The new year is a great time to start thinking about how you use your garage. Whether you want to convert it into a home office, gym or simply want to protect the items you store in there, a spring clean is the best way to get started. We’ve put together a guide to making sure your garage is ready to face the year ahead.
Whatever you use your garage for, the new year is a fantastic time to sort out your garage. We’re all guilty of hanging onto things we don’t really need so take this opportunity to figure out what exactly is in your garage. If you can’t see the garage floor for belongings, it is probably time for a sort out!
Organise your belongings into what you are going to keep, what you are going to sell or donate and what you are going to throw away from your garage. If you decide to throw away anything from your garage, make sure you take it to the tip and dispose of it right away to avoid it remaining in your garage as rubbish. This is particularly important for items such as vegetation or food as leaving these items in your garage can encourage pests.
Whilst you are busy organising your garage, it is probably a good time to give your garage a good clean. A clean garage and garage door can be a good step towards keeping your garage in good working order. Clearing the muck from your garage door and floor can help reveal any issues with pests or other garage issues, it can also make it a much better place to store your belongings in. During this step, take some time to check your garage over for any issues.
It’s not often we take the time to check over our garage doors. Many of us assume because there are no obvious issues, it must be performing as it should. However, faulty or worn garage doors could costing your money on heating bills as well as causing a number of other issues in your garage. Take time during your spring clean to thoroughly check your garage door and all of the joins and seals to make sure they are in top working order for the year ahead.
If you are frequently finding leaves or debris on your garage floor, it could be a sign that your garage door seals are not working as they should be. If you can feel a draught from your garage door when holding a hand next to it, your old or worn garage door seals could be letting in the elements from the outside world and causing damage to the belongings kept in your garage. By regularly checking your garage door seals and checking if you need a floor seal for your garage door, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly where the problem lies and sort out a solution.
Faulty or worn garage door seals let the outside world into your garage. From rats and insect life to dust and debris, garage door seals stop a multitude of problems from entering your garage. By replacing worn garage door seals and adding garage floor seals to seal the gap between your garage door and the garage floor, you could even save on your heating bills as door seals work to prevent warm air from your heating seeping into your garage and out through the gaps in your garage door.
