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:

Pests

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 http://www.atthefenceonline.com/2017/09/what-to-do-about-those-fuzzy-uninvited.html 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 https://www.tiptopgaragedoors.com/lp/charlotte, 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.

Rubbish

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 http://www.oprah.com/home/how-to-clean-out-your-garage-spring-cleaning-tips-peter-walsh 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.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
