Reclaim Your Space with Eagle Cleanup
The Garage: An ideal parking spot for your car during the cold winter months, but also a space that can be cluttered, messy, and full of junk.
As the winter chill sets in and outdoor activities become limited, it’s the perfect time to turn your attention to an often-neglected space – the garage. Transforming your garage into an organized and functional space can be a rewarding winter project that you will be glad you tackled before the New Year, and Eagle Cleanup is here to help.
The garage is often filled with old furniture and appliances, broken exercise/sports equipment, and boxes of seasonal decor that take up valuable space and leave you with an area of your home that you are not able to use efficiently. Now is the time to call Eagle Cleanup to help clear out your garage this winter so you can take full advantage of the space you have. Before you call us, here are a few things you can do to prepare:
- Sort and Declutter: Begin by removing everything from your garage. This may seem overwhelming, but it’s an essential step in decluttering. As you go through your belongings, categorize items into three piles – keep, donate, and discard. Be ruthless in your decision-making; if you haven’t used an item in the past year, consider letting it go!
- Clean and Repair: Once your garage is emptied, take the opportunity to clean and repair the space. Sweep the floors, dust surfaces, and tackle any cobwebs or dirt accumulated over time. Check for and fix any structural issues, such as leaks or damaged walls. A fresh, clean foundation will make organizing much more enjoyable.
- Organize with Zones: Divide your garage into zones based on functionality. Create designated areas for tools, sports equipment, gardening supplies, and seasonal items. Invest in storage solutions such as shelving units, cabinets, and pegboards to keep each zone organized and easily accessible.
- Create a Maintenance Plan: To prevent your garage from becoming cluttered again, establish a maintenance plan. Regularly assess the space, putting items back in their designated zones, and addressing any new clutter promptly. This proactive approach will help you sustain the cleanliness and organization achieved during your winter cleaning.
- Check Functionality: Once everything is moved back into the garage, make sure you have plenty of space to park your car, move around, and access everything easily – you don’t want the space to be too tight! If the space is hard to get around, you may not be motivated to put things in their designated spot, so make sure your space is functional for you.
Now that you have sorted what can be thrown away, call Eagle Cleanup and we will take any old furniture, boxes, appliances, yard equipment and more off your hands so your garage can officially be junk free.
Cleaning out your garage during the winter months is a productive and satisfying endeavor. By decluttering, organizing, and implementing smart storage solutions, you can transform your garage into a functional and safe space for your belongings and vehicles. Use the winter season to your advantage, and call Eagle Cleanup to help you reclaim your garage this winter!
