We often neglect our garages when it comes to cleaning. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Yet, how many times have you tripped over that old box or found something that you thought you lost 5 years ago? Probably every time you’ve ventured in there! Well, here’s some tips from on how to tackle your cleaning.
Where to begin:
- Remove everything out of the garage
- Take inventory
- Organize into 3 piles
- What to keep
- For garage sale
Tip: If you haven’t used it in a year, get rid of it!
You’ll need a broom, tools, ladder for reach, and Concrobium house & Deck Wash and Concrobium Mold Stain Eraser.
- Clean top to bottom
- Use a broom for any cobwebs
- Check light fixtures, garage door hardware, window defects
- Sweep debris out of the garage to prep for washing
- Attach Concrobium House & Deck Wash to your garden hose to clean walls and floor. Use Concrobium Mold Stain Eraser for any stubborn mold stains
- Get creative with storage ideas! Shelves, racks, hooks will help you keep more organized!
- Place items in clear, plastic bins if you can
- Use Concrobium Moisture Grabbers pouches inside of bins, closets to absorb excessive moisture
- Place long term storage items (keepsakes, documents, old clothing, etc.) in the back of the garage
- Seasonal items (decorations, lawn care, etc.) can stay closer to the middle
- Monthly items can be kept upfront so they’re easily found and accessible
- Paint, hazardous chemicals should be kept high and/or locked away for safety.
Soon, you’ll realize how much extra space you’ll have once your garage is clean and organized. And don’t forget how much money you can make from selling your old, unused items.
