Summer Trash Build Up: Cleaning out the Garage, Attic, and More
Your garage and attic often serve as dumping grounds for all your junk. Old furniture finds itself stacked up against dusty books while children’s toys mingle with boxes of unused decorations. Throughout the summer, all of these items pile up and before you know it, your garage and attic turn into a mess that requires thorough sorting. You need to organize your essentials regularly in order to keep the junk at a minimum and to create space for items that matter the most.
Before you dig into your next summer cleanout project, you should consider the following tips:
Make Safety the First Priority
Make safety your priority before you enter your attic or garage. It is important that you wear gloves, protective eyewear, and a mask while sorting your junk, especially if it has not been organized in a long time. The safety gear will help protect you against dust, loose nails and splinters.
Categorization is Important
Start out by rearranging your belongings into categories such as decorations, handy tools, family keepsakes and other items. The items that you find hard to categorize are usually unnecessary and need to be disposed of.
Inspect the Cleared Space
Once you have gone through the ordeal of organizing your junk, you need to inspect the cleared ground for additional problems. Lookout for any insulation problems, molds or structural damages such as leaks or animal nests in the attic or garage.
Utilize Storage Containers
Your garage and attic have very limited space, in most cases. Get stackable plastic containers with clearly-marked labels and it will help you save space. Use vacuum-sealed bags to keep your clothes smelling fresh. Place handy tools on metal shelves to keep them out of the reach of children.
