Garage Spring Cleaning Tips: Part I

Tidy Garage with Epoxy FlooringYour garage can easily become a wasteland of obsolete items that you have been trying to forget about. Old paint cans, unused clothing, and various other odds and ends that no longer have a space in your home but you just don’t know what to do with. After a long winter – or perhaps several long winters – these items can pile up. Cleaning out the garage often gets deprioritized by other more pressing matters or simply by the desire to do literally anything else on a Saturday besides a daunting project that seems impossible. You owe it to yourself to finally tackle that garage cleanout so you can make the post of the space and experience the feeling of freedom that results. It is good for your home and good for your mental health. In Part I of our tips for cleaning out your garage, we will focus on what you can do to get started and gain momentum:

Create a Plan of Approach

The most difficult part of any project is getting started. You may feel unsure about where to begin. The good news is that before you start the physical action of cleaning, a very helpful and sometimes very necessary component is simply planning. Create a checklist of what needs to be done and consider what your goals are for the end result. Maybe even draw out a diagram to help you visualize your newly organized space.

After you have a plan, then you can roll up your sleeves and embark on the adventure of cleaning. Keep in mind, you do not have to do it all in one day. Depending on the size of your garage and the amount of clutter, you may want to break it up into more manageable stages. With each finished stage you can give yourself a reward like going out for ice cream while allowing yourself to enjoy the rest of the weekend or whatever day off you have.

Once your garage is cleaned out, considering an upgrade to epoxy floors might help you keep the space organized and clean. Contact us by visiting Floorguard.com to learn more about how we can help.
