Spring Cleaning Tips for the Garage and Driveway

Spring represents a time of rebirth and that means it’s time to organize and clean your home.  A big part of spring cleaning involves the garage, the shed, driveway and any other space that gets a lot of use in the warmer months.  Below are a few ideas and tips to help you clean and organize your garage and clean your driveway.

1.) Recruit a friend and the job will seem easier. You could clean and organize your place this weekend and do theirs the following weekend.

 

2.) Be prepared to get rid of unwanted or unused items. Assess how much you have in your garage that you use on a regular basis. Anything covered in dust from last year can probably be packed away.  Also, consider having a yard sale if you have unwanted power or hand tools, as there is always demand for those items.

3.) As you size up what you store in your garage, determine the best way to organize your items. Do you only need to separate small things, like craft materials, jewelry, screws, nuts, bolts, nails and screwdrivers?  A color coded system of storage bins (D1163244) is what’s best.  If you have power tools cluttering your work bench and garage floor, it’s a good idea to install shelving.  Either heavy duty wire shelving (D1101222) or open steel shelving (D1170895) will work depending on how much you have and how heavy it is.

4.) Don’t clean and organize your garage only to have it return to its messy conditions. Ever hear the expression “plan twice, build once?”  Think of organizing your garage like this:  “organize once, reorganize never again.

5.) A pressure washer (D1774621) is not only a good idea for cleaning your siding and patio, but also a method to remove paint and other stains that have accumulated over time on your driveway. Various attachments and cleaners are on the market to help you do a thorough job.  Once you finish, inspect your driveway for cracks.  Is it time to have it resealed?
