Protecting your cars and garage is always worth your time and resources. As a true car enthusiast, you know the value of every single car you own and the cost of every item in your garage. The best way to protect your cars and garage from vandalism, theft, and natural causes is by investing in your garage. Here are three easy ways to protect your cars and garage:
1. Install a security system
A security system is a worthwhile investment when you consider the value of your cars and everything you have in your garage. Today’s security systems can do everything from alerting you in the event of a break-in to notifying you if there’s a fire in your garage. It’s important to add motion detectors near your windows and doors since they are access points to your garage. The use of outdoor cameras and motion-activated lighting is another way to increase security. You’ll be able to track unwanted movement outside of your garage and anything happening at night.
You can either pay to have your security system installed or go the DIY route. Opting for the professional install route may cost more but whatever you decide to do comes down to your budget and what you’re most comfortable with.
2. Frost your windows
To reduce the chances of people peeking through your garage windows, you can frost them with spray paint. Doing so prevents anyone from the outside a clear look at your cars and other valuables. If you don’t want to frost your windows but still want more privacy, consider installing curtains. Curtains can be easily removed should you decide to move. Either way, you can reduce the chance of burglaries by blocking people from looking into your garage.
3. Use self-draining RaceDeck garage flooring
Unfortunately, criminals aren’t the only threat to your cars and garage. Mold and mildew can grow which will damage your garage and the interior of your cars. Not only are mold and mildew bad for your lungs and your expertly detailed cars, but they also lead to bad odors.
A simple way to reduce mold and mildew in your garage is by using the patented self-draining RaceDeck Free-Flow garage flooring system. Every RaceDeck flooring tile is fully channeled to allow air and moisture to escape. This unique design helps eliminates odor-causing mold and mildew. With RaceDeck flooring, you also benefit from the odorless installation which means there are no toxic epoxy fumes when you lay each RaceDeck garage tile exactly how you want to.
Safety and security are important when it comes to your garage and the cars inside. With these tips, you can start to get the most out of your garage and enjoy it for years to come.
