You need to learn to keep your garage tidy. Part of this involves making sure that your equipment and tools are secured. For example if you have a large ZTR mower sitting in the garage it would be important to keep the items around it tidy as to be able to access it in the summer months easily. How do you this?
Organize things inside the garage
Pull out your car from the garage, so you can have enough room for cleaning the space. After that, sort out your stuff. Donate or sell things that you can no longer use. Broken equipment and tools should be thrown away. For those things that you decide to keep, make sure that you put them in their proper places.
Invest in a perfect storage solution
If you want to keep things tidy, it might be worth your money to invest in a specialized storage solution. Here are some ideas that you can try:
- Gun and important documents need to be kept out of children’s reach. Invest in a gun safe, if possible.
- Don’t keep propane tanks in the garage. A simple spark can already cause a huge fire accident. Always keep it outside in an upright position.
- Keep pet foods inside your house. Storing it in your garage will attract possums, rats and other pests.
- Mowers should be stored in your basement. It’s too big to be stored inside your garage. Don’t forget to clean it before storing it for the winter. You don’t want its blades to rust.
Although organizing your garage isn’t a fun job, you will be happy to see once you see it clean and tidy.
