September 15th, 2018

Now is the perfect time to get your garage in working order before the winter weather starts. Cleaning out and organizing your garage can allow you to actually park a car in your garage or use it as the work space you have always needed. To help you with the process of cleaning out your garage you will want to rent a storage unit from US 60 Self Storage in Mesa for all those items that are taking up too much space. Below are some tips to help you declutter your garage.

Start with Cleaning
When pulling out and sorting through everything you have accumulated in your garage, take the opportunity to clean every surface. You will notice how dusty and grimy your shelving and garage floor has become while storing all of your valuables. Start with a clean slate and wipe down every surface and sweep the floor of any dirt, cobwebs, and debris.

Sort your Seasonal Items
As you are going through and sorting items it may help to categorize them by season. For those seasons well off, consider placing those items in a storage unit at US 60 Self Storage in Mesa. Our units will give you the needed space for those seasonal items that are just sitting in your garage. Such items include decorations, sporting goods, and clothing.

Work Up
While there is limited floor space in a garage, it is often smart to think up. Wall space and even ceiling space can be utilized for organizational storage for those items you often use. Consider hanging your bikes from the ceiling and building shelves along the walls to maximize storage space. Peg boards are the perfect solution to display and organize tools for ease of access.

Consider Insulation
A garage is not often protected from the elements as well as it should be. If your garage does not have insulation, you might want to consider having some put in. The insulation in your garage will protect the items that are more sensitive to temperature change. This will also keep a draft from coming into your home if the garage is attached.
