Generally the garage has a function as a vehicle parking space at home, but other than that the garage also has a function as a place to put items such as plant tools, lawn mowers, wooden equipment and even rarely used items.
Of the many functions that garages have, and in general the placement of home garages is rarely affordable by outsiders or guests, making garages often not offset by regular maintenance, unlike other home interiors. This can lead to accumulation of dirt and garbage.
If the cleanliness of the garage is often ignored, it is possible that it may cause some health and safety issues. Here are tips on cleaning garage steps easily.
How to Clean Garage?
- First thing to do is to take out all the items in the garage, then make a grouping of these items, for example into three groups of piles that is, goods to be stored and will be reused, goods to be donated, goods to be discarded. If there are items that still work well but are rarely used, it would not hurt to resell these items in online sites buying and selling used goods that are widely available today.
- So if you have sorted and selected items that are in the garage, the next thing is to clean the goods, because the items stored in the garage is very easy to dust. Use a water hose to flush water-damaged equipment such as garbage cans, garden tools, bicycles and other grimy equipment. Allow to dry, clean up this when items are still outside the garage door. For flammable items exposed to water then do the cleaning by washing it with a damp cloth. Check for lawn mowers, whether they require rearing, as with other garden tools, whether it needs to be sharpened or repaired before all the equipment is put into the garage again.
- After the items removed from the garage have been cleaned, it is time to clean up the garage. Eliminate the spider webs on the corners of the wall by using a broom, wiping dust on the shelves with a damp cloth. Sweep the floor of the luggage, then brush every corner and gap, as well as the entire luggage floor. If there are oil stains that are difficult to remove use sawdust or use sand for cat feces, then pour degreaser and wait for fifteen minutes, then brush and rinse with water then dry.
- Once everything is cleaner do the rearrangement of goods into the garage. If necessary, use a transparent plastic box to accommodate items for easy discovery without having to search all items. Label by writing the name of the group of goods.
