Keeping your garage tidy

Organising the garage is something many of us dread. Clutter builds up in the garage over the years leaving one headache to deal with when tidying. We’ve decided to help you along in this process with these great tips to organise your garage. 

 

First things first, the purge. Going through everything in the garage and throwing away unused and unwanted items will save you a lot of space. Anything not used in the last year is usually a good market of what to throw away or keep.

 

Tip 1 – Wall Storage

Making the most of your walls is easily one of the best ways to create space in your garage. This can be done in a few ways such as tool organisation. Our personal favourite is the add a magnetic board or wall panel. This will allow you to store your tools very simply in whatever fashion or organisation system you want. 

Another good wall storage solution is to add shelves. Although this sounds simple and is probably already something you have in your garage, using full length shelves creates much more space.

 

Tip 2 – Boxes

Another good way to start the organisation process is to get boxes. Large garden bins are very common and fairly cheap to buy. They can create a great storage system for all those small items that clutter up the garage. These boxes should be organised and most importantly labelled. A good way to make labels for boxes that have a changing content is to buy stick on whiteboard. 

 

Tip 3 – The ceiling

A space many people forget about is the ceiling. There are a few ways to make use of this space. Having proper fitted storage is one solution which can be quite costly however creates a lot of space. The second slightly cheaper alternative is to make use of the boxes from tip 2. By screwing in some 2x2s to the ceiling followed by 1x4s attached to these leaves you with sliding rails great to store the boxes. 

 

These tips should help you in the long process of sorting your garage. Stay tuned to our blog section and social media pages for more tips and tricks from us at the Cleanhome Franchise.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.

COVID-19 5th January Update

 

Just to let you know we are open for business as usual and you can continue to have your cleaner clean your house.

The government has made it clear that cleaners are still permitted to work inside peoples' homes as long as Government Guidelines on social distancing and staying safe are followed (see below). In summary:

You can be outside of your home for work purposes where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home, including if your job involves working in other people's homes.

The full text can be found here New National Restrictions from 5 January (in England; there are similar texts available for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Specifically relating to cleaners, the guidance continues: 'This guidance applies to those working in, visiting or delivering to home environments. These include, but are not limited to, people working in the following areas:

  • 'This can include work in other people's homes where necessary - for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople (this is not an exhaustive list)'

Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:

  • No work should be carried out in a household where people are isolating or where an individual is being shielded.
  • The cleaners can continue work, providing that they are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a cleaner who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.
  • No work should be carried out in a household where any occupants are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, or households with a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus.
  • Whilst in the house. a cleaner should maintain a safe distance of at least two metres from any household occupant at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where they are working, including opening the window.
  • Upon entering the home, cleaners should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cleaners should wash their hands regularly, particularly after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property.

The good news with regard to cleaning is that the cleaners can social distance from their clients very easily, and we would advise that, if you are at home when they are there, that you remain in a separate room to your cleaner.

If you are happy to adhere to the government guidelines - and if your cleaner has not been in touch already - then please just call the office and we will ensure that your cleaning continues.

Best regards
