Did you know that there was a national clean out your garage day? Well I was not aware of this until recently.. and I think it is a really cool thing. “National Clean Out Your Garage Day” is an observance dedicated to educating Americans about garage safety.
This year, The Lehigh Group the manufacturer of Crawford branded garage organization products are coming together to make the 2013 program the largest campaign to date. Slated for Saturday, Sept. 8, this year’s “National Clean Out Your Garage Day” campaign will focus on teaching people how to perfect their parking zones by providing tips for organizing and preventing garage accidents.
Cleaning out the clutter doesn’t have to be overwhelming or expensive. To help make garages safer and more functional this fall, the safety experts at The Lehigh Group are offering up these organizational tips:
· Sort the Mess – Separate your items into categories. Then pitch, donate or sell items you don’t use. After deciding what stays, separate the garage into zones for storing each category of items, and then choose the most appropriate storage method.
· Go Vertical – Garages provide ample wall and ceiling space to easily convert for storage through use of hanging shelves, pegboards, storing rails and overhead systems. For example, The Lehigh Group makes a variety of Crawford®-brand flexible mesh storage organizers that hang on the wall and can hold up to 25 lbs. They are particularly suited to accommodate awkward or bulky items, from pet toys to work gloves and camping equipment.
· Securely Store Hazardous Items – Place toxic materials such as paint, paint thinner, weed and bug killers, fertilizer and gasoline in high cabinets or lockable tool chests out of children’s reach. Use well-supported shelves to store cleaning solutions and vehicle fluids. Tool hangers, like the Crawford®-brand smart system, work well to store tools and extension cords. The steel rail can be hung on any type of wall. Select models can hold up to 48 tools.
To celebrate, Crawford has prepared me with an organization kit – filled with essential tools for ensuring the highest level of garage organization . Wow a clean garage? What mom would not love this? We were sent a Garage Organization Kit filled with the following items:
Crawford®-brand flexible mesh storage organizers
Crawford®-brand smart system
This is just what we need to get in gear, a challenge to get the garage clean.. This kit was just what we needed to get things in order and we are on our way to a much better storage area. We can now clip the dust pan and other items to the wall with the handy clips that were in the kit. The adjustable storage organizer makes it easy to get the brooms and mops organized, and with hanging them on the wall, I know where they are all the time. When I need a broom I no longer have to search for one, this is a great thing. National Clean Out Your Garage day is coming up soon why not straiten it up, trust me it will be worth it.
