3 Tips For Cleaning Out Your Garage Faster

Posted on: 10 February 2019

A garage can easily have years, maybe even decades, worth of junk collection. So, when a homeowner decides to embark on a garage cleanout, without question, it's a massive undertaking. However, the chaos of the task doesn't just involve the cleanup process; you also have to think about what you will do with all the junk you remove.

Assess the Job

Don't pick up a single item in the garage until you assess what needs to be done. For example, does the entire garage require a reboot or just the small storage section in the back corner? With all the demands of life, there is no need to take on more steps than you have to. 

Assessing the job is also important because it will give you a rough estimate of just how much time you think it will take you to complete the process. You might even discover that it's better to break the job up into small steps that you'll complete over time.  

Pre-Plan for Pick Up

Not only is it important for you to get an idea of how long the cleanup process will take so that you know what you're up against, but it's also important because you will likely have to schedule a pick-up service with a garbage removal service. Typically, if you have an increased amount of waste or you have bulky items, you will need to arrange for pick up. 

It's always best to schedule a pickup time beforehand so that you can plan your work around when the waste will be collected, so that you don't have to worry about having piles of waste around your home for an extended time. 

Find the Right Waste Containers

When you speak to the garbage removal company, it's also a good idea to find out if they have any requirements when it comes to your waste collection containers. For example, some companies will request that you break down your boxes before they pick them up. Additionally, some companies require that small items be places inside of bags, as opposed to merely piling them up for collection.

Again, the more prepared you are for pick up day, the faster you can get the unwanted junk off your property. 

Remember, a garage removal company will play a critical role in your cleanup process, so ensure you contact the company as soon as possible. You don't just want the junk gone from your garage; you want it gone for good.
