Summer Cleaning: Transforming Your Garage into an Organized Space

Summer Cleaning for Garages

As summer arrives, it's time to revitalize your living space and lose the clutter accumulated over the winter months. While most focus on the interior of their homes, the garage often gets overlooked. With some strategic planning and a call to your local GarageExperts® team, your garage can become a functional and efficient storage space.

Declutter and Sort: Once you've assessed your space, it's time to declutter and sort through your belongings. Start by emptying your garage completely, if possible, so you can see exactly what you're working with. As you go through your items, ask yourself if you really need each one. Donate, sell, or discard anything that no longer serves a purpose or brings you joy.

Invest in Storage Solutions: With your garage cleared out, it's time to invest in GarageExperts® custom storage solutions that will make the most of your space. Consider a combination of cabinets, slatwall systems, and overhead racks to maximize vertical storage. Slatwall accessories are perfect for storing frequently used items within easy reach, as well as organizing tools, sports equipment, and small items. Cabinets and pantries can keep less-used items out of sight, while overhead racks are great for bulky or seasonal items that you do not need access to on a regular basis.

Assessing Your Space: When you work with GarageExperts®, we will take the time to assess your space. We measure the dimensions of your garage and take note of any fixed features such as windows, doors, and electrical outlets, and learn how you currently use the space and what changes you'd like to make. Whether you're aiming to create a workshop, a gym, or simply a clutter-free storage area, understanding your needs will guide us in designing the custom garage storage you have always wanted.

Regular Maintenance: Once your garage is organized using GarageExperts® custom storage solutions, make a commitment to regular maintenance to keep it looking its best. Schedule quarterly or semi-annual cleanouts to declutter and reorganize as needed. Take the time to sweep the floors and wipe down shelves and cabinets.
