For the average homeowner, with the exception of maybe a basement, the garage is the most cluttered dumping ground for rarely used and forgotten goods. For other households, the garage isn't so much a dumping spot for underused gear but more of a storage spot for tools, outdoor products and chemicals. Odds are the garage gets cleaned far more infrequently than most other rooms in the house. When your family vehicles are parked inside, it's quite likely that there are few square feet of open space, and most of that space is unlikely to have been cleaned anytime recently. Regardless of excuses for why the garage hasn't been well-kept, now is as good a time as any to get it in top shape.
