Getting Your Garage Ready for Spring
Each year many Americans participate in some form of spring cleaning for their homes, but many of them forget about or neglect their garages. When the weather starts to warm up in the spring and summer it’s only natural to spend more time outdoors. Your garage is a great place to work or even hang out because it provides a combination of being inside and outside at the same time.
The first step to getting your garage ready for spring is making sure it functions properly. Garage door springs are one of the most common parts that require repairs. These springs are under stress every time your garage door operates and eventually they’ll need to be replaced. The best thing you can do is to schedule a garage door inspection from a professional to make sure it’s working properly.
Once your garage door is up to par you can start cleaning out the inside of your garage. You’ll certainly need a broom to clean up the floor and get rid of any cobwebs in the corners. You should open up your garage door while you are cleaning to air the space out. You may want to do a bit of reorganizing including getting out your items for spring and summer and putting away your winter items.
Go through boxes you haven’t opened or used in a long time and determine if you want to sell them, donate them, or throw them away. This is also a great time to reevaluate your garage’s purpose. If you use it to store two vehicles there may not be much you can do with it. However, if you don’t’ store any cars in your garage you can make it into an extra room in your home that serves a specific purpose.
