No body can live with dirty and survive it over time. No matter where your garage may be situated, once you leave it to dirty and other micro organism and insects, you are probably going to live in fear. A lot of things that may be growing and training themselves in the garage can not co-exist with human beings and even if they can, it is messy.
The importance of keeping a clean garage is neglected by most home owners. Some see it as if it were never an important task to undergo. Nurturing this thought, they may have left the garage for a very long time and may even cancel any thought that says 'pick something from the garage'. At a point you will notice that it is not only that there is noting nothing to pick from the garage but the fear of stepping into such dungeon.
A well organized and clean garage appeals to the eye. And garage cleaning is a good exercise to practice. While you may engaged with several other activities and always run at the thought of cleaning your garage, in the next few minutes I will show how simple and easy you should clean that garage and organize it again.
Arrange the items- You might take out a time or period and bring all there is in your garage, perhaps early in the morning so you won't have any discouraging thought or feel tired. Separate your tools from their supporting equipment and sort every item in the order of importance. Bring out everything and replace misplace items. All items belonging to one group or used for a particular purpose should be kept together. Remember there are no wastes; every thing you decide to throw away can actually be recycled. Some items can be kept in the floor while others will require other places. Keep them aside until you decide and get enough containers built.
Separate according to usage- The use of certain items are seasonal while others are required frequently. There should be a special rack to hang lawn maintenance tools and other items to keep them accessible and yet out of the way. If it is winter place snow blowers, ice scrapers, snow shovels and also skis, snowboards and sleds together. Items required during warm seasons should be kept in a separate cabinet. At the beginning of every season, bring out as much items as are required for that season and make them readily available. Other items as well should be kept in a separate cabinet where they will be safe and not constitute harm to anybody.
Create a space- You need enough space in your garage. While cleaning and organizing your garage, you should try to create enough space that can accommodate a table or bench, especially if you use your garage for workshop. Also consider relocating your trash bin nearer to the garage so you can easily throw trashes away without keeping them your garage.
