5 Critical DIY Tips to Protect Your Garage from Flooding and Flood Damage

Excess water can damage the structure of your garage, including the foundation, walls, and floor. Furthermore, water can damage the valuable possessions that you store in your garage.   Besides the immediate harm that water causes to walls and stored items when it floods your garage, there are lingering effects as well. Floodwater that is left unattended can lead to the growth of mold and other microbial organisms that destroy your belongings and create health problems.   Garage flooding is a serious issue that you must fix as soon as possible to protect your home, possessions, and well-being. There are five easy steps to securing your garage from future harm when thunderstorms roll through or when snow piles up and melts quickly.   1) Use Flood Barriers and Sandbags to Protect Your Garage from Flooding   If you are looking for a quick fix because storms are heading your way, you can use sandbags and other flood barriers. This is not a permanent solution to ongoing flooding troubles, but it can help you while you work on a long-term solution.   Sandbags redirect water away from your garage towards the street, storm drains, and roadside gutters and drainage ditches. Flood barriers like sandbags do not provide a seal for you garage, but they usher away enough water to reduce garage flooding when experiencing a massive downpour.   2) Install Adequate Drainage to Protect Your Garage from Flooding   Street drains and gutters sometimes overflow during flood conditions, and the excess water can collect in your yard and driveway, and eventually land in your garage. When your drains and gutters cannot keep up with storm conditions and regularly create a swamp in your garage, you will need to install a tre

5 Ways to Deal with Snow Melt in the Garage

While we love the snow that winter brings, we could not say the same when it comes to the snowmelt. Just imagine that when we get off to sleep at night peacefully, but we will find out the next day that the snow covering at least a meter on the ground already gives us a massive headache. Not only is shoveling off such an arduous task, but the aftermath in the garage is also a matter of utter importance. A garage is a sensitive place, we realized sooner. It is a space where we park our cars, store our stuff and even do workshop activities. And we would not want damages in that very space. When the road salts get in the garage, it causes havoc on the floor and even to the surroundings as rusts begin to form when not dried quickly. Humidity is also another factor that should be ruled out in garage maintenance. Wet floors also pose a concern as accidents are bound to happen like slipping and hurting ourselves.
Major Causes of Garage Floor Damages in the Winter
Ice, salt, and sand are some of the elements that seem unnoticeable but will cause major problems in your garage. Salt and sand are usually used to liquify or de-ice the roads during the winter season. And these will most likely end up in your garage as they tend to stick to your car tires and soles of your shoes. It may seem harmless at first, but salt and sand cause erosion and stains that are hard to manage. How? Salt when mixed with water will form crystals and gradually per

9 Sports Popular Among Women

Men and women are built differently. This is why in the world of athletics, they do not start on the same playing field. There are separate categories for men and women, considering that men’s athletic abilities are stronger than women's. This might be caused by many factors, the first one being physical. According to Science Daily, the upper bodies of men have 75% more muscle mass than women and they also have 90% more strength. Given this consideration, to compete or compare them with each other is unfair. Another factor why men could be considered superior in sports is societal. Most people raise their kids based on societal gender norms. They would enroll young boys in sports while young girls would take an interest in crafts. There is also a bigger sports industry, with wider audiences, for male sports than that of women. There are many other factors that are into play but this is not to say that women should be taken aback in playing a sport just because society says that it’s for a man or that it’s male-dominated. Time and again in history, women have proven their athletic abilities and have excelled in sports often linked to male dominance. Plus, the stereotypes don’t matter when women could benefit a lot from playing a sport. These benefits include living a fit and healthy lifestyle, widening one’s network, acquiring skills, and forming life values. Most sports are played by a team and girls would learn a lot from playing with others. They are taught motor skills as well as the values of camaraderie and sportsmanship. Other than that, being engaged in sports makes one more self-confident and understands the value of both victory and defeat.

Tips on How to Earthquake-Proof Your Garage

You will never know when natural calamities will occur. Not that we are waiting for them to happen, but it is important to make sure that you are ready for the worst scenarios before they even wreak havoc. The first step to lessen the disaster risk is to have your home inspected. Structural problems may be present, which could make your home more vulnerable to damage. And in most cases, if your home is built before the year 2000, there is a greater chance that the structure is not up to par with the current seismic building standards. Homes that are not properly retrofitted by a professional would suffer the most post-earthquake. The home will be unlivable and would cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars for it to be repaired if it can be repaired at all. Others may have earthquake-proof homes, but the garage may be a different story. Many homeowners treat the garage as an unofficial part of the livable home so standards may be different. However, homeowners use the garage to store their vehicles and other important items. So, it is time to form a different way of thinking when it comes to garage safety. Here are some ways to bring your house to current standards and be earthquake-resistant.

Earthquake-Proof Your Home and Garage

Farm-to-table in your garage, is it possible?

