The garage often becomes the place where items that are broken or no longer used are stored. It is also the place where seasonal items like decorations for Christmas and Halloween and other occasions are stored. When you have a garage door installer come to your home to fix your garage door, it is important that your garage is clear of hazards.
The same goes for your place of business. Making sure your garage is clear and organized for the garage door installer will prevent accidents and help the installer get the job done right.
How will accurate measurements be made?
One reason for this is for accurate measurements can be made. Different measurements will be needed including the the width of the garage door plus a foot on each side which is known as the side room. Accurate measurements for the back room and headroom will also be needed.
How safe it is for the garage door installers?
With a clutter of items all around as the installers work, there are high chances of injuries happening as they may trip over items. Things overhead on garage shelves may fall on them. Chances of items stored in the garage getting damaged are also high. Even the garage door itself can get damaged as it is installed and tested. It is best to put everything aside and offer ample room for the garage door installer.
Cleaning out the garage should include cleaning the floor. Car oil spots and other items on the floor can cause accidents for those working on the door. It will also clear the air so that installers do not have to work around musty, unpleasant smells of things that were tossed in the garage and forgotten. A good working environment promotes a better working relationship.
This would be a good chance to sort out the clutter that has accumulated in the garage. Sort things into piles of items to be kept, those that are to be discarded and those that are to be given away. You can also make some money while you are it by having a garage sale of items that are still in good condition but that are no longer used.
Why not keep the garage clean and clear?
As long as you have to clear out the garage for the door to be installed, why don't you resolve to keep it tidy even after the door is up? After sorting out different items, why not rent a self-storage unit at a facility that is near your home? You can store seasonal items there leaving not only the garage clear but also the rest of the house.
