The Tidy Life
May 9, 2016
Begin your shed cleaning process by first removing everything you have from your shed. Place those items in three distinct groups: keep, trash or donate. You can even consider setting aside some of the items you won’t need to use throughout the summer to store in your self-storage unit. After removing all of the items designated for trash and donation, focus in on the pile of things you plan to keep. Hose down or wipe off the dust, grime and cobwebs that gathered throughout the winter months and make sure the equipment and tools you are keeping are as clean as possible. Then, sweep out the shed floor while its empty to prepare to put your items back in storage. If your shed has windows, wipe down the inside of those windows as well.
After your shed cleaning is complete, the next step is shed organizing. Before you start moving everything from your yard back into storage, it’s important to think about what items you will be using the most. Your lawn mower, weed whacker, edger and garden equipment are things you will want to be able to access quickly and easily. This way, you won’t have to waste time moving boxes and digging through your shed for what you need when it’s time to do your landscaping. Christmas decorations and snow blowers are examples of things you will want to put in first near the back of the shed. Always make sure you are grouping like items together, too, and don’t save anything you no longer need.
Depending on the space you have available in your backyard shed, renting a self-storage unit for your winter tools and accessories may go a long way to helping maintain shed organization throughout the summer. Instead of cramming your snow shovels and artificial Christmas tree in the back of your shed alongside your beach chairs, consider ezStorage.