You say it’s organic and fresh? Of course, we want that on our plates! “What’s for dinner?” is a perpetually asked question at home everyday. Yesterday, we had pasta. The other night, we had grilled steak. Two nights ago, we had Chinese takeout. And if we are going to list the menu for the past week, we might see a repeat. Just thinking of what to cook--or order if we do not want to cook or simply do not have the time--has become a tedious task for many of us. But it would not be that hard if we get the thrill of having to harvest the ingredients from our own homes. And during these times that COVID-19 pandemic has struck the world and slowed down activities outside our homes, we are advised to stay at home to prevent contracting and spreading the virus. Picking our vegetables from the comforts of our homes will lessen our exposure outside. Healthy lifestyle starts from the food we eat. Thus, in-door farming can be beneficial for the whole family.

What is farm-to-table?

The idea of farm-to-table stems from producing organic food just outside your kitchen, literally. By rule of thumb, it is sourcing organic produce within a 100-mile radius of your home. So why is farm-to-table THAT beneficial to us? It is also by definition a naturally grown produce

Bringing Back Your Garage to Its Glorious Days

You haven’t been fixing your garage for quite a time now. Money has not been a visitor for months in your household, and the garage is the last place you would think to spend your valuable cents on. But one day, you stopped in front of your garage and remembered its glorious days. You are an artist and you love making art using different kinds of materials. The garage was your home. You painted portraits of your cats in the garage. You have made sculptures and ceramics out of clay and cement in the garage. You have made many pieces of wood furniture at home and even sold some to many of your friends and relatives. You have also done a lot of metal and glass work that even your wife, ever critical, has seen marvelous. There was a time when you turned your garage into a roller skating rink because you wanted your kids to have fun at home. There was also an occasion when your wife organized a backyard party and the garage was where the buffet was located. In short, you’ve done a lot in your garage but now, it’s just a pile of garbage. You did not have time to make art anymore because you were busy making ends meet after your five-year-old kid was diagnosed with leukemia. She miraculously survived and it has been five years since then. At present, you already have a job that pays well. Your wife’s buy and sell an online business is taking off. You want to bring your garage back to its glorious days.

In this way, you can jumpstart the project with ease, and will also develop your child’s resourcefulness.

Follow these Steps to Maintain a Clutter-Free Garage

Homeowners immediately think of remodeling the garage at the sight of unmanageable clutter. Paint the walls with brighter colors, expand the space, change the flooring, and the like. While they are welcome developments for the garage, many forget the most basic measure that does not need one to spend so much money on. And that is, keeping the garage clutter-free. After all, the excess clutter may cause the overall downgrade of the space. And by the downgrade, we mean both aesthetically and functionality–a parking space, storage space, central entry point in your house, and a space for workshop activities and hobbies. A garage that functions well and won't make one feel ashamed if the doors are left open is the dream for many. However, very few homeowners do something to achieve the kind of state that their garage should be. But indeed, you got to start somewhere. If you want to improve the condition of your garage, take the following simple steps that are foolproof to maintaining a garage worth envious of. And these will not make you spend a lot of money, but you need willpower and mental conditioning to make this a success.
Throw all the junk that is stored in your garage
It may seem basic and common sense, but many fail to realize and distinguish which ones are considered junk. Aside from the prominent characteristics that junks are those beyond repair, tattered and unusable, another criterion to consider is practicalit

How to Change Your Profession And Find Success

People frequently remain in occupations that they dislike or no longer give them happiness out of a fear to be perceived as failure and a concern that they would fail yet another career route. Contrary to how isolated one or you might be feeling at the moment, career changes are actually common, and the same people frequently switch between jobs throughout their lifetimes. The number of times a person changes careers is not even something the Bureau of Labor Statistics can quantify. It occurs frequently, whether it's something minor like a change in career or something bigger like a shift in industry. In addition to the two just mentioned, there are many other causes. People switch careers for a variety of reasons, including a need for flexibility, a desire for less stress in their lives, prospects for advancement on the corporate ladder or opportunities for an assessment. Additionally, many simply feel a strong need for the acceptance and fulfillment that they currently lack in their lives and employment. Don't misunderstand us. Changing careers requires a significant leap of faith and is not simple. The majority even experience age-related insecurities, yet everyone can succeed. If you put your heart and mind in that thing you are going to undertake, regardless of your age, you will be able to make it happen. Consider the fact that Grandma Moses didn't begin painting until she was 80. Therefore, if she can learn a new skill at a very advanced age,

Ceiling-Mounted Storage Units for Items You Can't Let Go Of

It doesn’t mean that when you don’t use a particular item frequently anymore that you already have to discard it. We are often told that when we haven’t used something for a year or so that we should already throw it away, and rightfully so in many cases as we tend to hoard items and keep them even if they add little to no value to our lives anymore. But time shouldn’t be the only measure. What about the sentiments that you hold for the item? What if it was given to you by your grandma when you were eight years old before she breathed her last breath? What if the item was just only kept until you can hand it down to your younger sibling for use? This will save the family money and you can also pass fond memories to your younger sibling. What if it’s a family heirloom and should be passed from one generation to the next? There are many reasons as to why you are still keeping something under your possession. While others may judge you for still keeping certain items they think you should throw away already, you remain firm that you want to keep these for yourself. So since you’ve decided that you aren’t going to discard these items that you don’t use anymore, you should find a way or a system that will allow you to keep them while staying organized. One way is to store them in overhead or ceiling mounted storage solutions. This type of storage unit is commonly used for items that you use occasionally or are just for keeps. Since you don’t really need to access them on a regular b

