Snow & Your Garage

Published on November 27th, 2017

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is filled with shopping, eating, and celebrating with family and friends. Unfortunately, the holiday season can cause added stress with all of the shopping, cooking, and of course, cold weather and snow. One problem that many people in Illinois face are snowmelt in the garage. If you have a garage with no drain or sloped floor, you will likely get snowmelt during the winter. Snowmelt can cause several problems to your garage and cause a safety hazard by leaving slippery floors. As your garage door repair Arlington Heights IL company, we have created a list of ways to deal with snow in your garage during winter.

Use A Squeegee

Do you use a squeegee for your glass shower doors? A squeegee is a quick and inexpensive fix to keep snowmelt out of your garage. When the snow melts off of your car and onto the garage floor, open your garage door and squeegee the water back outside.

Brush Of Your Car Before Entering Your Garage

A very simple way to keep snowmelt to a minimum in your garage is to brush off your car before entering the garage. This helps to eliminate the snow you would have brought into your garage if you would have just parked it.

Invest In Fans or Blowers

Purchasing a fan or blower for your garage could get expensive, however, it could end up saving you money in costly repairs to your home. A blower fan helps to dry out your garage quickly and with very little effort from yourself.

Purchase Garage Mats

If you are willing to spend some money, invest in garage mats. There are many options for floor mats that you can purchase for your garage to prevent problems that are caused by snow. Do your research to make sure that the garage mat is the right fit for your garage.
