How to clean out a garage full of junk
Garages can quickly fill up with junk quickly and when they do, finding what you need can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. If that’s the case for you, follow these steps to clean out your garage and bring back it’s functionality:
- Give yourself ample time. Rushing through a cleaning job will only amount to more work that needs to be done. Be prepared to spend a few days cleaning your garage.
- Separate your items into categories. Your garage should operate similar to a retail store where each section has its own items. Move your outdoor gear together, your sporting equipment together, your garden tools together, and create any other categories that make sense. Once you have categorized your items, evaluate what needs to go and what can stay. The more thorough you are in this step, the easier the rest of the garage cleanout process will be.
- Discard, sell, or donate items that don’t belong. Place any remaining items in a discard pile to be dealt with later. Turn your junk into someone else’s treasure by selling or donating it if it’s usable.
- Hire extra help. While you might be able to do it on your own, our professionals at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? are trained to handle cleanouts with ease. This way you can enjoy a clean garage without the additional hassle.
- Figure out the ideal garage layout. Now that you have separated all of your items into distinct piles, determine where these sections are going to live.Due to the space needed to park your car,,you may need to install shelves to get some items off the ground.
- Put everything in its place. Now that you’ve thought about where things are going to fit, it’s time to put the puzzle together. Be patient, things don’t always work out perfectly the first time. The important thing to remember is that all of this is going to benefit you in the future, so take your time to do it right.
- Call junk removal to discard your unwanted items or do it yourself. Most of the time, the junk in our garage is too big for municipal waste services. If this is the case for you, call your local 1-800-GOT-JUNK? to responsibly handle your garage waste
