Give Your Garage a Deep Cleaning

It doesn’t take long for a once-pristine garage to become covered in a layer of dirt and grime. Fortunately, with just one deep-cleaning session, you can get it back in shape.

Remove Cobwebs

Neglected corners of your garage quickly gather old leaves, dirt and dust bunnies. Even worse, they are attractive homes for spiders. You’ll know those creepy-crawly residents have been there because of the cobwebs they leave behind.

A garage deep cleaning should begin by clearing out all of the webs and other nasty stuff that has built up in the corners and along the walls. Don’t forget to look up, as ceilings harbor cobwebs too.

If you tackle the corners with a broom, be sure to clean the bristles as you go. Sucking all of the yuck up with a vacuum hose can be quicker and easier.

It can be a good idea to wear a dust mask and rubber gloves as you deep clean the garage. These provide a layer of protection from dead insects, animal droppings or anything else you come across.

Wipe Down Surfaces

Once the dust and cobwebs are removed, you’re ready to wipe down the surfaces of the garage. Get a bucket of soapy water and several old rags. Wipe the walls and any shelves with the rags. If the surfaces are really dirty, you will probably have to go over them more than once.

This step also includes cleaning the garage door. If you find cracks or other defects while wiping down the door, contact a professional company for garage door repair in Henderson.

Clean the Floor

Thanks to dripping oil, the floor is one of the most likely spots to get garage stains. Therefore, you’ll want to give it extra attention during your garage deep cleaning.

To clean the garage floor, first, sweep it. Then, mop the floor, or scrub it with a sponge. Even if you put some elbow grease into any especially dirty spots, the entire floor may need a second mopping.

If some garage stains remain, rub them with a wire brush or wash them with a mixture of laundry detergent and water. If the stains resist these treatments, leave a layer of kitty litter over the spot overnight. If all else fails, commercial degreaser products will help lift the stains.
