With every day bringing another frightening drop in temperature and more layers of clothing than you can shake a stick at, there is no denying that winter is well and truly around the corner.
However, it’s not quite here yet. Which makes it the perfect time to start thinking about preparing your garage for the change in season. Cold weather has the potential to cause some real damage within your garage, so it’s vital that you take preventive steps right now.
Looking to winter-proof your garage? Here are some top tips to get you started.
Store Away Items You Won’t be Using
There are certain items that you will have used a lot during the summer, that will soon become redundant during the colder seasons. These items, such as your lawnmower and garden hose, will need to be brought into your garage and covered up to keep them protected. Therefore, you need to make space for these specific things to be brought in.
Utilise the Space on the Walls
Garages are not usually very big (unless you’re lucky!), so it’s often hard to store everything you need in there. You should try and use space on the on the walls by creating or buying a gear track. Not only will this maximise floor space, it will also help to make the garage more organised.
Don’t Forget the Door
A lot of people won’t think twice about their door… well, until it stops working at least. It’s essential that your garage door works perfectly throughout the winter, otherwise all your hard work within would have been for nothing.
An unsealed door will let cold air through extremely quickly, so it’s important to double check that it’s properly insulated. If you have an automatic door, you should ensure that the track is both clean and lubricated.
