Tune in on March 12 to Watch GarageTek Contribute to the Organized Transformation of a Southern California Family
March 10, 2008 // Franchising.com // NEW YORK –On The Style Network, Saturday, March 12, (check local listings for times), "Clean House" viewers will be able to witness the dramatic before and after organization makeover of the Halverson family home in Redondo Beach, Calif. GarageTek, the industry leader of custom garage organization systems, is featured in the dramatic re-vamping of the family's two-car garage.
The episode tells the story of the Halverson family, who moved into their beachside Southern California dream home and started a remodel that was never finished – and chaos and mess ensued. The "Clean House" experts, together with the GarageTek team, came to the rescue.
During the "before" phase, the family garage was almost entirely filled and obstructed by boxes, sports gear, toys and tools everywhere. Like many U.S. garages, the Halverson garage could not house one, yet alone two cars in the family's two-car garage due to a steady accumulation of household "stuff."
After the experts at GarageTek went to work – including the local franchisees from Orange County and Los Angeles – the garage was whipped into shape and is barely recognizable from its prior condition. New garage flooring features GarageTek's recently introduced game floor option – this one with a shuffleboard court and oversized game pieces for the entire family to use.
GarageTek's bright and shiny proprietary TekPanelïƒ¤ walls hold the family's bicycles, tricycle, surf boards, snowboard, soccer balls and even more athletic equipment. Space for a workshop for "dad" was created, complete with a workbench. The installation also features GarageTek's storage lockers for kids. And, there is almost an entire wall dedicated to storage cabinets. GarageTek brought all of this space and organization to life in a smaller sized two-car garage.
"As we can see in the 'Clean House' episode, the process of organizing the household can bring the entire family together and can literally create space for family interests – not to mention the family car or cars," said Marc A. Shuman, President and Founder of GarageTek. "You also notice how much space we can create even in a smaller sized garage – the garage can literally accommodate at least 50% more items, and in an attractive, uncluttered manner."
