Fall is the perfect time for cleaning your garage. The weather is comfortable for spending a weekend outside. Plus, now that the summer is nearing an end, you can take inventory and decide what items have seen their last season. Ready to get started? Use this step-by-step guide to make the process easier.

Step-by-Step Guide for Cleaning Your Garage

Step 1: Choose the right time

You’ll likely need more than a couple hours to clean out your garage if you haven’t done it in a while. Many people decide to set aside a whole day or an entire weekend. When considering your timing, be sure to look at the weather! You’ll need to take everything out of your garage in order to clean it, so it’s best to postpone if rain is in the forecast.

Step 2: Get everything out of the garage

The easiest way to start is to pull everything out of your garage and onto your driveway. This gives you a blank slate.

Step 3: Categorize your items

Now that you can easily see all of your items, split them into three groups: keep, throw away, donate/sell.

Step 4: Cleaning Your Garage

How often is your garage completely bare? Probably only as often as you clean it out. Take this time to thoroughly clean it by sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping.

Step 5: Establish and Organization System

Before purchasing anything, take an inventory of what you’re planning to keep and plan your organizational system around that. Make the most of your space by installing shelves, hooks, overhead storage, and whatever other systems you need in order to maximize your storage capacity.

Step 6: Return Your “Keep” Items to the Garage

Put everything you’re keeping into its designated space and inform the family of the new system to help keep it cleaner for longer.
