The garage may be an easily overlooked area but it’s still a functional part of your home. Whether it serves as a place for your car or a spacious storage room, your garage is a key part of your home and as such, is something you need to keep clean and germ free.
Here’s our complete garage cleaning guide to help you dig in and get it done this season.
Clear Out The Clutter
Your garage is a central hub for many activities. Start your garage cleaning journey by clearing out as many items as possible, including gardening or yard supplies, tools, camping gear, or sports equipment. Sort everything into groups on your driveway or lawn broken down into 3 categories: keep, discard, or donate. Invest in storage bins or shelving to neatly reorganize the items you’re saving.
Break down any cardboard boxes to recycle and reduce the risk of mold from your garage’s moisture. Check the expiration dates of older automotive or cleaning solutions. Discard them into the proper receptacles if they’re past their prime.
Sanitize Your Garage Space
Once your garage is clear of clutter, it’s time to start scrubbing. Use a multi-surface solution to spray on windows, glass, counters, cabinets, and more. Our award winning Multi-Surface Disinfectant & Cleaner is the perfect product to cut through your garage’s grease and grime and kill 99.9% of germs. Don’t forget about uninvited visitors like bugs or spiders! Grab a broom or duster to clear off
cobwebs that may be lurking in corners or hard to reach areas. Finally, take on the floor. Sweep up any dirt or debris with a broom or use a hose to bring some added cleaning power and make it really shine.
Clean The Car
Your car can trek a lot of mud into your garage, so give it a good wash! Stock your car detailing kit with microfiber cloths to protect your vehicle from scratches while giving it the ultimate clean. Take some time for the interior too. Vacuum the floor, toss any trash, and spray down the windows with glass cleaner. For the smaller details, wipe down the steering wheel, mirrors, door handles, garage door opener, and even your car keys.
Taking on a task this large can feel tedious, but we hope these tips to disinfecting your garage will help you feel refreshed and ready for the sunnier seasons ahead.
