Keeping Pests Out of Your Garage

It’s common to discover unwanted pests crawling around your home, but it’s not pleasant to find these unwanted guests destroying sections of your home. They might be a breeding ground in storage rooms such as your garage, so it’s best to start inspecting your home before things get out of hand with the unruly pests.

The primary goal here is to remove any existing pests and prevent any more pests from coming in. The most obvious sign to start with is to start cleaning your garage by sweeping out dust, leftover food crumbs, throwing away clutter, and so on. It is important to keep your garage space neat and organized so that it reduces the possibility for pests or bacteria to find a home within the mass of clutter that may be present in your garage.

While cleaning your garage, inspect each corner for any potential cracks. The best way to keep your garage free from pests is to prevent them from getting any access into your garage in the first place. Begin by checking for cracks in the window gaps, walls, foundation or ceiling. If you spot any, you can easily seal them off with some silicone caulk.

Much like checking for cracks, your garage door also needs some inspection as well. If you’ve already cleaned out your garage, concealed all cracks, laid out some traps, and remove food trails but pests are still coming in, the problem may lie within your garage door. Having regular garage door repair maintenance is important to keep everything running smoothly on the days where you need it the most.
