What Not to Store in The Garage

While the garage is a great place to store gardening equipment, bikes, tools and of course, a car, some things shouldn’t be stored in a garage, according to This Old House. Cans of paint won’t last in a garage that isn’t temperature-controlled, and that extra fridge or freezer will consume lots of electricity. Pet food and paper products can attract a variety of four- and six-legged vermin, and propane tanks can present a fire hazard. Keep an ABC-rated fire extinguisher in the garage to ensure safety year-round, and consider an epoxy coating for the floor to keep the space cleaner.
