Winter has arrived and now is the time to re-organize your garage while the Christmas boxes are out due to decorating.
This leaves a perfect opportunity for you to move things around and upgrade your garage before the year ends.
Here are a few ways you can make additional room for your garage:
-ADD FLOOR MATS TO YOUR GARAGE
Winter rain and cold weather can sometimes cause damage to your garage floors. By installing floor mats you can ensure that your garage floors will remain clean underneath and also prevent any type of oil stains or accidental slips from visitors. It will also add more style to your garage.
Containment mats are another good idea since they can absorb any type of water that may be entering the garage while providing additional traction for you vehicle.
-ADD A NEW COATING TO THE FLOOR (Epoxy)
Adding a coating to your floor such as epoxy can help seal any type of cracks in the garage especially if you live in an earthquake prone area such as California.
To prevent any type of slippage request to have a non slip additive to your floor coating which will have a very similar grip to sandpaper.
-CLEAN YOUR CAR OR TRUCK
Since all the Christmas ornaments are out of their boxes as well as any plastic Christmas trees you can utilize the space to clean your vehicle(s).
Enjoy the free space and try to re-arrange things into the corners of your garage so you can enjoy cleaning your vehicles throughout the year.
Storage is very important if you wish to have additional space in your garage so what better idea is there besides using storage bins?
Be sure to place all the larger bins on the bottom and stack the smaller bins to the top.
This will prevent any type of imbalance between boxes and prevent serious injury in case they happen to fall.
-INSTALL A NEW CEILING FAN
While the boxes are out and all additional storage that takes up space throughout the year, now is the perfect time to install a ceiling fan.
Chances are that since its the winter the prices of ceiling fans will be drop offering you a great price versus buying in the winter.
-REPLACE YOUR OLD WEATHER STRIPPING
By upgrading or repairing your old weather stripping you can retain more heat inside your garage than before.
This can also help prevent any insects or critters from entering your garage and making it their new home.
I hope this blog helped remind you that now is the time to clean up that garage!
