Start 2020 with a Clutter-Free Garage, Part II
In part I of this blog we talked about beginning your garage decluttering project by sorting your items into sections of things you will keep, donate, sell, and throw away, and then giving the garage a thorough cleaning. Next we will go through the steps to put the items you will keep in their new locations either prior to or after installing your epoxy guard floor covering.
Frequently used items: Items that are used the most often should be the most accessible. Hang leashes and shopping bags on hooks, designate an easy-to-get-to corner for yard and cleaning tools to stand up in, and so on.
Items used together: Designate spaces for things like car cleaning products and tools, craft projects, and yard care equipment to be grouped together so that they can all be grabbed at once when they are needed.
Big items: Designate one or two corners for big items like lawn mowers, but be sure to leave a path so that they can be removed easily when you need to use them.
Rarely used items: Place rarely used items like holiday decorations and snow gear in the harder-to-reach spots. If there is attic access in your garage, this is an ideal spot for holiday decorations that only get used once a year.
Hang what you can: Hanging the items that can be hung up helps to save other spaces for other uses. Bicycles and tools like shovels, rakes, and more can be hung on the wall where they are easy to spot and also out of the way.
Start 2020 off with a decluttered garage! Whether you already applied an epoxy guard floor covering to your garage, or have plans to in the future, this is a great complementary step to ensuring your garage is the best space it can be.
My garage was so cluttered and a total mess, I was always embarrassed to have the door open! Not anymore!! Floorguard® helped me design a perfect system for my family, it’s amazing!! Now I keep my garage door open for all to see, it’s organized, and absolutely beautiful!!!

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