Start the Year Right With Proper Garage Storage

The last couple of days marked the end of 2021 and the start of 2022. All were busy preparing for the holiday, whether it be cooking and styling the New Year’s spread, fixing and tinkering the living space, or even taking out and discarding a myriad of items accumulating dust in the garage storage. But whatever it may be that has kept you busy, one thing is certain. And that is, we dare say, “Bring it on, 2022!” No matter how focused we are on the goals, if we use ineffective ways to achieve them, all will only be for naught. Thus, the process and tools are as important as the goals and end products. This is also the same when we want to achieve a clean and organized storage space in the garage. Even if we thoroughly sort and arrange our things, if we use frail and space-hogging storage, cleaning will feel like a task that needs to be done at least twice a month. Imagine all the time and effort you put into the job, and yet it will not be rewarding after all. So, to make the cleanup and organizing work, one must use sturdy and dependable garage storage. Luckily, Fleximounts has a wide variety to choose from. And here are a few of the storage you can trust!
The price is $224.99. If you have extra floor space that you can spare for storage, then the Fleximounts FS24 Giant

Cycling Necessities for Beginners

A cyclist invests in a couple of essential items that assist in his safe and enjoyable ride, aside from the bicycle, of course. One must have proper cycling clothing and bicycle accessories. Purchasing any of these costs you money, so investing in high-quality and durable equipment is crucial. Not only will they last for a long time, but they will also keep you safe. As newbies, you might start cycling out of curiosity, for fun, and as a hobby, but when you get to enjoy cycling further and farther, you will carve a path from being a newbie to a hobbyist and even to a potential athlete.

Cycling Necessity #1: Cycle clothing

The first thing in mind to purchase after the bicycle unit is the clothing. Because you use most of your body muscles when cycling, you will most likely sweat a lot. And this could get intolerable while cycling. It is best to purchase comfortable, breathable clothing with moisture management features. Make sure to check the material of the clothes. One that is quick-drying would be best to make you still feel comfortable when actively cycling. Another thing to take note of when purchasing clothes is to find a good-fitting base layer of clothing, which sits close to the skin. It is likely to move, making you feel more comfortable. You do not need to fix your clothes constantly, which can be distracting while cycling. It helps in maintaining your concentration on the road and your cycling movement. Essentially, the base la

The Ultimate Secrets to Keeping the Garage Clean

If you have a habit of storing items in your garage as is, thinking that you would take care of them later, then most probably your garage looks like a complete mess right now. If you are wondering how we have guessed it right, well, haven’t we all passed through that phase? Winter has passed, and so does spring. You have given yourself a long time as leverage and an excuse to wait for summer to finally jumpstart cleaning your garage. Do not wait for summer to pass again, saying that it is too hot to work in the garage, especially if it involves thorough cleaning. Little do you know, the cycle has already reached a year, and you have not done anything significant to lessen your cleaning workload. So, keep your excuses buried and finally bring yourself to lift that box to the doorway as a start. Cleaning is more of a mindset battle against yourself. It is so easy for your lazy self to win over. But, remember, you are strong and independent, and you will overcome the negative thoughts and triumph over complacency.
First step is to have a vision.
Re-evaluate how the garage should be used as you deem fit. Do you still want to use it traditionally as a parking space? Go ahead. Do you also want it to be an area where you can work on your hobbies and workshop? Good idea! Do you want it to be a repository of your stuff? Why not?


A great garage storage solution is something that would not hinder movement inside a garage. Nor would it cost thousands of bucks for something so simple. And while we are at it, being simple does not mean that it has to be flimsy either. Here comes FlexiMounts to your rescue!

Fasteners of exceptional quality are also included. All gear has been rigorously tested. Suitably fastened to wall studs or thick concrete blocks. "Thus far, everything is OK. The packaging was excellent. Instructions are adequate. I'm 69 years old and have never been much of a handyman, but these (2 x 4' for a total of 8') went up in less than an hour. 2′ depth is ideal, and each bracket is secured with three lag bolts. I had to borrow an impact drill from a neighbor because the bolts were 13mm rather than 1/2′′, but other than that, i was rather satisfied with the result. I encountered difficulties during installation since i was attempting to locate studs through fire-rated drywall. Finally, exploratory holes were drilled, yuck. They appear to have discovered them, as they have not yet begun dragging themselves out of the wall. I don't load it up with a lot of big items, but it's been holding up well. The product is of good quality, and the velcro strips provide a lovely touch." - Reggy A.

