3 Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time to Clean Out Your Garage

you been putting off cleaning your garage? Well, there is no time
like the present, and that is especially true during the winter
months. Read below to learn why the wintertime is the perfect time to
get your garage straightened out.

Protect Your Car

If you
live in a cold climate, such as New York, snow is nothing new to you.
Unfortunately, our cars don’t take too well to winter weather, as it
can cause your battery to freeze, tires to deflate, and paint to
fade. One way to avoid these problems is by storing your car in the
garage to shelter it from these harsh conditions, which you can’t do
if it is filled with junk.

It’s Winter-Friendly

face it: there’s not a whole lot of home improvement and cleaning
projects that you can do in the winter. Luckily, cleaning your garage
doesn’t require you to go outside, so you can still do it even when
the weather outside is frightful.

Spring Cleaning

By the
time spring rolls around, most of us have a cleaning list that is a
mile long. By being proactive and taking the time to clean out your
garage now, you will have one less thing to do when it is time to
start your spring cleaning.

have a lot to clean out of your garage, you may need a dumpster to
hold all of your junk. If you live in New York City, Nassau County,
or Suffolk County, 1-866-We-Junk-It can accommodate. We offer

4 Snow Day Home Improvement Projects

came a little late to Long Island this year, but it’s definitely here
now. After a blizzard last month and a couple small storms since,
Nassau and Suffolk County residents can prepare for even more snow
this week.
days don’t mean you should spend the whole time sitting on your
couch, though. Turn your snow day into a go day with these four home
improvement project ideas:


Painting a room can be a long, tedious job – which is why a snow
day is the perfect excuse to get it done. Just make sure to gather
your supplies a day or two ahead of time, unless you already have
extra unopened paint cans lying around.


The internet is FULL of DIY craft ideas. A quick search on Google or
Pinterest can easily keep you occupied for an entire snow day, if not
several. Turn that antique in the attic into a decorative
masterpiece, or upcycle a piece of junk into something useful. The
possibilities are endless.


If you are going to be stuck inside for the entire day, don’t you at
least want to be stuck somewhere clean? Clean the bathroom, under you
bed, the hallway closet, or dust and vacuum the house like you have
been meaning to do for the past two months.


There’s a fine line between cleaning and organizing, but you can’t go
wrong with either when you are snowed in. We all have that one junk
drawer that could stand to be straightened out, or maybe you suddenly
need a map to find the food in your refrigerator. Whatever it is that
you want to organize, pick it and get going!
If you have any upcoming projects that will generate lots of garbage,
866-We-Junk-It is here to help. We offer dumpster rentals and junk
removal services to Long Island, Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, and
Queens. We always arrive on time, and leave the job site cleaner than
we found it. Visit our website for a free quote, or call us at
