3 Garage Problems You Don't Want To Deal With

For me, a garage is a really great addition to any home. If you use it conventionally, then you can get your car off the street and keep it safely tucked away. This reduces the chances of it getting stolen/damaged, which can actually decrease your car insurance premium! However, use it unconventionally, and you’ve got some extra space for your family to utilize.

Unfortunately, there are a few issues that come with a garage. Some can be very minor, while others are large problems that take up a lot of your time and cost money to fix. Keeping that in mind, here are the garage problems you don’t want to deal with:

There are three main areas of a home that are susceptible to pests; the attic, basement, and garage. It’s very easy for little rodents to get into your garage if you’re not careful. While there they can build nests, breed, and turn your garage into a rodent farm pretty quickly. Regular readers will remember I posted an article the other week about dealing with pests. You can see it here if you haven’t read the advice and want to learn how to keep rodents away from your garage. It’s not just rodents you need to be wary of, garages are also a popular place for wasps to create nests and wreak havoc. If you keep bins in your garage, make sure they’re properly covered and sealed as they can attract those black and yellow pests. Trust me, you don’t want to deal with any pest problems in your garage.

Broken Door

Having a broken garage door is one of the most frustrating things ever. They’re not like regular doors where you can maybe force them open again. They’re large contraptions that will be very hard to budge if they break and get stuck. Furthermore, fixing a broken door can be very expensive. As it states here, the best way to prevent a garage door from breaking is with maintenance. Ensure you keep maintaining and looking after your door, treating it properly, and you won’t have to face this very annoying problem.


Garages have a tendency to start off as something good and helpful, but transform into a mini landfill site. Everyone with a garage is guilty of using it as storage space from time to time. We throw old things in there to get them out of the house and free up space in the home. Before you know it, your garage is literally packed full of rubbish, and you can barely move. This ruins the whole purpose of a garage, and you won’t see any benefits of having one. Not to mention that clearing out all the rubbish will be very time consuming, stressful, and possibly disgusting. You can find advice here if you want to learn how to clear your garage with minimum stress. In truth, the best advice is to not let it get to a bad state in the first place. Don’t fill it with rubbish and you won’t face this problem.

All three of these problems are so bad you don’t want to deal with them - ever. Thanks for reading and feel free to comment with any other garage problems you never want to face.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
