Garage Storage Made Easy with DEWALT

Is your garage starting to look cluttered? Do you have trouble finding tools or materials? It might be time to consider organizing your workspace.

Having a clean workplace not only makes for quicker, more efficient work but also helps keep the area safe. Tools and materials on the floor are hard to find and can increase the risk of falls or other injuries. There are many ways to get tidied up and get your garage ready for your next project. DEWALT offers a wide variety of storage options, such as shelves, rolling toolboxes, workbenches, and storage organizers, to help you find a place for all of your equipment.

Where To Start

The first step to decluttering your garage is to see what’s in it. The easiest way to sort through your things is to section out your garage and move everything out. Sectioning off the space can help the task feel less daunting. This is a crucial step to help you know what you have and give you a better idea of the space you have to work with.

While going through your items, decide what you want to keep and what you’re okay parting ways with. If you feel yourself going back and forth on whether to keep an item, determine when you last used it and if it’s something you’ll see yourself needing for future projects. If the answer is no, trash, donate, or sell it.

Once your garage is cleared out, it’s the perfect opportunity to deep clean. Start from the top down. Wipe down any cabinets or counter space with a warm, damp rag. Then, sweep the floor to remove dust kicked up by moving items around. The Harper Wet/Dry Outdoor Push Broom with a 24-inch head and extra-long, stiff bristles is great for covering more surface in less time. Harper’s high-quality shop brooms are equipped with a steel brace and bolt-on connector, so a loose handle will never slow you down.

Lastly, mop or hose off the floor. Pick up the Flexon 50-foot Water Hose to make this process as painless as possible. With its kink-resistant, flexible Rubber/Vinyl design, the all-purpose hose will have your garage floor clean and ready for you to get back to work in no time. The 5/8-inch diameter and 250 PSI burst strength make this the perfect hose for professional or home use. Allow your garage to dry completely before bringing anything back in.

Now that you have sorted your inventory and decided what you’d like to keep, you can determine what kind of storage you need and how you’ll want to implement them. If you don’t know where to start, here are some ideas for you to get started.
