5 Tips For Cleaning Out Your Garage This Summer

Summer Garage Organization Tips From Louisiana Custom Closets

Garages are spaces that are often taken for granted, but this oft-neglected area of the home is an essential storage facility that will either make or break your entire organization process.

We don't intend for it to fill up so quickly, but it does -- and fast. Between boxes of Christmas decorations, tubes of zip ties, and half-broken bicycles, there seems to be no end to the clutter, nor a clear path to the item you intended to get in the first place!

To change this, LCC recommends that homeowners do a deep clean of their garage spaces every summer. While this process isn't necessarily an 'exciting' or 'fun' activity, it will absolutely enable homeowners to find their items faster, get organized quicker, and have lots more fun in the future.

Garage Organization Tips -- One Step At A Time!

Cleaning out your garage doesn't need to be a painful experience. By following these five helpful tips, Louisiana homeowners can quickly and easily condense their yearly garage acquisitions, and maybe even learn something new in the process.

  1. Block off enough time to complete your deep clean. Don't expect to get the process done in an hour or two. Try and set aside an afternoon or a weekend to get the process started.
  2. Remove everything from the garage and place it out on the lawn. This allows you to see every last item you own, and make decisions about them moving forward.
  3. Don't be afraid to throw items away, or even donate them if they are in good condition. Having a garage sale is an excellent way to de-clutter the garage and re-stock your wallet all at the same time.
  4. Recruit your friends and family members for a little help during the sorting process. After all, many hands make light work!
  5. Sometimes your organization woes don't have anything to do with what you have, and everything to do with where you live. Invest in quality garage organization solutions that prioritize a balance between your possessions and your lifestyle needs.
