How to Tidy Up your Garage

Summer is the perfect time of year to give your garage the tidying-up it needs. To help you in the process we at Millcreek Self Storage have gathered some organization tips for you to try. You can also utilize one of our many sized storage units for the items you just can’t seem to find the room for.

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.

Seasonal Items

As you are going through and sorting items it may help to categorize them by season. For those seasons a few months away, consider placing those items in a storage unit at Millcreek Self Storage. 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.

Think 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.

Take advantage of the warm weather these summer months have to offer by cleaning out and organizing your garage. You may be able to actually park your car in your garage this winter. To help you accomplish this you can trust Millcreek Self Storage to provide you with the storage space you need for the items you aren’t currently using.
