Thus it helps your car from fading away and getting rusted. There are a few guidelines that can be followed to have a garage in your house. It is very important for your car to be kept in cool place, especially when you’re working on it. Ensure that the engine is cool while working on the engine of your car. This might help your car from any fire just in case. Suppose your car needs any kind of welding and obviously you are working with fire. Ensure that you are protecting your eyes with an eye wear. Ensure that you are not wearing any kind of jewelry or loose clothing while doing the same.

In case your car is parked in a steep or a slope. Ensure that the parking brakes are set in the car. This will prevent the car from rolling down. Another important point to note while working underneath your car is to have a jack stand. At the time of changing your car tires or working on the brakes or in any process that your car’s tire needs to be removed. Ensure that the jack stand is placed properly in order.

Prevention of fire is very important aspect especially while working on your car. There are several incidences where the vehicle has caught fire and people had problems without a fire extinguisher. Due to this reason it is always good, if you have a fire extinguisher in place. This can prevent from a huge loss. Don’t smoke inside the garage. At times there can be oil or fuel spilt on the floor and hence a small spark can lead to an explosion. When you are working on electronic components of your car, we need to ensure that the ignition is turned off.

Make sure that the location where you park your car while repairing has an enclosed area and has proper ventilation. At least a window or a proper exhaust system is important in a garage. This stuffiness can cause breathing problems at times. The engine of your car needs to be cool in case you are putting your hands near the engine. For this you have to make sure that the ignition is off. The cooling fan runs when the ignition is on and engine is hot. Placing your hand near the engine is extremely risky. Do not open the radiator cap especially when the engine is hot. The coolant present is at a boiling point at this stage and results in splashing of the hot steam or the coolant when the cap is open. This can be harmful not only for us but also for the engine.

While parking your car, it is good to keep your garage closed. Having security systems like the ADT security systems or any others installed to your garage is a good idea. These security systems have an alarm system which can signal at the time of any unauthorized entry. Lastly it is important to keep your garage clean. This will help from loss of any important items belonging to your can. It will prevent from any reptiles or insects crawling into your house.
