How Do I Keep My Garage Dry?

A clean and dry garage creates a safe and healthy environment. Moisture can damage items in your garage or mold can develop, leading to serious problems.

Additionally, wet and slick garage floors can lead to accidents.

There are several steps that can be taken to make sure your garage (which is the gateway to your home) can be kept dry and safe:

*Seal cracks in the walls and floors.

*Check windows for air and water infiltration and insulate where necessary.

*Wipe moisture off your vehicles with shop towels – this may seem time-consuming, but it is important to prevent condensation.

*Use a dehumidifier, if necessary.

*Be certain that your overhead door is properly sealed.

A poorly-sealed overhead door can be a major cause of water and air infiltration. Stopping that infiltration obviously creates a cleaner area and saves money.  

To put it in a broader sense, it’s time to Stop The Snirt in your garage or shop building.

Okay, first of all, what is snirt? Traditionally, it is the unsightly and messy combination of snow and dirt that can blow underneath or through the sides of your poorly-sealed overhead door.

Snirt also can be water/rain, leaves, bugs, mice, snow, grime and even snakes moving under your door or through the sides. Heat loss is also a major concern, costing Americans millions of dollars a year.

Infiltration of sand and fine particles of dirt can be very difficult to deal with. Keeping the dirt out can reduce your clean-up time greatly and just make your life a little easier.
