Stahl storage offers numerous portable garden shed options that you can install in your backyard to spruce up your garden area. During the winter, garden sheds often act as a storage room to store different types of items and thus, you pay less attention to their cleanliness or maintenance. However, as summer arrives and you start to spend more time outside or in your garden, it might be a great way to have a little extra space where you can spend your time.
Therefore, cleaning your shed before summer arrives or even during the season is important so you can spend some time there. However, there are certain tips that you must know before cleaning your garden shed. This blog post highlights some crucial steps for cleaning your garden shed.
Take Out Everything And Clean Your Shed
Before you begin to clean your shed, it is necessary that you take everything out from it. If you have stored different equipment and items, it is necessary to take them out before you clean your shed.
Once you have taken everything out, you can then get rid of the cobwebs in the corners and above doors and windows. You can then clean up spills and sweep the floor. During this process, look out for loose floorboards or anything that might need repair and call a shed company to repair it immediately.
If your shed is dirty, give it a wash. After that, you need to organize your things and other clutter and get rid of the stuff that you don’t need.
Refresh Your Landscape
You tend to not put as much effort into maintaining your landscape or garden area during the winter as most of the time you spend is spent indoors. However, as spring rolls around you can start to put in a little effort to refresh your landscape and spruce up the garden area. Trim the grown-up grass and plant new flowers and cacti. You can also create a stone, gravel, wood chip, or brick pathway.
Prepare For Pests
Pesky spiders, ants, pine beetles, wasps, and rodents tend to hang around your shed in the summer. Therefore, it is important that you maintain your garden shed to avoid deterioration caused by these pests. Take the following steps to avoid the accumulation of pests around your shed.
- Eliminate water and food resources and make sure there is no breeding ground for insects or hydration supplies for rodents.
- Eliminate any option for shelters, such as newspapers, wooden piles, or cardboard, as these are excellent places for pests to breed.
- Close off entrances where you think insects and pests may try to enter. Inspect your shed and seal it completely to avoid bugs from entering your shed.
Cleaning up your garden shed to make it ready for the summer means you are heading towards having a great time outdoors. During the winter, less focus is put on their cleaning and maintenance. However, as summer arrives, it is necessary to clean up your shed and prepare it to use in this season. Apart from the ways mentioned above, you can also call in the professionals to check your shed, repair it, and clean it if necessary.
