If the words “spring cleaning,” makes your ears shriek like fingernails going down a chalkboard, don’t worry you’re not alone. Spring cleaning is a necessary evil in life but there are things you can do to make it easier. Cleaning out your garage will make your home life more organized and if you keep up on it you might only have to do it every few years. Let’s look at some easy steps to clean out your garage this spring:
Empty everything out. Yes, everything. If you really want your garage to be clean you need to deep clean it. If there is a layer of gunk that fills everything you place in your garage, you’re never going to get rid of it unless you remove everything from your garage.
Once you’ve removed everything it will be easier for you to get deep into the cracks, clean out the dead bugs, mop up the oil stains, and sweep. First thing is first; sweep everything all the dirt off the garage floor. You might want to consider epoxy coat flooring which is hard, durable, and easy to clean.

If you find holes in the way or cracks in the floor, clean them out and prevent harmful bugs from getting into the cracks. Also clean all the items you removed from the garage.
Reorganize your garage by placing items in a purposeful way. Invest in storage bins, bike racks, hooks and shelves. Donate old items that you don’t use anymore and evaluate whether it’s time to upgrade with other items.
Cleaning a garage is a large undertaking. At the end of the day if you put the time and effort into making a part of your home and not just a place to store junk, it will serve a better purpose.
