You’ve probably noticed that one thing most garages have in common is dust. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you want to keep your garage dust free, here are three basic ways to do that.

1. Regular cleaning

Start by giving your garage a thorough cleaning and then follow up with a weekly dusting and vacuuming to prevent dust buildup. And use a shop vac to suck up the dust instead of a broom that stirs it up.

2. Seal the garage floor

Concrete that’s not properly sealed absorbs moisture and spilled fluids and breaks down over time, creating a fine sheen of cement dust. You can eliminate this source of dust through the application of a coat of concrete sealant, using a sealant that‘s absorbed into the concrete rather than just sitting on top of it. A quality sealant that penetrates the floor prevents the breakdown that creates dust.

3. Repair or replace the door seals

A lot of dust and dirt can blow into your garage under doors that have bad or missing seals. Check the seals on the main door and any side doors, and reattach loose seals or replace those that are torn or broken.