Maintaining the Garage Shouldn’t Be as Hard as You Think It Is

Have you wanted to properly inspect your garage for upkeep but haven't had the time? Set aside time. You shouldn't claim lack of time as an excuse like you always do to avoid doing the task. It is now autumn, and how far back have you planned clearing out the garage? Was it at the start of the year? It has been 10 months late, but as we easily welcome the new season, it is crucial to do maintenance inspections in your garage. You may avoid the headache of having to conduct substantial reconstruction when the components of the garage are close to being beyond repair by doing maintenance inspections, which also help you be ready for the changing seasons. Prevention is always preferable to cure, as they say. The majority of the mechanical activity in our house occurs in the garage. It may be for auto maintenance and repairs, hardware services, or even for furniture and household appliance repair. As a result, the garage is the area most frequently used to store toxic wastes and combustible items, making it particularly dangerous. Thus, it is crucial to always safeguard the garage area and maintain it tidy.
Keep your garage neat and organized.
Although there is an endless list of stuff you can keep in the garage, there is only so much room. You must decide which items belong in the garage and which should be stored elsewhere in your house. You may even

Installation Guide: Lift 4′ X 4′ Overhead Garage Storage Rack GL44B

Using overhead garage storage racks eases the problem of overstoring on the valuable floor space of the garage. When things are carefully tucked away on the ceiling compartments, the ground will open up for your vehicles and activities that you will be doing inside the garage. However, the only downside is carrying the boxes onto the ceiling storage and eventually putting them down when you need something. This poses a danger to you as you might accidentally fall over to the ground due to the weight of the items lifted. In fact, 500,000 people are treated every year for ladder-related injuries and 50% of which are all ladder-related accidents due to individuals carrying items as they climbed, according to AAOS. Fortunately, Fleximounts offers the Lift 4′ X 4′ Overhead Garage Storage Rack GL44B. This storage lift removes the need for a ladder or any heavy lifting, protecting you from potential accidents. It can be raised and lowered by a crank or power drill for a smooth and effortless operation. And it eases access to your items that are high above the garage floor without using a ladder. It can lift a maximum of 108 inches vertically and can carry a maximum weight of 300 lbs. The storage lift has a safe and secure mechanism–a specially designed safety lock prevents any movement when not in use. Use the winding pole to pull out the safety lock on the gearbox, then push back in to lock after use. Moreover, the rack is made of heavy-duty steel cables, which secure the rack in place. The GL44B also boasts flexibility when it comes to compatibility with angled ceilings because of its adjustable length stee

How To: Climate Controlling Your Garage

Climate controlling your garage is essential to get the most out of your garage. Seasons change quickly but it doesn't mean you need to slack from maintaining your garage. One of the reasons you should have a climate-controlled garage is to protect your things especially your car from possible damage. Exposing your car to extreme shifts in temperature can interfere with your car's ability to run smoothly. There are also items stored in the garage that could be damaged by seasonal temperature and/or humidity extremes. To protect your garage storage and other vulnerable items from getting damaged, here are some tips and advice on how you can have a climate-controlled garage. Replace Your Garage Door Another reason you should climate control your garage is that you can enjoy handiworks such as gardening and restoration without suffering from either low and high temperatures. Replacing your garage door would be a perfect start to do that. A simple wind, rain, and sun can also take a toll on a garage door, damaging the insides of your garage. You can choose from installing an insulated garage door to reduce your utility bills. Insulated garage doors hold less heat than uninsulated doors. They can also moderate temperatures just inside the door — where your opening mechanism is usually located. Install Heating/Cooling Units Putting up a heating and cooling unit can benefit your garage big time. If you don’t have this installed yet, there’s a possibility that extreme temperatures during summer and winter can damage the materials you have inside, thus saving you money from repair damages in the future. Proper Insulation Did you know that extreme heat or extreme coldness can affect your vehicles and other objects inside the garage? It also goes with wood and metals inside your garage, which can easily break due to humidity and temperature changes. With proper

Practical Tips on How to Live a Happier Family Life

It doesn't really matter how many hours you spend with someone if your love language is quality time. Most likely, they don't even count. The quality of time they spent with the individuals they care about the most is what counts to them. Gary Chapman, a marriage therapist, created the five love languages after noticing patterns in the tales of married couples. If you haven't heard of them, the five love languages include receiving gifts, words of affirmation, acts of service, physical touch and quality time. Chapman later published a book named "The Five Love Languages." A person's primary means of receiving and expressing love is known as his or her "love language." Today, we focus on one particular love language to learn how to truly discern whether it is what we truly desire.

Spring Cleaning Tips: Avoid Second Guessing and Get Rid of These Items ASAP

What’s stopping you from jumpstarting spring cleaning? Oh, we can think of a number of reasons. One, it could be that spring is the perfect weather to explore outside after being cooped up at home during the drab and cold winter days. The blossoms are in full bloom. Imagine strolling in the park while under the canopy of thick trees. Or two, it could be that you have been deferring deep cleaning because you do not know how and where to begin. Understandably so because the winter season from towards the end of last year to the start of this year had been full of celebrations and holidays. There are a lot of decors that have been used to adorn the house, gifts left unused but you just cannot simply dispose of anyway. And did we mention sports gears that have been left parked somewhere around the garage because the snow and extreme cool weather is not conducive for playing sports, and lawn or garden equipment that is rendered useless during the onset of snowfall? All these reasons are perfectly valid. But postponing spring cleaning because of these is illogical in the long run. The faster you start with a daunting task, the easier and quicker it will be to finish it. Great rewards await you in the end. A useful tip when spring cleaning is to get rid of items without second-guessing yourself whether the item deserves a space in the storage. The faster you decide to keep or dispose of, the better for your decluttering process. Now, it’s time to take some drastic cleanup action by clearing these items out of your garage pronto!

