These five items need to find a more suitable home

Things Never to Store in

Your Garage

A garage can be a great place for extra storage, especially to keep want inside your home. However, there are some things that it either isn’t wise or safe to store in your garage.

1) Wine:  In the Okanagan we love our wine, but it will not do well in a garage environment. Wine needs to be kept in a temperature controlled area and the lows of winter and highs of summer will not be kind to your vintage.    

2) Paint/Stains:  These products are another that are sensitive to temperature. The consistency of paint can be ruined through the temperature extremes.  Paint and stain should be kept in a cool, dry space.

3) Clothing/Cloth products:  Hats, coats, clothes and other linens can be the ultimate hotel for        mice and other pests. Rodents will ruin these       items and cause a lasting problem when they                nest in them. Paper products can also be

at risk for becoming a pest haven.

4) Food items:  Many food items won’t survive in the garage for long. Canned goods can be affected by temperature changes and fresh food will provide the buffet to the rodents that have recently nested in your clothes. Fresh foods can also attract unwanted insects. Any food items kept in the garage must be sealed and not susceptible to temperature fluctuations.

5) Propane tanks:  There’s nothing worse than running out of propane when you’re barbequing your favourite meal. While it can make sense to have an extra tank on hand, keeping it in your garage can be dangerous.  Many tanks leak to some extent and stray fumes can ignite when you start your vehicle. Propane tanks should be kept in a in a well-ventilated space outdoors.
