It’s time for spring cleaning! You may already have a list of areas that you want to tackle, but is your garage one of them? If not, don’t worry. Many people forget to include garage cleaning in their to do lists. At Larry Myers Garage Doors, we believe a clean garage is a safe garage, which is why we’ve put together our favorite garage cleaning tips to help you get started.
Get Rid of Dust:
Dust is often overlooked, especially when it comes to garages. Dusk can buildup and settle in cracks, crevices, and other small openings. Dip a rag in soapy water and thoroughly wipe surfaces in your garage, including your garage door. Don’t forget to clean your door frames and other commonly forgotten areas.
Clean Your Garage Floor:
Cleaning garage floors can be challenging. If your garage is also your storage space, you should take some items out so you can clean more thoroughly. Sweep your garage floor, then mix a mild detergent such as liquid dish soap with hot water and mop the floor. Use a hose or fill a large container with water to flush away any leftover debris and soap. Dry the floor with towels to avoid slippery areas.
Inspect for Damage:
Performing a garage inspection is an important part of spring cleaning. By checking for any damages, you can spot and resolve problems like cracks or frayed weatherproofing strips before spring showers arrive.
