In many households, the garage tends to be one of the main places that becomes filled with clutter. This undervalued space can often end up being a storage room for items that you donít really want any more. If you're going to do a little life laundry, we have some garage cleaning tips to help you out.
Although this may appear daunting, the first step to cleaning your garage is to remove everything. This will not only provide you with a blank space but also help you to determine which size you need when you book a bin. Perth homeowners should empty all boxes and cartons and arrange each of the items into one of four designated areas; throw away, donate, sell or keep. This will give you a good idea of how much waste you need to dispose of and whether youíll need to make several trips to the donation point.
Book a Skip:
Now you have an idea of how much rubbish you want to get rid of you can book a skip. Most companies offer a variety of sizes, so you should be able to have a fairly accurate assessment of your needs. If you donít have a lot of time, you may prefer to book a skip bin before getting started, so you can throw rubbish away directly. If this is the case, opt for a larger bin, so you can avoid the inconvenience of trying to overload a small bin.
Once your skip is filled, you can start cleaning. Most garages donít get attention very often, so youíre likely to find a layer of dirt on most surfaces. Give the floor and walls a good brush down to remove any cobwebs and dust, then use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of this debris. Give the windows a good clean, so youíll have plenty of light to work with, and youíll be able to see any areas you may have missed.
Organise Your Storage:
Nowís a great time to organise your storage to hold all the items you want to keep. Storage units, shelves, hooks and bike racks can all be put to good use here. This will help you to create order, so each item can have a specific place. Put each item back in the garage and enjoy your new tidy and organised garage.
Cleaning out a garage can be challenging, but it can also be therapeutic. While youíll need to book a skip and spend a day or two completing the task, it is well worth the effort. You may even find you now have room for your car.
