How to Clean Your Garage: Helpful Tips That Will Make the Job Easier

How's your garage looking these days? Could you even park your car in there if you tried? If it's not in the best condition and in need of a massive clean-up, don't worry! There are plenty of ways to clean up and organize your garage so you can turn it into a usable space again instead of just bulk storage. Here are some of the best tips and tricks to help you clean out your garage.

Empty Your Garage

Take everything from your garage and organize it in your driveway or on your lawn. This will help you see just how much stuff you have. Having everything laid out in front of you will help decide what is most important to keep. There will probably be some things you likely haven't seen in years.

Sort Through Your Stuff

You'll want to group items into these three categories: Junk, Keep, and Sell. Try to be as ruthless as possible about what stays and what goes to avoid having to do another massive clean-up in the near future. Try to keep Sell items to a minimum to prevent them from quickly becoming clutter if they don't sell fast enough or you forget to list them.

Clean Your Garage

Before putting everything back into your garage, give it a good sweep, vacuum, and mop to give yourself a fresh start.

Get Organized

The best way to get the most use out of your garage is to keep it organized. Investing in some shelving units, storage bins, and modular wall organizers are great ways to keep your space tidy by keeping things up off the floor. Set aside an area in your garage for the few items you want to sell as well so they don’t get lost in the mix.

Return The Keep Items To Your Garage

Now that you've got your space organized, it's time to start putting things back into your garage. If you end up feeling like there's still way too much stuff in there, try taking a second look at what you're keeping. Try to remember the last time you used the particular item and when the next time you use it might be to determine if it’s really worth keeping.

List The Items You Want To Sell

Take well-lit photos of everything you wish to sell and list them on sites like Nextdoor, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace. Determine how long you're willing to hold onto these items before they end up turning into clutter again.

After you've gotten your space organized, it's time to have the junk hauled away. If you need junk removal in the Redding, California area, call One Stop Redding Junk Removal. We’re happy to haul away all those unwanted items and junk in your garage that are taking up valuable space.
