Garages are integral parts of every home. One of the benefits is storing your cars. It also protects cars from harsh weather conditions like hailstones. On top of that, garages are also used to store tools and equipment, meaning there are tasks that can be done there. This then means that they are bound to get dirty. The hurdle now comes in when trying to clean it. That is why we are going to highlight when and how to clean a garage

How to Clean a Garage

Before you know when to clean your garage, you need how to go about it. Here is a step-by-step guide.

     1. Remove Everything

The first part of cleaning your garage involves taking everything out. Remove anything that is laying on the ground and hanging around. You should also take out the items that are in the cabinets and drawers. This will create space for you to clean properly. The only things that may be left inside are furniture and fixtures.

The best place to put everything is on the driveway. Make sure that you put these items in groupings. For example, if you have several overalls, put them in one grouping. This will help you when you are trying to put them back inside at the end. 

     2. Dusting

Garages are usually areas that are frequently forgotten during cleaning times. That is why you will find a lot of dust and dirt laying around. Take a dry piece of cloth and start dusting every inch of the garage.  Make sure you get to all the shelves, cabinets, and workstations. A ladder can also come in handy in such situations. You could use it to clear out hard-to-reach corners that are filled with cobwebs.

     3. Clean the Windows

After you are done dusting different parts of the garage, the next step is to clean the window. Just like all other windows in different rooms, garage windows also bring in some fresh air. Therefore this is a very important step.

When cleaning the window, you will need a piece of cloth, glass cleaner, and newspapers. The piece of cloth would be used to take out any dirt that may be on the windows. You will then spray the glass cleaning solution on the windows. The newspapers would be used to clean the windows by wiping off the solution. This then leaves you with sparkling clean windows.

     4. Clean the Walls

If there is one part in a garage that tends to get dirty quickly, it’s the walls. This is because when one is working, grease and other fluids get to splash on the walls frequently. That is why, when cleaning, a lot of attention should be put on these walls.

Here you will first need a brush and soap solution. With this, scrub all the tough stains on the walls. After that, wipe down the walls using a sponge. You will then finish off by splashing clean water on the walls to remove any remaining dirt.

     5. Wash the Floors

Of course, when you are done with all this, the floor will be dirtier than the way you found it. So you will start by sweeping it. This is to remove any solid rubbish and dirt. After that, you can clean the entire floor using a mop and soap solution. You then wait for everything to dry up.

When to Clean Your Garage

There are so many instances when one should clean his/her garage. Here are some of these instances;

     1. When You Are Done Working

When fixing things, you are bound to have spillages and waste materials. This then means the whole garage will look a mess. That is why it is important for you to clean the garage after working there. This will help you come back to a clean and organized place once you want to fix something else, next time.

     2. When You Need To Declutter

Sometimes, you just feel like the garage is too stuffy. It would be best to clear out everything and organize things. Once you take out everything and sort them, it is important for you to clean the garage. This clears out any dirt and rubbish so that you can return the items you need in clean space.


Knowing instances that are necessary for you to clean up your garage is very important. However, before all of this, you should know how to clean a garage. By following the highlighted steps, you cannot go wrong.

    We needed a few boys to come down to the building site and remove large amounts of materials after the demolition. Paul was very friendly and gave us all the info we needed.

Not only did he arrive on-time and got the job done, he very professional throughout the clean-out and managed his team very well. Top job mate!

    Paul did a splendid job with cleaning out our backyard. We had old fridges, computers, microwaves, timber flooring and heaps of other junk left over from our house renovation. Paul was quick to provide advice and how much it’d cost to get everything cleaned up. He arrived at a time which suited us best and left absolutely no rubbish behind. I can not stress how happy we are now that our family home is junk-free! Thank you!

    You guys are great, I’ll happily recommend you. I just wished I had found you sooner. I felt your price was a little too low when you quoted… so I didn’t think you would do such a good job… well done for proving me wrong.

    Sherryl D, Strathfield, Office Rubbish Removal

    Paul, sensational job as always, love how easy you make it look. Definitely won’t hesitate in calling you again should either my family or friends need rubbish removed. Thanks again!

    Simon R, Bondi, Garden Clean-Up

    Dear Paul, My husband told me what a great job you did in the kitchen, I got home and found every bit of our demolished kitchen removed and I just wanted to write and say thank you for doing it so quickly, thoroughly and for cleaning up afterwards as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending you. We both felt your price was very reasonable too. Many thanks.
