Getting Your Car and Home Ready for Winter

Fall means that winter is sure to be coming soon. With that in mind there is a lot that needs to get done before the snow begins to fall. Prime Custom Builders understands that over the course of the summer the garage can get messy with the kid’s toys and the lawn tools. Often things get thrown into the garage causing it to be blocked. This can become inconvenient in the summer and even more so when the ice and snow come about. Prime Custom Builders wants to help you get your home tidied up for the winter that is soon to be upon us.

Garage

Keeping your garage clean in the winter time is critical when it comes to saving 30 minutes of your morning. No one likes to scrape the ice off their vehicle in the morning, inevitably causing you to be late to work. However, by taking the time now to organize your garage while the weather is still relatively nice, will help to make sure that not only can you park your car in the garage but that you will also have the need tools and supplies ready and easily accessible. Wintertime means that sheets of ice are bound to form, and snow will be falling. Organizing your garage in a way that allows for easy access to shovels and ice melts.

Car

It’s one thing to have your car parked in the garage to keep it safe when the snow is falling but an entirely other thing when you have to go out driving in it. Being prepared to drive in the snow for the worst to happen is important. This means that you need to have a few necessities in the trunk of your car in case you get stuck in the snow. Here is a list of some of the essentials to have in your car:

  • Ice Scraper/Snow Brush
  • Shovel
  • Winter Clothing
  • Emergency Blanket
  • Reflectors
  • First Aid Kit
  • Flashlight
  • Chain
  • Jumper Cables
  • Phone Charger
  • Food and Water
