5 Spring Cleaning Garage Storage Tips

Now is the perfect time to step up and tackle your garage organization, especially if has passed the point of messy into becoming pure chaos. Don't worry, though—here are 5 spring cleaning garage storage tips that will make this task manageable and even enjoyable.

1. Clear Out Trash

The first step in your garage storage adventure is to bring in a trash can and do a thorough sweep for anything you can toss in the trash or recycle.

This will help cut down on the clutter and improve the general cleanliness of your garage. We’d recommend using the mindset of tossing away with items that are broken, outdated, or just not useful anymore, rather than trying to salvage anything you can(do you really need the leftover planks from your latest backyard project?).

2. Air Out Your Garage

Next, if possible, open any windows or doors connected to your garage. This simple step can help get rid of any lingering smells that may have been coming from trash that you just cleared out or forgotten items with unique odors. Fresh air circulation will make your cleaning efforts feel more refreshing and less stuffy.

3. Surface Cleaning

Now it's time to make your garage spotless. Depending on how long it's been since your last cleaning session, you might need to spray the flooring with a hose, wipe down tables or surfaces with cleaning wipes, or even do a light dusting on the hard-to-reach shelves.

4. Sort and Organize

Trust us, having your garage sorted will make things much easier in the long run. Categorize your items: store seasonal items and decorations in one place, tools in another, and sports equipment in another area. Clear labels and dedicated spaces for each category will save you time and stress when you're searching for something later on.

5. Invest in a New Custom Garage Organization System

If you've done all of the above and still feel like you're not getting the most out of your garage, or if you find that you still have large build-ups of clutter, it may be time to rethink your current garage storage solutions.
