Autumn Proofing Your Garage

It’s that time of year again, with the weather knocking at your window. Shorter days, longer nights… it’s hats and gloves weather. However, your garage doesn’t have the luxury of being able to slip on a lovely new coat and cosy scarf, so whether you rent a garage in the UK or you own your own, there are several things you can do to give your garage a better life through these chilliest of seasons.

Weatherproofing

OK, this may seem a little obvious, but with the wicked weathers coming around, your garage will thank you dearly for giving them fresh weatherproofing measures. It is recommended to weatherstrip your doors to help fend off the water which likes to eat its way through everything. If you are in the position of having a garage underneath a room, then you can help block the presence of cold air sneaking in through weatherstripping and putting in strips across the foot of your doors. If you have been wise enough to do this last year, just give it a check to see it’s in tip-top condition for the winter ahead.

Cleaning

We know that it’s no one’s favourite job, but it’s a necessary evil. Through using a stiff broom to give your garage a brisk brush, you can prevent the build up of dead leaves and insects as well as just general debris. This stops any unwanted guests taking up refuge in your comfy dirt. Equally, give the walls and corners a clean to help prevent those eight legged inhabitants appearing, besides that, spider webs can really make a garage look really untidy!

Sealing Cracks

Cracks and holes have a nasty habit of letting in moisture as well as allowing all your hard-earned money seep through the walls in the form of warm air. This is exactly the sort of energy inefficiency you need to tackle prior to the bad weather being ultra-omnipresent, so the sooner you do this, the better. Not only will you make your winter a more comfortable one, it can also serve to make for a cheaper one.

Garages are an easy thing to forget about when undertaking your general tidying chores, but through implementing a system you can serve to save yourself money, as well as giving yourself a warmer home in winter; which is what we’re all after, right?
