Clear the ClutterSpring Time Maintnenace for the Garage

It is common for boxes and other storage items to collect in the garage, and eventually the storage space can become quite messy. Schedule time to pull everything out of the garage and sort through the mess. Identify items that should be donated to a local collection center, throw away anything that is broken, and organize the rest into durable storage bins.

Sweep the Floor

Once the clutter has been moved, then the floor is ready to be swept. Pull out the broom and brush out the leaves, dirt, and other items that have collected on the floor of the garage door. If you want to really clean the garage, consider using a power washer to get rid of oil stains and marks on the cement floor.

Inspect the Garage Door

Regular inspection of the garage door is essential to maintain safety for your family. Over the course of a year, there are various things that need attention on the garage door. For example, it is important to check all of the bolts and screws, because it is possible for these things to become loose as the garage door moves up and down. Additionally, there are benefits to lubricating the track that the garage door runs along, to reduce the friction that occurs when the garage door is moving. Finally, make sure that you spend some time to clean the outside and inside of the garage door.

Many homeowners don’t have experience with garage door maintenance, and they find it easier to contact a garage door expert for help with this inspection and upkeep. Schedule a time to have this appointment at least once a year, which will help to extend the life of your garage door and keep your family safe.
