Makeovers Organization Flooring

Safe storage in your garage

Garage makeovers are about more than just organization and clean looks.  Safety is another consideration as garages are often storage areas for toxic substances.  Pesticides are among the most dangerous substances in your garage, and if you’re tackling a garage reorganization, here are some things to keep in mind as you plan for pesticide storage, thanks to this WikiHow article.

  1. Keep your pesticides in their original packaging.  This packaging is designed for safety, contains all the proper warnings, and offers better shelf life.  Packages of powdered or granular pesticide should be placed in moisture-proof containers.
  2. All pesticides should be stored in a cabinet that’s lockable or out of the reach of children and pets.  Keep in mind that kids can climb or stack items to reach upper shelves, so a lockable cabinet is best.
  3. The cabinet should be located away from direct sunlight and water leaks.  Also take care to place the cabinet away from ignition sources such as furnaces or hot water heaters.
  4. Limit the amount of pesticides your storing by buying only what you need in the short term.

Whether you need a complete reorganization or just a safe storage area in one part of your garage or basement, we can help you make it happen. Contact us and we’ll get to work for you.
