With the recent floods in April and last weekend, it got us thinking about our homes and what we can do to save our belongings from the devastating water.
Of course, in some situations there is absolutely nothing you can do, but with the garage often first hit, it's worth taking a look at how you can get your items off of the floor and onto the wall.
We believe in order to save your items, it's best to keep the floor completely empty, and to this extent we've put together some ideas on how you can do that.
Shelving - surely one of the most popular options to store items and keep them off of the floor. We would suggest installing shelving that hangs from the wall rather than sits on the floor itself. That way, you aren't in danger of floor mounted shelving toppling over if water starts gushing in.
We have some great options available and all are wall mounted, take a look at our diy store for more on the shelving we have in stock.
Hooks and Brackets - a great way to keep your tools, sporting equipment and larger items off of the floor and away from any danger. Our selection of hooks include those for general items that can take mowers, tools and long handled items as well as the specialist ones for kayaks, balls, bikes and fishing rods.
Overhead Storage - adding storage above your garage door, high level shelving or even overhead storage racks are all great ways to keep items dry and keep them out of the way.
Just three simple ways of keeping your stuff safe, should the unthinkable ever happen.
To see how we can help you with your garage storage requirements, you can either get in touch with Tina on 087 802 9186 or pop her an email. You can also take a look at our e-store to see if there is a storage option here that's right for you.
It goes without saying that our thoughts and prayers are sent out to everyone who has been affected by the recent flooding. It's been a very tough time for a lot of people, let's hope we don't see this kind of thing too often.
