Dusty Garage? Here’s What to Do

Published on October 26th, 2020

If spending time in your garage causes you to have a sneezing fit—it may be time to get your dust situation under control! We have some tips to help you combat this common problem, so you can come and go from the garage comfortably, or use the space to tackle projects.

Seal Your Garage Floor

An unsealed concrete floor will be penetrated by moisture and continue to break down over time. This breakdown contributes to a continuous sheen of cement dust in the space. We suggest applying a quality concrete sealant that is designed to be absorbed into the concrete. This can help prevent moisture from penetrating the floor and keep dust levels down.

Check the Seal on Your Door

If your garage door is not properly sealed, lots of dust and debris may be blowing in from the outdoors. It’s not uncommon for seals to need repair or replacement over time. Inspect your seals, reattach loose seals, and replace those that show significant wear-and-tear.

Clean Regularly & Dust Often

This one may seem obvious, but regular maintenance can do a lot to keep dust down in your garage! Begin by performing a deep clean on a slow weekend and then continue to dust and vacuum every two weeks (or as needed).