What a Taurean Home Would Look Like

We’ve hit April 20 in the calendar which means it’s the official start of the Taurus season. It will run up until May 20 so are you ready for the season of the most sensual out of all the Zodiac signs? With an earth sign and represented by a bull, you may think that Taureans love action and loud environments but they actually prefer the opposite. Taureans would always choose a calm and serene environment where the sounds are soft, the aroma soothing, and the flavors are succulent. They always long for a good pampering session because they are hard workers who deserve the reward. This is when they feel they’ve done the work and are most content when they already deserve to be pampered. Taureans would love essential oils because they will relax and give them a soothing feeling. Aside from pampering themselves from time to time, Taureans are very practical with their money. Again, they are hard workers so they know what it entails to earn a fortune. They don’t go the easy route and try to look for hacks. They work hard and show up for their friends when they’re needed. They are very reliable, trustworthy, and loyal. You would want to be in a professional relationship with a Taurean because they are loyal to their allegiances and commitments. They are also very dependable and devoted lovers. They’d stay and be happy in long-term relationships, although they can be stubborn at times. Still, what they value the most is loyalty and security so they would work hard for all aspects of their lives to be s

How to Paint Your Garage

We’ve said it time and again—it’s no surprise that the garage is often neglected. If you think about it, it’s ironic because the garage is home to the most expensive equipment you own including your cars, power and utility tools, camping gear, sports set, bikes, lawn equipment, and other prized belongings. Even then, the design of the garage looks underwhelming. There are areas with unfinished plywood and studs, drywall is taped, and the floor is left undone. Some might not give the effort because they think it will take so much of their time. This is far from the truth because it won’t really require a drastic change for you to want to spend more time in the garage. You could transform the functional space in an instant by simply painting it. Before diving into the painting job, you have to prepare the garage walls first to yield better results. The first is to put down everything that is hanging on the walls and move your possessions away from the walls. Determine what area you’ll paint and cover the walls that you wouldn’t. The second is that you have to make sure that ventilation is proper for painting. Painting has fumes that may cause health hazards if you breathe in them for too long so before beginning your painting project, check the ventilation first.

Time to Organize Your Garage. Here's why.

Just by looking at your messy garage, you already feel overwhelmed to even pick up anything and start organizing. But nothing gets done just by looking at it and the gargantuan pile of garbage you’ve accumulated won’t be cleaning itself. First off, it may look like a lot to tackle right now but if you take it one step at a time, the next thing you know you've already done and you would have a brand new clean garage. Next, you don’t have to do it yourself. You can always ask for help from your friends, family, and professionals to give you a helping hand. If you need more motivation, here are reasons why you have to clean that garage as soon as possible.
1. If you clean and organize your garage, it won’t invite pests.
It makes sense why you don’t devote time to cleaning your garage. It’s where your car is parked and where utility tools are stored that don’t get used every day like dishes and cutlery. The cleanliness of your garage won’t really affect your day-to-day household but if you leave it dirty, pests would invade it and might even ruin your precious equipment that was not cheap at all to get. So save yourself some money and filth! Clean and organize that garage because you would be regretting it in the future.
2. If you tidy up your garage, there will be more space for storage and room to

How to Turn Your Garage Into Your Home Office

If you have been doing remote work for months now, you know the hassle of working at a stop-gap desk in a corner of your home. It can be pretty inconvenient if you have to work with computer setup and a pile of paperwork on the side. What you can do is to look around your home for extra space. Your garage would be a great alternative if it has the right dimensions. However, you would need to refer to your state’s local residential code to ensure that your garage could be converted into a smart office. Doing this kind of project needs extensive planning because it might cost you more if things go awry. You also need to think of your existing garage layout as well as the kind of aesthetics that you want to incorporate. Getting the basics installed If you are bent on turning the garage into a workstation, you need to install the following to make your renovated office comfortable. 1.Flooring -- Check your garage’s flooring if it’s cozy enough to make the office comfortable during all seasons. Add tiles and carpets as well so you can reflect your aesthetic taste. 2. Walls -- Most garages have poor insulation so you can add a reverse-cycle air conditioner for cross-ventilation. Your interior walls should be designed to promote airflow when the windows are open. 3.Lighting -- Lighting is important in any home office. If there is no natural light streaming in your windows, you would want the right blend of task and ambient lighting. You can also replace the old garage door with translucent glass panels. Doing so can also improve ventilation. One step at a time You can start slow with your project. In terms of the overall look, you might want something neutral so your garage-office looks more spacious and tidy. Add

The garage is one of the last things people spend their money on, and understandably so. People have too many expenses that should be paid every month such as college debt, mortgage, electricity and water bills, food, clothes, and more. The garage, often neglected, is at the bottom of the list. As long as you can store things somewhere or you can park your car in the garage, never mind the paint that is already wearing off. Never mind the holes and cracks in some corners. Never mind that it’s hard to regulate the temperature inside. Never mind that it looks like a pile of trash when you roll out the garage door. But what people don’t understand is the instant life upgrade they get from fixing, renovating, redesigning, or even just cleaning their garage. That vacant space can serve many functions for you and your family and that potential is being untapped when you don’t go out of your way to do something about your messy and stinky garage. Lucky are you that there are sales of great quality garage items that you can get an instant upgrade at a discount. Since you don’t leave that much budget for your garage, grabbing offers from sales and promos is one way for you to not break the bank.

