When you have a detached garage in Coeur d’Alene, you know that during the winter, it can be difficult to keep it clean. With mud, ice, snow, and other elements to deal with, it can seem like you are never able to keep your garage as clean as you’d like.

As one of the top construction teams for barns, sheds, and hobby shops in Coeur d’Alene, our team at MQS, Inc. has some helpful advice on how to keep your garage organized and clean this winter. If you implement these into your garage, you can keep those winter frustrations outside where they belong.

Add Floor Mats if You Have a Concrete Floor

We know that all detached Coeur d’Alene garages don’t have a concrete floor. Some garages are used to store farm equipment, which means a dirt floor is perfectly acceptable. However, for garages that do have concrete, you may want to look into adding floor mats.

Concrete floors can become stained with extra slush, snow, and mud. Ice melt and salt can also be tracked inside, which can damage or crack the floors if it is not removed quickly. Floor mats can serve as an extra barrier between these harmful elements and the concrete. Mats can also prevent slips and falls as they provide much better traction than a wet or dirty concrete floor.

Floor mats make clean-up inside your garage in Coeur d’Alene much easier. These can be removed and hosed off outside, or if you wish to clean them indoors, you can use a squeegee or vacuum to remove any mess that has accumulated. Once winter is over, you can give your mats a thorough cleaning and simply roll them up and store them until next season.

Make Sure Your Vehicles Are Clean Before Parking Them Inside

When dirty and muddy vehicles are parked inside a garage, shed, or building shop in Coeur d’Alene, they can quickly make other parts of your building filthy. During the winter, snow, mud, and slush can accumulate on your vehicle. Once your car, truck, or SUV is parked inside, these nasty items can melt off, and your garage floor inherits the mess.

To keep your garage clean, make sure the dirty slush is removed before parking your vehicle in the garage. If not, it could create a slipping hazard or leave unsightly stains on your garage floors.

Get Organized!

One of the most obvious ways to make sheds, garages, and hobby shops in Coeur d’Alene cleaner is a clear organizational system. When items are lying on the floor or scattered throughout your garage, it makes quite a mess. Look into storage shelves, hooks, rubber totes, and other supplies that keep all your items separated and easy to find.
