When you decide to buy a shed, it needs a little more care than just the occasional dusting to keep it in perfect shape. To keep your garden shed in excellent condition for years to come, it requires ongoing maintenance to prevent pest invasions and avoid rust.

Here are some of our top recommendations for simple, doable garden shed maintenance to ensure its long-term functionality.

Clean Up Often

Most homeowners hate having to hear that in order to keep their space clean, they need to clean. However, if you keep your compact garden shed clean on a regular basis, you’ll be more likely to use it effectively and make sure it lasts for many years.

You can save money and time by investing a few minutes now and then in sprucing it up. Setting up a frequent cleaning schedule, like every Saturday morning, also allows you to routinely check your shed for breakage brought on by bad weather, pest infestations, or water damage.

Remember to remove any leaves or debris that have accumulated on the roof and in the gutters. Doing so will prevent mould and mildew growth and ensure water is properly diverted from the shed.

Use Quality Products

It may be possible to save a few bucks here and there by utilising homemade or generic remedies, but we cannot emphasise enough how important it is to use high-quality products to preserve your galvo shed.

Using the best products based on our professional recommendations can save your investment in the long run, from wood treatments to lubricating door hinges and even adding extra rust protection.

Organise and Arrange

People often underestimate just how much of a difference regular organising and arranging their space makes. Your shed is no different. Seasonal decluttering can help you get rid of expired pesticides, provide you with an idea of what you need to replenish, such as compost, or even do a run-through of the condition of your garden or work tools and equipment.