Building a Home Gym in Your Garage

You may think that you no longer need to put up a home gym now that fitness centers are back in operation. For many, it’s better that they exercise with other people because it helps motivate them to put in more work. Still, there are some who prefer to work out alone, with no judgmental eyes when they break a sweat. And even when gyms are already open, lockdown rules change all the time. New variants of COVID-19 have emerged and many people are being driven to go back home and stay safe from the virus. This is when a home gym comes in handy. You are not reliant on changing COVID-19 rules; you can pick up a dumbbell anytime and work out while you watch TV or chat with your partner. You may have been busy with work the whole day and want to exercise. You don’t have to account for commute time or consider opening and closing hours of the gym. You don’t have to wait for your exercise buddy and most importantly, you don’t need to pay a subscription you might not be able to use. Starting your home gym requires start-up cost but you’ll be able to use it an unlimited number of times and you could also share it with other people in the household. Don’t look far and wide for extra space in your house. Your garage can easily be your fitness space. First, take your stored items in the garage off the floor by installing ceiling-mounted or wall shelves. FlexiMounts has durable and heavy-duty offers that could lift your belongings without causing accidents or damaging your belongings.

7 Things to do On Father’s Day

This year, Father’s Day will fall on June 19. Do you already have plans with regards to what your family will do on that special day? It’s that one day in the year that we celebrate our dads and make them feel extra loved. They are usually not as sentimental as moms are, or they appear to be not that emotional, but we believe that no matter how tough they look, they have the softest hearts for their children. Of course, there are many different versions of dads. We have the dad figures, either a single mom who served as both a mom and a dad or a friend or stepfather who filled in the shoes of being a dad in lieu of the absence of the real father. We have the single dads who serve as both the mom and dad in the family. And we have the conventional dad, who is a loving husband to mom and a doting father to the kids. Whatever your setup is, we’re sure you will have a blast this Father’s Day in the company of one another. But you’re probably thinking of what you can do now. We crafted some ideas on what activities you can do with your fathers and the whole family on Father’s Day.
1. Play games.
Dads often love playing with their children, no matter how old they are at the moment. They would crawl with babies and get dirty with them in the mud. They would jump with toddlers and have fun in the park. They would play puzzles with

Cold Season Garage Remodelling

It appears that the carport renovation folks had scheduled for the warmer months hadn't really taken place. It's possible that the hectic schedule managed to hinder those earlier plans or that reality stood in between an individual and this renovation. Since that chilly season has come, people are assuming that it will be weeks until their intentions to improve the carport would be able to turn into reality. With the cooler conditions, it's clear that a chilly carport renovation is out of the question this season. But no need to worry because it is not canceled in any way, shape, or form.
Carport renovations may indeed be carried out at any time or season.
It doesn't matter whatever sort of environment someone resides in; a carport renovation may be completed at whatever season, including the colder months. Whenever it pertains to changing a messy, physically unattractive carport to become a harmonious and lovely area, adverse climate and freezing conditions aren't a hindrance to achieving this goal. After all, there are several advantages to completing a carport renovation now rather than delaying the warmer seasons. Below are the reasons for how and why it is appropriate to give your carport a facelift throughout the colder months.

Train Like A Winter Olympian: Workouts You Can Do In Your Garage

The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics kicked off last February 4 with elaborate and mesmerizing opening ceremonies. This year’s Winter Olympics is set to break records and mark a lot of firsts. Crowd favorite figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan defends his title and attempts to get back-to-back-to-back golds. Warm countries like Haiti and Saudi Arabia participate in the Winter games for the first time. A little bit of a trivia is that there is no equivalent word in the native language of Haiti for winter. Next up would be Jamaica which enters the Olympic stage after 24 years in the bobsleigh event. And then there is American snowboarder Chloe Kim who shot to global stardom as the youngest female athlete to bring home the gold medal. There are 109 medal events across 15 sports. And this year, seven new events are added namely Mixed Team Snowboard Cross, Mixed Team Short Track Relay, Mixed Team Ski Jumping, Mixed Team Aerials, Men’s and Women’s Big Air or Freestyle Skiing, and Women’s Monobob. The parade of athletes was one of the highlights of the opening program. And you begin to wonder as they carry their respective country’s flags, the pride they have in their hearts as they walk, and up to some extent the training they had to undergo and endure to reach the Olympic stage. We have an idea that they spend grueling hours in the gym to condition their bodies and perfect their routines and skills, but we can only see the surface through media interviews and social media posts.

