5 Things You Should Do In Your Garage!

In most homes, lets face it, the garage is your personal storage unit.

Many times when we come out to service garage doors, we step into garages that are so filled with things and boxes everywhere that you cant even see the walls and celling! These situations make it harder for us the professionals to provide you the best garage door service, so we decided to help our customers (and our selves) to keep the garage clean and organized!


Your garage is a special place that you can use to organize all of your stuff. Not only can it help you save time when looking for something, but it can also help you save money because you will be able to find things easier. There are several different things that you can do in your garage to make it more organized. Here are some tips on organizing your garage:


1. You should remove anything unnecessary from your car to the garage. You should keep the car and only have things inside of it that are absolutely necessary. If you need to leave something in your car that is not absolutely necessary, you should either put it somewhere where it will be easier to find later or replace it with something smaller and easier to find. You should use boxes, plastic totes, or plastic bins to store your personal belongings that you do not need access to.


2. You should think about how you are going to be storing the items you already have. You should think about whether or not these items will be safe if they are stored in the way that you currently store them. If you are currently storing all of your personal belongings in a plastic shoebox that is full of things that can break or fall over, then you should change this now. You should use shoe boxes, clear plastic bins, or hooks to store these things. Keep in mind that it is very important to not install shelf units close to your garage door system, as they can damage and interfere with maintenance dues in the future.


3. You should consider how you are going to be using storage shelves. If you currently only have one shelf for things that you frequently use, then you should make this available. You should use shelves that can be reached through a door or have shelving that is close at hand so that people will be able to look at what they need without having to go through your entire garage to get to what they want. You should also think about putting other types of shelving in other locations throughout your garage so that you will have a good view of what you have and where it is located.


4. You should think about what you would like to have on the walls of your garage. Some of the best things to have include rugs and paintings. If you want to place rugs on a wall, you should make sure that they are ones that are durable, water resistant, and easily washable. This is especially important if you have a dog or two that likes to get muddy and mess up your things.


5. If you have a big garage, and don't need all the space for storage, you can always convert half of the space to work on your favorite crafts, run on your treadmill or even watch your favorite tram's game on a wall projector with friends!
