If you own a home with a garage, it is important to maintain the space. Most garages are used to store vehicles and serve as a storage for tools and other items. It is important to organize and keep the space hazard free. Extension chords should be wrapped up and off the ground, sharp tools should be placed away from children, chemicals should be stored off the ground away from children and pets. Donate or discard unwanted items to your local hardware store.
It is important to keep your ceiling fans dust free so when you turn them on, dust does not spread across the room. Carefully use a ladder and damp cloth to wipe each of the blades. Wear a mask to reduce the rate you inhale any dust.
It is important to have your carpets cleaned at least once a year. Stains or spills can be unattractive, while dust mites can cause allergies. Food remnants can be found in your carpets, which can attract unwanted pests.
