About Basement Clean Out ConversionsHomeowners do basement cleanouts for many reasons. Primarily, it’s to reclaim precious space, whether it’s for more storage, a laundry or mudroom, a combination, or living space. But once it’s done, you can make better use of the room.
In the basement, clutter around equipment and machinery is inconvenient when you need service and dangerous if the jumble is flammable. Disorganization makes finding items stored there difficult, sometimes impossible, so what’s the point of holding onto them, anyway? A mess won’t motivate anyone to get busy in the workshop or exercise center. And the whole thing can turn into a swamp of ruined stuff if a rainstorm turns into a flood while you’re at work or out to dinner. —Dummies.comDo a little research to find nearby homes that have sold in the past few months. Look for properties with what you want in your own house. For instance, if you want to rework the space to accommodate laundry and storage, look for recently sold homes with the same amenities.
Hemet DIY Basement Cleanout GuideNow, let’s get onto the DIY basement cleanout process. It’s hard work and it will take a lot of effort. But, you can get through it by following these DIY basement cleanout tips:
- Create a clear pathway. One problem you might have or will run into when you start your basement clean out is having to negotiate all kinds of obstacles just to get to the stairs. So, make an easy path to the stairs or the walkout door to avoid tripping and falling.
- Organize everything into three sections. There’s a surprise waiting for you in your organized basement space. (It’s there and you’ll encounter it at some point.) Cluttered basements are overwhelming because there’s usually no rhyme or reason for where things are placed. More often than not, things are just thrown wherever there is room to accommodate.
- Sort what you’re keeping. Next, commit to a big time purge. Offload as much as possible (or keep as few things as you can — another way to look at it). The more that goes, the less that stays and the more space you’ll have as a result. Just junk or give away unwanted items.