How To properly keep things inside the garage

When people think of an area on their property, the garage is the first place that comes to mind when we are talking about the messiness of one area. This should be a no-brainer since this area tends to be the catch-all of every item that people may have lying around the house. This is also the part where big items are being stored as well as where people work and finish their crafts. With that in mind, keeping this area clean and tidy should be everyone’s number one priority. You may be wondering why but in a blink of an eye, the whole place can turn into one giant mess. But what are the errors committed which lead to a messy and underutilized area? This all boils down to these particular explanations:

  • Lack of Storage
  • Lack of Free Area
  • People using this as a catch-all storage area
  • Major clutter hoarding
  • Impulsive spending on things they can stock up on

In this FlexiMounts article, we are going over the storage errors people make and the ways they can properly implement better storage for everyone in the house.

How to Store Items in the Garage During Summer

When summer hits, we expect the temperature to rise to a sweltering high level, even reaching 100° F. And in enclosed spaces such as the garage, it can easily reach higher temperatures because of its structure, especially if your location is facing west or does not have a cover like big trees planted on its surroundings. While some garages may be equipped with heat protection and climate control devices installed, however, some do not have the same design nor have the capacity and means as of the moment. So, this is for those who have not yet upgraded their spaces but want the protection they can get to safeguard the stored items in the garage. We all know how the high heat and humidity in the garage during summer can cause damage to the garage surfaces, items, and vehicles. Before we delve into some of the tips on how to properly store your stuff, here are some of the things that you should note when maintaining the garage. When your garage is in line with the direct sunlight all throughout the day, the temperature rise may cause electric components to go haywire and can make some of your stuff too hot to touch, especially if made with metals like bikes, tools, and your car. Quick fixes to this are to keep them at a cooler temperature, where there is more shade and out of the direct line of the sun. And sometimes there may be electrical storms and power outages that may damage portions of your homes to full-on blackouts. It is good to have a single circuit surge protector.

6 Outdoor Sports to Try This Spring Season

Not everyone is keen on getting involved with a sport. They think they are not athletic and aren’t born to just be good at sports. They might have had horror PE stories, always the last person to be picked during practice or training sessions. They might have signed up before for numerous sports, only to be left on the bench because they just didn’t have the athletic prowess that their teammates had. Sports are not for everybody, but we always want to make a convincing case on how it helps build someone’s self-esteem. You get to be more confident in facing life struggles because you understood the concept of defeat early on. You understood that people are different and that you need to find a common ground so that you’ll get along and meet common goals. You understand the value of teamwork and sportsmanship. You understand the importance of knowing your strengths and weaknesses and working hard on them so that you get to reach your full potential. You understand the importance of discipline, of powering through even when motivation is low. You understand the feeling of fulfillment, that you don’t only get when you emerge victoriously but also when you realize how much sports has helped you. You understand the value of hard work. You could only truly enjoy a sport when you realize that you don’t have to be good at it at first. It takes practice, dedication, and commitment to master a sport. If not, you still get valuable lessons along the way. We listed down below some sports that you would love

The Secret to Doing Many Activities this Spring Season

There are many things you can do this spring season. For one, you don’t have to stay indoors all the time since many people are already vaccinated. The Winter season is already over and the chunks of snow that once filled up the streets are already gone. You are free to frolic around (but still mindful of following some health protocols) and wander outside, enjoy life, and take a breath of fresh air. If you’re into sports, you may play tennis at the public park. You may go to a golf course near you and have a chill match with your best buds. If you love cycling, you can go to the best cycling spots and enjoy chill rides with your family and friends. If you like to jog or run, you may go farther than the park near your neighborhood. Or you may hit a school field to play a heated match of football. Or you may want to go rowing in a lake that’s half an hour away from you. If you’re into cooking and hosting friends, you may invite them over to a garden party. You may prepare tables and chairs for everyone or even set up a picnic-style kind of get-together. Or you may ask the whole group to meet up at the park and have a picnic there. If you’re into camping, there are many camping spots that have opened where you can bring the whole family to enjoy a bonfire night while grilling s’mores. If you’re not up to going outdoors, there are t

Homeschooling: Still the Norm for 2021

The US, and the world in general, has seen a surging number of cases of COVID-19 positive patients as the Delta variant is known to be more than twice as contagious as other variants. To top it off, children, 12 years old and below who are not yet allowed to get a vaccination against the virus, are becoming sick. This is an unfortunate development of the new variant compared to the previous ones that let the children run free from the virus. Nearly 94,000 children contracted COVID-19 virus in a single week, according to reports by the American Pediatrics Academy. At the start of the week, students began to see action by attending school face-to-face. This is to somehow bring normalcy back to students after spending a year of online schooling. However, across the nation, nearly 10,000 students have already been subjected to self-quarantine after exposure to COVID-19 virus. In response, schools have suspended classes. In Georgia county alone, 11 public schools have been closed until further notice. Due to the soaring high cases, we may still be seeing online schooling as the norm. It is understandable that parents are not keen on sending their kids back to the traditional school setting. Not until the pandemic is over, we suppose. Remote schooling has been the key to continuing their education. And as parents, we only want the best for our kids. And that is to provide a good environment for learning, while keeping them safe from the virus. Our homes will be that place for them. Parents and teachers are finding a workable balance to help the kids adj

