5 Tips for Getting Your Portable Garage Ready For Spring

portable garageAre you someone who uses your portable garage throughout the year? Do you consider it a seasonal storage solution in winter and a work shed throughout spring and summer? As warm weather approaches, clean up your portable garage with these tips:

1. Do Some Spring Cleaning

Portable buildings often get treated like brick-and-mortar structures: That is, they turn into a storage area for junk of all kinds, some of which you no longer have use for.

So, this time of year, include your portable garage in your spring cleaning plan: Check through everything inside to determine if you really need it. If itís something you havenít used in a while, and have no plans for in the future, either donate it, or if itís beyond repair, toss it.

2. Inspect the Frame for Repairs

Winter wrecks havoc on shelters. Sometimes, itís obvious, through clearly-bent poles or torn canopies. Yet, the subtle things arenít always apparent, from dents to rusted fittings. You want to get the most use out of your portable garage, so, at the start of spring, look at the cover for tears and fraying, and then check the frame for loose, rusted, bent, dented, or otherwise damaged components. Then, after youíve taken an inventory, find the parts and patch kits you need to make repairs.

3. Check Your Vehicle in Storage

Did you put away a boat, motorcycle, RV, or ATV for the winter? While, before storage, you should have winterized your vehicle, once the warmer weatherís here, you need to ensure itís ready for the road. Before taking it out, check for any potential mold, mildew, cracks, or damage caused from animals, and then, get it ready for spring. Depending upon what you own, this could be adding enough fluids, checking and inflating the tires, and then, charging or replacing the battery.

4. Clean Up Any Stains

When you have a vehicle in storage for at least four months out of the year, fluids might leak out and onto the ground or floor you have beneath. These build up over time, and can make the floor of your garage unsightly. As such, springís the time to scrub or otherwise clean up anything that could have dripped out over the winter months.

5. Put Away Your Winter Supplies

The versatility of a portable garage proves to be a benefit throughout the year. Specifically, as the weather brightens and the temperatures go up, the supplies you needed to salt a driveway or shovel snow are no longer needed. As you want to use the interior space economically, keep these inside until the next snowstorm.

Whether youíre looking for a new shelter or replacement parts for an existing one, find a structure suiting your springtime needs at Portable Garage Depot. Browse today for a range of sizes, styles, and strengths.
