Tips for giving your shed the spring clean it deservesAndy Hayes
When you think of a traditional shed, the image you likely have is a building of organised chaos that is situated at the bottom of the garden, right? For many, this is the usual way of keeping your garden tools in one place, but with spring just around the corner, it may be time to bring the big “spring clean” to your shed too!
This can stop your tools from going missing at a vital time when they are needed, as well as giving you peace of mind that all of your equipment is easily reachable.
Giving your shed a thorough clean is also useful for the growing number of people that are making alternative uses for their sheds, as getting your cleaning and preparation done now is a great way of keeping it looking presentable when you want to use your space in the warmer months.
As the weather becomes warmer and generally drier, it may be time to think about giving your garden shed an airing. We’re sure those doors will be open in the summer sun, but we doubt they have been open for prolonged periods over the winter! By airing your shed you are not only helping the place feel fresher but combatting against the build up of damp throughout the building, which can result in mould and damage to the fabric of the interior.
Low moisture levels will ensure that your shed is in the best possible condition going into the period of the year that it will likely be needed most, so preparing in this way will allow you to maximise the time you desire it the most.
Do you have the best storage options?
That organised chaos we mentioned earlier may be something that works for you, but we can assure you there is a more efficient way of running your shed. We are sure you’ve experienced the pain of thinking you’ve lost a garden tool, resulting in you purchasing a new one, only to find the original after the fact!
By utilising said storage options, such as labelled boxes, shelves and hooks to make your walls an area of efficiency, you are able to localise each of the essential items needed for the jobs you perform in the garden, or in the shed itself. You will be able to quickly locate your equipment when needed, making all of your garden work much quicker and a lot less frustrating.
Is it visually appealing from the outside?
Now that you’ve sorted out the inside, its time to take a look at the exterior. After the challenging winter months, a new lick of paint may be required. After all, your shed would have had to endure the rigorous British weather that we have become accustomed to!
A new coat of paint can work wonders in transforming the look of your shed in double quick time. It will not only boost its appeal to any potential visitors you are thinking of welcoming over this summer, but the building will also look a lot better in your eyes too. Wooden sheds should be an area in which you should take pride in, and become a building in the garden that looks just as attractive as the rest of your space.
