Clean Your Garage After the Holidays

After the holidays, it’s normal to feel like your home and your garage has far more clutter than it did less than a month earlier. Getting things organized quickly is always a priority! The sooner the house is clean and clutter free, the sooner your house will start to feel like home again. Unfortunately for most people, finding space for all those new toys, goodies, and decorations can be tough. With the right Orlando garage storage systems, it doesn’t have to be.

Make Use of Wall Space
Ordinarily, items stored in the garage line the walls, but still take up lots of floor space. This can make it difficult to maneuver around your gear, car, and work area. Making slatwall systems part of your storage will help keep items off of the floor while also giving your outdoor gear a new home. Hang bikes, kayaks, sports balls, and other equipment on the wall on their own or wall-mounted storage bins. For added convenience, you can even mount a cleanup caddy to help keep cleaning supplies organized and out of the house.

Install Cabinets
Nothing makes a garage feel more cluttered than it really is like having loose items and countless boxes lining the perimeter of the room. Worse, these items are at risk for damage from moisture buildup, pests, and even general wear and tear as they get kicked around on the floor. Instead, install garage cabinets and keep those little items safe and organized. You’ll get rid of the clutter, increase your available storage space, and keep the garage looking clean no matter how messy things get inside the cabinets.

Upgrade to Overhead Storage
For items you only use once or twice a year, finding a good place to keep them at home can be a challenge. Instead of stashing holiday decorations in the closet, install an overhead storage system and keep them in your garage. The ONRAX 14 gauge steel frame is sturdy enough to support up to 800 pounds, so you’ll never have to worry about things crashing down on your car. Keep the Christmas tree and ornament boxes, unused luggage, and even out-of-season clothes safe and off the ground.
