It’s important to make sure that every inch of your home looks amazing throughout the year. This is something that you can ensure is the case during spring cleaning, and also set a foundation to build on for the rest of the year. If you’re wondering about how to make the garage in particular sparkle, read on. You’ll see some of the ways in which you can ensure that it looks beautiful and functional all through.
Come Up with a Plan
The first step is to come up with a plan of how you intend to proceed. A good plan should have an outline of the intended steps you intend to take and how you’re going to carry each one out. This way, you may also be able to set a workable budget that will guide you on the amount of money you need to set aside. Remember details such as that the average American vehicle is going to spend 95% of its lifetime parked, according to Fortune Magazine. Such facts may help you remember to work on something like the floor of the garage, which typically bears the greatest brunt. As it’s the most prone to wear and tear, it’s also one of the most important areas to focus on while cleaning. If it needs any repairs, you can spot them more easily when the floor is clean and clear of clutter.
Get Help if You Need it
Depending on the size of your garage, how many items you have inside it, and how much time you can spare to get it into good shape, you may need to get some assistance. Even if you’re one of the people who, according to the EPA, spends roughly 90% of their time indoors, mostly inside their homes, you may not have the time, skills, and tools to get your garage into shape all by yourself. This is why you may benefit from calling a professional to your home to help you to get it into good shape. They’ll do so fast and easily, leaving you with little to do in the form of touch-ups.
Additionally, considering the importance of your home’s structural integrity, it’s advisable to understand why you need a foundation inspection, especially if your garage is attached to your home. Regular inspections ensure that any potential issues are addressed promptly, maintaining the overall safety and value of your property.
Install More Storage
Since people typically acquire more property the longer they stay in a given property, you stand to benefit from adding more storage when you get the chance to do so. The garage is typically one of the best spaces for you to think of when you want to add more storage to your home. From shelves and cabinets to working surfaces on which you can place items you need, there are many options to choose from when deciding on the kind of storage to add to your home. For the surfaces in your garage, note that Countertop Advisor shares a general rule of thumb that states that your new countertops are going to increase the value of your home by about three times.
Inspect and Clean Your Garage Door
Don’t forget about your garage door, which can accumulate a lot of dust and grime with frequent use. Rinse the panels down with a hose and use a soapy sponge to wipe them down. Clean both the inside and the outside in order to ensure that you address the entire door. Apply lubricant where it’s needed so you can ensure that the garage door will continue to function as it should. When you do this, you’ll have cleaned every part of your garage well.
Use these tips to ensure that your garage and the entire home look amazing after spring cleaning. You’ll enjoy the enhanced curbside appeal and functional improvement that your home enjoys as a result. Remember to take safety precautions and avoid getting water near electrical outlets and you’ll be good to go!
