Although the frigid Chicago temperatures may not always reflect spring, the season officially starts on March 20. Less than a month away, it’s time to turn our attention to spring cleaning our entire house – garage included. As Chicagoland garage builders, we understand the importance of having a clean garage. If you’ve been putting off giving your garage a deep clean, here’s your sign that this year is your year. We’ve rounded up some tips to make sure your spring cleanly goes as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
Empty Your Garage
This first step is very important. Taking everything out of your garage is a great way to simultaneously purge unnecessary items as well as thoroughly clean all of the nooks and crannies. Sweep the floor, clean the windows and wipe down shelves. From there, you will be able to better sort your materials into specific piles such as sell, donate, keep and toss.
Save Space However Possible
Mount bicycles, utilize shelving units and hang everything on the wall when possible. You’ll want every free square inch you can get when all’s said and done.
Make sure there are no accessible entrances that pesky animals can burrow into. Try to keep trash out of your garage and use a pesticide if necessary.
Our Chicagoland garage builders want you to have a successful and organized spring season, and decluttering your garage is an important step in doing so. If you have questions, please contact us today!
