage of the warming weather to deep clean their homes and complete outside projects that haven’t been worked on all winter. For many, that includes cleaning out the garage. Whether your garage is a cluttered mess, or it just needs some light organizing, now is the perfect time to tackle it. Read on for some tips from your friends at Cash 4 Cars.

How to Clean Out Your Garage

Take Everything Out and Make a Plan

The first step to cleaning out your garage is to figure out what is in it, and to do that, you need to take everything out. Pick a section of your garage and start pulling everything out, taking stock of what you need to keep and what can be donated or thrown away. Once your garage is cleared out, you can start to envision how you want everything organized as you put it back in. Put similar things together and invest in some quality storage bins for a clean final look.

Deep Clean the Space

While your garage is empty, take the time to deep clean it. Sweep and mop the floors, dust the shelves, and wipe down the walls or cabinets with a mild household detergent. It might feel like a big job, but you’ll be glad you took the time when you see all the dirt and dust disappear.

Put Everything Away

Finally, you’re ready to put your organizational plan to work. Go slow and make sure everything has a designated space in your newly cleaned garage. Be sure to throw away or donate anything you haven’t used in the last year, or broken items you’ve been meaning to fix but probably won’t. And, if organizing doesn’t come naturally to you, don’t be afraid to go online, as there are countless resources out there to help!
