Keeping Your Garage Floor Clean in the Winter

Published on January 30th, 2020

Like many Chicagoans, you probably find that the floor of your garage gets particularly messy during the winter, which can be frustrating. Between the salt, slush, and sand, it’s almost inevitable that you’ll drag some rubble into your garage through footsteps or tire marks. Luckily, if you’re looking for garage door repair in Chicago, or for some tips to keep your garage door as clean as possible for the rest of this winter, read on.

Consider Purchasing Floor Mats

Floor mats are one of my most practical, fool-proof options when it comes to keeping your garage floors clean and dry during the winter months. There are many options to choose from, and if you feel like spending the money, you can even cover your entire garage. When the winter is over, simply roll up the floor mats and store them away until next year.

Dry/Wet Vacuum

Using a dry/wet vacuum is a quick, no-hassle way to pick up rock salt or slush from your floors during the messy winter months. Especially when a storm hits, leaving your garage particularly dirty, this is a quick way to react!

Get Yourself a Squeegee

This may not sound like the most effective option, but using a squeegee is actually a classic trick to rid dirty garage floors of salt and sludge! Simply give your garage floor a once-over with a squeegee, and you can get a lot of slush out in minutes.
