Installation is tool-less, easy and quick. Its broad, solid base provides optimal stability meaning it will not tip over even when large tools are stored on it. The broom holder has integrated holes at its top to let you anchor the tool rack to the wall. Although it can carry up to 30 tools, at times the weight may tip it over.

Both of the Bissell brand models we tested performed highly in terms of final cleaning results. The Symphony was able to remove dried-on soil in ten seconds, when using the vacuum function. It also picked up all the dirt and grime in our high traffic areas, although it wasn’t as bright of a finish as the 19404 PowerFresh.

The fencing wall surface shifts to become the huge above door of the garage. Due to the fact that the roofing plane of the garage overlaps the personal swimming pool area (to the left), it develops an obscurity about where the garage ends as well as the pool starts.

In a busy garage, you’ll use several types of items that come in boxes-rolls you use as you need.  This section provides solutions to take those items which are generally around for a while, and get them up on the garage wall.

Gardening tools can be awkward and hard to store, but there are tons of great options to help get you organized. For long handled tools like rakes and shovels, you could get a small standing rack for your garage or shed (here’s the standing rack that I have, or you can get one like this that fits in the corner). You can also store long handled garden tools by hanging them on hooks on the wall. I use this heavy duty long handle tool hanger for my garden tools too (I have a lot of tools!).

Prior to cleaning, you should thoroughly sweep or vacuum your floors, and the microfiber pads should be cleaned and washed regularly. Some models come with carpet gliders, which can eliminate odors and freshen carpets, but do not remove stains. Multi-purpose types have brushes and attachments to clean carpets.

A separate tank for detergent can be found in the floor-head, but detergent isn’t mandatory. The machine heats up in just three seconds, after which it’s full steam ahead for up to 15 minutes. That’s a respectable cleaning time for a small tank.

Actually, the Uniform Building Code as far back as 1970 (when I used it to study for the registration exam), did not require a 1-hr fire rated wall or ceiling between a single-family house and an attached garage. In fact, the requirements were virtually the same as today’s International Residential Code.

For larger jobs that require multiple pads, the Shark Genius Pocket Mop makes switching and replacing them as easy as any steam mop we tried. You press a small lever with your foot, let the folded-over Genius pad flip open onto the floors, and shimmy the mop head out of the pad. You can then flip the pad over to use the back side or click a fresh pad into place, all without touching it with your hands—it’s faster, cleaner, and safer, especially while the mop is still hot. That convenience will cost you $20 to $30 extra over the PowerFresh; in most other respects, the Genius Pocket Mop nearly matches the PowerFresh in ease of use, weight, and flexibility.

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written about our favorite vacuums here before, twice actually, we decided to expand our cleaning-supply coverage to include bacteria-killing mops. Here, the best steam mops on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Strips of plywood fastened horizontally to the studs are the key to this system. Once they’re up, you can easily mount any kind of storage hardware or shelf standard without worrying about where the stud is or whether a drywall anchor will hold. Since you can drive a screw anywhere, you can pack more stuff on the wall.

The PowerFresh pushes out continuous steam when turned on, which we found far more convenient than having to press a trigger or pump the handle to release steam. Some expensive steam mops offer multiple settings for different floor types (most of which you should avoid anyway), or a “scrub” setting, but they’re all just pushing out more or less steam. Other, usually cheaper, mops have only one steam level. The PowerFresh is right in the middle, offering three levels of steam output, and one button to choose those levels or turn off the mop. It’s easy enough to understand just by looking at it, and it gives you a modicum of control.

Ok, so we’ve mentioned pegboards a few times but they are honestly the easiest and most efficient way to organize garage items. You just have to hang the board on the wall and add the included hardware for storing just about anything. Some systems even include hooks and small bins to keep you completely organized from start to finish.

Small triangular heads are an ideal option if you have nooks and crannies you need to clean, such as around a toilet. Keep in mind that it will take longer to clean a large area with a mop that has a smaller head.

At TheSweethome.com where Kevin Purdy tests the S6002, he recommends the Shark Genius S5003D as an upgrade for bigger steaming jobs if you don’t need the spray mop option. Owners give it very good ratings too, saying it’s easy to use and they love that flippable pad technology. Again, the main complaint we see about this steam mop — and all Shark steam mops — is that it does not stand up by itself and you have to lean it against a wall.

I knew a variation would work in our tool shed. I had some PVC left over from a sculpture project posted here. (Side note- following that link is worth it if you don’t know about our sculpture week. Risk it and take a look!) Instead of the suggested format, I cut the PVC scraps at an angle (approx. 30º) into 6 pieces and mounted them at the mid point and bottom of my shed wall. Here are the cut pieces. I saved the short end pieces and I was glad I did.

I’ve been using this constantly for about 5 months. The mechanism that holds the brooms in place is still as tight as when I got it. You do have to use a tad bit of force to push your items in and pull them out. It shouldn’t be a problem at all for most people but if you are elderly or have arthritis it may be an issue.

GL Premium cabinetry fit on both sides of the door without any customization. Stainless steel counter tops and valance lighting provide a suitable work space. Khaki Floortex™ floor coating was used on the floors and a taupe slatwall provides additional storage options on the side walls.

So if we examine the above diagram, starting on the top left side and reading right, we can see that if we cover the first six (6) stud spaces with a 8′ long 2 x 4 we will fall short of meeting the center of the seventh stud by 3/4. So we will cut the 9′ – 2 x 4s to a length of 8′ 0-3/4 for both the sole and top plates. Next we can place a full 8′ – 2 x 4 length next to this without any cutting to length and it will fall under the center of the thirteenth stud in the wall. Finally, we can cut the the next plate length from a 8′ long 2 x 4 to the measurement of 7′ 10-1/4. We need a total plate length of 23′ 11, so lets add up our proposed lengths before we cut to make sure we have it right:

The Bissell Symphony Pet All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop also made fast work of cleaning up food soils, but the Bissell 19404 PowerFresh performed better in high traffic areas. The scrub tool and nylon utility brush attachments of the Steamfast SF-370WH Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner garnered excellent results in both areas, but it did not perform as highly with just the microfiber pad you would normally use to mop a floor.

The cabinets were custom fit into the alcove on the back wall (GL Custom Steel cabinetry featuring black shells and silver doors). The central vac system was concealed in one of the storage lockers. Slatwall panels and hooks provide additional storage. The flooring is done with a Quicksilver Floortex™ floor coating.

Cohesive and functional, these plastic bins are a practical way to bring organization into your garage. They simply click into place along a slatted wall. Transforming the unused space beneath a cabinet into a neat row of bins for regularly used items, such as seed packets, pliers, and painter’s tape, means never having to search for small items again.

We don’t recommend Bissell’s scent discs, which provide Febreze-like odors when placed between the cleaning pads and the mop head. (These come standard with the Purple Pet model and are sold separately for the Blue model we recommend). Both mops come with a plastic ring attachment that you can use to run the PowerFresh over your carpet and “refresh” it. It didn’t do much to help a section of carpet that one pet had (ahem) made its own.