7 Tips for Garage Spring Cleaning

Spring is here! With the dark, cold days of winter behind us, and the promise of fresh air and summer fun around the corner, many homeowners find that spring is the perfect time to refresh their homes through spring cleaning. Typical annual cleaning tasks include decluttering closets and scrubbing often-neglected areas like baseboards and doorknobs. One chore that’s commonly overlooked is garage spring cleaning. It’s easy to turn this area of the home into a repository for items we don’t quite know what to do with, and since we’re often only passing through the garage, we’re not confronted with the problem every day as we are with a messy pantry, for example. Garage clutter is so overwhelming that in a 2015 survey, 23% of Americans reported that their garage was too disorganized to fit even one car inside. What can we do about our messy garages? Check out our list of garage spring cleaning tips and start thinking about how you can clean and organize your garage to make it work best for you.

1. Create a goal and plan accordingly.

Other than the obvious car storage, what do you want to use the garage for? Often it can be the right space to work on car repairs, woodworking projects and other hobbies. Maybe storage is a priority and you could free up limited indoor closet space by optimizing the garage in new ways. Think about what makes sense for your needs.

2. Declutter.

Plan your process based on what makes sense for your schedule. Maybe you want to take everything out of the garage during a nice weekend and sort it on the driveway. If that’s overwhelming, maybe you can work in sections instead and com

Transform Your Garage into a Space Conducive for Learning

As the pandemic is still going on, children need to come to terms with virtual learning at home. Adults have had to strike a compromise with becoming educators or at-home school teachers who augment their children's studies while being parents, working, and household duties. Remote learning is not something that has been the norm for every learner. Numerous schools remain shuttered as of this day. When summer is over and opens in their neighborhood, many teachers, parents, and children are uncomfortable with the prospect of resuming to the typical learning environment. For a response, pursuing the upcoming academic year will remain prevalent in the country for the next school year. Therefore, what is the optimal school setting for the children? If your home lacks a separate space for continuing education, utilizing the bedroom, lounge room, or game room as a study room is not the most conducive to studying for your children. Well, here is a room where you can resume classes. Why not turn your carport into a school environment for your children? A carport to study area conversion is advantageous for a myriad of purposes, and it does not require significant garage space.

The educational space in which your children study is critical

The learning environment has a significant effect on how children are learning. Most child development experts argue that an optimal class setting fosters a kid's sense of security, confidence, and importance. The outcome would be where the pupils' personality builds and they are encouraged to enhance the education process. Even for most children, studying in busy spaces such as the living room, bedroom, or kitchen can become too stimulating. With house

Why and How to Stay Fit While Pregnant

The mere fact that a bun is in the oven shouldn't force you to stop living. While pregnant, there are many activities you obviously can't do the same way you used to, but that doesn't mean you can't do them entirely. Exercise is one of them. Only 40% of patients exercise when pregnant, according to a study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). There are several myths about exercising while pregnant, but the most common one is that doing so may endanger the unborn child just for the mother to gain or lose weight. Doctors and academics have disproved these assumptions and stigmas, and they even strongly advise pregnant women to exercise. In fact, staying active during pregnancy is good for both the mom and the fetus in her womb. The mother must take great safety precautions and be extremely watchful when her body tells her to stop, such as if she feels abdomen pain, chest aches, or vaginal bleeding. Up until the latter trimester of pregnancy, all pregnant women may exercise. Even if you didn't exercise much before being pregnant, starting to exercise is advised. Just go slowly and avoid overexerting yourself when exercising. Unfortunately, exercising while pregnant is not recommended for persons who have medical issues including asthma, heart disease, or Type 1 Diabetes.
Why Is Exercise Important During Pregnancy?

Is Your Garage Pet-friendly

Our family pets freely roam our homes and we may not be able to monitor them 24/7. A slight opening going to the garage is an invitation for them to enter. Most of the time, our garages contain hazardous and toxic materials that we use for our home cleaning, car maintenance, and other dirty works. And with this, we do not have total control of the environment that our pets will be subjected to. So before anything bad happens, have your garage pet-proofed.

Identify the hazards

Remove toxic threats such as car fluids, coolant, oil, cleaning products, paint supplies, insecticides, pesticides, alcohol, and other chemical wastes. Always check for liquid leaks from your car or supplies and have them cleaned right away. If the garage is the only space you can store these products, place them on sturdy overhead garage storage racks or wall shelves far from your pet’s reach, which Fleximount has according to your needs. Aside from storing them in higher places, you can also put locks on cabinets that are on the ground. We can’t stress enough how proper shelving can not only declutter your garage, but keep your home accident-free. Workbenches, storage spaces and wall-mounted racks should be solid and durable. No storage should be easily toppled, especially when your pet starts to run around hastily in the garage. Not only should you be wary of the harmful liquids, also inspect hazards that can cause entanglement like cables, wires and ropes. Sharp objects suc
