Spring cleaning can mean more than taking care of the main house. It may also be a smart idea to tackle your garage, as well. Of course, for most of us, this isn’t the most appealing idea in the world. Chances are, your garage is packed from floor to ceiling with gardening tools, hockey equipment, bikes, Christmas decorations, that tire pump you last saw in 2004 that’s currently buried under five feet of dust and debris…Tidying up the living room is one thing. Tackling the beast known as your garage is another matter altogether. Nonetheless, it’s a job that must be done. Consider our quick guide to spring cleaning your garage, and get to work!

How to Spring Clean Your Garage

When it comes to spring cleaning your garage, you definitely want to move forward sooner, rather than later. That first step is going to be the toughest, but once you get started, you’re going to find things to be pretty straightforward. It’s all about taking things one step at a time, leaning on local resources willing and able to help, and digging in! You can make things even easier on yourself by keeping in mind the following:

Time for a Purge

This can be the most difficult part of spring cleaning your garage. At the same time, it’s a crucial step. This is the point in which you are going to want to bring out absolutely every item that is currently inside your garage. Every wire, every broken tool that you’re never going to fix, and every single old magazine. It’s time to bring these things into the light, and it’s time to give them an honest assessment. Do you really need them in your life?

Think About the Space

At some point, you’re going to begin to see the light at the end of the project tunnel. You’re going to start thinking about the space. That’s good. Start considering the future of the space. What can you do to make it more organized and prevent this buildup from happening again? When you have a definitive plan and a visualization of what the space can be, the odds of your garage becoming cluttered beyond belief again will significantly decrease.

Get Others Involved

Offer to help out a friend, in exchange for having them give you a hand. Believe it or not, but tackling a major cleaning project with friends and family can make for a great time. Just be sure to pony up with pizza and/or beer when the hard work is done.
