What’s the most dangerous place in your home? Although you may not have even thought about that, your garage is, in fact, one of the most dangerous parts of the house. In fact, a recent survey found that 33% of homeowners have experienced a garage-related injury, so here’s how you can achieve and maintain garage safety.
The most important tip that we can give to you is to keep everything organized in your garage. When items are strewn about, it increases the likelihood that you will trip over something. In addition, organize all of your chemicals to ensure that there are no spills or contamination.
Once you have organized everything, make sure that your gas cans are labeled and sealed correctly. As it isn’t recommended that you even keep gasoline in your garage, the way that you keep track of it is very important.
After you’ve finished organizing and labeling, your next step is to simply maintain the status of your organized garage. It’s very easy to let it fall back into clutter, so keep some sort of schedule for how often you clean and organize.
If the task is too daunting for you, there are professionals who will come help you organize and declutter your garage.
