Spring Cleaning Time

No one looks forward to the annual spring cleaning, especially when it comes to the hot garage. But what if you could organize your garage once and for all, putting systems in place that would help keep your garage neat and tidy? Check out these tips for Orlando garage organization and learn what’s best for you.

Remove Everything

Pick a warm, sunny day when you have extra time and energy. Take everything out of your garage, including items hung on the walls, stored in the rafters, and tucked into corners.

Group Like Things

Group similar items, such as sports equipment, camping gear, tools, and gardening supplies. Then sort through each of these piles and decide what you want to keep, donate, sell, or throw away by asking yourself two simple questions: “Do I love this?” and “When was the last time I used it?” Be brutally honest. If you don’t absolutely love an item and haven’t used it in the past two years, it’s time to part with it.


Sweep and hose down or power-wash the garage. Brush cobwebs out of corners, and scrub any oil stains with a degreaser. Now that your space is empty, this is a great time to invest in beautiful and durable epoxy floors.

Build New Organizing Systems

Now that you’ve sorted through your belongings, assess your storage needs and decide which organization system is best. Gladiator cabinets offer superior strength, standard solid rubber casters, and can store a variety of objects. Slat wall storage systems are perfect to hang hooks, baskets and bins, and overhead storage is always a great choice. Choose from 9 shelf sizes and 2 height adjustment ranges to free up valuable work and activity space.

Bring It All Back In

Once you know where everything will live and your organization is installed, bring the items you’re keeping back into the garage. Place frequently-used items within easy reach. Seldom-used items can be stored in more out-of-the-way spots.
